  • Racing Tips Friday – Royal Ascot Day 4

    By on 18th June 2020

    Wow! STRADIVARIUS wins a third Ascot Gold Cup for his owner, trainer, jockey and members of VG Tips.

    He didn't so much win the race as obliterate the opposition. Stradivarius has never won that race by a margin of ten lengths. Or any race come to that. I loved the way Frankie Dettori looked over his shoulder twice as they came around the bend. He had to look twice because he could not believe those behind him were already beaten. He knew he could overtake what was in front of him and when he pressed the button . . .

  • Racing Tips Thursday – Royal Ascot Day 3

    By on 17th June 2020

    Two winners and two placed each way selections on day one. Two winners and three each way profitable punts on day two. Not bad. Not brilliant (at least not when compared to last year. Must do better. But there are three days left of Royal Ascot and plenty more competitive racing to sink our teeth into.

    The high draw is definitely proving beneficial in the handicaps, as expected. Some horses racing for the first time this season because of the sport being suspended since March have been ring rusty, as expected. They would have had a run in March, April . . .

  • Racing Tips Wednesday – Royal Ascot Day 2

    By on 16th June 2020

    What a finish to my first race on Tuesday. Literally on the nod, Terebellum is beaten by Circus Maximus.

    A thrilling race to the post which the more experienced Circus Maximus (my original choice on Sunday) won, just, and at a good price of 4/1. What a drift in the betting market that was from a price of 9/4. He was definitely value at 4/1. I think it goes without saying that had 4/1 been on offer on Monday, I would not have been changing my mind and would have been sticking with the eventual winner . . .

  • Royal Ascot Day 1 Tuesday

    By on 15th June 2020

    Royal Ascot will be very different. Less pomp. No outrageous outfits. Six more races across the week than is usual. No horses from outside of the UK allowed to take part in handicaps - so expect more home bred winners than usual.

    Due to the earlier suspension of racing in the UK and Ireland, many horses will arrive at Ascot without having had the benefit of a race so far this season. Not ideal preparation for the trainers. Some horses will love the fact that there are no spectators (Battaash in particular). Others might miss the crowds.

    Regardless of how many . . .

    Friday night saw SISKIN win for us once again. This time it was the Irish 2000 Guineas. Racing over a mile for the first time proved to be no problem. The colt that was unbeaten over 6 furlongs came from behind to challenge in the final furlong and raced away to lead 100 yards from the post. It was an impressive performance.

    Earlier in the day, the two selections at Kempton Park also won for us. II'S A GIVEN was an 11/10 tip the day before racing while 4/6 tip DUBAI MIRAGE . . .

    I am getting ahead of myself on behalf of members because I want to spend Sunday and Monday concentrating on the cards for Royal Ascot next week. That high quality racing comes thick and fast for five consecutive days and the meeting requires plenty of form study. We did well there last year but, as all tipsters and punters know, you are only considered as good as your last bet. One day or week you are a hero, the next you might be thought of as a no nothing numpty. The truth is usually somewhere in between.

    Before then we . . .

    Another one to add to our notebooks or tracker is our second place runner at Kempton on Wednesday, the Richard Hughes trained Karabina. I've watched the race again and think this will be a future winner for Hughes. The colt was only beaten half a length yesterday and, on a day where others let me down, the 12/1 each way tip doubled my stake.

    It really has been the oddest start to a flat season I have witnessed. If I thought it was just me, I'd load a gun. But trainers, jockeys, owners and fellow punters are . . .

  • Racing Review and Preview – message to members

    By on 10th June 2020

    So the first week of racing post resumption is over. What took your eye? As I have written at the head of my preview for racing on Wednesday, there have been several early season upsets. Races in which the favourites were beaten and the bookies were happy.

    LOVE (photographed above) won the 1000 Guineas and did so with ease. 6/4 is a short price for her to win the Oaks next month but the manner in which she won on Sunday makes you wonder what can beat her. My only concern about Love in past . . .

    I am currently writing an appraisal of the first week of racing returning from its suspension in March.

    The performances that grabbed me, regardless of whether or not they took place at a meeting for which I offered selections. There were quite a few taking performances last week and names of horses to place in your notebook or online tracker. I will mention those names in that private message to members.

    I shall also put my hands up to the selections I got wrong. Especially so last Sunday. But the crucial thing is I know where I went wrong. On . . .

    I have decided to send out Sunday's selections to members of VG Tips before racing on Saturday gets going, Mainly so that they can take advantage of any early prices which they may find attractive.

    I have decided upon my own favourite bets (the NAPS). Some days they deliver while on other race days they let me down and the other selections return profit. Short of having a crystal ball, you can never be sure which day is which.

    For me it is always about the price. The potential value on offer. For example, is something priced at 3 . . .
