We now know that 12 go to post for the Champion Hurdle on Tuesday and knowing what lines up now I thought I’d take another look at Yanworth. Is he a play, or a lay? The plain fact is, I’m seeing more negatives than positives. Firstly, the only jockey to …Read More »
Once the meeting at Kempton concludes on Saturday afternoon, that’s it. We’ll get no more Cheltenham clues and so I’ll set to work on several things. Firstly, I’ll identify “the one”. That is the name of the horse I hope will cover our expenses for the entire week. I’m pretty …Read More »
Racing Post are having a laugh (or is there a Mullins Monopoly), and one for the all-weather just for Ron!
When Ron and I recorded the Podcast this afternoon (Friday), I did promise a passing mention for the Cheltenham Festival Bumper and having seen the nonsense on the Racing Post website I simply cannot resist. Now I do decry my journalistic colleagues, and I am as aware as anyone that …Read More »
Much as I love this sport and appreciate fully how lucky I am to do this for a living, I am also a journalist and feel duty bound to say a word for my French colleagues at Charlie Hebdo who were more talented and funnier than I could ever dream …Read More »

Arena cough up at last, and why I love the Dubai World Cup – even if I am in the minority (apparently)
Not a great deal to talk about this week I am sort of glad to say with bad news often the order of the day in the racing press, with the inking of the ARC (Arena Racing Company) deal number one as far as good news is concerned. Everyone seems …Read More »
To no-ones great surprise it has been a busy week, though I have to say Ron and I had a blast doing the podcast with an honourable draw the result in my mind, with Ron’s winners stacked up against my each way places at decent prices – a profitable Cheltenham …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 »
