Well as we near that incredulous day transfer deadline day we can expect to hear some amazing rumours if not news from the transfer wheelers and dealers.
You might hear that Lionel Messi was sighted at Bournemouth train station, Gareth Bale parachuting into Old Trafford, Harry Kane spotted in McDonalds opposite the Emirates or even a news flash on Sky that has anyone found Arsene Wengers cheque book which he seems to have been lost this week.
It all adds up to an exciting week for the fans but of course the big winners will be the greedy football agents.
I was happy to see that Channel 4 have lost their horse racing rights to I.T.V as I’m sure once they take over they will perform a much slicker job that will benefit the whole industry. I do hope that when they appoint the new team of presenters they give chances to Matt Chapman, Jason Weaver and Luke Harvey as they have done a top job at A.T.R. with being knowledgeable and entertaining at the same time.
Its been a rough week tipping wise even on my Eye-Catcher service but I know and so should you by now that I always get it right in time. Also as you are all aware I dont pull any punches and when I’m bad I’m bad but when I’m good I’m the best.
Howies Hottie goes in the 6.40 Kempton this evening in the shape of Faster Company from Stan Moores yard and it looks an eye-catching jockey booking with George Baker on top.
The gelding lost its way last season after an excellent debut behind a horse rated just under a 100 and then did not progress. He has dropped a long way in the weights however I did think he ran with a lot more zest last time which makes me think he could be primed for a big run.
One Pekan trainer R.Varian – Consistent type who looks ready to win especially when they put a good claimer up.
Thirtypointstothree trainer Nikki Evans – The horse is running off a basement mark and although still a maiden I’m sure connections can find the right race.
Francos Secret trainer P.Hedger – Hold up performer who is just starting to edge down the handicap to a winnable mark.
Pool House trainer M.Murphy – Has really gone down the ratings but still has ability to win races. He runs in the opener at Lingfield today which is competitive especially with a good favourite to beat but win lose or draw one to follow.
Melodic Rendezvous trainer J.Scott – Continues to run well in condition races and can pick up a handicap on this slower ground.
Back next Wednesday be lucky.
