Aiden O’Brien suffered a major setback yesterday in his quest to break the world record for grade 1 victories 2when he failed to win the Bet 365 MIle - you have to say that September was an unlucky loser.
The Dewhurst Stakes today but the market speaks against him with Expert Eye an odds on favourite.
The Caesarewitch is another major feature on today's Newmarket card. Known as the race that starts in one county and finishes in another - this staying marathon will turn into the usual cavalry charge up the straight. My two against the field are John Constable and Shrewd.
The jumps season proper starts today with the two day Chepstow Festival . It brings back many happy memories for me and my racing syndicate members as Hasty Prince ran away with the race for us in 2004.
If you want to join our syndicate - today is your last opportunity - I have narrowed the 1600 plus entries at the Newmarket HIT sale down to 15 possibles out of the 1650 lots. I did the same thing last year and ended up buying BEDROCK!
My two against the field in the Tote Silver Trophy at 4.10 are Drumcliff and Bags Groove.
