I've not updated on Ascot all week apart from Wednesday when the once fancy so far, Real World bolted up at 33-1 in the Royal Hunt cup. Backed into 18-1, things weren't going to get much better than that and with all the rain that's fallen, I’ve not placed another bet since until today. Horses with soft ground form is the only way to go, I think a low draw is also required if that helps you...

I'm On Snap runs at Uttoxeter this afternoon in the 1:45 at Uttoxeter. Snap won last time out at Fontwell in a race hit by none runners. It didn't take much winning but at the same time, everything was against I'm On Snap. Nobody wanted to lead and we hit the front much earlier than Snap would have liked. Today's bigger field and hopefully stronger gallop will suit. It will need a career best bu...

Leoncavallo and his owners head to Sandown this afternoon to run in a hot handicap at 4:35. Leon needs little introduction, he's a brilliant horse and will give his all as ever. It's a good race, Sulochana could be anything and carries a stone less. Baily Gorse then takes his chance at Worcester in the 6:30. No idea what happened last time out after a good debut for us when finishing second. Bail...

Aintree this evening with two runners whilst Blue Bernie "greyhound" runs for the first time at Romford. Dame De Ruban makes her seasonal debut in the 5:45. Dame will be going chasing after this run. She'll improve plenty for it, whilst the trip will likely be on the sharp side. Saramenha runs again quickly in the following race. Nothing went right at Hexham last week, including an awful nine-ho...

Four runners today, which is a first. From memory, we’ve had three runners once, but never four. To be honest I would have preferred not for it to happen as I can’t see all the horses run in person. Black Anthem is first up in the 1:25 at Southwell. Black Anthem is still a good chunk above his last winning rating and although working well, he might need help from the handicapper. Awe...

Two runners on Derby day, Worcester and Hexham. We've struggled to find races for Yes No Maybe So who runs in the first at Worcester and makes his chasing debut. It gets to a point where you have to run, so he does today. The trip will be very much on the sharp side for our horse. It's over £600 for fourth place and anything better than that will help pay for the journey and run. The exper...

Competition heads up the M1 today to run at Catterick in the 2:25. Competition won nicely at Leicester 18 days ago in another selling race and bids to follow that up. This race looks to be stronger on paper whilst Compy has gone up 3lb for the win. He's in good form though and touch wood can run another nice race.

We head to Huntingdon today with two runners.First up is Quiet Penny who runs in the 2:40. Guinness Affair then makes his debut for us in the bumper at 4:20. Quiet Penny won nicely last time out at Fontwell, this would be a stronger race, but Penny seems in good form and touch wood can go well again. Guinness Affair we purchased after he finished second on debut in a bumper at Fakenham. It's imp...

Off to Fontwell today witch which is always a nice racecourse to visit. Two runners, Flash De Clerval in the 3:00, I'm On Snap 5:50. Flash De Clerval returns, hopefully a healthier horse. He's undergone treatment for ulcers over the past months. Back over hurdles today in a bid to keep things simple and touch wood get some confidence into Flash. Hopefully he can run a race and we'll build from th...

Teescomponentslass makes the journey to Bangor-on-Dee this afternoon and runs in the 3:03. This will be Tees last run before a holiday. She's a big strong mare but green as grass and needs time. She might find things happening a bit quick around Bangor, but the further experience won't be lost on her.

We run Boundless Power this afternoon in the 4:35 at Nottingham. Boundless Power has to run again quickly, not by choice but due to the handicapper been harsh in our opinion.  Three runs in consecutive weeks isn't ideal and whatever the result today, we'll freshen Boundless Power up and give him a mini break. Hopefully the petrol tank is still high, and he can run another big race.

Testing conditions again today, soft / heavy ground all over. This time last year, we were having a heatwave. It's been incredibly wet. The Goffs NH sales took place this week, the money spent was incredible. Horses you might think will make 20k, were nearer 50k. It seemed trainers had orders to fill, and it didn't matter what the cost were, get the horse and worry about monies later. I was unde...

Tinsmith makes his seasonal debut today at Wolverhampton in the 1:20.As you'll likely know by now, Tinsmith is a giant of a horse standing at 17.2h. He'll gallop all day long over any distance at the same pace. The race looks a nice starting point for Tinsmith, but others might have more pace than him on this sharp track.

Competition runs this evening at Leicester in the 5:35. Competition will mainly be jumping this season, but this race looked worth a go. It's a seller and you never quite know what you're taking on. However, there looks to be more horses that can't win than can. The ground is the concern for Competition. We don't want any rain at all. School Of Thought and Chichloui look the obvious ones to beat...

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.
