NONE…i’ll take the day off… i’m not sure I can even make an educated guess at the going…Ponte is still GF but it’s raining now and expected to continue through to the afternoon…they haven’t watered since Wednesday so it may soak up plenty…so it could ride well still, or be soft+ and everything in between. I won’t bother. It’s also raining at Uttoxeter but only ‘light’ apparently, currently good, good to soft in places. I have no idea what that going will be come race time, on watered ground. Who knows. I’ll just leave it today and a blank Sunday for the racing brain before next week isn’t a bad thing.

4.Any general messages/updates etc

Jamie Osborne

After BC tipped up his 16/1 winner of the last at Ascot (was a section 1 qual,but sadly not a strategy qual and in truth I was nowhere near tipping him…but the yard was hot,unexposed on turf,1st headgear), I did take a look at his record with first time headgear…

So for the last 10 years, + 2018 to date…

  • All runners 1st time headgear: 132 / 17 wins / 37p / 13% sr / +7 SP / +30 BFSP / AE 0.97
    • Blinkers: 2/58,14p, -30
    • Visor: 0/7,0p
    • Hood: 3/6,3p, +12
    • Hood + Blinkers: 2/8,3p, +42
    • Cheekpieces: 10/53,16p,…+6…+14 BFSP

If I just focus on class 5 or 6 races, 1st time Cheekpieces or Hood: 42 bets / 12 wins / 14p / 29% sr / +30 SP / +40 BFSP / AE 1.73

(that’s before today’s winner)

Do with that as you please.



Nigel Tinkler

I’ve probably missed the boat this season but i’ve had a few trainers saved in HRB for a while who have historically done well in Flat Turf Handicaps, for 3 year olds only (3YO)

I’ve noticed he’s had a few winners recently. His runners in such races (3YO only handicaps on the turf) since the start of 2013, sent off 11/1 or shorter SP

106 bets / 35 wins / 53p / 33% win SR / +99 SP / +118 BFSP / AE 1.78

  • 12/1>20/1: 3/49,11p, +28 BFSP
  • 22/1+ : 0/49,3p

He is 12/46,14p, +45 BFSP so far in 2018… (insert expletive here)

    Well done with your Thru the card at Ascot today. Had some small change on them to help a with a good day finished of with C of C.
    A friend of mine who has been doing the horses for more years that I can remember but has no IT whatsoever but has advised me to follow Sir Mark Prescott at this time of year and towards the autumn especially with his outsiders.
    Could you have a look at your HRB to see if there is any merit in what he says.

    Cheers for all your work and what a great site.

    One qualifier for Sunday

    Daniel Tudhope (Pontefract)
    4.35 Extra Large 6/1

    NTF Summer Stunners
    4.35 Ponte – Vosne Romanee 4/1 (PP/BF) 7/2 generally.
    Goes for the hat-trick but steps up in Class from C3 to C2 which doesn’t quite fit the recommendation.

    1. Vosnee’s latest win was actually in a Class 2 Ken, but I think today looks a stronger contest.

  4. Re C of C I noted the drop in trip and the switch to a straight track as other likely causes of improvement. A careful jockey booking too. JO tried to keep this one quiet but they were on.

    1. any positive angle before the race starts is always a good starting point 🙂
      gl again today 🙂

    2. hmm, yes, in hindsight as I look back that was clearly more of a decent poke than I gave credit for. Some decent AW form, still open to progress esp on turf- only run to date at Sandown after a break, had been running well- hampered the last day, this was a slight drop in class also into a lesser C3, down in trip, first run straight track as you say, headgear, a track where you can just back his runners blind, and topped off with jockey booking. Oh and the yard was ‘in form’. Damn! Much to ponder there, sounds like you had a go which is the main thing.

  5. Interested to see Loch Linnhe hit a number of stats in the 5.20. I had already backed him on the basis of his trainer having won this race twice in the last 10 years from two runners. He seems to prefer the softer ground he’ll get today and trainer had a winner yesterday. Looks good value at 16. 4 places with Sky.

  6. Just wondering if josh’s box of tricks could put my mind at rest on headgear for the trainer Gay Kelleway……… she has one today in blinkers ………. but my hunch and memory is that it is only when she applies the visor for the first time ….. that bells need to start ringing in my head ??

    looks like a no bet today for me ..unless i try a appleby/sds doubles and trebles on all the front runners they have today ???
    gl all

    1. Yep, I think I touched on that briefly at some point in the distant past, but didn’t think much of it…I probably should have…
      last 10 years, GK with 1st time visor… 11/53,19p, +99 SP, +146 BFSP
      -Outside of handicaps, 7/27,12p, +83

      IF you just focused on those with 0-1 career win (so logically still unexposed/yet to take advantage of their mark,and less likely to be an older regressive horse,where you’re just trying everything you can think of…and also, Visor a bit more friendly, scares you more than CP, but not as much as blinkers- which can just make young horses boil over say/do too much/not work at all…so some logic why visor would work best and she clearly knows when to apply it/race types etc)…

      so 1st visor, 0-1 win in career to date… all race types/codes… 10/36,15p, +114, +160 BFSP
      5/11,6p, +100 since start of 2017.


      p.s yep not much doing for other headgear, esp blinkers 1st time, visor is the place to focus, systematically at least, albeit she has odd winner with other headgear.

          1. yep, i have Osborne and the Kellaway one saved, so no reason can’t post up in test zone as and when. Wont be many quals but usually a nice price, as often horse appears out of form etc I suspect.

      1. booooom !!!! trebles and yankee and acca !!! 🙂 easy like a sunday morning 🙂

        hope a few followed me with some shrapnel on them 🙂 .. seemed the only fun bet for me today ………….. 🙂

        as we say over here on y va !!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

        gl :
        mr c 🙂

        1. Where have you been all this time Brian haha. Your first two ‘tipping’ comments/musings, appear to have gone rather well! Well done. Sadly I wasn’t as wise as yourself or Max, and didn’t have a penny on. Suddenly my day out paintballing appears rather more expensive than it could have done haha. Top work. And we will all owe you a drink when Osborne and GK mop up in future with 1st time headgear runners also!


    5.10 Pontefract Musharrif

    Cannot for the life of me really believe that Pontefract is GD/FIRM for Sheffield is approx 50 miles away and we are having very heavy rain.
    Musharrif’s last win was on GD/Soft in the same class and is well drawn,also won on GD/Firm,so for me worth a bet.

    1. tricky Colin, I have no idea how well it drains in truth! They haven’t watered since Wed, and most tracks can put on up to 5mm I thin to maintain decent going when hot, and they are forecast 10mm today, to clear up by racing. So, it may not be that bad/going will be good at worse, or it doesn’t drain that well and will ride on soft side/water may seep to inside and be a bias, or they get more than expected and softer! I suppose you can make educated guesses at the price but I for one couldn’t be bothered. Best of luck.

    2. I know ground conditions do matter a lot to some horses but I think that it is overstated whatever you read or listen to. I hear pundits on TV or on numerous podcasts I wade through talk about what may happen if it rains a bit etc. On the flat and the amounts of rain we get in the summer generally I think it makes minimal difference. If it is genuinely soft after much rain then fair enough. Just my thoughts and it is even raining in Kent at present!

      1. Cracksman on saturday did not run in the King George because of the fast ground,the race that it had been trained for all season,Gosden knew that it would not do itself justice on those conditions,thankfully the connections pulled it out saving punters losing their cash,on the day.
        Clerk’s of the courses do not want to advertise GD/Soft going early for they know many trainers will not turn up with their horses and the course will lose money on the public not turning up along with food and drink sales will be down.
        Trainers have traveled from Lambourn to Pontefract with their horse,cost of diesel along with 2 stable staff time and wages not forgetting the fee for running,and possibly the owners taking the day off work, they tend to run the horse even though they know the horse does not handle the conditions,so it is an
        exercise gallop in reality.
        My first port of call is to see if the horse that i am thinking of backing handles the going,and in most cases that it has won on it in the past,my opinion is that the going is the most important factor before contemplating having a bet,along with other factors.

        1. At this time of year the ‘change in going’ is usually very minimal I think. And how do you know what the going is until you watch the first race? The stick plungers are just giving an opinion based upon how deep it goes in the earth. As has been said before here, you cannot trust the stick. Cracksman was never going to run. Oppenheimer is Chairman of De Beers and so can afford a day out for the horse. I wonder if they had a test with the horse in the stable area to see how he played up or not after last time? With Frankie missing as well. It would have been interesting if Cracksman had run though. The Arc will be more up his street.
