  • Racing Tips March 9

    By on 8th March 2019

    Never a better time to join VG Tips than just before the Cheltenham Festival. Last year went very well.

    So please allow me to welcome those joining for the first time, along with a few who have come back to VG Tips. Everyone is welcome to take up residency at my home for profitable punters, except unrealistic moaners. I don't tend to attract those people any longer.

    What pleases me most is how realistic, communicative and appreciative those who sign up to VG Tips are.

    I value my members whether they have been with me for several years, weeks . . .

  • Racing Tips March 2

    Christopher Wood maintained his unbeaten record for us today and provided another winner for Somerset based trainer, Paul Nicholls. His Manor Farm stable is in great form just in time for the Cheltenham Festival.

    There is no way of telling why certain stables hit good form at any one time. It's not as though the horses talk to each other from their stables and say: "Hey, are we up for it this month? Shall we give the boss a few winners."

    But while any trainer does have his horses in good form, it's always worth sticking with them . . .

    Imagine being a heavy odds on backer at Musselburgh today, only to see 1/2 favourite Constancio run off the racecourse at the fourth fence. Painful. I guess the favourite wasn't in the mood to race and just fancied buggering off back home.

    You see, just like us humans, some horses don't fancy going to work some days. They are not, contrary to the belief of some punters, machines. Horses have feelings and emotions too. They can be moody, just like us. Constancio didn't care a jot that he was odds on favourite. He packed it in . . .

    The anticipation is building among punters. The Cheltenham Festival is less than two weeks away. At VG Tips last year we enjoyed ten winners across the four days, along with some big price each way bets on horses that finished in the places.

    It will be asking a great deal to have ten more again this year, but I am already well on with my research and members of VG Tips have already received two of my festival previews which include names of some of the horses I am most keen on. If you want to join VG Tips

  • Cheltenham Festival ante-post analysis and racing tips. Part 2

    By on 25th February 2019

    The equine 'flu virus has played havoc with the pre Cheltenham Festival plans of many a racehorse trainer.

    I think it is safe to say that we will all go into this year's event with more unanswered questions than is usually the case. Punters, bookies, trainers, owners.. the lot of us.

    I don't like unknowns. They are an enemy of the punters. But we are where we are and some horses I or others fancied for the festival will go to it with only one prep run. Others with no prep run at all. That's rarely a . . .

    One for Rosie at 5/2 and Printing Dollars at 9/4 got Friday off to a great start for members of VG Tips. Winners at Warwick and Exeter in the space of twenty minutes.

    Epatante also won as predicted and did so in such an easy manner that you'd have to keep an eye out for where that one runs next, possibly the Cheltenham Festival.

    Doitforthevillage could only finish third, which was disappointing, while the final selection of the day, Emmas Joy, surprisingly flopped, finishing only fifth.

    We are fast heading into that period when trainers put away . . .

    Wednesday went well. True, the four winners were not available at great prices, but we punters don't get to price up the betting market. Which is a shame. Imagine the fun we'd have if we could do that!

    Laurina was impressive when winning the Mares Hurdle at Punchestown. Those members who took my advice and backed the straight forecast improved their returns by placing what was then 6/1 Stormy Ireland as the runner up. That's how the race finished. Laurina now goes on to Cheltenham.

    Insult was our first winner on the card at Punchestown on . . .

    Last Saturday delivered some quality racing on both sides of the Irish Sea and there were several clues towards the Cheltenham Festival.

    I will be far from alone in having changed my mind about one or two horses and one or two races for the festival, which begins three weeks from today. Part 2 of my festival preview will be sent to members in the next few days.

    While we had just the four winners on the day, Paul Nicholls trained eight. An incredible achievement about which I have written here.

    Today, Tuesday, Nicholls notched up the 3000th winner of . . .

    Friday showed once again why I personally will always favour backing something at a bigger price each way, rather than back an odds on favourite.

    Penny Mallow was a 7/1 winner for members of VG Tips today. A day when odds on favourites Kalashnikov and Elusive Bell were beaten into second.

    Over at Fakenham, scene of that enjoyable win by Penny Mallow, my other selection at that racecourse, Brelan D'as did win at odds on SP of 8/11.

    Saturday is a ludicrously busy day of racing. Much of it good quality.

    What should be the approach of . . .

    As I have said many times in my betting life, backing short priced odds on shots is a dangerous path for a punter to take. It's why I do so little of it.

    Whenever I have seen people at racecourses back such horses with hundreds or thousands of pounds, I shake my head in dismay. So they are rich and can afford to lose it. Then hand the money over to a charity, not a bookie. Give it to your local hospice, for example. The money will be used much better there than by backing the likes of Definitly . . .
