Jam tomorrow?

Jam tomorrow?

The weather has certainly had a big say this week. Since my last blog on Saturday there have been eleven scheduled meetings, of which six have been abandoned. The standard of the five remaining has not been particularly inspiring.

Today we are left with Market Rasen after Chepstow succumbed to waterlogging. The going at Rasen is a mixture of good to soft and soft. It will make a welcome change from the heavy ground that has dominated recently.

Two races quickly touch on. Firstly, the 1.50 where bottom weight Herons Heir makes his handicap debut. On what he has achieved so far, the general 7/4 on offer looks very short. I go 5/1 on my tissue.

The 2.55 looks a wide open affair. Sunny Legend looks to follow up his victory at Towcester two weeks ago. Current 8/1 offers a bit of value.

We have three meetings planned tomorrow. With Ascot and Haydock being the headliners. Un De Sceaux returns to Britain for the first time since his tremendous display in the Arkle. Over at Haydock good novice and champion hurdle trials plus the gruelling Peter Marsh Chase.

Let’s hope the weather is kind.
