Friday Round-Up

Good morning all,

Plenty on today as I’ll be doing the Bangor comments for the Sporting Life tomorrow, so waiting for the final decs to come out at 10.30. Then I’ve got the Downpatrick card on Sunday as well, so I’ll be cracking on with that afterwards!

Plans for Garthorpe tomorrow have been shelved as I’m staying down South for another day but I may go to Newbury tomorrow if time allows instead.

Today, a review of some interesting races I’ve seen on the smaller tracks over the past few days, plus one of my Cheltenham Horses to Follow. The rest will be in this month’s Betting Insiders.

More Cheltenham Bits & Pieces

Good morning all,

Back after the gremlins got into the system yesterday but all seems to be working fine now.

Warwick was wet, wet, wet, as demonstrated by the fact that only 2 finished the handicap chase that closed the card but sadly Emma Soda (despite Dave Crosse gatecrashing the box and telling folk it would go close) looks a bit of a shadow of herself and not even her best conditions yesterday could persuade her to return to form.

Today, a few more Cheltenham reflections and today’s selection at the end.Continue Reading


Good morning all,

Looks a rainy day in store for me at Warwick and that’s only going to make things even trickier as I expect the ground to change pretty quickly once racing gets underway. With that in mind, I’m playing it as soft ground rather than the good to soft that’s advertised at present.

I’ve also picked a box up today – a rarity! – so the good people of Executive Hire (they sponsor two races on the card) will be expecting a winner or two. My preview of two races on the card in on the main piece.

2.20 – Executive Hire Show Maiden Hurdle (2m5f)

None of the ones at the front at the market are cast-iron, it seems they all have something to prove.

Oscars Boss was a huge disappointment at Plumpton – punters couldn’t shovel the money on quick enough, backed from 4-7 to 1-4 but he couldn’t rope in The Caller in the closing stages and in truth, never looked like doing so either. It’s hard to find an excuse as the ground shouldn’t have been an issue, and the jury is out now.Continue Reading

Things I (Think) I Learnt From Cheltenham

Good morning all,

Back to the bread and butter stuff this week, and I’ll be working at Southwell today. Then onto Warwick tomorrow before two days down South to collate all the Cheltenham stuff. (Weirdly, I work so much better at my good lady’s house than I do at mine. Less distractions, I suppose!) Then possibly Garthorpe point on Saturday. So another busy week coming up.

To start the post-Cheltenham ball rolling, here’s 5 things I took away from Cheltenham this year. Plus today’s selection at the end. Continue Reading
