Hello and welcome to arseonlineracing. This website is  100% independent & has NO affiliate links., curated by 2 racing enthusiasts from either end of the British Isles with Charlie hailing from Glasgow & Rich from the Isle of Wight, although miles apart they are united by the sport of kings….

Having taken a couple of weeks away after Goodwood, we are raring to go and this is the prelude for the York Ebor festival with some fantastic racing to look forward to during the coming week.

Many things have been said & written especially on twitter this week, some was out of order and although we may disagree with someone’s opinion the abuse was bang out of order, by all means make your point but you do not have to resort to personal abuse of any kind. All you have to do is simply block or unfollow, it really is that simple!

Right now that is out the way, we shall get down to the business of racing….

Mr Charlie will have his Saturday Selections while Master Rich will have the Final Word!

Charlie –

Ripon – 2.05 – Flying Pursuit 8-1 -Although without a win since 28th July last year at York, when beating Golden Appolo by a neck over 6f with Growl back in 4th. Flying Pursuit has ran some decent races without winning this year most notable was when finishing 4th behind Firmament at York on the 15th June this year over 7f. Flying Pursuit has slipped down the ratings and is now on a very handy mark and with ground conditions in his favour today could easily make a mockery of that 8-1 price, if repeating the form shown on previous run at York 4 starts back should be enough to take the spoils today.

Win Advised


Doncaster 2.50 – Presedential 11-2 -Although Presedential is without a win since 3rd November last year when beating London by 2 and 1/4 lengths at Newmarket over 7f. Had hinted of a return to form at Ayr 2 starts back when finishing a 3/4 of a length 2nd behind Start Time over 7f and 50y. Was a tad disappointing last time out at Redcar when finishing 9th behind winner Wahoo over 7f. If repeating form shown at Ayr 2 starts back that could be enough to get involved here.

Win Advised


Newbury – 4.45 – Ocala 5-1 – Has won 2 times from last 4 starts, with the wins coming at Chepstow over 1m and 14y on the 23rd May when beating Ragstone View by 2 lengths. Won again on the 28th June at Chester over 1m 2f and 70y when beating Nearooz by a 1/2 length. Was 6th last time out at Goodwood but was only beaten about 4 lengths by winner Mannaal. With a repeat of the form shown so far Ocala looks overpriced at 5-1 and is my final win selection for today.

Win Advised


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






Final Word with Rich –

Thanks Charlie, it’s good to be back & let’s hope it’s a good weekend leading into York…

I have 3 from Newbury, where the going is Soft…..

2.25 Geoffrey Freer Stakes… Group 3… 1m 5f 61Yds…

Sextant…. 3 wins from 4 runs this season, winning the last 2 over 1m 4f in Class 2 company and now steps up to Group level and a slight rise in trip. Landed a Class 2 Ascot 1m 4f Handicap last time out on July 26th by 1 & 3/4 lengths…

3.35 Hungerford Stakes…. Group 2… 7f…

Safe Voyage…. 3 wins from 4 runs this season having won in a Class 2 Handicap on season return in April before taking the Listed Spring Trophy in May. Made it 3 from 3 when landing the Group 3 John of Gaunt Stakes in June. All 3 wins at Haydock. Finished 3rd by 1 & 1/2 length when running in the Group 2 7f Minstrel Stakes at the Curragh on July 20th to Romanised, who has since won a Group 1 in France & now has a chance to turn round the form with Hey Garman, who was 2nd at the Curragh and is in the field today. Has a fine record on soft/good to soft & heavy ground with 5 wins from 6 runs in these conditions….

That is everything for you today folks, we hope to have @Glen_Colt back from Holiday in time for York and we have commissioned Mr Chris Price to write some pieces ahead of the National Hunt season….

No complaints from us here.. Just solid research!

All the Best – Charlie & Rich
