Weaver's on fire
Our trading room is terrified...
We had some Friday night last week and to be honest I was expecting the P45 in the post. But Paddy’s said fair play and has let me off!
Hopefully lightening can strike twice and with a couple of fantastic days coming up next week with the Oaks and the Derby down for decision – let’s try to get a few quid to cover the expenses if you’re planning a trip to Epsom.
Busy Street, Pontefract, 7pm
Kieren Fallon gets the leg up at one of his old happy, hunting grounds. This lightly-raced improver who was unlucky not to win at Beverly two runs back. With The Lock Master in the field to make the pace, Fallon can produce him late and swoop on the line.
Orewa, Pontefract, 7.30pm
Brian Ellison’s runner looks the type to appreciate the trip and a stamina test after a couple of wins at Beverly over 5f. He’s hit the line strong both times. Yalta made all at Goodwood but is very much a work in progress. He’s tall and leggy and he might just run out of puff on the final climb to the jam stick.
Olivia Fallow, Musselburgh, 7.40pm
This former three-time winner put up a good performance on her return at Redcar after a nine-month. She will be much sharper tonight, is drawn to get the stands rail and after a shocking start for Paul Midgley’s yard with its early runners, the signs are good that they are just about to fire again.
Kilim, Pontefract, 8.30pm
The three-year-old comes from a family that trainer Luca Cumani knows exceptionally well. They are all late maturing types who stay well. She’s only rated 64 and it will be a massive shock if she doesn’t at least reach 80+ as the year goes on. Upped in trip again after a fair run over a mile at Nottingham, this stiffer test will be bang up her street.
Rasaman, Musselburgh, 8.40pm
Jim Goldie’s runner loves it here and the quick ground looks to of come right for him. He’s a 12-year-old but he’s down to a mark of 70 and that’s too tempting to pass up. Joe Doyle’s claim takes off another 3lb and with a good draw in four, it looks perfect for the old fella.
Curzon Line, Musselburgh, 9.10pm
Bolted up in an apprentice contest at Ripon but escapes a penalty here and looks thrown in. This could be a gimme as he was rated 118 in his pomp and has slid down to a mark of 60 for his latest success.
