As those who listen to our Podcast will soon know, this weekend is possibly best described as the lull before the storm, a relatively unimportant part of racing history that is merely a poor quality starter (garlic mushrooms?) ahead of the main course that starts at Cheltenham next Tuesday. I …Read More »
I love my job! Trips to the handicap lunch, Jonjo O’Neill’s amazing yard, Nigel Twiston-Davies, all in two days!
Two out of three winners last week (poor prices I grant you – sorry), but Ron will not let me sit on my laurels and I have been out and about all week sorting out information for both Cheltenham and beyond. As you may have red in the last two …Read More »
Hello racing aficionados, and isn’t it just amazing how a sport of sunshine brings smiles all round, not to mention the possibility (make that probability) that all race meetings will go ahead as planned this Saturday for the first time in what feels like god knows how long – happy …Read More »
Apparently, I need to start this weeks ramblings with an apology as some people (well, one person) saw last week’s article as “condescending”, which is the absolute opposite of who I am as anyone who knows me will tell you – so if it read that way (and I can’t …Read More »
An outsider with no chance (because I tipped it), the proverbial good thing at Newbury – and a back to lay for the classics.
The boss is back so be warned, some of this article will no doubt end up as a repeat of our Podcast (now postponed so that’s alright then), though as I start writing, we haven’t recorded it yet and who knows what will come out in the wash once the …Read More »
Kept in the dark and fed BS, a new all-weather track just for Ron, and two hard to justify selections for Saturday

Free publicity but no free bets, is the Gold Cup winner in action Ron, and have the McCain yard finally seen the light?
The real beauty of this sport is that if you sit there long enough, something always comes along worth writing about, and this week we have the so called “Curley Conspiracy”, a wholesale gamble executed to perfection by somebody, and currently used by the bookmakers for unlimited publicity in every …Read More »
Well the rain in Spain may fall mainly on the plain but over here it seems to fall on the racecourses, and I am anything but convinced Ascot will get the go ahead tomorrow whatever they may claim. A trip to Lingfield Friday afternoon was abandoned once I saw how …Read More »
Farewell Fast French filly, welcome back Mr Post Racing, and smaller could be better for my selection?
I hate it when there is so little going on in the World of racing because it makes my life so difficult – what on earth am I supposed to write about lol? Luckily for me there is rarely a dull moment ion this game and I do feel the …Read More »
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 »
