Court Artist- OK but not 1st string. Fair play to Cap Soleil for another win
Didn’t see Coney Island race but sounded impressive giving fair chunk of weight away. Beat my selection roundly.
Harry- not bad, not going to win the Stayers
Frodon- ran and jumped well; beaten by nice horse with more scope
Divin Bere- not easiest of passages through the race but wouldn’t have been placed anyway.
Onwards and upwards (well realistically not upwards…just bumping along around zero 😉 )January 1, 2018 at 12:53 #1335248

FF for 5 places, others for 4.January 11, 2018 at 13:56 #1336858
Trying to avoid betting at the moment as not doing well but had to have an interest in I Just Know 2.35 Catterick at 4-1 0.5pt win.
I liked the look of him at Ayr last season and he’s a decent size so should be up to plenty of weight. Only concern is slight tendency to jump right but other than that is decent jumper I think.January 11, 2018 at 16:19 #1336875
well played GrassJanuary 12, 2018 at 15:17 #1337030
Thanks VtC, I know putting minimal stake on a co favourite is hardly the tip of the century but I was glad not to miss him as I’ve been looking out for him.
I’ve also been watching for the return of Lucinda Russell’s Big River, initially pinpointed by someone on TRF (was it yourself or robnorth?) as one to watch. I’m not put off by the heart problem as I think they can come round very well from that (Denman and Sprinter Sacre being good examples). His entry in the Dipper, although he didn’t run, shows they must think a bit of him.
1.50 Warwick Big River 4-1 b365 2pts winJanuary 12, 2018 at 17:18 #1337045
Big River was one of Robs, though if he hacks up at the weekend, he was mine lolJanuary 13, 2018 at 14:01 #1337276
2.05 Kemp Waiting Patiently 2pts win 6/4
Put him in my ATR stable stars comp and think good chanceJanuary 13, 2018 at 14:17 #1337277
Back to – 7.5
Put 0.5pt EW on
Topofthegame at 8s for Lanzarote and
On the Road at 14s for Warwick Classic – he only carried my money as far as the 4th in Welsh GN but will give him another go
That’ll do for todayJanuary 20, 2018 at 23:18 #1338376
-9 after a 0.5pt EW losing bet on Fine Rightly in the Peter Marsh
Hope I can get back on track tomorrow i the Kinloch Brae with American Tom, a horse I really liked the look of last year. He gets 8lb from A Toi Phil and if he stays the extra 4f, has a great chance. Woodland Opera is a nice horse but Jessie said he doesn’t stay 2m4f on soft/heavy so he’s there for a spin and some place money.
2.50 Thurles American Tom 11/8 5pt WinJanuary 21, 2018 at 18:19 #1338498
I guess American Tom doesn’t stay 2m4f on heavy either.February 10, 2018 at 14:02 #1341629
No bets for a while so I’ve put half a point on a Cloudy Dream/Politologue double today just for interest, putting my faith in race fitness.February 15, 2018 at 01:21 #1342298
-14.5…duo beaten by very worthy winners
Grand Nat Trial Haydock Silsol 20s 5pts win
Win only for a change. I’m going to give up EW betting for Lent…how long will that last…this race might cut up and the 3 places look more attractive…March 13, 2018 at 00:01 #1346075
5pts Footpad evens in the ArkleMarch 13, 2018 at 01:08 #1346086
Good luck this week Grass
