Well mixed fortunes yesterday.
Firstly Doncaster again proved profitable with an impressive win for Limato who breezed through the field to win. Trainer Henry Candy is looking at the 7 Furlongs Foret at Longchamp as his next target. Sometimes fortune favours the brave and we said that Bondi Beach would reverse the form with Storm the Stars and we were proved correct but even so I thought we were fortunate to collect courtesy of the Stewards. Highland Acclaim ran a cracking race to come in fifth. Hopefully some of you got paid out as some bookies such as Bet365 were paying 5 places.
Leopardstown was not so good. Pyromaniac was a non runner. Amazing Maria was disappointing and never looked like getting involved. "She was a little disappointing and has had a long hard season. The ground was maybe a bit tackier than her last three runs," said Jason Kelly, assistant to O'Meara. Bold Thady Quill was slowly away and was being pushed along early on and never was never going to be involved in the shake up.
We have a selections today at the Curragh so down to business....
