Flat, Hurdle and Chase marks that caught my eye!


Just the 2 hurdlers of which is surely going to be aimed at returning to Ascot in November? Hurdlers Twitter Thread



Plenty of chasers this week including 1 from the Grand National that I think should be aimed at the Welsh National! Chase Twitter Thread

Saturday Preview

Liam looks at some of the racing tomorrow and highlights who he likes for some of the races. These include a couple at Newcastle in the later races that look to be much easier races than what they have been in. He’s already advised a horse each in the Eider Chase & Coral Trophy and talks about the dangers!

3 for the Welsh National

2022-12-18T15:51:10+00:00December 18th, 2022|

A trio for the Welsh National

Truckers Lodge – Paul Nicholls

Truckers Lodge has already competed in 3 Welsh Nationals finishing 2nd in 2019 (off effective 136), 7th in 2020 (off effective 152) and 3rd in 2021 (off effective 150). This year I fully expect Freddie Gingell to ride and take 10lb off in a race named after his late mother AND the horse is only rated 141 now. That would see him running off an effective 131. Remember he was 2nd beaten just 1 1/4 lengths off 136 in 2019. I’m sure they left plenty of work in him when he ran in the handicap at Haydock […]

Have the Skelton’s got a Grand National horse?

Saturday 3rd December Review

Another great day for the Ratings!

We started in great style with Minella Crooner beating RTR 2 I Am Maximus and in total we had 16 TOP RATED winners from 43 races at a strike rate of 37.21%. These included the impressive Jonbon, Landrake in Ireland, Quick Wave in the London National and Ashtown Lad in the Becher Chase Saturday 3rd December Ratings – FULLY UNLOCKED

Crooner beats Maximus – JUST

The Ratings got off to a flyer with TOP RATED Minella Crooner beating RTR 2 I Am Maximus in the first race of the day (remember the ratings for the first race are […]

Handicap Mark Changes – Welsh National Pair!

Handicap Drops for Hurdlers – 1 mistake and dropped 2lb!

Brinkley -2 to 136

Brinkley dropped 2lb to 136 after finishing 9th on his seasonal return at Haydock where he tried to make all the running which is always tough. The drop of 2lb means he’s now 12lb lower than when being sent off 16/1 and only beaten 16 1/4 lengths in a Pertemps Final. A Pertemps Final that I think was a good one as well. Brocade Racing like to try and plan races in advance with their horses (could have a big run from Remastered in the Coral Gold Cup Handicap Chase) and they could be targeting […]

Liam’s Weekly Thoughts – It’s beginning to feel a lot like ‘Flat Season’

2022-04-12T16:27:10+01:00April 12th, 2022|

Guineas and Derby Trials? – It’s the Flat Season!

Handicap Mark Changes!

Liam looks at the Flat handicap mark changes and the hurdle handicap mark changes and highlights future targets such as the Chester Cup, the Greatwood Hurdle and even a long term Coral Cup plan that would annoy 95% of you!

Liam looks at the Chase handicap mark changes and highlights horses that he genuinely feels could end up in the Ladbroke Trophy, a horse he wants to see in the Ladbroke Trophy and one who most likely will be campaigned with the Grand National in mind next season!

Silver Trophy Handicap Hurdle

Champagne Well @ 18/1

I think the price we can get on Champagne Well here is crazy if we are prepared to forgive him last season when he was found to have a hairline fracture in his back. Dropping back over hurdles I think he has lots more to come off just 136.

Some of his efforts over this sort of trip include 3rd in Grade 3 Handicap Hurdle at Sandown behind the now 153 rated Third Wind, winning at Cheltenham in a Novice hurdle and finishing 2nd at Cheltenham behind Thyme Hill with Happygolucky and Some Day Soon behind. After then being stepped […]
