Max Marks Your Card – 5th May

Welcome to today’s features, futures and daily fixtures, 5th  May 2011,

Today’s Golden Race is a Category MAX (lol) Group II  4yr 1600m €15 sponsored event. It has fielded 13 runners and will be run on good ground.

Newturf.comInteresting today is that there were no obvious standouts in the line up. There are 4/13 horses with tack change adding blinkers! It still fascinates me the use of blinkers, and I would say most of the time they are used not when horses are at full potential! Rather when fitness is somewhat low for the race.. just an observation, not fact…

Today I’m going out on a limb, I’m going for the Trifecta… Yep I like the look of 3 runners today;

  • Mastering from the stable Greg88 trained by Tfk782,

Colt looks to be on the up, running into this race with some nice form this season.

  • Fanzine-Rider from the stable Sorcier de Chamand trained by Arnels,

Nice looking filly, strong bloodlines and is in foal, suggesting owners like what they see.

  • Ruse De Brey another from Greg88 but managed by Samba the in-house trainer for team L’Esprit des Potos,

So there you have it, it would be a mean feat if owner Greg88 can be ITM with both of their hopefuls, they both look to be travelling nicely. I did at 1st have the 2 Greg88 stable mates in positions 1-2 but i think the filly will split them.


Principle Danger:

  • Melodian Girl tof a Tonym60 filly, will have Foxmulder on for the ride, showed strength in a previous race – you wouldn’t discount her. Tonym60 may have inside info on stablemate Santa Tala tof another filly on the up but I just think he may be reaching with her.

My Picks:

  • Mastering
  • Fanzine-Ride
  • Ruse De Brey


  • Melodian Girl tof
