The horse racing week ahead here in the UK and Hong Kong

Bit of a nightmare Tingle Creek meeting for me having been unable to secure any tickets I spent the afternoon in front of the google box backing 2nd's! Well, I had one winner but it was like a plaster over a gaping wound! Upwards and upwards and into this week. 
Following the disappointment of Altior not running at Sandown it appears we will see him for the first time this season at Kempton on December 27th for the Desert Orchid Chase. A little sooner than that Goshen is due to return to the track this coming weekend. Gary Moore appears in bullish mood telling journalists that Goshen is the best horse he has trained and is the one they all have to beat in Saturday's Grade 2 Unibet International Hurdle at Cheltenham.  "If he runs you can expect a big run, they'll have him to beat. It'll tell us everything, if he can't win on Saturday he shouldn't be going for a Champion Hurdle and god knows what we'll do with him. I want it to be the easiest race possible, I'd hate for him to have a hard race on his first run back but it depends what he has to take on. We're really looking forward to it, he's been very good the last few weeks and schooled earlier in the week and jumped good. He had a little school this morning and was very quick and accurate, I couldn't be happier with him." 
Here in the UK the week is all about the big meetings at Cheltenham and Doncaster at the weekend and I will deal with them in due course if there are any fancies so do check back. I will also of course be getting involved in the big races at Sha Tin for the Hong Kong International meeting. We have the  Longines Hong Kong Vase,  Longines Hong Kong Sprint,  Longines Hong Kong Mile and of course the Longines Hong Kong Cup to look forward to; no lay-in mind you as it is the early hours of Sunday morning. 
Be lucky
