West Country Racing

“The best part about your service is the fact we can get on at the advised prices and don’t have to run around like maniacs or have all our accounts closed from backing them.

Keep up the good work!!!”

(Happy  Subscriber)


Having spent over 25 years in the betting industry, most of it at the “front” in the betting ring, I have come across many tipsters of various sorts. Most disappear as quickly as they appear, it’s weird how so many start off doing well then just as you think they’ve found a golden goose it turns out to be a turkey. The Gambling Gods do like to have their fun with us punting mortals. In my quarter of a century plus in the betting ring – I first set foot on a racecourse in 1983, then working for bookmakers in 1989 – I have only met two men who have consistently made it pay. One is my good friend Andrew Mount who writes profitable betting blogs on GG.COM and the other Roger Bush of West Country Racing. Read all about my stories from betting rings and Andrew’s betting success in my book Skint Mob – Tales From The Betting Ring  

I have followed Roger Bush of West Country Racing for a few years now after he badgered me to give him a try. I was dubious at first for the very reasons outlined in the first paragraph but eventually decided to give his information a go. Betting to sensible stakes and using his disciplined staking I have shown consistent profits. I have since met him personally on several occasions and now acknowledge that as well as being a genuine chap, he’s a very good knowledge of racing and has many contacts particularly in the West Country.
Roger had often said if I had some spare time could I help him with admin. I now have that time and am delighted to be helping a genuine tipster who really does know his racing and has many contacts.

******************************************NEW SERVICE *****************************************

After a break of several years due to work commitments, Roger is now able to provide his successful golf tipping service “Birdie Golf”

He has been involved in the golf industry for many years including working with international golf tournaments.

Tips are sent out on Wednesday afternoon/evening by email in time for the Thursday start for most tournaments. Always each way bets and advice on best prices and terms and full reasoning behind his selection. For more info Birdie Golf



Back to the original text and the racing service…….

As I mentioned I bet to stakes I can afford, his service isn’t for the get rich quick brigade that don’t understand racing and expect them all to win. He is a value-hunting tipster often putting up double-figure priced horses that others overlook. With that approach I will warn potential subscribers that he has some ‘character building’ losing runs hence the need for a betting bank and a betting level that you can afford. I always look at those runs as good for keeping your accounts alive. Lulling your bookmakers into a false sense of security is a good plan because stick with him, he consistently turns in profit year on year.

180 points profit in 2014*
71 points profit in 2015*
231 points profit in 2016*

65 points profit in January 2017

30 points profit in February 

29 points profit in March 

70 points profit in April

-37 points in May

4 points profit in June

-26.5 points in July 

*Those were my actual figures to prices I was able to get on at, not always ‘BOG’, though would be higher at top prices and always on BOG (Best Odds Guaranteed)

His comments in the emails he sends are informative, factual and provide a great insight into the tips. The tips are also sent by text in order for you get to get on first at the prices and read the reasoning afterwards. Roger is a busy man, often racing, and runs his service on a subscription basis. As I already mentioned, given his style he makes sure that subscribers are prepared to be disciplined and look at the long term picture.

In addition to providing the full tipping service, he also provides one off specials for Festival Meetings such as Cheltenham & Aintree

Special Offer ..Full Service including tips sent by both email & text for 4 weeks. This will enable you to trial the service to see if it suits you.If it does you will be offered a place subject to availability . JOIN NOW AND YOUR SERVICE WILL INCLUDE COVERAGE OF THE FESTIVALS.
An opportunity to try the service for just £39…please go to specials button.


I am happy to promote West Country Racing on my site in the knowledge that the service provided is first class and genuine. He does not have a web site as he operates on a low key basis. Numbers are strictly controlled to ensure availability of price. If you sign up for the full service and there are no vacancies you will be advised accordingly and of course get a full refund. I’m putting my hard-won good reputation on the line giving him a plug on my personal website and I don’t do that lightly.

Prices for his regular tipping service are

£45 a month via a 12 monthly subscription 

(Under Subscriptions on the PayPal link on the right)

£160 for three months

(Under Payment Options)

If you sign up for the 12 month subscription at £45 per month, I will be pleased to send you a complimentary copy of my book Skint Mob

                                                                            BIG ORANGE WON 5/1 (adv 8/1 MAX BET)

Here’s the exact email Roger sent his clients on the morning of Thursday 22nd June. While favourite-backers were lumping on Order Of St George (over £250,000 with Ben Keith of Star Sports alone – read all about it here http://www.starsportsbet.co.uk/simon-nott-blog-royal-ascot-thursday/ ) Roger’s clients knew better, albeit by a short-head.

Good Morning Everyone

Banksea was most disappointing yesterday and ran way below his best. Maybe one that did not handle the heat
Queen of Time ran well and finished in the frame to land our each way money

Royal Ascot 4.20 Gold Cup Class 1 over 2m 3f Big Orange 4 pt win at 8/1

I am having the maximum win bet here as this by far my strongest bet of the week. I know he is an each way price, and some of you will decide to back him each way, but with question marks about others, he has a huge chance

If he is on song, Order of St. George has obvious claims having won this race last year. He has however run pretty poorly on occasions and if Big Orange gets them stretched he could be in trouble

If Big Orange gets his early lead, I can see him keeping up a relentless gallop. Furthermore , I believe the extra trip ( First time 2m 3f ) will bring his stamina into play. Lower temperatures today will be an immense help in this top class stayers race

The Favourite may well win this afternoon, but is too short at 10/11 and gives huge value with Big Orange at 8/1. I am all about value hence the max 4 pt win bet

Royal Ascot 5.35 R King George V Stakes (3 yr olds ) Handicap over 1m 3f Mister Manduro 1 pt each way at 11/1 ( each way 4 places)

I think we could see a big improvement from this one today. Mark Johnston has 3 in the race, and all have chances, but this one has proven stamina.
Needs good early pace to bring stamina into play , and drawn in stall 14 should find himself in the right place to time his challenge
Silvestre De Sousa has chosen to ride this one from the 3 stable runners
Big each way chance

If you are at Ascot have a great day
Good Luck

WAIT FOR ME 4pt WIN (7/1 Advised) WON 5/1 

Here is Roger’s entire email to his customers.

Roger Bush

Good Morning Everyone

Not sure what Ruby was doing on Arbre De Vie yesterday. Had him way out the back ( at one stage he was nearer Cork than he was ​to the leaders !)
If you watched the race you could see he was cruising out the back and I was screaming at him to move forward a little. The inevitable , came from last to the front easily but failed to get up by half a length. One that got away I am afraid, and we were on at 12’s ..backed in to 6/1 at the off. Still 3 pts from thr each way bet

The word I had for Warthog was very strong as indicated by the fact we were on at 5/1 and he went off at 5/2 fav. A completely different ride here as Patrick Mullins set off in front and lobbed along until the pack pounced. That would not have been his instructions from Mr. D Pipe ! Patrick had already won two good races earlier in the day, so he was probably in demob mode.

On to today. We know have 43 pts in the bank for this month . A 4 point max bet at Sandown

Sandown 5.20 Handicap Hurdle Class 2 over 2m 3 f Wait For Me 4 pt win at 7/1

There is no doubting this 7 year old has a touch of class. He should probably have won more races than he has , but he has been unlucky at times.
He was fourth in the County Hurdle at Cheltenham last year beaten 6 lengths behind Superb Story. Held up but was running on up the hill.
At Cheltenham last January he was fifth behind William H Bonney in a class 2 hurdle over 2m 1f. Sent off favourite and led approaching the last but did not run on.

In this years County Hurdle he finished ninth but was only 4 lengths behind the winner, Arctic Fire , in a blanket finish. He wore a tongue tie for the first time, and that is retained this afternoon

I think he has a great chance this afternoon as he is down in grade and will be suited by the quicker ground.
The step up in trip looks a very positive move and as long as there is plenty of pace in the race, I can see him coming away after the last. His first run at Sandown Park and the track may well suit his style of running.

If all falls into place he has a huge chance in my book hence the 4pt win max bet

N. B. No bet lined up tomorrow, but will be back on Bank Holiday Monday where I have an interest in a horse running at Kempton

Have a Good Day



Minella Awards WON 7/1 2pts Each Way (10/1 advised)

Here’s Roger’s entire email sent out to clients

Roger Bush  Today at 9:11

Good Morning

La Bella Vida got no further than the second flight yesterday so I am afraid we got no run for our money

Punchestown 6.05 Grade B Handicap Hurdle over 3 miles Minella Awards 2 pts ew at 10/1 ( ew 4 places..5 places with some bookmakers)
I hoped this very lightly raced 6 year old would come over for this race as he is totally unexposed.
Second in his 4 year old point to point in Ireland In February 2015. Only beaten a neck and would probably have won had he not made a mess of the last.
Ran in a novice hurdle over 2m 5f at Newbury in November 2015 when beaten under a length by Champers on Ice who has won twice since and rated who is now rated 143
Sent of favourite at Huntingdon in Feb 2016 but disappointed and was outpaced. I suspect trip of 2m 3f was far too short

Had changed ownership and stables when running almost a year later at Plumpton in January of this year. Formerly with Nicky Henderson and now with Harry Fry. Beaten 2 lengths by No Comment who he takes on again today.

His last run was in the Grade 3 EBF Novices Handicap Final at Sandown last month which he won beating a field of 16 .
Seemed to be struggling 3 out, but knuckled down and stayed on remarkably well. He was virtually last 2 out !. That was over 2m 4f and I am sure that the step up to 3 miles will prove beneficial this afternoon and the ground should be fine.

Minella Awards has gone up 6 lbs since his Sandown win and is 8 lbs worse off with No Comment compared to their Plumpton race
No comment did winner the bumper here at this meeting last year but he has to be held up and I am not sure he gets the 3 mile trip

With just two runs this campaign, Minella Awards comes here fresh, unexposed and capable of considerable improvement running over 3 miles. It would be disappointing if he did not at least make the frame as it looks like he missed both Cheltenham & Aintree in order to be spot on for this race

Good Luck


Kelvingrove WON 12/1  (16/1 available when text sent)

Here’s Roger’s entire email sent out to clients.

Roger Bush 

2 bets today​

Haydock Park 4.20 Stayers Hurdle Class 2 over 2 m 6 f Kelvingrove 2 pts each way at 14/1​

Valuable racing at Haydock this afternoon, and the winner gets £30,950
This horse has raced off the same mark , 131, in all his 4 races this term
Ridden by Jonjo’s son , JJ on the last two occasions but Aidan Coleman is back on board this time.
He has won over this trip and on this ground.
Jonjo is having a great run at the moment with 8 winners in last 2 weeks.
He is very shrewd in this sort of handicap, and I suspect that we will see an improved performance from Kelvingrove this afternoon.
Not raced since February, but kept in work to have a pop at a decent prize when the ground firmed up

Newton Abbot 4.45 Handicap Hurdle Class 4 over 2m 5 + furlongs Plan Again 3 pts win at 6/1

Was second at Taunton last month in his first run for over 2 years that was over 3 miles, and the drop back in trip today should help.
Sure to strip fitter this time. He is a 10 year old who has raced just 9 times. Owned by Paul & Clare Rooney who have scores of horses in training so they must think there is more to come from him.
James Best rode last time and rides again although he may have the chance to ride Arthur Burrell or Let’s Go Dutchess. ” Dutchess” must have a chance at the weights , especially with Jack Sherwood claiming 3 lbs. I don’t think she will suited by the course as she needs to be held up. Not easy to time things at Newton Abbot with such a short run in.
I think Plan Again will be handy throughout and would not be surprised to see him sent off favourite

Have a good day

Roger Bush <westcountryracing1@gmail.com> Today at 9:56

Good Morning Everyone

Kentford Heiress ran a good race yesterday to get third place( 10/1 SP) and give us a small profit on our each way bet
Rather pleased to have ended the month plus 29 points having lost at Cheltenham.

We are 124 points up for this year, and on checking my records I note that we are 619 points up since 1st January 2014.

I have 3 bets today, including a bet on the Lincoln

Doncaster Lincoln Handicap Class 2 over the straight mile Bravery 1 pt each way at 14/1 ( ew 4 places. N.B some paying 5 places )

​This must have a chance with a clear run. Drawn 20 which could help as I can see ​plenty of early pace from horses drawn high
This horse joined trainer David 0’Meara two months ago. Formerly with Aidan O’Brien when owned by the Coolmore ” gang” of Mssrs Smith, Magnier & Tabor
Only a four year old, but bags of experience. Won a maiden on the AW at Dundalk, and has not won in 12 other races .
He has been keeping good company however.
In his very first run he finished second to Awtaad who went on to win the Irish 2000 guineas where Bravery finished fourth
Ran in a group 1 race for 3 year olds at Chantilly and ran in the Eclipse at Sandown last July
Somewhat lost his way since then, but O’Meara is a master in refreshing this sort of horse. If he is back on song he is well handicapped for sure.
Will need the openings to come at the right time as he is likely to be held up in the early stages

Stratford 4.30 Handicap Hurdle Class 5 over 2m 6f Le Braye

Badbad Leroy Brown comes out again quickly with a 7 lb penalty which is of set by Robert Hawker’s 7 lb allowance
North Hill was still travelling well when tipping up 3 out just 4 days ago

The presence of the above two gives us a bit of value about Le Braye who I think has a big chance. He has been running in much better company than this.
Skelton horses are back in form , and Harry Skelton rides this one for the first time.
Third last time out at Sedgefield over 2m1f . Up in trip today, on good ground, and I would expect to see Harry make plenty of use of him round this track

Uttoxeter 5.55 Mares Bumper Race over 2 miles Class 6 Lady Avery 1 pt ew at 14/1

Not the sort of race I normally look at , but this mare is interesting.
Sold for £25,000 after winning a point to point in Ireland. Now with the very small yard of Alan Jones at Minehead.
The form of her point to point win reads well. The second in the race has since won two point to points over here, and the fourth has won a point in Ireland
Yard does know how to get one ready and may be a trickle of money for it during the day.
No doubt that she would be a 5 or 6/1 shot if with one of the larger stables so some value here.
She likes to front run and showed plenty determination when winning her point

Good Luck Today


Roger Bush  Today at 9:43

Good Morning Everyone

Wizards Silabh was a shade unlucky yesterday and should certainly have landed us the place money
Too far back when the tapes went up, Paddy Brennan tried to get her into position several times only to meet a wall of horses. Eventually had to go all the way round on the outside to make up ground. She did well to finish seventh

Wincanton 4.15 Handicap Chase Class 5 over 3m 2 f How’s Vienna 4 points win at 5/2

Not the biggest price I have ever tipped, but in my book this is huge value as I have him a 5/4 shot !

Was third only 5 days ago at Exeter in a much better race than this. Novices Handicap Chase over 3 miles and was beaten less than two lengths by Zerachiel & Bacchanel who are rated 107 and 101 respectively.

Top rated in this race is Shanann Star off 95. She won here last month of a mark of 87, but finished second here earlier this month behind General Girling.
That was off her new mark of 95 which she races off today

General Girling was a 50/1 shot when beating Shanann Star and raced off a mark of 81. Managed to follow up a week later off a just 78
He races off 89 this afternoon.

How’s Vienna has scope for improvement and he should have the measure of these running off a mark of just 79 , unchanged from Exeter.
I think he might find 3 miles plus round here more to his liking than the stiff Exeter track

Has a very good chance at a price i believe represents good value

Have a good day




Minella Awards 2pts EachWay won at 8/1 (15/2 advised)

here’s Roger’s actual email

Roger Bush <westcountryracing1@gmail.com> 11 Mar at 9:10 AM

Good Morning Everyone

Nice to be sat here with over 50 points in the bank this month, and nearly 150 points for the year…Cheltenham is coming!!

I will be sending full details of the Cheltenham service to you in the next 24 hours.

In the meantime , I have two bets at Sandown this afternoon which I hope will put more into the coffers.

Sandown 1.50 Novices Handicap Hurdle Class 1 over 2m 3f Minella Awards 2 points each way at 15/2 ( ew 4 places.. if all 16 stand their ground )

​This is a valuable (£36,000) novices race , being the final of the EBF series.
Very competitive and wide open, they currently go 7/1 the field !

A very lightly raced unexposed six year old who has raced just four times , including one point to point.
Still a maiden ,but has some useful form. He was beaten a neck as 4 year old in an Irish Point to point in February 2015.
Had his first run over hurdles November 2015 when second of ten behind Champers on Ice ( beaten less than a length )
Was then sent off favourite for a Listed Hurdle at Huntingdon February 2016 but was disappointing. Not seen again until January of this year, when beaten 2 lengths behind No Comment at Plumpton. He was sent off favourite.

There is no doubt that this horse could be an above average novice and could be well in here off an opening mark of 128

Sandown 3.00 Imperial Cup Handicap Hurdle Class 1 over 2 miles Kayf Blanco 1 point each way at 10/1

A very moderate renewal of this race, where the top weight has not won for a year !
Kayf Blanco could be in here with a decent shout.
Last December he finished third behind Brain Power ( Champion Hurdle entry). January finished fourth behind Space Oddity at Exeter ( badly hampered four out).
His last run was in the Betfair hurdle a month ago at Newbury when he finished fifth behind Ballyandy ( Supreme Novice entry ) and Kayf Blanco was giving him a pound .

Has first time tongue tie and hood this afternoon which could sharpen his concentration.

I have no bet lined up for tomorrow, but will be mailing you with Cheltenham details some time during the day

Good Luck


Brave Deed 4 pt win at 4/1 won at 7/2

here’s Rogers actual email

Roger Bush <westcountryracing1@gmail.com> Today at 8:38

Subject: Tuesday 7th March

Good Morning Everyone

Nail’M finished third on Sunday to give us a couple of points profit. We were on at 16’s and he was backed in to 7/1

Exeter 4.20 Class 5 Handicap Hurdle Brave Deed 4 pt win at 4/1

This is an very low grade race in which Brave Deed has an outstanding chance if running to his best. He is a Course winner and he could make short work of this lot of this mark.
Only two runs this season and ridden on both occasions by an amateur rider.
Stable jockey rides today, and a big run is expected after a short break.
I think the drop back in trip will help
Good Luck Today

01/03/2017 One Max Bet Sleep Easy  6/1 Winner

Here’s Roger’s email.

Roger Bush <westcountryracing1@gmail.com> Today at 10:49

Hollow Blue Sky was well fancied by connections yesterday , backed in from 11/2 to 3/1 !. Never really got to the leaders and always playing catch up

Wincanton 2.40 Handicap Hurdle Class 3 over 2m 5f Sleep Easy 4 points win at 6/1

​Only six runners and a competitive handicap where all have a chance . Sleep Easy is at the top of the weights and ran poorly at Taunton last time, which is probably available at a decent price. Dangers a plenty with Pure Vision, Driftwood Haze, Town Parks & Another Frontier all previous winners or knocking at the door.

Neil Mulholland is arguably the best trainer for finding the right race for his horses and his yard are in cracking form
Sleep Easy has been dropped 2 lbs and conditional jockey takes off 7lbs, so he is 9lbs lower than his last race.
He has some decent form , particularly when third to Movewiththetimes at Fontwell last October ( beaten 5 lengths)
If we forget his last run, he must have a decent chance this afternoon.
Taunton tomorrow where I am monitoring two potential bets

Good Luck Today

20/02/17 Two Bets and Two Winners

Carlisle 2.30 Handicap Hurdle Class 4 over 2m 1f Lord Ballim 1 point each way at 6/1 WON 11/2

Carlisle 4.45 Handicap Hurdle Class 4 over 3m 1 f Midnight Request 1 point each way at 8/1 WON 6/1

Please find below Roger’s email to clients in its entirety 

Roger Bush <westcountryracing1@gmail.com> Today at 10:22

Nigel Hawke sends a couple on the long journey to Carlisle from Tiverton in Devon ( round trip of nearly 700 miles !)
The stable has come into form, and Nigel often travels far and wide when he thinks he has a chance of prize money.
Both have sound each way chances and both are more than capable of winning this afternoon

Carlisle 2.30 Handicap Hurdle Class 4 over 2m 1f Lord Ballim 1 point each way at 6/1

Ran a couple of weeks back at Towcester over 2m 3f on heavy ground. It was a lower grade than this afternoon’s race , but he cruised round on the bridle throughout the race. Out the back door until he was put in the race approaching the last looking all over the winner but failed by a head to win. With hindsight, jockey gave him too much to do and no doubting he should have got into the race a little sooner.
Up in grade today, and the handicapper has raised him 4 lbs.
Ciaran Gethings takes the ride again and his 5 lb claim means he carries 11st, 8 lbs less than at Towcester.
Tougher race today but better ground and shorter trip should help. He has valuable course experience having finished third in a novice handicap hurdle here last October over todays trip and conditions.
If he runs to Towcester form he should be in the shake up

Carlisle 4.45 Handicap Hurdle Class 4 over 3m 1 f Midnight Request 1 point each way at 8/1

Please note that the price is now 8/1. 10/1 when I sent text message but favourite is now a NR ( 4/1 when withdrawn)

Been chasing until his last run at Hereford two weeks ago. Won two chases a couple of years ago over the extended 3 miles.
Reverted to hurdles at Hereford off a mark of 102. Up with the leaders until the last when he weakened and eventually finished fifth.
Not a bad run, but the better ground here should help him. Has course experience when third in a novice handicap chase.
​He has been dropped a couple of pounds, and Robert Hawker rides again and claims 7 lbs which puts him nicely in at the weights.
Looks like his trainer has found a race he can win

Both have good chances of being in the place money, and with a bit of luck both could win

Good Luck Today

Dancing Shadow lands maximum 4pt bet at 6/1 plus a 9/1 placed selection from three wagers on 04/02/17

Full Email sent to clients below

Roger Bush <westcountryracing1@gmail.com> 4 Feb at 9:36 AM

Sandown 3.00 Handicap Hurdle Class 1 over 3 miles Valhalla 1 pt each way at 16/1

​I have not gone mad believe me. I seldom follow horses, but in this case I have to make an exception.
I know I have put him up in the past and he has cost us dear. So a modest 1 pt each way this afternoon.

At the start of the season there is little doubt that the Tizzard’s felt they had a really good horse on their hands. He had won at Exeter in the April over 3 miles with his head in his chest. Raised 10 lbs in the Autumn and the plan was to win a couple of nice handicap hurdles before going chasing.
We know the story, three runs at Cheltenham in handicap hurdles, well backed, travelling like the winner approaching the last and not getting home.
He than ran in a novice chase at Newbury on New years Eve, jumped poorly and was well beaten.

They are trying him back over hurdles today and I think there are several reasons to back him at a big price.
Firstly he is one of only 3 runners in the field that have won over this trip. Secondly, he may act better on really soft ground.
More significantly, Sandown is right handed and this may be the answer. Exeter is right handed and not dissimilar to Sandown. Interesting he finished third at Newton Abbot ( left handed ) when sent off favourite last October

The horse has a high cruising speed, and has undoubted ability and at double figure odds is worth the each way bet

Musselburgh 2.05 Handicap Chase Class 2 over 4 miles Dancing Shadow 4 pts win at 6/1

A strong bet here on a horse who I think has an outstanding chase at the weights. He has only won once in 19 runs and that was his last race at Doncaster in December over 3m 2f off a mark of 122. He has been consistent throughout his career having been placed twelve times.
Its a long way from Brayford ( nr Barnstaple N. Devon to Musselburgh) but I reckon the journey will be fruitful.
Trainer Victor Dartnall knows how to train 3 mile plus chasers. He was a very successful trainer of point to pointers in his early days.

Top Weight Just A Par carries a stone more than Dancing Shadow , and the bottom four are out of the handicap.
This is a very sharp track and it pays to lay up with the pace and not become detached. Noel Fehily rides and he is likely to have him handy

I think he will get this trip. He has been placed in three 3 mile chases at Exeter which is a very tough 3 miles.
Providing he stays up with the pace he has the ability to win this race . He has gone up 9lbs for his win at Doncaster , but 10st 9lbs is the lowest weight he has carried in his chasing career which is a huge plus as most of the main contenders this afternoon have to give him weight

There is no doubting that if he runs to his best and keeps in touch early in the race, he has an outstanding chance at the weights on ground that is ideal for him

Musselburgh 3.15 Handicap Hurdle Class 1 Listed over 2 miles Drominada 1pt each way at 8/1

A valuable race with nearly £30K to the winner. Drumcliff will probably go off a fairly short priced favourite as he looks very well handicapped on 10st 10lbs. He was certainly an unlucky loser at Kempton last time out.
Dominada has won three of his last four races, ridden each time by Megan Carberry .
His last race was here at Musselburgh when he made every yard and won very comfortably.
This is a much tougher race this afternoon and he races off a mark 11lbs higher. However, Megan again rides and claims 5 lbs which has him carrying 10st 9lbs.
If she sets off and makes all , she could last home on this tight track which suits front runners

Good Luck Today.

It has stopped raining in the West Country so hopefully racing at Taunton tomorrow will go ahead. I have a couple earmarked at decent prices. Text message may not be with you until 10.0am tomorrow and email by 10.30



2017 has started very well for WCR I am 84 points up at the time of writing (23/01/17) bolstered by an excellent weekend culminating with 20/1 winner Ice Cold Soul, here’s the email Roger sent out to all clients.

Roger Bush <westcountryracing1@gmail.com> 22 Jan at 10:33 AM
Roger Bush

Good Morning Everyone

Dadsintrouble won nicely yesterday to land a strong bet. Drifted out to 9/2 which helps

Leopardstown 3.10 Grade B Handicap Hurdle over 2 miles Ice Cool Soul 2 pts ew at 20/1 ( 4 places). N.B Several bookmakers are paying each way 5 places . Three are betting 6 places but at fifth the odds.

This is a valuable handicap hurdle with a large field. The race has a clear and obvious favourite in Heartbreak City. He is thrown in here on a mark of 125 and his jockey claims 3 lbs so he has a featherweight of just 10st this afternoon.
Heartbreak City won a couple of hurdles last Summer before winning the Ebor at York last August by 4 lengths.
He then ran a fantastic race in the Melbourne Cup when beaten a head .
Whilst his chance is very strong, I am happy to take him on at the price in a big field

Ice Cool Soul ran in a handicap here at Leopardstown a month ago. He finished 12th of 20, but travelled very smoothly until being badly hampered on the turn into the straight. Too far out to say he would have won, but he would have been thereabouts.
If he can stay out of trouble and get a clear run he should run a big race at rewarding odds.
Jonathan Moore rides and he rode him to win a handicap hurdle here at Leopardstown twelve months ago

The race last month was his first run for 12 months so he is entitled to improve. He is lightly raced with jut 8 runs.
The first three in last months race, That’s a Wrap, Veinard & After Rain all run again this afternoon. He is better off at the weights with all three.

Have a good day
