Another Super Saturday

Good morning all,

Loads of quality racing to get stuck into today, and every chance we will get some more clues for the Festival next month.

Ascot, Haydock and Wincanton are all on the new ITV racing this afternoon (which I’m rather enjoying, I have to say) and I’ve tried to sift out a winner or two from it all. Hard day ahead though!

Here’s the preview – best of luck! Continue Reading

Grand National First Look

Good morning all,

Well, I’m a bit annoyed with myself for half-deserting Crosspark yesterday. I did have a small saver on him but I should have known to stick with him, given he was one of my ten to follow for the year. Now he’s won one, I think he can win another, particularly if stepped up in trip slightly.

Back Up North

Good morning all,

Had a lovely couple of days down South but it’s time for me to head back to the Midlands shortly as the rest of the week has a lot of writing involved in it. I’ll be doing the Leicester and Fakenham cards for the Sporting Life website and I’ll post the links on here so you can have a read, and I also need to start getting some Cheltenham articles down in readiness for next month.

Today there’s a review of Fontwell yesterday, including one that I liked that came as a massive surprise, plus today’s selection too.
