Lets start by congratulating Man City on winning the Premiership on what turned out to be an exciting season with anyone of four clubs in contention at various stages in the proceedings.
However I would like to see changes made in the laws of the game with only 5 foreign players allowed in each team plus the team that finishes 4th to play in the Europa League but the winner of the F.A. Cup to be granted the remaining Champions League place. This would bring our cup game back to its former glory with all teams out to win it. Are you listening Greg Dyke?
While I’m handing out plaudits a big well done to the Don on his 25/1 winner last week and also a great effort from Andy Bell when tipping a 100/1 chance in the 2000gns that came 4th just out the money.
I keep a close eye on my fellow tipsters and when praise is due I’m happy to heap it on those that deserve it. I might add there are not many tipsters outside the Betfan portfolio that will give you tips at those big juicy prices and you can still get on at the price advised.
Today sees the start of the York Dante Festival three days of super racing that we can all enjoy. Betfan have asked me to advise over the three days and we are running a festival special which has a few select places left if you wish get in on the action.
I would also like to take this opportunity to tell readers I have put up an ante post double for the Oaks and Derby which is available if you join my Fold4gold service for the month. Remember this could be even better than the Spring sting patent I gave away as a freebie which included a 33/1 placed horse and the Grand National winner at 20/1.
Without spilling the beans the two horses in question are trading at 40/1 and 25/1 so I’m sure you don’t want to miss out.

Last weeks Howies Hottie continued our good run when Communicator was 3rd in the Chester Cup at 10/1 advised so lets see if we can keep the pot boiling.
Now with me doing the Dante Special I don’t think it’s fair to give a York tip even if I think I have found a good one up there. So I am going to play on the evening card at Chepstow in the 7.55.
This is a competitive mile handicap with 11 runners and the selection could well be the outsider of the entire field but dont let that put you off.
The horse is called Tenbridge and her form figures at this track are 2211 which says to me she loves it down at the Welsh track. Chepstow is a very undulating course and some horses love it while others hate it.
Tenbridges form tailed off towards the end of last season and she needed her first run of the current campaign and now back in her favourite part of the world she could surprise some of her more fancied rivals.
7.55 Chepstow – Tenbridge – 14/1 Each Way (Betvictor)
Seagull Star trainer W.Haggas – The colt hated the soft ground at Chester but still finished a respectable 4th. A return to a firmer surface will show a big improvement.
Pethers Moon trainer R.Hannon – Another who hates soft ground and will be a better proposition when the rains stop.
Ruwaiyan trainer J.Tate – Drawn on the wrong side in Ascots Victoria Cup but still the first home on his side. With better luck with the draw and drier conditions he should be a big player next time out.
Criteria trainer J.Gosden – Just touched off in the Lingfield Oaks trial this filly is improving all the time and has royal ascot on her agenda.
Born To Surprise trainer L.Carter – A winner on the polytrack last weekend this in form horse can win again back on the green stuff.
Back next Wednesday have a good week and be lucky.
