  • Racing Tips July 11-12

    By on 10th July 2020

    There were more non runners at Newmarket on Friday than there were people in attendance.

    Inevitably very soft ground saw trainers withdraw horses they believed would not like the ground.

    I cannot help but feel Magic Wand would have been very competitive in the Group 1 Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket. But that one was withdrawn leaving the two John Gosden stablemates to take each other on. Frankie Dettori chose to try and win from the front aboard Terebellum. Big mistake, Frankie. Stablemate Nazeef picked him off late on and continued his long winning run. Nazeef is a gutsy horse who . . .

    AL SUHAIL won for members of VG Tips at Newmarket. My only NAP on the day, he was the confident selection of Thursday because of two factors. 1) The odds of on offer and 2) He was on all known form the best horse in the race.

    Some days one horse stands out and for all I gave Lord Campari a good write up, I was astonished that one was favourite. Al Suhail should have been so but I am very grateful to the bookies who offered odds of 5/1 about Al Suhail the day . . .

    Last weekend was memorable for various reasons. Starting with the surprising winner of the Derby at Epsom. Serpentine took up the lead early on and just kept on going. Coming around Tattenham Corner and going downhill, he became the horse the others could not catch. It is not taking anything away from the horse or his likeable jockey to say that most of the other jockeys in the race were missing in action. Quite what they were thinking of in allowing Serpentine to open up such a big lead only they know. Several of those not riding horses trained by . . .

    I am sending out analysis and selections for Sunday before either the Oaks or the Derby have taken place on Saturday. But SAFE VOYAGE, an 11/8 tip to members, won the first race I focused on at Epsom. A nice start to the day.

    This is a very busy time of racing in the UK, Ireland and France. Top class meetings are coming along in the manner of buses, all close together.

    Next week we can look forward to racing returning to the Knavesmire at York. A great racecourse run by professional people. As has been the . . .

    During lockdown, when we were without the sports we love from late March until June 1st, I was chuffed with how members of VG Tips stuck with me. Flattered by the loyalty they displayed, continuing to pay for my service with the personal guarantee from me that I would extend their memberships by the number of days they had each missed out on.  As I have done so.

    Their loyalty is admirable. Philip contacted me to say:- “Just a quick email to say thank you. Your analysis is great and thoroughly enjoy reading your emails. It is very clear you . . .

    By on 2nd July 2020

    Some days of racing are great. We can look forward to top quality racing on Saturday and Sunday. I don't mind taking hours or days studying form for such races. It's worth the effort and it gets what Poirot would call the 'little grey cells' working hard.

    But when I take ages to study races that are of a much lesser grade, it's not a good sign. I worry when that happens. It means I am wading through some low class racing, desperately trying to find us some potential winners or double figure priced each way selections . . .

  • Racing. Derby Preview and Tips

    By on 1st July 2020

    16 horses are due to to go post for the Derby at 4.55pm on Saturday 4th of July. Gone are those glorious days when the race took place on the first Wednesday of the month. Being a traditionalist, I would still rather the Derby was midweek.

    But here we are. The 4th of July is independence day in the USA and has been deliberately chosen as the day the pubs of England will open once more. Imagine how drunk some people will be by the time this race goes off. They will be in the boozers, placing bets via . . .

    I write the weekend preview before any of my selections have raced on Friday.

    What I call my 'Something for the Weekend' racing analysis and betting tips are all the more valuable these days when midweek racing - outside of the high grade festivals - can be lacking in quality.

    The weekend after this coming one, all attention will be on pubs opening again in England. I wonder if the landlords of Epsom and Ewell will have Derby Day specials. After all, July 4th is not only independence day, it is also the date of the delayed Derby on the rolling downs . . .

    Now we know racing is back! Royal Ascot 2020 was a fantastic feast of racing. The meeting has whetted the appetite of punters who were for so long deprived of the chance to watch top quality racing and the ability to have a bet.

    Royal Ascot delivered me 7 winners and 10 profitable each way placed punts.

    It wasn't the easiest event for any keen punters. So many horses had not enjoyed the benefit of a prep race for the royal meeting and, in many cases, it showed. Some horses that were expected to do well didn't look . . .
