English: Wait for me ! A hurdle race at Huntin...

We enjoyed a  pretty successful day yesterday with both of our selections hitting the board.Bell Flower Boy, the first of the duo ran away from his rivals for an emphatic victory at odds of 9/2.Lovely odds indeed.Suitably fortified with our takings from that race ,we thought it prudent to reach for the handbrakes and so we went each way on selection no 2 Ocky De Neulliac who finished a very fortunate third ,  just managing to save our investment in him.We lost the win leg of our double but the place portion brought in a tidy profit.So all in all, from our point  of view,it was a good day at the office.We do not however,for one minute, intend to rest on our laurels.No ,not at all.We are going to continue to fight the battle day in day out and it’s no different today .Certainly we are in no hurry to board a luxury Cruise liner for an Italian cruise, though I dare say the bookies might ‘harbor’ such wishes on our behalf.Our desire is to have them on bended knees ,much as Australia is  presently doing to the Indian Cricket Team.Well so much for the long winded speech[we’re not in the Commons are we?].Let’s  therefore ,turn our attention to the serious stuff and today’s selections.The first of these runs in the 1.30 at Fontwell and he is the No8 horse ,the difficult to pronounce  QUOUSKO DE L”ISOP.The first thing that strikes me about this one is his ability to handle  the  expected Heavy ground conditions.He was impressive in landing a bumper in similar conditions so ,no problem in that department.He has had two outings over hurdles the first of which saw him virtually tailed off after a couple of bad mistakes.He improved in his  last start to finish third  and seems to be understanding  what is required of him.This is not a tough field to over come and with normal improvement this horse is taken to land the prize. No1,.SPIRIT D”ARMOUR in the 1.40 at Huntingdon is our next selection and, in his last start, he finished 3rd to the more than useful Chesil Beach Boy after making much of the running  over  a 2fur shorter trip.We expect this one to show further improvement and if he does ,that should see him winning this race.The 2.10 at Huntingdon is where we go next and our selection here is No3, Charlie Longsdon’s SPANISH CRUISE [not to be confused with ‘Italian Cruise’  ha ha].This one is due for a win after two very good efforts and we are confident of him going one better today.The Master of Seven Barrows , the great Nicky Henderson has one entered here  and who is the likely race  favorite. However, we feel that while that one does have an obvious chance of  following up ,[won on Sunday],our selection will prevail over him and gain a much deserved victory.Our final selection runs in the 3.10 at Huntingdon and in this race we are looking no further than the No1 Horse,BENNY BE GOOD.This is a competitive race with a couple of  useful animals among the entrants.However Benny Be Good is a very very confident selection to land the spoils in this race  and so ,while we respect those in opposition to him today our money will most definitely be riding on him.Best of luck and please share/retweet.
