Saturday 19th January

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...

Saturday 12th January

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!

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...

Sunday 30th December

Was literally never at the races yesterday, even with the preferred chase. Still, can’t get greedy! Surprised to find a Cl 2 HCh today, not that it’s the best I’ve ever seen. Still, here’s my picks and hope for a change of luck. Haydock 14.00 Cl 2 Hcap Chase 156 (141) 27.5f sf – 10 Runners Last year...

Saturday 29th December

Although not that great a price, I was pleased to snare the Welsh National winner, but there’s no racing of that class to be found today I’m afraid. So, with hospital visiting hours calling, I’ll just drop these couple of races off. Newbury 13.50 Cl2 Hcap Hurdle 113 (144) 20.5f gd/sf – 8 Run Last ye...

Thursday 27th December

Nice to get lucky yesterday, though once more I got the final pair in the wrong order. Today offers a much tougher challenge, but the fact that the ground is reported as being soft rather than heavy should give the younger and higher weighted horses a better chance. Again, circumstances demand and e...

Wednesday 26th December

Due to other commitments I’m posting this early, so no time to recheck going or non-runners. Whether I’ll be available tomorrow depends a lot on today, but I hope so. Hope you all had a great Christmas and that we get a bit of luck today. Wetherby 14.10 Gr 3 Hcap Chase 256 (149) 24f sf – 8 Run Last ...

Saturday 22nd December

Finally broke the jinx last week, although more by good luck than good judgement as I honestly thought the weight would beat him. Just the one today I’m afraid – I did have a quick look at the Tommy Whittle too, but outside of Kimberlite Candy and sharp Response there’s not a lot of current form abo...

Saturday 15th December

Just the one race today, which in all honesty is about much as I can manage nowadays – probably just as well with the string of losers I’m churning out! Let’s hope things turn out better today and at least one of the pair makes the frame. Cheltenham 13.55 Gr 3 Hcap Chase 740 (164) 20.5f gd – 15 Run ...
