  • Ryan Moore won for us today aboard Cliffs of Moher but the horse made heavy weather of it and I am not hopeful about my 10/1 ante-post each bet for that one to do well in the Derby next month.

    Ryan cost me my 4/1 double by being beaten at the winning post later on when his ride aboard US Army Ranger saw him just caught at the death by Western Hymn, under a superb ride by Frankie Dettori.

    Earlier, Evergate finished second so returning backers a little profit if they took the early price of 7 . . .

  • Three winners from four selections at sun kissed Chester on Thursday.

    Venice Beach at 5/2, Khairaat at 6/4 when tipped and Deauville when priced at 2/1 yesterday. All won, the last two at shorter SP prices. Khairaat, in particular, impressed.

    Today, as I forecast, was a day for favourite backers. Which is good news because bookies hate days like that. While I am not big on backing favs, the fact remains that a tenner (for example) on all four tips today would have seen you end the day around £50 in profit.

    It might have been a . . .

  • El Astronaute was a gutsy winner for us at Chester on Wednesday. Leading from start to finish, the one tipped up at 4/1 yesterday came past the post first at 2/1.

    After that we were twice pipped at the post. The mare Yorkidding, a 16/1 each way tip yesterday, was going really well and looked set to win prior to be nabbed close to the line. Nonetheless, placed profit was had.

    Stradivarius was also beaten at the last. Frankie did get a good tune out of that one but, sadly, Here and Now  got up to beat . . .

  • Almost there. The very end of the domestic football season beckons.

    Outside of the Premier League, it's play off time. Bradford and Millwall have already booked their League 2 play off final places at Wembley on May 20th.

    Now four clubs in the Championship and League 2 play the first legs of their own play off semi finals. So much at stake, especially for whichever club wins the Championship play off final at Wembley on Monday May 29th.

    In the Premier League it surely must be time for Chelsea to be crowned Champions, as I predicted to members of . . .

  • Weather permitting, the boys and girls of Cheshire will be all dressed up and wearing their finest outfits for racing at The Roodee, Chester's distinctive racecourse.

    Known in the 19th century as the 'soup-plate' racecourse, it's rare because of the shape of the course. For so long in a race, jockeys are racing around a tight circle. The Roodee has more curves than the WAGS who will be there with their footballing husbands.

    I love the place. Not all jockeys do. Not all horses do. Some trainers and owners do particularly well there. But even Frankel might . . .

  • We began the day well with Playful Sound winning the first race at Newmarket at SP odds of 10/1. Tipped up as an each way bet at odds of 11/1  yesterday, the race proved that Ryan Moore can choose the wrong horse once in a while. Trainer Sir Michael Stoute sent out Ballet Concerto with Ryan in the saddle, but it was stablemate Playful Sound that won well. Stoute said Ballet Concerto simply did not like the good to firm ground underfoot.

    Ryan's day improved when my 5/4 tip Seventh Heaven won well and at a . . .

  • Welcome to new members joining today, Dorothy, Simon and Steve, and welcome back to Richard.

    Every year, members of VG Tips come, go and often come back again. That's fine. Personal circumstances can change, sensible punters take a break if they have a bad run. That's what you should do in such circumstances. Go away, refresh your mind, expunge any negativity from your brain and return to punting fresh.

    I had a message today from Neil. He's had to walk away for a while for perfectly understandable personal reasons.His lovely e-mail to me was very . . .
