Sometimes I wonder about the powers that be in racing as we have just two race meetings this afternoon, one from Redcar in North Yorkshire and one from Kelso in Roxburghshire Scotland – I have no problem with either course but do wonder why there is no racing anywhere further south for the most populated part of the Country to visit, that simply does not make economic sense?
Today I will go against the rules and only go for the one horse – I see little point in making it up as we go along and the fact is, it is not an easy day to look for sure fire winners at any price.
With the ground possibly a lot too quick for The Thirsty Bricky on all known form ahead of the seventeen furlong handicap chase from Kelso due off at 3,30pm there has been plenty of cash overnight for the Lucinda Russell trained Kai Broon, a relatively locally trained five year old who hopefully has his best years ahead of him. Already the winner of a couple of races over hurdles, including one here over course and distance (though without the fences of course), and on good to firm ground as well. He has only had the one run over fences (again course and distance, only with the jumps this time), when runner up to better fancied stablemate Degas Art on his first outing since the previous June, and with that run under his belt I expect him to strip a lot fitter here and make the most of the weight he receives from his probable market rival.
Sensible bet for Punters
2pts Win KAI BROON 3.30pm Kelso.
