After a number of days of frustration when my selections have been running well without winning Red Not Blue finally managed to deliver a winning selection, although it took Tony McCoy to be at his strongest to drive him out to fend of his two market rivals. One meeting tomorrow at Newton Abbot and there is one selection in the Conditional Jockey’s handicap hurdle.
P&L for 2012 -7.92
Newton Abbot 6.00 Quaddick Lake 1PT WIN @ 5/1 PP(2nd 2/1F)
Quaddick Lake makes a quick reappearance in this conditional Jockey’s handicap hurdle after a very strange ride last Thursday when he appeared to be held up too far off the pace and made an enormous amount of ground up from the home turn to only be beaten just over three lengths, without the jockey ever picking up his whip. Provided the race doesn’t come too soon for Quaddick Lake and Matt Griffiths( in my opinion one of the most improved conditionals this year) is able to lay up with the pace then a reproduction of his run at Fontwell on Thursday should see him go very close. Heavily backed, given every chance going on home turn, caught at the last, no excuses just a difficult horse to win with.
