The Site for Winners
Prize money, going descriptions and the Geoffrey Freer winner at Newbury!
The guys get stuck into plenty of racing topics this weekend talking going descriptions, the lousy prize money on offer these days and much more.
Ever wondered about the stats for 3-y-o’s in all aged handicaps?
Ron is convinced he has the Geoffrey Freer winner, Sean is baffled by Godolphin sending Barney Roy to Germany for a 12 furlong race and can Frankie make it worth a quarantine, by riding in France?
Sceptical, ITV, The Clover Club and a winner in Ireland on Sunday!
Very sad to lose Sceptical during the week but brilliant to see the small owners can still find one!
ITV renewed their contract with racing, The Clover Club started with two winners in Ireland last week….and we haven’t even started yet!
Big Brother is looking to make sure your competent enough, and have the resources, to gamble….like to see them police that one….and we discuss several races taking place in England and Ireland this weekend, and both Ron and Sean have an Irish certainty!
What can go wrong!?
The Smashy and Nicey of horse racing discuss events good, and bad, in our sport!
The Derby loses it’s sponsor but Ron explains why he thinks that has happened.
Have you been backing plenty of losers at Goodwood this week? Sean and Ron run through several names that should have won and a suggestion is made that you wait for Leopardstown, 13th August….revenge is on the cards!
The racing is weak this weekend and they pull no punches is giving it down the banks…but have they named a winner right at the very end?
The Irish Oaks, crowds returning to racing and Barry Geraghty are this weeks main Podcast topics
After last weekends blinding success with winners coming out of their ears, Sean and Ron delve into the Irish Oaks, the Railway Stakes, the Hackwood Stakes, the Sliver Cup and a superb race at York on Sunday, the Summer Fillies.
They also look into the fact crowds will now be returning to racecourses, the “who replaces Geraghty” debate and Sean tells of his involvement with the HBF, the Horse Bettors Forum.
Plenty to work with this weekend, even if the racing in the main is shabby!
Was The Derby a “dog” of a race? Is Love the Arc winner in waiting and, who lets the dogs out!?
A lively debate concerning the “dog of a race” that is now the Derby, both Ron and Sean are in awe of Love….will she now win the Arc?
The conversation then goes onto the Superlative Stakes, a race farmed in the past by the Legendary Sir Henry Cecil, and a good dose of reasoning as to what wins it this year.
Will the going scupper the chances of Golden Horde in the July Cup, or will Kevin Ryan finally get one of his home first?
The Summer Mile at Ascot looks a good opportunity for Mohaather to prove how unlucky he was at Royal Ascot….or does it?
Ron asks whether or not Jim Crowley thinks so, looking at one of Jim’s Newmarket rides as his, “before we go….” selection.
It is 39 minutes of your life you will never get back but it’s interesting horse racing debate and discussion, and you are invited to take part by sending your questions for next week Podcast.
Ron Good afternoon, sir. How the hell are you
Sean Not so bad, yourself? I see bits of blue sky out the window, along with bits of cloud. How about you?
Ron I’ve got exactly the same. I don’t believe it. It’s been atrocious this week hasn’t it.
Sean Certainly being changing the going and causing a few issues here and there for us all. But, um, that’s UK for you.
Ron Well, what I’ve done today is I’ve basically said don’t have a bet, you know, I’ve not, I’ve not sent anything out. It seems to be the most sensible thing to do. I had an email from one of the members in response to the newsletter and he said, best decision I’ve made in July.
Sean You can’t, if you’re not confident with it and the figures aren’t working because the goings changing, then it’s, then it’s time to pull stumps and wait till they are, and then make hay when the sun shines, perhaps
Ron That’s it entirely. I mean, the main ingredient in what I do is the ground. And my motto, for want of a better description, is if you give me the ground, I’ll give you the winners, take the ground away, I’m as stumped as everybody else.
Sean Good catch phrase though, like it
Ron It’s not a bad one, is it
Sean It’ll do. Yeah, you’re right. If the rain softening the ground, and then at the moment we’ve got sunshine and wind out there and the temperatures are quite warm. I’m talking down South where I am. I don’t know what the ground is going to be tomorrow, down here at all. If the, if the rain stays away and the wind stays up and the temperature is high, it’ll dry out pretty quickly. But exactly. So it’s like a night again. And then suddenly, you know, what’s it going to be tomorrow? Good to, from good to soft soft, who knows
Ron Looking at tomorrow’s racing now. Well, not now, but now. Um, and I’m seeing soft ground and then I’m looking at the weather forecast and I’m looking at the temperatures and I’m saying, well, Do do you work on a race on the basis that it’s going to be soft? You can’t. Can you,
Sean And do you believe what they tell you anyway? That’s sadly that’s true.
Ron That’s another discussion for another day
Sean No, that’s one for next week’s list, is it okay? I think so. What we talking about this week, boss.
Ron Well, can we talk about the Derby?
Sean Well, I know you’ll want to. I suspect you to start yet where are we going to disagree for the fun of it, but go on off you go. You can go first.
Ron As far as I’m concerned now, the Derby is absolutely null. And in as much as well, I mentioned last week, how, how hard it is now to try and find the winner of that race. And I gave an example of the prices of the most recent winners. And you look at the price of the first three home of last Saturday’s race. And you say, I wasn’t wrong now.
Sean That’s true.
Ron You know, if
Two Derby’s, a pair of Oaks and, an Eclipse plus, two “Before we go….” selections to get to work with!
Ron and Sean dissect the English and French Derby and Oaks, try to find a way for Enable to get beaten in the Eclipse, chat about the Leicester farce earlier in the week plus, offer up well researched selections for Saturday and Monday, in their “before we go….” section.
It’s the best 30 minutes of racing chat around….well, we would say that, wouldn’t we!
