  1. Reverend Jacobs 12.40 Huntingdon (E.Way 100/1 Bet365) On the flat Reverend Jacobs has won at Ascot, York and Newmarket. In September 2018 he ran in a class 2 race ridden by James Doyle. He was then purchased by Alan King for £100,000 in October 2018. His two runs over hurdles have been very disappointing. If he can recapture his old form he would have a chance.
  2. Nightfly 2.05 Kempton (E.Way 11/1 Sky Bet) Going on the last three form figures 405 it would be hard to get excited about the chances of Nightfly. However, two of those races were class 1 well above this class 3 contest. She has already won a class 3 race at Wetherby off 125, so the rating of 128 should not be beyond her.
  3. Holly James 1.25 Ffos Las (E.Way 14/1 Bet365) Evan Wiiliams is the top trainer at Ffos Las so all his horses must be respected. In May 2019 Holly James won a national hunt flat race at Kelso. He was subsequently sold to Evan Williams for £70k a figure which suggests the trainer was impressed. His hurdles debut was at Uttoxeter (a peculiar course) on soft ground. When it is soft at Uttoxeter it means it is extremely heavy. I am not sure he liked it there. He was way behind the likely odds on favourite (tomorrow) Prudhomme. Hence the great value in this price.
  4. Royal Vacation 3.35 Wincanton (E.Way 14/1 Bet365)
  5. Yukon Mission 5.25 Chelmsford (E.Way 14/1 Bet365) With the favourite Letscrackon only costing £9,500 in September 2018, I am more interested in Yukon Mission who was sold for £75,000 in October 2018. She is making her debut tomorrow for her trainer J J Quinn who does really well with his two year olds. NON RUNNER 7.40 Southwell - God has Given (E.Way 22/1 Bet365)
  6. Glencoe Boy 5.05 Newcastle (E.Way 28/1 Sky Bet) A £150k foal sired by Gleneagles (the 2015 English and Irish 2000 guineas winner) should not be competing in a class 6 Auction stakes. His two runs to date have shown some improvement.
  7. Yukon Mission 5.25 Chelmsford (E.Way 14/1 Bet365) With the favourite Letscrackon only costing £9,500 in September 2018, I am more interested in Yukon Mission who was sold for £75,000 in October 2018. She is making her debut tomorrow for her trainer J J Quinn who does really well with his two year olds.
  8. You are right Graham! 97th minute!! I was still losing by one after the games had finished but those nice guys at the premier league gave my Leicester players four juicy bonus points, which meant I won by three. There is a God after all.
  9. Sea Sovereign 7.25 Wolverhampton (E.Way 20/1 PaddyPower) A half a million pound yearling, Sea Sovereign sired by Sea the Stars has been a major disappointment, but so have most of these. He has only once ran in a class six race so I am expecting better things from him.
  10. £15 Treble Please Kilmarnock to win 1.60 (Scot Prem) Eastleigh to win 1.75 (FA Cup) York to win 1.61 (FA Cup Sunday)
  11. Murquaab 2.30 Southwell (Win 25/1 PaddyPower) In a class six sprint at Southwell it was a surprise to find a horse that has run at Royal Ascot. At £85k Murquaab is the most expensive purchase in the race. Initially trained by David O’Meara he took his chance in the Listed Windsor Castle at Royal Ascot in June 2018. Now trained by J Balding it is clear from his last two runs that he does not stay six furlongs at this track. Down to five will clearly be in his favour and with his young jockey Izzy Clifton taking off a valuable 7 pounds, he is rated just 46 (53 – 7). His last win in May 2019 was off 64.
  12. Dark Silver 5.45 Newcastle (Win 11/1 Bet365) At €240k in October 2018 Dark Silver is by far the most expensive horse in this race. In August this year he was thought to be good enough to take his chance in a class 2 race at Goodwood, where he was only beaten 4.25 lengths over six furlongs. Having run over 6 and 7 furlongs this drop back to five furlongs could suit, particularly if he starts well as he will be finishing very strongly.
  13. It's Sunday morning and I am just checking my fantasy football. Rumours 65 Percy P 53 Alastair made a great tactical move, using his wildcard this week. I did not anticipate that. Excellent management by Alastair! So with just my three Leicester players still to play and with both of us having Vardy, I am praying for a Maddison hat-trick.
  14. Stephanie Sunshine 2.55 Huntingdon (Win 5/1 PaddyPower) This is a novice chase where all of Stephanie Sunshine’s rivals are making their handicap chasing debut. The experience of completing in two chase runs gives her a huge advantage over this field. This advantage is further advanced by the fact she completed the Warwick chasing course (one of the most difficult in the country). With the assistance of Adrian Heskin (one of my favourite jockeys) Stephanie Sunshine has a lot going for her and is a confident pick.
