Cleeve members selections – Wednesday 20th October

Good Morning everybody, we had four selections on Saturday and here are my thoughts. Rohaan ran no race at all, slowly away and always in rear. The trainer’s rep said the horse ran flat after a long campaign. Casablanca Mix never seemed to be going well and was thoroughly disappointing. Oh This Is Us went…

Cleeve members selections – Saturday 16th October

Good morning everybody, we had one selection yesterday and here are my thoughts on how it ran. Trincomalee was held up off a strong pace, he was challenging when making a mistake at the 2nd last and was again challenging when making another mistake at the last. I must admit the air turned blue and…

Good morning everybody, we had 2 selections on Wednesday and here is a short review. Native Fighter was held up, he came with a run from 3 out trying to go up the inside rail but looked a little short of room, saying that he certainly would not have won and was beaten 3 lengths.…

Cleeve members selections – Wednesday 13th October

Good morning everybody, we had one selection on Monday. Daheer raced just behind the leaders, my personal view is he raced too wide and saw too much daylight. He was produced to challenge around one furlong out but found no extra when needed inside the last half-furlong. He was  well supported into 9/2 but ran…

Cleeve members selections – Monday 11th October

Good morning everybody, we had four selections Saturday and here are my thoughts. Excelerator Express made a few errors and never really got into this, frustratingly his stablemate won the race. Bay Bridge was always travelling well and he took the 15lb rise in his stride staying on strongly to win. Commanche Falls never looked…

Cleeve members selections – Saturday 9th October

Good morning everybody, we had four selections on Friday and here are my thoughts on how it went… Chindit never really looked likely to win although he plugged on for a one-paced third. He has now had enough chances at this level over this kind of distance in my eyes. Herbiers made a mistake at…

Cleeve members selections – Friday 8th October

Good morning everybody, we had one selection on Thursday and here is a short review. Big Les took it up just before 1 furlong out; he was soon challenged by Cold Stare and could not match the winner today. Cold Stare put up his best performance of the season to win this. Big Les was…

Cleeve members selections – Thursday 7th October

Good morning everybody, we had one selection on Wednesday and here are my thoughts. Forgot To Ask was held up in last position, he steadily made ground from 3 out but was still 3 lengths down at the last fence. He flew the last and was gaining all the way to the line which alas…

Cleeve members selections – Wednesday 6th October

Good Morning, we had a selection on Sunday and here are my thoughts. The race really went as we thought with Nuts Well sitting just behind the pace, he took a slight lead at the 2nd last and led at the last running on to win by over 2 lengths. I must mention Gold Des…

Cleeve members selections – Sunday 3rd October

Good morning everybody, we had 3 selections on Saturday and here is a short review. For Hurricane Ivor the ground was much softer than I expected and the horse just did not run his race, the trainers representative said the going was softer than described following the rainfall. Hukum won his 3rd Group 3 race…
