Racking up top rated winners at Dundalk

Someone forgot to read the script yesterday and I think it might have been me. With only three races of interest starting with the 6:20. With Secret Glance (opened 5-2) having poached a 5 length lead and Hills And Dales (opened 7-2) travelling strongly and likely to be the horse most likely to offer a challenge, a 1st and 2nd looked on the cards. Enter Royal Silk. Flying in the final furlong from back to front at 33-1 under Twiston-Davies to spoil the party.

With Star Of The Stage (8-1) only able to finish 3rd in the 6:50 and the withdraw of Grey Mirage in the 7:20 the day rested on Classic Mission (13-2) and McBirney (opened 4-1). The latter being backed like defeat was out of the question.

If the finishing time of the Charlie Hall Chase made us question the actual distance the race was run over. The last race at Kempton Park left me questioning whether they had run too far. The race was run in such a pedestrian pace in the opening stages, you would be forgiven for thinking that the field were cantering to the start. The end result being a battle up the straight between Cataria Girl and our selection Classic Mission with the former holding sway.

While we were hitting the bar continuously at Kempton Park, we were racking up top rated winners at Dundalk with Wychwood Warrior (3-1), Sirikoi (1-2), Whaileyy (9-4) and Minot Street (4-1) all scoring.

We have a busy two days ahead with 2 meetings today and 3 on Friday and although we are looking at what I perceive to be several good, nicely priced opportunities at Southwell today, I am little concerned over how the course will run with the change in the weather.
