Daily Double: May 30

SHEDLOADS of racing and big fields today, so plenty to go at. ZANETTO has been knocking at the door and today could be his day at Newmarket (4.30). He reappears quickly after a solid second at Goodwood last week and a huge plus is that Richard Hughes takes the ride. The other selection is… Read More

Daily Double: May 29

TODAY’S advice is an each-way double. BATHOS kicks things off in the opener at Newcastle. He has been as green as grass in his two runs so far but has shown definite promise, especially at Beverley last time when he got going too late over 5f. Today’s extra furlong looks badly needed and hopefully the penny will drop. I suspect he is better than he has shown so far. Read More

Daily Double: May 28

WONDERFUL card at Sandown tonight with the Brigadier Gerard Stakes and the Henry II the highlights, supported by a competitive undercard. However, I’m looking at Wetherby’s Jumps card tonight for slightly easier pickings. Promanco looks a penalty kick in the first but you won’t get rich so RALLY is the first half of the double in the 6.10. Read More

LESS than two years ago REX IMPERATOR won the Stewards Cup off a mark of 104. Last summer, when rated 110, he ran in the King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot. Today he runs in a class 4 handicap at Thirsk off 85. He is another horse whose career will hopefully be revived by the golden touch of David O’Meara. Read More

MALEFICENT Queen did the business yesterday and ALLBARNONE looked all over the winner under Denis O’Regan before being mugged on the line at Cartmel at 3/1. Talk about hitting the crossbar. Today’s strongest fancy is the hat-trick seeking RETRO VALLEY in the last race at Leicester. He has to shoulder a penalty but the excellent Shane Gray claims 3lb off him. The manner of his victory at Redcar last week suggests his winning run may not be over. The other selection… Read More

DENIS O’Regan (left) is making the trip to Cartmel for just one ride today. ALLBARNONE runs in the 3.00 and he should go very close if handling the sharp track. He caught the eye last time out at Bangor and although a maiden he has indicated that he is definitely up to winning a race or two. He has shown improvement on better ground and hopefully conditions in Cumbria will dry out sufficiently for him to be competitive. The other selection… Read More

IT’S been another good week for this list and there’s a debrief at the bottom of this article on how our horses to follow have fared… But, first, this week’s list. Read More

Daily Double: May 24

CRIKEY! Yesterday’s Daily Double spawned winners at 15/2 (Seamour) and 5/1 (Miss Katie Mae). A couple of folk had a £10 double and won £500. I put them in a multiple with four other losers. Hey ho! Anyway the bar has been raised… so no pressure then, Today’s first nag is the bang-in-form BILLY CONGO at Fontwell. Read More

Daily Double: May 23

SEAMOUR is today’s first horse. He is already on our notebook list of horses to follow. He ran a nice race at York last week when forced wide and never got to the leaders. The longer trip in Haydock’s 2.00 should suit. He has already been heavily backed this morning. Read More

Daily Double: May 22

LET’S try to do better than yesterday. Saying that, Loaves and Fishes ran very well to be fourth at Goodwood, just behind a filly rated 21lb superior. She should gain some black type this season. Cloud Seven ran in snatches and failed to transfer his Polytrack form to turf. He should be noted back on the all weather. As for today, the first selection is ZANETTO at Goodwood (5.10)… Read More
