BEFORE we get started with the tips for today I feel it fitting we reflect on the racing yesterday and the three horses who lost their lives competing in the sport we love.

It was a sad day for racing, a tragic day. Punters will still bet and the sport will continue. We all know the risks and the stresses horses are put under to perform.

We all have our favourite horses, current and of all time. We love the thrill, the buzz of a winner coming in.

I’ll always feel the roar of the Cheltenham crowd, Frankel in all his full glory taking apart allcomers, Becher’s Brook, Canal Turn ,The Chair on the national course.

It’s a rush of adrenalin to see your horse come flying through to take the win, it’s a buzz we as punters love.

For just one minute look back to yesterday and don’t forget the talent that was:


Age: 6 (Foaled March 11, 2007)
Sex: Brown Gelding
Breeding: Milan – Darbela (Doyoun)
Trainer: N J Henderson
Owner: Mr John P McManus

Desert Vision

Age: 9 (Foaled April 7, 2004)
Sex: Bay Gelding
Breeding: Alhaarth – Fragrant Oasis (Rahy)
Trainer: M W Easterby
Owner: A Black, R Edmonds, J Holdroyd, J Quickfa


Age: 9 (Foaled May 5, 2004)
Sex: Bay Gelding
Breeding: Mujahid – Island Mead (Pharly)
Trainer: A W Carroll
Owner: Six Pack

They are gone but won’t be forgotten.

Cheltenham is just round the corner and there is plenty to look forward to and I’m starting to think about the runners and riders already. Enjoy fantastic Ladies Day coverage plus news, tips and results from William Hill where there’s a brief run down of whats on at the Festival.

And now to today’s racing – and hopefully no repeat of yesterday’s sad sights.

  2. benny 5 years ago

    seebass can go well today but dont know if 2miles is far enough

  3. John Henderson 5 years ago

    Horse i always bet loves Southwell should go close Mazovian ew 3.40.

    • Milesey 5 years ago

      It’s great to see southwell back today, alot of southwell lovers have been doing terrible elsewhere, so bet they are glad to see racing back here !


  4. Ryan 5 years ago

    Milesey, with Sedgefield off, what would your lucky 15 look like today? Cheers

  5. Milesey 5 years ago

    2.40 STAND GUARD
    Is going to be my lump today.


    1.25 SEABASS 9-2

    2.25 GREY MONK 7-4

    Market Rasen

    2.00 POPULATION 2-1

    2.30 AVOCA PROMISE 15/8

    Lucky 15


  6. rob erskine 5 years ago

    Milesey what made you pick seabass over rock critic?

    • Milesey 5 years ago

      SEABASS, not been out since last years national when finishing 3rd, last 7 runs, Ruby has won 4 times on board, Katy Walsh 2 times, and she rode it to 3rd place in the national. It’s a ride to see how it will go go back from the lay off, with the expectation of this horse being in the national this year. I think it will go well, trip maybe alittle too short, but the heavy ground, this horse loves it ! so the 2m may feel more like a 2m6f today.


  7. rob erskine 5 years ago

    Undecided now! Rock critic has the fitness

    • Milesey 5 years ago

      Leave it out then 😉

      You don’t know how they have been working SEABASS at home ;), this run and maybe another and then the national !

      I expect MAKE YOUR MARK to finish in front of Rock Critic, but we’ll see :)


  8. Peter Brown 5 years ago

    Milesey who do U fancy in the 3.40?

  9. Milesey 5 years ago

    Burnhope / waking warrior , i like the look of them both for the 3.40, but it’s one of them races that’s very hard looking at it from a betting angle.


  10. Arnie 5 years ago

    I had Seabass EW anyway.

    Anyone knows who will get 2nd or 3rd to Bordoni in the 1.30pm at Mrkt. I think an EW is worth more.

  11. Peter Brown 5 years ago

    I fancied bandstand and waking warrior but can’t choose lol

    • Milesey 5 years ago

      15:40 Southwell (GB)
      1st Aubrietia
      2nd Burnhope
      3rd Dickie Le Davoir

  12. Arnie 5 years ago

    Am going with Hayley turner rides today, Aubrieta in the 3.40 and Ace of Spies in the 2.10, EW double.

    But something tells me Ishiamiracle will prove me wrong in the 2.10. Luke is back on board

    • Milesey 5 years ago

      I expect the track to be very very slow, so horses like BOY THE BELL, PIPERS PIPING if given the right ride should be well in with a chance in the 2.10


  13. rob erskine 5 years ago

    Took a punt on seabass for interest

    • Milesey 5 years ago

      HAHA, just couldn’t leave it alone could you !

      haha 😉


  14. rob erskine 5 years ago

    Boy the bell’s my fancy for 2.10

    • Milesey 5 years ago

      Forget what i said then, BOY THE BELL doesn’t have a hope in hell 😉 😉 ha ha ha


  15. rob erskine 5 years ago

    Lol would be just my luck. Small stakes today after yesterday’s disappointment

    • Milesey 5 years ago

      i have a lump on stand guard, bit bigger then i’d like to go personally, but the lumps yesterday ended the way they did, so can’t get no money back from them. So have lumped bigger on Stand Guard !


  16. Lord Clegg 5 years ago

    I will use my Club Electra tatics today- that means taking Bandstand in a Lucky 15 along with Twa ladies Malet and Lyrath and Ace of Spies

  17. Milesey 5 years ago

    2.40 STAND GUARD 8/15 in a 4 horse race !

    That’s blinding, just hope it pays off LUMPING on it !


    • Striker 5 years ago

      I got on Stand Guard at 4/7 with Bet365, doubled with Una Bela Cosa, which unfortunately had shortened to 5/2.

  18. Arnie 5 years ago

    Hahaha Milesey

    U having a dig at Rob

    • Milesey 5 years ago

      Rob knows my comments good enough, we have lost alot of money together 😉 😉


  19. Milesey 5 years ago

  37. benny 5 years ago

    thank god for le reve

  38. rob erskine 5 years ago

    Stand gaurd for me too,

  39. Milesey 5 years ago

    SEABASS 14/1 Fav for the national, after that 2nd today.


  40. usa man 5 years ago

    jack dawkins in the 2.40 for me get the nooooooooooooooooo

  41. Arnie 5 years ago

    Comon Milesey and Rob, keep reeling those EW places, just lumping on the places and its working today, lol.

  42. rob erskine 5 years ago

    Poor start there, had no chance after that

  43. Milesey 5 years ago

    Never saw HELLBENDER winning there, but coming off a mark so low due to no form at all, maybe should have taken a chance but not in a quality field like that against it ! But nice run by HELLBENDER there.


  44. Milesey 5 years ago

    FANAAN ALDAAR E/W ? 14/1 2.25


  45. Milesey 5 years ago

    GREY MONK win


  46. rob erskine 5 years ago

    2.25 grey monk and 2.30 megastar for me, quick double

  47. Muzza 5 years ago

    Cheers mate. What’s the best “non lump” chance at Southwell in you eyes?

  48. Milesey 5 years ago


  49. Arnie 5 years ago

    No comments about that race at 2.10.

    Waiting on stand guard for my daily treble, (Bordoni, Grey Monk and Stand Guard). Now that’s worth a lump

  50. Striker 5 years ago

    I don’t usually bet horses, so a bit in the dark about this – but can you do a ‘places’ bet on it’s own? On my Bet365 online ‘coupon’ I get offered the Win plus a tick box if I want it ‘E/W’. Is it possible to just do E/W? Otherwise the way I see it, you have to do 2 equal stakes (Win + E/W) even if you don’t fancy your choice to win?

    Is this right?

    • Milesey 5 years ago

      You can just do e/w selections yes


  51. Arnie 5 years ago

    Dawkins better behave himself there otherwise

    • Milesey 5 years ago

      Last time out 42 lengths behind the winner 😉

      This race is going to get set up, then BOOOOOOOOOOOOOM STAND GUARD will just cruise through.


  52. Arnie 5 years ago

    Really, not watching the races and relying on u guys for commentaries.

    Well that bites the dust

    • Milesey 5 years ago

      Not started yet, but thats how i expect the race to go 😉

      5 minutes behind at SOUTHWELL.


  53. Milesey 5 years ago

    LOADING at southwell….

    Dawkins in front, ACTIVATE takes it on, Stand Guard into 2nd place behind ACTIVATE, DAWKINS back in 3rd, STAND GUARD cruises to the WIN !


  54. usa man 5 years ago

    southwell so riged it is enreal two punters.

  55. usa man 5 years ago

    why sit on a horse when it is going gr8 guns just too be passed.

    • Milesey 5 years ago

            I am officially s**t! Have too many bets I think

            • Milesey 5 years ago
