Saturday 16th March

Finally found some educated horses last week that could read the script, well nor quite perfectly as Martin did point out! Hope you all had a decent Cheltenham, I did miss it, but unfortunately had no option. Just the one race today, as the Kempton chase I looked at had far more questions than answe...

Saturday 9th March

Well the streak continues, so I thought I’d look at two races today, including one of those strange ones where there are no obstacles to jump – flat races I think they call them! Sadly, I shall be missing Cheltenham completely this year as time no longer permits even the quickest of scans. So good l...

Saturday 2nd March

Thanks Martin, but dengue fever takes longer to really get over each time you get it - only my second time in 40 years, but still. Just the one race this week as I’m getting tired of expending so much energy for so little return – I’m also increasingly at a loss to understand how many of the winners...

Saturday 2nd February

Well managed to get one race about right last week; sadly, it wasn’t the one I had targeted! This week looks even worse, as I’ve found one race where I can’t even find a selection, while the other is a hurdle race that looks fraught with problems too. So fingers crossed that one of them manages to m...

Saturday 26th January

After last week I think I’d better leave any race in which Wakanda is entered – just can’t get it right! Ironic though, as the one race I got right was the hurdle that I fancied least! That won’t happen this week though as I’ve looked at a couple of chases – much preferred to hurdles. The Cheltenham...

Still searching for this year’s first winner, but then some months go like that! Taken a three-pronged approach today, although my main concentration was on the Peter Marsh at Haydock. Finger definitely crossed! Ascot 14.25 Gr 3 Hcap Hurdle 285 (147) 19.5f gd/sf – 10 Run Last year – 285 (147) sf – 1...

Not doing at all well this year, but at least we’ve got a couple of decent races to look at today, so let’s hope my luck changes! Kempton 14.40 Listed Hcap Hurdle 256 (134) 21f gd – 15 Run (14 at best) Last year – 256 (145) sf – 16 ran William Henry 7/1 8-11-12 (145) by 0.75l from Spiritofthegames 1...

Saturday 5th January

Strange Saturday racing of late with the quality more befitting midweek than the pride of the weekend. This is hardly a race that I would normally have picked out, but not much option today I’m afraid. Let’s hope it’s better next week! Sandown 15.00 Cl 2 Hcap Chase 619 (144) 24f gd/sf – 17 Run Last ...

Tuesday 1st January

Happy New Year to all and let’s hope 2019 will bring better fortune than 2018 did! At least a decent meeting to greet the New Year at Cheltenham, so fingers crossed my picks do better than those over the weekend did! Cheltenham 12.50 Cl 2 Hcap Chase 155 (146) 26.5f gd/sf – 10 Run Last year – 156 (14...
