Today’s Ratings and Advice 05/11/17

We only have four rated races today but I like them. Loving the racing at Carlisle and it’s just great jump racing they put on up there. Even the bad races are good.

We are now seeing the rain arriving, which I’m not unhappy about. What we will also see is horses now improving for having had their first run and the Ratings (hopefully), reflecting this. That’s the plan, anyway.

Once the Ratings are in your possession all I’m looking for then is a clear round of jumping, no unforced errors on the way round, nothing falling in front of one of mine, no serious changes of going, the horse fancying it on the day, a jockey not thinking he’s driving a Ferrari and holding one up so long in mud that all he gets is wheel spin when he asks his to go and win the race, and we’ll be ok.

Not a lot can go wrong then, can it!

Have a great day!

Kindest regards

Ron

OF INTEREST SELECTIONS

One of the horses I’m most looking forward to seeing over fences as a novice runs today, at Huntingdon.

WILLOUGHBY COURT beat NEON WOLF, now sadly lost to us, in last season’s Neptune and whilst only five go to post and he’s already long odds on, I’m hoping he proves every bit as good over the larger obstacles and gives us a Cheltenham clue.

Ben Pauling also sends a pair up to Carlisle and I might be wrong but, I think this might be his first runners there?

Anyway, Daryl Jacob has bothered his backside to get up there to ride two for him

KILDISTART
(Carlisle 12-55)
CADEAU GEORGE
(Carlisle 2-30)

The latter runs in a Rated race (see below) and comes out seventh best, wearing those T* icons, so obviously the only qualifier for this section is:

KILDISTART

Could be a good day for Mr Pauling.

The other horse I’m interested in is QASR (Carlisle 4-10)

He makes his Bumper debut for Keith Dalgleish today and the trainer is 2-2 with such runners at Carlisle.

They’d be the only two I’d punt from this section this afternoon.
