And me!   Brilliant run Xtc12, thank you so much.    

Thanks Lads, good to see you are making a few quid while the going is good.

Harry's Bar winning yesterday equals my best of 5 consecutive winners in Ireland. It also brings the Irish tips into profit for Year 5, although still at a small loss overall. Will update tables later.

Double Up again yesterday ..... 1st @ Evens & 1st @ 15\8  :beer

Meadram 20.30 Wolverhampton 1 Pt WIn @ 11\10 (bog)

Showed much improved form to get off the mark upped in trip on handicap debut in C&D contest 24 days ago, coming clear with plenty in hand. Up just 3 lb and can win again. 

O Connell Street 15.55 Gowran Park 1 Pt WIn @ 15\8 (bog)

11/10, career best when winning 5-runner handicap chase at Perth (20.1f, good to soft) 9 days ago, cruising clear. Looks a natural over fences and should take all the beating once more.

Hello Judge 15.00 Kelso 1 Pt Win @ Evens (bog)

€65,000 3-y-o, Martaline gelding. Last of 5 finishers sole start in points but perfect start under Rules when landing an 18f novice hurdle here in April. Type to do better again this campaign. 

Robyndeglory 13.10 Killarney 1 pt Win @ 11\10 (bog)

Fair hurdler. Remains a maiden after 9 hurdle runs. 11/4, last of 7 in minor event hurdle at Limerick (20f, good) 73 days ago. Visor on 1st time. Difficult to oppose on pick of form.

4th & 1st @ 11\10 today

Miquelon 13.00 Lingfield 1 Pt Win @ 6\4 (bog)

Career best when winning 10-runner handicap at this C&D (AW, 3/1) 13 days ago, easily. Thriving since the cheekpieces have been fitted, and he's likely to take all the beating again. 

Swift Flight 17.35 Tipperary 1 pt WIn @ 9\4 (bog)

Fairly useful colt. Remains a maiden after 7 Flat runs. 5/1, creditable third of 22 in maiden at the Curragh (6f, soft) 44 days ago, never nearer. Expected to be bang there.

Double Up 1st @ 6\4 & 1st @ 9\4 ....... :cow

Island Nation 15.05 Huntingdon 1 Pt Win @ 5\4 (bog)

Fair middle-distance handicapper on Flat for Heather Main. Opened hurdles account in impressive fashion at Perth in July and matched that form over the same C&D since. Cheekpieces on.

Future Romance 14.20 Galway 1 Pt Win @ 11\8 (bog)

Landed both her starts on the Flat this year and must be taken seriously on handicap hurdle debut.

2nd & 5th Tuesday

Lindwall 20.30 Chelmsford 1 Pt WIn @ Evens (bog)

Fluffed lines on Salisbury handicap debut in May but he's been a big improver on AW after a break, winning at Lingfield (13f) and Wolverhampton (14f) last month. Likely more to come yet.

Notre Belle Bete 14.20 Thurles 1 Pt WIn @ 6\4 (bog)

Fairly useful colt. 11/4 and tongue strap on for 1st time, creditable second of 15 in maiden at Cork (7f, soft) 9 days ago, best work finish. Good shout.

1st @ Evens & 2nd yesterday

Nina the Terrier   15.55 Chepstow 1 Pt Win @ 15\8 (bog)

Bumper winner who looked potentially useful when making a winning hurdles bow at Warwick in May. The one to beat under a penalty. 

Fissa 15.27 Downpatrick 1 Pt Win @ 10\11 (bog)

Lightly-raced maiden under NH rules. Creditable second of 14 in novice hurdle (7/5) at Clonmel (19.9f, good) 148 days ago. Solid claims. 

** Fissa was 5\4 last night when I picked the selections, will stick with him at 10\11 even though I usually don't do odds on. NR has brought the price down.

1st @ 15\8 & 3rd yesterday

Liangel Hope 17.30 Chelmsford 1 Pt Win @ 6\5 (bog)

Promising type. 16/1, second of 12 in maiden at Wolverhampton (6.1f) on debut 25 days ago, clear of rest. Open to improvement and he looks the one to beat. 

Favori Logique 14.30 Fairyhouse 1 Pt Win @ 15\8 (bog)

Three wins from 6 runs this season. Running well fell in handicap chase at Sligo (25.7f, good, 8/15) 24 days ago, travelling strongly. Has to be taken seriously.

2nd & 3rd yesterday

Seelotmorebusiness 15.12 Newton Abbott 1 Pt Win @ 6\4 (bog)

Bumper/maiden hurdle winner this time last year. Looked like one with problems after but has undergone a wind op and he could easily be a different prospect this time. 

Mrs Milner 14.10 Limerick 1 Pt WIn @ Evens (bog)

Useful hurdler. Career best when winning 22-runner handicap hurdle (12/1) at Cheltenham (24f, good to soft), readily. Off 6 months. Will take some stopping.

Faller & 1st @ Evens today

Visala 17.45 Wolverhampton 1 Pt Win @ 5\4 (bog)

7/2, career best when winning 12-runner handicap at Yarmouth (8f, good) 26 days ago, strong at the finish. Runner-up has gone in since, and she's a big player with the step up in trip a plus too.

5th & 1st @ 2\1 on Wednesday

No No Maestro 15.40 Uttoxeter 1 Pt Win @ 6\4 (bog)

C&D winner who arrives on a hat-trick after backing it up with 20f Hexham victory in August. Front-runner is nudged up just 2 lb so he has to be taken seriously. 

Bright Idea 16.45 Dundalk 1 Pt Win @ 11\8 (bog)

Useful gelding. Winner at Killarney in May. Creditable second of 11 in handicap at this course (12f, 4/1) 14 days ago. Yard having good spell and sound claims again.

1st @ 6\4 & 3rd yesterday

Emblem Empire 19.30 Wolverhampton 1 Pt WIn @ Evens (bog)

Confirmed debut promise when landing 8-runner minor event at Lingfield (10f, AW, 10/11) 25 days ago, pushed out. That race already working out and he can defy a penalty. 

Zaynudin 16.20 Leopardstown 1 Pt WIn @ 6\5 (bog)

Lightly-raced gelding. Creditable third of 8 in maiden at Bellewstown (12.1f, good to soft, 8/15) 17 days ago, left with too much to do. Blinkers on 1st time. Bold bid expected.

NR & 2nd yesterday

Cobbler's Dream 14.05 Kempton 1 Pt Win @ 6\5 (bog)

Impressive winner of his only start in bumpers for Sean Aherne (sold for £85,000) and repeated the dose when easy winner in Warick novice on yard debut on return. Sure to progress and big player. 

Poseidon 16.15 Cork 1 Pt Win @ 7\4 (bog)

Useful winner at 17f over hurdles. Unseated rider in minor event chase at Listowel (17f, good to soft, 5/2) 28 days ago. Makes handicap chase debut and mark could be lenient.

3rd & 1st @ 7\2 yesterday

Manila Scouse  13.15 Pontefract 1 Pt Win @ Evens (bog)

Denied a clear run on debut and built on that when second of 9 in minor event at Chester (5.1f, heavy) 16 days ago. Likely to progress again and looks the one to beat. 

Sweet November 16.55 Gowran Park 1 Pt Win @ 8\1 (bog)

12/1, below form 7¾ lengths fourth of 13 to Accessory in handicap at Cork (8.2f, soft) 20 days ago, needing stiffer test. Every chance of her featuring back up in distance.

  • 2 weeks later...

Nowhere near a computer for the last 10 days, didn't even get a chance to look at the racing pages of a newspaper

2nd & 1st @ 17\2 last day

Norley 16,25 Stratford 1 Pt Win @ 6\4 (bog)

Lightly raced for an in-form stable and only found one too good at Exeter 9 days ago. That form is backed up by the time, and this looks easier, so he's capable of going one better. 

First Touch 15.30 Clonmel 1 pt Win @ 4\1 (bog)

Course winner. Creditable second of 16 in handicap chase at Punchestown (23.9f, good, 5/2) 16 days ago. Switches from chase to hurdles. Likely to give another good account.

Nice little double @ 6\4 & 4\1  :drums

Run to Freedom 19.30 Kempton 1 Pt Win @ 13\8 (bog)

9/2, career best when winning 10-runner handicap at this C&D 16 days ago, readily. Up a further 6 lb but that may not be enough to halt his follow-up bid. 

Wrist Art 19.15 Dundalk 1 Pt Win @ 11\2 (bog)

Eleventh of 14 in handicap at Tipperary (7.4f, heavy, 15/2) 25 days ago. Has good chance on form.

2nd & 7th yesterday

Tamar Bridge 16.15 Wetherby 1 Pt WIn @ 11\10 (bog)

Bumper winner who looked a useful prospect in brushing aside his sole rival with ease in a novice hurdle at Ayr (20.4f) in March, making and quickening clear. Type to go on improving. 

Weststreet 16.00 Down Royal 1 Pt Win @ 3\1 (bog)

Shaped as if better for the run on first start since leaving Oliver Sherwood when fifth of 16 in handicap hurdle at Limerick (24f) 20 days ago. Back over fences now and looks well in on old form.

1st @ 11\10 & 2nd yesterday 

Saint Riquier 13.40 Huntingdon 1 Pt Win @ 6\4 (bog)

Fair Flat winner in France. Shaped pretty well on hurdles debut for new yard at Ludlow earlier this month and will improve. Leading claims. 

Navajo Warrior 14.10 Naas 1 Pt Win @ 2\1 (bog)

Promising type. 6/1, third of 13 in maiden at Gowran (8.2f, heavy) on debut 12 days ago. Likely to improve and he looks the one to beat.

2nd & 12th yesterday

Air Hair Lair 15.15 Plumpton 1 Pt Win @ 6\4 (bog)

Improved when adding a second chase win in 6-runner handicap at Fontwell (19.5f, soft) last month. Only 4 lb higher here so every chance he can follow up. 

War Hero 15.20 Laytown 1 Pt Win @ 15\8 (bog)

Fairly useful gelding. 14/1, ninth of 14 in handicap at Dundalk (7f) 24 days ago. Shortlist material.

Faller & 4th yesterday

Huflower 13.25 Exeter 1 Pt Win @ 7\4 (bog)

4-y-o who improved on opening exploits when landing bumpers at Pornichet/Angers for A. Fouassier in France last winter. Starts out over hurdles for top yard and well worth a look. Has had wind op. 

Full Noise 15.15 Fairyhouse 1 Pt Win @ 11\8 (bog)

Promising sort. Career best when winning 15-runner handicap hurdle at Punchestown (20.9f, good to soft, 8/11) 156 days ago, ridden more positively and landing gamble. More to come.

5th & 15th yesterday

Raasel 15.10 Nottingham 1 Pt Win @ 5\6 (bog)

On a real roll for this yard now, making it 4 wins in a row when easily seeing off Dark Shot and 12 others over C&D last week. 5 lb penalty unlikely to stop him if in similar form. 

Mokhles 18.30 Dundalk 1 Pt Win @ 5\2 (bog)

C&D winner in August. Good second of 14 in handicap (11/2) over C&D 26 days ago. Shortlist material. 

**Raasel was 5\4 last night when picking selections but had internet problems to post. NR this morning price went into 5\6.

1st @ 5\6 & a NR yesterday

Boulette 14.40 Ludlow 1 pt Win @ 15\8 (bog)

Fair maiden on Flat (stays 13f) for Jim Bolger. Definite promise when just touched off on yard/hurdles bow at Worcester (2m) in September and player with prospect of more to come.

She's Some Doll 12.10 Thurles 1 Pt Win @ 11\4 (bog)

Fair hurdler. Fair winner at 19f over hurdles. Second of 9 in novice chase (18/5) at Killarney (23f, soft) on debut over fences 32 days ago. Tongue strap back on. Leading claims.

5th & 2nd yesterday

Millionaire Waltz 17.00 Newcastle 1 Pt Win @ 11\10 (bog)

2 wins from 5 runs this year. Didn't need to improve to win 11-runner handicap (evens) at this C&D 11 days ago by 2½ lengths from Listen Again, well on top finish. Carries penalty. Obvious claims. 

Diamondsinthesand 15.45 Dundalk 1 Pt Win @ 10\3 (bog)

Promising type. 50/1, shaped well when third of 12 in maiden at Naas (5.9f, heavy) on debut 5 days ago. Entitled to progress and should be in the mix with that under his belt.

1st @ 11\10 & 8th yesterday

Trooper Turnbull 13.00 Kelso 1 Pt Win @ 9\4 (bog)

Showed ability in bumpers and off the mark over hurdles when landing odds in maiden here (16.2f, heavy) last winter. Excellent third on handicap bow at Wetherby on Boxing Day and should make a chaser. 

Quilixios 12.50 Naas 1 Pt Win @ 11\8 (bog)

Smart hurdler. 30¼ lengths seventh of 9 to Jeff Kidder in AES Champion Four Year Old Hurdle (11/8) at Punchestown (16f, good to soft) when last seen in May. Big player if on-song here.

Pair of 2nd's today

Hudson De Grugy 14.45 Sandown 1 Pt Win @ 13\8 (bog)

Ex-French bumper winner who proved highly progressive over hurdles for current yard last term, scoring twice over C&D before excellent third at Newbury. Player with more to come. 

Flooring Porter 13.10 Navan 1 Pt Win @ 6\4 (bog)

High-class hurdler who found further progress to land Stayers' Hurdle at Cheltenham in March. Things didn't go to plan at Punchestown thereafter and no surprise to see him back on track here.
