Racing from Cheltenham takes centre stage today, it’s a fair card but nothing special. A few of the races have small field sizes which is disappointing. I’ve had a speculative few pounds EW on Chidswell in the 2:33 at Kelso. This a decent staying race with the likes of Truckers Lodge, 2nd in the Welsh National and winner of the Midlands version making the long journey. Paul Nicholls ...

Pisgah Pike won easily on Monday as we hoped he would. He's looking very progressive and deserves to take his chance in a big race. We send Nikolayeva to Newcastle this afternoon, Eva runs in the 4:30 with Ben Curtis in the saddle. This will likely be Nikolayeva's last run of the season, she's won three times and had a good time of things. This will also be the first time Nikolayeva has raced on...

We start the week with a runner at Plumpton, Pisgah Pike lines up in the first race at 2:10. This will be Pisgah Pike's last run of the year, he'll have a holiday and likely come back in the Spring on the nicer ground. Pike has to give weight away to all this afternoon as he carries a winners penalty. In such a race, you never quite know what your taking on but hopefully Pisgah Pike can go well ...

A super day of racing, something for everyone. Champions day at Ascot and two good jump meetings at Market Rasen and Stratford. We head to Market Rasen with Dame De Ruban who makes her debut for us. Dame De Ruban has been purchased for the mares’ chasing division in time. She’s a big girl that will be seen at her best over staying trips next season. 2m4f around a sharp racecourse lik...

We have a runner at Wincanton today, Stubborn Logic in the 5:05. Tom Scudamore rides. Stubborn Logic ran fine on his return at Plumpton last month, not surprisingly he got tired towards the business end of the race. Stubborn Logic will strip much this afternoon, but we need to see if the engine is still in good working order. It’s an open race with plenty holding good chances. Stubborn Lo...

A super day of racing and a big day for us with Leoncavallo. Leon runs in the £200,000 Cesarewitch at Newmarket in the 3:35. Just to have a runner in such a race will be a great thrill, having a horse in the top five in the betting is very exciting. Leoncavallo is drawn in stall 29 which makes things tricky. All horses will go right from the break and it will be a battle for a position for ...

Competition runs at Southwell this evening in the 7:20 and makes his fibresand debut. This will likely be Competition's last run of the season as he's been on the go a long time now. We don't have a clue if Competition will handle the sand whilst stall 14 of 14 makes things tough. When looking at the race, I thought Mackelly was a big price, he's now found his right odds. Mackelly was the last h...

Wet Wet Wet, that’s about it really. Ascot has gone, conditions will be awful up and down the country. France tomorrow for the Arc de Triomphe. In Swoop EW at 10-1 would be my pick, he’ll get the through the heavy ground and will be staying on when most have cried enough. We send Nikolayeva to Redcar for the 1m6f handicap. This will be the hardest race Eva has run in to date. The race...

We start the week with a runner at Bath, Competition lines up in the last race at 5:50. Competition ran a sound race eight days ago at Chelmsford finishing 2nd. Competition will be going up in the weights tomorrow, so we go again quickly. It’s a competitive race for the grade with plenty of horses in good form. Competition always give his all, he'll hopefully run another good race.

Plenty of good racing today. No time to go through it though as we head to Market Rasen with Pisgah Pike who runs in the big Summer hurdle race of the season. We throw Pisgah Pike in the deep end, The Prelude Listed Hurdle is always a very good race and today is no different. Pike is the least experienced horse in the race by some way, only running twice over hurdles so far. He’s up against...

We have our first runners for a week or so today, three in fact. Two on the level at Chelmsford and one over the jumps at Plumpton. Competition and Sampers Seven head to Chelmsford. This will be both horses last run of the year. Each has had a good season and holidays are now on the horizon. Both races look competitive, Competition hasn’t run on the surface before, but he’s versatile...

A good day of racing with plenty of smart horses running. The feature meeting is at Ayr where the Gold & Silver Cup is run. Newmarket and Newbury also hold strong fixtures whilst the jumpers go at Newton Abbot. Wolverhampton can’t be forgotten on the AW this evening. With so much racing on, it’s tough to get through all the fixtures, I’ve only had chance to have a quick look...

It was frustrating to see English King declared for the St Leger but taken out yesterday in preference for the Group 1 Juddmonte that takes place at Longchamp on Sunday. I hope English King runs well in France but can’t help thinking he’s tailor made for the St Leger and step up in trip. English King hasn’t looked quick enough for 1m4f at the top level in his past two starts. I ...

We have two runners this afternoon both over the jumps at Newton Abbot. Broughtons Admiral is first up in the 2:40. He’s not an easy horse to get fit and is taking on horses that have been running through the warmer months. The race is a nice starting point for him. Included in the 3:15. We ran Included too quickly after her good run at Stratford. Back over a fence will help and she’...

We had a fantastic day and evening on Wednesday, two runners and two winners. Pisagh Pike bolted up at Hexham by 13 lengths, Nikolayeva then followed up on her Catterick win a few days before to win again at Wolverhampton. It was a great day for the owners with some involved in both horses. Eva and Pike were our only two runners this week, the wins keep the excellent run were on at the moment go...

We have two runners today, one over jumps and a flat runner. Pisgah Pike is up first in the 4:15 at Hexham. Pisgah Pike ran well last time out when finishing 2nd at Market Rasen. The better ground and a wind op helped. We’ve had to wait for some nice ground again and it comes on a track that might not be ideal for PP. Undulations and stiff climb. Unless something is lurking that hasn&rsquo...
