Banker or Blowout??
Kikos runs at Huntingdon tomorrow, but sadly not in a leg of the Scoop 6 for which they have decided to incorprate 4 flat races from Lingfield, disappointing not to be part of it, we'll just have to win the race and the millions as well! There are 12 runners, so it is no easy task, but a few have no chance and judged on his last run and the form that is coming from the race he should stand a very good chance. He is healthy and fit and Sam will be doing his best, let's hope we get some luck! I have an instant cure for depression - for all of you who saw the last race at Wincanton you will know instantly what I mean! If you are ever feeling down just get this race up on the computer screen and have a look - it is the funniest thing i have seen for years!! I laughed for about 1/2 an hour!! The winning rider (you can't call him a jockey) was a local 44 year old farmer who in winning a race fulfilled his lifes dream - and celebrated!! About 1/2 a furlong from the finish with 2 horses close up behind. It was great to see and fully encapsulated the spirit of our great sport, although I don't think AP or Choc will be losing any sleep!! Good luck to all Scoop 6 players!
