Newmarket selections Saturday 10th July The final day of the July meeting on Newmarket’s July Course. The feature race of the week, the July Cup looks a cracking contest, but there is also the big handicap of the week, the Bunbury Cup as well. I have suggestions for both....
Newmarket selections Friday 9th July The middle day on the July Course and we have a nice mix of quality and quantity with solid fields throughout the day. Whilst the Group 1 Falmouth Stakes takes pride of place, I am once more concentrating on the big handicaps scheduled this...
Newmarket selections Thursday 8th July The opening day of Newmarket’s popular July meeting takes place today. This is certainly the lowest profile card, but there are two big field handicaps I am getting stuck into.

Ascot selections Wednesday 16th June Day Two at Ascot and the ground will be fast and a hot and sunny day in Berkshire. Lord North’s withdrawal robs us of a great duel with Love in the Prince of Wales, but we still have an excellent day with the Hunt...
Royal Ascot selections Tuesday 15th June Royal Ascot returns and with a crowd of around 12,000 expected, there should be at least some sort of return to the traditional atmosphere of the big meeting. As usual the opening day does not disappoint with three Group 1 contests providing the...
