    The fourth winner for me at Punchestown this week was Kemboy, a 7/1 tip 24 hours ago. Very well backed on the day, Kemboy won comfortably at an SP price of only 11/4. I love it when we grab an early value price.

    As was the case on Thursday when 10/1 tip Park Paddocks also won for members of VG Tips.

    Crystal Ocean, a 5/4 tip to win at Sandown on Friday, got the better of a photo finish courtesy of jockey Ryan Moore. The SP price was only Evens.

    Moore rode one of my Derby . . .

    Although it meant I was a loser on Wednesday, I was delighted for jockey Paul Townend when he answered his crticis in the best way possible. By riding a hat trick of winners in fine fashion at Punchestown.

    The true racing crowd in Ireland cheered him back and cheered him up, regardless of whether or not they had money on his rides. It will have lifted his spirits after the well publicised debacle on Tuesday.

    His colleagues at the Willie Mullins stables had already had their fun on Wednesday morning, taking the mickey out of his ride aboard Al Boum . . .

  • What a performance from Liverpool in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final against Roma.

    And what about those goals from Mo Salah. Fabulous finishing.

    It's not what any of their fans will want to hear right now, but Liverpool will really have their work cut out to keep him at Anfield. You would imagine that next January, or during the summer of 2019, the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona will come calling for his services. If, that is, he proves not to be a one season flash in the pan. I think he is anything . . .

    I don't know if all reading this will have watched the video of a race at Punchestown on Tuesday that ended in a chaotic fashion.

    The to be trusted jockey Paul Townend has been on the receiving end of some abuse from punters due to the calamity that befell him at the final fence in the Growise Novice Chase.

    He was leading aboard Al Boum Photo two fences from home when Monalee fell and in so doing brought down my own 16/1 each way tip, Invitation Only, which was going well at the time and may well have . . .

    A 25/1 winner landed one of the feature races at Punchestown on Tuesday, the Champion Novice Hurdle. That was a surprise. Willie Mullins trained the winner called Draconien, and it's rare for him to have a winner at such a big price. Bookies will have enjoyed that outcome as punters steamed into the more obvious expected winners.

    But that's where we are now, at the end of the jumps season proper and with so very many races that are wide open. I would not be too sure about anyone you speak to who says they are "sure . . .

  • The best winning football tips last weekend included a win for Sheffield Wednesday at odds of 13/10, Middlesbrough at 2/1, Wolves at Evens, Cardiff at 1/2, Aston Villa at 3/4 and Wigan at 8/15.

    Some of those clubs are in action this midweek, but the main attention will be upon the first legs of the Champions League semi finals.

    Not so long ago it looked as though this would be a vintage year for English clubs in the competition. But now all hopes rest on the shoulders of Liverpool Football Club.

    Can they bring the . . .

    So this is the final week of National Hunt selections for the season. It's been a good one. Not only did we win the Grand National for the third year running at VG Tips, we had a very enjoyable and profitable few months of betting in jumps racing.

    The Cheltenham Festival delivered members 10 winning tips and a further 9 profitable each way tips that were placed. That was my most profitable Cheltenham Festival since 2012.

    On the track, the season delivered some fine new horses to watch for the future and saw some of the best jockeys win . . .

    That was impressive today from our 7/2 winner Lah Ti Dar. The John Gosden trained winner at Newbury looked good when winning by 6 lengths on debut and, as I told members in my pre-race analysis, comes from a very good pedigree.

    The bookies reacted swiftly to that fine victory by cutting her price for the Oaks on June 1st to a best price 14/1 with one, but mainly 12/1 elsewhere.

    The ground conditions up and down the country continue to dry out as much of the UK is bathed in sunshine for at least one . . .
