Saturday 13th July

Well last week finished much as I expected and today may be the same as we’re into the tricky handicaps stage of the season. So fingers crossed and anything that makes the frame is welcome! Newmarket 15.30 Cl 2 Hcap 747 (97.2) 7f gd/fm – 20 Run (19 at best) Last year – 747 (99.3) gd/fm – 18 ran Burn...

Saturday 6th July

Back to old habits again yesterday picking them in the wrong order, but I wasn’t the only one seduced by Elector’s promise as it ended up as favourite. No harm done in the end with Jazeel winning, but annoying. Different matter today though with a pair of tough handicaps to try and crack. I hope I’v...

Friday 5th July

Thanks Martin, wasn’t too unhappy with last Saturday’s effort even though my second choice just failed to hang on – don’t ask me about my first choice though! Still, I was right about the pair at the front of the market, which gave me some satisfaction. And I did manage to find a winner on the day, ...

Saturday 29th June

Back to old habits midweek when picking them in reverse order, not that it matters when taking two against the field or a twist forecast. Had grand ambitions for today, but having waded through the Plate and the 7f hcap there, nothing really stood out in York’s trappy sprint, while Chester’s 7f hcap...

Wednesday 26th June

Well no credit for picking the winner on Saturday, although I wouldn’t have been backing it at 7/2 in a field that size. See if the recent change of fortune holds up at Salisbury, not a course I often patronise, Salisbury 15.50 Cl 2 Hcap 124 (90.3) 8f gd/fm – 10 Run 3yo = 10lbs wfa allowance Last ye...

Saturday 22nd June

Yes, Martin, things went very well yesterday. However, I’m afraid this is only a token effort today as big field sprints are not really my forte and several years have passed since I was lucky enough to find the winner of the Wokingham. At least I managed a winner at Ascot this year. Had hoped to lo...

Thanks Martin, I was very satisfied with the Hunt Cup analysis and had hoped to give this a better look than I’ve had time for. Still it’s worth a go as it is Ascot after all. Ascot 17.35 Cl 2 Hcap 560 (101.0) 12f gd/sf – 19 Run Last year – 560 (99.6) gd/fm – 17 ran Dash Of Spice 7/2 F 4-9-3 (98) Dr...

The experiment is over, as while I did manage to get the first two home on Sunday, they were in the wrong order. So it’s back to further experiments with my old methodology and the Hunt Cup takes centre stage today. Wish us all luck! Ascot 17.00 Cl 2 Hcap 1089 (102.6) 8f gd – 30 Run Last year – Cl 2...

Sunday 16th June

Wasn’t going to bother today after yesterday’s expected disaster, but I then thought there is perhaps a chance to get a winner in before next week’s period of famine. In fact my selection today appears to meet all the criteria quoted in the letters, well at least as far as I can understand – althoug...

Saturday 15th June

Fortunately I’ve not had chance to look at things since Monday and the way things have gone this past couple of months, perhaps I had better stick to looking for short priced favourites on a Monday. Today is Saturday though, indeed the last Saturday before the annual blood-letting exercise called Ro...
