A winner and a non runner in my last article so all to fight for this week, but before that there has been so much going on in the world of racing that I have resorted to making notes to make sure I keep on top of things! Last Sunday …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 »
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!

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 »
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 »
