Doncaster- Saturday 28th Jan 2012

Quicuyo | 3:55 | 2m | The Mirror Punters Club Handicap Steeple Chase

Jockey: Brian Hughes

Sponsor: Reid Quantum/ROA

Thoughts:

Quicuyo runs at Doncaster over 2m, he likes the course and he likes the obstacles as the fences are stiffer. The race is valuable, with a 40k total pot and 25k to the first home.

Quicuyo has a weight of 11st, a nice weight for him. In the opposition Kings Grey is off 10st/7 –whom he beat previously and is one of the horses we would hope Q can beat in this race. The other obvious horse in the race would be Shadrack at the bottom with 10st/4 for Sue & Harvey Smith. Shadrack also beat Kings Grey at Catterick on his previous outing and has bottom weight- he is one of the four most interesting in the race in my opinion; along with Shadrack, Tara Royal and Quicuyo. Hopefully he will be there or there about.

His two previous wins around Doncaster came with a weight of 11st/10-12, so hopefully he will run a very competitive race.

Sedgefield- Sunday 29th Jan 2012

Frontier Boy | 2:10 | 0-100 | 3m 3f | The Free Betting Handicap Hurdle Race

Jockey: Brian Hughes

Sponsor: Reid Quantum

Thoughts:

Frontier runs back at Sedgefield where he was 2nd, beaten just a nostril the last time, it is exactly the same trip and he carries the same weight at 11st/12 which is fine as he is a big strong horse and the race is more or less the same sort of opposition as before. We have Oniz Tiptoes who won the race previously and who has ran 6 days before, so may be feeling the excursions of his last race, off a mark of 84 and 10st/10. Frontier Boy should go very close he likes the course and he likes the trip and I would like to think he would be there or there about.
