Such is the nature of fixture planning these days that we have a meeting at Cartmel this afternoon, nothing tomorrow and then resume on Sunday.
A quick look at two races from Cartmel.
3.35: Shady Glen beat Wiffy Chatsby last Sunday at Worcester in a scruffy race.
Sean Bowen on Wiffy Chatsby lost an iron and had to kick the other out. Despite all efforts the impediment cost any chance.
Should Shady Glen put up a good run Wiffy Chatsby’s chances would be boosted when he runs in the following race.
4.40: Good of Luck put up a strong showing when winning on the flat at Newbury earlier this month. At the current double figure odds, he looks overpriced in this competitive hurdle.
Whilst the going is declared as good at Cartmel there is a chance of rain at the track later today.
The other meetings will all have varying degrees of soft ground to contend with. Both the meetings at Newmarket and Yarmouth are prone to non-runners as connections decide to wait for better ground.
Back tomorrow as Newcastle and Newmarket are the headliners, plus it is Derby day in Ireland.
