• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting

    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

Thoughts and selections

Another poor selection, Kitty Galore did lead but weakened very quickly after she was headed and pulled up. More than a week since any returns on my bets, I will continue to try for now but with a reduced stake.

2:55 Pontefract - Here And Now, 0.6 pt win @ 7/4

Stag Horn was easy winner of this race last year, but he hasn’t been in same kind of form this season and as he has to carry the maximum penalty of 8 lbs, I am opposing with him what looks the obvious alternative in Here And Now.

Selection is favoured by race conditions as he is getting 8 lbs from a horse that is rated only 5 lbs higher than him. He has had his problems too, having raced just 4 times in last 3 years but ran ok after latest absence of a year last time at Salisbury by finishing 3rd of 4, the first two were rated 107 & 114 so he couldn’t really have been expected to do any more.

Other 3 in the race are rated 85, 75 & 65, so have a lot of work to do at these weights though Notation could run well, it does mainly concern the top two in betting.
