    Kev - Well done with Darkanna and unlucky with Lord Glitter

    It's the Cesarewitch next weekend and I've had two ante post plays.

    I backed Legostovegas on the exchanges (ave odds 70) it was crossing the finish line over hurdles lto. Hopefully WPM sends him across.

    My main bet is Withhold (25/1 and 16/1). He has only ran once this season over 1m 4f when finishing third behind Daphne and Weekender (who passed the post first yesterday in a listed race, subsequently demoted to 2nd). He needs further than 1m 4f though and is really well handicapped on his beating of London Prize over 2m at Haydock last season. Interestingly (to me anyway), Tony Bloom bought him and I have a feeling they have had this race in mind for a while. He has been very well backed in the last 24 hours and with a rating of 87, he could be absolutely thrown in.

    Horrow show apart from that. Two really poor weekends for me in a row. Luckily I get 80 pts from SDS on the 21st October to recover the flat season for me.

    Thanks for that on Withhold. You can see why it'll likely continue to get shorter! I will have a little each way now. I have also backed Time To Study at 14s a few weeks ago, which I see is still available. Having a week/weekend off though .... one last blast on Champions day and then it is time to get serious on here

    Apologies if I have posted this in the wrong place.

    Limericks 2.15 wonder of the world. I took the early 14s however now top price 12/1.
    The fav has looked impressive and he's beaten trees on the bridle he is rubys choice so you ha e to respect That, I like the form of robin des foret it has a solid look to it and the horse which fabulous saga beat by 20 lengths admittedly on the bridle was further behind robin des foret however last time out wonder of the world was coming with a winning challenge when falling at the last and I am of the opinion in he would ha e gone on by 2 lengths. Robin des foret is 7/2 for this race and wonder of the world now 12/1. Although only 7 runners that represents a bit of ew value for myself. The display was no fluke with the Barry o connel owned horse finishing a close 2nd in his pro and winning his next race over hurdles nicely previous to his fall

    Turbojet. General 3/1 imo his novice form of level weights been bumping into some nice no idea last season and finishing within a few lengths. Each effort very consistent, be won an easier race last time nicely and if expect him to have the measure of these. At 3/1 it sounds strange but I make him a big ew bet at 1/4 the odds. Barring a fall would look certain to be in the frame (over 70% of money back) and I fancy his chances of winning this race today.

    4.35 Galway. Minella till dawn 16/1 sportsbook.

    1st start in a novice chase but I really liked him over hurdles, his run when falling at the last when challenging alboum photo and his previous beating of the same horse reads very well in relation to the oppositions hurdle form. He was only a couple of lengths behind moulin a very good horse , when finshing infront of run for dave whos also a good consistent horse.
    He's the best of these over hurdles and despite the jockey bookings saying differently
    If he takes to fences I think he has a cracking ew chance, and will take all the beating.

    I can deffinately excuse his last run with the following quote

    Minella Till Dawn, pulled up after two out in the 4.20 @punchestownrace was found to be lame post-race
