Having A Quiet Weekend

Good morning all,

Have decided that, the form I’m in this week, going to Newbury is not a good idea so I’m going to sit most of today out and just have a couple of small bets at Bangor and a “fun” Lucky 15 on the TV races at Newbury.

We all hit runs where you can do no right for doing wrong, and after Malapie’s poor showing yesterday, a horse I thought was genuinely well in, it’s time to have a quiet weekend and get ready for next week.

Have covered 3 of the TV races from Newbury on the main piece but I’ve also done the comments for Bangor on the Sporting Life website this morning, so feel free to have a look if you’re so inclined.

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.

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