• 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.

Top 20 Trainers


Just AW on the UK mainland today, which is difficult for me :( . These are the trainers selections I would consider.

Newcastle (going forecast standard to slow with showers)

2.10 Glen Again, Flying High
2.20 Cityzen Serg (Mabre 6/1 mkt 10.00 won LTO not trainer stat)
3.10 Oo De Lally (Majestic Tejaan)


Warwick (going forecast Soft/Heavy)

12.40 Pasley (Frankinsence won LTO not trainer stat)
1.15 Sky Pirate, Amoola Gold
1.50 Next Destination, (Fiddleronthehoof 2nd LTO not trainer stat)
2.25 Make me A Believer, Midnight River
3.00 Notachance, Captain Chaos
3.35 Ardlethen, Imperial Alcazar
4.05 Gold Bullion, Ted's Friend


Rather slow Sunday with just the AW on the UK mainland. I have gone with the Mark Johnston runners, better than 35% seasonal strike rate and over 57% places. The Fahey yard has 6 runners out and a 20% seasonal strike-out making it difficult to sort out which to bet, in the 4.05 they have Unapologetic 40/1 market 10.45.

Southwell (going forecast St)

1.35 Ghost Rider (Driftwood 3rd LTO not trainer stat)
2.35 Notation (Mukha Magic 3rd LTO not trainer stat)
3.35 Requinto Dawn (Zylan won LTO not trainer stat)

These are not the usual suspects as there is a different set of trainers in Scotland. This is just a test to see if I can come anywhere near. The Ollie Murphy yard has a fairly good record overall.

Ayr (going forecast heavy - showers)

1.25 Dame De Compagnie
3.00 Sinndarella
3.35 Made For You

Ludlow (going forecast Hvy/S0

1.10 Heross De Seuil
2.40 Robin Gold, Memphis Belle
3.10 Lessankan
4.10 Balco Coastal


My top 10 seasonal trainers to date over the jumps and that represents 2% of those currently licensed, so can't be bad :) .

Doncaster (going forecast S - showers) market odds from 10.50.

1.32 Bumpy Johnson 10/3 (others Folks On The Hill 50/1, The Edgar Wallace 5/4)
2.37 Progressive 7/4 (others Volkova 14/1, Her Indoors 5/1)

Doncaster (going forecast S with some GS) market odds from 10.15. Some listed trainers runners to consider.

12.55 Corrie Lindo 14/1 won LTO not trainer stat (other Sunset West 13/8 2nd LTO not trainer stat)
1.30 Shiskin 1/5 (other Fast Buck 14/1)

4.25 Billams Legacy 16/5 (other Teescomponentslass 5/1 2nd LTO not trainer stat)


Not the mainly usual suspects as there is mainly a different set of trainers up north. Just for interest so I can 'watch on' on the TV and best I could identify after a quick check.

Musselburgh (going forecast S)
1.25 Fire Away
1.55 Wise Glory, Carlos Feux
2.55 Prince Kayf, Chapel Stile
3.25 Third Time Lucki, Bareback Jack
3.55 Big Difference
4.25 Bullion Boss, Get The Appeal


Something rather different as these are from the top ten of my current season Class B list trainers, but they are all within the top 3.5% of the BHA list, so not bad :prankster: . All the current Class A listed trainers from below the top 2% BHA are over at Taunton today, which is perhaps where we should be. The good thing about my Class B trainers is that they sometimes win at good odds in the absence of Class A trainers.

Wetherby (going forecast S with some Hvy) Market odds shown from around 10.50.

1.45 Slievegar 14/1, Here Comes McCoy 10/3 (actually there is a Class A trainer Kim Bailey with Balleticon 5/4)
2.15 Snougar 15/4
2.45 Herds Garden 12/1
3.20 Eceparti 15/8
3.55 Runasini River 11/4
5.00 Milans Edge 5/4


I fully support the contention that following trainers is potentially a profitable approach - there I have nailed my colours to the mast :cool: . Newbury looks the card to consider for trainer selections today as more of the successful yards have entries. My seasonal merit list has hardly changed in the past month, except that the Hobbs yard has sneaked in at the bottom at the expense of Colin Tizzard. Just putting up a few that I would consider.

Newbury (going forecast G with some GS)

1.50 Pistol Whipped (N Henderson rates 25 and listed 6th best past 14 days)
2.30 Style De Garde (N Henderson rates 24)
4.15 Silent Revolution (P Nicholls rates 30 and listed 1st past 14 days)


Nearly overlooked the seasonal merit trainers at Kelso, which is the principal meeting today and that won't do!

Kelso (going forecast GS) Brian Hughes is the top rider at the track and has a ride in every race just for interest.

1.30 Lucky One (P Nicholls rates 30 & 1st past 14 days), MY Drogo (DSkelton rates 29 & 7th past 14)
2.05 Flash Collonges (P Nicholls rates 30 and 1st), Torn And Frayed (N Twiston-Davies rates 25 & 5th past 14 days)
2.40 Cloth C ap (J O'Neill rates 27 & 0 past 14 days)
3.15 Christopher Wood (P Nicholls rates 30 & 1st), Favoir (D Skelton rates 29 & 7th)
3.50 Eclair D'Ainay (D Skelton rates 29 & 7th)


Selections from the top ten NH trainers merit list updated to 13 Mar.

Warwick (going forecast Hdl S with some GS, Chs GS with some S - rain) D Skelton top track trainer. Market odds from 10.15.

1.37 Finistere 25 (7/4)
2.07 Calico 26 (3/10)
3.12 Subway Surf 14 (7/1)
3.42 Good And Hardy 16 (11/1)
4.15 Ballymillsy 25 (15/8), Morning Spirit 24 (7/1)
5.22 Fame And Concrete 27 (9/5), Jet Plane 26 (11/1)


Selections from the top ten Flat trainers merit list updated to 13 Mar. Market odds from 10.50

1.53 Merry Secret 27 (6/4 mkt) (Galeophobia 19, Belle Rouge 18)
2.23 Eastern Star 14 (9/4)
2.55 Fly The Nest 24 (9/2)
3.28 Clashaniska 24 (10/3)
3.58 Prospect 18 (15/4)
4.33 Albert Camus 21 (11/8) (Fairmac 18)
5.08 Temur Khan 21 (4/1) (Fiscal Prudence 20)


Having the usual Monday struggle to find anything of interest. The best track to follow trainers on today looks like Southwell on paper, although even with a fair number of successful yards competing most of their runners have not shown much form to date. These are mine from the top ten seasonal merit list updated to 21 March.

Southwell (going forecast GS with some G)

2.33 Only The Bold 22, Cadzano 19
3.03 She's Gina 22, Une de La Seniere 19
3.33 Milanstorm 23, (Another Frontier 15 -2nd string?)

Comment: Nothing was identified fro m Kelso and just one from Plumpton and that was Nye Bevan 18 N Twiston-Davies being contested by the top track trainer GL Moore with Darkest Day.


Best track for top class trainers with runners today is Taunton on paper, and only about five of them in all with P Nicholls the top track trainer. Just sticking to the top two in forecast restricted contests.

Taunton (going forecast G)

2.12 Market expected 09.15 no's 2, 3, 10
Defining Battle 22, Mon Frere 20

2.42 Market expected no's 1, 3 4
Time To Tinker 30


Those starred* are from the current top 20 seasonal trainers merit list updated to 2 March, others are runners with recent good form.

Windsor (going forecast GS rain) Suggested staking J Ryder plan down the card stop-whwn-in-profit

1.21 Seraphinite
1.56 Eloquent Arthur*
2.31 Capote's Dream
3.06 Fantasy Believer*
3.41 Eminent Hipster* (danger Sevenal*)
4.16 Imperial Sun*
4.51 Curtiz
5.21 King Victor
