  • One winner and three each way profitable punts today, Friday.

    Franklin D was available at 7/2 on Thursday night when I selected that one for members. Hugely backed on the day by punters, he won at a mere 7/4. Once again, early bird backers got great value.

    Washington DC, tipped at 12/1, came second and would have won had the race been over another half furlong. But that still delivered nice each way profit.

    Easton Angel and Rusumaat returned a little each way profit. When people say why back a horse each way at 8/1 or . . .

  • THREE RACES SELECTED ON THURSDAY. AND 3 WINNERS!

    Big Orange won for us at Goodwood on Thursday and those who took the early price of 4/1, or the morning price of 9/2, were well ahead of the SP price of 11/4.

    I have been banging on about how important course form is at Goodwood and Big Orange won the same race a year earlier. Despite that, jockey Jamie Spencer maintains that flat tracks are preferable for Big Orange. The undulations at Goodwood catch out many a good horse. But not Big Orange.

    Rhododendron also won for us . . .

  • Some races truly are two horse events and the punter has to make a decision between two that are closely matched on form and ability, or who have met before. Some days you call the right one of the two. Other days you pick the wrong one.

    I wrote yesterday of how I backed The Gurkha to beat Galileo Gold at Royal Ascot. The Gurkha was slow away that day and met trouble in running. Nevertheless, Galileo Gold won well and was stretching away at the finish.

    After much debate with myself, I opted to be with Galileo Gold to . . .

  • At the time of writing, the last selection at Goodwood on Tuesday has yet to race, as do the Galway picks.

    But, as things stand, all has gone well in Sussex. War Decree, tipped up at 15/8, won the Group 2 race at 2.35pm and was followed home by my double figure price each way selection, Thunder Snow (keep an eye out for that one next time out).

    Thunder Snow was available at 16/1 and 14/1 on Monday night. That one went off, having been well backed, at only 8/1.

    Members also enjoyed the winner . . .

  • Whichever side of the Irish Sea you find yourself this week, there's top quality racing on offer.

    If in Ireland, do get to the Galway Festival for at least one day. The Irish love their racing and are very knowledgeable. They tend to go racing for the racing, not the beer. Well, apart from the gorgeous Guinness.

    At so called glorious Goodwood, the scenery is stunning and the horses taking part are beautiful beasts.

    My form at Goodwood fluctuates. Some years good, other years terrible. With little middle ground it seems.

    I recalled last year at Galway being a . . .

  • It's Royal Ascot next week and, for me at least, it cannot come soon enough.

    I placed my first ante-post bet at odds of 7/4 two days ago and that price has now gone. But I will be e-mailing members as soon as possible with my ante-post Ascot fancies.

    For all that meeting is very competitive and notoriously hard to call, there are a few I fancy ahead of time this year. Of course, I want to check the weather forecast first. A change in ground conditions can make a mockery of ante-post bets . . .
