A Monday Melange…

Whilst thinking about subjects for today’s musings, I decided that I could most definitely not warble on about something political, as I was starting to worry about a perceived negativity towards the sport. It may be true that racing’s various governing bodies have made some curious decisions in recent days and weeks, but the game goes […]

Saturday TV Preview, 16th August 2014

There are just eight races broadcast on Channel 4 in a two hour slot today, further symptoms of the ‘more over better’ approach that racing seems unable to decline currently. Consequently, we need to choose our battles, as anyone expecting to go through the C4 card is surely precisely the kind of punter for whom the […]

A Weird Week in Wacing…

This week has been one of the strangest for many a moon in the goldfish bowl that is British racing. It all started with a known cheat being allowed to ride again, despite having a) deliberately stopped a horse from winning, and b) lied about it in court (i.e. perjury). The case of Fergal Lynch […]

Fantasy Football, and Football Fantasy

For us loyal supporters of non-Premier League sides, the footy season is already two matches old. But the media spotlight only begins to burn all its halogens this weekend as the top tier of overpaid prima donnas pull on their Nike ballet shoes for thirty-eight rounds of arabesques and gargouillardes, with the occasional outbreak of sheer footballing joy.

A Tuesday Placepot…

It’s been a while since we’ve troubled the placepot pools, and I do especially like these unpredictable weather days for such wagering shenanigans. The going at Nottingham tonight is currently good to soft, but the forecast suggests rain this afternoon and plenty of rain during racing this evening. As such, I’m going to take a […]

Double Dutch, 5th August 2014

Double Dutch, 5th August 2014 Grr. I thought I was buying money in the first race yesterday, but the two picks were well beaten in a big shocker of a race. Of course, leg 2 obliged, but the damage by then was done. We’re away west today, to Ffos Las Vegas, for a pair of interesting looking […]

Stat of the Day, 5th August 2014

Stat of the Day, 5th August 2014 Phew! I’ll admit to a feeling of relief after Tahchee did the business, easily, yesterday teatime.

Glorious, And Inglorious, Declarations…

Last week was Glorious Goodwood, arguably the finest flat race festival of them all, in terms of ambience if not race track quality. It was also a week that brought into sharp focus (again) the issue of non-runners. I have a few opinions (shock!) on both, and they form the backbone of today’s post. Let’s begin […]
