THIS WEEKS ALL WEATHER FIXTURES - 26th March KEMPTON PARK- 27th March WOLVERHAMPTON- 29th March WOLVERHAMPTON - 30th March LINGFIELD PARK, KEMPTON PARK & SOUTHWELL - 31st March WOLVERHAMPTON & CHELMSFORD CITY - 1ST aPRIL LINGFIELD PARK & WOLVERHAMPTON - 2nd April KEMPTON PARK -

Don't bury your head in the sand thinking that this isn't happening every day!

There was mixed emotions yesterday over the 5 horses that were laid out to land major betting coups, four with Barney Curley connections and a later single selection of Michael Squance. There are few among us that would decline the offer of involvement given the chance but you also have to be sympathetic to those that had diligently gone through the form of these races to unearth potential winners.

Taking a retrospective view of those races, you would be hard pressed to arrive at the subsequent outcome and if there is anything to be learnt from yesterday’s events it is simply that without figuring the connections intentions in to your equation you are likely to fall short.

Playing devil’s advocate, those that find it distasteful that trainers train their horses in races on the racecourse in preparation for a plan prize should think how ill-informed we would be if this wasn't the case. The horse laid out yesterday were trained and readied away from prying eyes and there was little in the form book that would recommend them.

The only signals to those outside of the circle for those horses with Barney Curly connections were the ever shortening odds with Eye Of The Tiger opening at 10-1 returning at Evens, Seven Summits opening at 6-1 returning at 9-4, Indus Valley opening at 20-1 and returning at 4-6, Low Key opening at 7-1 returning at 4-7.

Me, I feel indifferent to yesterday’s events and if you don’t think this isn't happening on a daily basis on a smaller scale, you are simply burying your head in the sand.


Good luck to you all involved at Southwell and Kempton Park today :)
