Thirsk bound today with two runners. Boundless Power & Vocatus in the 1:35 & 2:10. Boundless Power is having to run quickly after winning at Nottingham last week. He's going up 7lb which is harsh so we don't have much choice but to run again. The race on paper is very different, it won't be as strongly run whilst Boundless Power carries a lofty weight. Paul Hanagan free to ride was the d...

Baily Gorse makes his second start for us this afternoon at Worcester in the 4:35. We were very happy with his first run when second at Chepstow and learnt plenty about him. Today's race is deep for the grade, An Tailliur won very easily five days ago and looked like a horse with a good chunk in hand. Hopefully, Baily Gorse can run another nice race.

We head to Nottingham today with Boundless Power who is set to run in the second race at 1:45.It's going to be a very wet day up and down the country, we'll see what the ground is like at Nottingham, if it's proper testing we'll wait for another race. With all the rain around, it's not a day I'm betting on. Haydock will be heavy come the first race, must be a fair chance rest of the meetings won'...

Quiet Penny runs this evening in the 7:20 at Fontwell. A small but competitive race where all runners hold chances. Penny was going to run at Wincanton, but that meeting was abandoned due to firm ground. The drop back in trip isn't ideal but Fontwell does have a stiff finish, Penny will need every yard of it. Hopefully she can repeat her Warwick effort and give another good account.

I'm On Snap makes her debut for us this evening in the last race at Southwell.She came over from Ireland and it's fair to say, was rough around the edges upon arrival. I'm On Snap has the odd bit of form across the water but for some reason, was given a 9lb higher rating when arriving with us which is very harsh. She looks much better now and Tom is happier with her after some TLC. We'll learn mo...

Guineas weekend, first of the flat classics. Not original but I like Thunder Moon. His win at the Curragh last year was hugely impressive. Thunder Moon was beaten next time by horses he beat at the Curragh, but the ground was soft in the Dewhurst. Thunder Moon went like the best horse in the race but couldn't pick up on the slower going. Back on good to firm and providing he's trained on, I thin...

Nikolayeva makes her seasonal debut this afternoon in the 2:25 at Wolverhampton.Eva had a great 2020, winning three times for her owners. Hopefully another good season awaits. Nikolayeva runs off a career high rating today whilst we run on the AW as the ground is too quick for her at the moment, Eva handles soft ground and stays strongly. She might find things happening a bit quick this afternoon...

We have two runners this afternoon, Black Anthem making his seasonal debut in the 3:40 at Warwick. Boundless Power is also making his seasonal debut and debut for us at the same time. He goes in the first race at Chelmsford. Black Anthem is a real pro, enjoys his work and gives his all at home and on the racecourse. He’s off a career high rating today whilst up against race fit horses. Blac...

Leoncavallo was an excellent 4th at Aintree yesterday for his owners. Leon ran another big race in a hot handicap, only the younger unexposed horses could beat him carrying the best part of a stone less. It was a super afternoon in the winner's enclosure at the National meeting. Grand National Day, I've backed the below horses EW. Cloth Cap 6-1Minella Times 9-1TalkIsCheap 50-1Alpha Des Obeaux 80...

We head to Aintree with two runners in the same race at 5:15. From memory, this is the first time ever we’ve had two horses taking each other on. It’s fair to say Leoncavallo is hopefully the one that holds a nice EW chance. Competition is trying his best, but he’s having his first run over hurdles for 580 days. He’ll no doubt sharpen up for the outing. Not time to go thr...

The three day, Aintree Grand National meeting starts today. This is my favourite NH meeting of the year and more so than Cheltenham. It’s more relaxed and a super meeting to attend. It's a shame only owners can go this time around. I’m not surprised to see the odds tighten on the David Pipe trained Adagio who runs in the 2:20. The 7-4 on offer in what should be a two-horse race seemed...

Nothing catches the eye today from a betting point of view, I'm holding fire until Aintree which starts next week.I purchased a new horse from the Newmarket sales on Wednesday called Parknacilla for just 4,000gns. Parknacilla looks a steal at that price, she's very well handicapped and will be trained by Mick Appleby. We'll give her a good holiday, get Parknacilla out of Newmarket and bring her ba...

Quiet Penny heads to Warwick this afternoon and runs in the 2:25. Penny is making her chasing debut. We’ve got Quiet Penny wrong so far or think we have. Hopefully, conditions at Warwick will be more suitable, and we see a better effort. Stylish Dancer will be hard to beat, he’s got the best part of 15lb in hand on current ratings and runs again before the handicapper has his say. Pe...

We start the week with a runner at Wincanton. Stung For Cash makes his chasing debut in the 1:30.Stung For Cash moved well for a long way at Ffos Las last time out, looked set for a place but dropped away at the business end. That might be him as he is by Scorpion, but it's possible we've had him wrong and a drop in trip on nicer ground is required. Stung For Cash gets this today, so we'll see ho...
