    I am sorry to see that only three days after I e-mailed members of VG Tips with my analysis of the 23 runner Ladbrokes Trophy Chase that takes place at Newbury on Saturday, the race has now cut up to the extent of only 14 being set to go to post.

    This is the former Hennessy Gold Cup, a race that always contained lots of runners and was all the more exciting and competitive for that.

    14 runners is a poor turnout for such a once prestigous race. Those who run racing in the UK really need to get . . .

    WHAT A GREY DAY!

    4 grey horses win 4 very good races and 2 of them for members of VG Tips. CAID DU LIN was a 16/1 (NAP) winner for me and my followers. I was so pleased with that win, not only because of the big price, but because my research into that race and belief in the horse was justified. A good spot, if I say so myself.

    That was the second winner of the day for jockey Sam Twiston-Davies who also rode the grey POLITOLOGUE to victory for us. A 6/5 tip to members . . .

    Three winners from five races selected on Friday. Wenyereadyfreddie was a 6/5 tip last night and won at a shorter SP price. Al Dancer was 4/5 when members were alerted and that one also came home first at a much shorter price. My NAP at Ffos Las was Penn Lane. I took the 11/4 on offer when I advised members of VG Tips and was pleased to see that one triumph at SP of 5/2. As I have said many times, the early bird punter catches the greater profit.

    The one that got away, and in . . .

    The Betfair Chase takes place at Haydock Park this Saturday. A race I have attended often and it always pours down when I go. The Met Office says it will not do so this year.

    I have tipped the winner a few times in recent years but the race has always been on Good to Soft, Soft or Heavy going. It looks like this weekend we could have that rare beast at Haydock, actual good ground. Unless the Clerk of the Course decides to put shed loads of water on the course, we may be having to look . . .

    Midweek racing ain't what it used to be, that's for sure.

    Tuesday's were always terrible when it came to quality but, in more recent times, Wednesday and Thursday are not days to get too excited about when it comes to punting (unless there is a top class festival taking place).

    Tomorrow is all about speculation. There are some decent meetings at Chepstow, Warwick and Hexham but in so many races horses are returning to racing for the first time this season, or racing in the UK for the first time, or racing for new stables or going . . .

    At the time of writing on Saturday, four races have taken place at Cheltenham.

    The BetVictor Gold Cup was an incident packed race. Only six finished. Lots of hard luck stories including Rather Be, eho was going well when brought down by another faller - one of many who came to earth in the race. Here’s hoping they are all well.

    Earlier in the day, Cracker Factory, a 7/1 each way tip, finished second so ensuring you got your stake back plus a little profit.

    The second selection of the day was also a runner up. But, at 8 . . .

    We won the first at Cheltenham on Friday when 11/2 tip The Young Master won with something to spare. Sky Pirate, my other each way choice in that race, may well have won but for being brought down by another horse two fences from home.

    After that... no joy.

    Double Treasure surpsingly pulled up while Tiger Roll was clearly anchored by his heavy weight in the Cross Country race. As trainer Gordon Elliot said, Tiger Roll finished well in fourth and when he returns to Cheltenham in December and/or March, he will do so from level weights.

    You know winter is coming when the November meeting at Cheltenham is upon us.

    Dry weather is forecast for the three day meeting and I will be in touch with members old, new and returnees for all three days of a competitive race meeting.

    Of course, it is still very early in the jumps season and some of those horses racing tomorrow are not expected to win by their trainers. They are being entered to get a race into them prior to potential big targets in the weeks ahead and with one eye in the Cheltenham Festival next March - the . . .

    It was two winners from three selections on Thursday. I was pleased La Bague Au Roi won at odds of 15/8. But, as most of you know by now, I’m always trying to find one at a bigger price and looking for potential value in the betting market is my aim.

    There are obvious short priced winners in the first two races over in Ireland at Naas on Saturday (Rhinestone and Footpad) but the odds on prices are too short to interest me. You could play a win only double, I suppose.

    Too many odds on favourites lose . . .
