Well for me the racing over the last month has been of a very poor standard apart from the Cheltenham Festival. To me in football terms its been a bit like no Premier League Action and lots of non league matches.
So it’s great to see the flat start this weekend at Doncaster. Now I’m not saying it’s easy to pick winners but it’s exciting competitive racing especially with the first quality 2 year old race the Brocklesby and the Lincoln Handicap.
My Howies Hottie is a bit different this week as I’m not putting up a horse but giving you some solid advice which is in the majority of early season juvenile races you should always be looking at all the David Evans and Bill turner runners as they have their entries fully tuned and fit to run, also monitor the Richard Fahey and Mark Johnston yards over the first month in particular if these two guys send anything down south.
I have not seen any stand outs for this years Classics as yet so keep em peeled for horses yet to make their debut who could sneak under the radar.
Avidly trainer Julia Fielden – Look like the horse just needed the race last week and will be much sharper for the outing.
Candesta trainer Julia Fielden – Denied a clear run on its last appearance otherwise would have the very least have made the frame.
The Happy Hammer trainer E.Stanford – Ran well in the same race as Candesta and has dropped to a very competitive mark.
Royal Birth trainer S.Williams – Just touched off at Wolverhampton when in need of the run this well handicapped individual should be closely monitored.
Puisque Tu Pars trainer Garry Moore – Impressive winner at Newbury who has been waiting for the drier ground there is more improvement to come.
Back next Wednesday have a good week and be lucky.
