The rain keeps falling as I sit here hunched over my laptop like some modern day punting Quasimodo character, and I am very wary of what, if any racing we will be provided with over the weekend, with Wincanton surely on a bit of a knife edge if the weather …Read More »
New Years Day extra Well Ron is still in hospital with all those nurses (I’ve ben watching the “Carry on” films over Christmas, no wonder he wont leave), so I thought I ought to add in a little extra for the very start of 2014, though having seen both the …Read More »
Well Ron is feeling chirpier if his short but sweet message yesterday was anything to go by and I can only say I wish I had listened to his stats advice regarding the Welsh National. As those who listened to our podcast will know I don’t really hold with stats …Read More »
Happy New year – with excuses for Boxing Day (gulp), a new horse to follow, and two with chances on Saturday!
A few days race free left me cold turkey over Christmas (pun intended), but we are back to something near to normal with the Welsh National to come and daily action back on the menu. First things first and have you ever seen a horse bottom out as quickly as …Read More »
Happy Christmas one and all – oh and a Boxing Day placepot article for fun purposes for us all at Kempton.
Boxing Day extra – read all about it! With Ron still AWOL I felt it best to try a little something for Boxing Day – after all, three days without racing will be cold turkey for most of us and I need a fix of horses, win or lose. The …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 »
