Hello and Welcome to arseonlinetips. A 100% independent racing website, with no affiliate links and no hassles. This site is run for the enjoyment of racing by two enthusiast from either end of the British Isles. Charlie hails from Glasgow, while Rich is from the Isle of Wight. Miles apart but united by the sport of kings…

We have been quiet for a few days, mainly sorting new interviews and letting the dust settle on the weekend. As regular readers will know, we only blog when we find something we like and not for the sake of betting….

Midweek Madness is a standard blog, with Charlie’s Selections and Rich having the Final Word, so lets get down to business….

Charlie –


Minellatillmorning -Won a Class 5 Conditions Hurdle at Taunton over 2m 3f in February. Was then sent to Fontwell 11 days later to contest a Class 4 Handicap Hurdle and won again beating The Green Ogre by 6 lengths. Latest run came at Chepstow when finishing 2nd over 2m 3f to Helluvagood who won by  10 lengths. Although was soundly beaten last time if repeating form shown in the two races prior to that should be thereabouts again and at 12-1 is an Eachway play.

Eachway Advised


Bamako Du Chatelet -Won last two starts at Lingfield over 1m6f and 2m. Only win away from Lingfield came here last year off 2lbs lower. Takes a drop in distance today to 1m 4f and 51y,  if pace is quick that should play to his advantage here and a bold run is anticipated.

Win Advised


Danehill Quest -Has finished 2nd here last twice over 1m 4f and 1m 3f and looks to be finally holding his form. If getting a quick break and a faster pace that could play to his strengths and could be third time lucky here.

Win Advised


Well that’s my thoughts on today’s selections, good luck if following and please remember to keep stakes small so it doesn’t hurt your pocket. I will now hand you back over to Rich for the Final Word.


Final Word with Rich –

Thanks Charlie, it’s good to be back especially after a couple of nice winners in this column on Sunday…. Lets crack on …. A couple of National Hunt races and then on to the All Weather…

Chepstow…. Good to Soft…

1.10 Maiden Hurdle… Class 5… 2m 3f 100yds…

Not Normal… Robin Des Champs gelding trained by Miss Emma Lavelle and is a half brother to Irish Listed winning hurdler Blood Crazed Tiger. He was beaten by 1 length when runner up on his final bumper start over 2m at Warwick in January. Hurdles debut on season return….

2.15 Novice Handicap Chase… Class 4… 2m 7f 131yds…

Garrane… The C/D winning hurdler was a 3 length runner up on chase debut at this course on October 30th and the 3rd from that race has since won….

Warwick… Good..

12.30 Novice Hurdle.. Class 4.. 2m,,

Harambe… Was 3rd in the Grade 2 Bumper(NHF) at Aintree back in April & that form is working out well, with 1st,2nd,4th & 6th all winning on hurdle debut. Harambe was brought down on Hurdle debut at the first on November 7th at Chepstow and all being well, this could be compensation for that….

I have one on the All Weather for you…

Kempton(AW).. Standard..

6.40… Listed Stakes… Class 1… 1m..

Victory Bond… His AW form reads 1/2/1/2/1 and was last seen on the all weather back in March when landing the AWC Easter Classic at Lingfield from Master the World, who won the Churchill Stakes on Saturday at Lingfield. Victory Bond was last seen in May when putting in a below par run on the turf in a Listed race…..

That is all for today folk… Thank you to everyone who has read & RTd  our latest interview with John Dance and for your fantastic comments. It means a lot to us at arseonline HQ….
