Grey skies above me as we go into York day 2, the Gambling Don could be seen by the paddock with smoke coming out of his ears re the ride Joseph O’Brian gave Jamaica yesterday. I don’t think TGD will be exchanging Xmas cards with young Joseph this year!! In fairness it was yet another big race howler.
Australia won a poor renewal of the Juddmonte but did it in style and looked a million Dollars beforehand. For once TGD and the Artful dodger Andy Bell were in agreement both saying it looks like the perfect racehorse and will be some stallion. It would be good to see him tested and personally I would love to see him drop back to a mile and have a crack at Kingman. Even the Tartan Tipster Jimmy Welsh would pay to see that and he is so mean when he bakes he chops currants in half, what a notorious tightwad. He went for dinner at the Waterfront with another meanie called the Proffessor last night and they both sat there for so long at the end the Waiter paid.
Today one of the bets of the week runs in the 2.30 Cursory Glance and at 11/4 with Betvictor he must not be missed. This is a tough race, it should be for the money but Cursory Glance is a potential superstar and has been leaving work watchers drooling like Eddie the Stat when someone buys him a half. Roger Varian feels this could be the best he has ever had and I’m told and we should take the hint !
Have a great day it doesn’t get any better than this week!
Back next Thursday.
