(Blog Content Explained: to be updated  Read HERE>>>)



None on Sunday.

Happy with The Silver Trophy analysis/result and can hopefully build on it in the weeks ahead. Another good day in the comments from you good folk, hard to keep up on busy days mind! But Stewart’s 16s AP bet on Great White Shark did the business, Mike fired in another biggie in a big field handicap on the flat , Martin chipped in and Rick had a cracker of a day also – and no doubt a few other’s i’ve missed! Shrewdies everywhere.  The comments/engagement are the ‘budgie down the mine’ here and they’re back up to 25+ on busy days which is always a positive, and your musings are always appreciated. The ‘chat’ is what makes this place a bit different from elsewhere. (well, some of the content is a bit unique also!)

    1. Thanks Mark. Yep a positive start for that more focused/less is more approach, but only that. Still, something to build on! You too. Cheers.

      1. Yeah, fantastic write up Josh. The whole piece gave the feeling you had nailed that race completely, understanding the dangers correctly and the potential (and value of course!) of your picks. There were very few ifs and buts involved which makes life easier and easier for me to follow you in! I backed Tea Clipper with Sir Psycho as a saver rather than 1 pt each. Nice to see you back in the groove and all the best for the season ahead.

  1. I`ll quickly post up, then write ups tomorrow at some point.

  2. Josh thanks for your comments, Sat wasn’t my best day but still a 20/1 winner always help. I would like to thank Stewart for his GWS pick. I did back it AP at 16s.
    Sunday’s racing doesn’t float my boat and I have only 2 picks.

    Blairmayne 6/1

    Pettochside 14/1


  3. a pretty poor day for the list with 1 winner and 4 places.
    my pick CADILLAC definitely needs further. with winners coming from all angles from the RTP family and the big man upstairs showing us what he does best it wasnt a bad Saturday after all. 🙂
    todays c3+ video replay list
    14-55 elegant light / leafhopper / with thanks
    15-25 tawny port / amarillo star / the lamplighter
    16-25 goshen / natural history
    my picks
    ELEGANT LIGHT 11/1 country hopping 4yr old with descent form in the heavy stuff. was finishing well when the line came last time out and one can hope that a more prominent rife today may yield better results. there are some useful animals in here but this one is trued and tested in the sticky stuff.
    TAWNY PORT 9/1 solid aw form also has some pretty useful form on the turf in the sticky stuff and course and distance form been off the track for a while but could go well fresh.

    3 from my newton abbot multi sire angle 119run/21wins/41places +129.9
    14-15 god knows why 25/1
    17-20 fs lola 25/1

  4. After a couple of very hectic days finally have a bit of time to look at some racing , 4 picks £1.50 ew singles and a 10p ew L15, £15 staked.
    Goodwood 3-25. Tawny Port 12-1 4p

    Curragh 3-10. Fiscal Rules 9-1
    Curragh 3-40. Golden Spear 18-1 6p

    absolute disaster yesterday for some inexcusable reason i backed Flash Of Steel instead of Tea Clipper when doing Josh’s picks and after following all the comments about Great White forgot to back it.

  5. A 7/2 > 11/4 winner and a third from Saturdays dutching. I cannot believe the volume of non runners at jump meetings this week. We are going into winter and yet we have trainers pulling out lots of horses. The ground has not changed from previous years. The authorities need to discourage trainers from pulling out horses if the ground is not their optimal choice for the horse.

    Sundays ‘dutchers’,

    3.15 Newton Abbot – De Rasher Counter, who is back over hurdles now. He is down in class, his trainer and jockey have good course form, has won on this ground, has won in this class, has won at this distance. And Prabeni – a consistent performer, the trainer has good course form, has won on this ground, has won in this class, has won at this distance.

    Good luck Martin

    1. Maybe the dwindling prize money, rising costs and covid have twisted the arms of some trainers to only run horses when they have their best chances. Cost cutting for the yards on a financial tightrope. The mid week jumps racing is never too inspiring at the best of times though really.

    2. Hi Martin
      So a trainer should run their horse on any given going come what may, even if the clerk of the course as given misleading going information, the horse then recieves an injury, then the owner will be pulling their horse or horses from the stable, also the jockey takes it easy on the horse protecting it, and so the clowns/stewards step in and ban the jockey.

  6. Morning Josh, just read your John Francombe tweet, and it is fantastic at long last someone at the top of the horseracing table, has finally said what I have been saying for years regarding the finance of racing and bookmakers, will they take notice of course not! they would rather destroy the industry than make any changes

  7. Selection: 14.10 Curragh Miramis e/w @14/1.

    This ran in a G2 at the Curragh on 22nd August and was described as keeping on under a hands and heels ride on debut so in my opinion was given a sympathetic ride and not aske for any effort, finishing 6th behind the winner Pretty Gorgeous. The top two in the market Preamble and Lippi are very closely matched and offer no value having clocked 70.4 and 70.7 secs over 6f respectively. The actual distance of this race is 6.28 furlongs or 6f 63 yds….Miramis ran over 7f on soft on debut so should handle the ground and get the instance and drops to a G3 race from a Group 2 debut. Both the top two in the market are class horses but thought Miramis may have a bit more to offer having clocked the equivalent of 70.97 secs when adjusted for 6f and at the price was worth an each way punt….New Emerald Bay may also run well but will go with the selection above…… gd lck if deciding to play

    1. IMPORTANT regarding time of Miramis….should read 72.85 NOT 70.97……..New Emerald Bay = 73.28 Apologies a senior moment !!!
