Midweek Flat Fancies. (07/06/2018)

Thursday 7th June 2018

A whole host of Flat Racing to get stuck into this Thursday which is of course a positive for us Flat Racing fanatics. It’s more of a challenge trying to find which races your going to choose from however never mind which horse, with the mass of meetings we’ve got in this country at the moment.

However I best not start on that as you’ll be here all day reading about me moaning about this country’s ridiculous over the top schedule of meetings, and i’m sure there is people out there that really enjoy two runner National Hunt fields at Bangor where the favourite is 2/9. Anyway, here are a few fancies on the level this afternoon….


3.30 – Wenley (7/1) (E/W) (Jockey: D Tudhope – Trainer: R Bastiman)

(Mediocre effort on first start for this yard, was well supported that day too, eased in Grade though here and could well build on that run and go closer in a fairly weak contest.)


4.30 – Mystic Flight (6/4) (Jockey: J Mitchell – Trainer: R Varian)

(Won very nicely the last day at Newbury, double penalty here but would still be very hard to beat if turning up in the same form.)



3.40 – Gurkha Friend (15/8) (Jockey: S De Sousa – Trainer: K McLintock)

(Ran in lots of hot handicaps over all types of distance, won here over a mile and a furlong the last day  and should make a bold bid if handling the eight pound rise. SDS on board.)



2.50 – Argentello (7/2) (Jockey: L Dettori – Trainer: J H M Gosden)

(Been an expensive one to follow so far, however hasn’t been too far away and if handling these conditions could well finally get his nose in front here.)



5.55 – Zalpa (13/2) (E/W) (Jockey: W Buick – Trainer: C Appleby)

(Expensive buy for top connections but was turned over on debut at odds on, his price that day suggested a lot better is thought of and he could put a well improved effort in here.)


6.25 – Ghostwatch – (7/4) (Jockey: W Buick – Trainer: C Appleby)

(Got caught wide at Chester coming into the straight and subsequently finished third, likely more to come now stepped up in trip again.)


NAP: Ghostwatch – 6.25 Sandown
NB: Mystic Flight – 4.30 Haydock
