    You never grow accustomed to being beaten by a short head. 16/1 each way tip Mayleaf Shine was beaten by that margin on Friday. But that's why I always advocate each way bets at such odds. Unlucky to just finish second at Ayr, at least we punters still made profit from the race.

    Earlier in the day my 7/4 Newbury NAP, Dirty Rascal, justified my confidence when winning at SP odds of 11/10.

    The best value winner was Exec Chef. Available at odds as big as 14/1 the night before racing - when members are advised . . .

    Last weekend proved to be a mixed bag and, sadly, the last day that we shall see two very fine horses take to the track.

    It was clear fairly early on that all was not well with the sensation of this past flat season, the Jessica Harrington trained Alpha Centauri. A clipped joint in her fetlock and the filly has, quite sensibly I believe, been retired. She won six of her ten starts earning over a million and a quarter pounds in prize money. She owes owners and bookies nothing. Her win at Ascot this past summer will live long . . .

  • The midweek winning bets included the draw between Ipswich and Brentford at a nice price of 11/4. There were also wins for Leeds at 10/11, Atletico Madrid at 4/5, Middlebrough at 5/11 and both teams to score Liverpool v PSG at odds of 4/9.

    Sheffield United could only draw so let down one of my accumulators. Cristiano Ronaldo getting sent off and Shakthar Donestk failing to win their game brought down the other one. Such is life. Onwards.

    So who still fancies Manchester City to win the Champions League? Not me. But then I'm . . .

  • Last weekend's domestic action delivered a mix bag for members of VG Tips.

    Single win bets included:- Crystal Palace win at 6/4 and Wilfried Zaha to score anytime for them at 23/10. Wins for Charlton at 27/10, Lincoln 11/10 and Brentford at 4/5. Both Teams To Score between Peterborough and Portsmouth also paid off at odds of 4/6.

    I'd like to welcome Douglas to VG Tips. Always good to welcome newcomers to my residential home for profitable punters. I promise to take as much care of him as I do others, including . . .

    NAPS. What are they all about?

    Take this weekend as an example.

    I'd love to tip some potential winners as my NAPS (favourite bets of the day as I interpret the word) but some are priced odds on.

    Is it right to tip a horse as a NAP when the best price is 4/5, 1/2 or such like? The general consensus is that it is not. Anyone, so some people say, can NAP an odds on winner.

    Well plenty of odds on shots lose races, so that's not strictly true.

    The horses most likely to win . . .

    The bookies had the best of things at Doncaster on Thursday, with favourites being beaten left, right and centre and mainly unfancied winners at prices as big as 33/1. I fired blanks. The only consolation being that I was far from alone. Not a good day for punters in South Yorkshire. But we will be back and exact revenge on the bookie before the weekend is over with.

    The win of Flattering today leads one to believe that the Aidan O'Brien stable may be back in form. 7 winners from his last 20 runners follows on from a . . .

  • What have we learned so far regarding the home nations countries competing in the Nations League?

    Marcus Rashford is still an exciting talent who does best with a Gareth Southgate arm around him rather than the scowl of club manager Jose Mourinho. Rashford looks to be the best goalscoring hope for England after Harry Kane, who looks to me as though he is running on  fumes. I have all the time in the world for Kane, especially his determination to play football come what may. But he look knackered to me in the last three England World Cup matches and . . .

    So far this week in racing, Chafer Grubs have been the most consistent winner of the day.

    Nasty looking creatures that eat away at racecourses and led to the meetings at Salisbury being called off on Tuesday, and the Thursday Epsom meeting also being abandoned.

    Put Chafer Grubs in your notebook! They clearly know how to get the best of things on some racecourses.

    Town Moor in Doncaster is home to one of the most historic racecourses in the UK and will once again stage the St Leger this coming Saturday. We've seen some controversial finishes to this end . . .
