Monday night it was good to see Salacres King and Salacres Achiles winning in A4 and A2 respectively. Achiles has been in a rich vein of form lately , winning 3 from his last 4 races and only beaten a neck in the other. King is a difficult dog to beat when he gets on the bunny , he's been a good dog to the kennel and it was pleasing to see him winning well last night.
Now I have to admit I do on occassions like to take a tilt in the betting ring. Even at short odds i'll play under the right circumstances. Farloe Tango is a dog i've highlighted on this blog before , he's a raw pup at the minute but he's a dog who could go to the very top of our game and in years to come be held in the same esteem as dogs like Some Picture and more recently Westmead Hawk. Yes , I believe he could be that good. I must admit I was hoping for a bit of 1/4 or better about him but even at the 1/5 chalked up he looked a dot on the card. I took up my position in the Notts ring awaiting the opening show and even though it wasn't quite as big a price as i'd hoped I still felt he was worth backing at short odds. I didn't quite get the amount on that i'd hoped with Peter Derrick however Fearless Eric obliged me for a fair chunk and now all that was left was for Tango to do what was expected. He didn't disappoint. Another phenomenal run from this wonderpup followed , clocking 2974 and winning by over 9 lengths. The sky is the limit , you have been warned.
I'd hoped that after last weeks narrow success that Salacres Rogue would remain in A6. My hopes of a stay of execution in A6 had been raised when Emporio Bluebell who had only been beaten by just over a length in Rogues previous race was dropped to A7 over the weekend. Not to be though and Rogue took her place in A5 on Tuesday mornings BAGS meeting. As is often the case the racing office were right afterall and she ran out an impressive winner , trapping in front the result was never really in doubt. Our only other winner on the card today was Salacres Maldini. He won in the only style he knows , leading early , going clear and hoping to hold on. The quick ground played into his hands today and he managed to secure victory.
Bye for now.
