  1. Thanks so much for the help lads. Really good feedback. Im going to give it a go and see how my luck is 🙏
  2. I have posted this on other forums and this is by far the most useful post so thank you. So if I increase the number of runners - I could include the 3.20 today at haydock for example. Would that be advisable if I went down the handicap route? Also, would you look to include all weather or just turf? Is that a useful thing to do or would it over complicate things for me further. ? finally , you mentioned that listed and group races are good over this distance if I am happy to bet at a weekend. My understanding is that it’s much harder to find an edge at the high level and studying form is tougher there? Would you agree? My idea scenario if I’m honest is that o become an not of a specialist in a small area where I maybe place just a couple of bets per week - maybe 5 at the most. Rather than betting every day. Thanks again realy helpful
  3. Morning. I am thinking about specialising in a particular subset of racing and I’d like to get some feedback on my chosen criteria. Basically I’m recreational and o don’t want to get bogged down with complex systems etc at this point. What I’d like to do is focus on an area that interests me and try to become a bit of a specialist in that area. My chosen criteria is as follows distance 1m to 1m4f class 3 and above 5-10 runners all ages handicaps. so my questions are should i include listed and group races or would that increase the information to a point where it would be hard to handle. I’m trying to keep scrolling through form to a min Is all ages a good idea or should o reduce further to say just 2yo or 3yo etc If I stick to handicaps above C3 are there enough c3,2,1 handicap races each week to have betting opportunities? Any other feedback back would be welcome. Im looking for a small easy to manage easy to keep on top of and easy to follow horses with out spending hours per day or getting over whelmed. cheers
