Thoughts on Sport and Tatty's Tips - Monday 11th December 2011

A couple of winners along with an 8/1 place gave us a reasonable Sunday afternoon at Southwell.

It’s quite obvious that today is a Monday by looking at the racing cards on offer for the day. There are only 2 meetings – a National Hunt card at Fakenham, along with an 8 race all-weather offering from Wolverhampton, which can best be described as pretty dismal.

As I mentioned last Friday, the 3.45 race will be the last for the almost legendary The Tatling, before his retirement from racing. I am not only suggesting him as the horse to watch in this race for sentimental reasons, but also the fact that I believe he is capable of running well and could get into the frame. I truly hope so anyway. 

2.15        Kidlat - unplaced
2.45        Make Up - unplaced
3.15        Jwala - won 9/4
3.45        The Tatling - won 16/1
4.15        Admirable Duque - won 11/2
4.45        Perfect Mission - won 2/5
5.15        Deslaya - 2nd 7/2
5.45        Yellow Printer - unplaced

Further to Amir Khan's defeat in his title fight against Lamont Peterson, the English former light-welterweight world champion has stated that he believes that Washington DC is bad for boxing and he will never fight there again. He claims that his people are in negotiations for a re-match, to be held at a neutral venue.

Just  a suggestion Amir, rather than looking for mega fame and fortune over the seas, why not return to your English roots and fight back here in the UK again in front of your biggest fans?
