Come Racing " Why Bother '' ?
by The Executioner on 01 Dec at 22:20
It wasn’t that long ago that a certain over the top former Ch4 betting personality screamed COME RACING PUNTERS HAVE NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD ; well that comment seems completely inappropriate to me these days. A day at the races can be a really enjoyable time for many of us ; not only can we follow the sport that we love but it’s a nice place to catch up with friends that we haven’t seen for a while ; have a drink possibly and with some luck may be back a winner or two. It all sounds great but from a financial point of view is it actually worth it ? A lot would depend on how close you live to the track as travelling costs can add up to a sizable part of the day’s..

by meoldmate on 28 Nov at 23:00
This Friday we see two more of the Miss Lucinda Russell horses to follow with the selected few from this stable. CLONDAW KNIGHT Five year old who made a good impression, when appearing at Kelso and winning a novice handicap chase by four lengths from Surprise Vendor. His jumping was perfect and really a likeable horse to follow. The first of two runners for today, runs at Doncaster and the the other runner from Musselburgh. 1.20 DONCASTER NOVICE HANDICAP CHASE DISTANCE THREE MILES GOING GOOD SEVEN RUNNERS . 1. THE MUMPER just had the two runs this season and looks to be improving each time, made a couple of errors at Taunton on first appearance over fences, if jumping improves, could be worthy of interest. 2. CLONDAW FLICKA stepping up in trip, could be the answer to a big run, as he was staying on..
