Hi everyone, we had just the one selection today in Belatrix Lestrange who went off the well-backed 2/1 favourite. Richard Johnson plotted a wide course throughout probably seeking the better ground.

Hi everyone, Assessment of Saturday’s runners. First up was Flash The Steal and we do not know how this one would have finished in the race because he fell at the fifth flight? What we do know is the pace did collapse as anticipated and the first three home all came from midfield. Imperial Alcazar…

Hi everyone, just the one selection today in the Paul Nicholls’ Red Risk who just didn’t jump well enough making a couple of bad mistakes that in the latter stages of the race told and he trailed in a distant 5th. We move on and on the face of it looks a busy day but…

Hi everyone, we had two selections on Monday so let’s start with the loser. Home Before Dusk was slow into stride from a good draw and sat midfield to rear and was shaken up at the furlong marker but was soon short of room and never dangerous from thereon. On the other hand, Waikiki Waves…

Hi everyone, we had three selections yesterday. In the Paddypower Gold Cup, we had two against the field. Slate House was very disappointing and was struggling from a long way out before eventually being pulled up just not a going day I guess. Simply The Betts tracked the leader and eventual winner Coole Cody but…

Hi everyone, we didn’t have a selection today but we looked at 4 races and we thought it would be worth reviewing these and see what we learned. In the 1.50 Magic Saint was fully primed and ready to go by Paul Nichols and he put his previous Cheltenham form behind him. He always travelled…
