  1. Champions Day Ascot 2021

    I remember Royal Ascot this year I believe it was me and maybe forum member Reet Hard who put Dubai Honour up for a big handicap where he stayed on well at the finish to get a place. He's improved again in group races in France upped in distance so I'd like to see him go one step further although it will tough.

    I also think Haggas has a live chance in the shape of Hamish in the opener. He beat a good horse in Hukum the last day and although Hukum wasn't at his best, you'd still have ...

  2. Chepstow part two

    1:15 Magistrato won this with any amount in hand and itíll be interesting to watch developments.

    1:50 Last term Allmankind came third in a pipe opener hurdle run before taking a chase a couple of weeks later. Looks like the same pattern being played out this time round.

    2:25 It was a good run by the winner Chirico Vallis at 16/1 although he had been 40s earlier so not entirely unexpected. Although the rest were miles behind he couldnít shake off Kittyís Light who snapped ...
  3. Jumps, Jumps, Jumps - Chepstow part one.

    Oh, itís good to have jumping back - sorry Reet - with Chepstow. Already been some decent horses on show and some promising runs.

    1:00 Knappers Hill. Paul Nicholls likes to start off one of his good ones here and Knappers Hill didnít disappoint, although he didnít win by as much as youíd expect from a 2/13 shot. Had plenty in hand though. Nicholls thinks he needs experience and says heís off to Wincanton 6 November next.

    1:35 Does He Know has been a ...
  4. Newmarket - 3

    W3last yesterday.

    Money came for Spinaround so he became a viable bet - not for me, though, since I was settling down to watch the Ryder Cup (what a dreadful first day and itís difficult to see them coming back from it). Didnít back Fooraat because of the overnight weakness which didnít strengthen. Left with Domino Darling who came a thumping last

    Only tracker today is Naval Commander in the Cambridgeshire, but at 80/1 a forlorn hope so Iíll just settle down ...
  5. Newmarket - 2

    232 yesterday - good job only fun bets.

    Three trackers again today:

    Spinaround 1:15 - showed a lot of promise in runs to date, but up against a heavy odds on job and itís his ďget my handicapĒ run. No go.

    Floorat 1:50 - got involved in a barging match last time at York which knocked her off balance, but only went down by two short heads. Would likely have won otherwise. Quite keen on her, but drifted a bit over night which is not good news. Will keep ...
