These are two of the most popular betting races of the year, certainly with the bookmakers! We have a bet in each for you at BIG PRICES in response to numerous requests. Of course these are HIGHLY COMPETITIVE races and the margins very tight



Has come back to form with back to back wins. Tudhope back aboard. Drawn in stall 10 and if gets the run of the race has a big chance. Best price is 14/1 and is advised each way.



Tudhope aboard for his stable of David O’Meara. It would be great to see him land a famous double, not least because we will have landed a huge priced double! Watchable has been in great form and won really well last time at The Curragh. Best price is 12/1 and advised each way.

The Ayr Gold Cup one of the big races of the season!

The Week Ahead


Carl Harris looks forward to his big week of Horse Racing and Greyhound Racing….

Often Blog posts and Racing Diaries look back at what has already happened! Plenty has been said about the past week, which was some week with Doncaster and the big Irish weekend.

Plenty of talking points after the weekend. Martin (Motor Mouth) has posted about the rides given to Australia and Leading Light. I think that is a great post, plenty of people just grunt that the jockey is rubbish, MM is saying that Joseph is actually a very good jockey, in the making, and perhaps he should learn his craft before riding against the very best on horses where millions are at stake! Great well balanced article in my view. The feedback has been very good.

Adrian Fall, X22 Golf Tipster, did it again landing a 25/1 winner. England’s Paul Casey celebrated his 13th European Tour title in the KLM Open on Sunday Advised at 25/1. Adrian has landed some huge wins including a 50-1 winner a couple of weeks ago! He knows his golf! I am no fan of golf, god it is the most boring sport, but I love winning and follow his  bets avidly!


Monday is quite a low key day. Brighton and Wolves is pretty uninspiring whilst Musselburgh is marginally better. Tuesday looks much better and this week builds up to two great meetings, THE AYR GOLD CUP, Western Meeting, which kicks off on Thursday and Newbury which kicks off on Friday. Saturday features the MILL REEF STAKES. Plenty of top 2 year olds entered there.

The Ayr Gold Cup is much better than it used to be. The draw is the key, high or low, no one ever knew but it is much fairer now. A lot of work has gone in to improving the track there, but let’s be honest, it had to, it was becoming a joke. The Scots love The Western Meeting, and the first day coincides with the YES NO VOTE, In or Out.

I do not do politics, but it strikes me that Scotland leaving the UK is the craziest thing I have ever heard. They have no plan for the future, what on earth would their currency be? It seems to be complete and utter madness to even consider it. But thankfully I do not have to decide and don’t have a vote. It will not affect me much either way to be honest. I think the world has bigger problems to worry about.

Surely if Muthmir turns up at Ayr he will take some stopping. He won the Portland at Doncaster, stumbling at the start and almost stopping half way before getting going again and winning by a long way. William Haggas’ charge is 6/1 now, he will be much shorter if he is declared but you can not oppose him, on his current mark, he will take some stopping! I have had a few quid at 6/1, hoping he turns up!


John Cooper and Motor Mouth have teamed up for the MMC BETS. Double MAX BETS! This will be a great service and they had a superb St Leger festival. They have jointly issued a challenge against yours truly, having beaten Hackett, landing that Brazilian Bet at 10/3, this is the final showdown, the BIG ONE!

Both John Cooper and Martin Motor Mouth will be at Sheffield with me on Tuesday to see Jack in the heats of the Steel City Cup. We will thrash out the details over a steak! I am looking forward to Tuesday night.


I have already posted by thoughts about Viking Jack in the Steel City Cup. I think Tuesday night is key. Only the first TWO go through to the semi-finals. If Jack starts poorly he could be out, but that is why competitions are the big money earners! This is a high quality contest with good dogs. It is the one I would dearly love to win. The Derby is the money earner, £275k to the winner, but The Steel City Cup is the one that means the most.

I grew up in Rotherham, Sheffield was my local track. The Steel City Cup has been a fabulous competition won by superb dogs. Last year Elaine Parker’s Pay Freeze Won readily…

Pay Freeze is a hell of a dog and he is back to defend his title. Elaine has another flying machine in Candlelight King who I think is the one to beat. High quality competition this year, so I hope we win but don’t expect to win! Big difference!!

If we get knocked out, we will look at Newcastle’s All England Cup! Henry runs tonight at Nottingham, so plenty of action to look forward to!
