      Djakadam is by far the best handicapped horse in the race.

      Fingal Bay is a horse I've always really liked and Hobbs' horses are in outstanding form.

      Newbury is looking really tough work and that is one thing that could work in Smad Place's favour as it turns into a real slog but I'll stick to the two above for my small stakes interest in a very tough race.

      Djakadam is entered into the Gold Cup from a stable with obvious knowledge so take that as an indicator of where they think his talent could take him (winning GC takes rating of 160+ and he's handicapped at 142 at the moment)

      Duly noted mate and Djakadam is a fly in the ointment but I just don't fancy him in this at all. My personal profile of a horse to win this is from 4: Smad Place, Many Clouds, Annacotta and what a warrior (gone for the win on first 2 and e/w on the latter 2).

      Won a fortune on last Cheltenham so, I go out with my tips. Hope its another great weekend.

      Soll or Unioniste? 20/1 or 25/1?

      Rocky Creek pushing for this race with no credible answer apart from Balthazar. But he is too old for this kind of energetic race.

      Time for underdogs right?? And there is good few. From 16-1 upto 26-1. If you are looking for a winner its going to be around this mark.

      I say: Soll or Unioniste. Get it each way

      Had £50 e/w on Many Clouds (along with many others) but my main bet was The Druids Nephew, convinced that was going to win, gutted.

      Probably cost me £10k. Had Arctic Fire for £4.5k and Call the Cops for £6k earlier in the week so felt I was due one. Had a good Cheltenham but Annie Power cost me for £58k, absolutely gutted.

      The strange part about it was that both Annie Power and Arctic Fire my Mum arrived at our house just before each race, both trained by Mullins and ridden by Walsh, of course I'm searching for connections. I never react angrily about losers but Annie Power was my worst reaction ever.

      It was coupled up with big ante-post bets including 8/1 Douvan, 6/1 Un De Sceaux (placed after it fell), 4/1 Faugheen, Peace and Co 9/2, had also More of That which was a none runner. Even more annoying was horses that let me down on big accas at Cheltenham came out and confirmed my impression of them at Aintree. Don Cossack and Nichols Canyon, which I was convinced was ridden incorrectly at Cheltenham and then seeing it win easily today really just confirmed that. Interesting to see Windsor Park revert to a crappy flat race instead today too, I mean was 2/5 but was basically buying money that.

      We are off to Chester races later, hope to back a couple of winners. Typically wet weather forecast, still probably get wet inside, by downing a few pints during the day !

      Out of interest would many people here have much interest in Royal Ascot this week?

      Love the racing mate as you know, really enjoyed day 1 just over £1000 up so far but a few of my main fancies got stuffed, got away with it really. Thought Able Friend in the first and Round Two in the Coventry with Gleneagles as the nap of the day.

      Luckily did a 2x2x1 bet

      Miners Lamp 7/4
      Mighty Missile 6/4

      Buratino 8/1
      Round Two 9/4

      Gleneagles 4/7

      4x £50 trebles, cost £200 won £1944 and change.

      Also got a nice touch on a Willie Mullins horse I've had my fingers stung a few times on already this year in the Ascot Stakes. Had £225 win Clondaw Warrior. Strangely didn't fancy Washington D.C at all, ended up with 3rd 4th and 5th in that race, thought after Round Two's run and looking at the times maybe it was weaker than I'd first thought. Listening to Ryan Moore afterwards though even he was surprised just how bad Round Two was, so will wait for that to get softer going and might give it another chance.

      In the Kings Stand I went for Sole Power, just didn't have the finishing kick of old, think it needed more cover and a few more around it to bring out the best put perhaps time is catching up with him now.

      Tomorrow seems a decent day.

      I've been burned by Ivawood a few times already but tomorrow is surely his best chance of winning, 7f seems perfect and I'd have to side with him. In the Queen Mary the jockey bookies by Wesley Ward looks like he's out to bag that, a friend has tipped me Besharah but I'll be siding with the ward pair, probably split stakes, Bruised Orange put up a time even quicker than his horse in the Coventry over 4.5f so I'd expect that to go off like a scolded cat and perhaps this one might stay out the trip.

      Duke of Cambridge I think Integral is too short but still would fancy her, she's not got too much in hand on a strict line of form through Night of Thunder and both Euro Charline and Cladocera could give her something to think about but I think Ascot on fast ground is ideal for her so I'd be sticking her in my accas tomorrow.

      Prince of Wales, absolutely love Free Eagle and will be hammering that horse, love his Forgotten Rules too in the gold cup later in the week if it runs (ground worries) never forget saying that was the best bumper horse I'd ever seen to a friend haha.

      Royal Hunt Cup, probably a 25/1 shot will win but my 3 against the field are GM Hopkins/Spark Plug and Ayaar, all have a very similar line of form and I was really impressed with Spark Plug last time. Probably would just side with that one if a gun was put to my head but a very trappy race with stakes kept minimal.

      The Sandringham, well the favourite Always Smile could be anything but going up 11lb for it's last run (next 2 have won since) seems a big ask to go into a massive handicap like this. At 5/2 that's a shocking price, so while I think it's the best chance at 5/2 I might just watch this one and go with Jellicle Ball E/W at 11/1. I thought it ran a cracking race first time out. In the Guineas it got no kind of run, slowly away and I can forgive that run. Last time out was too keen and at 11/1 again with Moore on top could be value but it's speculative rather than confident.

       2.30 - Hathal E/W

      Outstanding fella, don't think I've ever picked a horse at 50/1, 33's I remember Red Marauder but I think that's the highest I've had.


      Like this one too and think if I was to have an e/w in the race it would be that, although I'm surprised to see Bruised Orange drift so alarmingly. I can see a weight of money heading for Acapulco now though. Expecting it to go off near 5/2

      Hope you lads had the 4/1 available as Free Eagle wins, absolutely love that horse!

      Pattern of the day

      Ivawood short price burned fingers
      Acapulco 6/1 wins
      Integral short price burned fingers
      Free Eagle 4/1 wins

      Those bloody short price favourites hurting but well up on the day again now, with a few free bets (placed out of nice winnings) to come.

      11/1 winner of the royal hunt cup too lads, hope you followed the tips, cracking day for me!

      Had the forecast too! Thought I didn't but then realised threw temptress in at the end too but gutted it only paid £70 (had £20 on it so got £1400 off it). Exacta paid £100+ cost me £600 not being able to place it online with the bookies I use.

      Oh well can't moan, over £4000 up on the day! Get in!!!

      Hahaha mate would have won £4500 more if Always Smile won the last, should have followed my own advice and left it. Had it in a Treble with Free Eagle and Acapulco, bloody thing lost by a nose after leading most of the last half mile. So strange to have won £5000 on the day (saved myself on last race with e/w on Osaila) and to be slightly gutted.

      Just said to the Mrs I need to be happy about it and forget about the loser but losing £3500 on the nod hurts.

      Cheers though it's wrong to complain, I know it is and I will feel happy about it, just typical me.

      After an outstanding day for me yesterday I thought I'd share my tips with you for today:

      In the Norfolk Stakes there's basically 2 horses being backed against the rest of the field. King of Rooks has been odds on since it's latest win and is now drifting quite alarmingly and it's stablemate Log Out Island (who has won at the course and distance putting up a time that would have won all races at this distance so far) is getting backed right in. I tend to think that Log Out Island might actually be the one even though I was taken with King of Rooks, actually splitting the pair is proving difficult for me but I'd just go with King of Rooks.

      Tercentenary Stakes looks like an outstanding opportunity for Time Test, think Bocca Baciata is the main danger but I think Time test will win this and 9/4 is a price I'm happy to back it at.

      Ribblesdale is a tough one for me as I'm going to side with Pleascach as Bolger claims it's the best 1m4f horse he's ever trained but I do like Pamona. Pamona was my tip for the Oaks at 20/1 before it was a non-runner and it faces a much easier task here, although the 6/1 suggests that. So I'll be backing Pleascach for the win and probably a saver on Pamona.

      Gold Cup: Forgotten Rules without a doubt, think the 3/1 available is great value. Mentioned yesterday I absolutely love this horse and honestly the only negative I can see is the ground, it's an exceptional horse and I'll be hammering it.

      Britannia: Wont play big in this but a couple do stand out. War Envoy has been behind great horses and while it's form figures look terrible in this company it could make the frame at least. 14/1 looks value to me. The other one is Portage, clearly not trying last time and just looks laid out for this.

      The KGV I'd have to side with Dissolution. If Time Test wins well the price on this will disappear fast, currently you can get 4/1 and that looks big, expect this to go off nearer the 2/1 mark myself. Ryan Moore on top is a huge plus, think he is so much better than James Doyle who cost me for that extra £4500 yesterday.

      So Tips:

      King of Rooks
      Time Test
      Pleascach
      Forgotten Rules
      War Envoy
      Dissolution

      Almost all the favourites :lmao: best of luck if you choose to play.

      Typical again lads, about level on the day for me with just the last race to go:

      King of Rooks 3rd
      Log Out Island 2nd

      Time Test won

      Pleascach 2nd

      Forgotten Rules (didn't stay) 3rd

      War Envoy won 14/1

      Any of Pleascach/King of Rooks/Log Out Island or Forgotten Rules had won I'd be in for a good win but still War Envoy got me out of a hole then.

      Tips for Friday:

      Albany Stakes: One of the toughest races at the entire meeting so stakes kept to a minimum again, Welsley Ward with a couple in it and he's not to be taken lightly in this field. The pundits seem to suggest that Back at the Ranch has the better pedigree for staying but I''ll be siding with his other horse Laxfield Road. Anything that can win by 11l at 4.5f on fast ground clearly has an incredible engine and Frankie has teamed up with Ward before for plenty of success so I''d have that of his pair. If it was softer I'd give Spanish Romance a huge chance, even still I  wont be ignoring it and 10/1 looks a good price. One at 33/1 that just keeps nagging at me too is Elegant Supermodel, I'll play that one each way too, put up a great time in France and I  don't think they're coming over just for a sight seeing trip.

      King Edward: Stravagante was awesome last time, moving straight from handicap to group company tells you all you need to know about this Stoute horse, they clearly think it's going places but this is no penalty kick. Ol' Man River has been shocking this year but O'Brien's horses were running badly at the start of the year and don't be surprised if that one comes home in front. I''ll be splitting stakes at not very good odds here.

      Commenwealth Cup: What a race this looks to be. Personally I  can't see the winner coming outside of Hootenanny/Limato/Tiggy Wiggy, so cue some 20/1 no mark chinning me on the line to spoil the party. I''ll be playing the forecast big on those 3 as I  think they have quite a bit in hand on the others. My preference has shifted from Limato to Hootenanny based on Limato's last run, but I  wouldn't be surprised if it won as I 've backed it ante-post quite a few times. Hootenanny is a horse I  love, actually had it at 25/1 for our guineas but had to pull out at the last minute. Won big on it a few times already and I''ll be siding with it again. Tiggy Wiggy has gone out to an incredible horse at 8/1, I  can't understand why it's that big in this race as it could easily win it and surely has an exceptional place chance.

      Coronation Stakes: Thought Found was a wonder horse last year but somehow it's managed to get beaten twice this year, first time out on ground that was horribly against it and in the I rish guineas by Pleascach who ran well here over 1m4f yesterday. Even in the I rish guineas it looked to be given a bad ride and while I  don't think the round course will necessarily suit her I  can't back against the horse. 11/8 looks a shocking price and it definitely is factoring in the Moore magic of the week but I  wont let that put me off. She's already beaten Ervedya in France and Lucida looks a horse who just lacks pace late in a race.

      Duke of Edinburgh: Massively tough race and I 'd advise small stakes played but the race I 'd concentrate on coming into this is the Newmarket race between Watersmeet and Dashing Star, cracking time put up by that pair and at 10/1 for each I 'd probably put an e/w on them both. Mark Johnston seems to keep horses improving once they get on a roll and I  wouldn't be put off by the 6lb rise and he would be my main tip.

      Queen's Vase: You only have to look at Aloft going from Racing post 2nd (1m race and all 3 starts as a 2 y/o at a mile) and being stepped up a full mile to know that this horse is clearly showing incredible performances at home to throw it straight in here. 109 rated as a 2 y/o at a mile and this being it's starting point has nap written all over it to me and I 'll be playing big on this one and I  think if you can get any of the 2/1 available you should do as I  expect this one to start odds-on.

      Tips

      2:30
      Laxfield Road 6/1 win
      Spanish Romance 10/1 e/w
      Elegant Supermodel 33/1 e/w

      3:05
      Stravagante 5/2 Split Stakes
      Ol' Man River 7/2 Split Stakes

      3:40
      Hootenanny 9/2 Win Forecast Tricast
      Limato 5/1 Win Forecast Tricast
      Tiggy Wiggy 8/1 E/W Forecast Tricast

      4:20
      Found 11/8 win

      5:00
      Watersmeet 10/1 E/W
      Dashing Star 10/1 E/W

      5:35
      Aloft 2/1 Win

      I  always do multiple bets 2x2x2 etc which I  generally do depending on how I''m getting on through the day so wont bore you with them but good luck if you do have a go!

      After observing the betting I must admit I'm worried about Aloft and will be leaving it out of the remainder of my bets today. 3/1 is a big drift and I'd advise caution now.

      Shocking day for me:

      Laxfield Road: Clearly went to quickly and that was my worry.
      Spanish Romance: 6th if it had been softer I think it would have got really close, was backed from 10's to 5's but not good enough.
      Elegant Supermodel: 3rd 33/1 decent e/w return of 8/1 roughly.

      Stravagante: Pulled up injured, should have known then how the day would turn out.
      Ol' Man River: Ran a much better race than of late, but still 4th not good enough.

      Limato: 2nd Ran well on the wrong side.
      Hootenanny: Not a clue, backed as if it should win and ran like it should never have come over.
      Tiggy Wiggy: I give up on this horse now, clearly going backwards and didn't look in love with the game as it hung it's head.

      Found: Just denied but think Ervedya had a bit extra too, so frustrating Found 2nd 2nd 2nd.

      Dashing Star: Pulled all week and destroyed it's chance.
      Watersmeet: Came there going well enough, just didn't finish the race off.

      After 2 good days an absolute stinker.

      Think I'm just going to back one horse tomorrow Brazen Beau in the Diamond Jubilee, 3/1 with Hills, Austrailia horse who have a great record in this.

      HAHAHA f**king typical the nap wins at 5/2 after the betting putting me off....

      Only bet of the day 2nd to Dettori again, little b***ard has cost me over £6k now. Most pundits agree that if they met again they would back Brazen Beau, I'm less convinced though, it was an excellent turn of foot shown by the Wesley Ward horse and I'm usually all over his horses at Royal Ascot but this one being 5 and not winning in it's last few did look like it might struggle. 14/1 suggested as much too, gutted.

      Oh well still up on the meeting and I guess onwards to Golden Horn in the Eclipse! Can't believe Mahsoob is as low as 10/1 for that race, sure it's done well to win handicaps but that's theft from bookies. I think Golden Horn and Free Eagle stand out a mile and I'll wait until I know the ground before more than likely hammering Golden Horn again.

      Sorry mate, had awful trouble with my laptop the last few weeks, so haven't been online at all. Really enjoyed reading your posts on Ascot though, you're some man to punt! I had a terrible Ascot, got burned left, right and center! Best of the week for me was Curvy, that filly has been printing money for me this year, and she'll win a Group 1 yet. She is as tough as nails, not unlike her brother, but I think she does exactly what she needs to and no more.

      Spot on about Brazen Beau too mate, nowhere in the July Cup today.

       Hi Guys,not been on here for some time now,but would like to share a little grand national story with you'ze.For the three days I was working on an interview camera dedicated to the "top"bookies.One of which was Betfred.Mark Pearson (head of media)He  tells me on the Friday that he was giving me a "free bet on the Nashional"On the day he tells me my free bet is to be £50 quid.
      Easy one for me as I fancy Many Clouds.So £25 each way was my bet.Later on producing my betting slip,I'm amazed to read the price 40/1.The outcome is "obvious and I picked up £1250.
      That night my family (inAintree) along with my wife (who travelled up from Surrey) had a birthday party for me.Next day I took them all out for lunch before setting off for home.What a week that was!!  :)
