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 »
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 »
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 »
Where is Noah, a better than expected race at Doncaster, and some Champagne on ice – until next March?
Forty days and forty nights of rain may sound like an exaggeration (because it is!), but I freely admit to sitting there open mouth watching Champions Day from Ascot and instantly identifying the ground as a lot softer than I had calculated for and, worse still, softer once again than …Read More »
I cannot believe that I am already writing a preview for the last day of Cheltenham – am I the only one who feels so empty after the last race is run and who struggles to get overly excited about the racing for the next week or so? Life goes …Read More »
Here we go with part one of a FIVE part “series” covering some of the top yards with big plans for the Cheltenham Festival. Yes they have already been rushed out by others but then that is the whole point – I have sat and waited, refused to over react, …Read More »
A well weighted Grand National option at 66/1, will the real Finian’s Rainbow please stand up, and a new kid on the block with the very best connections.
As I am sure you can imagine all the talk at the moment in the World of racing revolves around Cheltenham and in our case, how much publicity can we get for our charity campaigns thanks to the exploits of a certain “Madam” known to you and I as Rosie’s …Read More »
A child is born, my first ante post suggestion, and maths lessons with the International handicappers!
Here we are again after another week and Ron is still banging the going drum (and quite rightly so having looked through all his figures), though whether he is banging his head against a wall we will only know when or if he receives a reply from the BHA postmarked …Read More »
