Hoorah for a non-runner and will a lack of pace ruin the big race today?

With Goodwood now under way at least I can add a review aspect to the article and not make myself look quite so stupid with my advanced comments of horses that now appear more likely to finish last than first! Running through the card from Tuesday (even I can’t get it wrong AFTER the race has been run), and hats off (Panamas of course) to Mark Johnston – training three of the first four home in the ultra competitive opener is some feat by anyone’s standards though I didn’t back (or even consider) Sennockian Star who scored at 14/1 but ...

A little Goodwood tittle-tattle from your soft Southern correspondent!

When I offered to write a little something extra for Goodwood this week I had hoped that the rain would stay away and the field would be a whole lot easier to solve – well Ron, you are always moaning about the races not having enough runners so pick the bones out of this lot - and we all know how much I hate cavalry charge handicaps, I leave those for Ron and the braver among you. My current plan is a brief mention for each race (no “tips”, just thoughts) and then a summing up each day – but that ...

Why are punters so shunned, will the youngsters see off their elders - and an addition to the Horses To Follow List

This week I feel in the mood for a little moan and to my surprise I am (sort of) turning on one of my favourite trainers in the excellent Roger Charlton, a true gentleman of the turf, trainer par excellence and all round nice guy, even talking to the media (including me) on the odd occasion! The age old argument over how much weight punters like you and me should carry in the billon pound a year horse racing industry will never be solved (well, not in my life time), but I am very wary of the run of the ...

Ron's question answered, the dreaded Shergar Cup, and have I found a handicap good thing (I doubt it)?

Sudden rain last weekend put paid to the best laid plans for myself, Ron, and most trainers up and down the Country as non-runners looked to outnumber those still engaged by race time and those contests left turned in to a farce thanks to slow tactics and no pace in most races, but as always, we live to fight another day. Before we get in to the action for the weekend I need to mention the divided race from Ayr last week which Ron asked me to look in to - so a quick phone call to Robin at the BHA ...

On my way home but we have the good and the bad of Durban racing plus two each way steals for Saturday

At the risk of boring you to tears I need to at least start my weekly input with a final summing up of my South African experience both good and bad – after all, I travelled this far on a learning mission in part for Post Racing, so its the very least I can do! With zero pace in the big race putting pay to any chance my section may have had (and I can assure you the jockey was almost certainly instructed to go on if necessary, advice that he patently ignored totally), I need to look back at the ...

The Fugue

Sean is in a world where internet has still to catch fire!

Least said soonest mended regarding last week (no need to hide -it happens) with two below par efforts from the horses involved but as they say, they aren’t machines and we all have a bad day at the office now…

Value for money and just 300+ wins to go for the payback!

Just two places from my Ascot suggestions last week but I walk away head held high – it is never the easiest meeting to find winners (unless you are Ron), but sits right next to Cheltenham for me – a…

The power of Post Racing Profiling!

Sometimes even I am absolutely stunned when the accuracy of Profiling produces a result such as that below. One of the most competitive handicaps of the season produced a definitive answer and those receiving the information were in clover. Baccarat…

Pauper punter so far at Ascot, Is Treve simply not as good as we thought – and the Lord Mayor on Saturday?

One 4/1 winner and a stone cold last on Saturday gone just about sums up the world of racing in my book, but a profit was made to level stakes yet again, and not too many services can claim that…

Channel 4 advert cancelled (?), possible Dubai decision fall out, the tail wags the dog yet again, – and two with chances for Saturday

Even I didn’t realise I had that much influence! Last week I write a small ticking off for the Channel 4 racing team, this week they announce the smallest television audience for the Epsom Derby in history – who would…
