    Imagine putting £100.000 on a horse knowing you'll 'only' win £30.000. Such people have more money than brain cells. In that position, I swear I would give the money to a good cause.

    Now imagine if that punter at Epsom on Friday gave a care when the horse that carried his money, Cracksman, looked in great danger of loosing a race he was 3/10 on to win. Would that punter be shaking in his or her boots? Perhaps not. Would they have missed the £100.000? Unlikely. Madness.

    Lucky for him or her, Frankie Dettori grabbed . . .

    I still miss the days when the Derby took place on a Wednesday in June. A day when the late Queen Mother would turn up, when the sun shone down on the Epsom Downs and my teacher, unbeknown to the headmistress, would turn the telly on and let the class watch the race.

    No Queen Mum this year, obviously. No sunshine, sadly. Indeed the rain arrived earlier this week and some further showers are forecast between now and the off of the big race on Saturday.

    It does mean the going at Epsom will be soft for the pre-cursor . . .

    Battaash was the banker bet of the day and duly delivered. Some punters took advantage of the surprising pre-race drift and were on at 5/4. Battash won at SP odds of 10/11. Still value providing you don't mind backing horses at odds on prices.

    The Feathered Nest returned a little each way profit at Chester but otherwise it was a disappointing Saturday of punting for me. As an each way punter you are always taking a bigger chance than a punter who sticks with the favourite in each race. On Saturday, quite a few favourites won . . .

    I was pleased to see Arthur Kitt win for members, first time on a racecourse. Sometimes it is all about pedigree. A son of Camelot and half brother to a former winner for us, Eartha Kitt, Haydock expert Rickard Kingscote rode the colt to a comfortable victory at SP odds of 3/1.

    But I was on at 6/1, the price on offer when I mailed members of VG Tips that tip on Thursday afternoon.

    Arthur Kitt is one to keep an eye out for in the future.

    George Bowen was beaten by a neck. I'd rather lose . . .

    We are entering a busy and high quality week of racing.

    This weekend we have the Irish 1000 and 2000 Guineas at the Curragh just outside Dublin. The following weekend it is the Oaks and Derby on the Epsom Downs. Flat racing at its very best.

    As existing members of VG Tips know, I believe in sticking to the quality race meetings wherever possible. They test the research skills of any punter or tipster, but that makes it all worthwhile.

    There exist far too many low quality race meetings across the year. Punting fodder that is on purely to line . . .

    I received a message recently from a loyal member asking about the odds I mention in my posts/e-mails to members.

    He'd missed some of the earlier prices and wanted to know how I went about this process.

    As members know, I offer analysis, selections and prices the day/night before the racing in question. I look out for the first prices in the market as they are often the best. Bet365 and Paddy Power are usually the first bookies to price up a race.

    If I see a first price I like the look of, I stop . . .

    I do like York. Both the place and the May meeting at the racecourse never lets me down.

    Between Wednesday and Friday I offered selections in eight races. Members of VG Tips have enjoyed winners at odds of 4/1 (NAP), 3/1, 5/2, 21/20 (NAP), along with each way profitable punts at 8/1 and 11/2. One win selection let us down by finishing second and there were only two races of the eight that did not return me and members money across the three days of the Dante meeting.

    On Friday Warsaan, a 5/2 . . .

    Coronet won for members on Thursday. She does hold her head in a strange position when racing, but the attractive looking grey filly raced away from the field to land the Group 2 Middleton Stakes with something to spare.

    In the feature race, the Group 2 Dante Stakes, my tip Roaring Lion won easily, going away at the finish. He justified my continued confidence in him and John Gosden is minded to send him to the Derby at Epsom on June 2nd and take on the hot favourite Saxon Warrior once again.

    I advised members on Wednesday that Roaring Lion . . .

    My NAP won on Wednesday. Give and Take was an excellent, value price and quite comfortable winner. Tipped up to members of VG Tips when available at 4/1 on Tuesday night, the William Haggas trained Give and Take won under a last to first ride by jockey James Doyle.

    It was a mixed day for the ever likeable Yorkshireman, William Haggas. His Tasleet incurred a minor injury overnight that prevented from him racing at York on Wednesday. The frustration of Haggas was evident in the interviews he gave after Give and Take won for members.

    One further thing to . . .
