Winner – Arishka

April 21, 2019

Arishka won the 5.35 at Nottingham over five furlongs in good style under Kieran O’Neill yesterday (20th of April). Following up her recent success at Newcastle she looks a filly on an upward curve. Slightly slow into stride and drawn on the outside she gradually improved her position in the race. Kieran felt he was […]

Thoughts on todays runners

April 20, 2019

Three runners today and Kieran O’Neill will ride all three. Outrage is up first in the 2.00 at Kempton. The tough sprinter has had a great winter on the all weather and has a good record at the track. He is best over five and we came here rather than take a shot at yesterday’s […]

Thoughts on today’s runners

April 12, 2019

Two runners today (12th April) at Kempton. Freesia Gold (second in the photo) kicks things off in the 4.35 under Kieran O’Neill. Freesia Gold hasn’t really had the rub of the green since going handicapping often showing a bit of promise in maiden company. She wears cheek pieces for the first time as she’s shown […]

Thoughts on Tappity Tap

April 5, 2019

Tappity Tap runs today (5th April) in the 7.30 at Wolverhampton. Oisin Murphy rides the filly in the 1 mile 4 furlong handicap. Tappity Tap ran a good third at the track in January when staying on over nine and half furlongs. She showed similar form when third at Chelmsford on her next start. She […]

Thoughts on Noel

April 3, 2019

Noel runs in the 6:45 at Kempton this evening (Wednesday 3rd of April). Fergus Sweeney rides in the one mile novice event. Noel will qualify for a handicap mark after this run which is more his level of racing. Noel faces a stiff task here although a lot of his rivals are having their first […]

Dawn Commando broke his maiden in good style at Kempton last night (Wednesday March 27th) for owner Andrew Stonehill.

Dawn Commando runs in the 6:30 at Kempton this evening. Adam Kirby retains the ride in the mile classified stakes. The combination was second over course and distance in a very similar race last time out. The winner looked well handicapped and duly followed up in a better grade next time out. They have a […]

Winner – Arishka

March 23, 2019

Arishka won in good style at Newcastle last night, she broke smartly and was always travelling comfortably, two furlongs from home jockey Kieran O’Neill asked her to pass the leader and the race was never in doubt, the only question being the margin of victory as she skipped clear for her owners the Diskovery Partnership […]

Thoughts on Arishka

March 22, 2019

Arishka runs in the 8.00 at Newcastle. Kieran O’Neill rides the filly in the 5 furlong handicap. Arishka put her best run to date at Newcastle over six furlongs when finishing second, she made all the running that day just to get pipped late on so the drop back to five should be fine. The […]
