We will have a tip for all races shown on ITV which we will send to all VIP members on the morning of the races.  If you are not yet a VIP member, please join VIP for free.

No betting market as yet but I fully expect Wetherby 1st and 3rd DUFFLE COAT and CABOT CLIFFS to be popular along with the impressive Chepstow winner HELL RED. These are my 3 against the field.

How did we do?

All three ran on the day

Keith's Tip on the day:

No tip from Keith as this race wasn't shown on ITV.

The winner was DUFFLE COAT, CABOT CLIFFS finished fourth and HELL RED pulled up with repoted breathing problems.
