    Nice when a newcomer wins a maiden for members of VG Tips. There was precious little previous form to go on for the Class 4 maiden at Sandown. Only three of the fourteen due to go to post had raced before and they had each only raced once.

    So I took a chance on the John Gosden trained, Frankie Dettori ridden PALACE PIER, a son of Kingman. Not only did Palace Pier win, he did so by just under four lengths and was going away at the finish of that race over 7 furlongs. Expect Palace Pier to . . .

    After an excellent week of profitable punting at the York Ebor meeting, and winners elsewhere in the UK and in Ireland, the temptation for punters who have made money one week when the racing was of good quality, is to then bet on poor quality meetings the week after.

    Patience is crucial if you want to beat the bookie at the year end, each and every year. Bank your winnings. Do not leave them loitering in your online bookie account. You might be tempted to have a bet on something you shouldn't. It's hat the bookies hop you . . .

    That was a memorable day at York.

    Those who were in attendance to see the 5 furlong course record broken by Battaash will always remember what they witnessed. The course record long held by the mighty Dayjur wasn't so much broken as smashed to smithereens. I am only sorry I opposed our last time out winner Battaash today. I was far from alone in doubting him because of his previous record on the Knavesmire. He made fools of us today, that's for sure.

    Battaash was guilty of misbehaving earlier in his career but he does seem to have . . .

    What's your tipple today?

    Mine is Mums Tipple, a winning NAP tipped to members last night when priced 8/1 and a winner by a whopping 11 length on the day. The SP odds a mere 7/2, and yet still value.

    I believe I adequately explained to members why I so fancied the two year old colt that had previously raced once, winning by a neck that day. I liked what I saw in that debut victory but it was the excitement that trainer Richard Hannon could not contain when talking about Mums Tipple that led to my . . .

    The first race on Wednesday saw Dakota Gold please favourite backers who steamed in on the day and ensured the horse that won at Ripon only last Saturday, won again despite carrying a five pound penalty. I wasn't on but I'm delighted punters on course and off bashed the bookie with that winner.

    My 16/1 each way tip Arecibo may well have finished closer than a three quarter length third with an earlier clear run. But I am just as content with placed profit at those odds as I would be had I backed the 4/1 . . .

    Saturday went well with four winners and one selection returning placed profit from six races selected.

    It's always good to hear back from members old and new and I am grateful to Peter for taking time out to write a detailed e-mart, part of which includes these complimentary comments:-

    "It has been a great few months following you since joining and a very sustainable incline on the profit. It has been a great journey so far since joining you just 3 months ago. The betting bank is ×4 of my original stake and I have no money . . .

    QUADRILATERAL was a 7/1 winner for members of VG Tips today. I got a nice angle on that one!

    Those who took the early price about my NAP in the opening race at Newbury got the best returns. The daughter of Frankel won first time on a racecourse and came past the post at SP odds of 7/2. Once again, the early bird punters caught the most value.

    At the time I am writing, SOUTHERN FRANCE also justified my faith and Ryan Moore rode a confidence boosting Group 3 winner.

    The final selection of Friday has yet to . . .

    It looks as though there will be plenty of horses vying for star billing at York racecourse next week.

    I wish I could be at my favourite track to see the likes of Enable, Crystal Ocean, Stradivarius and Elarqam, to name just four of the stars of the flat season so far. This may well be be the last time Enable will be seen on a UK racecourse.

    I've long enjoyed this meeting which culminates with the Ebor Handicap a week on Saturday. People ask why I am such a fan of York racecourse. I think I fell in . . .

    If you're going to Ascot on Saturday, enjoy. I will not even be watching the Shergar Cup on telly. It's the Mickey Mouse Cup of racing. The equivalent of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy in football. Or whatever they call that competition these days.

    I have explained previously why I do like this event that was dreamt up a few years ago, but imagined as something quite different from how the meeting is now organised. Even the quality of horses racing there tomorrow is down on past years.

    The Shergar Cup exists for the Public Relations people to . . .

    I'd like to welcome Gill to VG Tips. He's signed up for life! Wise man. If you are going to be punting for years to come, he's bagged the bargain of them all.

    As I am fond of saying, profitable punting is a marathon and not a sprint. I'm into my third decade of doing it for real. I first spent a couple of years playing with pretend money, followed by very small stakes, to learn my craft and discover where, when and on what I had the most success when it came to racing.
