Ive put in bold some of the horses I expect to run well which makes a shorter list for the week, however there are several horses in the list that are entered in The Wokingham, some wont get in the race but some will and I will be looking at that race and the Golden Jubilee in more detail on Friday evening. There are only 4 runners in the 8.10 at Beverley on Thursday and as luck would have it 3 are mentioned above so I will need to take a view on that tomorrow night. Of course you can check all comments for all horses mentioned by just putting their name in the search box at the right of the page and that will bring up a list of all the entries made since the start of the blog in April 2010.

Singeur looks to be ok at the weights and being in fine form so far this season is the natural choice in the 8.10 at Beverley on Thursday and one would hope that it doesnt develop into a tactical affair. Unfortunately Singeur's Jockey didnt take up a very good position for a 4 horse race and lost ground when he eventually made his move and thereby lost the race and the best horse didnt win.
