  • Wow! What about that? Hot favourite Idaho clips heels or misses a step and dumps jockey Seamie Heffernan to the floor. To my eyes Idaho was moving through to get to the front when the accident happened. Nothing anyone can do about that.

    Punters will be furious. Bookmakers relieved. The beneficiary was the race itself as it wnsured it wasn't a one horse race. And the owners and trainer of the eventual 22/1 winner Harbour Law were delighted.

    It was a thrilling finish to the last classic race of the flat season. Idaho was fine and so was . . .

  • I read today (Friday) of a new online bookie promising that they will not close the accounts of punters who win too often. If they stick to their word, and if they offer decent odds, they should attract plenty of business.

    I am often asked what punters should do if a bookie refuses to take their bets online, or reduces the stakes they can place to small sums.

    Take your business elsewhere. Over the years I have been blocked by some bookies simply for taking more from them than they take from me. Bad losers, they are.

    I still cannot . . .

  • With the Friday selections racing this evening, I cannot yet report on how well or badly they have performed.

    So let me go directly to Saturday and Sunday.

    Not at Ascot, which stages the so called Shergar Cup. Enjoy it if you are going to the Berkshire course. There are some fine horses on show, along with some good jockeys - and some not so good!

    This is an event created by public relations people. The best horses will not necessarily win the best races, usually because they are having allocated to them a jockey who is not fit to be . . .

  • The flat season is coming to a peak. The weekend after this one we have top class racing at Ascot, including an all time favourite of mine, the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes. That meeting also includes the Juddmonte and International Stakes.

    That is quickly followed by some very good racing at Goodwood over the final days of July. I look forward to those meetings.

    At the time of writing none of the Friday evening racing selections have raced. So I must go straight on to Saturday and flat meetings at Newmarket, Newbury and the feature race across . . .

  • A 20/1 winning newcomer is always welcome. Emmie won for members at Newbury on Thursday at that price. The High Chaparal filly won for us by two and three quarter lengths. 14/1 when I selected her as an each way bet for members, the price drifted out to 20/1, but she easily beat the favourite.

    And we had a winner on Friday at 3/1. Hornsby was 11/4 when I selected that one to win and the SP price was bigger. I love it when that happens.

    Don't worry when the price for a selection . . .
