For busy punters a good source of reliable tips is a way to compensate for lack of time

The Long Weekend

Good morning all,

The start of the last Bank Holiday Weekend before Christmas (there’s a frightening thought) sees plenty of racing across the country and although thunderstorms will be moving in later on today, it hopefully won’t spoil our enjoyment of what promises to be an interesting day’s racing.

As now tends to be the case on a Saturday, I had a root through the TV races yesterday and came up with a guide for the majority of today’s action at Beverley, Newmarket and Goodwood. Here’s hoping for a few winners.

An Early Season Treat

Good morning all,

An unexpected early-season bonus awaits us Jumps fans today as Shantou Village, who went off favourite for the Albert Bartlett Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival last year, makes his reappearance over fences at Fontwell later on. I shall be driving down to have a look at him and one or two others on the card although I have to say it looks a bit tricky for punting purposes.

I was really taken with Shantou Village last November when he took a field apart at Cheltenham, beating the useful Champers On Ice 15l with the minimum of effort, and he probably bettered that when second to the high-class Yanworth next time out. There’s every chance he will make the grade over fences as he really looks built for the job and I’d love to see him progress through the ranks again this year.

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
