  • So there you have it. The King George VI is over with for another year and a new star is born. If, that is, a 9 year old can be classed as being born.

    We won today on Thistlecrack at odds of 6/4. That turned out to be value. The horse has proved conclusively that he is a chaser with a bright future when winning the King George VI at Kempton on Boxing Day. Do not underestimate that victory. It is rare for a novice to win such a big race. He'd only raced over the larger obstacles . . .

  • Revenge is a dish best served cold, so it is often said.

    And two winners at Newbury certainly exacted revenge upon opponents that had previously beaten them.

    24 hours ago I was tempted to stay loyal to Clan des Obeaux but there was not statistical reason why that Paul Nicholls runner should reverse form with Protex Des Flos, which beat Clan des Obeaux at Cheltenham last January.

    But, of course, there is no better trainer at improving a horse than Nicholls and Clan des Obeaux won easily. Too easily for the trainers liking.

    Twelve days ago, Behind Time beat Solomn . . .

  • It's day one of the two day Hennessy Gold Cup meeting at Newbury.

    I am attending the meeting and looking forward to seeing in action some of the best national hunt horses around at the moment.

    There will be a mixture of experienced thoroughbreds whose best days may be behind them, and some younger legs whose best days are to come.

    This meeting is when the jumps trainers like Nicholls, Hobbs, Henderson, Fry, Tizzard and Skelton get serious about taking on each other via their best horses.

  • England play Scotland on Friday night. A match that has always had special meaning for supporters of both countries . I was there - at the old Wembley - when Scottish fans tore down the goalposts and swung from the crossbar.
    When the Tartan Army were not only at Rod Stewart concerts, but walking down Wembley way wearing their tam-o-shanters and kilts.

    The game this Friday is a World Cup qualifier and one England are expected to win on home soil. Scotland manager Gordon Strachan is hanging on to his job by a thread and sorely needs his players to put . . .
