When will this heat relent and give us some moisture in the ground it is not for many of our horses liking and though we have had a few runners this week the ground has just been a bit on the fast side for them. Unfortunately doesn't look like its going to change next week with even more high temperatures forecast.
One runner this weekend, Wonder Elmossman lines up today at Newmarket, he is in good form and hoping for a nice run from him, but looks to be a very competitive race on paper. Lots of really great racing today especially in Ireland where the two year old race looks to be a proper one.
Stan's tip is: Arecibo in the 2.10 at Ascot
The Secretary's tip is: Basil Martini in the 2.05 at the Curragh E/W
