For busy punters a good source of reliable tips is a way to compensate for lack of time

Soggy Saturday

Good morning all,

Still some rain around this morning but that won't stop me from going and working somewhere today – it'll either be Lingfield tonight or Market Rasen this afternoon. You get no prizes for guessing which one I'd rather go to.

In fact, I've done the whole Rasen card comments for the Sporting Life today – and as ever, having to do them yesterday when you've no idea of how much rain is about to fall proved quite challenging. If you feel so inclined, the card is here –'-hurdle

Good morning all,

The second part of my article of jumps trainers currently finding life hard on the main piece, and if you haven't, I would advise you to go and have a quick read of Phil's comment on yesterday's piece as he makes a couple of very relevant points.

I would say that, despite the virus that seemed to spread throughout Newmarket last year, that trainers do try and cope with it in different ways – some go for the complete shutdown of operations to try and find the cause but I do know of at least one yard that had the virus with some of their horses but continued on – they simply found the sick horses, quarantined them away from the healthy ones and as a result, had a really good spell of winners. So even when you know there's a sickness in a yard, it doesn't mean they can't have winners. But I agree with Phil, you should be able to find out when a trainer has sick horses rather than having to try and work it out for yourself, and then you can make your own judgements. Continue Reading

It’s A Struggle

Good morning all,

Quick post this morning as the electric has been off after last night's thunderstorms and I've not had much chance to look at anything so far today. Apologies for the brevity of it.

I had started an article about trainers that seem to find it a struggle at the moment in the jumping field, I'll post the first couple and then hopefully finish it off later today.
