We have close to 2000 people that take the free Newsletter, many having previously been subscribed members.
I hope they see enough in the FREE STUFF to have them feel it might be well worth rejoining us and enjoying the successes we’ll have this winter and beyond. Today they’ll receive this Newsletter.
If you are also on the database for that Newsletter you’ll receive two copies.
The section on the website will, of course, be open to all. The only requirement is that you need to be signed in to view it. Now might be a good idea to check your website permissions.
Yesterday I advised those that visited the website with the OF INTEREST selection I provided subscribed members. It resulted in a very nice 4/1 winner.
Jack Barber will be looking to put down a marker early in his career and his early runners will be well worth looking out for.
The Ratings simply came alive yesterday. We are now close to what I call our core season, when they should work as they did during the summer. You will have seen for yourself how they have proven more accurate as the last couple of weeks have gone by. A 25/1 top rated winner last week, bits and bobs since then but yesterday the kindling took hold and it’s very nearly time to throw a log on!
Do not say I didn’t tell you.
I received an e-mail from John Morris yesterday, who was skipping through hoops at the results his book has produced since it became available.
The book had a 1-2-3 in the bumper at Worcester on Wedensday, SPs 22/1, 20/1 & evens fav – CSF paid £378.21.
Skidoosh, a debut runner from Ben Pauling’s stable, beat his brother-in-law (Charlie Longsdon) runner, also a newcomer, Lisdoonvarna Lad. Great result!
Also, on the same card, a 25/1 second from the Graeme McPherson stable, My Charity.
My view of the horse read…”His new connections have taken a punt on this horse, that should be given the benefit of the doubt that there is a racehorse inside him desperately trying to get out.”
Gave the odds on fav a bit of a fright!
Book now had 43 winners 38 placed from 154 runners since 24th September.
It’s going well for those who have the book at their finger tips.”
As I say, do not say I didn’t advise you got hold of a copy.
The old saying, “it’s never to late…etc”, is still true but if someone has got you a copy for Christmas, it’ll definitely be to late by then.

T* – CAPTAIN FELIX….-31
DOLLAR AND A DREAM….-40
T – DALMARELLA DANCER….-40
REVIEW: Only five runners achieved a + figure here and they produced five of the first six home in a 12 runner race. What pleased me most of course, was the top rated horse winning as a +26 horse should! During a season you will not see many achieve a rating of +20, let alone +26. He won as his rating suggested he would, too.
SOUTHWELL 4-15 – CLASS 4 – HURDLE
EARLY RETIREMENT….+9 – WON 9/2
* – AWESOME ROSIE….+8 – 3RD 3/1
* – LE DAUPHIN….-12

REVIEW: I had only one race to work with from this track and it produced yet another top rated winner….9/2. Top two in the first three home….always pleasing.
CARLISLE 2-50 – CLASS 4 – CHASE

ROUGE ET SAGE….-40
H – CALVIGNY….-40 – 2ND 5/1
REVIEW: I mentioned in yesterday’s Newsletter that a micro-system dedicated to horses wearing first time headgear might be something to consider, following the 33/1 winner the day before and here is another that showed an improved performance.
My figures were absolutely spot on, save for that thing down at the bottom spoiling the top six party….my top six making up the rest of the first seven home.
CARLISLE 3-55 – CLASS 3 – HURDLE
T – SPECTATOR….+17 – 2ND 16/1
T – HINT OF GREY….+13 – 4TH 12/1
* – BARNEYS JACK….+11 – WON 4/7
T – COUSIN OSCAR….+8
T – ZENAFIRE….-40
REVIEW: The top rated gave that odds on shot a mighty scare and going to the last looked like he might hang on. He looked as if blinkers might have got him home but regardless, I have to be happy with those numbers.
CARLISLE 4-25 – CLASS 3 – CHASE
T – KAP JAZZ….+15
* – COURTOWN OSCAR….+4 – WON 7/1

REVIEW: Two horses obtained a + figure, one of them wins @ 7/1. The guys at Astech Gold would have made a fortune yesterday!

REVIEW: The one weak link in the chain yesterday but that will always happen. We cannot win them all.
As promised earlier in the weak, I have now reverted back to the template we’ll use for the rest of the season. I’ll be tinkering with a few things, introducing a dedicated T Factor section so that you can simply visit that if those horses are all you wish to work with.
Cheltenham today and very much looking forward to watching!
This morning I’m off to meet Ken, Chairman of The Clatterbridge Hospital League of Friends. Much to discuss as I’ve not seen him for a couple of months but I want to organise another raffle for them. They intend having built, a bungalow, on the site of the hospital, for patients with mental health problems who would use the facility to help them get used to having daily responsibility for themselves, before going home again.
They’ll need a lot more than the £25k we raised for the garden!
I’ll then get back to my office to work on tomorrow’s racing, which is, quite simply, stunning.
Have a great day!
OF INTEREST SELECTIONS
A second Newsletter will be going out to subscribed members as soon as I return from my meeting. I’ll be looking for anything OF INTEREST at both Newbury or Doncaster, concentrating on the juvenile events.

NOTES: Obviously I’m still not taking anything for granted. My betting bank remains closed and I’m simply going to make sure everything is ready for you come Badger day.
If I were betting here my own play would be the horses sitting 1, 2 and 4….they have winning form on the going as currently described and attracted a Rating that suggests they should be competitive….all quite simple, really.
Obviously that would be dangerous because that thing sitting third best is trained by a bloke in Ireland that is simply flying right now. He trained the winner of a big hurdle race in America last week, and saddled six winners on the card one day, too.
I’ll take my satisfaction from the figures performing well….if they do.
