  1. Cracking start to this evening’s racing at Wolves with 3 winners from the first 3 races. Always a worry when you put up so many qualifiers but has worked out tonight. Would it be rude to wish for more? 🙂

    AW racing comes from Southwell tomorrow. Qualifiers as follows:
    2.20 Run with Pride 10/1 & Foxy Boy 12/1
    2.50 Lean on Pete 9/2
    3.20 Brigadoon 10/1 & Samtu 4/1
    4.50 Princess Way 13/2 & Magic in the Making 6/1
    1pt win

    Good Luck.

    1. OK we’ll settle for 3 wins! With a 15p R4 for Barnaby Brook that leaves us with 9.3pts profit for the day.

  2. Just recently I have been bombarded with emails from a chap called Tosh Laidlaw. Can anyone shed any light on this person? It sounds too good to be true and probably a scam. David

    1. One to avoid. Make Money Forum’s review of his Win Supremacy Service on 4th March says it all. Nothing more than a serial marketeer.

  3. Josh, I wonder what your thoughts are on the significance of the ground next week? Looking at the forecast for the next few days, the likelihood is for soft ground, at least for the Tuesday. To what extent do you think this would influence the ‘winning profile’ of a horse as defined by your stats pack?

    1. Hi Jack,
      Well, it could throw plenty up in the air given how few Festivals are ‘officially’ run on Soft… many of the ‘winning profiles’ look at the horse profiles in terms of number of runs, handicap wins, days since run etc. I’d think they would be similar…but an argument could be made that in softer ground, it is much harder work, more guts/determination/stamina/attitude is required and as such you may not want to put all eggs in the ‘unexposed’ basket. Siding with the odd hardy warrior who is well handicapped on old form may be no bad thing.
      Just one of those, it’s tricky…
      The usual thinking is that the big field (good gallop/properly run race) and Good/Good to Soft, is what drives the total transformation in some horses, who suddenly appear thrown in…having been pottering around in tactical affairs, graded novices, small field, heavy ground, etc… that’s the flip come festival week which sees horses step forward, stamina reserves coming to the fore yet to be seen in a horses career etc.
      Just a case of being more cautious maybe, and I am better at using stats as a guide I think rather than being dogmatic.
      But yep, in general, most of the stats derive from races run on Good/Good to soft.
      Time will tell!
      I’m due a shocker of a year haha, haven’t had one since I started blogging at Festival, 4 now I think.. I’ll get my ground excuses at the ready!! 🙂

      1. I have been to Cheltenham the last 12 years and have seen the going change each day and by lunchtime from what is was in the morning. I have been out there at 8.30 walking the course (there is a place where you can get in from 7 AM on the far side of the course) and the going has been good to soft and then good at lunch time and getting firmer. Therefore unless it rains near or during racing taking place it will dry out. I have often seen watering going on to keep it good. It dries there quickly and so don’t worry about rain unless it is heavy over a prolonged period. Don’t let it mislead you.
