The football season has ended and we’re wandering around on Saturdays following the wife round town, kicking our heels and waiting for the new season to begin. But fear not, the international weekend is just round the corner and whether you like national fixtures or not, ultimately, football is football.
A win is a win in any walk of life, but it’s fair to say Warren Gatland’s British & Irish Lions side were rather lacklustre and lethargic in their victory against the Provincial Union on Saturday in game one of the tour in New Zealand.
We hit the crossbar a few times last weekend but have still been among the winners during the week and I was particularly pleased with DOTTED SWISS who won on her debut at Lingfield. She's a very smart filly and we would have to look at Royal Ascot now and something like the Albany.
Two domestic Champions meet in Cardiff on Saturday night as the curtain comes down on the Champions League in the Welsh capital. We’ve seen thrills and spills, Monaco’s great run, which will ultimately cost them to lose 49 of their great young players, and who can forget that bonkers 8-4 game between Dortmund and Legia Warsaw in the group stage back in November last year? Anyway, it comes down to this!
