It has been a quiet week for me thus far, just the one bet in fact which was a short-priced winner, I am not someone who bets for the sake of having a bet.
I am getting involved at Newbury on Friday, Doncaster has sadly lost another meeting to the weather, it has been wetter than an Otter's pocket up there!
1.50 2m4f Get Your Ladbrokes £1 Free Bet Today Handicap Chase. Kalashnikov is a horse I have talked of a lot, was my punt in the Arkle back in March. Second in the G.2 Virgin Bet Monet's Garden Old Roan Limited Handicap Chase last month I think he will have too much for this field even having to give them all weight. I have a bot if the 3-1.
Double entered at the meeting Champ has his second race over the bigger obstacles in the 2.25 at Newbury the Grade Two 2m4f Ladbrokes "Where The Nation Plays" Novices' Chase. He got the job down nicely enough on Chase debut here earlier this month and is expected to take this. I have the 6-4 from earlier in the week as I thought he'd come for this rather than a race on Saturday.
