“A difference of opinion is what makes horse racing and missionaries."

A glance through the news and a no-brainer punt

I glance through today’s papers and I find myself in despair at being the only sane person on the planet. Does that make me a bad person, or just mad?

  • Naomi Osaka won’t win. A broader debate will follow. Somebody will use the words “white”, “middle-aged”, and “male” out of context and irrelevantly. Prince Harry will join in or maybe Megan or maybe both – it will depend on their sponsorship agreements.
  • China’s new 3-child policy gives you the rough date for the commencement of their global land-grab, WWIII starts on June 1st 2040 – what else can you do with 40bn conscripts!
  • Boris Johnson’s nuptials has lost an estimated 2m votes from a broad church of fundamentalist Catholics, wedding planners, Dominic Cummings supporters who regard Carrie as the spawn of Satan, and Jacinta-Marigold’s Mum and Dad who have cancelled her wedding four times now and have had to sell the Llamas that were going to pull her carriage up the High Street.
  • There is as much chance of the panjandrums of the Health Industry giving up power on June 21st as I have of swimming the Atlantic next Thursday. The easiest bet of the year. It will be delayed until at least July 28th. This is because the Indian variant has got a grip. Why? Because HMG didn’t. Why? Because the powers that be will not confront the elephants in the room. That elephant was actually seen in Soho this week when a Vax-Bus was advertised as offering free vaccines to anyone – with no ID, no names, no nothing – and 20,000 people turned up in Chinatown.

  • There will be no Vaccine Passports organised by The Government. This goes hand in hand with cancelling/delaying June 21st, because the question remains, what was the point of the jabs, if I have still lost the freedoms I had in October 2019? However – and inevitably- I still believe that it will be the Insurance companies who drive the global introduction of The VaxPas.
  • Matt Hancock will be ennobled in the next six months. Or “Gone” as some people call it.
  • That smug and very irritating doctor who presented Embarrassing Bodies, Christian Jessen, has discovered that picking a fight with a Northern Irish Protestant matriarch, is absolutely no different than taking the pin from a grenade and dropping the explosive down your trousers.  His stupidity alone should see him examined by a competency board, as he is patently not a man of sound judgement.

Meanwhile, this little stat might help restore sanity …

Backing 2yos at Windsor in non-handicaps, who have had at least one run and who are clear favourite or joint-favourite with odds between Evens and 4/1 and who aren’t wearing head-gear, show an ROI on SP of 13%. Since 2003 there have only been 4 years when this was not profitable. Overall, we are up 43.9 points from 129 bets.

I shall be backing therefore

GENERAL PANIC in the 2:10 and ROBBIE ROGER in the 2:45.

I also fancy NELSON GAY in the 3:25 at Leicester who I spotted a couple of races ago and was surprised to see back out just seven days after his smart win in late April. A good month off and I think he has a chance here. Finally, in The Zetland Gold Cup at Redcar (4:40), I’m looking no further than the favourite MAKRAM

Annual domain registrations, site hosting, software licences, form guides, research costs and a host of other minor and but not inconsequential outgoings are the burden for all website owners.

Even the smallest donation can make the difference between the Off and On switch.

It’s not just that once in a while we actually prove accurate, and you possibly make a bit of pocket money, but occasionally, we might perhaps suggest a view that could possibly change someone’s mind. For the better.

That’s a lot of Maybes and Possiblies, but sometimes we have to try and change a plan or encourage them to move a mountain, and if that means we make you smile, or shout with anger, or shake with laughter, then Huzzah!

That’s your donation that did that. Thank You.
