Cleeve members selections – 1st October

Hi everyone, Both todays selections failed to deliver. Kadrizi was heavily backed all the way into 6/1 (advised at 11/1) so obviously there was plenty of confidence from connections.

Cleeve members selections – 30th September

Hi everyone, Wednesdays selection Fidaawy went off the 4/1F and at the two furlong marker seemed to travelling best of all heading the chasing pack behind Josephine Gordon on Beach Bar. But when asked to quicken by Dane O’Neill he just stayed on at the one pace and never got a blow in. Maybe he…

Cleeve member selections – Friday 23rd September

Hi there, A tricky day’s racing in prospect tomorrow but it should hopefully give us a few pointers for Saturday. We looked at three races but have decided only to play in one, given the good form we are currently in I would rather protect profits and wait for better opportunities than play just for the sake of…

Cleeve member selections – Saturday 17th September

Hi everyone, Today was a bit of a weird one with all the overnight rain and many non-runners doe to the changing ground.
