Result

grey line
23-Aug-17   Kempton Park   Star Guide   I am expecting a much better run today from Star Guide but I'm not sure we can beat the two fillies in this that head the Market. Should be good enough to get third though.   Was placed 2nd at 8/1
grey line
23-Aug-17   Kempton Park   Munstead Star   As I feared, I ran Munstead Star a bit too quick after her run at Newbury, so ignore that run. She has had 4 weeks break and is going nicely at home. This looks the perfect opportunity to get off the mark.   Won the race at 11/10
grey line
22-Aug-17   Kempton Park   Intransigent   Intransigent hasn't really had the luck he needs of late but still continues to work well at home and is now off a very attractive mark. With a bit of luck in running today, at a track he likes, I can see him getting involved.   Was placed 2nd at 14/1
grey line
21-Aug-17   Hexham   Notnowsam   Notnowsam is running better over hurdles and down in grade so should be competitive this evening. His jockey Henry Brooke has been riding out this morning and fancies his chances on him and Iain Jardines in the juvenile hurdle. We are an each way price and each way bet advised.   Was placed 3rd at 10/1
grey line
20-Aug-17   Southwell   Hammersly Lake   Hammersly Lake ran well on his first start for me and I'm expecting more of the same again today. He should put in another solid performance but this looks a decent contest and he'll need to be at his very best.   Was placed 2nd at 7/1
grey line
19-Aug-17   Market Rasen   Mighty Leader   He is in good form and if new tactics work with cheek pieces and a handier position in running then he should go well.   Won the race at 8/1
grey line
17-Aug-17   Salisbury   Orsino   Orsino has got every chance, he's very versatile ground wise, he's fit and well and reasonably well handicapped. He ought to be there or thereabouts.   Won the race at 2/1
grey line
16-Aug-17   Salisbury   Foxtrot Lady   Although I think it's unlikely Foxtrot Lady will win this, she's available at 40/1 and that's far too big a price for her. She hated the soft ground at Goodwood, she had been working nicely prior to that and I think she could run into a place today.   Was placed 3rd at 20/1
grey line
14-Aug-17   Wolverhampton   Tomorrow Mystery   Tomorrow Mystery was a little disappointing last time but the ground was too soft that day so she can be forgiven. She has come on nicely for that run and is working very well, trip and track will be ideal for her and I'm expecting a much better performance tonight. I think she will go close.   Won the race at 11/1
grey line
12-Aug-17   Ascot   Raising Sand   I'm hopeful that this horse is on his way back, obviously we had problems at the start of the year but I thought his run at Newmarket last time was encouraging. He likes this track, I do feel he is the wrong price and offers good e/w value. (20/1 WHEN POSTED)   Won the race at 10/1
grey line
12-Aug-17   Lingfield Park   Star Maker   Star Maker disappointed last time but I'm hopeful he can bounce back to form today. He's a course and distance winner, won't mind the soft ground and he should have a decent chance.   Won the race at 9/2
grey line
10-Aug-17   Wolverhampton   The Juggler   The Juggler ran well at Leicester last time and now back on the all weather where we know he runs well. We're putting the visor back on and although he's never won a race he has always worked at home like he can win races. I think he has got a good place chance and fingers crossed he can go one better.   Was placed 2nd at 8/1
grey line
09-Aug-17   Kempton Park   Arab Moon   Arab Moon loves the AW tracks, he has had a nice freshen up and goes well when fresh, is working very well and I think he's the one they all have to beat tonight.   Won the race at 2/1
grey line
09-Aug-17   Bath   Sancerre   Sancerre did well on debut and has come on a lot for the experience. I think she will like the ground and I'll be disappointed if she doesn't run a big race.   Won the race at 9/4
grey line
06-Aug-17   Market Rasen   Blue Comet   Blue Comet won well and loves this course. I think he looks like the one to beat and hopefully the step up in trip will bring more improvement out of him as he stays all day.   Won the race at 5/2
grey line
05-Aug-17   Lingfield Park   Vibes   Vibes looked to handle the ground here last week and a reproduction of that run would see him have a good chance. That last run was much better than what he had been showing so hopefully he can continue to improve.   Won the race at 7/2
grey line
05-Aug-17   Goodwood   Scorching Heat   We're running Scorching Heat back a little quicker than I wanted to but he's been very consistent, the ground won't be a problem and it'll be nice to see him in a big field with a truly run race. Conditions are in his favour and he must have a good e/w chance.   Won the race at 9/2
grey line
04-Aug-17   Newmarket   Summer Chorus   Summer Chorus hasn't quite been in the same form this year as she was last, but she likes Newmarket, the extra furlong will help her and she didn't run a bad race last time. She should have an e/w chance.   Was placed 2nd at 7/1
grey line
04-Aug-17   Goodwood   Beat The Bank   Beat The Bank is a lovely horse, in great form and I'm hopeful he can win this. The only question mark would be the ground, who knows if he will handle it, it will be sticky and slow, but my feeling is that he's the best horse in the race and I'll be disappointed if he didn't win.   Won the race at 7/4
grey line
04-Aug-17   Newmarket   Crossing The Line   Crossing The Line is a lovely filly, goes well and is as nice a filly as we have run all year. It's her first time out so she will improve for the run, but we do like her and there's every chance she can get placed.   Won the race at 9/1
grey line
03-Aug-17   Goodwood   Alifax   The ground was too quick for him last time but he won on soft ground at Chester the time before that so he should like today's conditions. I wasn't going to run him unless the rain arrived and it's going to turn this into a stamina test which could well suit him. It's a tough, tight handicap but I do feel he's one of those in with a chance.   Was placed 3rd at 33/1
grey line
03-Aug-17   Ffos Las   Eolian   I think Eolian will run a big race, he'll love the ground, had good form on it last year and these are his optimum conditions. He ran well on his first start this year and then he's had excuses since, I'm hopeful we will see what he can do tonight.   Won the race at 11/4
grey line
02-Aug-17   Redcar   Quoteline Direct   Trip and track will suit Quoteline Direct and we are hoping he can return to form today. He's on a good mark and looks overpriced.   Was placed 2nd at 20/1
grey line
29-Jul-17   Salisbury   Torcello   Torcello disappointed slightly last time but today's better ground and step up in trip will be perfect for him. He's improving all the time at home and I think he's the one they all have to beat.   Won the race at 5/2
grey line
28-Jul-17   Ascot   Gawdawpalin   Gawdawpalin has been gelded since his last run which should settle him down nicely. He's in good order, goes well with cut in the ground and I think he's overpriced at around 16/1.   Won the race at 11/1
grey line
26-Jul-17   Bath   Golden Salute   Golden Salute won nicely last time, I don't think the ground will be a problem as she ran well enough on it for 5f on debut. She's in great form at home and she's the one they all have to beat.   Won the race at 5/4
grey line
25-Jul-17   Chelmsford City   Ancient Foe   Ancient Foe was disappointing first time out, but we think it was the ground as he was working well before that and has been working well since. I think he's well up to winning a maiden, it does look quite a strong race but nonetheless I do expect him to be there or thereabout at a big price.   Was placed 3rd at 8/1
grey line
22-Jul-17   Newbury   Perfect Angel   Perfect Angel will appreciate any rain that falls, I think you can put a line through her last run as she was on the wrong side of the track and although this does look a tough assignment I do think she could run quite well at a price.   Was placed 2nd at 20/1
grey line
22-Jul-17   Market Rasen   Blue Comet   Blue Comet has been placed every run for us in bumpers and hurdles. This looks to be a close contest between us and Skeltons runner. Hopefully we get the win.   Won the race at 8/11
grey line
22-Jul-17   Newmarket   Contango   Contango won well at Chester last time where he looked a nice type. He's on a good mark, worked very well this week and I'll be disappointed if he didn't win this.   Won the race at 11/10
grey line
20-Jul-17   Chepstow   She Believes   If She Believes ran to her first run she would take some beating here, but things just haven't gone her way since. Again if the ground was softer than they are saying then this could be an issue, but she should be good enough to be in the first three.   Won the race at 11/4
grey line
18-Jul-17   Worcester   Luccombe Down   Luccombe Down always seems to run well in better handicaps off a lower weight. He is in great form at home and we do think that he has got a very good e/w chance.   Was placed 3rd at 9/2
grey line
17-Jul-17   Windsor   Golden Salute   Golden Salute showed a lot of speed on her debut so the drop back in trip shouldn't be a problem. She's improved for that first run, we like her a lot and I expect her to be very competitive.   Won the race at 4/1
grey line
16-Jul-17   Stratford   Phoenix Dawn   My horses do seem to be starting to hit a bit of form at home and this chap has schooled well so far for his first run over hurdles. I think he could have a decent e/w chance today.   Was placed 2nd at 9/1
grey line
16-Jul-17   Stratford   Bestwork   Bestwork returned to his best after a disappointing run at Hexham and I think he still improving. If he runs to the same form today, he should take a fair bit of beating again.   Won the race at 11/4
grey line
15-Jul-17   Ascot   Galactic Prince   Galactic Prince has got a good chance, he won nicely last time and I think he's got just what it takes to be effective here at Ascot. It's a tough looking handicap but he will have a good e/w chance.   Was placed 3rd at 8/1
grey line
15-Jul-17   Ascot   Preacher Man   The Preacher Man will be better off on this better ground, he didn't really like it at Salisbury on debut but still ran with credit. I hope to see the usual improvement from first to second run and I think he can get involved.   Was placed 2nd at 15/2
grey line
15-Jul-17   Chester   Viscount Barfield   The draw hasn't been very helpful but he does like it around here so I think he can run into a place. He'll need a bit of luck from the wide draw, but he's in good order and if getting the splits at the right time can go well.   Won the race at 20/1
grey line
15-Jul-17   Ascot   Cricklewood Green   Cricklewood Green might have a little e/w chance, he's won here in the past and although the trip is probably a little short of his optimum, he might be able to sneak into a place.   Won the race at 8/1
grey line
14-Jul-17   Newmarket   Atkinson Grimshaw   Atkinson Grimshaw has got a low weight, he's 2lbs out of the handicap but he's fit and well. He will stay the trip out well so we will try and ride him aggressively and he could get them all at it and hang on in there for a long way. I'd give him a good e/w chance.   Was placed 3rd at 12/1
grey line
