Full House

Full House runs in the Tony Bethell Memorial Handicap (7.15) at Pontefract this evening.

Better known as a chaser, his recent return to the flat at Sandown was a nice preparation for this race. He will certainly appreciate the extra distance here, the stiff track and quicker ground. To temper that I note the trainer hasn't had a winner in more than 30 days.

The Chamberlain Addiscott Partnership own this horse. These names can be seen over the door of The Exmouth Arms public house which is situated just around the corner from Euston station in London. If I have to wait for a train at Euston, I like to pop in for a pint of Guinness or two; Carl Llewellyn's silks from his National victory on Earth Summit are on the wall.

Nine runners in this evening's race and the 3/1 available generally looks a fair price.
