2015 Scottish Grand National Preview, Trends, Tips

2015 Scottish Grand National Preview, Trends and Tips The last of the Nationals is the Scottish Grand National, run at Ayr racecourse, over a distance 110 yards further than four miles.

Having only just made the changes, it’s perfectly possible that some things aren’t exactly as they should be […]

This article, which is about legendary Australian gambler Alan Woods, was written by Tony Wilson, and is reproduced from The Monthly, Australia’s answer to The Economist. * I had my first bet the day I turned five. It was Cup Day 1977, the horse was Reckless, and for a kid on 50 cents pocket money […]

2015 Aintree Festival Day One Preview, Trends, Tips

2015 Aintree Festival Day One Preview, Trends, Tips Day One of Aintree’s three day April Festival features arguably the best day’s racing of the meeting.

Two Thousand Guineas Contenders as 2yos Whilst I am kicking my heels waiting for the 2yo season to kick off properly I thought it would be interesting to look at the confirmation of some of the leading fancies for the Guineas, writes Hugh Fowler.

Double Dutch, 4th April 2015

Double Dutch, 4th April 2015 So close and yet… Good Friday was anything but, as we had the winner in the first leg, and the second and third in leg two, including a most unlucky-in-running neck second. That the third was only another neck away adds salt to the wound. My last day compiling Double Dutch before Chris’ […]

Stat of the Day, 4th April 2015

Stat of the Day, 4th April 2015 Oh dear. Yesterday was an almighty clunker, and a classic case of barking up the wrong tree. True, things didn’t go to plan – the slow pace and softer than advertised ground were against my pick. But, even under optimal conditions, it’s hard to believe he’d have troubled the judge. […]

Double Dutch, 3rd April 2015

Double Dutch, 3rd April 2015 A winning double yesterday. Or, at least, three-quarters of one: a dead heat in leg two deprived us of the full ticket. But at 2/1 and half stakes for 5/1 it was worth a profit of 2.5 points on the day. Two meetings to go at today, and they’re both highly […]

Stat of the Day, 3rd April 2015

Stat of the Day, 3rd April 2015 Ascendant ran pretty well yesterday, eventually finishing second to the horse I made a false favourite, Bombadero. The pick was sent off 10/3 as against the early 4/1 but that really was scant consolation as we continue to search for a first winner of the week. Two years ago this […]

Double Dutch, 2nd April 2015

Double Dutch, 2nd April 2015 Frustrating doesn’t describe it at the moment. So many horses running absolutely no sort of race whatsoever. Mighty Mambo was the latest, folding so tamely after the turn in that he was pulled up a single hurdle later. Scorpion Sting is as slow as mud and plodded on laboriously for second, […]
