Winner – Av A Word

June 27, 2017

Av A Word notched his second career victory at Brighton this afternoon (Tuesday, June 27th). He is developing into a consistent chap despite having his quirks and is a credit to the hardiness of the horses bred at Sanfield Stud by Peter Onslow and his fiancĂ©e Ann Harrison. Peter races the three year old gelding […]

Thoughts on Av A Word at Brighton

Av A Word bids to add to his course and distance win at Brighton this afternoon in the 3.15 (Tuesday 27th of June). Luke Morris is once again on board hoping to repeat his success at the seaside venue. Av A Word ran a cracking race last time out at Windsor a fortnight ago and […]

Thoughts on Seneca Chief

June 26, 2017

Seneca Chief runs in the 8.50 at Windsor this evening (Monday, June 26th). George Downing rides in the five furlong handicap. Seneca Chief can probably count himself unlucky not to have won last time out when he got pushed out wide on the bend and finished with a rattle. He won his previous start very […]

Thoughts on Jack Blane at Wetherby

June 19, 2017

Jack Blane heads to Wetherby for 4.45 today (Monday 19th of June). Rob Hornby will be on board for the one mile handicap. Jack Blane is returning from a short break with a little niggle. He spent the first couple of weeks in the swimming pool during his recovery so he has always been doing […]

Thoughts on Socrates at Salisbury today

June 18, 2017

Socrates runs at Salisbury this afternoon in the 5.15 (Sunday June 18th). Raymond Dawson rides in the apprentice handicap over a mile. Socrates hated the soft ground on his seasonal reappearance and was a bit revved up in the early part of the race. He will get his preferred faster ground this afternoon and should […]

Thoughts on three runners

June 17, 2017

Three runners this evening split between Lingfield and Leicester, Disapproval – 6.50 Lingfield, Tom Queally Disapproval had a nice debut at Brighton and learned plenty that day. She showed plenty of pace but didn’t quite get home over six furlongs that day so we have dropped back to the sharp five here at Lingfield. Her […]

Two Runners Today (Tuesday June 13th). Permanent, Yarmouth 4.15 – George Downing Permanent bids to build on his recent second at Lingfield, the first time he had worn cheek pieces. He just got caught in the final furlong so hopefully the drop back from nine furlongs to a mile will suit. The race looks open, […]

Thoughts on Todays Runners

June 12, 2017

Two Runners today Diamante – 3.15 Brighton, George Downing Diamante took a step forward on her handicap debut at Beverley but, didn’t really get the run of the race. She was trapped wide and didn’t entirely convince that she got home over a mile and a half. The ground was fairly testing that day and […]

Brief thoughts on Solent Meads

June 6, 2017

Just the one runner today with Changing in 2.00 at Chepstow and Nuncio 5.10 at Wetherby non-runners. Solent Meads goes in the 2.30 at Chepstow with George Downing on board in the mile handicap. He’s been a bit disappointing so far this season but maybe suited by the drop back to a mile. He has […]
