Quick review of my last post. I did bet each way on the Karl Burke runner Poppy Carrew at Newmarket who was pretty keen and actually finished stone last, very disappointing to be honest. As for my other tracker Royal Dress, as per usual Pat Dobbs got into all kinds of trouble and flew late on, I’m pretty sure Royal Dress would have been challenging the winner at least, definitely keep an eye out for Royal Dress I’m not talking out of my pocket here either as I didn’t bet on Royal Dress but Dobbs is one jockey who frustrates me at times.
I’ve been waiting forever for Pure Dignity to run as I knew the Roger Varian filly was a good one. I mean the price tag alone was a give away plus nice pedigree and well entered last season. I don’t normally bet win but I did on my 3yo to follow. The race started and Pure Dignity started well enough for her debut, the odds on favourite Light Of Peace led and looked to have it in the bag a furlong to go, fuck I thought money down the drain but Pure Dignity had other ideas as jockey David Egan got a great tune out of her and got up to win by a cosy length, get in you beauty! I’m looking forward to seeing where she goes next and how good she is.
Silencer should be winning soon after finishing second and odds on shot Clearpoint won easily enough for the Fahey stable.
Few trackers over the next few days.
Thirsk 13.50 29th June
I’ve actually got in early with this £28,000 yearling. Jim’s Cracker makes his second appearance after what I thought was a satisfactory debut at Doncaster 67 days ago, supported into 100/30 that day Jim’s Cracker was away alright but got a bit outpaced at times until staying on steadily without challenging the leaders. The winner came fourth in the Norfolk and the third has won since. Personally anything over 9/2 is a negative for Jim’s Cracker winning. I’ve actually took 11/2 each way but been well supported since that.
Craven is an odds on tracker in the first leg at Thirsk. No bet at the price.
I did have a couple of Irish trackers come through at Tipperary in the 18.10 called Vernet for Joseph O’Brien, who actually ran a decent race at Navan at the end of May. An amateur on board plus 12/1 at the minute has slightly put me off, we will see and the Aidan O’Brien favourite Hans Anderson is my other and could be very good.
Another Irish tracker on Thursday called All Things Nice and again trained by Joseph O’Brien. You would think the Sioux Nation filly would have a chance here.
Thanks for reading and good luck.
