Although Monday wasn't the greatest day in the history of the blog, it ended up serving a purpose! Go Native was massively impressive in winning the flat race at Galway and must go to the Morgiana hurdle with a favourite's chance next month, while managed to lay Cara's Request around evens, having backed it at 14/1.
However the highlight of the day was nailing the Naas maiden hurdle, with Jezki getting up late to catch the well backed Gigginstown acquisition, Ally Cascade, the pair over 20 lengths clear of the rest and they are both more than useful. Also put up the forecast there.
Jezki was my competition entry, so it was a case of happy days for that bet.


Sorry but it's one of those days... after an enjoyable Monday, there's absolutely nothing i want to bet on at this stage. Regulars will know the blog philosophy of picking bets out as selectively as possible, and if a day does throw up nothing, then that's occasionally how it is.

I have to find a competition nap though, and the shortlist includes Swampfire in the Taunton opener, Mundahesh at Wolverhampton if it's a backable price and Rangooned in the first at Catterick.

Just for reference morning am now looking between  couple of others elsewhere, horrid day's racing! You will be able to see my choice on twitter @jimgilch shortly.

Only a couple of pounds/points behind the leader in the monthly table which ends on Wednesday, so do have eyes on that prize and need to get it right.
Thanks for popping in, got my eye on something more interesting on Wednesday and the blog will hopefully be getting stuck in to the Breeders Cup later in the week. Remember my antepost suggestion for the BC Turf, Point of Entry, still very sweet on that, even more so now that it has drawn stall one - almost too good! According to @trakusracing 11 of 12 horses at the last Santa Anita Meeting were won from the horses on the inside in the home straight.
