Thursday Ripon racing

Barcelona just finished obliterating Shakhtar and Man Utd won the battle of England by winning at Stamford Bridge. Good winning recommendation on Barcelona and good feeling about the Red Devils winning. Man Utd might have a less-talented team (on paper) than Chelsea, but they have a younger team and the better manager, who instills that winning drive in them. It looks like we are going towards Barcelona-Madrid and Schalke-Man Utd semi-finals. Absolutely juicy, particularly the Spanish Clasico. There is still the return leg to go at Old Trafford though before I rush to premature conclusions about semi-final match-ups.

On Thursday, I like Monitor Closely in the 15:20 Ripon race-card. According to his trainer Michael Bell, he seems to be in great form, and in my opinion, should be amongst the finishers in this 5-horse field. I recommend him to Place in the first 2, his most serious opponent probably being King's Gambit who has a similar official rating. On their best form, these 2 horses should be a cut above the rest of the field. Too bad Hayley Turner is suspended, but George Baker can deliver the goods on Monitor Closely.

Place: Monitor Closely.
