    I was watching the racing from Royal Ascot today and now I realize why I prefer National Hunt. There was a race, the Jubilee Handicap, which paid 1 million. That kind of money is a fortune to people in racing syndicates, and to the smaller trainers that train a lot of their horses. But at the end of the day it was Godolphin who won all the money again, it's always either them or Coolmore. Now I like a bet just like lots of other people, but it's getting like football, the people with more money are increasingly becoming the only ones that win anything major. At least in NH there's still a fighting chance for the small man to come good. Apologies to anybody who backed the winner of the Jubilee by the way, that was just my opinion.

    What's happened between Dettori and Gosden? Has Frankie been emptied because of his performance at Ascot?

    What a performance from Trueshan in the Northumberland Plate, giving away at least 19 pounds to the rest of the field!

    That was a brilliant performance, well worth the 3/1 on offer, considering how much weight he was carrying too.

    Wow, well done to anybody who backed Pyledriver in the King George (18/1), the only horse to get anywhere near him was the Arc winner Torquado Tasso, the well fancied horses were all beaten out of sight.

    What a grand old warrior Stradivarius is, touched off for a 5th win in the Goodwood Cup. Great old horse, and proof that it's not only Dettori that gets the best out of him. The winner is a good horse too though.

    What about Baaeed at York today? As good as Frankel? Still unbeaten and looks in a class of his own.

    If they run him in the Arc he might even be as good as Sea The Stars.

    Decent

    I'm sure Baaeed would get the trip, given the way he tanked through 1m 2 today. It would be great to see.

    Well that's the Arc over for another year. Alpinista won by half a length. Well done to the horse and anyone that backed him, but I'm not and never have been a fan of the trainer who's an outspoken supporter of hare coursing, hunting, bullfighting and cockfighting. But the horse has done nothing wrong, and has amassed a number of wins at the highest level. I think it went off at about 7/2 unless you took an early price.

    Yep I'm the same. Not a huge Luke Morris fan either with all the bumping up and down and flashing his whip everywhere but give him credit, he rode a brilliant race today. And that was a jockey who was riding a 125/1 shot at Wolverhampton the other day.
