  • The Jumps Season Service will return for 2024/25 in late October

Chill Out Weekend


Now that’s all over for another year it’s a case of recharging the batteries over the weekend which will consist of watching the cricket, golf (looking a three-cornered affair between Day, Stenson and Rose), rugby, football, Formula 1 and racing. Regards the T20 Cricket World Cup, Paul Smith has covered the big India-Pakistan game today, one of the biggest rivalries in world sport so that will be some atmosphere.

Last year I gave a review of the Cheltenham Festival in two sections (in the same copy) analysing my recommended bets and then looking back at all races for clues for the future, which went rather well highlighting a number of nice-priced winners at Aintree and beyond. I’ll work on that starting on Monday and upload it later in the week – look out for me announcing when it has been posted in the moving ticker.

We had a fightback on Friday but I can never recall backing so many horses each-way that placed but didn’t win. Nine over the last two days(!) including Whiteout (5th) who was advised with firms offering five places (most were) at 28/1. She was returned at 33/1 but most firms were also going Best Odds Guaranteed.

I’ll be covering the World Golf Match Play on Tuesday attempting to make it five winning tournaments on the spin and the Irish Grand National and Dubai World Cup night in Big Race Focus on Wednesday at 1.00 p.m. and then start looking closely at Aintree, for which I am also providing most of the features in the official racecard this year so I'll also drop those into this website when completed. Paul will continue to be providing daily coverage of the T20 World Cup.

Right, feet up.
