With Ron away I feel I ought to add the odd extra article but as we all know, early week racing is not all that inspiring, so finding something worth mentioning isn’t that easy! Rock On Ruby changed all that yesterday afternoon, and as a soft southerner I think I …Read More »
Europeans get a bloody nose, off to the sunshine (please), a tasty Saturday trio, and come back Ron, all is forgiven (I need those stats).
Managing to be proved right and wrong at the same time is a neat trick of mine, but I managed it and in spades at Hong Kong last weekend, beat that if you can! The horses I suspected would run big races generally speaking failed to perform, but as we …Read More »
With Ron away and no podcast I found myself at a bit of a loose end, so thought I would chuck in a brief review of the Huntingdon card this afternoon though to be fair, no promise I have too many future winners for you! Confessions first, and I invariably …Read More »
A runner for Postracing Sunday, a new a/w track just for Ron – and winners for the weekend of course!
***Stop Press*** I have just received info via Ron that Sleep In First runs at Kelso Sunday in the Kevin Oliver Christmas Handicap Hurdle currently due off at 1.25pm. ***Stop Press 2*** As I write I have just received a press release regarding planning permission for a new all-weather track …Read More »
Winners last week, a horse with all four legs, and shoot me, I have done it again – listened to a trainer!
Two winners and an each way fourth that did what they all seem to do and finished one place out of the money after I backed him at a massive 16/1 only to see Long Run backed down to 7/1 and run a blinder if not quite up to paying …Read More »
Podcast completed, form book digested, bets calculated and time to move forward once again. A frankly awful week last week for me personally with a sizeable bet (don’t tell the Mrs) on African Gold going astray, as he cork screwed pretty much every fence (never been known to do that …Read More »
Well the podcast was a lot more profitable than my article last week but these things happen and with Cheltenham this weekend, I am really looking forward to a load of winners. Firstly though, I need to sort of apologise for the fact that the horses here are a repeat …Read More »
Friday from now on for my weekly article as it gives me a chance to see what is running over the jumps on Saturday afternoon but firstly, a little trumpet blowing never goes amiss however rarely I may deserve it! Three each way bets at Santa Anita last weekend saw …Read More »
Patriotic stupidity ahead of the Breeders Cup plus two horses to follow – what more can a punter want?
Those of you who listened to our podcast last week will have noted how fearful we were about the going at the weekend, and we were sadly proved correct as I swear all the winners were doing the front crawl while those I backed settled for doggy paddle? Not a …Read More »
Where is Noah, a better than expected race at Doncaster, and some Champagne on ice – until next March?
Forty days and forty nights of rain may sound like an exaggeration (because it is!), but I freely admit to sitting there open mouth watching Champions Day from Ascot and instantly identifying the ground as a lot softer than I had calculated for and, worse still, softer once again than …Read More »
