Another tricky day and I did things a little differently today. I only had 2 names on my shortlist and both were being very heavily tipped both in the newspapers and on At The Races tv. Infact the selection was Jason Weaver’s nap and was tipped by 11 paper correspondents in the racing post. I was pretty sure I had done my checks to a decent standard and these were the 2 I came up with again when I double checked my work. Instead of laying mid morning as usual I waited until nearer the race to keep an eye on prices and see if any clues could be found there. They were both well inside my limit and didn’t seem to be in any rush to drift so no harm could be done. In the end I went with the selection as I could put up one more rival to this horse than I could the other shortlisted name (Party Frock). The selected horse came second, Party Frock followed suit and was traded in running as usual.
