These “Nationals” don’t half come around quickly and today it’s the turn of the traditional harvest time version at Listowel Races.

There’s an eighteen strong field today and it’s no less of a conundrum than in previous years. If you’d like a few extra pointers then here’s an excellent article by Ben Aitken of “Narrowing The Field”.

Southwell Soirée

Lots of moaning and groaning on social media this morning about Gok Wan being on the Channel 4’s  forthcoming Royal Ascot coverage. At least we won’t have to endure that annoying twerp Sherwood any more. Here he is pictured in his summer job smuggling budgies across the Mediterranean.

Uttoxeter Sunday

Where's Chutney Dave?

Where’s Chutney Dave?

I feel a little lost today writing a blog post that isn’t all about Listowel but all good things must come to an end and I smell a whiff of domestic NH action in the air. It even smells better than Bisto!

Listowel on Saturday rounded the week off very nicely for the blog with winners from The Crafty Butcher (B J Geraghty, 6/1) & Angel Chorus (Miss S O’Brien, 4/1) and places from Benash (Andrew J McNamara, 16/1) & Chicago (Andrew J McNamara, 7/2).

Listowel Saturday

listowelWell we’ve come a long way together this week on the blog as today is the seventh and last day of the Listowel Harvest Festival 2013. We’ve had some highs and some lows and if I had the technology to do so I’d be doing one of those clever musical montages now but instead you’ll have to put up with a nice collage instead…

Listowel Friday

listowelIt’s the penultimate day of the Festival and boy oh boy does it feel like a long week. The flat races have been very difficult to fathom I must say with the NH races somewhat easier.

Late Rosebud (P J Smullen, 9/4) got proceedings off to a flyer yesterday with places later in the day from Usuel Smurfer (D E Mullins, 6/1) & Pires (P Townend, 8/1).

I’m not sure whether any of you saw Question Time from Rochdale last evening but here’s a little screenshot of me asking the last question of the evening to the panel.
