Today’s Ratings from Fakenham and Taunton 01/11/17

One thing that has always been a “consistent” is that the Ratings will always find diamonds in the dirt and yesterday they definitely did so again.

It was also the clearest sign yet that things are shaping up and that given a fair crack of this regarding the weather, we’ll do just fine this winter.

The figures yesterday performed superbly well with two top rated winners @ 12/1 and 6/1, another coming home in second place and three of the six winners of those races located I my top three rated horses.

If they can perform like that on such a day, they should certainly do ok when the racing is higher quality.

REVIEW: Four of the first five past the post in my top four rated and the first five in my top six. Ok, only eight went to post but I was still pleased with this, especially having that winner in my top three.

SHADOW BLUE….-40
CHICA RAPIDA….-40
PEAK STORM….-40
SPILLERS DREAM….-40

REVIEW: The figures here were all over the place and it being a Class 5, I’m not overly shocked by that. The top rated still “performed” though and no complaints.

CHEPSTOW 2-50 – CLASS 4 – HURDLE

* – CULTURE DE SIVOLA….-14 – WON 6/1
H – WYLDE MAGIC….-23 – 3RD
ROYALE DJANGO….-29

FILATORE….-36
SAHARA HAZE….-40
MONDELLO….-40
T – GRAN MAESTRO….-40

REVIEW: First three home in my top four rated. A nice top rated winner and considering nothing came close to a + figure, mildly surprised but pleasantly so, too.

CHEPSTOW 3-55 – CLASS 5 – HURDLE

LET’S TANGO….+11
CRY FURY….+2 – 6TH
STEEL EXPRESS….-7
* – LITTLE JIMMY….-30
ALBERTO’S DREAM….-33

MINELLA VOUCHER….-40
BEALLANDENDALL….-40 – 5TH
GRAMS AND OUNCES….-40 – 3RD
DRAGOON GUARD….-40
WHISKEY JOHN….-40

REVIEW: That’s how I expect a Class 5 to look after a race. Winner and placed horses all over the place, a shock result and 52 lengths between 1st and 6th home, in an 18 runner race.

Jack Barber found out yesterday that no matter how good your Class 5 horse can be one day, he’ll run like a drain next time up.

The winner had raced five times before yesterday and been beaten a total of 185 lengths….that’s the equivalent of being beaten a “distance” every time it had raced previously. It had raced three times at Chepstow in those five races and finished a 62 length 9th of 10, a 29 length 5th of seven and a 47 length 7th of eight.

Yesterday it turned into a swan and beat a 1/2 favourite that had previously gone in by 30 lengths.

Go figure!
