Victor’s Monday Musings

Morning all,

Tizzard Walking in a Newbury Wonderland

What a Saturday for trainer Colin Tizzard with a Newbury treble courtesy of Thistlecrack, Ultragold and of course taking the day’s big horse race the Hennessey Gold Cup, with Native River, which sadly is likely to be the last race to be run as the Hennessey Gold Cup with the owners of the brand looking to end their sponsorship of this historic handicap chase. Such a decision will bring to an end British horse racing’s longest commercial sponsorship.

Back to the ‘Hennessey” itself what a finish it was as Native River clung on to hold the strong finishing Carole’s Destrier at the line. Always up with the pace as expected he took up the running five from home and although he looked like he might be vulnerable when headed three out, he was back in the lead two out and from then on wasn’t for catching, he was slightly idling on the run in but he found enough for a worthy win under super ride by Richard Johnson who was actually winning his first Hennessey and most likely his last if the sponsorship news proves correct. He deserves to look toward the Cheltenham Gold Cup now and who knows he could be part of a Tizzard 123 at the Festival come March.Continue Reading


Victor’s Monday Musings

This is the first of what will be a regular column, “Victor’s Monday Musings”, as I take over the Monday ‘hot seat’ from Dave Massey! (David will still be in his new regular slot from Tuesday to Saturday)

What can you look forward to in my “Monday Musings”? Well, it will be in two parts. In the first part; I will look back at the weekend’s big race action, highlighting the performance of the day and also see if there are any other horses that you should be adding to your trackers and could provide possible ante post betting opportunities for you. The second part will examine some key stats that you should have on your side over the coming months. However, this week rather than look at the weekend’s best performance’s, hard to pick between Cue Card and Sire de Grugy for me, I thought it would be useful if I gave you a little bit of background on myself:

I first got the horse racing and betting bug about 30 years ago and my hobby became a passion and then after a number of reasonably profitable years of betting I decided to take the plunge and in 2011, my hobby became a business as I became a full time professional punter and racing pundit with my own service Victor Value Racing. I tend to concentrate on the better quality races and love to solve the puzzles provided by those big field handicaps, whether on the flat or over jumps. I have also got more and more involved in using stats, especially trainer stats, in my everyday betting. Hence why there will be a section each week looking at some key stats.Continue Reading


Saturday Racing

Good morning all,

It’s a ridiculously early start for me as Daren has decided to stand at Ascot today (under the Stevie Stretch banner, if you’re going and want a bet with us) and the near three-hour journey means it’ll be dark as we set off, and dark as we come back. The bit in-between will be the fun part, although I’m wrapping up as the forecast is cold!

I haven’t changed my mind about the big races this week, which were covered off on the early look on Tuesday – if you missed it, and although the price on Lil Rockerfeller has drifted a bit, we are on three places, giving us a decent chance of a return. Similarly, Seeyouatmidnight has a great chance now the rain has come (and then some) and again, ante-post, we’re on three places.

Here’s my picks for some of the other Saturday races. Continue Reading


Champions Day

Good morning all,

With small fields still being the order of the day over the jumps, I’ve decided to put together the guide for Ascot this afternoon instead. Possibly the most interesting race of the day is the closing Balmoral Handicap at 4.25, at least from my punting view, but it’s a card full of quality and one to be enjoyed by all. There’s four of the six races covered below.

Just to say, next week I’m on the road all week, starting at Plumpton on Monday, so will have plenty to report back on as the week progresses. Cheltenham is finally in sight!Continue Reading
