Un Des Sceaux and Altior light up Sandown Card.
A great afternoon's racing at Sandown yesterday.
Un Des Sceaux justified huge market support to win the Tingle Creek from the gallant Sire De Grugy.
Altior maintained his unbeaten record over fences with a clear cut win from decent opposition in the Scilly Isles.
Great to see Many Clouds return with a win at Aintree.
Vieux Lion Rouge won an exciting Becher Chase- heartbreak for Highland Lodge and jockey Henry Brooke who led all the way till just before the line.
It takes a lot to get me riled up - however.
I find it obnoxious that Racing UK use Dave Nevison as a television tipster - this man is a double bankrupt due to betting losses.
We had a great example of his dubious abilities yesterday.
He told viewers that Minella Rocco was an absolute certainty in a five horse field for the 2.40 at Aintree.
The horse, who anyone who knows anything about racing would know, is an erratic jumper.
It jumped poorly throughout and was beaten when it came down at the last at 13/8.
It was a massive lay for KSTIPS BISMARK clients.
Surely Racing UK can do better , Alex Lawrie , another regular is not a lot better.
