You see why I go on about Aiden o’brien ! – George wins aat 5/1, Poet at 9/4 and the other 2nd and in heavy ground! – this augurs well for the O’Brien/Murtagh combination this Irish Flat season.
3 into 1’s both won and the big priced top weight Nicky Tam was unplaced
Footy wise ,Chelsea won 1-0 for anyone who went for the correct score dutch – overs came in the Real match

210 lingfield
BETTING FORECAST: 2/1 Samuel Charles, 5/2 Climate, 6/1 Victor Trumper, 10/1 Golden Spectrum, Hansomelle, 12/1 Personify, 16/1 Bandits Pistol, 20/1 Cavallo Di Ferro, 25/1 Feelin Irie, 33/1 Valart, 50/1 Cumae

SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: Not many of these come here in any sort of form and despite their penalties, Climate and SAMUEL CHARLES look the pair to concentrate on. Marginal preference is for the latter, who is always a force to be reckoned with in plating compan

With Climate out, can we assume Samuel CHarles has got rid of his main rival? NOTE – this is a poor class of race!


Easy to back but shaped with plenty of promise on debut and confirmed that impression when facile winner over C&D last time; mark of 80 may not do her justice and both surprising and disappointing if there isn´t much more to come; stable going well and looks the one to beat.

Worth support albei at odds on – looks assured of a good run if Spotlight’s confidence is to be taken onboard


BETTING FORECAST: 4/5 Copperbottomed, 4/1 One Called Alice, 5/1 Our Sunnie, 10/1 Her Name Is Rio, Indecision

SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: Four of these meet on about the same terms as would have been the case in a handicap, the exception being Indecision, who has a bit to find. One Called Alice is a player if getting one of her better starts and able to hold a position down in trip but COPPERBOTTOMED is clearly the one to beat

“clearly the one to beat” – trigger words – again poor price but worthy of support

SOft ground at WIncanton

Again a poor day and we just have to remain patient while waitning for better opportunities

3into 1
2 surprising winners yesterday given the ground

300 Southwell – Copperbottomed

Nantes look backable at 2/1 against Troyes who got hammered by Le HAvre recently – NAntes last away game was a draw only because of a last minute equaliser
