Double Dutch, 20th March 2015

Double Dutch, 20th March 2015 Wow! Rosenbaum’s gutsy win aside, I got Thursday spectacularly wrong. I have high hopes for both picks at Chepstow, but was equally frustrated and disappointed at what I saw. It’s A Long Road ran poorly and was pulled up well before the finish, whilst Eaton Rock fared little better, coming […]

Stat of the Day, 20th March 2015 Rock Charm firmed up slightly in the market to be sent off as the 2/1 favourite and ran pretty well, despite finishing third. The Chelmsford track seems to be riding deep/slow and it looked a very open race approaching the final furlong. Several runners, including our own, tried to kick […]

Double Dutch, 19th March 2015 On another day where we were once again reminded of the small margins between success and failure, we missed a 12.13/1 double by a head, as Enlace was unable to peg back the winner of the 8.10 at Chelmsford. This was a pity, after Flying Bear had finished like a […]

Stat of the Day, 19th March 2015 Varsovian provided our second winner on the bounce as the greenshoots of recovery threaten to poke their heads out, but it looked for much of the race that he was going to be beaten. He was slowly away and out at the back looking for gaps in the pack. He […]

Double Dutch, 18th March 2015 I said yesterday that I like to follow Nigel Hawke’s handicappers and Midnight Legend’s offspring and they combined with a comfortable 8 length win at Exeter for us to complete one half of what should have been a routine double had Harwoods Star not fluffed his start. He reared and […]

Stat of the Day, 18th March 2015 Follow the Tracks was withdrawn from the race yesterday at 3.30pm a little more than 90 minutes before the scheduled off time, with colic cited as the reason for his non-participation: we obviously wish him well. So, with no action to report upon, let’s head straight to Essex for some […]

Hi Everyone, There was no roundup last week due to the Cheltenham Festival, so it has been a fortnight since I last updated you with the progress of the Geegeez System trials and in that time we had four trials reach the end of their 60-day evaluation period and unfortunately only one of them passed […]

Double Dutch, 17th March 2015 It was a quickfire double from back to back races on Monday that was a very pleasant start to our week. Throw the added bonus of a 6.7/1 exacta from race 1 and it was certainly a decent day for us. Take The Crown led Money For Nothing home by […]

Stat of the Day, 17th March 2015 We got a very welcome and long overdue win yesterday courtesy of Ballyegan who was heavily backed in from our advised 9/4 BOG price to a very short 6/4 at the off. A friend of mine emailed me around lunchtime saying it was about the 15/8 mark and I explained […]

Double Dutch, 16th March 2015 A 2nd, a 3rd, a 4th and a non-runner was the outcome from Saturday and whilst that’s pretty consistent selecting getting a run for our money, it’s still a case of close, but no cigar! It meant a loss of 2pts on the day, but didn’t detract form the good […]

Stat of the Day, 16th March 2015 It was, sadly, a case of right stats, wrong horse at Newcastle on Saturday, as Team Reveley brought home two winners from their four hurdlers, but ours wasn’t one of them! Waltz Darling was held up for a late challenge and started to make headway from 2 out, but was […]

Stat of the Day Update: 09/03/15 to 14/03/15 Five runners and five losers this week isn’t quite what I had in mind when compiling the weekly update seven days ago, but you don’t always get what you want in life! Results reading 45245 suggest a fair level of consistency, but also that they were consistently […]

Double Dutch, 14th March 2015 I thought that Pinzolo was long at 7/2 yesterday and so it proved to be the case as he won by three lengths at half that price (7/4) with Mymatechris a further length back in third place at 7/2, having been weak in the market. All of which set us […]

Stat of the Day, 14th March 2015 Cappielow Park was a non-runner yesterday, so I’ve nothing to report on, meaning I can get straight on to Saturday’s selection, which goes in the… 4.00 Newcastle: Where I’ve just taken 3/1 BOG on Waltz Darling, who is trained by Keith Reveley and will be ridden by his son James […]
