Hi there, A near miss today with the well backed Balko Des Flos, and with Petit Mouchoir being a non-runner it means a small profit on the day. What a day for Patrick Mullins who took the 2 big races, the first with a wonderful ride on Wicklow Brave in the Irish Champion Hurdle. He could…

Hi everyone, a decent day today with Unknowhatimeanharry winning the Stayers hurdle after a hard fought battle on the run in with Nichols Canyon and for a change we got the result on the nod instead of it going the other way as happened twice at Cheltenham. We said in the post last night that…

Hi everyone, A poor start for us with our first selections at the Punchestown meeting both running below par. Presenting Percy was always mid division in what looked a pretty sedate pace, and when the pace quickened before two out he just didn’t seem to have much in the tank and Davy Russell eased him…

Hi everyone, Glad to say we are back in action  with a couple of selections on day 2 at Punchestown. We didn’t have a selection  today due to the small fields and short prices so nothing to report results wise, but at the time of writing Willie Mullins has closed the gap on Gordon Elliot for…

Hi everyone, the Punchestown meeting starts today but to be frank the first days card is a little disappointing from a betting point of view. We ran the numbers and analysed all the graded races, but couldn’t come up with a selection worthy of putting up. This is a five day meeting so we have plenty…

Hi everyone, Timeforwset ran OK today but maybe the 20lbs rise has finally caught up with her. To be honest would never have put the winner up at 50/1 but she won very well and confirmed her winning run from last year even though she had been out of form since. We have a top…

Hi everyone, no luck at all today with Coillte Lass not running any kind of race and being pulled up, not sure what went wrong, but I certainly don’t believe that that was a true reflection of her ability, as she has won at the distance so stamina wouldn’t have been an issue. Our second selection Snow Leopardess was…

Hi everyone, not a particularly good day at the office today. Our first selection Voix D’eau was never really travelling well and his jumping left a lot to be desired. He was struggling from a long way out and was pulled up before two out. Frustratingly the Fry second string won the race. Its’afreebee faired no better…

Horse: Wilberdragon (7-y-o bay gelding) Trainer: Charlie Longsdon Notes: This unexposed chaser (4 runs, 0 wins, 1 place over fences) caught the eye last time out when turning up at Wetherby. This is a track where Longsdon has done well with his handicap chasers in recent years. He doesn’t send many but if he does…

Hi everyone we hope you are all well rested after the bank holiday. We are still having technical problems but hopefully you are all able to access the post. To be honest this job is hard enough without dealing with all the techy stuff. Our developers assure us (heard that one before)  that normal service…
