1.00 LINGFIELD 7 FURLONG CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6 :
10 runners go to post for 7 furlong claiming stakes at Lingfield.This looks a decent looking claimer with the three main contenders being Corporal Maddox , Majuro , Chookie Avon &
CORPORAL MADDOX : Decent turf performer ,won competitive 7 furlong handicap at Ascot in July of mark 85 .Ran an eyecatching third last time in claimer on the fibresand at Southwell ,finishing strongly from well off the pace .Looks well treated at the weights and should go well.
MAJURO : C/D winner here at Lingfield ,has excellent record in claiming races (3121122) .Finished third on Saturday in fair 1 mile claimer at Wolverhampton .Best in at the weights here and will also be suited dropping back to 7 furlongs .
CHOOKIE AVON : In good form this year winning three times in handicap company .Finished close second in 7 furlong handicap at Wolverhampton last time only beaten head .Faces no easy task off top weight .
VERDICT : Majuro goes well in this grade and is 5LB clear on official handicap figures,though will need to improve on Saturdays 4 lengh third in claimer at Wolverhampton to win this claimer,
CORPORAL MADDOX is class above these rivals at best having won twice at Ascot ,though only third in claimer at Southwell last time appeared unsuited by the deep fibresand a .Will be suited returning to this faster surface at Lingfield ,having finished close second in class 2 handicap over C/D on his last start at the track .

Sunday, November 25, 2012
Another very disappointing week with £300 / 3.00 pts loss .November looks like being the worse month of the year ,with no winners from 6 bets for £535 / 5.35 pts loss so far in November .
The first bet of the week was on Thursday in 6 furlong claiming stakes at Kempton on course specialist Mambo Spirit who looked to have good each-way claims at 8-1 ,though after being slowly away never figured in the race finishing well beaten sixth behind Ertikaan for £100 loss on the race .
The second bet on Saturday was in 1 mile claiming stakes at Wolverhampton's evening fixture on Classic Colori ,who looked to have strong claims taking a big drop in class, into class 6 company for first time ,though put in very disappointing performance .After being well supported in the market going off 9-5 from 3-1 could only finish fourth behind Desert Vision for £200 loss on the race .
November's bets have been most disappointing with just two second's from 6 bets ,though these bad months do happen from time to time ,the bets this month have performed a very long way below standard .
Saying that long term profits are what count in this game and the blog is still over £6500 /65.00 pts in profit since the blog started in Feb 2010 .Hopefully we can get back on track very soon .
