I am getting fed up of losing in photo finishes with two seconds and a winner today the frustration continues. As usual the racing in the UK on a Bank Holiday is a woeful collection of substandard races so we will go back over the Irish Sea to Fairyhouse and tackle the Irish Grand National.…

Another frustrating day with a slight loss although with early prices for Noble Legend it should have been a break even day. That would have been a lot better if Pepite Rose had not lost in a photo and Majestic Myles had managed to hold on for a place. Tomorrow we have selections in three…

Hopefully the weather will relent to allow racing over the Easter weekend and it is good to see the Lincoln has been rearranged. However one of our original selections does not run but we have an able replacement at a very big price. A decent meeting at Haydock but I have kept staking low in…

A great start to the festival with Champagne Fever repelling the challenge from My Tent or Yours and as suggested the hill found the favourite out. Unfortunately apart from a couple of fifth places nothing else performed well and disappointing to see Grandouet falling. A profit on Day 1 albeit small but bigger if taking…

A reasonably quiet day with action from two races at Sandown. Like you most of my thoughts are now geared towards the start of the Cheltenham Festival on Tuesday and the anticipation of the mighty roar for the start of the Supreme Novices Hurdle is building. Hopefully we can boost betting banks with two winners…
