Horses to Follow

Below are the current horses to follow. Horses are removed when they win or after 3 runs.

AGINCOURT (2021-08-24) – Very much caught my eye carrying a big weight in the fillies handicap. She was cantering when continually denied a run. One to watch out for in similar events.

ALJARI (2021-02-02) – Unfavoured by racing on the inside at Southwell when tipped, he is looking very well handicapped now and with the yard in great form, I think he can gain a win in the coming weeks. – Sept’21 Off list – 3 losses

ALNASERAT (2021-02-24) – Ran a decent race at Lingfield despite a wide trip, can take a 7 furlong handicap on the AW.

AMARILLO STAR (2020-11-09) – Got stuck in the mud at Doncaster, this horse is improving and is a sprinter to follow. Should take a big handicap as a stronger 4 year old next season.

ANOTHER CRICK (2021-03-09) – I expected a bit better from this horse when tipped at Newbury, a course he loves, but he got behind and could never get back into it. He could take a nice handicap chase on Spring ground.

ARRIVEDERCI (2020-12-23) – I strongly fancied this one at Ascot but not for the 1st time strange results at that course in that ground. Was progressing nicely before that and the form is strong and is still well treated at present to take handicaps in the coming months

ARTHURIAN FABLE (2020-06-22) – Ran a cracker despite a brutal trip/draw. The form is very strong IMO and he can win soon. – Jul23rd Won 3/1 (Paid 4.40 BFSP) off list

ATAVIQUE (2021-09-22) – Travelled very well but could never land a blow in a race not run to suit. She is feasibly weighted at present and, as a winner on heavy going, is one to bear in mind when the ground starts to soften

AWAY HE GOES (2021-08-06) – Unlucky to run into Trueshan, looked the winner when tipped @ 80-1. A slight drop in trip on better ground is what should do the trick for this smooth traveller.

BARNTOWN (2019-12-15) – Conditions and distance didn’t play to this improver’s strengths at Cheltenham where it was nowhere near soft. He stayed on well and has a good 2m 4f handicap in him.

BARON BOLT (28Sep19) – Was well backed at Ripon but failed to show his true running. Not seen since and will be interesting when he returns to the track off a reduced mark of 92.

BEAT LE BON (2021-06-24) – Ran a stormer on the unfavoured side at Ascot and now a 1lb lower than his last winning mark. Loves Goodwood so watch out for him there as he is well handicapped now.

BHARANI STAR (2021-07-07) – Another 4 year old blunted by soft ground, one to watch for, again, on quicker terrain

BLUE CUP  (2021-05-01) – Caught the eye in no uncertain terms midweek at Epsom, looks a winner in waiting. 04June Won 9/2 (2nd start)

BLOWN BY WIND (07Mar20) – Played up at the start Saturday, lost all chance by starting slowly then racing keen off a wide trip. His win at the end of the last flat season was most taking and this good looking 4 year old can surely add to those gains in his next three runs if he calms down at the start! June 6th – Won 6/1 (BFSP 8.00) off list

BROAD STREET (2020-06-27) – Ran too bad to be true, something must have been amiss given his previous form against Bowerman. A mile on fast turf is what he wants. Jul2021 off list 3 losses

Caen Na Coille (2020-01-11) – Can prove to be well handicapped for a yard that knows how to get the best out of them – Mar 7th Won 7/1 (Paid 9.47 on the BFSP) off list

CALLING THE WIND (2021-08-06) – Bolted up for us, keep him very much in mind for the Ceaserawitch @ Newmarket early October. – 1st run 2nd 18/1 (7.10, +2.49)

CAME FROM THE DARK (2020-09-11) – A sprinter to keep onside when the ground is soft. – 26th Sept20 Won 3/1 (Paid 4.78 BFSP)

CAUSTIC LOVE (2020-06-15) – Ran well to finish 3rd considering her stable are woefully out of form. A decent fillies handicap, at 1 mile on softish ground is when to look out for her.

CLONDAW CASTLE (2020-03-16) – Withdrawn due to ground conditions, will go well in chase handicaps at 2m 4f but needs goodish ground – Oct25 2nd 14/1 (5.20 BF Place SP), Nov 27 Won 11/2 (7.74)

Concierge (2020-06-27) – Ran better than first looks Saturday back from a break. He challenged on th wrong side of the track and this 4 year old can win again – Aug 19th Won 17/2 (Paid 12.00 BFSP)

COPPERLESS (2021-04-14) – Another very unlucky horse, looked sure to win when taking a crashing fall, can make amends. 8th May’21 Won 9/2 (6.30, +5.19)

Crixuss Escape (2020-12-23) – This 7 year old was going well before falling 6 from home and could have gone close IMO. I feel he can win a good staying handicap, with testing conditions over 3 miles his optimum conditions.

CRUYFF TURN (2021-09-22) – most unlucky in the 1 mile handicap at the Ayr Western meeting and it looks as if this progressive 4 year old can win again before the season is out.

DANYAH & GROVE FERRY (2021-03-30) – Both these 4 year old’s go on the list as when tipped in the Lincoln, the farcical early pace saw them overrace, too keenly. They can both win nice 1 mile handicaps this season when set up’s are more favourable. Grove Ferry off list Won 7th May’21 5.90, Danyah off list won on 3rd start 9/2 (6.20)

DARK JEDI (2020-08-23) – Travelled well and just failed at York, the step up to 1mile 4furlongs seemed to bring about a bit more improvement and he can take a nice race this Autumn – 05Sept 2nd 22/1 – 2 further losses/Off List

DARK JEDI (2021-07-07) – Ran too bad to be true when gambled on Saturday, surely there was something amiss and can be forgiven – July 1th Won 5/1 (Paid 6.92 BFSP +5.80)

Deputy’s Oscar (2019-12-07) – Looked and travelled like the winner Saturday until getting tired late in the piece. Improver WILL win soon!

DEYRANN DE CARJAC (12Mar20) – Never got into contention after being hampered, look out for him on Spring, faster ground where he will go well! – Jun21 Off list 3 losses

DIOCLES OF ROME (2021-07-21) – Probably needed the run when tipped Saturday but was set too much to do in any case. Watch out for him in the coming months. – Oct21 Won 12/1 on 3rd start, paid 17.50/3.35 BFSP

DONALD DUX (2020-12-01) – Travelled into contention well back off a break, looks to have another handicap hurdle win in him from his next 3 efforts. – Dec10th Won 9/4 (BFSP 3.65)

DULAS (2021-05-01) -A smooth travelling 4 year old, just failed to win for us Saturday but ran a cracker and should be followed. Won 13/8 2nd start (2.88, +1.84)

DULAS (09Jun21) – re-added with further improvement to come.

DUTUGAMUNU  (2021-01-22)Too bad to be true when tipped Saturday, his previous win was very taking in a good time. Still only 4, has scope to improve and I expect him to win again soonest. Feb 19’21 Won 7/2 (BFSP 5.32, +4.23)

ELERFAAN (2020-06-15) – Ran too bad to be true Saturday after being very well backed, a return to 7 furlongs round a bend can see him pick up a win in his next 3 runs.

ESKENDASH (2021-03-22) – Tipped at Kempton, ran well and looked the winner possibly just needed the run after a 6 month break & 1st time wind surgery. A quick ground, flat track 2 mile handicap chase looks his for the taking on one of his next 3 runs. – Aug14 – off list 3L

ES PERFECTO (2021-02-24) – Travelled supremely well at Newbury on Sunday, looked the winner two out before stamina gave out IMO. A drop back to between 2m 4f/2m 5f can this this horse take a nice handicap on Spring ground. Won 1st run (BFSP 2.21 +1.19)

ES PERFECTO (2021-03-22) – Won at odds on for the tracker Sunday, I will put him back in as this is a massively improving horse that relished the quicker surface and can surely take a nice class handicap hurdle at 2m4f to 2m6f which looks the upper end of his stamina in the coming months.  

FANTASY BELIEVER (2021-09-09) – badly inconvenienced by the run of the race at Kempton, did good late work and one to keep an eye on for the All Weather – 1st run 22Sep – 3rd 14/1 (6.00, +1.95)

FISHABLE (2021-08-24) – Couldn’t fathom why he weakened so rapidly when pressing the pace Saturday, I feel he is a 4 year old with more to give and can strike again no doubt at York

FITZROVIA (2020-07-28) – Gamble off the boards lto, never got a run and can make amends soon as – 03Sep Won 8/1 (paid 11.59 on BFSP)

FLASH THE STEEL (13Mar20) – Another given a very poor ride IMO in the very last race of the Festival. He had beat the winner, Indefatigable, senseless at Chepstow so remains very well handicapped and can surely take another decent race soon as! 3rd run Nov27 Won 12/1 (Paid 16.47/3.91 on BFSP)

Fransham (2020-01-11) – Another who under performed on the day, this 6 year old is much better than that and I am sure, when the ground improves, he can win again in his next three outings – Oct30 Won 5/2 (BFSP 3.85)

FRESH (2021-06-24) – Ran a cracker to be narrowly beaten when tipped in the Wokingham, this 4 year old is one to follow in the big sprint handicaps this season. Update 6th Aug – Goodwood was too easy a track for him IMO

GREAT AMBASSADOR (2021-03-30) – Bolted up when tipped Saturday, this 4 year old WILL go on improving this season and can take a big sprint handicap. Update 6th Aug – Cost us/me a fortune when tipped in the Stewards Cup, he was very, very unlucky to be drawn on the wrong side with nothing to take him further into the race! The softer ground also wasn’t ideal but this strong travelling 4 year old WILL WIN a classy 6 furlong handicap/stakes race this year – Aug 14th Won 5/2 (BFSP 3.49)

GROVE FERRY (2020-10-27) – Unlucky to be caught on the wing at Doncaster, should pick up a race in his next 3 runs and could be the type to make a nice 4 year old. Feb27’21 Won 9/4 (BFSP 3.66)

GROVE FERRY (2021-06-24) – A 4 year old still on the up, a sharper 1mile with a bit of cut in the ground can see him win a nice race again

GULLIVER (2021-07-21) – Hampered at the start, race over after that. Will Win at his favoured York, most probably when the ground eases somewhat. – 3 runs 5th Sept included 2nd at Glorious Goodwood 18/1

HAMISH (2020-06-22) – Another 4 year old, given a poor ride at Ascot, can make amends soonest but wants softish ground. – Sept04 1st run Won 9/1 paid 13.00 on BFSP +11.76

HONEST VIC (2020-12-01) – Never made the running in his life which counted against IMO up in Grade when tipped Friday. Granted he faced a stiff task but he was well backed and the way he won the time before at Cheltenham,which was backed up by the clock, another win must come his way this season!

HONG KONG HARRY (2021-09-22) – most unlucky in the 1 mile handicap at the Ayr Western meeting and it looks as if this progressive 4 year old can win again before the season is out.

HUMAN NATURE (07Mar20) – Unlucky on Saturday, loves Chelmsford and can add to his winning record there shortly. – June 10th – Won 9/2 (BFSP 6.96) off list

HUNTSMAN SON (2021-03-22) – Ran a cracker from an uncompromising position to land the place money for us. Faster ground on a flat track (bolted up at Wetherby so something similar) can see him back in the winners enclosure and I am very hopeful he goes to Haydock (as with Milkwood) as there is a 2m 4f handicap chase tailor made for him.

IMPERIAL FIGHTER (2021-08-24) – Ran a cracker when tipped on only his 2nd ever outing, definitely has a lot more to give and one to follow when he gets more ease in the ground.

INVITATIONAL (2020-08-04) – Ran a good race considering she fly-lept and lost 5 lengths at the start! 7 furlongs is what she wants and she can win again.

IRV (2021-05-01) – Another unlucky horse. Has dropped to a good mark now and has some good back class form so look out for him in 1 mile handicaps. – Jun21 Off list 3 losses

JAMAIS ASSEZ (2020-06-15) Looked like he was coming to win a furlong out, moving up smoothly. I think the lack of a run/extra furlong found him out and he can win a nice handicap at 6 furlongs with cut in the ground.

JUST CALL ME AL (2021-03-22) – A horse I backed at Donny in the week, absolutely cantered through that race but a little too keenly and was found to have bled and lost a shoe badly after the race. Can take a handicap hurdle soonest. – Jun21 Off list 3 losses

KINGBROOK (24Sept20) – Ran a cracker at Newbury given how hard he pulled, can win a nice handicap, maybe next year as a 4 year old. Oct 9th Won 14/1 Paid 22.00/4.20 BFSP

KING TRITON (2021-08-24) – Unexposed 3 year old handicapper, can take a race soonest, possibly over 1m 2f.

KITTYS LIGHT (2021-05-01) – Most unfortunate not to win the Bet365 as Sandown Saturday, this improving young stayer will only get better with age and can take a good staying chase.

LADY NECTAR (2021-06-20) – Drawn on the wing and got behind when tipped at York, an impossible task on that speed favouring course. This improving 4 year old can resume her progress and win again on her favoured good to firm ground. Sep21 Off List 3L

LA TRINIDAD (2021-05-01) – Too bad to be true at Ripon, hopefully he badly needed the run and there wasn’t something amiss. Another 4 year old that should be winning 7F/1M handicaps this season – Jun12th/21 Won 4/1 (paid 5.00 BFSP)

LUNAR JET (2020-09-03) – A horse I like who has done us some turns, caught the eye from an uncompromising position at Newmarket. Dropped to a good mark can take advantage on softish ground soon! – Oct14 Won 12/1 (BFSP 12.58/2.90)

MAJESTIC DAWN (2021-07-21) – A non runner Saturday on account of the quickening ground, this is a horse to go to war with for good backend races with cut in the ground. 7th Aug 2nd 14/1 / Sept 30th Won 8/1 (paid 11.50 BFSP) overall +10.04pts

Mack The Man (2020-02-08) – Mack The Man was cantering when brought down and, given what I said about how well handicapped he undoubtedly is, the Imperial Cup/County Hurdle double must be on the agenda with the bonus a real carrot and I can see him doing it with a bit of luck so look out for the ante-post prices, especially the Imperial Cup at Sandown, a course and distance he has already bolted up at!   Jan 21 Won 10/11 (BFSP 1.86)

MARRIONNER (2020-08-23) – Lost lengths at the start at Sandown then got into all sorts of trouble before coming home strongly but snatched up late. This 4 year old can win shortly – Oct 10th Won 8/1 (Paid 12.01 BFSP)

Massa Lubrense (2019-10-19) – Not seen to best effect this weekend, this improving horse still remains one to keep on side. Has won very well on the All Weather so is versatile as regards going/surface and is definitely one to be interested in on his next three runs! – Off List June21 3 losses

MICK MAESTRO (2020-12-15) – Looked to be going well before taking a heavy fall when tipped at Doncaster., can make amends soonest. 1st Run Dec28 Won 16/5 (BFSP 4.73)

Midnight Tune (2020-01-18) – Got took on for the lead at Haydock, will surely bounce back when the right tactics are adopted. Feb 21st Won 7/4 (BFSP 2.94)

MILLTOWN STAR (2020-09-03) – Travelled as well as anything at Goodwood he came with a winning looking run two out but the lack of a run told late in the piece IMO. Can make hay this backend on his favoured soft surface! Mar’21 Off List 3 losses

MONDAMMEJ (09Jun21) – Tacky ground went against him on the day but he still ran well to land the each way spoils. A big sprint handicap is definitely on the menu for him this year on his optimum fast ground. – July24 Off list 3 losses

MR HARP (2021-01-22) – Travelled as well as anything in the 3mile Pertemps qualifier. Looks ahead of his mark and can take a soft ground race this season.

Mr Pumblechook (2019-11-30) – Moved very well yesterday, a win is almost certainly on the agenda in his next three runs

MUSIC SOCIETY (24Sept20) – cruelly unshipped his jockey coming out the stalls, had hinted his turn was near with his eye-catching run the time before. Can get on the scoresheet before the campaign is out. – Off List 14Ap’21 3 losses

NORTHERNPOWERHOUSE (2021-06-20) – Mightily unlucky for the ratings at York, WILL make amends in his coming races! – Aug21 off list 3L

NOT THAT FUISSE (2021-03-22) – Travelled like the winner all the way, possibly the uphill finish finding him out. A big handicap on goodish ground on a flat track can see this horse make amends (watch out for him if going to Aintree, a course that should suit admirably) – Off List Oct21 3 losses

NO NONSENSE (2021-07-07) – Got no run whatsoever at Newmarket, looks a winner in waiting

NUBE NEGRA (2021-03-22) – Was unlucky in the Champion Chase, this improving horse will take another good graded race in the near future hopefully  (watch out for him if going to Aintree, a course that should suit admirably)

ONASSIS (2021-08-06) – Another unfortunate 2nd from Goodwood, a Group race definitely beckons for her over a stiffer 7 furlongs.

ONEUPMANSHIP (2021-01-13) – Caught the eye at Wincanton for a small yard, travelled into the Class 3 handicap like a good/well treated horse and he can take a nice handicap this season. – April01’21 Won 10/11 (Paid 2.02 BFSP)

OUZO (2020-08-23) – This 4 year old ran well to be 5th in a very, very hot handicap when tapped at York. Possibly just needed the outing after being gelded, this 4 year old remains on the up and can pay us back soonest! Oct 9th Won 11/1 (Paid 17.91 BFSP)

Papagana (2019-12-22) – Compromised by the way the race was run IMO on Saturday, this improving mare is one for a good decent graded race, possibly back against mares at Cheltenham or Aintree.

PIKE COUNTY (2020-11-09) – Very unlucky Sunday when tanking and stepped at the last. Looks very well handicapped and will make amends soonest. Oct21 Off List 3L

POPMASTER (2021-06-24) – A horse inconvenienced I thought by the slow ground at Ascot, ran well in the circumstances and looks ready to win IMO when getting the right set up. – Won 5/2 (BFSP 3.58,)

PRIMO BACIO (2021-08-24) – Badly disappointed me when I strongly fancied her at York on Saturday, ran too bad to be true and can be given a chance to show she is Group Class this year.

Ptarmigan Ridge (2019-10-26) – Although a non runner given the abandonment of Doncaster, this horse needs to be followed. Soft ground over 7 furlongs is his bag but he also goes very well at Kempton so he can take a nice handicap in the next three runs I feel, especially with the useful 7lb claimer Angus Villiers doing the steering.

QUEENS CARRIAGE (2021-06-20) – Looked unlucky not to go close when tipped at Sandown, stumbled over a path when coming to challenge. Should continue her upward curve as the season progresses  and can take a decent sprint race. Aug21 off list 3L

RAYONG – Made a massive move against the track bias, another horse that can be followed off list Won 11/8 (BFSP 2.42)

REBEL TERRITORY (2021-08-06) – Rounded off a great Goodwood festival for us, he hasn’t stopped winning this season and definitely one to follow.

RED FORCE ONE (09Jun21) – Possibly flying to high in the class 2 handicap at Epsom, the way he had won previously was very impressive indeed. He is the ideal tracker horse in that he is not the most consistent but has stacks of ability so can pop up with his sights lowered. – Off List Aug21 3 losses

Regarding Ruth (2019-12-15) – Again, conditions were not to suit but this mare will win again. Made nice headway around the field before lacking a change of gear she can take advantage of lesser assignments. Oct 1st Won 16/1 (BFSP 20.65)

REPERTOIRE (2021-06-20) – This 4 year old shapes like he has a decent 1 mile handicap in him so we shall follow him closely on his next three runs. – Aug21 off list 3L

Rosy World (2019-11-10) – Prominent/front running tactics didn’t play to this strapping mares strengths Saturday. Looks well handicapped and can reward the faith in the coming months. Mar’21 Off List 3 losses

RUE DE LA GAITE (2021-05-01) – Massively punted when put up at Wolvo, never got into the race and another that possibly needed the run. She is well handicapped and can win soonest. – Off list Aug 20 3 losses (highly tried)

RUSSIAN VIRTUE (2021-03-30) – Caught the eye with a luckless run at Doncaster, a return to a 1 mile trip looks sure to suit this lightly raced 4 year old and the shrewd David Menuisier can get a decent race out of him. – Jun21 Off list 3 losses

Sams Adventure (2020-01-18) – Sent off favourite for the big handicap chase at Ascot, never went a yard. This 8 year old must be kept onside for the remainder of the season. Mar14 1420 Utt – Won 6/1 (8.20) off list

SANAADH (2021-09-09) – badly inconvenienced by the run of the race at Kempton, did good late work and one to keep an eye on for the All Weather

SEASETT (2021-05/31) – Ran a cracker to finish second, he too is probably one for a decent pot on very testing ground so may come into his own at the backend of the flat season – Oct21 Off list 3L

SEVEN BROTHERS (2021-06-20) – Bombed out when having the form to go close at York, can be given another chance to show his undoubted promise. – Off List Sept21 3 runs included a 25/1 2nd place

SHANG TANG (2021-02-02) – Pulled way too hard when I tipped him in the Lanzarote hurdle at Kempton, he showed Saturday at Doncaster that he has a big handicap in him IMO. He made smooth headway when trying the 3 mile trip for the first time and that big effort,combined with the very testing conditions saw him predictably fade late on. 2m 5f – 3miles looks his ideal trip. Feb 19’21 Won 15/8 (BFSP 3.32, +2.27)

SINAWANN (2020-09-15) – Most unlucky when tipped on Saturday, this smooth traveller looks a winner in waiting and can repay us soon as. – Jul2021 3 Losses

SKY PIRATE (2020-12-15) – Did us a turn on Saturday, bolting up as expected and the drop back to 2 miles was definitely the key and I can see him winning a big handicap chase at that distance this season. – Jan16th’21 Won 6/4 (BFSP 2.69)

SOLWARA ONE (2021-04-14) – Cantered into contention before making a bad mistake, can win a nice handicap hurdle in his next three

STATE OCCASION (2021-09-09) – Desperately unlucky when tipped LTO at Ascot, she should have won. Very well handicapped and must be followed.

Stonific (2020-02-29) – Bolted up for us Saturday, he can surely add to his tally now the penny has dropped. He loves Doncaster and he did us a turn early last flat season on the Town Moor so look out for this useful dual purpose horse, especially if turning up on Turf Moor! July 17th Won 3/1 – off list

STORM GODDESS (2021-03-22) – Unfortunate we didn’t get to see what she could do at a monster price but the weight of money that saw her go from 50/1 into 14/1 at the off was telling and she is definitely one to keep an eye out for in the coming months for 3 mile handicap hurdles.

STORTING (09Jun21) – Another for whom the ground went against on the day, he also finished lame so did well to keep on for 4th. Another decent 1 mile handicap win will come is way.

STRAITS OF HORMUZ (09Jun21) – Well backed, another who couldn’t handle the softer conditions. Another improver that will prove effective in 1m 2f races this season

SULLY D’OC AA (2021-04-14) – Unbelievable he didn’t reel in the tiring front runner when tipped at Aintree, will surely win a decent race, especially when turning 8 years of age Won 6/1 (10.02, +8.84)

SUNDAY SOVEREIGN (2021-05/31) – Narrowly beaten by the favourite when tipped @ 20-1, this 4 year old is very well handicapped and can take a good sprint with soft ground conditions in his favour. – Off 3 Losses

SUNSET WEST (2021-02-02) – Travelled like a decent horse Saturday, unsure why he hit a flat spot but looks primed for a win, possibly stepped up in trip or at a stiffer track.

SURREY PRIDE (2020-10-27) – Hated the deep ground at Newbury, will be the type to make a nice 4 year old and I can see him winning a big handicap next year. Won 5/1 (7.40)

TEGEREK (2020-11-17) – Tipped in the Greatwood on Sunday, Tegerek cantered into contention and looked the winner. Improver can win again.

TINANDALI (2020-07-22) – Didn’t enjoy a clear passage in the ‘John Smith’s Cup’ nearest the rail and once out flew home for 5th. Has a decent handicap in him this year and will pay us back I’m sure!

Tinto (2019-11-16) – An improving horse, the best is yet to come and he can make a cracking 4 year old when he will have all the major 6 furlong handicaps on his agenda. – June 5th – Won 40/1 (BFSP 55.00) off list

TITAN ROCK (2021-05-31) – A shade keen and had a wide trip when tipped at Goodwood, a nice 7F handicap can come his way this season – Jun21 Won 15/2 (9.20)

TREACHEROUS (2021-03-22) – Again tipped Saturday, ran well but just had a little too much to do and another that possibly needed the run. That should have teed him up for another successful turf campaign and this improving sprinter is one to follow. – 02June Off list 3 losing runs

TURN ON THE CHARM (2021-07-07) – Travelled strongly when tipped, blunted by the soft ground. Can win again returned to his favoured faster ground

TWILIGHT CALLS (2021-08-06)His turn of foot was blunted by the soft ground but he travelled like a proper horse. Watch out for him over a fast 5 furlongs on good to firm ground which he must have. Possibly York is ideal?

URBAN ARTIST (2021-08-06) – was another unsuited by fast ground last time to come right back to her best, never being far away and making the winner really earn it. She can pick up a Listed event against her own sex when the mud is flying but is in the Ebor as well.

Velma Valento (2019-11-16) – Smooth travelling French four year old, didn’t get the run of the race Saturday when trapped on heels. Will definitely pay her way and a tilt at finals day looks the plan for her shrewd trainer who has a great record when raiding these shores

VOLATILE ANALYST (2021-06-24) – Ran too bad to be true when tipped at Ascot, he had previously won very impressively and that form was strong. The type to bounce back at nice odds – 18Sep Off list – 3 losses

WAIT FOR THE LORD (2021-01-13) – Dived for the inside of the course Saturday which wasn’t the place to be. A bigger field/truer gallop can see her win again in her next three – Off List May 29 3 losses

WELL SMITTEN (2020-11-05) – Badly hampered Saturday on a couple of occasions, travels well and can win a handicap chase in his next  runs IMO – Off List 30th Jan’21 3 losing runs

WEST TO THE BRIDGE (2020-12-23) – I strongly fancied this one at Ascot but not for the 1st time strange results at that course in that ground. Was progressing nicely before that and the form is strong and is well treated at present to take handicaps in the coming months. Off list 3 losses (Mar2nd’21)

WHATMORE (2020-11-05) – Looks a big handicap chase winner in waiting, this 8 year looks well treated and can be followed.

WHATSUPWITHYOU (2020-11-17) – Agonisingly picked up when tipped Saturday, looking all over the winner but his inexperienced jockey went too soon IMO! Looks well handicapped on that run and this strong travelling horse can take a nice handicap this season – 2nd run 4th 33/1 (BF place SP 8.83) off list 3 runs

WHENTHEDEALINSDONE (2021-08-06) – Won well for us at Goodwood, can continue progressing and take another decent 5 furlong handicap

WINTERWATCH (2021-09-22) – Another unlucky horse Saturday, cantering up the inside for an age and just couldn’t get a run until it was too late. One to follow and should make a nice 4 year old.

WISE COUNCIL (24Sept20) – Another 4 year old, possibly needs a return to 7 furlongs which can see him strike.

WISE WORDS (24Sept20) – Ran too bad to be true, was improving markedly before that can get back on track – Aug21 off list 3L

ZHANG FEI (09Jun21) – Well handicapped IMO, he has never made the running in his life before which were strange tactics when tipped at Epsom. Definitely has a handicap win in him on 1 of his next 3 starts. – Aug 11th – off list 3 losses
