    Sandown, Ripon, Navan and Sha Tin….it’s all covered and Sean’s got one for Sunday morning!

    Plenty to discuss this week. The sad passing of Lorna Brooke, the errors of youth and banned substances, Robert Havlin getting 21 days for riding to instructions….and the flat racing Hall Of Fame. Then, of courses, there are the winners from Ripon, Sandown, Navan and that seriously good meeting at …

    Sha Tin, Sunday, and Sean Trivass it covered….with a couple of whispers tagged on!

    This time most years (not 2020, obviously), I have written this from either the press room at Sha Tin racecourse, or my hotel room in the bay – sadly, once again I am conspicuous by my absence, much to the annoyance of the local bars and restaurants, but the racing …

    Today’s Ratings, OMM’s and BF’s 23/04/21

    The NH guys are having their final seasonal hurrah this week with many meetings taking place on ground that will leave some of these horses sore afterwards. The racing we have to work with today (ratings), is absolute pants. Two Class 5’s, one a bigger field that I’d have worked …

    Today’s Rating’s OMM’s and BF’s 22/04/21

    The Rated race yesterday looked weird on paper, was weird to watch but, produced the result the Ratings suggested would happen. It is not often you’ll see a horse virtually tailed off on the flat come through to win it….and cosy, too….but that was what happened. Class 5’s eh. The …

    Today’s Ratings, OMM’s and BF’s 21/04/21

    Racing at Epsom really does make me wince. I imagine the trainers of a few horses that ran there yesterday were telling their owners, “we wont come here with your horse again”. You could see horses like UNCLE BRYN, GOOD BIRTHDAY, RIVAL, ALPHA KING and a fair few more, all …

    Today’s Ratings, OMM’s and BF’s 20/04/21

    It has been a while since I rated races at Yarmouth but in the TWOS Newsletter I’ll post one up, just to see how the figures get on. Epsom….I’ve no kind words for that track. I’ve said it a thousand times, it’s a ridiculous track and if they were looking …

    I love working with Newbury….no secret being revealed there! I feel I am going to have to revisit my excluding big field handicaps as the figures for this race yesterday were superb: NEWBURY 5-05 PERCEIVED DRAW BIAS – L – H – M $* – FRONTISPIECE….+12 – 4TH 25/1 * …

    Today’s Ratings, OMM’s and BF’s 18/04/21

    It seemed like the entire neighbourhood was doing what we were doing last night and I got to bed just after 1-00am….whilst plenty around us kept going. Not much sleep this end and I’m way behind as the cogs ain’t whirring as they should! I’m sure a couple more coffee’s …

    The Scottish National and both Sean and Ron select 25/1 shots!

    A look back at last weekend’s Aintree Grand National, a look forward at Sunday’s Scottish version and those big races at Newbury and the Curragh given the once over. Do Irish handicappers have an unfair advantage? If you are planning on having a small fun bet this weekend, the information …
