NEWS RACING POST WEEK MONDAY 17th TO SUNDAY 23rd OCTOBER 2011

GRAHAM DENCH TODAY'S BIG TALKING POINT
HIT OR MYTH? QUANDARY FOR PUNTERS OVER TWO YEAR OLD COLT CAMELOT ....

BEWARE TAKING A SHORT PRICE ABOUT THE RACING POST TROPHY FAVOURITE
“IF THE BETTING is to be believed Aidan O’Brien’s CAMELOT is more or less past the post in the Racing Post Trophy – he is as short as evens for this afternoon’s contest the 3.00pm (RPT)  at Doncaster and no bigger than 12-1 clear favourite for next years Investec Derby. Yet it requires a huge leap of faith to go in at cramped odds now. Available at 5-2 on Tuesday, when the stable’s Royal Lodge winner DADDY LONG LEGS was still in the equation, he is a crazy price for a once-raced colt whose debut win in a five-runner maiden at Leopardstown has been let down not only by runner-up  ALL APPROVED, who was beaten for a sixth successive time at Bellewstown on his last start and boasts a Racing Post Rating of just 76, but also by third-placed FORT SAM HOUSTON, who has since been beaten at Killarney and Listowel.


“ CAMELOT could only beat what was put before him and there is no denying he won readily after coming from last to first, but he still has a great deal to prove. What is more, while many will take encouragement from O’Brien’s five wins in the last 13 runnings of today’s Group 1, it has not always been the Ballydoyle No 1 who has done best in the Racing Post Trophy.  Short  - priced favourites who have been included EAGLE MOUNTAIN,  fourth at 8-11 in 2006 ....


SEPTIMUS, third at 5-6 the year before that and the eminently forgettable CASTLE GANDOLFO, beaten by his brilliant stablemate HIGH CHAPARRAL when  8-13 in 2001. In fact, CAMELOT’S stablemate LEARN, although more exposed, clearly has better form and so for that matter do Listed winner FENCING, easy Newmarket maiden winner ENCKE, Somerville Tattersall third  ZIP TOP and Solario winner  TELWAR, who is the only Group winner in the field yet a complete rag in the betting.  Still fancy taking short odds?


“While the Racing Post Trophy pretty much represents the last knockings of the domestic turf season, the unexpected return of duel Queen Mother Champion Chase winner MASTER MINDED in Aintree’s Old Roan Chase will for many fans herald the start of the jumps season proper. Sadly MASTER MINDED appears to have frightened off most of the opposition in this limited handicap, run this year in celebration of the race’s three - time winner MONET’S GARDEN, but ALBERTA’S RUN, who chased MASTER MINDED home at a respectful nine lengths in the Melling Chase in April, will be no pushover in receipt of 10lb.

“Back on the Flat, many punters will be drawn to Newbury’s Totescoop6 HBLB Handicap, which has attracted just the sort of field the Levy Board were hoping for when they threw £30,000 at it.

“Luca Cumani has the first two in the betting in KIRTHILL and NAQSHABBAN, but they bet 11-2 the 16- runner field and this is truly a race in which a good case can be made for a dozen or more. It is one of two new £50,000 handicaps at Newbury – the other is a hurdle on New Year’s Eve – and there will hopefully be more such initiatives in 2012 on Saturdays that are thought likely to benefit particularly from a high value and higher quality handicap."

SIMON HOLT CALLING THE HORSES
Commentator broadcaster presenter Bloodhorse illiterate
SIMON has continued to cover many important events including the Cheltenham Festival, 1,000 and 2,000 Guineas, St Leger, King George VI Chase and, from 2007, Glorious Goodwood. He also called the Irish Derby once (in 2000 when Sinndar triumphed as RTE used the BBC's Jim McGrath to call the race in the absence of Tony O'Hehir), as well as the 2001 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe when the TV rights briefly transferred from the BBC to Channel 4.

PAUSE FOR THOUGHT
J MARGARET CLARKE TURFCALL
HORSERACING REGULATION
CLOSE  on a year ago now the British Horseracing Authority (BHA Regulation) made the decision that a whip review was needed. Following which we are led to believe that the Australian Jamie Stier and veterinary Tim Morris were chosen to lead this review.
 
One would have thought the very first thing that this BHA whip team needed to do was to set out a document with the title ‘WHIP TACTICS’ 
1.       ACCEPTABLE BLOODHORSE LITERATE WHIP TACTICS
            
2.      UNACCEPTIBLE  BLOODHORSE ILLITERATE WHIP TACTICS
TODAY after all this time and a 78 page BHA Whip Review Document published just weeks ago, coming into effect on Monday October 10th  and without any trial period, has proved a shocking and drastic disaster on all fronts, even contaminating the French rider Christophe Soumillon with horrendous punishment. This whole BHA regulation issue handled by a team of unqualified Bloodhorse Illiterate BHA  team workers. 
GUEST STAR FELIX FRANCIS SHOWS US HIS NEW BOOK - GAMBLE

GAMBLE STRAIGHT INTO TOP TEN          
PDFPrintE-mail
GAMBLE by Felix Francis has gone straight into the Top Ten UK Hardback Bestseller chart at reaching No. 7, three days into its UK release.
Read some of the fantastic UK and US reviews here:

  • “Nonpareil jockey/suspense writer Dick Francis's son Felix, who coauthored his late father's last four novels (Crossfire, 2010, etc.), turns in a solo performance fully worthy of the family name.” Kirkus
  • “Those who prefer something less gory will enjoy Felix Francis’s Gamble, in which an American financial adviser is shot dead seconds before the start of the Grand National. Dick, Felix’s late father, would have approved.” Telegraph
  • Francis, having coauthored four horse-racing thrillers (Crossfire, etc.) with dad Dick Francis (1920–2010), proves himself more than capable of carrying on the family legacy alone. Francis shares his father's gift for brisk storytelling--and for creating a sympathetic, wounded, but determined hero.” Publishers Weekly
  • “Felix Francis continues his father's New York Times- bestselling legacy with another edge-of-your-seat read that's classic Francis.” FictionDB
  • “It appears that Felix Francis can write on his own. A family tradition can continue. If he continues to turn out stories of this quality, Felix Francis’ name doubtless will reach the top of the book one day. “Gamble” has all the things that loyal readers have anticipated in their annual Francis fix: a taut intelligent story full of suspense, danger and mystery in spare and fast-moving prose that keeps the readers’ attention.” The Washington Times
