One For This Evening

Two meetings today at  Perth and an evening meeting at  Market Rasen and there is one selection in the novice chase this evening

P&L for 2012 -7.42 

Market Rasen 6.40 Aneyeforaneye   1PT WIN @ 9/4 B365 (2nd 11/4)
Aneyeforaneye is a fairly useful mare in her grade and showed an improved level of form when winning on her novice chasing debut at Uttoxeter recently beating good yardstick in the 128+ rated Geneva Geyser. Having watched the race back again a couple of times she actual won by a very easy neck with the jockey only resorting to the whip once on the run in.  If she turns up in the same vain of form this evening I think she should be able to defy her 6lb penalty.
Failed by a length to peg back heavily gambled on favourite after being hampered when race turned into a sprint from 3 out.

National Hunt Racing Returns

National Hunt racing returns tomorrow with two evening  meetings at Fontwell and Stratford. There is little that appeals on the Stratford card however there is one selection at Fontwell.
P&L for 2012 -6.42

Fontwell  7.00 Quaddick Lake  1PT WIN @ 5/1 B365  (3rd 7/2F) 
Quaddick Lake returned to action at Worcester about a month ago after a period point to pointing and won very comfortably. He is up 10lbs tomorrow, but is clearly in good heart and has shown a higher level of ability than this when trained by the Pipe team. The Jeremy Scott team were in good form before the break and I can see Quaddick Lake defying his penalty.
Given a very strange ride by Nick Scholfield as never appeared to be put in the race at any stage but stayed on really well up the home straight to finish a never dangerous 3rd beaten only just over 3 lengths.
