Horses And Dreams of Galveston

Cheltenham starts in about fourteen hours not that I'm counting or anything. The only tip I got so far is for Kempes in the first at half one or so. Cousin Vinny the favourite is reported not to be 100% so a few shekels will be invested in the ex flat horse who should have plenty toe for the normally helter skelter opener. Also the fact that the horse is named after a footballer helps even though same footballer deprived the poor Dutch in the '78 World Cup Final. The song for Cheltenham will be Wichita Lineman (or was it Rhinestone Cowboy, I always get the two horses mixed up) as Glenn Campbell was reported to be flown over by two millionaires as a horse with the same name as the song was running in the Bumper (National Hunt flat race). A week of cigarette butts and the hope that no one takes my thumbs stretches out ahead of me!


Just for the heck of it, i might as well post Galveston too, cracking anti-war tune.

It's a term my Grandfather used a lot!
Hardly a scientific method but it works for me.

And there I was with a ruler and measuring tape along with a calculator studying form and trends... Science sucks! Right from now on I'm only going to back horses with cool names

Sleepy said...

It's the only way to go!
