Although all our budgets took a hit last week with only one winner and no placed horses. It was our worse results since starting this Saturday racing blog. This week we’ll have to raise our game.
Again it’s the terrestrial television racing that is followed and these are at two meetings, Newbury and Newcastle. Both offer some really good races and there will be plenty of excitement and my guess some upset of favourites.
