Tatty's Racing News and Tips - Sunday 18th December 2011

Before we go any further, The mighty Biggleswade United came up with a super performance, gaining an excellent 2-1 success against a very impressive Berkhamsted outfit yesterday. 

In front of 51 people (Mrs Tatty and yours truly being 2 of which), two Stuart Richardson goals (the 1st being as good a goal as you would see in the Premier League), brought the points to Second Meadow. Next up is AFC Dunstable on the 27th, when sadly I will not be able to attend.

As for the old nags, a 9/1 winner was welcome yesterday - today it's back to Kempton Park for a pretty desperate looking pre-Christmas card (sorry about the pun).

  • 1.40  Kai Mook - unplaced
  • 2.10  Focail Maith - non runner
  • 2.45  Lutine Charlie - unplaced
  • 3.15  Intomist - 2nd 100/30
  • 3.45  Oratorian - unplaced
  • 4.15  Land Hawk - 3rd DH 9/2
  • 4.45  White Shift - unplaced
  • 5.15  Fault - unplaced
Just one last note, I got up during the night to watch the final of the Super Six between Brit Carl "The Cobra" Froch and American Andre Ward. Hoping for a British win, I could only be impressed with the American who won a unanimous points victory. 
Andre Ward - superstar in waiting?
I get the impression that the man from Oakland is a superstar in the making, but what now for Froch? After the fight he seemed to think that given the right circumstances, he could beat Ward. To be honest, he was totally out of his depth and, if they met again, I think the American would win in an easier fashion.

Tomorrow (Monday) is Tatty's birthday and to celebrate this monumental occasion, I am going to give you all a rest from my hopeless horse selections and have a day off.

And on further thought, I have decided to take a Christmas break.
