19th October

A number of races today but mostly nurseries which I rarely consider as betting opportunities.

2:00 Windsor
A very restricted auction race for colts and fillies. No doubt Bronze Beau will be making a sprint for the line and, as usual, get caught in the final furlong. Stubbs will get a win out of this colt, who in truth deserve to sneak a victory at some point. I will keep an eye on the betting for Fire Raiser, trained by Andrew Balding. It's not too encouraging to see this gelding raced in a claimer on debut but if fancied in the betting could well have each way chances. Mr Money Maker is quite short price for Dascombe on debut and that is often an indicator of a big run.

A watching day.
