With all due respect to the greatest flat racing meeting in the World bar none, please forgive a slightly muted, even shortened review of the final day as I finally stir from my pit after five days of 24/7 work for us poor much maligned racing hacks! As an old …Read More »
Well we didn’t do quite so badly yesterday though I only hope you took the freely available 5/1 about The New One early in the morning, 7/2 SP was a tad skinny considering he wasn’t even the favourite? Buddy Bolero ran a blinder in fourth in the National Hunt Chase …Read More »
I do believe I have negotiated a bit of extra leeway from Boss Ron regarding my scribblings this week as I have been running around from pillar to post interviewing various trainers ahead of some small Cheltenham articles for you, Post Racing readers. Before you ask, they ARE the same …Read More »
A well weighted Grand National option at 66/1, will the real Finian’s Rainbow please stand up, and a new kid on the block with the very best connections.

You have to love Ron and the rest of the Post Racing gang, as they seem intent on giving me most of my subject matter each and every week – thank you Ron! I was one of the lucky ones in attendance at Wolverhampton on Monday afternoon where we greeted …Read More »
An invitation to join the friendliest, most original and successful racing club in Britain today….and all for less than the price of half a Costa cappuccino per day!
