  • SWEET SELECTION wins the Cesarewith for members and lives up to her name. 10/1 when offered up as one of the each way selections, the fact the filly was 17 pounds ahead of the handicapper was what really attracted me to her. That and the jockey booking. The clues were there, staring me in the face and I am very glad I spotted them. For you and me.

    The Cashel Man, another each way selection when priced at 16/1, finished fourth. So returning further profit in a race in which I seem to do well most years.

    So . . .

  • The form of the Aidan O'Brien stable goes from strength to strength. I did consider suggesting to members that they back Rhodendron and Hydrangea as a 1-2 straight forecast on Friday. Member David tells me he did precisely that. Will done that man!

    I tipped Rhodendron to win and an each way saver on stablemate Hydrangea. The odds when selected were 9/2 and 6/1 respectively, so it was profit all round in that race.

    Earlier, Mrs Danvers proved to be as classy as thought and took a step up in class in her stride to win . . .

  • While we have some top grade feature races to look forward to on Saturday, it's clear from Friday's cards that some horses have run their best race of the season as we approach what is the fag end of the flat season proper.

    There are lots of seasoned, respectable horses racing on Friday but you cannot help but suspect their best performances are behind them - at least until May 2017.

    But the quantity of big field handicaps offer myself and any fellow each way backers the opportunity to bet on a few at double figure prices. They may . . .

  • We are at that stage of the racing year when I shall soon be turning my back on the flat and concentrating on the National Hunt season as it begins for real.

    What we have in the meantime is some truly awful flat racing on offer in the UK each Monday to Thursday. Never more have my 'Something for the Weekend' selections been a more appropriate title.

    Yes, you can bet in low grade races at the likes of Wolverhampton, Newcastle and Windsor during each week if you want to. After all, that is what the bookies want you to . . .

  • You get what you pay for in this life. I have long been amazed at some people think the same service or object should be for sale at the same price despite the passing of many years.

    Trainer Willie Mullins raised his prices for the first time in ages this week and Michael O'Leary (of Ryanair fame) promptly removed 60 of his horses from the Mullins yard. Incredible!

    But then you realise we are talking about two men who do business in totally different ways. Willie Mullins, the most respected of Irish trainers who still doffs his hat in . . .

  • I love it when we get an odds on favourite beaten via a double figure priced selection.

    Spain Burg won for us at odds of 16/1. The French raider was ridden by Frankie Dettori - his second winner for us at Newmarket on Friday after Journey won earlier in the day, with something to spare, at 6/4.

    Frankie was impressed by Spain Burg which had a great turn of foot and easily beat Fair Eva - which let down odds on backers once again.

    Spain Burg will be nothing like 16/1 the next time out, so I am glad . . .

  • Another of Frankel's children won first time out on Friday. And, for once, his progeny won at a decent price. His colt called Eminent was backed in from 12/1 to 6/1 and won the opener at Newmarket by two and three quarter lengths.

    The initial price will have put off some punters (including this one). But we were wrong to avoid him simply because of the price. The horse doesn't know his price, does he? And it is always worth putting ahead of the price the pedigree of the newcomer. And a pedigree comes no better . . .

  • A few days without an internet connection made me wonder how us punters managed in the time before the worldwide web and all its wonders and annoyances.

    We went to the bookie on the High Street, of course. I was still doing that in 1997. I would walk to the corner of my road and savour the dubious delights of a smoke filled bookmakers shop with its usual collection of regulars.

    On the good days, you would find yourself at a racecourse and be using a proper, on course bookie. That remains my preferred choice of where to place a . . .

  • Impulsive American won for us on Friday at odds of 5/2. But the one I was truly gutted at was Raheen House being beaten by a neck at Newbury. I really fancied that one. The race was decimated by the weather and several horses being withdrawn. Nevertheless, I loathe being beat by a neck. I'd rather lose by a mile!

    Tipsters and punters are divided on the importance of which stall a horse is drawn in at certain racecourses and for particular races.

    Should you factor in the draw when choosing your selection? How much store do you . . .
