Welcome back Jac! Hope you had a lovely holiday and that you are still backing winners this week. It was great to be there yesterday to see Frankie strut his stuff. What a remarkable sportsman he is. That’s another great thing about racing – he’s pushing 50 yet still at the top of his game!
A few near misses for me again yesterday and hoping for a change of luck today.

One more bet for today away from Ascot. I keep reading good gallops reports about Light and Dark and if he can reproduce those gallops on the track he’ll take all the beating.
£50ew Light and Dark – 5-1 – Newmarket 4.00 placedJune 22, 2019 at 10:17 #1446588greenasgrassParticipant

Good luck today Joni…Mirage Dancer the one I’m most looking forward to todayJune 22, 2019 at 23:57 #1446761
Thanks Joni it was a much welcome holiday for us
Back to Ascot…Pinatubo looked a bit special today didn’t he and fantastic to see Blue Point pull off the double I had a big smile on my face for the rest of the day after that and with Defoe and Cape Byron coming home I bet you did too . great to see it all coming together for you now JacThings turn out best for those who make the best of how things turn out...June 23, 2019 at 09:38 #1446775
Glad to hear it Jac. Yes a good day to finish and Pinatubo was definitely the pick. A great week but very hard to make a profit until yesterday so I’m glad to finish ahead. My other two highlights would definitely be Japan and Watch Me who look all class. Mirage Dancer ran a cracker but should have been committed earlier in the straight as we all know that these Frankel’s need to be allowed to gallop. They don’t have a turn of foot. He’ll win a nice race sooner or later.
All in all we are still way down on the year but at least things are moving in the right direction. We’ll keep on trying!June 23, 2019 at 10:45 #1446785
Runs in the Italian Oaks today Joni
4.30 San Siro
Best of luck to her.
Hard to keep up with all these Frankels’ ruling the world.Things turn out best for those who make the best of how things turn out...June 23, 2019 at 14:28 #1446795jimmy giminiParticipant

Following Frankels blindly is a sure way to have a losing season.
Hope it turns around for you Joni!June 29, 2019 at 10:21 #1447218
Thanks guys. Try not to follow then blindly Jimmy but probably know more about them than any other type of horse. Missed a few this week unfortunately.
A couple for today. Limato loves Newmarket and should be good enough to beat these on ground he’ll like. Red Gallileo has the 5lb penalty taken off by Thomas Greatrix and should go close as should the redoubtable Kings Advice.
£100 win Limato – 5-2 – Newmarket 3.15 winner
£25ew Red Galileo – 14-1 – Newcastle 3.35 lost
£25ew King’s Advice – 10-1 – Newcastle 3.35 lost

It looks like a corner was turned at Royal Ascot Joni. I’m sure they won’t be the last.
I hope you have a winner with Kings Advice, as he is my chief fancy.June 29, 2019 at 16:53 #1447292
Thanks Buckers. He ran really well from that draw and had a huge amount of ground to make up. He’ll win next time. Good win for Limato though.
Interestingly I did a bit of research and If you had backed every Frankel offspring this season since March 30th a £1 win stake would have you a balance right now of exactly £0.00!
It’s the Iris Derby and you have to have a bet in the Irish Derby don’t you? I think The Curragh will suit Broome better as long as they go a decent clip which I think they will.
£50 win Broome – 11-4 – Irish Derby 5.20 The Curragh lostJune 30, 2019 at 09:50 #1447323
What a farce of an Irish Derby. There must be some red faces in Ireland this morning!
A few bets in France for today.
£100 win Mehdaayah – Evens – Saint Cloud 3.25 winner
£50 win Lah Ti Dar – 3-1 – Saint Cloud 4.00 lost
£50 win Headman – 5-2 – Saint Cloud 4.35 winnerJuly 1, 2019 at 10:14 #1447387
Another good day with 2 winners and great to see Mehdaayah win so well. She is a Group 1 winner in the waiting. Same to be said for Headman who was super impressive.
One bet for today. I did some work for Hambleton Racing last week and I know they think that Spiorad has been fairly treated for his easy win last month. He’ll do for me.
£75ew Spiorad – 3-1 – Pontefract 4.30
