So, not much to recommend. I’ll keep Bryony, James Bowen and Harry Cobden onside – hey it’s Saturday – but that might be it for Cheltenham.
I’m more interested in Davy Russell’s trip over to Doncaster. Basically, if he has a good day, so will I.
Blimey – not a good day for Davy. So, could have been really bad news for me.
However, I managed to keep Rose Dobbin onside – she very nearly landed a double at Doncaster for me yesterday and banged in another one today. Also, Duke of Navan at 8/1.
I was going to mention Emma Lavelle in my write-up above but was too embarrassed to, thinking little of the chances of her horses on form. That’s the thing about handicapping trainers – sometimes you find yourself backing horses you never would do if you could hold the formbook the right way up. So, a nice win from Enniscoffey Oscar there.
Plus, Briony did us proud again, and James followed her home for the exacta. You’d think I’d had a good day after all that boasting. Actually, I ended up exactly where I started. Which I’m happy with.
