Wednesday 13 March
The second day of the Festival today, and the ladies will be out in force. We didn't do too badly yesterday with a couple of winners, so we will look for a few more today. The great Sprinter Sacre should be a joy to watch in the Champion Chase but elsewhere there are a few chances to do the bookies. The selections are Back In Focus,Unioniste,Hollow Tree (each Way) in the Coral Cup, and I have heard a good word for Mick Channons Sgt Reckless in the bumper, although we would love to see I'm Fraam Govan run well for his breeder Michael Kehoe!! Back at home - San Telm will breeze today, and his participation at the weekend will be decided tomorrow evening. Benefit Cut has a low ballot for Kempton on Saturday, so we will keep options open for him.
