3rd October

Another day of big sales races. Great events to watch and always worth a quid or two if you see a speculative price on offer. Couple of races of interest but the prices are on the short side which tempers my enthusiasm.

2:10 Redcar
I fancy the chances of Tesslam but with so many non-runners the price has made this by all accounts a watching race. Ideally, I would be looking for an each way price, but that would seem very unlikely. Jarvis and Robinson are always a good combination and this drop in class should suit this chestnut colt by Singspiel.

6:45 Wolverhampton
Never The Waiter, although not well drawn, must take some beating over this 6f. A Group-entered two-year-old and second string when running well on debut, has all the hallmarks of a Meehan improver. Once again, I was hoping for an each way price, and I note that a few got on at bigger odds with Betfair early, but the price is going by the moment and it wouldn't surprise me if this went off quite a short-priced favourite. A big chance today without a doubt.

A watching day.
