John Gosden and Nicky Henderson always seem to be in the headlines with winners galore. They are both still in very good form and I am going to discuss their near to hand possibilities along with the prowess of Ed Walker. Our services High Roller has achieved a 70 per cent this month as I write with 14 winners from 20 selection.
John Gosden has had a very good and productive season so far on the flat but in the last couple of weeks has hit a ‘purple patch’ including Group Race Winners Roaring Lion and Too Darn Hot. John has entries which interest me this week for Daafr and War Eagle who are useful animals. Daafr was out of his depth when fifth in the group2 Superlative Stakes but ran very well in his next race a nursery and that was the level needed at this time. Looks an improver to follow as he will win races. War Eagle was very green at Epsom on debut but got the idea late on enough to give me confidence he could go in soon. Handmaiden caught my eye on her last two runs just beaten on both starts but will take all the beating whichever race is chosen from her three entries. Two others to watch this week from this yard Petit Palais and Repaupo both looking as if they could win.
Nicky Henderson’s yard normally has a quieter time over the summer but this season has seen a change with the yard having quite a number of runners and quite a lot of winners too. Nicky has a number of entries but has four, as I write, at Warwick on Tuesday. One of the entries is Full Bore a quirky animal who threw away a recent win by veering to his right violently at Uttoxeter. Nicky will iron out his problems and this horse could go in at Warwick if declared to run. Beat That a former very smart hurdler could take the novice chase on the card. Henderson also plans a raid on Perth this week with Brave Eagle and Monbeg Legend but for me Monbeg could be the one. Keep the Henderson horses on your radar.
Although Ed Walker hasn’t had a winner for a week, as I write, just over 70 per cent of his horses are running to form. Horses from this yard that catch my eye in the entries are Big Bad Lol who is becoming attractively weighted. Iconic Knight could also turn the yards fortunes this week along with Quality Seeker, Dark Panther and Global Army. Don’t write off Ed Walker yet as I think he can turn placed horses into winning horses. Ed has 25 entries between 24th to 29th September so watch out for his runners from these entries.
High Roller has been having a flying month with a 70 per cent strike rate… that’s 7 winners from every 10 selections… so in September to date it’s 14 winners from 20 selections.
