  • Racing Tips June 20

    By on 19th June 2018

    I send my analysis and selections for Wednesday just as the second race has finished on Tuesday. Nice and early so that you have more time to study what I have to say. And please do read the analysis.

    Calyx won the Group 2 Coventry Stakes, second ever time on a racecourse. So I think it safe to say this is one to go into your notebooks and a horse which will be winning a Group 1 race this season or next. Impressive.

    Sergei Prokofiev was third in that race.

    Accidental Agent was a surprise 33/1 winner of the . . .

    I know some people who actually bet on the colour of the hat that the Queen will wear on each day of Royal Ascot. But then I also know someone who used to bet on two flies crawling up a window or, one crazy day, which of the four of us could kick a football the furthest distance across the River Thames - without any thought of how the winner of the bet would recover the balls. I lost, thankfully.

    I am selective with my selections, including at Ascot. It's tempting to bet on loads of horses but that way . . .

  • So the World Cup has begun and what have we learned so far?

    Cristiano Ronaldo is reliable at penalty taking, great at free kicks and perfect at diving. Nobody cons referees like Ronaldo. He has it off to a fine art.

    Something Gerard Pique should have known only too well before he went close to Ronaldo just outside the penalty area and in the dying minutes of the thrilling 3-3 draw between Spain and Portugal.

    Pique offered Ronaldo the opportunity to fall down, pretending there had been contact and so fooling a gullible ref for the second time in . . .

    While our winner on Thursday, Sea of Class, was already known to be classy, trainer William Haggas admits he must now move her up in class of race to see just how good the filly is. She looks good and is one to keep in hour notebook or race tracker.

    As is Pablo Escobarr. Members know how much I loathe losing a race by a whisker and the son of Galileo was beaten by a head at Haydock on Thursday night. He’ll be winning a race sooner rather than later so put that one in your notebook.

    It’s Royal Ascot next week. Hurrah!

    I am not interested in all the fashion nonsense that receives so much television coverage. It is the horses I want to see and there are some top class thoroughbreds booked to take their place at Ascot from Tuesday.

    I will be in touch with members of VG Tips in plenty of time for day 1 of racing at Ascot and also alert them to my other fancies later in the week.

    I welcome all those who have signed up recently, including punters who have taken advantage of the half price annual membership . . .

  • Allow me to scream. Let me get this out of my system. I DON’T BELIEVE IT!!!

    No sooner had I finished typing up my World Cup analysis and tips for members of VG Tips - which I have been doing from dawn and for 12 hours - then Spain sack their national football team manager 24 hours before the tournament begins and two days before Spain play their opening match against Portugal.

    What kind of tournament suicide is this? Yes, I know the governing body of Spanish football was annoyed that, having signed a contract extension with them only last month . . .

    Sometimes backing a horse in any race can come down to a choice between two, regardless of how many run. Those races for which the bookies have two priced up the same or similar; toss of a coin races, as I call them.

    There’s a few of those on Saturday, especially at Haydock. When the choice is between two, you either call it right and seem like a genius or spend the rest of the day kicking yourself because the other one went and won. Decisions, decisions!

    I’d like to welcome those who have joined VG Tips most . . .

    I know that some punters refuse to believe me when I say that less can equal more, but it's true.

    Last weekend, for the best quality racing on offer on Saturday, I targeted specific races, including the Derby. Existing members know that we won backing my NAP, Masar, at odds of 20/1. That was a joy to watch. My confidence in Masar being justified was more pleasing than the financial returns. The same applied to my 20/1 ante-post selection Roaring Lion (also tipped the night before racing, each way, when 9/1), which finished third.
