Thursday 1st August


1.50  Almania 9-1 ( Money back as cash if your horse finishes 2nd with @skybet. The booking of Atzeni on Almania catches the eye since he has a good strike rate when he is booked for Sir Michael Stoute horses at Goodwood. He is 3/5 for the legendary trainer. So it’s worth a few quid each way in a very tricky race.)

2.25 Threat 5-2

3.00 Spanish Mission 5-1

3.35 Meydaayih 7-2 , saver Maqsad 7-1 (Notebook – dropped back in trip now and that should suit her better than at Epsom. Was always travelling well in the Oaks till last 2 furlongs and  she didn’t stay at the end. Good each way chance ) 

5.20 Get The Rhythm 11-1 ( 5 places with most bookies)


Trixie – 2.25 Threat 5-2 , 3.00 Spanish Mission 9-2 , 3.35 Meydaayih 3-1 ( @ladbrokes)

E/w Trixie – 1.50 Almania 9-1 , 3.35 Maqsad 7-1 , 5.20 Get The Rhythm 10-1 ( @bet365)


* It’s Day 3 of Goodwood Festival and so far so good with some decent winners. Tomorrow looks another tricky day and as always do stay disciplined and don’t get carried away as at some point this week we will come back crashing to earth . Lets hope for a few winners tomorrow. Good luck

I don’t think there will be more gifts from Skybet or betfred tomorrow re price boosts double 🙂

Wednesday 31st July



1.50 Dubawi Fifty 6-1 ( Money back up to £20 with @skybet if your horse finishes 2nd or 3rd) 

2.25 Sir Ron Priestley 15-2 & Future Investment 10-1 (Notebook)

3.00 Liberty Beach 7-4

3.35 Too Darn Hot 5-4 ( Lord Glitters looks a big price to me and could possibly gets a place in that race. I wouldn’t put anyone off backing him )

4.10 Flippa The Strippa 11-4


Trixie – 3.00 Liberty Beach 6-4, 3.35 Too Darn Hot 5-4, 4.10 Flippa The Strippa 11-4 ( @ladrokes)

E/w Trixie – 1.50 Dubawi Fifty 6-1 , 2.25 Sir Ron Priestley 7-1 , 3.35 Lord Glitters 7-1

* Bankroll management is important now you have won a few quid on the machines such as Enable, Stradivarius,Laurens or Pinatubo. Don’t think everyday is Xmas as its not an easy game. Just be disciplined and stay focus all the time. It looks a bit tricky tomorrow but lets hope for few winners. Good luck

Tuesday 30th July



1.50 Soto Sizzler 10-1 & Jazeel 11-1 (Notebook ) ( Money back as cash if 2nd ,3rd or 4th on Skybet ,max refund £20 )

2.25 Pinatubo 11-8

3.00 Hey Gaman 7-2

3.35 Stradivarius 4-5 – Our Champ should continue to dominate the staying division and he is back to defend his crown. People are always trying to take him on but he keeps proving them wrong. He is just like Enable in that he has a huge heart and if you eyeball try to get ahead of him in the last 1/2 f he will still find a way to battle back and win. This is the trademark of champions and he will be winning tomorrow. I am surprised he is still 8-11 but will be probably 1-2  at the off tomorrow.

Cross Counter might get closer to him over a shorter trip and we have to remember he was given a ‘cigar’ ride at Ascot if you remember the race.He might be ridden closer to the pace tomorrow with Dee Ex Bee making the running. The latter is a place banker material for those that don’t like backing odds on. It’s a 3 horse race and Stradivarius is fancied to do the business again. The 9-4 double with Enable looks tasty now 🙂

4.10 Written Broadcast 5-2

4.45 Boom The Groom 16-1 ( This horse won this race for us in 2016 and he did it off a 15lb higher mark. He has the blinkers applied to him tomorrow and Mr Carroll has a fantastic record with first time blinkers in the last few years. It’s worth a few quid each way with bookies paying 4 places)

5.15 Layaleena 10-1 ( 4 places with bookies)


Lucky 15 – 2.25 Pinatubo 11-8 , 3.00 Hey Gaman 7-2 , 3.35 Stradivarius 4-6 ,4.10 Written Broadcast 5-2

E/w Trixie – 1.50 Soto Sizzler 10-1 , 3.35 Cross Counter 7-2 , 4.45 Boom The Groom 16-1

* Might get a Pinatubo-Stradivarius double with Betfred or Skybet if ever you fancy it.

Saturday 27th July



1.50 Summer Romance evens

2.25 Wings of Time 4-1

3.00 Ripp Orf 10-1 & Lake Volta 20-1 ( 5/6 places with most bookies)

3.40 Enable 4-6 – The champion filly is back in an attempt to regain her crown and she is very hard to oppose based on what we saw in the Coral Eclipse recently. She can continue her winning streak and win her 11th consecutive race ,nine of which would be at Group One level. I really can’t find a fault in her but I also know that nothing is a certainty in racing. Crystal Ocean is the biggest danger having won the Prince of Wales’s Stakes at Royal Ascot back in June. He is the ‘highest’ rated horse in the world right now and Enable will have her work cut out tomorrow. But I still think she will find a little bit more in the straight to win as it’s very hard to get past or eyeball her. She did sweep him aside at Kempton last year but we have to remember she was getting all the allowances that day too. These two should fight the finish ( 2 horse race)  and I expect Defoe to get a place as he is another progressive horse that has won at the highest level this season. The Queen of Turf to make history tomorrow hopefully !

4.15 Sun Power 9-2

5.20 Vivid Diamond 6-1


York – 2.05 Bedouins Story 8-1 & Tommy Taylor 9-1 (Notebook) , 3.15 Regal Reality 6-4

Fantasy Premier League 2019-2020

Fantasy Football

The Fantasy Premier League will be run again this year like it has done in the last 8 years. There were lots of people who entered teams last year (102) and there were some good winners at the end of the season with around £510 being shared. So we will adopt the same format again this season where we will compete in the private league. There will be an entry fee of £5  so we all keep the interest going till next May.

It will be run via the official site Premier League Fantasy Payment can be made via paypal ( . Once this is done I will send you the code to join via DM. Also send me a message on twitter (anyone can message me whether I follow you or not ) me once you have paid so that I know who you are.

When making payment please send the £5 to Family and Friends so that paypal don’t take any commission.  If you don’t have paypal DM me and you can do a bank transfer like a few did last year but I prefer paypal

Prizes will be based on number of entries. If there are around 120 people like last year then the winner will get 50% of money in pot ,2nd – 20% ,3rd – 10%,4th -10%,5th- 5 % and another 5% will be given to the person who will achieve most number of points in any 38 weeks. EVERYTHING in the pot will be shared among the winners .

I have created a list on my twitter (  )and will add people  so that everyone is aware of how many are competing before the season starts. I just think it will be good banter among us once the season starts and a little distraction away from racing when footie is on. Deadline to enter is 9th August 5pm.

Few problems encountered last few years –

(1) Once given the code 3-4 people were sharing it with their friends and they were entering the league without me knowing. Please keep the code to yourself once you have paid. If you want your uncle,auntie,neighbour  etc to enter please tell them to get in touch with me via twitter or email.

(2) Few people were entering 2/3 teams as well and I had to go through the list one by one to find the culprits.

(3) I won’t see your tweet If your twitter is private and I don’t follow you if you contact me. Everyone can send me DM whether am following you or not. I had 2 people last year who paid but I had to refund them since I never knew who they were.
