4.Any general messages/updates etc

A few things to flick through on a quiet Sunday if you haven’t taken look already…


The Chasing Game... there’s a new post and feature length video looking at my approach to 3m+ handicap chases and a few things I can improve on. You can check that out HERE>>>


Handicap Chase ‘System’ 

I haven’t got round to typing up my notes yet but in the meantime the main thrust of my research was…

  • Handicap Chase (not novice) 
  • Aged 4-9 
  • Class 3/4/5
  • Ran 1-20 days ago
  • 0-2 wins in handicap chases (inc Novice)
  • 2013-

865 bets / 254 wins / 430 places / 29.36% SR / 50% w|p SR / +15 SP / +68 BFSP / AE 1.01


  • 11/1 or bigger: 0/20,3p
  • Drop in Class from last run: 16/81,34p, -30
  • 3m-3m4f: 82/268,137p, +50, +70 BFSP, AE 1.17


As a ‘starting point’ for finding bets/helping with chase analysis, I thought that looked quite promising. Anyway, use/ignore that how you please. All being well I will post ‘qualifiers’ in the test zone..NOT to be backed systematically I don’t think. There are no qualifiers on Thursday.

  1. hi josh , was just wondering if you or anyone knows whether the ” Proform software ” would be of any help in my following filtering .

    At a touch of a button of course 🙂 ……………………

    filter 1/ . I would like to know in each race what trainer has had a winner within the last 3 days / what jockey has a winner in his last 3 rides / and does it / can it update the trainer / jockey info on a race by race basis during the day ( at least the racing post does that now 🙂 )

    filter 2/. Anything sired by my inputed sire.
    filter 3/ . what of horses have won under the prevailing ground conditions ?

    i could go on 🙂 ( i know i do 🙂 ) and i know i could manually get this from my racing post page ( but sometimes i find racing post a bit restricted on the information i am after and can’t permanently erase the horses i have disregarded from my morning filtering ……. maybe i go back to buying the paper again and scrawl over each race ?)
    any thoughts on proform and it’s adaptability would be great 🙂


    1. Hi Brian.. i don’t use Proform and in general it seems way overpriced to my eyes… certainly for the recreational punter. I believe a few pros use it and you can access some of their stats through Betdaq for free.
      When it comes to stats research I am a HorseRaceBase user. I can answer questions on that but certainly if you’re interested in such stats research you should give it a go.
