The Major cannot sleep – Tonight I ran 16 miles in preparation for the Berlin marathon in three and a bit weeks.
Three hours have passed since the run but I am still unable to get a chemical balance in my body that will allow rest. If you think this effort deserves some reward then please (in a Paralympic year too) consider a donation to the my justgiving account for the marvellous Whizz Kidz charity who provide mobility equipment for severely disabled children.
So a flash post on some thoughts from tomorrows cards.
Firstly a nice Clonmel mixed card – These mixed flat and jumps cards are popular in Ireland and I think we should have more of them in the UK too.
Salisbury Thursday Tips
In the feature listed race (3.15) I cannot get away from the well backed horse, El Manati. This horse set a record at Leicester last time out when winning by a wide margin, the money has poured in for the horse who faces a much more tricky assignment here but the suggestion is the there is some class here in the daughter of Ilfraaj. The draw is important here with a bias on low numbers as they swing right handed into the long straight, my girl is in stall 3, what else do you need? 4/1 is available as I type with BetVictor so have a slice.
How about a Tip for the States?
In the Futurity (Grade 1) being run in the States, I would back a bit of course experience even in the face of fancied debutantes from top yards such as Baffert. Know More seems obvious at 5/2 but I am happy to be obvious with this horse whose Sires side comes out of Tales of the Cat and the Dams sire is through the Seattle Slew line… Lovely.
Good luck folks…..
