  1. Virtual racing is just a random number draw disguised as a horse race. It is no different from the lottery.
  2. I don’t have a massively strong view on it but Hartlepool, bar the Maidenhead game, have been very strong at home. I do think though that it will be a close game so Bromley are a bit bigger than I would make them.
  3. Wow I am amazed that anyone would put in so much work and not attempt to make a profit from it, but fair play you really have done plenty of work on everything.
  4. I usually have a very strong opinion on who will claim promotion into the Football League, but this year I don't really although I do think one team offers value. When Stockport and Torquay played each other last month it was a high class game and my thinking was one of those would win promotion and it could even be the play-off final. That is still a possibility and I do think Stockport will beat either Hartlepool or Bromley at home, but I just wonder if Torquay might be vulnerable. Injuries stopped them from winning the league and it may stop them in the play-offs as well. As much as Barnet
  5. There was me thinking I write a lot for my hunter chase previews! I know you are saying that you aren't tipping anything but do you actually back the horses you like?

  7. Disappointing end to the season with Looking Well never really threatening to win the race as Reikers Island basically made all to score easily. This is weak form and the handicapper should drop him from 124, but I am sure he wont. It was well purchased by the owner/rider anyway as it gave him a first win under rules and he seemed to really enjoy himself. O'Grady's Boy ran really well to finish 2nd, but no doubt the handicapper will hammer him for beating a 124 rated horse by 15L and getting within 13L of another one. If they are going to go summer jumping with him then it was a daft thing to
  8. We finally get to the end of the season and it will be another profitable one as well. I will round that up after today's race, but Monday's race added to the profit as Dressedforsuccess landed our bet and actually ended up winning the race. I did wonder if Gina might be able to not get into a pace battle with Rafferty, but I don't think she had a choice as he is just too free going. He made a bad error at the first and it looked similar to the one he made at Cheltenham, but after that he and Rafferty went some gallop. It is to both their credits that they manged to finish 2nd and 3rd, but it
  9. My brief thoughts and bets for tomorrow morning's jumps races at Hamilton. Race 1 (2.40am) Annunciate should win this. He jumps really well and I think he just bumped into last time. No bet though as he's odds on. Race 2 (3.20am) He's All White faster winning time slower last 600m than Holburt. The Beehive was just behind in 3rd and could improve for that over this shorter trip. Zoffany Rocket didn't jump well enough when 5th in that race. The Poormanzabeel 2 placed runs in NZ last year over a couple of furlongs shorter. Only one flat run a month ago since last Sep
  10. Just to say I got the prices the wrong way round on Dressedforsuccess and Royal Chant.
  11. After putting up Dark Mahler up I was shocked to see him backed into favouritism at one stage because as I said in the preview Point The Way was certainly they right favourite even if I thought his price was on the sort side. As it turned out he was the strongest stayer in the race and didn't even race lazily as he usually does so it was a pretty easy watch for his backers. Apparently it was the 5th biggest prize money for a hunter chase this season which is great for the northern pointers to go for a big pot, but it was a pretty weak contest for the money. Nine Altars was 2nd again in the con
  12. Totals for the Non-League bets at the end of the normal season are 363pts staked 478.82pts returned for a profit of 115.82pts. The profit in May alone was 30.5pts.
  13. I will look back at Stratford at some point, but needless to say from a betting point of view it was a disaster which all started with what happened in the opener. Anyway on to Kelso this afternoon and we have all the usual northern horses out in their hunter chase. Not surprisingly Point The Way heads the betting after winning easily at Perth earlier in the month. He is the right favourite, but he can make hard work of things and that race fell apart at Perth given all bar the 2nd failed to give their running and he had nothing to beat. To be fair this might turn out to be the case here
  14. Yeah that sums county up as they love to shoot outside the box and they have scored plenty of goals that way. I think home fans have helped at certain games for sure since they were allowed back.
  15. Not quite the final day of the season as we have 3 more hunter chases after today, but despite the lack of runners we still have a very interesting card at Stratford tonight. Here are my thoughts on every runner and hopefully we can come out the other end in front. 5.10 Argot - His hunter chase win came over 2m in heavy ground back in 2018, but he does handle quicker surfaces as well. Although he has won over 3m in points he is better over a shorter trip so this test should suit. He pulled up at Fakenham in February although that was his first start since May 2019. After that he has
