    The racing came so thick and fast on Thursday it was hard for me to keep up with it all.

    HONEST VIC, an 11/ each way NAP from me, has just won the lucky last at Kempton Park. It's always nice to spot one at a price bigger than I believe it should be in the betting market. That one stood out when I analysed the race and I am glad he justified the confidence I expressed and that lovely members of VG Tips such as Tania were on. As was I.

    There were winners and losers . . .

    Welcome back to VG Tips Barry and Keith. I'm always delighted when lapsed members choose to return to the fold. This is a good time to do so.

    A huge day of racing ahead on Boxing Day, or St Stephen's Day as it is called in the land of my father.

    It's always this way. The day after you have filled your belly with food, the racing schedulers fill the sport with some top quality action in the UK and Ireland. This is when being selective with your selections is a real challenge. Even for me.

    There . . .

    The rains have arrived and I fear the meetings at Haydock and Ascot on Saturday must be under threat. I'm not touching the former card as Haydock has such a bad reputation for the ground conditions being a bog and for meetings being abandoned on the day.

    Conditions at Ascot also look set to be testing. Horses with proven form on heavy ground and/or carrying a light weight in races over long distances will be of particular interest to punters.

    On Friday, One Style, an 8/15 tip yesterday, won for Venetia Williams at SP odds of 5 . . .

    I think there was a personal first last Wednesday. I had never previously tipped a horse that won a race by 99 lengths. Mind you, as stated to subscribers on Tuesday night, there was no way I was taking a very short price about Magic of Light. But, for those who did, you knew you were going to collect when the nearest rival unseated the jockey at the final fence.

    Iconic Muddle had drifted out to 16/1 in the earlier race at Newbury and so I was pleased with my each way returns on that third place finisher in . . .

    Last Saturday went well. 12/1 winning tip Warthog justified confidence and won in a very gutsy manner. The grey was up with the leaders for so long in the feature race, the Class 1 Caspian Caviar Gold Cup Chase, and came over the final fence the clear leader. But then tired and it looked as though the best finish would be second after Spiritofthegames passed Warthog on the run to the line.

    But back came Warthog under a ride by David Noonan. It's exciting to see any horse regain the lead. Never more so than when you've . . .

    Only two races drew my attention on Friday. Chantry House won as expected and the price improved on the day. 5/6 was value about a winner that was going away at the closing stages of that opening race.

    I would suggest you put the runner up in your notebooks. I had written favourably about the grey called Stolen Silver trained by Nigel Twiston-Davies. Had he been priced 9/1 when I sent out yesterday's selections, he would have been my each way option. But he was shorter then. Stolen Silver gave Chantry House a race and will . . .

    Despite the winners I tipped last weekend, I did make a mistake I hadn't made for a long time. I simply studied too many races. That's the trouble with racing these days. They put all the best racing on a Saturday. Such days can be top heavy with quality and choice. The discipline is not to fall for every card. To resist betting in too many races. Less really can be more.

    Last Saturday I allowed myself to be sucked in at too many meetings. Only myself to blame I was like a child with his face pressed . . .

    It was three winners from four selections on Friday. A day when value was on offer despite some short prices.

    How do you judge what is and isn't value? Subscribers to VG Tips know that I do not back horses at very short odds on prices.

    Goshen was not that when I tipped him to win once again for trainer Gary Moore. 5/6 was available when I sent out my analysis and tips to members, as usual, the night before racing. You should take the chance to watch Goshen win today. He destroyed a . . .

    Racing at Ludlow was abandoned on Wednesday due to fog and frost. Those who run the course had hoped the fog would lift, so left the decision late. That will have been a nuisance for the trainers who sent their horses to the racecourse.

    So much work goes into preparing horses on a day of racing. The stable staff are up bright and early and it's not simply a matter of putting the horse in its box and taking to the road. But at least Ludlow made the right decision. Eventually.

    At Haydock, meanwhile, the clerk of the course . . .

    Last Saturday threw up some surprising results and I had to make do with each way placed returns, including in the feature race at Newbury.

    On Sunday, meanwhile, racing in Ireland delivered me three short price winners (2/1, 2/1 and 4/5). All good value for their victories. I was pleased to hear back from so many subscribers to VG Tips who had put those three in a triumphant treble. I only wish I had. Life got in the way. Annoying when that happens.

    But winners are winners regardless of the prices and I have to say I . . .
