Result

grey line
18-Oct-18   Uttoxeter   Station Master   This looks a red hot contest and a good field with 12 runners. Every horse in the race has a chance. Station Master is an ex English point winner who is in great form. He will have to run to his very best hurdle form to win this. He must have place chances and better... that would be great news.   Was placed 2nd at 8/1
grey line
16-Oct-18   Hereford   What's Occurring   What’s Occurring showed promise in all of his runs last season, a bumper followed by three hurdle races. His last race at Market Rasen might look a bit disappointing on paper but it was a good race, very competitive. Last season was very much a learning curve for him and thanks to his patient owners he’s been given plenty of time to mature. He has grown up a lot, he used to boil over very easily but he is really chilled at home now, he works nicely and has always schooled well. He's in good order and should have a good chance.   Won the race at 4/6
grey line
16-Oct-18   Hereford   Versifier   Versifier is a lovely honest mare that has had a few problems and absolutely no luck. Last time out at Stratford she had terrible traffic issues, the track was plenty sharp enough for her so she didn’t have the speed to get out of trouble and endured a rough time. Versifier came back with a few cuts and scratches from there so she has been given plenty of time to recover, I think that she needs a good gap between her races to be at her best. On what she shows me at home I do believe that once Versifier gets her head in front she will be away, she needs a little rub of the green to give her the confidence to progress.   Won the race at 4/1
grey line
16-Oct-18   Hereford   Ilewin Geez   Ilewin Geez must have some sort of chance, the horse that beat him the other day has since won again so the form has been boosted. He gets his ground, the extra trip won't be a problem and whilst he does have a couple to beat, he shouldn't be too far away.   Won the race at 7/2
grey line
14-Oct-18   Goodwood   Riviera Claire   I think Riviera Claire is overpriced. I like the filly, she will go on slow ground which it's going to be today and I wouldn't be surprised to see her in the places at a big price.   Was placed 3rd at 16/1
grey line
14-Oct-18   Chepstow   Charbel   A good return run at Perth when he finished third. This is more competitive but hopefully he should build on that run. Again goes there well and again has an outstanding chance.   Won the race at 5/1
grey line
13-Oct-18   Newmarket   Cleonte   Cleonte would have a chance but obviously it's a tough race. He's really well, conditions will suit him, he probably could have done with it a little slower but he's got some decent form on fast ground so I'm not too worried. He's got a live e/w chance.   Was placed 3rd at 25/1
grey line
12-Oct-18   Wolverhampton   Jersey Wonder   I was very please with his last run and Jersey Wonder is still improving and he should like this extra trip today. He should take a lot of beating.   Won the race at 9/4
grey line
11-Oct-18   Bangor   Dandy Dan   Dandy Dan has several pounds to find on hurdle ratings to win this. He has had two runs and therefore has chase experience. A repeat of his first run should put him right there with an outstanding chance.   Won the race at 11/8
grey line
08-Oct-18   Pontefract   Wishing Well   Wishing Well will like the ground and appreciate this trip and test of stamina, good each way chance.   Was placed 3rd at 50/1
grey line
08-Oct-18   Windsor   Good Birthday   Good Birthday is on a learning process but I quite like him and it wouldn't surprise me if he were to run into a place today.   Was placed 2nd at 14/1
grey line
08-Oct-18   Kempton Park   Archimento   Archimento is in good form, it's a competitive enough race but I think he could run very well and have a good e/w chance.   Won the race at 8/1
grey line
08-Oct-18   Windsor   Mr Reckless   His last race wasn't run to suit him, they crawled and then sprinted and I think this test on slow ground will suit him much better. He's in good form and I think he's capable of winning off his current mark. Whether it's today or not I'm not sure but he must have a good chance.   Won the race at 4/1
grey line
06-Oct-18   Ascot   Raising Sand   Raising Sand is in great form and has been desperate for some give in the ground which he will at last get today. I think he is over priced and should run a big race.   Won the race at 5/1
grey line
05-Oct-18   Ascot   Cliffs Of Capri   Cliffs Of Capri saves his best for Ascot and this race looks ideal for him. It's a relatively weak race for the grade and I hope he can win.   Won the race at 9/4
grey line
05-Oct-18   Ascot   Lush Life   I was slightly disappointed with Lush Life at Sandown but I think it was just the lack of a run on grass. I really like this filly and back to 7f with that race under her belt I think she can run a big race here.   Won the race at 7/2
grey line
03-Oct-18   Bangor-On-Dee   Wandrin Star   He has shown a good level of form on his recent runs and comes into this race in good health. He has been working and jumping well at home and we expect a bold showing and should go very close in this race.   Won the race at 3/1
grey line
02-Oct-18   Southwell   Commodore Barry   A winner on his last start over hurdles at Worcester back in May. Commodore Barry runs in his first handicap and this looks an ideal opportunity for him to win again. The 3 mile trip should suit and we have a strong rider who does not claim which does mean weight wise we are probably wrong with all the opposition.   Won the race at 5/1
grey line
30-Sep-18   Epsom Downs   Hackle Setter   Hackle Setter is in a much easier race today than last time and I am trying him over a mile. I think he will get it and I am hopeful of a much better run today, closer to his winning run at Chepstow.....if he takes to this track!   Won the race at 7/1
grey line
29-Sep-18   Market Rasen   Caius Marcius   It's a very competitive race but I think Caius Marcius has got a very good e/w chance. The cheek pieces just put a bit of a sharper edge on him last time and hopefully they'll work again. He's in grand fettle. It looks like there's going to be a bag of pace on which will suit my boy down to the ground. I'm hoping he can come with a late flurry and pick up the pieces.   Won the race at 12/1
grey line
29-Sep-18   Chelmsford   Straight Right   Straight Right has done plenty of work and should be fit enough. As long as he's not too rusty then he'll have a very good chance. He's a high class horse on the all weather.   Won the race at 4/1
grey line
27-Sep-18   Newmarket   Bye Bye Hong Kong   Bye Bye Hong Kong really is a super horse and he ran with the choke out last time for some reason. His work at home is brilliant and if he can settle today, he will run a big race and looks very overpriced. (16/1 WHEN POSTED)   Was placed 2nd at 9/2
grey line
26-Sep-18   Wolverhampton   Sicario   I thought it was worth a try with Sicario, over 1 1/2 Miles last time.....which it wasn’t! He just didn’t stay. Back to a trip we know he gets tonight, so I am hoping he can get back into the mix again.   Was placed 3rd at 12/1
grey line
26-Sep-18   Wolverhampton   Monumental Man   Monumental Man is in such great form at the moment. I still think he is on a very winnable mark and from the plumb draw, I think he can win this!   Won the race at 10/3
grey line
25-Sep-18   Warwick   Pickamix   This looks a competitive race but Pickamix is in good form and he will have an e/w chance. He's gone up 5lbs from his last win, trip and ground will be fine and he should run his race.   Was placed 2nd at 15/2
grey line
23-Sep-18   Hamilton Park   Soldier To Follow   I think Soldier To Follow has got a great chance, he's fit and well, will handle the soft ground and was a bit unlucky last time in that he went a bit soon and didn't get home. Ridden with a little more restraint he should go very well.   Won the race at 7/2
grey line
22-Sep-18   Newmarket   Bubble And Squeak   This looks a good opportunity for Bubble And Squeak and we have the assistance of Simon Walker in the saddle. She ran very well last time and a repeat of that will see her with a good chance.   Won the race at 2/1
grey line
21-Sep-18   Newbury   Dashing Willoughby   Dashing Willoughby is a very nice horse, we like him and the rain has helped his chances here. He's come on from his first run and he must have every chance. (10/1 WHEN POSTED)   Was placed 2nd at 9/2
grey line
21-Sep-18   Newbury   Sir Busker   Sir Busker is improving all the time and I think he's over priced in this. I like him, can see him running pretty well and he'd have an e/w chance at a big price.   Won the race at 25/1
grey line
20-Sep-18   Chelmsford City   Seinesational   Seinesational ran a bit keen last time so we are riding him slightly differently today. It doesn’t look the strongest of races and he should make the frame at the very least.   Won the race at 4/1
grey line
20-Sep-18   Ayr   Lariat   Lariat ran a nice first race and I do like this horse. I would say we have a bit to find with the favourite but he will go well and should be in the frame at a nice price.   Won the race at 13/2
grey line
18-Sep-18   Lingfield Park   Mans Not Trot   Mans Not Trot is my horse, he's better than a seller and he'll be a good buy for someone. He's sound, he's pretty much a blank canvass and will make into a nice 3yo hurdler. It's not impossible he could run a lot better than his current price would suggest and I'm expecting him to not be too far away. (18/1 WHEN POSTED)   Was placed 2nd at 6/1
grey line
18-Sep-18   Redcar   Irv   Irv pleased us with both of his Thirsk runs. Has a good draw and another nice flat track, with the ground being suitable, we have plenty in our favor today.   Was placed 2nd at 17/2
grey line
18-Sep-18   Kempton Park   Dream Catching   Dream Catching ran well at Brighton last time in a handicap, he should be competitive today and the drop back a furlong should help. He's not got a huge amount in hand with the handicapper but he's getting his act together and getting some consistency so should be there or thereabouts.   Won the race at 7/2
grey line
17-Sep-18   Kempton Park   Rippling Waters   I really thought Rippling Waters was going to win her last race but she didn’t seem to enjoy the sand. She is in terrific form and must be hard to beat today!   Won the race at 7/2
grey line
17-Sep-18   Hexham   Cockley Beck   Cockley Beck clearly needed the run last time, having had a break due to a wind op. She has certainly sharpened up for that run and is back up to a better distance for her today. I expect a much improved performance today and she should have a decent chance.   Won the race at 7/1
grey line
16-Sep-18   Ffos Las   Sybil Grand   Sybil Grand has come down to a winnable mark and I think dropping her back to 6f is ideal. She should have a strong E/W chance at least.   Was placed 3rd at 7/1
grey line
15-Sep-18   Chelmsford City   Irene May   Irene May ran a cracker first time out and has come on for that run. I do worry that Daphinia could be too good for us today though as baring her last run, she looks very progressive.   Won the race at 5/2
grey line
14-Sep-18   Salisbury   Foxtrot Lady   Foxtrot Lady would have a great chance. She's another who has her optimum conditions, everything in her favour and should take all the beating.   Won the race at 2/5
grey line
14-Sep-18   Doncaster   Dancing Star   Dancing Star was a bit unlucky last time, she's in great form and should be able to go very close. She has her optimum conditions here and is a major player.   Won the race at 7/2
grey line
