Wednesday 4 November
What a difference a week makes - last week we were prevented from running Bobby Gee at Haydock due to the words Good To Firm in their going description, tomorrow they wll have to inspect the track at 7.00am as there are currently parts of the course under water!! Bobby has skipped this meeting in favour of Market Rasen on Sunday, so the inspection will not affect us. 46mm of rain (nearly 2 inches) have fallen in the past 24 hours, so it looks like being touch and go up there. I think we saw a potential star of the future at Exeter yesterday - in my opinion it was a very good renewal of the Haldon (now William Hill) Gold Cup, and the winner Planet Of Sound will take high rank in my Ten To Follow, top class I think!! Keep an eye on Dee Ee Williams as well, as he was only beaten by his namesake Christian, who rode all the other jockeys to sleep. I also think that Dee Ee is potentially top class.
