Royal Ascot Review 2021

Why do people moan about rides?

Why do people complain about rides? Because they lost a few ££’s and they don’t understand the difference between a bad ride and an unfortunate ride. Horses can’t simply run through other horses that may be in the way. Similarly people expect jockeys to know what their mounts and others are going to do all the time. When a gap closes it’s not always (or even often) the fault of the jockey going for the gap and yet they get moaned at.

The criticism of Frankie on Stradivarius is ridiculous. The claim that he should have been closer turning in would have meant he […]

Cheltenham Festival 2022 – Liam’s Selections

I think the 2021 Festival has thrown up many winner who will win again and as boring as they are, I think come the festival barring not making it they will be shorter and most likely winners.

Supreme Novices Hurdle 

Sir Gerhard @ 7/1

Sir Gerhard came into Cheltenham 2021 with a big reputation but maybe not as big as Kilcruits and that was why he didn’t go off favourite. He beat Kilcruit well enough with the pair pulling clear. I think the Champion Bumper will work out really well and Sir Gerhard looked to have the most speed out of […]

Cheltenham Festival 2020 Top 5 and In Running Lows

Last year this blog highlighted Concertista @ 25/1 and Dame De Compagnie @ 20/1. 2nd and 3rd in the Gold Cup and 2nd in the Kim Muir. Hopefully we can find another couple of big price winners!

Horses that run well at one Cheltenham Festival generally run well at subsequent Cheltenham Festivals either due to the way the races are run or because connections target a return and here we look at those who finished in the Top 5 of each race of the Cheltenham Festival 2020, the in-running low and where they are now and what the targets could be […]

Cheltenham Festival 2020 – Wednesday Review

In this video, Liam has a look at Day 2 of the 2020 Cheltenham Festival. From the Wednesday he feels there is the next Kauto Star/Denman as well as a horse I really like for the Coral Cup next season especially if his whole campaign is geared around this race.  I didn’t mention him in the video but don’t give up on Champagne Well either in handicaps!

Liam was tasked with finding just 1 horse to take out of each race from the Cheltenham Festival. Check out his Horses To Follow from Day 4 of the Cheltenham Festival below. He’ll be looking at them in more depth in upcoming blogs.

Triumph Hurdle – Goshen

Goshen would have been one of the most impressive winners of a Triumph Hurdle in what looked a quality Triumph Hurdle, that really needs to be taken into account.

In my opinion, Jamie was right to ask him up at the last as he was on good stride and had the horse’s feet […]
