Cue Card

Morning all,

As I am writing this it’s just 22 days until the tapes go up on the Supreme Novices Hurdle on the 14th March. For those of you who have been to the Festival I am sure like me you have had the hair’s stand up on the back of your neck as you hear the Cheltenham roar at the start of the worlds best Horse Racing Festival. Well last weekend was the last big opportunity for trainers to give their potential Cheltenham horses a prep run before next month's extravaganza.

In this column and in ‘Match of the Day’ style I am going to give you two good and two bad or indeed ugly performances from the weekend just gone. I also have one horse from last week’s racing for your trackers. As ever there will be a Monday selection from Stat Corner and I will also take a quick glance at the big race of next weekend, the 4m Eider Chase at Newcastle.Read More »Cue Card

Good Morning all,

Some top class racing this weekend at Newbury on Saturday and Leopardstown on Sunday.

I will have a look at some notable performances from the Newbury card in this week’s column and also give you one for the tracker that meeting.

Last but not least, I will attempt to follow up last weeks 3rd place effort by Dutch Canyon at 20/1, with this week’s selection from stats corner and also have a quick peek at next Saturday’s big betting race the Betfred Grand National Trial at Haydock.Read More »Marshgate Lane

Scottish Trials Weekend: A Poor Guide to Cheltenham

This weekend’s horse racing may not have had the pathos of last one or the indeed the quality but there was some good action at Sandown and at Musselburgh who were hosting their two day Scottish Trials meeting. It’s the first time the meeting has been held over two days and you can hardly say the quality of the meeting has improved for it although the first running of the Edinburgh National over 4m 1f so a good field entered. Some have marketed the fixture as a good guide for Cheltenham next month but its more hype over substance. If the past is any guide I doubt any of the runners in the “Trials” races will go onto win a race at the Festival. Those thoughts are also borne out by the stats. In the past five years those horses having run at this meeting and gone on to run there next race at the festival are:

1 winner from 64 runners 2% -47 A/E 0.27 9 placed 14%Read More »Victor’s Monday Musings
