The Deelyboppers Are On….

Good morning all,

Yes, it’s 80’s night at Stratford tonight, and the era of the Rubik’s Cube, shoulder pads and the Miners Strike will be brought back in all it’s glory after the last tonight, although I doubt very much that Arthur Scargill will be part of the proceedings in any way. There’s 2 tribute acts on too – I’m hoping one of them is a Smiths tribute act, although somehow I doubt it.

Yesterday’s main selection, Classi Massini, sadly couldn’t show her form and there was clearly an issue there. She went from going fine to emptying in ten strides and something physically stopped her from carrying out her effort. The rider reported she “ran flat” but I’d be surprised if they don’t find something in the next day or two.

Speaking of Southwell, here’s a little anecdote from yesterday that just shows how little grasp some people have of odds…..

Back Over The Sticks

Good morning all,

We set the week off on the right foot yesterday with the main selection, Nag’s Wag, winning at 7-2 but those who played yesterday morning will have been rewarded with much bigger odds – there was plenty of 10-1 around at the time of posting – and it was nice to be on the right side of what turned out to be a bit of a gamble.

The e/w double went West, but never mind, still a good start to the week.

It’s back over the jumps for me today with a local trip to Southwell, and as I’ll be doing the Punters Panel there I’ve had a good look at the card and come up with a couple of bets. Continue Reading

The Sound Of….Seagulls

Good morning all,

The start of what looks a busy old week coming up for me, with fixtures both North and South that I’ll be attending. And the first of those comes today, as I awake to the sound of (hungry, I’m guessing) seagulls at half past six this morning on Hove’s seafront, as I’m off to the second day of Brighton’s August fixture.

Brighton, much like Fakenham, is one of those tracks you have to visit at least once in your racing life, despite being well out of your way. I first visited here a couple of years ago and rather fell in love with the place, for some inexplicable reason, and try to come here at least once a year.

Saturday TV Guide

Good morning all,

It’s been a most enjoyable week at York with the bookmakers taking a battering for the last two days, and the stories I’m hearing this morning suggest one or two of them have had enough and are off to Chester instead! Easier to make a few quid there from the Saturday crowd than trying to battle it out at the Knavesmire – especially when the fancied horses are continually going in!

Anyway, today, as promised, here’s my Saturday TV Guide, hopefully with a few winners in there.
