Chester was a gloomy wet and miserable place this week and you had to feel sorry for the course and all the North Wests beautiful young things who had turned up to party. Party they did but inside and on the track the ground was more like Haydock in November.
The Don watched in horror as Richard Kingscote rode Air Pilot from the middle of the track (not a very clever idea when you think about it) and foiled a monster gamble. Make no doubt on soft ground the Pilot is a group 2 horse and any losses are lent. By the look on connections faces Mr Kingscote will not be on to share the success.
Another flat season Sunday and the collective minds at the BHA planning department have decided you want to see Plumpton and Ludlow. This is becoming a joke it’s the Flat season if you want to stage Summer Jumping then at least don’t offer a 100 % diet of it. The Don is no huge fan of the All Weather but wouldn’t it be better to stage a high quality All Weather card on a Sunday than this dross. Sadly don’t bother emailing or mentioning your different opinion to those that run racing believe me they are not interested.
So we turn our interest to Ireland who seem to have no problem staging high quality Flat action and at 3.10 we need a win bet on Kissed By Angels. This is Coolmores best bred filly and she was weak as a two year old. She made a pleasing debut but has sparkled at home since and at 9/2 with Bet365 it’s worth a bet.
We’ve an exciting week ahead with the York Dante Festival starting on Wednesday so to celebrate what will be a cracking week here’s a link you can use to get all my Gambling Don tips for the next 7 days for just £1.00!
