Cheltenham drawing closer. A couple of each-way fancies for the Friday. With Mille Chief out of the Triumph have sided with Advisor. It has done nothing wrong and the stable expect plenty of improvement. Another stable fancy is The Betchworth Kid in the Albert Bartlett. An out and out stayer on the flat, he should relish this 3 mile trip. Let me know what you think.
Another Cheltenham pick for the friday in the Martin Pipe hurdle. Ashkazar, trained by Martin's son David. This time last year he was rated 156 he is now down to 137. He looked on his way back last time out and if anywhere near his best must go close.

Hamilton looks tricky..

Although we do like the Bryan Smart newcomer in the opener. Excellent Vision. He boasts a very nice pedigree and increased significantly in value. If supported today follow the money. In the 4.10 Milton Of Campsie won nicely last time out and a 6 pound penalty may not stop the follow up.

A modest day of racing..

But a couple stand out today at Yarmouth . Cojo in the opener can make a winning debut. Brian Meehan's well bred youngster is entered in the Cheveley Park stakes and hasn't been set too hard a task today. Pure Heir is my second choice in the 3.40. David Barron's three year old has shown promise in better races and could be primed for success. My colleague Ian Brindle also has a strong fancy today Barons Spy in the Haydock 3.30. He doesn't have much to find on official ratings and the trainer reckons this opposition isn't as strong as his recent opponents.

A bit hit and miss at present...

Plenty on my mind, so hard to study. However I have had a good look today and found a few at Goodwood to watch out for. Cansili Star in the 2.00 is the first choice. First time in a handicap and his maiden form has worked out very well. A mark of 80 seems very fair. Jessie James won with plenty of authority last time and can follow up this afternoon. Robby Bobby is a bold front runner and has been leading at the trip in mile and half contests, he could lead his rivals a merry dance today.

No joy on Saturday..

Today we start with a jumper, Captain Becket in the 4.30 at Fontwell. He saves his best for this track and is only 2 pound higher than when winnuing this race last season. In the opener at York William Morgan still looks on a fair mark, despite an 8 pound rise following an emphatic win last week.
