THE POET LAUREATE’S JOB IS SAFE

‘Tis the day after Xmas and we’re all feeling perky.

We’ve opened our prezzies and gobbled our turkey.

 

To Kempton we go, with four races shown

And Wetherby too, for just one alone.

 

The Ladbrokes King George is the big race today

With five of the best doing battle – hooray!

 

If our choice should win, we’ll all be delighted

So arise Cyrname and prepare to be knighted.

 

The Ladbrokes Chase is opening the show

And Commanche Red looks the right way to go.

 

The Kauto Star comes next, with seven for choice

If it’s Master Tommytucker, rejoice, rejoice!

 

The Christmas Hurdle may look a ‘no brainer’

As it’s usually won by one certain trainer.

 

Top three in the betting for that Henderson fellow –

But we’ve got the answer – it’s called Ch’Tibello.

 

The 2.10 at Wetherby completes the set

And NTD‘s Rocco is our kind of bet.

 

Now for a lie down in a darkened room.

Sanity returns tomorrow.

Summary: 

Cyrname 3.05 Kempton 8pts win @ 11-8

Commanche Red 1.20 Kempton 1.5pts e/w @ 15-2 (4 places)
