Saturday TV Guide

Good morning all,

It’s been a most enjoyable week at York with the bookmakers taking a battering for the last two days, and the stories I’m hearing this morning suggest one or two of them have had enough and are off to Chester instead! Easier to make a few quid there from the Saturday crowd than trying to battle it out at the Knavesmire – especially when the fancied horses are continually going in!

Anyway, today, as promised, here’s my Saturday TV Guide, hopefully with a few winners in there.

Rain Arriving

Good morning all,

The rain is arriving today and it’s unwelcome for all sorts of reasons.

The timing of it couldn’t be any worse. For most places it’s arriving late morning and will continue through racing, which makes having a bet now a nightmare. We’ve simply no idea how much will fall and what that will do to the courses, and you’re as well keeping your money in your pocket until you’ve watched a race or two and have a better idea of conditions.

But on a personal level, it rather scuppers my plans today…..Continue Reading

Knavesmire Pointers

Good morning all,

Although I’m off to Stratford later, it’s not much of a card (a couple worth a mention, more of that later) so instead I will put up a few pointers and stats that might help with today’s tricky York card.

Day 1 certainly went to the punters if the Tweets from on-course bookmakers this morning are anything to go by, with the majority of them already on recovery missions.

So without further ado, here’s some stattage to help you out today.

The Wonder Of Worcester

Good morning all.

York will take centre stage this week and it’s an absolute jamboree of top quality Flat racing. Many will tell you they prefer this week over Royal Ascot and it’s not difficult to see why – York has the class of Ascot but maybe without the bells and baubles that accompany it, and as such, the atmosphere tends to be more relaxed.

I was there a couple of years ago as part of the then newly-formed Racemakers scheme, whereby a group of us would give our time up to go and help novice racegoers understand the day better by helping them read the racecard, or tell them what to look for in the paddock, or even just take photos of them and their mates to post to social media! Anyway, it was a great success, and once we knocked off for the day, we were free to do as we liked.

As I had a badge that entitled me to paddock entry, I had a wander in to have a word with my old friend, the Arabian commentator and SIS voiceover man, Gary Capewell. He introduced me to a “tired and emotional” Chris Pimlott, who had been clearly enjoying the hospitality, and was a bit on the loud side. Little did we know that, right in front of us, Racing UK were live and doing a piece to camera, and I’ll not forget the filthy look Stuart Machin shot us as he turned around to admonish us for a long time….

Anyway, it’s Worcester I’m off to on the first of five days on the road. A very tricky card, but here’s my early thoughts.
