Cheltenham Notebooks, straight into the Winners Enclosure!

With the NH Season getting into action at Chepstow this weekend, we’ve already seen the benefit of taking notes from the Cheltenham Festival! Notebook from Cheltenham 2020: Boodles Hurdle, Thyme White Not really a case of an eye-catcher in terms of his future over hurdles, but one that will be of interest when sent over […]

Free Bet for Saturday 3rd October.

Early Advice for Saturday: Qatar Prix de Royallieu: 2.15 Longchamp – Wonderful Tonight (e/w) generally 5/1 This filly had a fair amount of attention on social media recently when her trainer David Menuisier “tongue in cheek” suggested he might supplement her for the Arc on Sunday. Connections have sided with this slightly easier option and […]

A Good Weekend for the Ten To Follow.

A couple of nice winners for the FREE Ten To Follow with Mogul winning the Grand Prix De Paris and Search For A Song winner her 2nd Irish St Leger. Mogul, 3yo Trained by A O’Brien Despite a very good 2yo campaign, we’d expect to see Mogul come into his own as a 3yo, as […]

Kauto Star “A Legend”

One of our extremely talented members has an unbelievable ability to catch our equine stars on canvas. Here is one of his latest pieces, Kauto Star, and we think you’ll agree it’s top class….. He has kindly agreed for Wider Horizens to make this painting available as a print to their followers. This Limited Edition Print, is now […]

Great to see Mogul winning…

Always good to see one of our Ten To Follow horses justify their inclusion.. Whilst the season didn’t start quite so well for Mogul, albeit his trainer kept stating he’d need a few runs to hit form and he did just that at Goodwood, winning the Gordon Stakes in great style. With the potential of […]

Just missed a 66/1 place…

3.15 Haydock – Glencadem Glory (e/w) –  Top 5 Places generally available. One of our advices in the Northumberland Plate, but having travelled nicely early on he clipped heels with a horse in front of him as the race got interesting and lost all chance. Whilst he’s not proven on ground as soft as this, […]

Free Notebook Horse: Barbill – WON 15/2

One of our Free Notebook Horses for the season made his reappearance on Thursday 25th of June at Haydock. The race was over 6 furlongs, but the fast ground suited and Haydock is a relatively easy track. Barbill, 4yo Trained by M Channon He had a very busy time of things as a 3yo running […]

Royal Ascot Week: Results.

A tough competitive week at Royal Ascot, with some big fields, changing weather and ground conditions, a draw bias as well as a number of runners backing up after a recent run quicker than usual. That said, it was a still a superb week of racing where we showed a nice level stakes profit of […]

One that got away…

Tuesday 9th June: One that made appeal today was Cap Francais in the 3.45 ay Haydock, who now dropping back in trip looks potentially well handicapped. He was one of our Ten to Follow last season and having looked a potentially high class colt early in the season his form tailed off having been tried […]
