Shishkin or Energumene, Energumene or Shishkin. I’ll go with Energumene. We head South with two runners, Cornicello and Leoncavallo who both run at Taunton. Cornicello receives the weight for age allowance and is nicely in, but because of this, takes on seasoned and battle-hardened horses. Cornicello will have to do everything right, run and jump quicker than he’s done so before. Tou...

We have two runners at Ludlow this afternoon, Olympe De Gouges in the 1:30 and Sea The Clouds 4:00. Olympe De Gouges unseated on her hurdling debut, she was unlucky as a horse in front flattened the hurdle and this took her eye. Olympe stumbled and gave Fergus no chance of staying on. Ludlow will be plenty sharp enough for Olympe De Gouges whilst she's still learning her trade. Sea The Clouds w...

Back to Wolverhampton this evening, this time with Twistaline who runs in the 4:30. Twisty won on debut for her owners at Lingfield then finished 5th at Southwell last week. Twistaline didn't handle the new tapeta surface which is riding slow and testing. Wolverhampton should suit a lot better, but this will be her third run in a short space of time. If something has a few pounds in hand in that...

Wolverhampton this evening under the lights which is always a good night out. Vocatus runs in the seller at 5:00, Tom Marquand rides. Across The Nile and Never Said Nothing meet again after finishing first and second eleven day ago. Across The Nile is weighted to turn the form around, 4lb better off. Vocatus has run well at Wolverhampton both times he's tried but found things happening a little ...

Leoncavallo was a solid 3rd at Taunton, he didn't jump very well for some reason so we'll get him checked over. This cost him second place. The winner was thrown in and had a good 15lb in hand and more. Could be one for something like the Imperial Cup. Southwell tonight with Twistaline who runs again quickly after winning at Lingfield last week. Twisty seems well and with race conditions to suit,...

We start the week with a runner, Leoncavallo makes the short journey to Taunton and takes his chance in the 3:00. There isn't much I can say about Leon, he wears his heart on his sleeve and you'd want him in the trenches with you. Leoncavallo deserves to win one of these but keeps bumping into a well handicapped horse. Giving weight away to all won't be easy, but Leon won't go down without a fig...

Nikolayeva ran a super on her hurdles debut at Ffos Las on Wednesday, a solid second place in a race that turned into a sprint. Eva loved the deep heavy ground and seemed to enjoy herself. She can pick up a race or two over hurdles at some point. We head to Newcastle this afternoon with Dibble Decker who also makes his hurdles debut. Dibble Decker finished sixth in a Listed bumper at Cheltenham o...

We had a super afternoon at Lingfield yesterday with Twistaline winning on debut for her owners and trainer Mick Appleby. Twisty was a cheap recruit at 7,000gns, we hoped she was on a workable rating and our way of doing things might improve her. Twistaline was given a smart ride by Jim Crowley, he timed his run to the second and delivered Twistaline a few strides before the winning post. A great...

First runner of the year this afternoon, Twistaline makes her debut for owners in the 2:35 at Lingfield. Twistaline was a cheap purchase from the Tatts sales in October. She hasn't won a race yet but is consistent at her level. She's an honest filly that tries hard but it's fair to say isn't a superstar. There are some small races to be won with her. Today's race sees horses making handicap debu...

Happy New Year to one and all. If you went out last night, I hope the head isn’t sore this morning. Racing from Cheltenham will hopefully clear the mind where a fantastic 30,000 crowd is expected. It’s incredible Scotland and Wales are hiding under the bed covers and waiting for life to pass them by. I’ve had a couple of bets at Cheltenham where conditions will be hard work. Fi...

I'm very pleased how this year has gone. We continue to have one of the best strike rates and have our fair share of winners for the money we spend on horses compared to others. In 2021, we had exactly 100 runners. Of these were:21 Winners17 Seconds10 Thirds7 Fourths£163,861 of prize money won. 20% win strike rate and over 50% of all runners finished in the winner's enclosure which is a gr...

Our last runner of the year this afternoon and bizarrely this will be our 100th runner of the year. Olympe De Gouges heads North to Doncaster in the 1:03. It's taken a bit longer than hoped to run Olympe De Gouges again, she picked up a nasty bug that knocked her for six not long after making her debut for us at Wolverhampton. Olympe De Gouges will improve plenty for the run, she'll likely need ...

I hope you had a lovely Christmas and the turkey was good.One of the best afternoons of sport in the year today, so many meetings it's hard to know where to start.We are at Fontwell with a runner, Cornicello takes his chance in the 1:07. It goes without saying Yorksea will be very hard to beat. I'm very much looking forward to watching The Kauto Star Novice Chase, 1:55 Kempton. Bravemansgame has ...

Present Value winning on Wednesday on debut for his owners, us and Jamie Snowden was a very pleasing result. I love buying this type of horse, lost its way, given up on but had shown smart form a few years ago. A lot of work had gone into Present Value, we have a very good record turning these types of horses around. It was a great team effort and gives everybody a huge buzz. I’ve had a co...

Present Value makes his debut for his owners this afternoon at Leicester in the 3:15.We purchased Present Value in May for £10,000. A horse that looked very smart at one point, beaten only a couple of lengths by Al Dancer on his first start then winning a maiden by seven lengths next time. It went wrong for Present Value after a heavy fall at Newbury over a fence. He looked v smart before t...
