There was silence yesterday from the usual suspects who pop up from time to time and say “Your tips are sh*t!”. Alas, nobody can be consistently good every single day of the week given the sheer volume of racing that takes place, but there are still some pretty decent ante-posts judges out there who appear to get lost in the melee of the “here today, gone tomorrow” tipping charlatans you find on social media.
I know who the good ones are, you know who they are – just keep the faith and we will all be duly rewarded by biding our time.
Today’s Plumpton fancies:
12.30 Plump- Marley Firth (win).
1.05 Plump- Rather Be (win).

2.35 Plump- Leo Luna & Shanroe Santos (e/w).
3.10 Plump- Sir Hubert (win).
3.45 Plump- Not Never (win).
Plumpton back in the day.
I hope some of you followed me in yesterday with Raz De Maree who won his second Cork National at the age of 11.
Today’s Carlisle fancies:
1.10 Carl- Lyme Park (18.0) & Kisumu (21.0) e/w.

2.20 Carl- Derintoher Yank (1.45) win.
2.50 Carl- Onenightinvienna (1.86) win.
3.25 Carl- Superior Command (4.7) win.
4.00 Carl- Just Minded (14.0) & Law Green (14.0) e/w.
Oh shadupp your face!
TWW currently stands at -7.65 pts
There were gremlins in the works last night as this post ended up being stuck as a draft and not posting. This morning I discovered the poor little devil was stuck in my dashboard. Oh the joys of technology!
A second place for Raz De Maree (advised at 16/1) in the Midlands Grand National saved last weekend from being a total disaster points wise so that minus figure isn’t quite double figures yet. Next stop zero I hope.
If the front running Sharney Sike has recovered from last months Eider Chase exertions then there is no reason why the chestnut gelding cannot run another big race. Kelso is usually a pretty difficult course to peg back front runners and I have been impressed with Coltherd’s horse all season. If you’re really adventurous then definitely include Harry The Viking in your forecast permutation.
Later on in the afternoon the George Bewley trained Hunters Belt is worth an each-way interest. This consistent veteran literally does stay longer than the mother-in-law and two previous career wins at Kelso show his liking for this course. Don’t worry if you don’t see him involved in the race early because he finishes off his races strongly. Son Jonathon takes off a useful 5lb off his back.
0.5 pt e/w Sharney Sike 2.15 Kelso (10/1 Bet365).
0.5 pt e/w Hunters Belt 4.35 Kelso (14/1 888sport).
*prices correct as of 11.35 am Saturday.
With no NH racing on Monday I didn’t get the opportunity to blow my own trumpet about the blog results and winners on Sunday. Well, there’s no time like the present so here I go with some self indulgent smugness 😀 : Mulleady (R Walsh, 3-1 ), Zuzka (R Walsh, 7-2 2nd-fav), Raz De Maree (B J Cooper, 7-1 ) & Argocat (Andrew J McNamara, 4-1). It’s always nice to have a National winner and Raz De Maree winning the Munster National was a very nice opener to the season.
Today’s fancies are at Huntingdon:
2.20 Hunt- Miss Exhibitionist & Notarfbad (e/w).
2.40 Hunt- Brousse En Feux & Roc De Guye (e/w).
3.20 Hunt- Mungo Park (e/w).
3.50 Hunt- Vino Griego (e/w).
4.20 Hunt- Genstone Trial & Go Amwell (e/w).
4.50 Hunt- Standintheband & Billybackrow (e/w).
Keep hunting down those winners! 😉
