Walk Of The Roses makes her jumping and seasonal debut at the same time today in the first race at Newton Abbot.Rose showed nice promise in two bumper races last year, she's done well for her holidays and grown. The going will be a worry, soft / heavy in places, if Rose will handle it, we don't have a clue. It didn't look the best of races at declaration time, and it's close to home, so we'll giv...

A busy week so far with days away at the sales, a stable morning taking place today at Jamie Snowden's plus a runner at Haydock this afternoon. We purchased three new horses from the Goffs sales, all NH winter types. We were very pleased with the business and each horse looks a really nice prospect. 40 odd owners will be seeing their horses at Jamie's today and enjoying a garden party.The ground...

We make the journey to Ripon this evening, our first evening fixture of the year. Ripon is a lovely racecourse, the sun will be shining, and the short sleeve shirts will be out. Andromedas Kingdom followed up her win last week when going in again on Bank Holiday Monday. This wins keeps us ticking over nicely for the year so far. Yesterday, we purchased a horse from the Tatts online sale for just...

We have a runner at Bath on Bank Holiday Monday, where a big crowd will be enjoying the nicer weather.Andromedas Kingdom runs in the last race at 5:45. AK won over C&D eight days ago, which took us by surprise to say the least. She had only been in training the best part of six weeks, whilst the headgear she normally needs was left off.We have to run again quickly as Andromedas Kingdom's rati...

We have our first flat runners of the season this afternoon at Bath racecourse.Squeezebox & Andromedas Kingdom run in the 3:20 and 5:35, Hollie Doyle rides both horses. Squeezebox is a big heavy horse, he's fit as Mick Appleby can get him at home but whatever he does today, he'll improve for the outing. In good form at home though and the ground won't be a problem. Andromeads Kingdom hasn't ...

The Lord Maid won nicely on her debut for us and her owners yesterday at Southwell. She's a nice mare who we like a lot, it's always a relief they show on the racecourse what you hope they will. The Lord Maid will go on holiday now and come back in the winter. Another runner today, this time at Uttoxeter. Let's Sail Away in the 4:30. Let's Sail Away has been on the go for a long time, pushing t...

The Lord Maid makes her debut for us and her owners this afternoon in the 4:05 at Southwell.We've not had her long, purchased privately from Ireland after winning a Maiden Hurdle. Her form looks sound whilst the bumper effort when third behind Maughreen reads well, that horse would have been favourite for the Cheltenham Festival bumper if not for picking up a niggle. This will be the only run th...

Scottish Grand National Day, and a big afternoon in the trainer’s championship race. If Willie Mullins takes the big race, that will make him very hard to beat going into the final weeks of the season. Two of our syndicate trainers will be hoping to stop that from happening, Jamie Snowden and Lucinda Russell have the first and second favourites in Git Maker & Inis Oirr. Both horses look...

I Am Maximus won the Grand National in the style of a horse that was just getting warmed up. This win puts Willie Mullins top of the trainer's championship. I would expect a lorry load of horses coming over to Aintree and Sandown. I Am Maximus win completed a nice few days of results on here, he was also tipped on last week's newsletter when a double figure price. Today we head to Plumpton with ...

Kateira got the job done yesterday and gave us a nice 5-1 winner, always going well and a fair return. Firefox would have been the icing on the cake, but Mystical Power was too speedy for him. Grand National Day, not much stands out in the other races with plenty of horses running again after Cheltenham, which is something I try and keep away from. The ground is drying and perhaps won’t be...

Sir Gino gave us a bit to play with on Day 2 of the Grand National meeting.Two bets placed today, Kateira in the 2:20 and Firefox 2:55. Kateira has clearly been aimed at this race all season, second in the Grade 1 Novice at Aintree last year, that form is red-hot and the best in this race by a mile. A pipe opener took place at Kempton 27 days ago to blow the cobwebs away, Kateira will be fit and...

The Aintree Grand National meeting starts today, this is my favourite jump meeting of the season. Grey Dawning was my Cheltenham Festival nap and got the job done. However, I'm not so keen backing horses at Aintree that ran at the festival. I've had one bet today and backed Sir Gino in the 2:20, priced at 11-10.Sir Gino was pulled out of Cheltenham due to the bug in the Henderson yard, reports s...

We have our first runners this afternoon for a few weeks.Dibble Decker heads to Maket Rasen and Counsel makes the journey in the opposite direction to Lingfield.Dibble Decker must go right-handed, so we have to pick and choose his races. The race distance is a furlong shorter than he normally runs over, whilst Market Rasen is more of a speed track. It could be on the sharp side, but the long home ...

Howth runs today at Newcastle in the 1:53, a brilliant card of racing, AW Champions Day.Just to have a runner at the meeting is very pleasing, whilst the prize money is outstanding. £150,000 the race is worth, that's double than any of the Cheltenham handicaps races the other week. Howth won nicely last time out and loved the step-up in trip to 1m6f. If he stays 2m on a stiff racecourse, w...

We travel to Newcastle today with Askmore who runs in the last race on the card. Askmore has a V next to his name, this was due to the last race he ran in being voided. If the race finished, we would have been third. The step up to three miles will suit, whilst the testing ground shouldn't be a problem. Taking the favourite out of the race, it's wide open and Askmore has a good chance as any of ...

The flat season kind of starts today at Doncaster with the Lincoln meeting.This fixture comes very early, I've always thought get Aintree out the way, then full throttle into the flat.We have our one and only runner today at Newcastle, Captain Square in the first race. Captain Square runs again quickly, he was a good third last weekend at Wolverhampton. Providing this race doesn't come too quickl...
