Heading to the moon via a Kempton spring

first_imgDO YOU KNOW THE WAY TO SAN HOVEApple has won approval for plans to build its new “spaceship” headquarters in northern California.The 2.8 million square foot building got a unanimous green light during a meeting of Cupertino City Council.Apple boss Tim Cook tweeted his delight, saying: “Our home for innovation and creativity for decades to come. Cupertino City Council Gives Unanimous Approval for Apple’s New Campus.”The new HQ, near San Jose, was the brainchild of co-founder Steve Jobs, who presented the plans to the council in June 2011.In what is said to be his last public appearance, Jobs said the main building was like a “little spaceship” and said it had the potential to be the “best office building in the world”.More than 14,000 employees will come together in Apple Campus 2, whose four-storey main building includes a huge garden area at its centre.The Star Sports team are in the process of persuading Ben Keith to lodge a similar application with the planning department at Hove Council. Just two minor modifications. (1) It will be in the shape of a star (2) instead of a garden in the centre, there will be, er, Hove. Kempton 6.20LIVE RUKFLY ME TO THE MOONA maiden auction stakes at Kempton wouldn’t be the normal calling point for our event of the day but it’s the absence of any football in the evening (does strange things to the brain) the train has indeed pulled in at Sunbury.Anyway, cliché time, I think I’ve found a winner and a 3/1 winner at Kempton pays the same as a 3/1 winner at Champions Day at Ascot (more on that later in the week – but for the time being just work on soft ground horses).The horse in question is Moonspring.She ran a cracker over course and distance last time out and ran into a Roger Charlton trained winning favourite Tides Reach and may have even gone close to beating her if not for being hampered at the start. Technically tonight’s race is better (class 5 v class 6 last time for Moonspring) but in reality I think it looks easier looks no better or worse than the selection judged by a course fourth last time out.Softly She Treads belied odds of 50/1 to run well in fourth on debut at Goodwood and has chances if improving for the switch to Polytrack but I’m heading to the moon, via a spring. Zebedee style.STAR FORECAST(stake between 0.5 and 10 points)6 points win MOONSPRING at around 7/2last_img
