  6. £20 Daily Challenge - All Welcome

    bank 1264.87 Just noticed a horse that I was considering last night for 'Nap of the Day' ……. actually it was my second choice in the race and I went with my first choice But the horse has drifted massively overnight from about 12/1 to 33/1 so I thought I'd take a punt on it in here as it's too late for Nap of the Day Ling 1.30 - Claudine - 10 pound EW at 33/1

  8. Golden Rules..

    Get to know the tracks Years ago I started keeping notes on all the tracks …… whether they were right-hand, left-hand or straight, sharp or galloping, flat or undulating, uphill finish or 'easy' finish, length of home straight on turning tracks, stiff or yielding fences for chases, long run or short run from last obstacle Unfortunately I no longer have those notes …… but it's all now in my head. Well until I start losing my marbles which probably isn't that far off now. With younger horses who haven't raced much it doesn't add much value because they haven't run enough on different tracks for any pattern to emerge. But once you get to seasoned handicappers you can often see a pattern as to which 'type' of track they perform best at old saying - Horses for Courses

  14. Golden Rules..

    One little aphorism or saying that I read years ago stuck with me Don't try to find the winner of a race, look to see if there's a winner 'in' the race At first sight it's a bit 'Confucius he say...…..' but what it means is to decide what kind of horse should win a race like the one you're looking at and then check the runners to see if any of them fit the bill If none of them fit the bill then don't bet ……… An example might be in a sprint handicap you might think a horse dropping in class, down a few pounds in the weights and returning to it's ideal conditions of track, trip, going from running in less than ideal conditions last time out……. check the entries to see if there's a horse like that in the field. if there isn't one move on to the next race !
  15. UK Horse Racing returns on Wednesday

    Oh that's good
  16. Golden Rules..

    Avoid short priced favourites Obviously they'll win quite often but they'll never win often enough to make a profit I think favourites are nearly always poor value because a lot of punters are naturally drawn to 'the favourite' regardless of it's chance of winning ……. it's human nature ! so the favourite not only carries money which reflects it's chance but also extra money merely by being 'favourite' and that extra money doesn't reflect the horses chance actually I'm brim full of golden rules …. some of which are probably contradictory !
  17. Racing Chat - Monday Feb 11th

    If this drags on I wonder if the Irish might consider putting on extra meetings at Dundalk on days when there are no scheduled Jumps I'm sure the bookies would be pretty keen to sponsor races !

  22. I'm up early this morning and just seen the news that all UK racing today (Thursday) has been abandoned following an outbreak of Equine Flu Have to see how this one develops …… Apparently the outbreak was confirmed at a yard that had runners on Wednesday at Ludlow and Ayr and the fear is that the airborne infection could have spread to other horses at the two meetings and then back to their respective yards

    Wolves have decided to call off their Saturday meeting
