Bobby Gee is declared to run at Sandown tomorrow. It looks a bit hot at the top of the weights, but he is in good form, and is so consistent, he can always be relied on to run his race. Jamie Moore takes over from S.P as Sam is claimed to ride Widely Accepted in the race for his boss Oliver Sherwood, so it will be interesting to see what Jamie makes of our Bobs. Well done to the 'eagle eyed' Nicole who rang yesterday to say that she had spotted the Bob Back half brother to Important Business had won his Maided Point to Point in Ireland, on debut. I was in negotiations to purchase this chap privately a couple of years ago, but unfortunately it came to nothing, but he obviously has an engine and it will be interesting to see how he gets on when he runs 'on the track'. He is called Carmun and may be worth watching!
