Well today’s Pace selection was poor and as you will read in the update on the post I deserved it really. I think I am starting to struggle mentally with these posts if truth be told. I dare say that is the lack of winners/long losing run talking. Anyway, there will be no Pace Selection tomorrow as again nothing stands out…
In future if there is no post by 10pm it means there will be no pace selection the following day. Given that I think this angle needs to be more selective I think that is the best way forward. As I have said before I dont really have a grip on the All-Weather racing and so much of it is poor quality it is hard to fathom, especially when you dont follow it closely. I prefer backing in 3m+ chases and Sprint Handicaps on the flat turf. This angle should come into its own once the flat season starts up again. In the meantime, I don’t want to be betting in races that I wouldn’t normally bet in so the Pace angle will have to be more selective. Finding a bet every day is proving to be difficult, or near impossible, especially when over jumps, bar system bets and ‘profile’ horses, i would normally only play in handicap chases, and even then only those that are at least 3 miles. As time goes on I think this post will have to change from finding a front runner that may last home, to a more general appreciation of how the pace set up in a race will affect the result. While we are still in profit I will take stock and hopefully be back with a selection for Monday.
In the meantime I do plan to look at a couple of races on Saturday and these will be posted in due course.
