    1. Hi Ken – May i ask what if anything your minimum price is for your bets/tips and what qualifies or are there several different aspects ?

      Thanks Pige !

      1. After returning from holiday, I’m in the process of doing a full review of my stats but currently the minimum odds are 4/1. There are a number of other factors to decide which horses qualify but don’t want to give too much away.

  3. as Cheltenham draws ever nearer iv’e been casting my eye over Skybets first race money back as a free bet if your horse loses offer (up to £20) and taking into account which race horses are most likely to run in have come up with these.
    day 1, Kalashnikov 9-2
    day 2, On The Blind Side 9-2
    day 3, Benatar 8-1
    day 4, Redicean 4-1

    i had thought of going for longer priced horses but as only the win part of the bet counts i have settled for these.

  4. Hi Josh, as it has been a quiet week I took the opportunity to go through some “filing” and came across the One Track Trainers system which was my introduction to you and RTP back in 2014. I wondered whether you were still following the system and, if so, do you still use the same list of trainers?

    Well done to Phil Mick last night and also to Colin for tipping him!

    1. Hi Johnny,
      Nope I don’t follow 1TT any longer… it performed ok in that year, just about turned a profit – 20-30 points I think, but I didn’t think performance was anywhere near good enough to continue with that approach, hence why I didn’t launch it again etc. On reflection it may well be the logic underpinning it is no longer sound/valid, I’m not sure. I certainly don’t think it works as a ‘systematic’ approach but it can be useful info for starting points etc. I do think there are other issues though… knowing if a trainer has actually shared transport or sent horses up to be stabled a night before etc. I don’t think there is any point in a blanket ‘one runner at the track’ – but I think looking at actual track records and maybe specific track records when only having one runner on card may be of some interest. So, that’s a long winded way of saying ‘no’ in answer to your question! 🙂

      Yes, well done Colin, another biggie goes in.

      1. Thanks Josh, I thought it was an interesting angle.
        You may be pleased to hear that it has not been confined to the bin but to the “may revisit” file – in quite exalted company actually with Ben Aitken’s Return to the Track and Matt Bisogno’s Irish Lucky 13 (when he was trading as betfolio!).

  5. At KP today a number of horses having a jog on the sand before engagements at the festival next week. One such runner is Chesterfield. I was talking to an acquaintance in the downtime we have had lately and he said that connections were going for a big odds plunge in a handicap at the festival. I have not looked through all of the races entries but if the horse turns up and you want to back it get on early.

    1. Yeah would definitely be the County. Has been mentioned once or twice in the previews given his mark is down to more or less what he won the Scottish Champion Hurdle off of last year but the key to the horse is good ground so depends on how much it rains over the next week or so.

      1. Rain expected! I have had a go at 33/1 NRNB each way. If he Scoots up on the sand the price may go? I know the owners have it at 50/1 and so they should have a good party of it goes in.

        1. Lot of rain from midnight to early evening and a six hour period of showers on Sunday, so ‘soft’ begins to look inevitable.

    2. That run should warm him up nicely for next weeks coup! #I feel another holiday coming up.

      1. Best of luck mate. Hope he comes in for you.

        I find it highly amusing how bookies can slash the price of a horse for a race at Cheltenham after its won a class 4 AW bumper which has very little relevance. I was curious as to the record of horses running in a jumpers bumper before a chase or hurdle race at Cheltenham and I am afraid record reads 0/30, 2p so trends against you I am afraid although it is a small sample size.

        1. Every stat gets busted in the end. It’s just a question if this will be when it does? Any excuse to shorten the odds on a horse. I was told to expect more money for the horse.

          1. Hmm, and all Cheltenham Festival handicappers that ran on AW LTO are 0/54,3p since 2003. But, such stats are there to be broken!
            I do laugh Martin at the idea of a ‘coup’ at the most competitive racing jumps Festival of the year. They, like about half of all runners in every race I suspect, may well think they are ‘well in’ ! He may well be, but you don’t set up a gamble for a Festival handicap with much confidence! Well, not unless you are a big gun with many a previous Festival winner who has something t judge current crop against… clearly you have to have something on at Cheltenham but I’d keep an eye on him for Aintree and maybe Ayr again,

          2. I`m with you Josh, i think Chesterfield likes a flat or, tight track maybe like Huntingdon or Aintree , or the old course at Cheltenhman ,all of which he has won on before.
            Think the New course will find him out, could be wrong ,but, i`ll stick my neck out and say place at best..

  6. Agreed – from what I’ve seen in predictions I think ‘Good’ in any going description will be a miracle, more chance of heavy by all accounts.

    1. Cheltenham dries out very quickly so a week is a long time however not looked at the long term weather forecast,tomorrow going up a few degrees so could be better ground than expected.
