    It's always nice to begin a day of betting with a winner.

    Smokey Bear did that for us at Newbury when justifying my confidence at odds of 9/4. As I mentioned to subscribers to VG Tips last night, Smokey Bear had previously finished second in a race that had thrown up subsequent handicap winners. So the clues were there.

    It was third time lucky for Tabarrak. Hurrah! My patience with the two time runner up paid off, albeit the best price available was . . .

    MORISCO got Thursday off to a wining start for members of VG Tips. My 6/4 tip was dropping in Class of race and won the opening race at Ayr with something to spare. But, did you see the fast finishing 9/1 each way newcomer Salamanca School? Put that Mark Johnston colt in your notebook. I was hopeful of a good run and subscribers who prefer to back horses each way got some profit when Salamanca School fairly steamed home into third. That one will want to race over further next time out and I . . .

  • Who takes your penalties was so simple back in the day. At Chelsea, for example. Up would step Frank Lampard and the only shock would be if he didn't find the back of the net from the penalty spot. He almost always did. Likewise James Milner at Liverpool.

    Going further back in time, you could rest assured that Bobby Charlton would score penalties for Manchester United while Francis Lee would, when fit to play, take the responsibility at Manchester City.

    Now, at some clubs, it's as though we are back in the playground at school. Players squabble with . . .

    What a fabulous couple of days of racing we witnessed last weekend.

    The sun shone down on Leopardstown on Saturday. The rain poured down on the Curragh on Sunday. Regardless of the weather, the Irish racing crowd enjoyed the two meetings in Dublin. Each offered quality racing and, for members of VG Tips, some tasty returns.

    In summary, I enjoyed the . . .

  • Last weekend saw both teams to score bets pay out in the games between Wolves and Chelsea at odds of 4/5 and QPR against Luton Town at odds of 8/13.

    There were also winning tips for VG Tips members via my selections for Sunderland to win at odds of 23/20, Leeds to win at Barnsley at 4/7 and for Bristol City to heap more misery on Stoke with victory at a very nice price of 13/5.

    In Scotland, Roebrt Ryan selected both teams to score for the Friday night game between Arbroath and Partick Thistle . . .

    The best horses won the feature races in England and Ireland on Saturday. Favourite backers were happy.

    Logician won very nicely. It was a long way from being a quality St Leger at Doncaster but Logician was a class apart from the opposition and gave Frankie Dettori his 15th Group 1 winner in the past summer alone. Extraordinary. Frankie has just got better and better and please don't tell me he only wins because he's on the best horses. There's many a jockey that would not have won some of those races were they on the same . . .

    Friday began well when, as I suggested to members, Breathalyze had the beating of Cognac. 7/4 was an even better winning price than the odds on offer the night before. Always nice when that happens.

    Stradivarius had an even easier win than anticipated when chief rival Dee Ex Bee was withdrawn from the Group 2 Doncaster Cup Stakes due to the ever drying ground. A comfortable victory meant Stradivarius secured the stayers' triple crown of race wins this season. He's a beauty!

    Alligator Alley got wound up in the stalls prior to the start of the Flying Childer . . .

    At the time of writing, Enbihaar was a winning NAP. Selected when available to members at odds of 11/8, Enbihaar came out on top in a hard fought finish to the Class 1, Group 2 Park Hill Stakes and won at an SP price of 6/5.

    The 7/1 each way selection for the following race, a competitive handicap, was Repartee. That one finished second behind Kings Lynn, a good looking winner owned by the Queen.

    Good Birthday was a non runner, leaving the 4.55 race open for the mentioned in dispatches Davydenko to win.

    Two withdrawals . . .

    Last Saturday saw newcomer Cherokee Trail, a 4/1 tip to members of VG Tips, win at Ascot. I highlighted that winner purely based on pedigree. I am a great believer in breeding. If you have little or no form to go on, pedigree matters. As I told subscribers to my selection service, Cherokee Trail is a son of War Front and his mother, Moth, was third in the Group 1, 1000 Guineas and fourth in the Group 1 Oaks. So this newcomer winning a Class 4 Novice Stakes was a good bet.

    7/1 tip Hello Youmzain won the . . .

  • We're not going to retire on the returns - at least I'm not - but I was happy that the 'dirty dozen' 12 teams to win Euro 2020 International accumulator paid out. Two members of VG Tips found a best price of 3.7/1. I got a little less than that as I am persona non grata with the bookie Peter and Alun were able to bet with.

    After all these years of profitable punting, my online bookie options are very much reduced from the old days. Only two still welcome my business on a regular basis, largely thanks . . .
