Royal Ascot 2018 – Day 5

2.30pm Chesham Stakes (Listed Race) 7f On a day where on paper it looks like it could be a day for the punters, Natalie's Joy looks quite a good place to start for Mark Johnston. She romped home on her debut at Goodwood by 6 lengths in what was a good time clearing away at the... Continue Reading →

Royal Ascot 2018 – Day 4

2.30pm Albany Stakes (Group 2) 6f The form of Just Wonderful's maiden win when she was clear of the rest on her side has been working out very well with the second hacking up since and the third finishing a close second in the Queen Mary here on Wednesday. Octave is interesting on her second... Continue Reading →

Royal Ascot 2018 – Day 3

2.30pm Norfolk Stakes (Group 2) 5f Wesley Ward's horses have been a touch underwhelming and I can't have Shang Shang Shang, a few of these are also quite closely matched based on the National Stakes at Sandown so I'm looking away from the head of the market. Glory Fighter is a likeable type for Charles Hills... Continue Reading →

Royal Ascot 2018 – Day 2

2.30pm Queen Mary Stakes (Group 2) 5f Chelsea Cloisters is bound to be a warm order for the red hot Frankie Dettori in a bid to give Wesley Ward yet another Queen Mary winner and it's foolish to write her off, but she's very short for a race of this nature even though she was extremely...

Royal Ascot 2018 – Day 1

2.30pm Queen Anne Stakes (Group 1) 1m One of the best races of the week kicks us off and it seemed far easier to solve last year with Ribchester landing the spoils, it looks a lot tougher this time around though. Lockinge winner Rhododendron heads the market and rightly so after her narrow victory in... Continue Reading →

Saturday 16th June

2.25pm York - Spanish City Lightly raced five year old for Roger Varian who can continue to progress in handicaps. He was a good 6th in the Victoria Cup when arguably given too much to do from the rear of the field before getting up late in the day at Doncaster to get the better... Continue Reading →

Wednesday 23rd May

3.45pm Warwick - Nietzsche 1pt Win (9/1) Recent form figures of 6000 don't look very inspiring for Nietzsche, but he hasn't had things in his favour and today looks different. Going back to his juvenile hurdling days, he beat Project Bluebook before gaining a pair of handicap successes (the latter off a mark of 123,... Continue Reading →

Saturday 12th May

3.45pm Haydock - Intisaab 2pts Win (5/2) A very consistent performer for David O'Meara, Intisaab actually competed in the July Cup last year and wasn't disgraced in 7th behind Harry Angel. He only gained the one win on the all-weather over the winter, but he went over to Doha on his penultimate start and won... Continue Reading →

Thursday 10th May

2.25pm Chester - My Lord And Master 2pts Win (3/1) Very unexposed for William Haggas, having had just the three starts but his win at Nottingham at the back end of last season was very impressive and 6 lengths behind that day was yesterdays Chester Vase winner, Young Rascal. He stepped up in class last... Continue Reading →

Saturday 5th May

1.35pm Goodwood - Age Of Wisdom 1pt Win (7/1) He's yet to win on the turf for this stable, but has been in rude health on the all-weather in recent starts and if transferring that onto the grass then he'll take a bit of beating today. He beat Western Way in a handicap at Kempton... Continue Reading →
