A Long Journey Home…..

Good morning all,

We drove to Lingfield full of high expectation and hope yesterday but the drive back, which seemingly took forever, was one long post-mortem as to what had gone wrong with Coole Charmer.

A dreadful effort, which none of us expected after Bangor, can only be explained away by saying it was something physical, which we will know about later on today. Because if it wasn’t that, we could be left scratching our heads a bit. He was beaten after two fences, one of which he jumped so badly out to his left he was almost on the hurdles course. Hopefully something will show up this morning to explain such a poor effort.

Naranja ran well enough considering Nick Schofield got off after and said how she absolutely hated the ground, so connections won’t be running her on what was really holding, tacky ground again. She’s capable of better and I’ll still be following her this season.

Today, two more races reviewed – one from Doncaster Monday, one from Lingfield yesterday, plus today’s selection. Continue Reading

The Charmer Goes Again

Good morning all,

After working in the betting rings for the last few weeks and not actually getting to see much action, it was good to get back to paddock watching at Doncaster yesterday and there’s a couple of races reviewed on the main email. There’s going to be quite a few reviews this week as it’s Lingfield today, quite possibly Hereford tomorrow, Leicester on Thursday and Huntingdon on Friday. Then back in the ring at Warwick Saturday. No rest for the wicked!

We’re off to Lingfield today – I say we, that’s me and the racing wife, Becky (every racing man should have one) to see how Coole Charmer gets on in his second handicap. My thoughts on that, plus those Doncaster races (with a couple for your trackers) on the main piece.

Victor’s Monday Musings

Saturday saw some great racing from Sandown, with the feature race on the day being the Tolworth Hurdle, more on that in a bit. But the race I enjoyed most was the Veterans Chase Series Final.

The introduction of this series of races during the year for these grand old staying chasers has been a great success and I think it’s one that has been embraced by race-goers. A field of 16 went to post for the race which goes to show how popular the concept has been with trainers and owners as well as racing fans.Continue Reading

Sandown Saturday

Good morning all,

Off to Sandown shortly to work in Tatts for the day, so hoping the worst of the weather has already passed.

It’s going to be pretty testing there today after 6mm of rain overnight, and I’d expect a few non-runners before racetime.

Wincanton also stage a televised fixture this afternoon and it’s to be hoped the fog doesn’t descend too badly – we don’t want another Haydock-like fiasco from a few weeks ago.

My thoughts on today’s TV races on the main piece. Continue Reading
