February is upon us and, with it, the focus on the Cheltenham Festival becomes more intense. Regardless of the debate about the middle March showpiece overpowering the National Hunt calendar's narrative, there is no denying it offers a rich range of options from an ante post perspective. So, during this short hiatus from decent turf […]

Clock Watcher: Six to Follow

It's been a while - three months, in fact - since the last Clock Watcher and, during that time, there have been some compelling performances on the proverbial stopwatch.

Male and Female Jockeys: A Comparison

The Pick of the Posts 2020

Well, what a year this has been. It was borderline impossible to imagine the gathering gloom as we turned the page from 2019 to a new decade and what we surely all believed would be a fresh chapter full of hope and opportunity. For those of us lucky enough to have never had to live […]

Matt's turn today, taking over from Sam who himself was stepping in for the holiday-making Chris. What a team! 🙂 Saturday's shortlist included the 7/1 winner and 14/1 second (a tasty £98 forecast if anyone was smart/lucky enough to bag it).
