Couple of Unlucky Ones This Week

Couple of Unlucky Ones This Week

What a week of racing, light on runners but couple of close call finishes and think both horses were unlucky to come up against a couple! Birkie Boy kicked us off on Saturday at Kempton, the race looked pretty hot on paper and he ran his heart out to finish 2nd. Then last night looked like Reverberation had nicked one at Chelmsford, but was very unlucky to just get nabbed near the line also finishing 2nd. They both ran lovely races, no excuses just unlucky. Hopefully they can both pick up another race soon, two genuine little horses.

Great racing today at Newbury, Stan has been reminiscing this morning about this meeting; many years ago when he was himself a jump jockey!!! He won the big race at Newbury for Toby Balding, riding Neblin to success, backed from 66-1 in to 8-1 A GOOD DAY WAS HAD BY ALL AS THEY SAY AND WHAT A NIGHT!!! Could really celebrate in those days NO SUNDAY RACING BACK THEN!!!

Cheltenham is on a lot of tongues in Lambourn with whispers here and there. Stan will be on the panel for the Champion Tips AT EAST GARSTON FOR THEIR ANNUAL MEETING on Friday 8th March. If your in the area why not  pop down and join them, lots of drinks and lots of tips always a great bit of craic as they say! 

Stan's tip is: Brentford Hope E/W in the 3.15 at Newbury

The Secretary's tip is: Union Avenue in the 4.25 at Newbury
