Secondly… I always like to drip feed some stats of interest, especially at this time of year. I’m busy completing my own unique Festival guide which focusses on the handicaps and a few other races of interest. Also included is a look at a few trainers and micro angles of interest.  Below is an angle for JP’s runners in handicaps…
Owner: JP McManus (owner stats only go back to 2013 in HorseRaceBase)
  • Cheltenham Festival
  • Handicap Chase/Hurdle (standard/not novice hncps)
  • Had NOT won on last three starts
  • 15/2 or shorter SP (8/1 + : 0/66, 7p)
15 bets / 5 wins / 10 places (inc wins) / 33% sr / +17 SP / +21 BFSP / AE 2.09 
So, note that down. Whether he has any qualifiers this year we shall see, but if he has a ‘shorty’ in those handicaps they’re clearly worth plenty of attention and he no doubt backs them in, which must be some indication the team think said horse is well handicapped/been the plan etc.
As always, ‘the people’ (trainers /owners /jockeys) are as important as the horses at The Festival in my opinion.
Meanwhile… the Paul Nicholls February micro angle continues to tick along and hopefully plenty of you took note. He fired in a 13.5 BFSP winner at Fontwell on Sunday to keep those ticking over and my members’ ‘monthly trainers’ are now on +162.76 BFSP since the start of September – that does include Paul’s 110/1 BFSP winner of the Betfair hurdle, but even without that it still a solid total, and i’d best get finding a trainer or two to follow in March! It’s been fun so far to £2/£5 stakes which is the level to start at with these.
Hopefully something of interest for you there.
My own annual Festival offer is taking shape – you’ll be able to get full access to my Festival content, including the stats/trends guides, for £9.99 – i’m just finalising that but as with previous years it will be via ClickBank which means you can get a full refund if I didn’t help you enjoy the week! But, more on that later in the week, likely Thursday/next week.
All the best,

  1. Good afternoon all, and where are you GBster?

    Just a couple of interest I though enough of to share with you, small stakes.

    7.00 Sherpa Trail has his first run in a handicap and Ed Walker has got his “I mean business” jock up in Luke Morris. While Ed doesn’t have a completely compeling record with his first time handicappers (17% win) the horse’s sire has a 20% strike rate with his offspring over this type of distance. Saving on Swiss Cheer.

    7.30 Songo is interesting lurking at the foot of the weights and very lightly raced. Cannot avoid the claims of the fav tho so saving on Dyagilev.

    8.30 I’m clinically obsessed with the fact that Champion Brogie must win a race soon so I am not deserting him now back at his last winning mark. Dutching with Waitaki.

    Good luck with all your bets.

  2. Hi Mark, hope you do not mind my view on Ed Walkers Sherpa Trail for he has not mentioned it today so for me would not want to play for the negatives are wide draw in 11 and it is also drifting in the betting, Luke Morris as rode it in both of it runs when winning so he his always a positive, but not for me today.

    Cursing yesterday for on my computer course and could not put up Glorious Caesar SP 5/1 and Ed was sweet about this ones chances so my record remains 0 from 3.

    1. Thanks Colin your advice is always appreciated. I’m sure you will get enough from your computer course to more than make up for missing a few winners 🙂

    Both only out of loyalty like your bogey brogey one ! ??? 🙂
    6.00 ENGLISHMAN = can see Lukey boy giving this one the full nettle bush treatment here tonight ?????
    6.30 CIGOLI = might be a L. Morris night me thinks ??
    7.30 LAUBERHORN ROCKET / PIONEERING = e/w but i have about 5 in this race

    THAT’S IT FOR ME !! …… will follow yours in mr mc .. thanks my punter pal ! 😉

    not worthy !!

  4. Hiya G, yes I looked twice at Englishman, in fine fettle for an old boy, but does he hold any secrets from the handicapper? Mind you, that goes for the rest of the field 🙂

    Good luck anyway.
