Interesting and Better Fancied

It has been brought to my attention by Steve Mullington that I am running a mile at Sandown Park in a little over two hours.

There's a newcomer called Cassini running in the 6.45pm race at Sandown today (10th Aug). It must be worth a little flutter.
Of the eleven runners listed, four have already taken one look at me and decided not to bother, so the field is already down to seven. Expect more drop outs as I go through my warm-up routine.   

Timeform comments: 
Cassini (IRE) : Foaled January 12. Galileo colt. Closely related to useful winner up to 1¼m Cunco. Dam winner up to 1¼m (2-y-o 7f/1m winner). Wears tongue strap and he's an interesting newcomer.
In a race that lacks confirmed pace-forcers, Dubhe could get the run of things. Of the better-fancied horses, Cassini is most likely to be ridden furthest from the pace.
I'm looking forward to it, although not too sure about this 'tongue-strap' thing. 

Update: Didn't enjoy that at all. Stupid name for an evening race - Slug And Lettuce Value Lunch EBF Maiden Stakes, and only won £577.20 for coming third. Me and my short head are off to bed.

Slowly away, in touch in last trio, ridden over 2f out, progress to chase winner over 1f out, no impression after, lost 2nd near finish, kept on (tchd 5/1).

Better luck next time Mr C!

Regarding your posts concerning the "backing all homes idea" I wonder if you had the stats to hand showing what would happen if you excluded the first and last 6 set of fixtures? Stewboss takes this approach with the view that form needs to settle down at first , with games at the tailend sometimes meaningless.

Ive tried looking at the data via the sites you suggested but cant quite seem to get my head around it to see where I should be looking.

Unlucky there on your debut Cassini. Still, you got third so there is plenty to build upon.

Riding for Ireland. Mrs Cassini will be pleased.

Does she stretch out to a length too?
