Well unless you are into NBA there’s been a 48 hour sports blackout which wont be repeated for another year hooray. To commemorate this day I’ve had a good look at the races and noticed some shorter priced acca opportunities as well as some very high quality racing.
1:20 Kem Glen Forsa is touted as a big upcoming star and won with consummate ease at Exeter, up 11lb but down in trip and can account for Lough Derg Spirit.
1:55 Kem Very difficult race as Topofthegame won easily last time and La bague Au roi gets an allowance and has the champ booked. I still can’t see past Santini here though this is the class horse and he will win again.
2:30 Kem Buveur D’air wins then wins the Champion Hurdle, wont even be close.
3:05 Kem Waiting patiently has not been prepared for this race publicly but I cannot believe they will wait 200 days then just chuck it in the King George. Somethings going on here and I’m taking Waiting Patiently to defy the non-ideal ground and beat Thistlecrack.
2:10 Wet Danny McMenamin rode Niechtz to victory 6 weeks ago and rates as a top young prospect and takes 7lb off. Therefore I’m saying Taking Risks can beat Wakanda and Lake View Lad to spoil this one.
And in Ireland…
2:00 Lim Getabird: bang in form class act of the race.
3:10 Lim Seskin Flyer: hammered opposition at Thurles recently and 7lb considered workable.
1:45 Leo Warnaq: good form on the flat and seems to have taken to hurdles well, top jockey.
2:55 Leo Le Richbourg: well weighted and quietly fancied against the better known top two.
330 Leo Fury road: point to point champ never seen before, Gordon Elliot, respected.
Merry Christmas everyone!!!
