Once, Twice, Three Times A Lady?

October 4th

It's Arc Day and could be an historic day if Treve can become the first-time winner of Europe's greatest Flat race (sorry Derby fans). I've previewed the Longchamp card in Race Previews and I've chanced a couple against Treve in hope more than expectation. If neither of them can win, I'll be cheering on probably the best filly/mare I have seen, and that is saying something coming from Miesque's biggest fan.

Mike Henderson has previewed the World Grand Prix Darts and Ross Miles bids to follow up his amazing Week 3 selections in the NFL with a proposed yankee this evening in Guest Contributions.

Before all that, Carl Redden's pre-tournament 13/2 advice for the ATP event in Kuala Lumpur, Feliciano Lopez, has made the final this morning where he plays David Ferrer and is now 6/4 to lift the crown giving punters who took the price options. Carl's pre-tournament 3/1 advice for the ATP event in Shenzhen, Marin Cilic, is also going strong and has reached the semi-finals and is now 7/4 for the title. Hopefully at least one of them can get the job done.

The Horses To Follow section is for Flat horses mainly because virtually all the jumps horses that would interest me would be good enough to be running at the weekend so therefore would be covered in Race Previews when the season starts properly. That said, I added my first horse of the new season to my ATR Tracker last week. Her name is Native Princess who, on the face of it, was a disappointing fourth in a Bangor mares' novices' hurdle having been sent off second-favourite having won her previous two races. She was also subsequently disquaified as her rider weighed in light. This was the first time I had seen her and was initially just taken with her appearance. During the race I like the way she travelled but she was consistently losing her rhythm with a series of sloppy jumps. Trained by Stuart Edmonds who showed what he could do when he brought back another strong-travelling horse in Cloonacool from an injury to win a very nice pot at Market Rasen, she could be the type to be overpriced next time off the back of this run but, if connections can sort her jumping out, she has the engine to be a factor in the better-class mares' novice hurdles this season.
