MINELLACELEBRATION scored for us yesterday at a decent price of 5/2. Let’s hope that’s a sign of things to come.
Thursday the 3rd of December sees action at Leicester, wincanton,Market rasen and Kempton in England and theirs one meeting in Ireland at Clonmel. A couple of horses take my fancy this afternoon.
The first one I like is ARQUIBUISER (nap) 3.20 at Leicester. This horse hails from the Miss Baker yard which have a relatively small stable but this horse was an emphatic winner last time out at Fontwell, winning in the end by a margin of 31 lengths having led from start to finish. Their seems to be no competition for the lead here again today and provided he takes these along at a clip he should burn them off with ground conditions in his favour. Slight worry would be the drop back in trip. James banks takes the ride and he should prove very difficult to beat.
The other horse I like is CAOLANEOIN (nb) e/w 3.00 at Clonmel. Hails from the Shane Nolan stable this horse is out of kings theatre which appreciates underfoot conditions which will be in his favour today. This horse was a dissapointing 7th of 8 runners on his comeback run last time out at Naas just under a month ago. However having watched the race again I think he was given an easy time of it by the jockey and he might well have needed the run. I’m expecting a much improved run today as their seems to be a bit of pace on this 9 runner contest which will suit my selection who will be held up for a late run. Shane shortell takes a valuable 5 pounds off his back and I’m expecting him to be there or thereabouts.
Good luck everyone.
