3/6/17 – Derby Day

Was an ok day yesterday, with De Bruyne Horse kicking us off with an easy 13/8 winner. He looked like he didn’t like the track in the slightest and took ages to get balanced, but once he did the result was never in doubt. Hawkbill ran a decent enough race in the Coronation Cup. If […]

2/6/17 – Oaks Day

I’ve had a little break from the blog in the last couple of weeks. Been busy so just haven’t had the time. Still a bit short of time today so this won’t be as in depth as usual, but this should just be a one off with normal service resumed with my Derby blog.  Epsom […]

No luck with Brando in the Clipper Stakes. He travelled powerfully in the first half of the race before going out like a light. He’s much better than that and you’d think something may have been amiss. ITV showed a good angle of Tom Eaves looking down at the horse after he knew the race […]

No luck with Buzz the other day. He stumbled coming round the top bend and its game over after that. We can put a line straight through that run and he should still be a decent price next time. He remains one to follow. One for me on Day 1 of the Dante meeting. It […]

I’ve had a few days or so off the blog now, as I just fancied a little break from writing. But I did put up Tisbutadream (won at 11/1) and Sobetsu (won at 20/1) on twitter so I hope some of you followed me in on those. They won’t count towards monthly P/L though as […]

Sunday was another decent day, with Frontiersman winning easily at 6/1. Intricately was disappointed in the Guineas though. Joseph O’Brien said he’s not even sure why she ran so badly, but it’s still been a good start to the month so it’s not the end of the world. It’s the start of Chester’s 3 day […]

7/4/17 – 1000 Guineas Day

Very pleased with how yesterday went, so it’s been a good start to the month. Goldream ran a big a race to finish 3rd at 20/1 (small R4), but I’m delighted with Churchill. All I saw and heard all day was negative after negative about him. I was very boisterous about him on here so […]
