Mandalay King comes good !

Mandalay King finally came good at Hamilton on Tuesday after running not so well at Thirsk previously, however he had first time headgear on and anyone who made a note of my comment from the "Up a bit, down a bit" post for June 8th and decided to stick with the beast will have been rewarded with a 14/1 winner ! .....alas I did not realise that it was running and missed my own note !!(see below)
Grafix Signs Handicap - Class 5 - 5f193y - Good To Soft - Carlisle
Feeling Fresh
won this in convincing fashion by 2 1/2 lengths from Mandalay King and has been raised 6lb by the handicapper to a mark of 76, the third Apache Ridge and fourth Hinton Admiral have already franked the form by winning at Pontefract off their respective marks of 70 and 67. Feeling Fresh looks capable of winning again granted similar conditions, this was his highest winning mark but he did have a good 5lb claimer on board which the stable will probably stick with. Mandalay King who was left alone by the handicapper will also be of interest next time.

A change to the format this week as I'm not doing "The Week Ahead" and will post as I go through the week, so please keep in touch with the blog as much as possible.
