    Hands up at the back of class! Who was on the 300/1 winner at Leopardstown? No, me neither.

    I’m glad I swerved that race as I was about to give Agitaire one more chance to win a race for me but that one was beaten on the line by a 300/1 outsider called He Knows No Fear.

    Only my first fancy at the Irish racecourse won on Thursday. ANGEL PALM, at odds of 6/5, proving that the form of her very first race back in June really is worth trusting. That race has produced . . .

    Sunday went well for me. I was delighted SPACE BLUES won the feature race in France. At last! A Group 1 win for the very likeable Godolphin owned Space Blues. Tipped when available at odds of 11/2, he won the Prix Maurice De Gheest Stakes at Deauville in good style and at SP odds of 4/1.

    In Ireland, my 9/1 each way selection LUCKY VEGA won the Group 1 Phoenix Park Stakes and did so going away fast from the rest of the field. That was a very impressive win. I felt sorry . . .

    POLITICS can often be a dirty word but not today. Not after the one I told subscribers to put in their race tracker or notebooks after he finished second on debut, bolted up to win on Friday. SP odds of 11/10 represented value for a two and a quarter length win in my first chosen race at Sandown. Once again, Politics was running on well at the finish of the race today and I would imagine trainer Andrew Balding will step the colt up in distance and class next time out. One to keep on your side . . .

    I have been a tad slow lately in welcoming new members or thanking others for staying with me for another year.

    Andy just returned to VG Tips and for one year. Luke has opted to join for one month. Ankur and Nicky, now seasoned VG Tips subscribers, have signed up for another year. I thank them all.

    And also to Ankur for these kind words:- "This membership is the best decision I have taken ever, your analysis and foresightedness is the best. Recently, I placed a 8 fold multi from your soccer tips which proved to be a lottery . . .

    It was two winners from three races selected on Monday. The NAP Frenetic lost, just, but those who took the early odds of 7/2 about MOUNTAIN PEAK did well because that selection won at a much shorter SP price.

    But the last winner for me on Monday was, for me at least, the most pleasing. On the day odds of 15/2 became available for DHABYAH.

    Here's what I told my subscribers why I chose that impressive 5/1 (SP) winner:- "Only five go to post. Only of them has yet to race . . .

    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 . . .

    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 . . .
