  • It was 1980 that I first attended the prestigous Ebor meeting on the beautiful Knavesmire racecourse at York. It remains my favourite course for flat racing.

    The 2016 Ebor meeting begins on Wednesday. At a time when trainers and owners are ever more choosy about where they send their horses, it is a credit to those who run York that so many top class horses are booked to appear at the course between Wednesday and Saturday.

    I shall have selections for each day of the meeting, beginning on Wednesday.

  • 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 . . .
