  • We had a good last weekend and midweek at VG Tips. The five teams to win accumulator paid out at odds of 8/1. The bet combined weekend wins for Aston Villa, Nottingham Forest, Leeds and Barnsley with a midweek win by Arsenal. Hooray!

    We began the season with a 35/1 winning accumulator and have suffered some near misses in recent weeks. I'm glad that one paid off and I'm hopeful for my own 13/1, four teams to win accumulator this weekend.

    The most recent winning single bet was the draw between Crystal Palace and Southampton . . .

    4 winners from 4 racing tips on Thursday. 3 losers from 3 tips on Friday. That's the up and down life of a punter. Granted Friday's selections did come with a Vernon health warning and Magic of Light was only beaten a length today.

    Ironically, beaten by Happy Diva which I tipped at an each way price in a lower class of race as recently as last weekend. Happy Diva finished a 22 length third that day. On Friday, in a higher class of race, she goes and beats a previous Class 1, Grade 2 winner. Go figure . . .

    Relax! Back in the winners enclosure. Luck of the Irish? Not a bit of it.

    100% record at Gowran Park races on Thursday. 4 win only tips offered to members. All 4 win. Excuse me while I shout.... GET IN!!!!!!!

    Presenting Percy, a winner for members of VG Tips at the 2018 Cheltenham Festival, returned from a long lay off to win the Grade 2 Galmoy Hurdle at Gowran Park. The 366 day absence from racing before today - not a bother on him. Now he heads for Cheltenham in March where he's among the favourites for the Gold Cup . . .

  • Who’d be a football manager? A lot of people, it seems.

    There is never a shortage of applicants for vacant roles as Head Coach or team Manager. Yet the job can drive men a little crazy.

    The Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri lost his cool last weekend, claiming his players were hard to motivate. Even the usually mild mannered Chris Hughton was in trouble with the authorities for criticising referees.

    Football is taken far too seriously these days, especially by those in the game and those who cover it. As the plane tragedy that saw a talented 28 year old . . .

    Jack Frost is having his say. Racing fixtures are being called off due to dropping temperatures and even some snow in places.

    There was even snowfall at Cheltenham overnight. Here's hoping temperatures rise before the weekend as there is a good meeting at Cheltenham on Saturday, including a few trials races for the festival next March. We could learn plenty come Saturday should that meeting go ahead.

    One way or another the odd weather this winter - mild at first, a lack of rain later - has played havoc for trainers preparing certain horses for the big dates in March. Should . . .

    Snow is forecast for some parts on Saturday. Freezing temperatures elsewhere and heavy rain may land on some racecourses tonight and on the day of racing.

    It’s that time of the year. Race meetings are vulnerable to the changing weather and racecourse inspections will become the norm.

    Predicting the weather is much more reliable these days thanks to the wonders of science. Predicting winners, as Friday proved, remains as much of a challenge as it was in the days when weather forecasts consisted of weathermen sticking adhesive signs on to a weather map.

    These days the Met Office gets . . .

    Uhlan Bute was a welcome 5/1 winner on Wednesday.

    One aspect all punters must have in mind right now is the ever drying ground conditions due to a general lack of rain across the UK this winter.

    It means that several horses you see racing right now, including this weekend, have been winning or performing well on soft or heavy going. But now they face genuinely Good or Good to Soft ground. Some racecourses are watering to ensure the going is not too firm.

    Before more severe cold weather arrives next week - and no doubt leads to some meetings . . .

  • Wins last weekend by Southampton at 3/1, and Swansea at 2/1, were most welcome on what was a day of surprising results.

    Some managers leave nothing to chance and Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa confirmed this week that he has "spied" on every opposing team prior to Leeds playing them this season. This brought about some truly ludicrous media coverage and mock outrage from the likes of Paul Ince and Dean Saunders. Based on their record in management, I would suggest Bielsa has forgotten more about how to be a successful coach than those two gents will ever know . . .

    I'm currently writing the January newsletter which contains both good and bad news.

    The good news being the annual profit for 2018. The bad news being my woeful performance last Saturday, when only 20/1 each way tip returned profit on finishing second behind a leniently handicapped opponent racing from a light weight.

    Firing blanks happens so rarely that those days stick in my mind. The first thing I do is undertake my own post mortem. I watch back the races concerned. I look back at the form I studied before the races. I try to see where, if . . .
