Best of the Rest, 26th April 2016

As the flat season finally gears up amidst the final throes of another fascinating jumps term, Best of the Rest reflects that rebirth. Old friends have taken their final bows at the Spring Festivals, and it is now time for rehearsals to unearth the shining lights of tomorrow's Summer stage. Enough with the ham prose, […]

Stat of the Day, 23rd April 2016

Friday's Result : 6.50 Plumpton: Acajou Des Bieffes @ 7/2 BOG 9th at 5/1 (Chased leaders, mistake and lost place 7th, never on terms after) Awful run from Acajou. No idea what to make of it except that perhaps the ground was too fast and/or the trip too far and/or (most likely) the horse is not very talented. […]

Stat of the Day: 22nd April 2016

Thursday's Result : 4.10 Warwick: Incentivise @ 13/2 BOG NR () The drying ground was against Incentivise so it was probably a bank-preserving move to withdraw the horse, and we go again on Friday. Nicky Richards has another handicap debutant - Baysbrown (3.05 Perth) - but we've missed the price there, alas. He looks to have a solid […]

Wednesday's Result : 5.00 Perth: Ballyboker Bridge @ 13/2 BOG WON 9/2 (Close up, pressed leader 4 out, challenging when not much room run-in, soon ridden, kept on to lead towards finish) A cracking result on Wednesday, the pick winning at an advised 13/2. I know many of you were on at 7/1, as this one's price yoyo'd […]

Tuesday's Result : 7.05 Sedgefield: Teo Vivo @ 5/1 BOG still to run (Tracked winner until before 2 out, stayed on same pace, 4th and no extra last) I have an appointment at Brisbane Road for Leyton vs Plymouth this evening, so it's an early post, and a pick in the... 5.00 Perth Nicky Richards has had a great […]

Stat of the Day, 19th April 2016

Monday's Result : 4.00 Hexham: Flaming Thistle @ 4/1 BOG WON at 9/2 (Led until 3rd, prominent, led 12th, 4 lengths clear last, stayed on, ridden out) Straightforward stuff for a change on Monday, as Flaming Thistle was always handy, and drew away on ground and at a track he loves. Oh for more of the same on Tuesday, as […]

Saturday's Result : 2.20 Thirsk: Final Venture @ 7/2 BOG Unplaced at 15/8 (Disputed early, not clear run and headed over 2f out, eased final furlong) Saturday went the same way as Friday: well backed horse (Friday 11/2 into 4/1, Saturday 7/2 into 15/8) from an ostensible good draw (both on the rail) that trapped reasonably well but got chopped […]

Stat of the Day, 16th April 2016

Friday's Result : 7.35 Dundalk: Midnitemudcrabs @ 11/2 BOG Result not yet in () I've had to post early tonight due to family obligations, so Friday's result is unknown at this stage... Saturday's runner goes in the... 2.20 Thirsk Alan Swinbank and Ben Curtis have formed a strong alliance in recent times, and their five year record at Thirsk […]

Stat of the Day, 15th April 2016

Thursday's Result : 3.25 Limerick: Routes Choice @ 7/2 BOG 5th at 9/2 (Prominent, some slight mistakes, no impression from before straight, soon no extra and dropped to 4th near line) No excuses for Thursday's pick. Just not good enough. Sometimes it goes that way. Wipe our mouths and move on... Friday's runner goes in the... 7.35 Dundalk A number […]

To be frank, much of the […]
