I sent one blog message earlier ! Think its not gone through as yet.

Its difficult today with lots of ground changed/changing with rain.  Pouring here in Guernsey at the moment.

Al Hajar 2.15 Newmarket, currently around 5/6 is racing for the first time, but he has been backed as though defeat is out of the question.  I did back this horse last night at odds against, expecting he can win today, before progressing to better races.  It is important to win your maiden with this type of colt, as he was an expensive purchase as a yearling, at over £200,000 !

Although one horse in this race cost over £400,000 (Slipstream) so it will be interesting to see how he goes as well.

The big race of the day at Ascot at 3.35 looks to be a cracker, Ulysses looks a bit of value around 7/1 (each way), I will watch a bit of racing and see the information/times from previous races,  before having a possible investment on him.

Enable looked very good when winning two Group 1’s recently, she gets a stone in weight from a lot of decent older horses, her jockey Dettori will be riding at his minimum weight on her.

She looks a big danger, if she handles the ground, although 5/4 is narrow, in such a high quality event, with a number of decent horses to beat.
