I hope you all have had a very Merry Christmas so far… Decided to get the blog up for Boxing Day while the kids are busy playing with the empty boxes that their new toys came in and before the alcohol starts to flow!!
Plenty of racing to try and take in over the next few days, some of it top drawer, some not so. As usual we will have a NAP, NB & IWAC which will count towards our points but I will also be listing horses I picked out from across all meetings as a kind of shortlist, along with full cards for Kempton and Leopardstown…. these will not be added to the P&L win or lose (unless stated), they are just here as guidance on horses that stood out for me when working through the cards.
Here we go….
