We are still seeing some very silly results and all the talk of managers losing their jobs already is doing my head in. Right now only one team is unbeaten in the league, Leicester and nobody has settled in to a normal game yet. I certainly didn’t really want to …Read More »
One of the many things I love about this sport is the never ending merry-go-round of stories that tickle my fancy and sit there almost crying out for me to at least make some kind of comment to my loyal readers, wherever they are. This week I feel the need …Read More »
If there is a trainer in better form than Harry Fry, with whom Post Racing 500 Club members have the pleasure of going racing with four horses this season, I cannot find him/her. In the last 14 days Harry, prior to today, had saddled 10 runners and not a single …Read More »
UK 2-0 Hong Kong as far as last week’s bets were concerned with two out of two winners at Cheltenham and naught out of two winners in Hong Kong but I’ll settle for that even if the winners were so well backed the prices ended up on the silly side. …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 »
Free publicity but no free bets, is the Gold Cup winner in action Ron, and have the McCain yard finally seen the light?
