Saturday 31st May 2014

A small loss on Thursday evening thanks to the two non runners in Sharestan’s race, where he just held on after hitting the front too soon. We could have had seven selections on Saturday but that would have meant an outlay of over 15 points so I have decided not to include the following three:…

A decent card at Sandown with the Brigadier Gerard Stakes the highlight and we are playing in three races. This meeting at Sandown is one of my favourites and usually produces a few future winners for the notebook. I hope to be there tomorrow evening unless the weather deteriorates further.

An interesting first day of the Dante meeting including the Musidora Stakes for the fillies. The ground should dry out as the week goes on so the original soft is likley to end up good to soft at worst.
