No prizes for guessing which ones Grass lol. Talking of those horses that I keep following, no better example than old Frodon. Love him. Going to be a nervy old three miles on Sunday
Good old Saltonstall, and the sentimentality approach (ie not putting them up) paid off nicely. Falcon Eight won that like a proper old pro, and though he was too short to bet him on his own, he did boost the perms a fair bit
Good day all round then, especially with main bet Sir Bob winning and King Of May placing. Wanted to bet Monday, but couldn’t find one, so it’s a very rare venture to Lingfield today. Main focus of day is a nice clear round for Iroko at Warwick
1347 Lingfield – Wynter Wildes 18’s EW 4PlsNovember 7, 2023 at 17:16 #1669704
I’m not a big fan of listening to what trainers say but post race interview for iroko says he’s likely to go for the turners. In case u missed it. Nice run today from himNovember 8, 2023 at 01:50 #1669734
Yeah, same here mate, but decided tonight to cover him for Turners. He’s my big Novice Chaser for the season, so I’ve covered him for the three Novice Chases now. I can cash him out for NH Chase, and though I share your scepticism for trainer comments, I reckon I’ll end up cashing him out (which I did this morning)
Some performance today as you say Ken, and plenty more to come.
Great run from Wynter Wildes today, and really happy with that. Found one bet tomorrow, snd I’ll try to keep it going with Sir Chauvelin at Kempton
1930 Kempton – Sir Chauvelin 18’s EWNovember 8, 2023 at 19:44 #1669775
Another day another Bobby boomer. Nice work mate. Hit 140s in play.November 8, 2023 at 19:45 #1669776
Smart moving cashing out the iroko NH chase I reckon, can’t see it landing up there nowNovember 8, 2023 at 20:37 #1669782
Thanks mate. Unbelievable win that, though I wish I had got a slice of that 140’s
As for Iroko, yeah agree, just the sensible thing to do.November 9, 2023 at 07:49 #1669794
Well after Sir Chauvelin last night, I have to keep going.
Two good days on the All Weather for me, which is something I don’t often say, but back to the old routine, and after those bets, going with a few on a decent days Racing.
Midnightreflection is a “Midnight” that has made these threads before, snd although maybe place chance only, I’ll risk her
Fifty Ball is a horse who’s never really caught my eye, but looks too big to me, while old pal Janidil looks ok at 11-2. Peak Allaho would lap him, but 18 months is a fair old layoff, though I suspect Mullins might know more about the horse’s wellbeing than me. He’ll depend on earlier bets I reckon
Most interesting horse today is The Big Galloper. Was one of my big hopes for last season, but after getting a few entries, he obviously had a setback and didn’t run. He’ll surely need this, but hoping he can be a Pertemps horse. Potential definitely there, but he’ll surely need this
I’ll decide on Janidil later, but after a few good days, happy to have three at least on a busy Thursday, although certainly not going mad.
Market against The Big Galloper just now, so holding off. Took Janidil instead
Fifty Ball non runner
1205 Ludlow – Midnightreflection 20’s EW 4Pls
Clonmel Oils – Janidil 11-2
November 10, 2023 at 23:55 #1669996
Another decent return yesterday, with Midnightreflection running a blinder into second.
The Big Galloper looks worth following too, and I hope to see him in a Pertemps Qualifier.
Couldn’t find a bet today, but most interesting runner for me was Hunting Brook. Far too short for me, but he was a notebook horse for me last year when with Emma Lavelle, and he should win more races to add to his victory today, now that he’s with Gordon Elliot
Really good days racing, and most of these covered in Big Races. It was tough leaving out Gesskile, while I need a bigger price for Remastered. I nearly cashed out on Frodon, given he was so short, and the number of bets I have, but he’s been incredibly good to me, so I have to stay loyal. Sam Brown I really like for round Ascot this year, but he could blow that chance tomorrow, and I rate him highly. Big player in The Badger Beer
Couple not mentioned in Big Races. Wincanton is the right kind of track for Midnight Midge, and he’s got the assistance of Elizabeth Gale, who won well on Celebre D’Allen the other day. Legacy Thor got me a huge EW last year, and back with him today.
Seriously busy day for me, and as per, I’ll be looking to claw back stakes where possible.

November 15, 2023 at 13:00 #1670504
Midnight Midge got things off to a good start on Saturday, and it went so badly afterwards that the only other consolation was stake back on Percussion and Legacy Thor. That was a small consolation on a tough day.
Back on it today though, and have to give Geremia a chance at Kempton tonight
Missed the 16’s, and hoping to beat current 11’s
Settled for 11’s
Geremia 11’sNovember 17, 2023 at 01:00 #1670684
Reasonable run from Geremia, and just needed an extra four furlongs. At least. Still, I’ll take the good run after that lot on Saturday
This was hard work last season this Cheltenham Meeting, so although still got a few bets, stakes are more cautious.
All listed in Big Races. I’d like to lay off Didero Vallis (can’t cash out), but I’ll decide in morning. Doesn’t help that I just want to see Galvin win
Edit – Just letting it run

Very happy, if not very luck yesterday.
Homme Public was a bit disappointing throughout the race yesterday, and didn’t look a natural chaser. Very sore on JPR. Still, got to take it, and an 8-1 winner with Prince Zaltar 40’s EW, and Didero Vallis 66’s EW, made it a very good day.
Latitude main fancy today. I haven’t topped up Torn and Frayed, though I will if he hits 33’s. Few non runners, so I’ve added Black Gerry. Expecting Haafapiece to run well yesterday. Hoping Real Steel can make the frame.
Should really leave Lucky Lyreen and Top Moon alone, but off the back of a good day, I’ll only have small interests on them

Disappointed with most of them yesterday, and the only return was from Real Steel, with both Latitude & Torn and Frayed bigger bets.
Still dining out on Friday though, and a few bets again today
Cavani – Es Perfecto 9’s
Cavani – Mr Saxobeat 16’s EW 3pls

That decent day on Friday really made the difference last weekend, as the weekend went downhill.
Coko Beach winning The Troytown had me inventing new swear words, but both Run Wild Fred and Thedevilscoachman high on the shortlist after that for The Paddy Power Chase
These all covered in Big Races, and I’ll definitely take the stake back on Haut Estime as she continues to shorten
Betfair Stayers – Schalke EW6Pls/40’s
Betfair Chase – Royal Pagaille 10’s
Hurst Park – Funambule Sivola 12’s
Multiple Chase – Haut Estime 33’s EWNovember 25, 2023 at 23:38 #1671869
Chuffed to bits with Royal Pagaille today, one of those that I’ve put up so many times, and he’s just a very likeable type. He deserved that today, and great to see him get a G1. The 10’s was unreal
Laying off stake on Haut Estime made it a better day too. She was beaten early on, and that was a wise decision. I just wish I’d had that option with Schalke.
Cracking days racing Ireland tomorrow. It’s unlikely that Stattler will do it tomorrow, but I can’t let that 28’s go. Added him to my Cheltenham bets, as if that run in last years Gold Cup didn’t happen.
I’m really pleased to see En Beton back. Notebook horse of mine two years back, snd he’s preferred to The Big Galloper, who was supposed to be my Pertemps horse this year.
Wa Wa is one of I’ve already bet this year, and he’s been poor, but I’m drawn back in, with him dropping in grade.
Same applies to Meetingofthewaters, who I’ve already tried recently. Hard to figure out the plan with him, but you can be sure he’ll win this year. Might as well persevere.
In The Risk of Thunder I’ve chanced Three By Two. In the next, Tullyhill looks rock solid, but I think that For Fear Of Frost had EW potential
Lot of selections, but paid for by Royal Pagaille, so just went for it
Risk of Thunder – Three By Two 8’s
1245 Punchestown – Wa Wa 33’s EW 6pls
John Durkan – Stattler 28’s EW
1450 Cork – En Beton 9-2
1525 Cork – Meetingofthewaters 17-2November 30, 2023 at 21:05 #1672295
Meetingofthewaters a nice winner on Sunday, while I got money back from Three By Two in running. I’d rather have got money back for Wa Wa, as he was a bigger bet. He’ll definitely win before the season’s out.
En Beton blew up quickly, while I was genuinely chuffed that Stattler ran well for a long way.
One bet tomorrow, with Goose Man at Newbury, as per race thread. Hopefully it beats the weather
Coral Racing Club Chase
Goose Man 25’s EW 4PlsDecember 3, 2023 at 00:49 #1672566
Really gutted about Midnight River. One of my bigger Anteposts, and I hate the not knowing how he’d have got on if he stood up
Decent card at Fairyhouse, but sticking to the Porterhouse, though I did look at Eagle Fang, Sharjah, and Sir Allen
