Moon Racer

November 24th

A fair old chunk has been uploaded since 7.00 p.m. last night starting with 8000+ words in Week 2 of the Cheltenham Festival Ante-Post Service where I advised my first bet of the meeting. This morning I have also uploaded four more sets of stats to Trainer Trends (around a dozen more to come in the next week), Carl Redden’s three to follow on the WTA Tour for 2016 including his ante-post advice for the Australian Open for the ladies’ title in January and Alan Potts has given an update on the French imports he has discussed in previous articles.

Having previewed the Hennessy a week ago, my job this afternoon for tomorrow’s Big Race Focus article is to try and find the Fighting Fifth winner or, failing that, the best ante-post bet of any of the other leading races this weekend in Britain and Ireland. And what a weekend!

The Fighting Fifth is not going to be the race we hoped for a fortnight ago which promised either My Tent Or Yours or Peace And Co for Henderson taking on Arctic Fire and Irving as now there is a fair chance that none of them will line up (Irving still could despite running last week) but it will still be an interesting race, the Hennessy is a belter even if Coneygree has been ruled out this morning after a poor schooling session, the Newbury undercard is always fascinating and the Long Distance Hurdle looks especially competitive this season plus three Grade 1s at Fairyhouse on Sunday.

In yesterday’s Cheltenham Ante-Post copy I kind of hinted that there was a problem with the Sky Bet Supreme Novices’ Hurdle favourite, Moon Racer, but left it at that as I wasn’t sure exactly what it was or how serious it was and, in case you missed the subsequent news, David Pipe has since dropped it in at the bottom of his long blog this week that he is on the easy list and hopes to have him back for “some of the spring festivals” so he has been pushed out to as big as 14/1. A shame as the Champion Bumper looks to be working out even better than usual this season with Modus, Yanworth, Bellshill, O O Seven, Up For Review, Stone Hard and Jetstream Jack all having come out this season and impressed already when winning a novice hurdle.
