Haydock (Wednesday)

Today’s blogpost is dedicated to Liam Treadwell, who in 2009 rode Mon Mome to Grand National victory, and personally gave me the most euphoric high I have ever experienced on a racecourse after my several month “hunch” became an actually reality on that fateful Saturday afternoon.

Photo montages of Liam aboard Mon Mome adorn my wall and take pride of place in my home. It will always be a Grand National victory dear to my heart and I will never forget Liam’s part in it.

It deeply saddens me that Liam was unable to reach his own levels of euphoria ever again and I implore anybody that ever feels that things are getting too much for them, or are feeling overwhelmed, to not be afraid to reach out and to try and let people in. There are sympathetic listeners nearer to you than what you think and nobody will judge you.

Whatever you’re going through, call the Samaritans free any time, from any phone, on 116 123.

Royal Ascot 2020 (Saturday) 🇬🇧

SCARLET DRAGON winning the Duke Of Edinburgh Stakes (Handicap) at Ascot. Picture: Pat Healy Photography

Among all the daily shouting, the showboating, the bragging, the goading, the berating, the moaning, on Twitter yesterday – little old me snuck in unnoticed and managed to land myself a well deserved payday – if I do say so myself!

The Lir Jet and Fanny Logan were already a couple of my ante-post bets for this week (see my 888sport blog) to start off with, and I’m not sure what gave me the wherewithal to combine the pair of them with Wooded and Scarlet Dragon in an e/w L15 bet (probably this article I wrote actually for Betfinder actually: Royal Ascot Day 4 Tips) but I did, and fate and good fortune played their part too. In fact, the non-runner count intervened as well, because after Byron Bay & Koeman were ruled out as early NR’s in the last race, I was left with Scarlet Dragon only and my split decision was no more. So my morning 10p E/W L15  with early prices end up looking like this: The Lir Jet (6/1), Fanny Logan (9/1), Wooded (11/2 NR), Scarlet Dragon (40/1). And of course, the rest is history!

Today’s Royal Ascot fancies:

12.40 Ascot- Golden Apollo, Count D’orsay & Hyperfocus (e/w).

1.15 Ascot- Sacred (e/w).

1.50 Ascot- Lauded & Dark Lion (e/w).
