AL SIMMO (second, 6f fillies’ handicap, Salisbury, Thursday, September 7th)

AL SIMMO only found one too good in the ten-runner European Bloodstock News EBF ‘Lochsong’ Fillies’ Handicap but has now lost all 12 starts in fields of nine or more runners. In smaller line-ups her record stands at 11121111262 (7-11) for a profit of £29.75 to the usual £1 stake. In Class 3 or lower company, her small-field record reads 11121111 (7-8). She’ll be something to bet on when next encountering such conditions.


CHESTER LE STREAK (third, 6f handicap, Ripon, Tuesday, September 5th)

CHESTER LE STREAK was backed into 7-2 favouritism in the 6f Ripon Stable Staff Championships 2023 Handicap, doing best of those to race stands’ side when third of the 14 runners. His record on turf in August/September now reads 31213 (2-5) and he can be supported next time.


GERT LUSH (eighth, 1m2f handicap, Salisbury, Thursday, September 7th)

GERT LUSH finished an eight-length last of eight in the Class 4 Lester Aldridge Handicap at Salisbury last week, but her patient style wasn’t ideal in this small-field contest, and she has yet to win above Class 5 level. Roger Teal’s mare is five from 21 on turf in Class 5 or lower grade (+£19.25 to a £1 level stake at SP) and she should find another race before the end of the current campaign.


MAX VEGA (third, 3rd, 1m4f Group 3, Kempton, Saturday, Kempton 9th)

MAX VEGA is 0-7 in June, July and August but can usually be relied upon to run his race in spring/autumn, recording form figures of 2110321571363 (4-13) outside of the peak summer period. Backing him blind in the cooler months would have returned a profit of £24.90 to a £1 level stake at SP. His 25-1 front-running third to Bay Bridge in the Group 3 Unibet September Stakes was a solid effort and a return trip to Newbury for the St Simon stakes next month – a race he won last year – will surely be on the cards.


MIGHTY POWER (sixth, 7f handicap, Kempton, Saturday, September 9th)

MIGHTY POWER was a big eyecatcher in a 6f handicap at Carlisle on September 1st, doing well to finish a close-up second at 12-1 on a track that was proving especially unkind to his patient running style. He took a big walk in the betting prior to his run in the 7f Unibet More Boosts In More Races at Kempton last Saturday and could never get involved under a hold-up wide from his poor wide draw (albeit the winner was came from well off the pace and was drawn even wider!). There will be other days, perhaps at Newcastle – the scene of his last two wins.


MOSS TUCKER (won, 5f Group 1, the Curragh, Sunday, September 10th)

The rain came in time for MOSS TUCKER in the Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Flying Five Stakes and the 16-1 shot ran on well to score by half a length from 22-1 chance GET AHEAD. The five-year-old son of Excelebration is improving with age and the Prix de l’Abbaye is the obvious next step.

RAASEL (won, 5f handicap, Haydock, Saturday, September 9th)

RAASEL took his record on turf in the September-October period to 1111171 (6-7) when landing the 5f Class 2 Betfair Be Friendly Handicap at Haydock last Saturday, with the sole defeat a seventh of 19 in last year’s Group 1 Flying Five stakes at the Curragh. Mick Appleby’s six-year-old might be able to boost those figures further when he runs in the Listed Scarborough Stales at Doncaster on Sunday.


SOPHAR SOGOOD (won, 2m handicap, Kempton, Friday, September 8th)

SOPHAR SOGOOD usually thrives in the autumn and returned to winning ways with a comfortable success in the 2m SIG Building Solutions Handicap at Kempton last Friday night. John Butler’s six-year-old was very strong in the betting and now has form figures from September to December of 1229132391283101 (5-16) for a profit of £16.00 to a £1 level stake at SP.


THE PUG (won, 1m3f handicap, Southwell, Wednesday, September 6th)

THE PUG kept on strongly to land the 1m3f Racing League On Sky Sports Racing Handicap at Southwell last Wednesday, taking his all-weather record in headgear to 316221 (2-6), including form figures on Tapeta of 221 (1-3). The son of Churchill has been shoved up 5lb to a mark of 62 but could have further improvement to come on this surface.


TOAD OF TOAD HALL (won, 2m5.5f handicap chase, Fontwell, Sunday, September 10th)

TOAD OF TOAD HALL took his chase record at Fontwell to 21611 (3-5) when comfortably landing the Bet Boost At bet365 Handicap Chase by six lengths from BENSINI. His most recent Fontwell victory was followed by a 28-length fifth of six at Market Rasen and he could be one to avoid if changing venues next time.
