Horse: Rising Marienbard (6-y-o bay gelding) Trainer: Lucinda Russell (pictured) Notes: This six-year-old was making his handicap hurdle debut at Musselburgh and I thought it was a run of some promise. Lucinda Russell doesn’t have too many handicap debutant winners and they can take some time to come to hand. This one was held up…

Hello and thanks for the great Cheltenham coverage. It was the best week’s punting at the festival that I’ve ever had. Your research is top class and you obviously work hard at it.

Hi everyone, We didn’t have a selection today but the race we provided the ratings for gave the Skelton’s another winner in Cobra De Mai. We knew the break wouldn’t be an issue, but it seems the recent wind operation has had the desired effect as Cobra De Mai won stepping up in distance and class. We…

Hi everyone, a welcome winner today in Rene’s Girl at a nice BOG price of 4/1. She drifted all day (which is normally not a good sign), but defied the market and came out a worthy winner. Desert Queen as usual was up to her antics and consented to start but then pulled her way to…

Horse: Flemerina (9-y-o bay mare) Trainer: Sue Smith Notes: This mare was running in only her second chase at Market Rasen where she gave the strong impression she will be winning over fences when stepped back up in trip. Her best hurdles form has been in testing conditions at around 3m, and in the end…

Hi there, Well Saturday was a very trying day, with technical gremlins bedeviling our normal race analysis meaning that our morning’s work was a complete waste of time. Watching the racing it felt like it might be ‘one of those days’ but fortunately we all saw the value of waiting patiently (pardon the pun) and…
