These Donors Are AMAZING Thank You

Catapult in the last (given at 10-1) pulled things out of the bag at Chelmsford. Tonight I am again looking for some decently priced bets on the AW but this time at Southwell. I have high hopes that Karl Burke might do very well with his runners tonight.


Requited and Señorita Grade are the best two horses in this race but the value lies with these two course specialists.

18:00 SEVEN EMIRATES 1pt e/w

Karl Burke had this Dark Angel colt entered in the Middle Park for a long time so clearly rates him.

18:30 BORSDANE WOOD 2pts win

In a Nursery Handicap for the first time tonight, Burke’s colt bolted up over C&D LTO and is taken to follow up.

19:00 BLOWING DIXIE 2pts win

Blowing Dixie is 2lb out of the handicap but if there was a rating for Southwell racing only he would be carrying another stone at least. I expect him to make it 3 from 3 at Southwell.

19:30 DOLLY DUPREE 1pt e/w LOOSE CHIPPINGS 1pt e/w

Dolly Dupree ran well behind Blowing Dixie here in August which is good course form. Loose Chippings isn’t particularly well weighted but has shown ability at Southwell and Furtado’s stable is in fine fettle.

20:00 EXPENSIVE DIRHAM 2pts win HOOROO 1pt e/w

Expensive Dirham has the best rating in this race and Dubai progeny have a strike rate of 34% here. Karl Burke’s Hooroo has Dubawi on his dam’s side and his stable do very well here.

20:30 MUQARRED 1pt e/w ELHAFEI 1pt e/w

Progeny of Speightstown have a phenomenal record here. Muqarred gave me a big win here last month but his half-brother Elhafei will present a threat this time.

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.
