    Thanks for the messages of celebration regarding Saturday's 10/1 winning tip, Thundering Blue. For the third time the beautiful looking, late running grey delivered winnings to members of VG Tips. I love him. Connections say his next outing may be in a Group 1 race at York in August.

    Although it was very much on the other side of London from where I was brought up, my late race loving father took us to Goodwood most summers. Four boys and mum, sat up on that hill. Not so much the cheap seats as the free seats with a . . .

    The weather is changing in the UK. At last. While this may concern you regarding a planned BBQ or outing, for us punters it means Saturday is a case of 'buyer beware.'

    So much of the recent racing has been on Good to Firm ground - for several weeks.

    Now there is a chance we will see ground conditions described as Good, Good to Soft or even Soft.

    The Met Office suggest the heaviest rainfall will be in the north of England, including up at York and Chester.

    But thunderstorms are also forecast down south at the likes of Ascot and . . .

    If people ever wonder why I don't back horses at ludicrously short prices, surely they will know for sure after today.

    The highly fancied 4/9 favourite Goddess finishes plumb last of six at Leopardstown. Now perhaps something was wrong with her and all will be revealed by trainer Aidan O'Brien in due course. But it is further proof that you cannot be backing horses at short odds on prices based on one previous run, no matter how impressive that vast margin win was.

    La Peolosa and Ghostwatch were other odds on (SP) losers on the day, the . . .

    I am writing a new three part series of articles on what it takes to be a profitable punter at the end of each calendar year. Read part 1 by clicking on this link.

    How do you react when you go on a bad run of punting? Admittedly, I've had a poor couple of weeks after a very good spring. You can't win all the time. Every punter has a bad run, but it's how you react to . . .

    So how do you like to bet?

    Are you, like me, someone who prefers to look for something at a big each way price and take a chance on that one winning (as per my 22/1 and 20/1 winners of both the English and Irish Derby?)

    Or are you a win only punter?

    I am both. I will always prefer taking money from the satchel of a bookie via one at a double figure price, on each way terms, regardless of whether that horse wins or simply finishes in the frame and returns me some tasty profit.

    A 7/2 winner is not to be sniffed at.

    As suggested to members of VG Tips, the talented jockey Rachel Richardson ensured that my 7/2 tip last night, Gullane One, led from start to finish to win at Hamilton.

    Desert Fire also won on the day but I told members I would not be touching the 1/7 favourite at Leicester as that sort of price is too short for my personal betting tastes. Compared to the ludicrous SP price of 1/16, Desert Fire was almost value at 1/7!

    Why offer tips at such odds if . . .

    The Cheltenham Gold Cup is to be sponsored by a company that produces cider. It used to be sponsored by a champagne. Is this a sign of the race appealing more to those who drink cheaper booze at Prestbury Park? Probably not.

    I don't bother too much with who sponsors races. I loathe seeing traditional sponsors lose their gig, only for it to be handed over to one of the big online bookmakers.

    I shall forever call the Gold Cup at Newbury the Hennessy Gold Cup. No amount of people telling me that Ladbrokes now sponsor the race will . . .

    Alpha Centauri once again proved she is classy when easily winning the Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket on Friday. Her third consecutive Group 1 victory so far this season.

    As members of VG Tips know, personally I am not one to bet odds on unless I believe the early price on offer does itself reflect value even when odds on. That was the case yesterday when I wrote to members about the Falmouth Stakes. At 8/15 Aplha Centauri was definitely a bet. She won at SP odds of only 4/9. I was on at the first price. I would . . .
