One week into the football season and last years Premiership top four are again holding the same positions after only playing one game each, don’t you find that kind of boring?
Lets hope there are plenty of shocks along the way and perhaps a dark horse appearing to frighten the life out of Mourinho, Pellegrini, Rodgers and Wenger and I say that being a life long Gunners fan. Otherwise we will find the game being as boring and predictable as it is in Scotland, Spain and Germany.
I have to say the best thing about the start of the season were some of the players haircuts I just love those Mohican styles with blonde highlights. I think Simon Holden would look great with that hair style when he presents Betfan T.V.
Come on Simon show us that you are a sophisticated follower of fashion.
Today sees the start of the York Ebor Festival of racing and what a treat we have on opening day with Australia going in the Juddmonte International against some top opposition plus a superb supporting card of the highest order.
My best bet of the day goes at Kempton but that’s for paying clients but for Howies Hottie I’m sticking to York for the 4.20 a very competitive 2 mile handicap. The selection is Brian Meehans Number One London who is a horse that has improved since the trainer put him up in trip.
The gelding ran well at Royal Ascot and last time had an impossible task carrying 9st 11lbs and gets in here with only 8st 6 lbs on his back. I have to say he is not the most consistent of animals but that will be factored into the price as I expect him to be available at big juicy double figured odds representing our old friend value.

4:20 York – Number One London – Each Way Bet 33/1 (william hill)
Joe Packet trainer J.Portman – Ran a good 2nd at Newmarket on ground softer than ideal back on a sounder surface he will be hard to beat.
Wigmore Hall trainer M.Bell – The horse has dropped to a winnable rating and showed all his old ability when pipped in a photo last week.
Smokethatthunders trainer J.Unett – finished well at Chester a course that didn’t suit and back on a more conventional track he should go close.
Kaiulani trainer M.Channon – The filly had been off for an age before this race and was making headway when hampered in a race full of hard luck stories. She will come on bundles for the race and retains stack of ability.
Back next Wednesday have a good week and be lucky.
