  • Hi Josh,

    Kim’s also got Sea Story in the 3.50.

    Happy New Year to all at RtP

    • Cheers Mike, yep he has… this year’s NHF angle just looks at unraced horses and he ran here a few weeks back, unseating in the process! Jockey bookings suggest Sea Story is more fancied but who knows, Kim was 5/5 with his NHF newbies here before his last runner, now 5/6 in recent years.
      Happy new year to you too,

  • Southwell 1:40 Vroom is a tad interesting tomorrow at 9-1 currently, not sure of the stats but I remember reading somewhere that when GK applies some form of headgear to a horse for the first time they can shown improvement. Only reason I remember it was because I ignored it and that afternoon a 16-1 winner followed duly unbacked! More research needed but might be worth a look

    • Hi Mark…

      Hmmm, not sure where you read that but I haven’t found much on the Gay Kellaway headgear front, having just had a look…
      last 5 years, horse’s 1st run in headgear….

      93 bets / 9 wins / 27p / +7 SP / +29 BFSP / AE 0.95

      those results skewed by 2 biggies, 20/1+

      broken down by headgear: CP 3/31,10p, Blinkers 3/29,9p , others smaller numbers

      In handicaps, all 1st time headgear, 2/37,14p


      having been thinking while writing this… and having looked again…

      IF you just focused on 1st time headgear, All-Weather, Class 6

      19 bets / 5 wins / 8 places / +41 SP / +53 BFSP

      In handicaps 0/9,2p, in non handicaps (winners in maiden, claimers, sellers) 5/10,6p, +62 BFSP

      So, there is something there. And it makes logical sense… poor animals in the worst class of racing really- an all-weather class 6 (well,there is C7) – needing to find an edge, 1st run headgear doing the trick.

      Even more so in claimers/sellers if Gay plans to sell a horse – what better advertisement than when they bolt up in first time headgear, probably never to run well again!!

      (as an aside that’s a logical angle i’ll add to the to-do list, 1st time headgear in sellers/claimers. hmmm)

      hope that’s helpful, very micro, but may throw up the odd biggie over time,

    • That’s better. Tellovoi goes in at 12’s. Can’t believe he won really. Had to be dragged a furlong just to go to gate then totally missed the break. Stormed through to win by a nose.

      Off and running for 2018.

    • Meandmyshadow also squeaks home at 9s. Profit for the day guaranteed. Anything else from Wolves is a bonus. Fingers crossed 🙂

  • It’s something or nothing really Josh but just pointing out you’ve missed the S3 from the qualifier 2.00 Muss.

    • Ah yes, so I have, cheers! yep do always point those out albeit hopefully everyone gets used to the codes in time, but i can make the odd clanger every now and then.

  • Intresting horse 12.40 Southwell general allenby seems to have found its form over 2 miles and still on a good mark last time out raced wide causing it to use itself up to soon. One unknown is the track if it handles it could win this .

  • I’m waiting on lady of the night (s2) @14s for a nice bet fingers toes eyes all crossed this is when experience in laying would come in handy

    Aaron Lumsden 03/01/18 3:37 PM Reply

    • GL, i had a nibble at 18s but don’t get your hopes up with these unraced horses! 🙂 This is the track Bailey tends to target with a decent bumper horse/those that are ready first time, but he has another here which Bass is on and a well fancied Hendo fav, so who knows! Given his record here with NHF horses first run, was worth a dabble at that price. I don’t do laying so will leave that to others! Not much point if you are a recreational punter.

  • Ew returns small profit I real got caught up in mikey Hamil deserting the main stable hope

    Aaron Lumsden 03/01/18 3:57 PM Reply

    • hmm, don’t think a case if Mikey deserting, he would have been told which one he was riding and I suspect Bass has ridden both at home – he would have had first choice I think but could have that wrong. But you can’t not back a biggie on that basis.
