Captain's Blog - Friday 8th June 2012

We are heading to Wales today for a Wedding. It should be a fine event and its ages since I had some champagne, so despite the drive we are looking forward to the venture. In truth it is just nice to get away, even if it is only just for a night. On our way home on Saturday we are planning to divert to the Twickenham Stoop to watch Harlequins play the Widnes Vikings in the Engage Superleague which should blow away the cobwebs of the previous evenings celebrations. This particular trip away means that I will be taking a day away from the blog on Saturday, but will return on Monday with a look ahead to what will be a very busy week for me.

No joy with our selection yesterday I am afraid. Having praised Mirco Demuro for his recent exploits he made me look a complete fool by giving our selection – Capacity at Wolverhampton a poor tactical ride. There was some Karma about in the Midlands however, for he picked up a 12 day ban later in the day for riding a finish one circuit too soon. I am not that mean spirited really as, lets face it, everyone makes mistakes, but this was a howler.

Today I am keen on Free Verse in the 8.30 at Goodwood. This horse needed the trip on her return at Ascot and better can be expected today. She acts well with cut in the ground and looks to be well treated for this handicap. She won a nursery last season in good style in a fast time on soft ground last season and a repetition of that will see her go close. At the time or writing she is 6/1 with a number of firms.

I hope you have an enjoyable Weekend and I will be back on Monday.

All the best.


Todays Selection
