  • Two trainers I respect and who are as honest as the day is long, continued their good run of form on Thursday.

    Willie Haggas has his string in great form right now and he had two winners at Doncaster. As did the ever likeable Ralph Beckett.

    Before the race that saw his St Leger winner of last year return to Doncaster, the venue of her greatest victory, Beckett said that Simple Verse had produced her best piece of work for months only last . . .

  • I spent a very wet but profitable Friday at York. It's always good to begin the day with a winner and, as with Stormy Clouds on Thursday, my opening fancy on Friday duly delivered. I was pleasantly surprised that the 11/2 and 5/1 available online the night before was also available on course come the day. I duly took advantage.

    What lesson are we reminded of by Stormy Clouds and Barsanti? If they are dropping back down in grade of race, having performed with credit at a higher level, sit up and take notice.

    Nemoralia was another . . .

  • Stormy Clouds won for members at odds of 10/1 and 9/1. It reassuring that so many of them have learned how to read my analysis to gauge my confidence about any one selection.

    I really fancied that Richard Hannon trained winner in the opening race on Thursday. Sometimes the form book does not lie. The third place finish behind our recent winner Mrs Danvers was a good piece of form and the drop in grade today ensured that Stormy Clouds won with something to spare.

    It will look stormy at York on Friday. Heavy rain is forecast from . . .

  • Postponed made it six wins from the last six outings on Wednesday. The form of that race looks strong, with Highland Reel finishing well  in second place.

    Wings of Desire was hugely disappointing and it's hard to see that one going forward to the St.Leger at Doncaster next month. That means Idaho - which won well for us on Wednesday - the hot favourite for that last big Group 1 race of the domestic flat season.

    Best of Days ran green second time out on the day and was just beaten at the line by a 16/1 outsider, so . . .
