Saturday’s Racing

I am up Liverpool for the weekend, going to watch the Reds get dominated by Andy Carol 🙂 and then I plan to win all my friends money in a game of poker! Anyway, while I have just had a quick flick through the racing I haven’t looked in enough depth to justify advising you […]

Pace Wins The Race: 29/01/15

UPDATE  Well I must admit a slightly disappointing day. I was hoping for two winners but at least I managed to register one. Luv U Forever was far too big at 10/3 last night/this morning and eventually returned at 6/4. That was as good as it got. The two selections from Wincanton were disappointing and […]

The Cheltenham Festival

I have been meaning to write this post for a little while and I thank those who have prodded me in comments on previous blog posts. Firstly there are NO bets in this post. So if you are looking for any ‘tips’ or ante-post picks you will not find them here, not yet anyway. The aim […]

Some Bets/ramblings For Monday

UPDATE Well Evan Williams didnt have a very good day, and therefore neither did I. I back the ‘long distance jockey’ selections systematically so no damage there long term. I threw a £5va at each of the others who were rather poor and never in their races. Cruising Bye ran as Cruising Bye does, placing again […]

Pace Wins The Race: 23/01/15 NO BET

Well today’s Pace selection was poor and as you will read in the update on the post I deserved it really. I think I am starting to struggle mentally with these posts if truth be told. I dare say that is the lack of winners/long losing run talking. Anyway, there will be no Pace Selection […]

Pace Wins The Race: 30/01/15

A 1.33 point profit on the day was a bit less than I had hoped for from the three selections. The two I was most confident in were the most disappointing but that is racing for you. (they both looked to be hating the boggy ground and faded tamely) All of them shortened in the […]

Pace Wins The Race: 28/01/14

UPDATE Well that run rather sums up the shocker of a run I have been on with Pace ‘doesnt’ win The Race. An iffy start, then into the lead and looking ok, but then niggled, never jumping, never travelling and tailing off rather miserably. That sums up the last few weeks for this ‘daily’ piece. […]

Tuesday 26/01/15

Well Tuesday’s racing looks as poor as Monday’s and clearly there must be some big festival or something looming on the horizon! There is nothing that stands out from a ‘pace’ perspective at all really, let alone in races I would want to play in. The 4pm Taunton is the most interesting race of the […]

Saturday: Big Race Previews

UPDATE Well we ended up with a 1.5 point deficit and it was one of those days where my judgement was generally good but for one reason or another I couldn’t back what I thought were the most likely winners. First things first, Night In Milan ran his usual gallant race, no complaints there. Grandads […]

Big Race Preview + profitable trainer angle

UPDATE Well we got a decent run for our money and that was about it. The Job Is Right would have held on for a gallant second had he not unseated at the last. Sadler’sFlaure ran well for a long way and as they entered the gloom he had a few lengths in hand. As […]
