What is this blog all about?
PLEASE TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO WATCH MY VIDEO INTRODUCTION/TOUR BELOW>>>>
This blog was created in December 2013 and for the first year or so not many people were reading it. It started as a platform for me to share my thoughts on all things racing – with a focus on ‘tipping’ horses that I fancied.
I, and the blog, have come a long way since those early days. I am a much better punter and the content is much improved. Over 1300 people now read the blog daily, with more at weekends. The blog had a redesign in July 2016.
So, what is on offer?
The heart and soul of this blog is an engaged community of racing enthusiasts who like sharing ideas, having fun and making profits. I would like to think we are all on journey of development and discovery. The ups, the downs, the highs and lows.
The main part of the blog is the ‘Free Daily Posts’ which are comprised of…
During the jumps season I like to focus on 3m+ handicap/graded chases. On the flat I dabble in C2 5-7 furlong handicaps using trends/stats as a starting point.(albeit these are more in ‘test mode’)
In this section I will ‘tip’ horses that I am betting on myself. My standard bet is £20 per point and I will usually tip between 1-3 points.
For every ‘tip’ you will know exactly why I like a horse, who I think the dangers may be and how the race will be run etc. You are left in no doubt why I like something and many readers like this as it allows them to help form their own opinion. Some readers ignore my advice and focus on something I think is a main danger – they usually go on and win! 🙂
I welcome polite disagreement and many readers will comment about a race, why they may agree/disagree and what they themselves may be backing. I back all my tips myself and have confidence in my ability to make a profit long term, as the results so far demonstrate.
MICRO SYSTEMS/JUMPS ANGLES
There are a handful of micro systems (trainer based) that I have researched on the blog and I post the qualifiers in the free daily posts.
Many use the research/qualifiers as a guide to help with their own analysis. How you use them is up to you.
You can always find the research in the FREE REPORTS AND SYSTEMS tab above, and the RESULTS in the Results Tab also.
STATS/ANGLES OF INTEREST
A bit of an experimental section I suppose and don’t go diving in backing them all with your hard earned! I am a big user of HorseRaceBase and Geegeez Gold. Using these tools I will try and find horses of interest that we may wish to have a closer look at. These usually have a ‘way in’ such as the trainer/jocky combo record, the trainer’s record with handicap debutants or generally at the track. I may use ‘pace’ as a way in, or look at course specialists, or those that stands out as being well handicapped and well suited to race conditions.
So, that is the main thrust of the Free Daily Posts. I would like to think there is something for everyone, while at the same time being a few areas that I focus on.
There is always the odd other thing going on as well. I give away plenty of free reports (trainer/stats based) and other content. I will also discuss/share my thoughts on other people’s services that I think you may like to try.
My aim has always been to provide something engaging, interesting, informative and useful.
I want to help you enjoy this sport even more than you may do now. That is why I blog.
There is a growing community and many readers post comments/ask questions/’tip’ horses on a regular basis. (these are always worth a read)
There is always something going on and collectively we are all heading in the right direction.
Everything is open and transparent on here. I publish results on a monthly basis so you can see how well everything is doing.
How you engage with the blog is up to you. I hope you find that it enhances your enjoyment of this great sport of ours.
