    By on 10th October 2019

    You know the winter jumps season is approaching when race meetings are abandoned due to racecourses being waterlogged.

    It can be an inconvenience to the larger courses but can be life and death to those racecourses that have fewer meetings throughout the year. In recent days both Salisbury and Ayr have lost fixtures due to too much rain.

    Looking at the forecast for Ireland and the West of the UK on Friday, we could see other meetings called off. Chepstow must be at risk if the weather forecast I have seen is accurate.

    Courses in the East of England should . . .

    I write this prior to the two Friday selections going to post.

    Saturday and Sunday sees some top class racing in England and France.

    The reason I shy away from the races other than the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe is that they contain so many French bred horses I know much less about. Horses that do most or all of their racing in their native France and so are more experienced with French racecourses.

    While some of the supporting races at Longchamp on Saturday and Sunday do include UK horses we are used to seeing, and in some . . .

    Last weekend went well. Choosing the first two home in a 30 runner handicap is bound to please me and it's not as rare an event as some may think.

    Indeed, perhaps I should have been placing Lord North and Beringer in a reverse or straight forecast for the ultra competitive Class 2 Cambridgeshire handicap at Newmarket. After all, long time followers of mine know how much I relish the challenge of trying to find profit in such big field races.

    Lord North was 9/1 the night before racing and was heavily punted on the day. So much . . .

    DAAHYEH won on Friday and did so at a respectable price of 11/8 in the Group 2 Rockfel Stakes. Our Royal Ascot winner went in again and that can only support the form of one running in a Group 1 race on Saturday and which is one of my NAPS on a busy day of good racing.

    The Saturday card at Newmarket has some mouthwatering races in prospect and a massive field Class 2 handicap. I have taken hours and hours over studying the form of the latter.

    Benbatl proved me wrong on Friday. A horse that . . .

    Thursday got off to a good start when 11/4 tip when MASCAT toughed out a win in a Class 4 maiden.

    It's nice when research pays off. A close fought end to the race between Mascat and Discovery Island backed up what I alerted members to the night before racing. Here's what I said: "Two that followed home the now highly thought of Palace Pier are also in this race. At Sandown last month it was the Harry Bentley ridden Mascat that got closest to the impressive Palace Pier. The colt was a three . . .

    As we prepare to welcome in October, one side of my betting mind begins to think about winter racing over the jumps.

    The prospect of a new National Hunt season always excites. October is the only month of the year when I straddle both codes of racing. We can look forward to flat racing at Newmarket and, on the 19th, Champions Day at Ascot.

    As the new jumps season proper gets underway, I will be looking at the October cards for racing at Chesptow, Punchestown and Aintree, among others.

    Come November, it's jumps racing all the way through winter . . .

    It's always nice to begin a day of betting with a winner.

    Smokey Bear did that for us at Newbury when justifying my confidence at odds of 9/4. As I mentioned to subscribers to VG Tips last night, Smokey Bear had previously finished second in a race that had thrown up subsequent handicap winners. So the clues were there.

    It was third time lucky for Tabarrak. Hurrah! My patience with the two time runner up paid off, albeit the best price available was . . .

    MORISCO got Thursday off to a wining start for members of VG Tips. My 6/4 tip was dropping in Class of race and won the opening race at Ayr with something to spare. But, did you see the fast finishing 9/1 each way newcomer Salamanca School? Put that Mark Johnston colt in your notebook. I was hopeful of a good run and subscribers who prefer to back horses each way got some profit when Salamanca School fairly steamed home into third. That one will want to race over further next time out and I . . .

    What a fabulous couple of days of racing we witnessed last weekend.

    The sun shone down on Leopardstown on Saturday. The rain poured down on the Curragh on Sunday. Regardless of the weather, the Irish racing crowd enjoyed the two meetings in Dublin. Each offered quality racing and, for members of VG Tips, some tasty returns.

    The best horses won the feature races in England and Ireland on Saturday. Favourite backers were happy.

    Logician won very nicely. It was a long way from being a quality St Leger at Doncaster but Logician was a class apart from the opposition and gave Frankie Dettori his 15th Group 1 winner in the past summer alone. Extraordinary. Frankie has just got better and better and please don't tell me he only wins because he's on the best horses. There's many a jockey that would not have won some of those races were they on the same . . .
