NOTES

4.15 Fontwell – Hit The Highway – 7/1 (gen) 2nd 6/1

*no excuse there… a horse without a trip! You could see TC wanted to make plenty of use of him…they have bumped into one there, happy how the eyes have worked on that race, as per notes below/video I thought he had the most intriguing profile , alas no 41/1 forecast here! Hit The Highway has given me a run for my money, just one better on the day, the rest finishing in a bit of a heap. 

Video is below… but for those who don’t want to watch that… 

The horse is lightly raced for his age/3rd start for trainer/promise LTO- best run in a while, they all bumped into a Henderson hot-pot there/doing something different – drop in trip + heavy ground / races prominently / looks like a relentless galloper / would have won at Warwick in Nov but for unseat at last- that was off 122, 115 here- he is getting to a mark he should be competitive off / some decent maiden/novice hurdle form back in the day – he has ability / yard’s horses going fine, 1/10,4p last 14 days / shows up well on geegeez ‘instant expert’ / in an open enough looking race 7s seemed worth a go, just tempting me in/ Dangers…the race may revolve around that Chepstow race…Norse Legend/Great Tempo/Cameron De Chaillac – Norman The Red has the most intriguing profile in this, big run from him wouldn’t shock me.

video… 12 mins…

Aintree GN Meeting 2018: Handicap Hurdle Report

READ HERE>>>

This stats/trends report just looks at the three handicap hurdles that are run at the meeting. I think all handicap hurdles stats shortlist + any tips may just be kept in the Members’ posts, as I’ve decided I don’t want all content to be accessible for free – not as a means of driving people this way but more a recognition to those of you here… the handicap hurdle content may not be much of a bonus but time will tell! I did tip Rather Be at 16s last year, so here’s hoping.

Results, Thoughts…

Not too much to say although the ‘an exciting future’ angles detailed in the jumps strategies link in the Key continue to be exciting, and possibly may have a future! So, there’s something 🙂 

What could be called S2A (maybe I’ill start using that for Jumps Quals) is starting to take shape, although still early days…

Rules: Qualifies in Section 1,  16/1 – 25/1 (on morning prices- those that I enter next to the horse)

2018-

• Win only (1 point win): 3/40,10p, +34 , +65 (BFSP)
• Each Way (1/2 point EW): 3/40,10p, +27
• Each Way (1pt EW): 3/40,10p, +55

Henri Parry Morgan... I probably made a cock-up with him.. on the Sunday I was late posting and should have used prices available around 9-10am, as I would normally do at weekends (I consistently update prices around 8am on Mon-Fri)..as such he would have been put in as an ‘S2A’ qualifier as his price was 16s-20s. He was 33s when I posted, the first winner in Section 1 since I started the jumps stats to have a ‘morning price’ (those i enter next to horse) bigger than 25/1. Anyway, there are more positives there than negatives and I didn’t have a penny on – you have to get used to missed winners in this game. But that would have boosted those results further. Anyway, it would be great if they could continue in that vein forever more. Remember as with any strategy you don’t have to wait for me to post prices and the S next to their name, I know many of you bet in the evening and everything evens out over time. There have been a few S1 + S5 winners on evening prices that I know a few of you have backed, that were not qualifiers in the morning as they had shortened etc. That’s how it goes, I try and be consistent with morning prices which I use for a variety of reasons.

The Flat.. elsewhere those strategies have had some minor success to date and i’ve been pleased with how the qualifiers have been running in general with winners for S4 and S6, the latter  of which I hope cements itself as the flagship strategy.

  1. Try Catch Me 4:50 Fontwell
    Ew 25s
    Old timer but likes Fontwell
    Could fall out the back of the tv but I’m willing to chance it in a weak field.

      1. Good luck Darren, you’ve got the price- looks a very winnable race. Can see why you had a nibble at those odds, if he could rediscover any of his old form. Yard have been going well all year, a small team to follow.

  2. 2.05 Fontwell, Be Daring 7/2 1 point win which for me equates to £20

    looks to have a great chance with the drop back in distance and heavy going sure to suit.
    I just hope he is not held up too far out the back as it can be hard to make the ground up in a bog.

    Harry Reed rides for Chris Gordon and when they team up 27/7 wins/16 places +29
    and on heavy going 10/4 wins/8 places +21 and ew +27.73

    1. Be Daring ran well and come to win his race but ran into one there, beat the rest comfortably but still it’s -1 point
      As Josh has asked I will keep a record/running total of all the selections I post on here from now going forward.

      1. Cheers Chris, no need for it to be a running total, but period updates will be great and much appreciated , as are the write ups, regardless of result. I get the impression Be Daring is a bit of a monkey but I didn’t watch the race, he needs an awful lot to fall right I think, which it will do one day no doubt.

  3. KNIGHT IN ARMOUR 6:40 CHELMSFORD
    Another horse that on paper hasn’t done a lot but it is the best bred horse in the race.
    Had been running over 7,8,9,f. Breeding suggests he needs further so the 1m2f maybe the key. Doing something different.
    6/1 in a small field looks generous to me. Gonna have nibble and find out.

  4. Jack Nevison Chelmsford City Friday 20:45 1.5pt win 11/2
    Aguerooo Lingfield Friday 17:05 1pt e/w 15/2

  5. Think Colin L
    That you had it right Yesterday .
    ‘re Studying Form ( Lots of Folk will Disagree) 20/30 Minutes Tops Nowadays . With a few Qualifying rules to Strike a Bet .
    Can well remember Going to Kings Cross Stations to Pick up the Sporting life at Midnight and Burning The Night oil. Studying. Have to say that however Much form Coverage the Racing Post offers can Never Get on with it.
    The of a Certain Age will also remember Thursday’s when the Sporting Chronicle Handicap Book/Paper Came Out.
    Equally Monthly Sporting Investor Monthly .
    Form wise Though Study as Much as You like But it seems to Me That if the Trainer Doesn’t want a Win . It won’t win. Regardless of Form. so Time Wasted
    That’s not to say I don’t appreciate the Stats that Josh Compiles. Wouldn’t be a member Otherwise but it’s not the Basis of My Strategy. Unless happens to be My Pick .
    Got to Give Josh all Credit for his Form Study over The Cheltenham Period . Great Stuff
    and Good Profit Made. Maybe There is Something to it after All. R

    1. Hi Richard
      Not many will agree however not using form i am winning and my AW bets are proven to you all,take yesterday on the free site someone new best over the 3 bets in one race said that he would leave alone not enough profit if one won so he would back the two in the evening which both ran 2nd so he lost £20 on the day however those who backed all 5 bets would have made a profit of £5 not a bad profit of 10% on the day.
      FORM sure that it works on Group 1,2,3 or the top class races for the owner’s are wealthy and they want to win the Derby for the prestige rather than the prize money,but who of us will have the discipline to wait and back in these races would imagine not many,when you go down the grades then the trainer as to manipulate the rules in his favor to stay in business by beating the handicapper and having a punt.
      JOSH has been having great success at Cheltenham etc and maybe he would produce less bets and more profit concentrating on Grade 1 and some Grade 2 courses any chance of you checking this on your past results if possible Josh.

      PS Richard when young and in the forces passing through Kings Cross station used to be more on offer than the Sporting Life! ha ha

      1. I think when it comes to horse racing there are many ways to skin a cat and each of us are good at certain things. I am not good enough to design a system based on just stats which works but I am good enough to follow form among others things regardless of class where as others are less capable. SP2A certainly do better at the lower class level than most. Plus no real wrong opinion in this game which makes it so much fun.

        1. Good discussion gents…
          In terms of my recent form/the Festival.. I would say that it has nothing to do with ‘form’ analysis! I am not a ‘form’ punter – whatever that is – rather subjective? When we say ‘form’ do we mean collateral form/weights measures/this horse beat this horse back in the last leap year, it’s now thrown in/ etc- I assume so- that’s not my approach and never has been (i can be a tad too dismissive of the ‘form/weights+ratings’ approach though, but in general it’s not for me, certainly not in Festival type handicaps…for Mon-Friday I probably should take more note!)… although Nick’s excellent use of ‘hot form’ shows the strength of using that info..BUT.. big races/Festival races are very different and I don’t think I have considered collateral form once in the last 20 days..it’s irrelevant in a Festival handicap, to me anyway – many more important factors and i’d hope my approach to that week in particular is clear by now – race stats/trends profile as starting point / further underlying stats related to trainers/jockeys/owners/ and then a fixation on the horse ‘profile’ (not ‘form)- generally looking at unexposed horses doing something different, that may have been pottering around in graded novices/or with big field maiden ‘form’ (but not that sort of ‘form’!) – ie just evidence they may handle/appreciate certain conditions/may improve for them/hidden class – and with Chasers.. more emphasis on those with a decent recent run.. being ‘in form’ .. and any Cheltenham ‘form’ + pace/prominent racers.
          All of that just mentioned, esp in those big competitive C2/G3 handicap hurdles is far more important than a traditional assessment of the strengths of collateral ‘form’ and/or weights/ratings.

          Colin.. nope I don’t have such records… i don’t think it’s the type of track, just more the race type – which clearly mainly happen at GA tracks! But a festival handicap, or a big field ‘Saturday’ handicap are a unique set of conditions that I appear to be well tuned in to, well, on recent evidence and previous Festival weeks anyway, as with everything above.
          Josh

          1. What is ‘Form’? It can take many forms and seems with most punters to have a recency bias. I understand that as it is what the horse or the trainer has done recently. It can be course form or going left to right handed etc etc. I know that I am being obtuse but what is someone setting out to do? Hopefully it is picking a horse in a race that at the price has a reasonable chance to win or at lest place. That should be it.
            So how do you do that? It cannot be about studying form for hours or running it through a software programme, as if it was it would have been cracked and solved long long ago. I think the best approach is what Josh and some other tipsters/gurus do and that is think about the runners in a particular race, consider their chances, look at the prices for value and try to come up with something that is worth a bet? Dont forget that you do not have to have a bet as there will be more races later/tomorrow.
            Another important factor is why you bet and what your stakes are? Fun betting is different from serious betting and attitudes and approach do change accordingly.

      2. Ah Yes Maybe a quick Rub down with The Sporting Life.
        All Changed Now and Maybe not for the Better.
        Thanks for Comments, Yes agree the Classier races Generally run Truer . Think Timeform used to advertise Better Top Two results in Race worth more than 40 Grand to the Winner Some Years ago .
        Although Their Adverts pretty Selective Top 2 May be 5 Horses as you probably know . Then Would pick out Certain Comments . Not for Me
        I also used to Pop up to Raceform Bookshop in Mayfair for Weekly Parts of Form Book .
        Another Place for the Forces, ?
        Good Luck with your selections
        Hopefully will Start Posting Mine for Flat from May 1st.

  6. well there has been one positive from the lack of racing i have at least had time to update all results and i must admit it is very nice reading. these results are net minus all subscriptions (sp2a paid 6 months in advance) so pure profit.
    starting bank 2000
    bank now 3300
    open bets 35
    withdrawn 400
    net profit 1735 a fraction under 85% 🙂
    at least 80% of the profit is down to Josh and sp2a so once again a big thank you to Josh for all his hard work and for pointing me towards sp2a long may it continue as the wife has her eye on some of the money (we could really do with a new fence couldn’t you pay for it out of your winnings :-0)

    1. That will be some fence Martin!! 🙂 Well done. Is that just for 2018?? Or this jumps season? either way, ticking along nicely. Fun + some decent profits for sensible stakes, to spend on the odd luxury, or fence!
      Josh

    2. Hi Martin,

      Just to save me looking through your old posts which systems are your figures based on? Obviously SP2A but which parts of Josh’s and are there any others?

      Thanks

      Ben

  7. One thing I have learned from this site is in a handicap most horses can win it’s about digging out the various angles and you guys do it so well a big thank you to the guys who put their info up for free hope you continue

  8. Josh,

    Something to add on 3m0.5f hurdle since the Sandown stats piqued my interest. If you concentrate on horses which ran in the Grade 3 novice 2m4f Grade 3 hurdle on Imperial Cup day in the last 11 years (always packed full of quality horses) that record improves to 4/5. Ironically the one who didn’t win was Many Clouds.

    1. Noted 🙂 Although keep an eye on them also, looks like any such qualifiers may be in automatic backing territory as plenty of logic there.
      Josh

  9. Hi Josh
    I’m off to Carlisle this Sunday. Can you do a through the card for me please?
    Never been before looking forward to it.

    1. Hi Darren,
      Possibly! 🙂 It’s a weekend and a Sunday at that haha. I am down in London all day Sat visiting friends, but will be back in time for MOTD – and I don’t think i’ll be out after, so every chance i’ll be fresh enough Sunday morning! Do remind me on Sunday’s post, and i’ll try and have a look.
      Josh

  10. Josh, I was talking with a fledgling tipster who I follow (but do not back his selections) for free yesterday. He is not going that well and so we chat about his selections and why he selected them? The other day he tipped Blessed to Express (have I got the name right?) and I told him what you had said about the horse needing the run etc. Anyway you were correct on the day. However he does rate the horse and has seen it run live previously and is expecting the horse to progress this season. I have not known him that long but he does come from a horsey background and so may know what a decent horse looks like?
    Anyway, just thought I would pass it on.

    1. Well she did need it, but got worked up before the start (again!) and missed the kick again/slow away (which can be her but also part race rustiness I think). She looked outpaced also, so will be trying 6 soon I think.
      Fitness…well, my trainer was correct on the day 🙂
      She is very small with not too much scope, so won’t be progressing in terms of size, but she has strengthened up and enjoyed her much needed break. Added muscle and hopefully mental/race maturity will see progress.
      I don’t know what said tipster bases his bets on but if it is part on looks/paddock watching, then i would hope he knows what a decent horse looks like!! he’s a big stuffed if he doesnt, and that is his approach.
      She is handicapped to win, she is better than her current mark, just a case of all the pieces falling into place for her, from pre race, her break, and all the way through.
      Lemos (Amys BF/stable jock for flat horses unless owner preference) has been injured but is back now and he know’s her very well, won on her 1st time up, so hopefully his magic hands can do the trick.
      Josh

  11. The other problem with “Form” is knowing which horses are there trying to win & which horses are there for “other reasons”. At least at the big meetings you can be fairly sure that all horses are there to do their best. As an owner in the past (not now, I hasten to add Colin!) I know for a fact that some horses are put into races for “other reasons” than to try & win. As a full time punter now trying to make a living from the sport nothing is more frustrating than to bet on a horse on “form” only to see it perform well below expectations for a variety of reasons. It’s obvious to all that it was not a “going” day for that particular horse – proving it is a different matter!!

    1. Hmm, i don’t prescribe to all this cloaks and daggers stuff really – well, my starting point is that there are enough horses there to run their race in any given day etc that there is no excuse for us not to do well long term.
      Often there is a very valid excuse for why a horse doesn’t run their race/performed on the day – and there are so many reasons, inc many we can’t see/don’t know about. The stewards reports can be useful in that regard and i need to get in habit of reading them more as they are probably a good source of notebook horses!
      It’s out job to work out which horses are both a) suited to conditions or b) may improve for them c) why they should run their race today…and also to think about reasons they may not.
      That’s handicapping really – it’s up to us to see why horses may be running in far from ideal conditions for the purpose of either experience/getting to peak fitness/getting handicap marks down etc (there is nothing wrong with running horses to get handicap marks down – you have to if they reach their ceiling otherwise they will never win again, when you are talking about exposed middle of the road handicappers – they can still run on their merits, but just not be suited by conditions, or whatever)

      I don’t thin a sceptical approach is healthy or useful with horse racing but I may be in the naive minority on that front! I am probably too influenced by morons on twitter who i’m sure think the game is 90% bent, which in my view is rubbish.

      Clearly there is the odd bit of skulduggery but it is a sport that involved human beings and that’s the case for all sports/politics/finance etc. Well, life. I don’t think about such things really – but if we can spot those who you think are there for ‘other reasons’ then we can profit from them in future. The old classic of going too hard up front (but that’s hard to get away with and can be obviously suspicious!) or burying out the back- which can be dodgy especially if horse is actually tuned up- and jockey ‘runs into other horses’ – clearly that happens every now and then but no point worry about it- only worth focusing on such types for the future.
      It would help with C4-7 stuff, esp AW, if the prize money was increased.

      It’s a numbers game, if you play the odds we will only be right 8-25% or time really, depending on odds range etc you play at. But that’s enough.

      For the purposes of this discussion I think it’s best to think of ‘form’ as collateral form/who they have run against/how races have worked out/whether on that basis they are ‘well handicapped’
      everything else is what I would call ‘profiling’ ie – do they only run well RH.

      I mean you’re a pretty crap trainer if you’ve got a horse to peak for a race you don’t want it to run well in! To the point where it’s just too obvious as horse in effect has to be stopped from running it’s race, which is pretty hard to cover up- and on odd time it does happen can be so obvious. Not that I can think of many examples off the top of my head.

      Ah, that’s a can of worms that has just been unleashed 🙂 …

    2. Hi Phil
      Knew a trainer some years ago who would run his HC chasers after winning a race over 2 miles he would then run them over 2 1/2 mile knowing that they would not stay and then after 4 or 5 races they would have dropped down the HC and be running over 2 miles again and 4 or 5 zero’s to its name would be 20/1 plus but would it run a race.
      The form was there but after seeing 4 or 5 zeros against it name how many would go that far back in its racing history?

      1. …yep but that’s an obvious one isn’t it, and there for all to see if you can be bothered to do the work? I should think plenty do that when they deem the horse too high in the handicap and that’s fine, all out in the open… you judge the horse is a 2 miler, as all his form indicates, and then runs X times over 2 1/2 when obviously runs his race but just doesn’t get home- up to us to wade in when dropping to 2 mile again. That happens every day to some degree, esp with exposed horses ‘doing something different’
        It’s not the fault of connections if punters are too lazy to do a bit of work 🙂 I mean if his last win was over 2m (all winning form over 2m) and his last 5 runs all over 2m4f, all with 0s… and you can’t join the dots when he is then dropped back to 2m, then you don’t deserve to do well in this game do you? Many will carp ‘oh he was out of ‘form’ ‘ – well yea, in far from ideal conditions. That is the game. And why it’s so much fun/engaging.

        (all in the context of that sort of profiling being just one way to attack the game…but as with your AW approach, and my various methods, there are many other ways, esp as a ‘way in’ to try and find those types)

  12. I agree that the sport is mostly honest & getting a horse back down to a sensible handicap is a big problem. I’m almost certainly jaundiced by a few recent poor results where the horses concerned have come out of the stalls near the back of the field without any real chance of making up the lost ground on horses ahead of them who, on “form”, they should be mullering!

    It’s all part of the game spotting those trainers who run horses over too short a distance to get them a handicap & then suddenly upping the distance & doing surprisingly well! Or vice versa. There are all sorts of these kinds of things going on all the time & after a while you tend to get to know what’s what. But that’s why, to my mind, “form” is a combination of all of these factors.

    1. yep agree with all that – esp the start/in the stalls.
      If i take my horse, Blessed To Empress…she just likes sitting down just as the gates open! has done it with three diff jocks now I think/slow away. Now if there was a gamble, or she was short and drifted for some reason, some would automatically assume it was deliberate! Starting slow in the gates is a tricky one, no doubt a skilled jockey can ‘ensure’ a tardy start if needs must- but again, if the horse has suffered from a slow start but still ran well/found trouble etc, that’s another ‘way in’ for future. Keep the faith with those recent reversals as i’m sure they’ll be profitable for you at some point!
      The great game. Often giving us headaches.
      i do think too many punters (not on here mind) are certainly nearer the top end of the ‘it’s all bent’ scale!
      Yep agree, that view of form is certainly about taking all such factors together, to try and work out if the horse in front of you is a bigger price than they should be.

    1. Hi Steve,
      Sp2a…arguably the best all round tipping service (daily/big races/low grade/all codes etc), if not best tipping service full stop, I have come across… one of my members put them onto me/my readers over last summer and after a few discussions we did a special 3 month trial for RTP readers/members, 50% off, money back at end if no profit to advised stakes/SP in the period. We ran the first trial from Oct-Dec and the second one is about to end. I don’t know when the third one will be, but you can join the waiting list here if you so wish…

      I don’t class myself as a tipping service and what I do is very different. many of my members have joined and find it compliments, many have joined who are not members, and some were members but preferred a tipping service so left here and joined them instead- which I don’t mind. Clearly it’s affiliated and as i’ve always said, there is a decent service out there for everyone.

      It is a very unique model for a tipping service- most are just one man/woman who naturally dip in and out of form- Ian monitors many tipsters exclusively to him, and perms the best tips per day, 3 on average, and he tips himself. It allows him to focus on those in form/with certain specialities etc. They have maintained a 20% ROI to SP since launch 7 years ago or so, which is just mad. If you can make profit to SP, as Colin does with his AW tips, you won’t really go wrong! I think i have advised readers to take a look at 6 ‘tipping’ services since I started the blog and they are by far the best, in terms of a complete package. I’m yet to see better myself.

      Hope that helps,

        1. oh Ian will no doubt yea, it’s his service, the first one Oct-Dec made +350 points to 1 point EW from memory, I forget what it was to advised stakes. I don’t think this 3 month block has hit those heady heights but has still be profitable. I’ll use such results in any further promo if/when Ian allows any more members, which he may not, depends how many stay after this trial possibly.

  13. Just one from me today – 2.05 FP, Gunslinger 1 point each way at 7/1. A poor race but the trainer likes the course and the horse is on a low mark. April -10 points (£100).

  14. Bloody nice to see Fontwell basking in sunshine! Well any turf course for that matter. Its been awhile.

    Had Goldslinger ew. Never saw anything in Hollywood Ken to attract my attention…..hmmm
