Email

Sunday, May 24

HIGHLAND SWEETLUCK (NW1/3-4YOFM) crushed by open lengths in last and should be hard to beat in next.

TUSCANELLIE (NW1/3-4YOFM) showed no mercy with wire to window romp in last as the prohibitive favorite.

ALLIES DRAGON (CLM11000)  was uncovered a long way grinding up and was second best to short-priced favorite in most recent effort.

BLUE MUSE (NW2/3-4YOFM) charged home from second over to win going away in last outing and should be hard to deny in next race or two.

Tuesday, May 26

HA TAYLOR (NW1/3-4YO) tucked the pocket, took a shuffle, rallied, tucked the pocket again in the final turn and proved second best.

K RYAN BLUECHIP (NW1/3-4YO) was parked wide to the lead, set a good clip and put up a super sharp number winning as he pleased.

FIE FY FO (NW3/3-4YOFM) tried her best down the road but was a game second as the odds-on favorite revved up her motor for the stretch finish.

AMERICAN ALIVE (NW3/3-4YOFM) left, tucked, pulled to the half, chased the top one to the lane, found the accelerator and left no doubt why she was odds-on.

Wednesday, May 27

FLASHBACK (NW4500) went to the lead, met pressure from the uncovered favorite, held staunchly putting away the challenge but could not stall the fresh pocket-sitting winner.

INTERNAL CHECK (CLMHCP10/12500M) ralllied much too late at nearly 100-1 to get 3rd but has to earn a look in next race or two.

SUDOKU (NW5/3-4YOFM) brushed and crushed as the prohibitive favorite in last and seemed to have plenty left for next adventure.

DREAM DEFENCE N (CLMHCP10/12500) was parked the mile in last and proved dead game to the wire. Can take another one very soon. 

Saturday, May 30

R CAAN (NW11500) was used to the lead, yielded, got shuffled back in the final turn, tried to rally between horses, seemed more than willing but lacked the necessary room to have a strong move.

SPUNKY MONKEY (CLMHCP125/15000) set the pace under long pressure from two separate foes and fell victim to the late rally of the favorite.

RUDE BOY (CLM25000) was out a long way in last, battled uncovered to final turn before giving way.

HRUBYS N LUCK (CLLM10000) rallied a long way to get the lead, went as far as he could at 15-1 and should find his own field sooner that later.

Sunday, May 31

DASHPEDIA (CLM7500) got caught behind a quitting horse, rallied strongly to just miss but had lost his best chance.

CRAZY BEAUTIFUL (NW1/3-4YOFM) tucked early, came uncovered and put in a decent effort only to get nailed on the wire by the second over closer.

UP UP AND OUT (NW3200) seemed to dislike the going in last. Beaten favorite put in a dull effort and gets a one-time pass.

WICLET HANOVER (NW2/3-4YOFM) tucked early, pulled to the half, launched a determined uncovered bid, battled the pacesetter into submission by head stretch but was nailed by tripped out second over horse.

KISS UP (CLM11000) put in a good uncovered bid chasing the favorite, refused to go away in the lane and earns a look in next race or two.
