    By on 20th November 2019

    Last weekend was informative. After the Saturday successes of Happy Diva, Faugheen and Wholestone, Sunday saw Punchestown selections Stormy Ireland and Battleoverdoyen win for us at short prices.

    Arguably the most impressive win came at Cheltenham when Defi Du Seuil came up the Cheltenham hill like the little fighter we know him to be. I am content to have taken the 16/1 each way price for him on offer before that race for the Champion Chase at the festival next March. There's still some double figure prices around for that race. I do hope trainer Phillip Hobbs enters . . .

    HAPPY DIVA was a 16/1 winning NAP for myself and members of VG Tips on Saturday. The SP price of 14/1 was still great value for a mare I was confident would be involved in the finish of the feature race of the day, the competitive Grade 3 Bet Victor Gold Cup Handicap Chase.

    Thank you to all those subscribers who sent me messages of joy. I am still catching up with them. What pleases me most about these is that it is clear many members of VG Tips do what I ask. Namely . . .

  • Racing goes ahead at Cheltenham on Saturday. Friday was lost to a waterlogged track but plenty of hard work by the Clerk of the Course and his staff have ensured that only minor alterations have been made to the obstacles for Saturday and Sunday.

    Trainers need this meeting to go ahead and get a run into their better horses as prep for the Cheltenham Festival next March. It's also needed for us punters to get a look at those who are likely to be aimed at bigger races later in the season, not only at Cheltenham.

    Watching the racing . . .

  • Cheltenham Racing Friday November 15 OFF

    By on 13th November 2019

    Hello one and all,

    For those who are not following me on Twitter @betonsportstips and have therefore not seen my alert regarding racing at Cheltenham on Friday...
    the meeting is OFF!

    This is a great disappointment to me, to punters everywhere and to those who own, train and ride the horses. The November meeting at Prestbury Park is the one that gives us clues as to which horses may peak come Christmas at Kempton Park, or the Cheltenham Festival next March.

    After a deluge of rain on Wednesday and overnight into Thursday, I am not surprised Cheltenham is . . .

    It is perhaps ironic that the last decent flat meeting of the season has been abandoned due to a waterlogged racecourse. A shame for those who run Doncaster but clearly, after the rainfall in South Yorkshire on Thursday, there was no way racing could take place tomorrow.

    The National Hunt meetings had better go ahead. As per usually for a Friday, I have spent literally all day studying the form for three jump meetings. Two in England and one in Ireland, plus there is some decent racing on Sunday.

    After 11 hours of studying the racing for the next two . . .

    Luck. It's a word that is no stranger to all those who have ever had a flutter on football or horse racing.

    Years ago I recall offering two double figure each way tips in a competitive jumps race. Coming to the last fence, we were going to collect. The only question would be which of my two would win and which would come second. They were so far clear of the third horse you couldn't see that one on the television screen. The 33/1 and 16/1 tips approached the last obstacle tired, but clearly one of . . .

    There was plenty to take out of the racing late last week and over the weekend.

    Vinndication was excellent in winning the Sodexo Gold Cup at Ascot on Saturday. Bookies cut his price for the Cheltenham Gold Cup in March. 33/1 is now the best price.

    On Sunday, at Carlisle, Lostintranslation jumped magnificently. He didn't touch a twig of a fence and his jump at the final fence was beautiful on the eye. 8/1 is the best ante-post price on offer about Lostintranslation for the Gold Cup at Cheltenham but were I betting ante-post, I . . .

    So far this past week, including on Friday and for tomorrow, Saturday, there are some star names of the jump racing circuit who have, or are, making their return to racing for the first time this season.

    I have swerved some of those races because we cannot as yet know which of those top class horses will be fit enough to win first time out. At this very early stage of the jumps season I prefer to watch these horses race and see how they perform with an eye to the coming weeks and months.

    Trainer Gordon Elliott had an . . .

    The weather played havoc with racing last weekend. Good looking flat meetings at Newbury and Doncaster were abandoned after a deluge of rain.

    Cheltenham went ahead and my two tips there both won. Quel Destin, tipped at 9/2, did the business for members and trainer Paul Nicholls.

    I was especially pleased at taking the early price of 6/1 about Saint Calvados. Here's what members of VG Tips were told the day before racing:-

    "Saint Calvados has not raced for 227 days but has won in past years when returning to racing after even longer absences. He . . .

    DANCING HARRY won for members of https://vgtips.co.uk/vgtips-sign-up/ at odds of 16/1. It was the fact that he's a son of Camelot that led to my offering that as an each way alternative to favourite Bright Eyed Eagle at Newbury. The fav finished third but Dancing Harry was impressive when pulling away to win late in his very first race.

    I had told members of how I had missed the 8/1 win by Brentford Hope . . .
