Welcome to arseonlineracing. A 100% independent racing website with NO affiliate links. This website is curated by 2 racing enthusiasts 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 king…

It has been an interesting week with Altior being not himself, only for him to still be in the big race on Saturday with news breaking via a blog rather than the BHA… It was a mess and no doubt this will run for a while longer. We don’t have any association with Bookies on this site, so no worries for us!!

FEELERS….
We are always open to the idea of a sponsor, not via financial gain but maybe with competition prizes. If anyone is interested then get in touch!

Enough of that, you can get a daily update from twitter, you don’t need us to babble on about it on here too, so we will just get straight to it…. Charlie leads the way with Rich having the Final Word…..

Charlie –

Wetherby 3.25 – Éclair De Guye -Was 2nd at Warwick to Avantgardist by 2 and 3/4 lengths over 2m 5f back in March last year in a class 4 handicap hurdle. Was then sent to Southwell and finished 5th over 2m 7f and 209y in October last year. Won a class 4 Handicap Chase at Fontwell over 2m 5f and 135y when beating Battle Of Ideas by 1 and 3/4 lengths in November. Was then sent to Chepstow on the 7th December and finished 6th over 2m 3f and 98y behind winner Domaine De L’isle. That race didn’t pan out after stumbling at the 10th obstacle and jock losing the irons. If showing similar form to race run at Fontwell in November could easily bounce back here but will need to step up considerably based on that previous race at Chepstow.

Win Advised

Warwick 3.35 – One For The Team -Has finished 2nd on last two starts, with the first of those coming at Worcester when finishing 1 and 1/2 lengths behind Big Shark over 2m 7f in a Class 5 Maiden Hurdle. The 2nd of those came at Newbury when losing by 3/4 of a length to Champers On Ice over 3m and 52y in a Class 2 Handicap Hurdle back in November last year. If turning up in same mood today should go one better in a very open looking handicap.

Win Advised

Chelmsford 5.45 – Merchant Of Venice – Was 7th here on last visit back in July last year but was only beaten just over 4 lengths on that occasion. Was then off track for 5 months before making reappearance at Newcastle on the 18th December when finishing 5th some 2 lengths behind the winner Northernpowerhouse over 7f and 14y. Should strip fitter here and with a similar display can gain compensation, although does carry a bit of a risk as hasn’t won since landing a hat-trick back in March last year.

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 pockets. I will now hand you back over to Rich for the Final Word.
