Saturday 7th July
The paucity of decent field big race Handicaps today is probably masked by other events at 3pm that will grip the Nations interest far more!
The fact is that we are seeing a real impact now from the dry weather and Firm Going and many Trainers are unwilling to risk horses on Going, where Racing is becoming a bit of a lottery, as horses simply won't let themselves down, as they feel the "sting and pain" in their fragile legs off the hard turf. We will look more in to this with an article endorsed by a Trainer who I spoke to last week, which will hopefully prove informative and helpful; where he explains the physical affect on his horses of the Going and heat exhaustion racing and travelling, and the steps taken to improve the situation.
We have ELITE SERVICE Tips from David from the 2 biggest Handicaps of the day at Haydock and Sandown.
