3.55pm Warwick - Perfect Pirate 1pt Win (8/1) Perfect Pirate is still unexposed having had just the 6 runs over obstacles with a couple of wins to his name, both of those victories have come on ground with 'good' in the description which should see him in a better light today. He has struggled in... Continue Reading →

2.10pm Epsom - Tavener 1pt Each Way (12/1) Two wins from his last three starts, with both victories coming under today's rider Andrea Atzeni, Tavener comes into this race in the form of his life. He's versatile with regards to distance and he showed at Chelmsford last time that he certainly doesn't lack the speed... Continue Reading →

2.25pm Yarmouth - Stylehunter 1pt Win (8/1) Some nice pedigrees on show here and I'm taking John Gosden's Stylehunter to land the spoils. He took a real step forward from his debut effort when finishing third at Kempton last time, he was hampered late on there and would have pushed the winner very close if... Continue Reading →

Monday 23rd April

3.10pm Pontefract - El Astronaute 1pt Each Way (11/1) El Astronaute is a proper speedball for John Quinn and his sprinter loves to get out of the stalls quickly and dominate from the front, which will be a useful tactic around this track which tends to suit those that race to the fore. He has... Continue Reading →

Saturday 21st April

2.20pm Ayr - Barney Dwan 1pt Win (11/2) Waiting for decent ground all season long, Barney Dwan hasn't really had his ideal conditions at all, but he gets them today and he can take advantage. Second in the Pertemps Final at Cheltenham off this mark last year behind Presenting Percy is a high class piece... Continue Reading →

2.40pm Cheltenham - Kalondra 2pts Win (11/2) Neil Mulholland has been biding his time with Kalondra, having avoided both the Cheltenham and Aintree Festivals in the search for better ground which he gets here. He's done well since switching to fences by gaining a pair of victories, including over course and distance when beating subsequent... Continue Reading →

Tuesday 17th April

2.00pm Exeter - Applesolutely 2pts Win (3/1) Master Tommytucker went about his business very well on debut at this venue a couple of months ago, but he's a very short price today and in contrast, Applesolutely just looks way too big. Richard Mitford-Slade's mare won her debut over hurdles at a huge 20/1, getting the... Continue Reading →

Aintree Festival Day 3

1.45pm - Gaskells Handicap Hurdle - Debece 1pt Each Way (8/1, 5 Places with bet365) I'm quite sweet on the chances of Tim Vaughan's Debece in the opener, both his attempts on soft ground have resulted in 19 length victories so these are conditions that he evidently has a real liking for. He's won off a... Continue Reading →

Aintree Festival Day 2

1.45pm - Alder Hey Children's Charity Handicap Hurdle - Who Dares Wins 1pt Win (15/2), Jester Jet 0.5pts Each Way (25/1) I'm going to have a couple of stabs at this and Alan King's Who Dares Wins should appreciate dropping back in trip following the Pertemps Final at Cheltenham where I don't think he quite got... Continue Reading →

Aintree Festival Day 1

1.45pm - Manifesto Novices' Chase This is such a tough race to solve and for that reason it'll be a watching brief for me, cases can be made for many and also holes can be picked in many. Cyrname comes in here fresh and his form when just losing out to Terrefort at Sandown is... Continue Reading →
