For anyone who saw the fatal injury that Starchitect sustained yesterday when looking a sure winner two fences from home at Celtenham, it was really sad for all his connections. Awful shame for such a tough genuine horse to end his life like that, the horse must of taken a bad step or put his foot down a very soft patch of ground I think to sustain his injury.
Back to today, Carlisle has been abandoned, but racing goes ahead at Southwell and Chelmsford and also some good races today In Ireland.
Todays Free tip is as follows:
Horse: Article Fifty
Time: 1:30 Southwell
Current Odds: 6/4
This horse won his bumper at Uttoxeter on soft ground , he looked the type to do well at the jumping game that day. A winner of a point to point as well before his bumper win proves he can jump, and with Richard Johnson riding he will be well fancied to win. Tossapenny is what I think the main threat, he ran well at Chepstow in a bumper and looked the type to improve.
