    By on 5th June 2020

    For me this weekend represents the real start to the racing season. Proper, top quality racing on turf.

    The 2000 and 1000 Guineas have long been favourite races of mine, regardless of whether or not I find the winner. The races should have taken place at the beginning of May but this has to be a case of better late than never.

    The 2000 Guineas on Saturday features one of the stars of last season. You would have had to be miserable so and so to not be impressed by the manner in which Pinatubo performed last season. The most . . .

    I had a timely reminder of how, although we're all pleased to see sport returning, insignificant it is compared to the health of the nation. One long time member of VG Tips has lost his mother to Coronavirus. I passed on my condolences to him and felt a little guilty for writing to him with racing tips.

    It was also a reminder that having a day of betting with no returns from four races, due to horses being placed but not winning, is unimportant in the wider scheme of things. Disappointed though we may all be as punters when . . .

    2 winners and 2 second place finishers on Tuesday, one runner up beaten only by a short head.

    FIRST RECEIVER was the winning NAP and clearly the one to take out of today. Owned by the Queen, trained by Sir Michael Stoute and ridden by Ryan Moore, First Receiver won a modest Class 5 maiden by 7 lengths. Impressive and one to put into your notebook for the rest of the season.

    GALSWORTHY, an 11/10 tip yesterday, WON at an odds on price and jockey Frankie Dettori milked the victory. Celebrating by raising his arms . . .

    Well, what do you know. BRIAN THE SNAIL turns back time and wins for us. Tipped to subscribers when priced at 8/1, that shrewd trainer Richard Fahey had him ready to win for the first time in a year (the last time I tipped him).

    Brian the Snail was all out at the finish to win by a nose. That'll probably be his last victory for another year. The clues were there regarding today's performance. The fact that he was dropping in class of race compared to the majority of the eight races in which he had . . .

    It's back! At last, racing returns to the UK.

    Now don't be going mad. The first days are made up of all weather racing. Some of it very low grade. If you have been with me for a while you will know to be cautious if betting in Class 5 and Class 6 races. These are often made up of poor quality horses and are races which, were you to run the same race on five successive days, you would likely get five different winners.

    But we have to get back in the saddle somewhere and while I . . .

  • Newsletter for members only from Vernon

    By on 7th April 2020

    **Minutes after I mailed out the below Newsletter to members only, the British Horse Racing Authority announced that the Newmarket May meeting and the June Derby meeting at Epsom would not take place. At least not on the scheduled dates. It was also announced that should Royal Ascot take place in July, it would be staged behind closed doors.
