  • ARSENAL WIN the FA Cup. My 14/1 tip back on the 3rd of January pays off. Although no Arsenal fan, I was obviously pleased to win that bet. Also pleased to see how delighted Mikel Arteta seemed to be when lifting the trophy

    Too often these days the FA Cup is undervalued and some managers and coaches pay lip service to the tournament. Arteta, however, was clearly very happy to win the competition and ensure Arsenal qualify for the Europa League next season.

    Doing so means his squad will play more matches next season. It's going . . .

    By on 2nd August 2020

    Glorious weather. A fantastic racecourse. Some truly top quality races. What a shame that spectators could not attend one of the best Good Festivals I have ever watched.

    There were star turns that I backed and brilliant performers that I didn't (but will next time). Battaash broke the racecourse record. Stradivarius was as imperious as ever. Mohaather was a very impressive winner of the Sussex Stakes and you'd have to be backing that one next time out.

    I had 7 winners. A perfectly respectable total I am satisfied with. There was a time a few years ago when . . .

    Whoosh! BATTAASH breaks the course record, his own record, when winning the Qatar Stakes once again and maintaining his unbeaten record at glorious Goodwood. The fastest horse on the planet won on Friday in a time of 55.62 seconds. It's quite possible my generation of racing fan will never see his like again. He's amazing.

    Earlier on Friday I was very pleased that my win and each way tip in the Group 3 race for fillies' and mares finished first and second respectively. A result for anyone who bet on the forecast. It looked as . . .

    We've reached the end of July and a flat racing season that once looked unlikely is hotting up nicely.

    I am sending out my Friday analysis and racing selections for Friday before racing has begun on Thursday.

    Hopefully we'll see some good race finishes on Thursday as we did on Wednesday, which was a very good day of racing. The racecourse looks as stunning as ever, set as it is in the rolling hills of the Sussex countryside.

    It is not just the racing that is warming up this week. So is the weather. Temperatures could reach 30c . . .

    Sometimes the clues are there and they were for STEEL BULL, our 9/2 winner on Wednesday. I enjoyed watching that tip win at SP odds of 2/1. Irish trainer Michael O'Callaghan so liked what he saw on the breeze ups that he bought the horse for a mere £28.000. Loose change when it comes to buying thoroughbred racehorses.

    His mobile telephone was pinging throughout his post race interview with ITV Racing. No doubt pinging with offers from wealthy owners wanting to buy the impressive winner of the Group 3 Molecomb Stakes. Steel Bull will . . .

  • So the domestic English Premier League season is over. At last.

    Manchester United and Chelsea secured the two remaining Champions League places. The players of Leicester City thought they had done enough to finish in the top four. They took their foot of the pedal and tried to coast along post lockdown. They should be almost as ashamed of themselves for this capitulation as they should for shafting the man who helped them win the Premier League, Claudio Ranieri.

    Thirty years from now they will be showing their Premier League winning medals to their grandchildren. A medal they would not . . .

    The betting market can be like the stock market. Prices do go up and down.

    The swings and roundabouts of taking an early price were on show on Tuesday.

    The odds for my first winner on Tuesday, BATTLEGROUND, got bigger on the day. For some reason punters were not keen on the Ryan Moore ridden winner and so the odds drifted out to 13/8. Thank you very much, bookies!

    My second winner on day one of the Goodwood meeting, SPACE BLUES, was widely available at 5/2 when selected for members yesterday. Backed into 2 . . .

    The ups and downs of racing were on display on Sunday when my fancy Sam Cooke was beaten by just a nose at Ascot. A nose! Painful watching.

    But Santosha was a nice price winner for us at odds of 5/1. I was glad to see that one justify my confidence and you had to be pleased to see the emotional post race interview with trainer David Loughnane. I'm glad I spotted his one in what was a competitive looking race.

    My Billesdon Brook was a non runner in the Valiant Fillies Stakes. I can't help but . . .
