There are no system selections again tomorrow…
IMPORTANT:…I am debating how best to make these daily posts more informative, getting the balance right between ‘tipping’ and providing stats based horses which you can use as a ‘way in’ to help with your own thinking. I think the ‘Shortlist’ could be better so here is what I am going to propose moving forwards, for the time being…
A tip will be a tip (Tips/Big Race Previews), that is straightforward enough. I am going to ‘abolish’ The Shortlist and replace it with a ‘Today’s Stats’ section…this will be 1-3 horses of interest derived from various stats. I will endeavour to post these the evening before so that it gives you time (those of you who want it) to use that information as you please. While I will look at the horse in question I will not be looking at other horses in the race etc – the aim is to try and provide some objective information to help you. Now, I may end up ‘tipping’ a horse from this list, which as always will indicate I have looked through the race in more depth and have a certain level of confidence. Naturally I will track the results of these ‘Today’s Stats’ horses so that over-time we can get a feel for how they do – and it may be that it gets to the point where backing them blind is desirable. I know there are some of you who just want to back my ‘tips’, there are some that want information to help with their own selections and there are plenty of you in-between.
Now, if I don’t ‘tip’ a ‘Today’s Stats’ horse that doesn’t mean I dont think it has a chance. It means it may be in a race type I would not normally play in and a such may struggle for ‘tipping confidence’ or usually this will mean I have not/will not have the time to go through a race in depth required for me to be happy to ‘tip’ something. Sometimes you can over-think this game and if I am happy that there are some solid stats, and that the horse looks interesting, I will put them up. From there it is over to you!
Please do let me know what you think about this slightly different approach and/or what you may do to improve these posts further.
So, with that said…
