York Ebor: Day 1 (Oh dear)

UPDATE… Well, that was over before it begun sadly based on how that race panned out. I have learnt something for the notebook there I believe and that is treat anything drawn high with extreme caution when there is rain in the ground. Nothing drawn high got into that and the low drawn horses that […]

Tip of the Day: 18/08/15

I do like when a race goes exactly to plan and it was great to see SDS have them all at it turning for home. It was then just a question of whether the horse wanted to win and there was clearly nothing wrong with her attitude. For the moment, until she gets stronger, 5f […]

Tip of the Day: 17/08/15

I hope you had an enjoyable weekend. There is some great sport to look forward to this week and later today I will be looking to see if I can find any decent stats relating to handicaps at the Ebor meeting, which promises to be a superb few days of racing.  For now, a trip […]

Tip of the Day: 14/08/15

Backing horses that look like they want to win is normally a good start and arguably yesterday’s winner was the only one in the race with such an attitude. Thankfully the jockey read the post the rode the perfect race 🙂 Hopefully I can get up the hat-trick today… Running Total (Trial): 30 bets / […]

Tip of the Day: 20/08/15 + York Notes

Well a decent enough day for the ‘unofficial’ bets on the blog, mentioned in dispatches. Spirit Raiser hacked up for James Fanshawe (5/1>7/2) for that micro system and Tony Martin had a decent winner at York (7/1) – Running at Galway before looks to be a clear prep for his runners with a chance here. […]

Tip of the Day 19/08/15

I am posting now (9.13 pm, 18/08) so I can have a good look at York, and specifically the 1.55, tomorrow morning. Chancery made a mockery of his opposition today and he really has turned into a C3 bully, with ability to win a C2 if everything drops right. He will pay for a few […]

York Ebor Meeting: Trainers

Below are some stats for the handicaps at this week’s Ebor meeting. Clearly we are dealing with small sample sizes in most cases but they are still a useful pointer and should help narrow down the field when analysing  any given handicap.  (as always my thanks go to Chris and his team behind HorseRaceBase, without […]

Saturday 15/08/15

Just a quick note to say that I think the Great British weather has put paid to any confident wagers on Saturday. There are two decent sprint handicaps at Ripon I was looking forward to getting stuck into but the ground could be anything between good and heavy depending on rain levels. If it is […]

Tip of the Day: 13/08/15

A welcome return to the winners enclosure who found plenty when asked and is clearly progressing well. A minor irritation of a R4 deduction but still 2.25 points to add to the pot. 5/2 about a 6/4 shot is the way to do it.  Running Total (trial): 29 bets / 6 wins / 13 places […]
