  1. Thursday saw the last hunter chase in Ireland before Cheltenham at Thurles and it was won by a horse who isn't qualified. Jury Duty is likely to run in the Cross-Country at the Festival. Winged Leader was giving him a good race before coming down at the last. He is as short as 20/1 for Cheltenham, but he's been beaten twice by Billaway this season now and it is hard to see him reversing the form. Stand Up And Fight has beaten Billaway this season and bounced back well here to finish 2nd. His price ranges from 14/1-20/1 and that seems about right for me at this stage. The other horse
  2. Chesterfield have drifted out to 11/4 which is good if you haven't played yet.
  3. It has been a tough month although there have only been 20 bets so far and profit has been guaranteed for another month which not all Non-League tipsters can claim (including 1 who charges £600 a season). Saturday sees the FA Trophy quarter-finals and I have one bet there as well as a couple in the league. Notts County v Oxford City I thought I was unlucky not to get County beat in the last round against Havant, but the fact they changed their side so much was proof as to where the Trophy sits on their priority list this season. Oxford's season would end here if they lose and as I ha
  4. Today is the last chance to vote should anyone else want to.
  5. Went with the wrong one yesterday as Road To Rome was way below the form he showed a couple of years ago. Obviously he will come on for the run, but even so he clearly isn't as good as he was and I would be thinking twice before backing him again. That meant Duhallow Tornado had a very easy task, but with the blinkers on he looked a completely different horse from the one we saw last week. In addition to travelling well he also jumped well and ran out a comfortable winner. The 2nd has run well, but I wouldn't want to go overboard on the form. If you did happen to back Teeton Surprise e/w then
  6. Sorry only just seen the post. If it wasn't for the fact that both teams basically have nothing to play for and Kings Lynn may not play anymore games after Saturday then I would have been all over Kings Lynn, but just too many unknowns to get involved at a short price for me which is why I didn't back them.
  7. It is great to see Road To Rome back on a racecourse because he was really badly injured when he last raced in a point in May 2019 and it was thought we wouldn't see him race again. Quite simply he wins this if he is anywhere near the level he showed 2 years ago. The 3 hunter chase wins were all impressive especially his one in the Walrus at Haydock he recorded an RPR of 149. He then ran a cracker at Cheltenham when finishing 4th to Hazel Hill and I suspect by Aintree he needed a break, but even so he still finished 5th. Nothing else in this field can get anywhere near that if if he hadn't got
  8. Profit on Saturday thanks to Eastleigh and Chesterfield and those two teams feature among the tips for Tuesday night. Chesterfield v Altrincham Think Chesterfield can carry on with their winning ways after Saturday's win and they host a side who have lost their last 3 games on the bounce. Solihull v Torquay Torquay are currently miles away from the side who started the season so strongly. It is just 1 league win in 7 now and they weren't great against Halifax on Saturday. Solihull's home form is very strong and they just look too big a price based on how Torquay are playing
  9. Copied from the Haydock review. Apart from the fact there was scope for improvement in the jumping department, that was more than we could have hoped for with Bob And Co with Cheltenham in mind. As he showed last year he clearly has a serious engine and he looked to have plenty up his sleeve. I think Wishing And Hoping has run his best race of the season and he's not got close to him. I suspect once The Worlds End was beaten his jockey eased up on him so he didn't have a hard race (impossible to tell as he's out of shot for most of the straight), but even so he's miles back in 3rd and Rav
  10. Let's now go back to Thursday and the two divisions of the Novices' contest at Leicester. The 1st division looked the stronger beforehand and I think that turned out to be the case. I thought Harry Cobden gave Chameron a very smart ride as he allowed Cousin Pascal to go on down the straight and he didn't panic. In the end he won by just over 2L and his jockey suggested after the race that he didn't enjoy the ground so I suspect there is more to come. It was also good to see his trainer gain a winner from his first runner after taking over from his wife. Cousin Pascal has run a hell of a

  12. More profit on Friday and again I will catch up on looking back at the action once today's race is out of the way. It is a shame that the sponsors have got rid of the Walrus part of the race title, but there we go. As usual there it is a quality looking race which will see changes on the Cheltenham market (speaking of races which has had their name changed!) Having backed Bob And Co for Cheltenham I am clearly looking for a big run and I am pretty confident he will win. Paul Nicholls shares my confidence as well and as I mentioned on my Cheltenham thread he thinks the wind op has improved
  13. So we are down to just the one league for the rest of the season and even that might see clubs dropping out. I can also see clubs playing weakened sides to cut down on costs. I will obviously keep an eye on that regarding bets but as it stands I have 4 for Saturday. Barnet v Woking It seems both teams will be safe from relegation unless the vote can be overturned so I was initially concerned with what team Barnet might put out, but it seems for now it will be the first team and given the improved performance in the win against Halifax and the fact Woking aren’t usually great away I w
  14. There are 7 clubs who voted to null and void so who knows if more clubs will join Dover in not playing.
  15. I will look back at the two hunter chases yesterday in due course, but it was good to finally get on the scoresheet proper for the season even if it was a bit closer than I thought it would be! Today we have two hunter chases in the space of 7 minutes and Tom Ellis has the favourite in both races. I still start at Fakenham where Dubai Quest heads the market at the time of writing. He fell on his debut for the stable when in front in a Restricted at Larkhill last January, but soon made amends at Thorpe Lodge later that month. The real interesting piece of form though is when he was impress
