Stephen Arnold and the quivering jelly fish + 3 for today!

No sooner had I typed the words ‘no skulduggery as witnessed yesterday’ in my post, Wednesday’s early breaking news centred on Stephen Arnold and 12 Ann Stokell runners across the two cards at Lingfield Park and Kempton Park. A handful of the 12 appearing to set up the pace for the target horses. You could sense Stephen Arnold’s frustration when interviewed on ATR with the most poignant comment brushed aside by Matt Chapman in the hope to sensationalise what appeared to be unprecedented market support for several of the Stokell trained horse. Owner Stephen Arnold had attempted to place a £2 Lucky 63 with several bookmakers resulting in betting being suspended on 7 races.

The suggestion was that punters had latched on to a Stephen Arnold tweet after placing his bet and jumped on the bandwagon causing prices to collapse. As only Bet365 were prepared to take Stephen Arnolds bet it gives you some insight in to the gutless, risk averse, quivering jelly fish we have today in the bookmaking fraternity.

After yesterday’s excellent turn out it is somewhat disappointing to see a return to the depleted field sizes for today and Friday, which is marginally better. The question before the BHA at present is whether the horse population can support Great Leighs (Chelmsford City), potentially Catterick and Newcastle providing more All Weather racing. As much as I relish the idea of all 3 recent field sizes would suggest that this is likely to be unsustainable.

On the home front, yesterday’s three ‘Profile’ horses provided some bumps and bruises and tarnished a record of every selection being in the first three home with only Sound Advice filling the frame. The Hugh Taylor v The Actuary selections suffered the same indignity as we mirrored each other’s picks. We go again today with another three today that unfortunately all look likely to be shorter than 5-1.

Have a great days racing ;)
