50/1 winner, Grumeti, in the Cesarewitch at New-
market last month (due to laziness, ill health!) one
has decided to analyse super-Saturday handicaps
in future; price-wise they make sense and Esteaming,
trained by David Barron, sticks out like a beacon on
This five-year-old Sir Percy gelding has several
pounds in hand and the Thirsk handicap maestro is
making sure by booking Joe Doyle, who still claims
a 3lbs apprentice allowance; Graham Gibbons has
ridden Esteaming in seven of nine races this year
and on many other occasions.
Given underfoot conditions we reckon every pound
will equate to at least a length; this is obviously the
thought process behind Barron recruiting Doyle and
it could well be a procession if Esteaming acts on
the ground. The progeny of his sire invariably prefer
Manhattan Swing and Blue Hussar have prospects
of making one of four places for each-way backers
but Esteaming first, the rest nowhere, is our forecast
and currently the price is 16/1.
An eight-race programme kicks off with two divi-

Both finished well into second places last month
in fast-run races, achieving half-decent TH marks;
unless there are above average newcomers in oppo-
sition, which seems unlikely at this stage, Cee Jay
and Tanaasub should provide us with an each-way
bet to nothing double. Hope springs eternal!
TORONTO---Barbadian Patrick Hus-
bands continued to make a strong finish
to the Woodbine season when he scored
a brace on Thursday s eight-race card
at the renowned Ontario oval.
The 42-year-old reinsman took the
opening race with favourite Decisions-
decisions and returned in race five to
triumph with another favourite Kiseki.
With his latest success, Husbands
moved to 103 wins for the season, well
adrift of frontrunners Eurico Rosa da
Silva and Luis Contreras who are locked
in a heated contest for the 2015 Woodbine
Da Silva, the 2010 champion, has 158
wins while Contreras, who swept every
championship between 2011-13, is two
back in second.
Husbands is the reigning champion
after edging Contreras last season.
On Thursday, he opened his account
in a five furlong sprint, carrying the two-
year-old chestnut gelding Decisionsde-
cisions to a strong 2-3/4 length victory
over the two-year-old maidens.
Husbands and Decisionsdecisions
stalked the pace set by Moroccan Dream
before bursting into contention in the
stretch, getting to the front with a furlong
to run and reaching the wire unchal-
lenged. In race five over 6-1/2 furlongs,
Husbands brought Kiseki from last at
the half-mile to get the three-year-old
filly up in time to beat the three-year-

The Woodbine season wraps up month
An appearance at Newbury s Hennessy meet-
ing could be on the cards for Aristo Du Plessis
after he continued his ascent through the ranks
at Musselburgh, yesterday.
James Ewart s five-year-old ended last season
in fantastic form after successive triumphs at Cat-
terick, Wetherby and Ayr and while a fall on his
Wetherby return was hardly an ideal start to the
new campaign, he showed he had suffered no ill
effects when regaining the winning thread back
at Ayr last Saturday. An even-money favourite
turned out just six days later under a penalty,
those who took the prohibitive odds prior to the
Donaldson Timber Engineering Handicap Hurdle
will have been counting their winnings from a
long way out.
Ridden by regular partner and talented condi-
tional Dale Irving, Aristo Du Plessis dominated
proceedings from the front and came home 12
lengths clear of Irish raider Space Ship to set up
a potential appearance in Newbury s Bet365 Inter-
mediate Hurdle, a race better known as the Gerry
Feilden. Following a treble at the track on Thursday,
trainer Lucinda Russell continued her excellent
run as Present Flight claimed the Thistle Systems
Max The Cube Novices Limited Handicap Chase.
The 13/8 favourite was left in front after the
