Pace Wins The Race: Selections 01/12/14

Re-Cap Well Comeonginger was rather disappointing. I thought it was soft however the ground was later changed to heavy and i dont think he liked it. Combined with the fact that he couldnt get to the front meant we knew our fate early on. To his credit he kept on well and there will be […]

Pace Wins The Race: Selections 27/11/14

Re Cap  Well sometimes you just have to hold your hands up. That was a clonker and the first selection where I have been disappointed with myself. So, apologies. My instinct said leave alone and it should have been a no bet day. As stated I thought there may be a contest for the lead […]

Pace Wins The Race: Selections 26/11/14

Re-cap Well another ‘winner’ today as Debt To Society did everything I thought he wouldn’t do and still won!  When you put up a font runner it is always a bit confusing when they are held up but the jockey knew what he was doing. As noted he used to be held up but had […]

Pace Wins The Race: Selections 24/11/14

Re-Cap I have been away for the last few days and have yet to watch a replay of any races however it looks like Al Alfa just wasnt good enough and as I thought may happen Venetia’s horse bolted up. When they win like that 5/2 looks a massive price and in hindsight maybe it […]

Pace Wins The Race: Selection 28/11/14

Re-Cap  Well a day of two halves. Less said about the Irish picks the better. Both very poor but at least the winner came from the three shortlisted – although saying the favourite has a chance isn’t the most original analysis! As it happened the money poured in for the fav and he won like […]

National Hunt Handicap Hero

When looking at micro systems and angles, especially those that are trainer based, I like to keep things simple. My usual starting point for looking at a trainer is to look at their overall record in handicaps since the start of 2010, usually with horses priced 14/1 or shorter. From there I can then dig […]

Pace Wins The Race: Selections 25/11/14

Re-Cap Letemgo led from flag to post with the jockeys in behind giving Tom Cannon far too much rope. Come the end of the race any fears over the trip or ground had proved unfounded and it was a rather easy 3.5 points profit. Onto tomorrow and the first thing to say is that rarely […]

Pace Wins The Race: Selections 21/11/14

Re-cap The first ever ‘Pace Wins The Race’ selection didn’t cover the post, nor myself, in glory. It got off to a poor start with Guna Be  A Devil who couldn’t get the easy lead I hoped and faded rather tamely, maybe suggesting that the ground was a bit too soft for him. As it […]
