Saturday 10th November

Right, I had intended to do more, but the change in going at Doncaster nearly caught me and I had to redo everything – hope I got it right. That didn’t leave much time for the Badger, but it doesn’t look as strong as last year. Fingers crossed that I’ve dome something right! Doncaster 15.15 Cl 2 Hca...

Saturday 3rd November

Didn’t do too badly last week and am back a little earlier than expected after being in hospital for minor surgery, so at least I’ve got an excuse this time round! Ascot 15.35 Gr 3 Hcap Chase 570 (149) 24f gd – 10 Run Last year – 570 (150) gd – 16 ran Go Conquer 7/1 8-11-0 (142) by 4.5l from Rock Go...

Saturday 27th October

A rather quick one this week as my heart’s not really in it for various reasons, but hopefully it will turn out somewhere close to the result as it will likely be the last for what I hope is only a short while.

Saturday 20th October

No luck last week, as for only the fourth time since 1989, a 5yo won; it had been 14 years since the last one! However, one of my pair ran well enough to make the frame, as did the one I feared most but discarded because he was a 5yo. This week’s race hasn’t been around as long, this only being the ...

Saturday 13th October

Broke the streak in fine style last week and while I had the first two in the wrong order I’ve long enough stopped being arrogant enough to believe I can pick a winner in one. With the size of today’s field though, I might need to take a whole bunch against the field, and even then not get it right....

Re: Saturday 6th October

Thanks Martin, a nice way to return to form. Maybe concentrating more of less is the way to go?????

Saturday 6th October

Well, that’s the way to do it – the first one I threw out last week was the winner! Just the one race thus week, as it’s taking me longer and longer to go through things and I’ve got less and less time to do it long hand. See how this comes out, but it is some time since I actually correctly identif...

Saturday 29th September

Just the one today, as the 35-runner Cambridgeshire has demanded all my attention and sapped all my energy today – age is catching up I guess. How it will go I don’t know, but I believe they’re offering up to eight places – and just to think, how generous we thought it was when they first offered fo...

Saturday 22nd September

After last week’s disaster, let’s hope things improve. However, with ground conditions as they are, that’s far from a given! Newbury 13.45 Cl 2 Hcap 467 (104) 10f gd/sf – 15 Run (14 at best) 3yo = 5lbs wfa allowance Last year – 467 (108) gd – 19 ran Brorocco 8/1 CoF 4-8-9 (89) Dr 13 by 1l from Fidaa...

Saturday 15th September

Right horses, wrong order last week, something that’s been happening far too often of late. As we have a sprint and an AW race today, I’m not sure how much improvement we can expect today, but fingers crossed we’ll get lucky. Doncaster 13.50 Cl 2 Hcap 374 (105) 5.5f gd/sf – 22 Run 3yo = 2lbs wfa all...
