12.10pm Horse racing never ceases to astound me. As many of you know I am a form student of Richard Fahey’s horses and those that frustrate me most are those Dr Marwan Koukash older horses with the owner doing the entries and the jockey bookings, allegedly. So there was I chuffed when it seemed #FantasticMrFahey had had a bit of a clear out of Dr K horses when lo and behold in the past ten days Ian Williams has coaxed wins out of Gabrial the Thug 5/2 (Not won since Sept. 2015 and 11 runs), Modernism 20/1 (Not won since Dec. 2015 and 13 runs) and Masamah 20/1 (Not won since July 2013 and 35 runs!!) and Patrick Morris got a victory out of Pushkin Museum 11/4 (Not won since 27th June 2014 and 19 runs)!!
Dr K is 5 from 9 in the last ten days and in this sort of form it wouldn’t surprise me if Gabrial bolts up in a Group race in Meydan!!
