  1. Not the best weekends racing but still some competitive action. The ground at Newbury despite a 7mm shower on Wednesday evening is drying and is likely to be good with some dead patches whilst at Doncaster it’s good also with a dry forecast. Kelso is slightly worse at good to soft but also drying. Here’s a quick look at the Terrestrial TV races. Newbury 115 A 3m 2f veterans handicap chase. A wide open race that I must admit doesn’t really appeal to me. The drying gro
  2. For the first time in months it looks likely that the ground will ride on the good side at Kempton and that makes the whole card very interesting although it’s back to the norm of soft ground at Newcastle. Here’s my thoughts on the Terrestrial TV races. 150 Kempton A disappointing turnout for the Pendil Novices’ Chase with 3lb penalties to be carried by the top two Coole Cody and Ga Law. It’s the latter that appeals to me. Jamie Snowden’s 5 year old is a fast and efficient jumper who’s impressed in winning his first three chases on good or good to firm ground. His most impressive
  3. Thankfully Newbury’s abandoned card from last Saturday has been saved and from what would of been a rather mundane Sunday afternoon’s racing is now a real treat for us racing fans. The ground is officially good to soft (soft in places) with a dry day there today but with the possibility of showers through the night I think it’s pretty safe to look at the card as soft ground. 115 2m 69yds Novice Hurdle A well contested novice hurdle to start proceedings which has attracted some potentially nice horses. Paul Nicholl’s Good Ball hasn’t been seen since the end of December w
  4. A poor day's racing to my eyes. I like the angle of the Johnny Farrelley trained AND THE NOW in the 2.30 Lingfield. Last seen bolting up in a 2m 4f heavy ground handicap hurdle at Wincanton at the beginning of the month. Obviously that compared with 2m around Lingfield on the polytrack here are two completely different tests but he's so well handicapped back on the level that surely he's got be worth a bet. Currently rated 140 over hurdles he returns here off of only 67 (I've always taken 40lb from NH mark to get a comparable flat mark). He's easy to back with all the money coming for Iva
  5. Cant see Sky Pirate running here after a tough race on Monday Richard. Looks a real tough race.
  6. Well done to the BHA, who seem to get plenty of criticism on social media but are actually doing a terrific job over the last year keeping our great sport going during the pandemic and another master stroke was transferring the whole of the Newbury Betfair Hurdle card to this Sunday following the abandonment of last Saturday’s card. The Betfair Hurdle is run over 2 miles and 69 yards of the Berkshire track and the going currently is good to soft and with rain around throughout the week I think it’s fair to assume the ground will most likely ride soft come Sunday. The race
  7. If the forecast I’m seeing is correct it looks like we’re likely to lose the Musselburgh card tomorrow. Which will be a real shame as there’s some excellent fare there. I’m liking Historic Heart (1.55) and The Golden Rebel (2.25) at the Scottish track but to be honest with it in doubt I’ld rather not waste mine or your time previewing the meeting so it’s off to Ireland again for Day 2 of the Dublin Racing Festival at Leopardstown I think we saw some champions on Saturday with the likes of Chacun Pour Soi, Honeysuckle, Energumene and especially Kilcruit all of whom must feature h
  8. A bumper weekend of racing is in store with the now very much established Dublin Racing Festival taking place at Leopardstown. There’s plenty of rain around in the Dublin area over the next few days and with the ground already soft we are once again looking at very testing conditions. Closer to home (well for me anyway!) the three turf meetings in Britain will all be run on testing conditions (Sandown are actually inspecting this afternoon so fingers crossed) even Musselburgh who usually can be relied upon to produce a better surface – not this time I’m afraid. SANDOWN 1.15
