(Opens to a third party website)
Just a brief one this week as I'm away on a family holiday until the weekend. Our kennel hasn't been in the best of form of late but hopefully we can start firing on all cylinders soon. We still have plenty to look forward to over the next couple of weeks starting tonight as we have a couple of pups (Vote Topper and Not So Classical) at Nottingham in the heats of the Nottingham Puppy Classic,. On Wednesday both Clondoty Alex and Swift Dartmoor will try and make the final of the Peterborough Derby though they face a tough semi final. On Thursday we didn't manage to get any through to the Ladbrokes Festival finals at Monmore but we hope to go back this week in the supporting races.
On Friday the Champion Stakes kicks off at Romford and Roswell Romanov, despite a rare defeat last Friday, should go off as ante post favourite and should still take all the beating as he tries to land the second leg of the Romford 575m triple crown.
On Saturday the Lowther Stakes semi finals see both Ribble Aon and Forrest Melanie in action but both will need a bit of luck to make the final.
Clondoty Alex took his heat of the Peterborough Derby on Wednesday and Swift Dartmoor qualified. Not the best of nights at Monmore with all three of our runners eliminated from their competitions in the Ladbrokes Festival.
On Friday at Romford rare defeats for both Roswell Romanov and Rubys Razzle though there was a good win for Cotton Pants
in the Friday Night 500 Standard in a fast 23.72 though the track was lightning quick.
Ribble Aon and Forest Melanie qualified in their heats of the Lowther Stakes at a Towcester on Saturday night and we only had one winner at Henlow on Sunday where Ninja Storm won a 550m Maiden open.
From our seven runners in the Graded Derby Swift Kaylee was our only winner in the heats scoring well in 29.04 while our only other qualifier was Saffrons Honey. Swift Dante scored an overdue victory in the Owners Bonus Series heats in a good 41.83 calc. Not a great day Saturday with no winners in the am and pm cards.
PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK
OPEN - COTTON PANTS
GRADED - SWIFT DANTE
WHAT'S ON NEXT WEEK
As said above we will be at Nottingham tonight and Peterborough on Wednesday. On Thursday we are at Monmore and the Champion Stakes kicks off at Romford on Friday and the Lowther Stakes continues at Towcester on Saturday.
WEBSITE RECOMMENDED BETS
Our bets are a bit like our kennel at the moment and that's slightly out of form, however maybe Roswell Romanov can start a reasonable ante post price in the Champion Stakes and I'm hoping Rubys Razzle can come back to form and could be a bit of each way value.
ROSWELL ROMANOV - 5 pts win ante post - Coral Champion Stakes - Romford - starts Friday
RUBYS RAZZLE - 2 pts ew ante post - Coral Champion Stakes - Romford - starts Friday
ADVISED LAST WEEK
RUBYS RASCAL - 5 pts win ante post 5/1 - Ladbrokes Summer Stayers - Monmore - Thursday - lost
PARKERS DYNAMITE - 1.5 pts ew ante post 33/1 - Peterborough Derby - Wednesday - lost
