TIPS  1.25 Newbury  Belmount – 1 point win – 6/1 (general)  On paper this looks a trappy race but I thought 6s was more than fair for this one. Arguably he competed in a stronger race than this LTO at the track and he ran ok in 3rd. He was held up that day and […]

UPDATE:  Last two days tips: 2/7 = +14.55 points  Tips/Big Race Previews: +41.05 points (since start Oct) The Last Samuri’s stamina won the day at Kempton and he looks a lovely chaser in the making.

  UPDATE: racing is a strange and wonderful game at the best of times, with some results a mystery – or more to the point horses running in a way you didnt expect. Loughalder was well backed into 3/1 and I don’t know what went wrong. He did nearly lose his back-end when crossing one […]

TIPS 2.00 Haydock Harry The Viking – 1 pt EW – 8/1 (general) 2nd 11/1 Heavy ground at Haydock is usually hard work with runners strung out all over the North West. I don’t want to be guessing in this race as to whether the horse will stay and/or like the ground. There are only […]

The micro systems continued to tick along with an easy 5/2 winner and a decent 6/1 second – he looked like winning at one point and I am not sure if Tom Scu went too soon or he just ran out of puff a bit near the end, which would be no surprise given his […]
