  • Racing Tips October 10

    Pretty Gorgeous lived up to her name today when winning the Group 1 Fillies Mile at Newmarket. A past winner for myself and subscribers, I was kicking myself for not remaining loyal to her. But when there is more than one past winner for you in any race, you have to choose and my Isabella Giles ran far too keenly in the early stages of that race and ran out of steam late on. Pretty Gorgeous was a worthy winner and is now the ante-post favourite for the 1000 Guineas om May 2nd 2021.

    Saturday sees yet more races . . .

    I wasn't impressed by the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. I was disappointed with how the race panned out. I am afraid that the absence of the horses from Ireland led to a lack of pace in the race. Without the quartet from the O'Brien family, the race was run at a very slow pace. That led to horses packing tight, racing on each others heels and some of them lacking room to manoeuvre.

    My Raabihah was pulled out into space too late by the jockey. Once they found room, Raabihah ran on fast to finish fifth . . .

  • Seemingly it's not only the football that's gone crazy. So have I.

    Further apologies for getting my dates mixed up when it comes to the busy football schedule of the coming days. Discard the previous two football tips e-mails sent to you.
    Were I manager of Tottenham Hotspur, I'd be having the team turn up for games on the wrong days.

    In my defence, I have been trying to work through my illness of the past three weeks which, annoyingly, comes and goes. One day I think I am back to full fitness and can once . . .

    Some punters follow French racing much closer than I do. Frankly, there's plenty of racing taking place in the UK on all but fewer than a handful of days each year to occupy my mind.

    I am sometimes asked why I so rarely offer tips for racing in France. Races in which UK trainers send over the odd runner because prize money is superior across the channel. It is because of unknowns. Racing packed full of French bred and trained horses are not for me because I know so little about those horses and how good their form when . . .

    September was fairly rubbish for me. Both on the betting and health front. The latter being far more important than the former, even to this seasoned punter.

    So it was nice to begin October with 4 winners from 4 tips on Friday. A 100% record on the day.

    TYSON FURY at generous odds of 4/1 was the last of the quartet to win. The day began well when 5/2 Ascot selection PIRANESI triumphed. Squeezed between those two, 4/7 tip BERKSHIRE ROCCO won at SP odds of 1/2 and my first . . .

    All eyes are on France for the weekend. The Prix de 'l'Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp on Sunday looks like being a cracker run on heavy going. Today's news was that trainer Aidan O'Brien has withdrawn Love due to the soft/heavy ground which will not improve with yet further rain to fall on Paris. That has led to the price about Enable shortening as favourite. Can the mare create history and win the race for a record third time? We shall see.

    But on paper at least, it's no one horse race. Far from it . . .

  • How long before more football clubs follow Macclesfield Town and cease trading? While we were all rightly complaining about the new ludicrous handball rule in football, an estate agent in the North West of England was publishing a 'for sale' advert online. Selling the home ground of the historic club that was an integral part of the town of Macclesfield.

    While the top clubs were spending millions and millions of pounds on buying yet more players at a time when some of those same clubs are, or were recently, furloughing their staff; Macclesfield Town went out of business. It's . . .

    I am sending out Saturday's selections just after my first on Friday has raced. And won! ISABELLA GILES, a 2/1 tip, won the Rockfel Stakes in good fashion and with something to spare. She could be winning a big race for fillies next season. Have her in your notebook or tracker.

    I did watch the race in which I didn't offer a tip. A race reduced to four runners and one that Alpinista would have won had the jockey not gone for a gap, got blocked out of it, and the filly caught heels in . . .
