Sakhra Blu! Stitched up and Sewn Up

November started as October finished with selection Sewn Up (4-1) taking the 1:45 Dunstall Park opener. The margin of victory was slender but the drop back in trip after its LTO success over 7f gave confidents that it wouldn’t be lacking in the finish over 5f 216yds.

We had to shed some points before adding again with selection Twice Certain (2-1) and Luke Morris who was completing a double after an earlier win on Invincible Ridge in the 2:50. There was nothing flamboyant about Twice Certain’s win who simply ground down the opposition at what appeared to be an even pace throughout.

Having already seen a 50-1 winner in Avonmore Star in the 2:15, we witnessed a very tactically astute ride from Graham Gibbons on All Weather d├ębutante Pivotman at 28-1 making all and muddling the pace, taking the 4:25, with the best of our selections Coillte Cailin (8-1) holding on grimly for third spot.

Coillte Cailin was to prove a highlight of the last three races as we watched Cerutty win an uncompetitive and un-eventful 4:55 at the handsome odds of 2-7.

One of our two selections Elegant Ophelia (6-1) ran no race for us at all in the finale and was all but pulled up, while our second selection Sakhra (25-1) I feel is one to keep an eye on. While the winner Royal Trooper was able to enjoy an un-interrupted passage around the outside of the field, Sakhra faced a wall of horses. Once switched and given daylight, finished its race closing on the leaders. A race well worth watching over. Unfortunately the result remains the same with each watch! 4th at 25-1. Sakhra Blu

It has been some time since we enjoyed the delights of Southwell’s artificial surface but today we see the start of their winter offering. What a miserable looking card we have start us off and I am somewhat relieved we have only the one interest there today.


Kempton Park looks equally uninviting with only 6 races but at least, within those 6 races we have some competitive prices to attract us. 

Me, I have a funeral to attend this afternoon so hope when I return I have results that will lift the spirits.
