Horse racing Tuesday 25th January 2022
Following a nice winner of Monday, I wanted to back Blue Trail on Tuesday but the colt was odds-on as soon as they chalked-up last night. I put up Blue Trail on debut earlier this month up at Newcastle when he was second. He has three entries this week but he will go in the MansionBet Proud Partners Of The AWC Novice Stakes over a mile at Southwell due off at 5.00. Stable Mate Stormy Ocean had an uncontested lead at Newcastle and never looked in danger whilst this guy was given what can only be described as an educational ride from Paul Mulrennan. Hidden away out the back he had to make his way through horses which he did nicely for a debutant to chase home more fancied stable mate; it was a good first effort if annoying for me as I had backed him. I mentioned in the post at the time it is a family full of winners and this one should join their ranks today if given a more positive ride but sadly at the overnight and early prices I can't back him.
