I think that'll turn out to be the worst Derby in years, really lacking in star quality.

He was at his peak a bit before I got in to racing but I've seen the videos, what a champion.

Won the Hennessy in 2009 giving 22 lbs away to the runner up. That's absolutely barmy.

Nice one

Fancied tonight myself rather than tomorrow. We are in Tatts so still got to wear long trousers but polo shirts and stuff is permitted.

Norton is at York tomorrow but he's got a few rides tonight in the 18:30 and 19:05

Willie Muir's yard is on absolute fire at the moment.  He's having winner after winner.  And a load of placed horses thrown in too.

Was going to do an EW Yankee on his 4 entries tonight but missed the first 2 races. A third and a 9/4 winner :no

Got on his last 2 in an EW double though and the first one won at 9/1 (I got 12/1).  Had a tenner single too. :)

His last horse is Pass The Cristal in the 18:50 at Wolves.  Nicola Currie on board who is a very capable jockey.  I got 25/1 and now into 16/1

Almost 2 grand coming my way if it wins.  A place gets me £120.

Dan Skelton is on fire at the moment, lot of short prices but well worth sticking in accas, L15s etc.
Had a word that McCain will start to have a lot of runners in the next few weeks, keep an eye out for Bangor and uttoxeter is what I have been told.

Paula Muir is one of my favourite female jockeys going and I really fancy her first ride this afternoon

Riding again for M Dods.  Had a lovely 11/4 winner on this T/J combo at Haydock on Saturday

2:05 Ayr - Mecca's Spirit - 9/2


Also like Javelin in the 17:40 at Wolverhampton.  Trained by current hot trainer WR Muir who is winning me good money.  Nicola Currie on-board which is cool.

17:40 Wolves - Javelin  - 9/4

Will probably also do the 17/1 double on these two.

Was at Haydock Saturday and foolishly avoided backing Dascombe/Kingscote, even after seeing that Teodoro was Pricewise pick In the RP. Ah well...

Pomme de Terre at Ayr 4.15 looks to have a great chance today, agree with Meccas spirit shout as well.

Bloody Tim Easterby and David Allan won that 2:05

My mates got horses with him. Backed in to 5/1 from 11/1.

Same combo in that 4:15 which will be the big danger to Pomme De Terre I reckon

Takes me back to when I was part of one of those huge syndicates years ago, which was a load of horses trained by Peter Easterby, (Tim's dad).

You would have expected to get some real decent tips, but to my memory, we got mainly losers.

Easterbys are well known for keeping info to themselves.

Anyway, might be off to Sprint Cup day at Haydock tomorrow.

2 I fancy are Hochfeld ( 3.35) and James Garfield in the sprint cup, dettori flying from Kempton after riding Enable to ride.

Me too, went in August and had 1 placed in 7 races.

Was at Haydock Saturday and foolishly avoided backing Dascombe/Kingscote, even after seeing that Teodoro was Pricewise pick In the RP. Ah well...




Dascombe also had a 100/1 winner there today. Unsurprisingly I didn't back that either.

Any thoughts on the Arc this Sunday?

Itís hard to win an Arc off the back of one run but I guess if Enable is as good as she was theyíre all running for second. However if it stays dry Iíll be backing Sea of Class whoís been fairly brilliant herself this year. Sheís barely been asked a proper question yet so Hoping thereís more improvement.

Some good horses out tomorrow. Footpad vs St Calvados in Naas as well as some of last years Juvenile and Novice hurdlers across two races at Naas and Wincanton.

Redicean at 12/1 seems a generous price with a run already under his belt.

Where are you seeing him at 12/1? I can only see him at 8/1?

Nice enough performance today from Kalashnikov on his first outing over fences. One of two small mistakes but all in all jumped pretty neatly and won comfortably on the bridle.

Got 12/1 with Ladbrokes a short time ago, also 12/1 with Coral I think.

Yep Kalashnikov won well, as he should have given opposition. Jumped well as you say, I just wondered if he takes a touch too long in the air if you know what I mean? The best seem to gain lengths at fences with their jumping but he didnít really. Only his first go mind.

Edit: 11/1 now with Lads, but still 12/1 with Coral. Much bigger than elsewhere, assumed that Oddschecker had it wrong but was available when I checked.

Nice one, will have a look around. Yeah I know what you mean, I think the quicker they went the slicker his jumping got, obviously he will have tougher tests in time but I think his jumping will only improve with the step up in grade. He was a horse I followed all last season (backed Summerville Boy for the Supreme though) and think I'll be doing the same this year. Very short for the Arkle though.

Agree. Impressed by both Lalor & Malone Road today. I found Lalor more impressive than Kalashnikov but he had more to beat I suppose. You not think 7/1 at this stage a bit skinny Gerry? A long time to go til March.

Malone Road just seems to have an extra gear to others, that seemed a decent pace they went and he just quickened away as he liked from whatís supposed to be a very decent rival.

Tempted to include both in an early Cheltenham Yankee but wish Iíd done it before they ran!

Beating SP consistently can be a trigger, even if you don't win as you can be viewed as an arber.

Lalor looked good didnít he, canít help but love his jumping technique. Far more polished at this stage than Kalashnikov but canít help this Kalashnikov has the bigger engine for me. 7/1 a silly price at this point either way. Performance of the weekend was Sceau Royal for me, his jumping is perfection for 2m chasing. I think he wins the champion chase this season.
