  1. Becher Chase 2020

    I was just looking at the Becher Chase this Saturday. Looks competative with plenty of chances, although I am drawn to Smooth Stepper at this early stage. He won at big odds of 33/1 in the Haydock Grand National trial last season. I don't know if he was intended to run in the Grand National before it was abandoned, but anyway, he is quite old aged 11 so this could be his final season, but age didn't stop him at Haydock.

    That was probably his best run to date. He had future Cheltenham ...

  2. Champions Day at Ascot

    1.20 Stradavarius a worthy favorite but if ever he was vulnerable it might after a tilt at the Arc. If he can bounce back fair play to connections, but there is a freak in the field, and that freak is Sovereign. This one mullered our 2019 Derby winner in last seasons Irish Derby at the Curragh. Aidan O Brien said the horse was always talented but for whatever reason had not shown this on the racetrack. I've a feeling that this Saturday could be a day where Sovereign will put its best foot forward ...

    Tranchee won nicely the last day at Doncaster so is coming in here in top form, and his second placing to River Nymph, with Owen Burrows future winner Danyah back in third reads really well.

    Tranchee was only receiving 1lb

  4. Tote Challenge Cup this Saturday

    Revich was unfancied at 25/1 the last day when 5th of 16 runners at this track Ascot behind Documenting. He was only beaten a length and three quarters, it looked like an encouraging run before a bigger race like this one coming up on Saturday.

    He's been much better this season, with two consecutive wins in first time visors before his last run. I'm tempted to call him a 'curve horse' but I won't pinch Desert Orchids phrases without giving him credit beforehand. Anyways, Revich I'm ...
  5. 2020 Arc

    It must be Love versus Enable that has the racing community talking about this continents greatest middle distance event.

    The former is a dual english classic winner, the latter a two time arc winner, only beaten by Waldgeist, who was a horse that saved the best until last in his career in last years renewal, when pouncing late to deny Enable.

    Truth be told that it's probably too close to call. Frankie will need to eat up all the spinach he can. Love won the Oaks with ...
