Newbury race, Doncaster have seen snow and Kelso inspect!


Newbury goes ahead but snow melting into the track at Doncaster has had a heck of an effect on my figures. Post Racing subscribed members will now need to look at how they work.

Some very interesting racing though and hopefully the weather hasn’t impacted on things as much as I fear it might!


12-20 – My top rated has been pulled out, the OMM sitting second best is still fine and dandy and I’m seeing money for two others since they announced this meeting goes ahead, ROSEISAROSEISAROSE 11/1 > 8/1 and OUR DOT’S BABY 33/1 > 12/1.

The horse that should move into my top three by virtue of natural progression (4th highest rated), will not be used by me….the market suggests very strongly it will need this….I’m dutching horses rated 2, 3 & 5.

12-55 – It is GOWEL ROAD the punters have come for since my morning Newsletter went out, 9/2 > 5/2 clear favourite, whilst the Nicholls trained GOOD BALL is 15/8 > 11/4 and friendless. I’ll run with this mover.


2-05 – Another top rated pulled out and here I will simply bin my figures as we are now down to five runners and I personally leave fields under six runners, alone.

2-40 – The market is completely against my top rated here but I’m still gong to play as my Newsletter advised.

3-15 – I’m seeing money for nothing here but it’s going to be a race to look forward to watching. I loved the way THE GLANCING QUEEN won on seasonal debut but here you’d only be ruling one horse out….should make for brilliant viewing…but not a betting race at all.



11-40 – The two OMM’s advised in the morning Newsletter are extremely strong but I’m also now seeing money for DO NOT DISTURB 7/1 > 9/2….I’m thinking three horse dutch.

12-47 – The first of my three rated races here and I’m happy with my figures so, AS PER NEWSLETTER.


1-57 – ELYSIAN FLAME was an OMM yesterday but that meeting was called off….they are getting stuck right in again here 6/5 > 8/11. Looks the most likely winner.

2-32 – My final rated race here and with me being happy with the figures….and my seeing plenty of money for my third highest rated horse 14/1 > 7/1….I’m going AS PER NEWSLETTER.

3-07 – A Conditional Jockeys’ & Amateur Riders’ Handicap that has seen three pulled out. The OMM is still very strong so again, AS PER NEWSLETTER.


12-00 – Two rated races here….this is the first. I’m dropping my top rated horse from my own play and dutching 2, 3 & 4. My fourth highest rated horse is 20/1 > 12/1 whilst my top rated is another they cannot give away if they were going buy one get one free.

12-35 – This race is completely falling apart. I’m of a mind we’ll see the ground riding much worse than advised and my top two have been pulled out. I’m still very much of a mind a profit will be achieved running with 3, 4 & 5, dutched.

1-10 – Two out here. The market says one of SOMETIMES ALWAYS / ULVERSTON wins this. At current odds, a profit worth having is available.



2-55 – The Nicky Henderson trained PROGRESSIVE is drifting badly….opened 11/10 favourite, now 15/8 as money arrives for RONDE DE NUIT 5/2 > 7/4 and LICIT 6/1 > 10/3. It is 14/1 bar these three and if I’d play here it’d be the two being supported….dutch.

3-30 – We have an OMM here that is still strong but you now need to be dutching that horse with VADO FORTE 4/1 > 5/2. I was also seeing support for ADMIRAL BARRATRY 11/1 > 11/2 but that has ceased and now 13/2 is up for grabs. That horse has been missing for 634 days and it’s most likely e.w. money but if you went three horse dutch, I’d not blame you….I’ll be brave and run with the two.

Best of luck!
