  1. Re: Sunday 1st April Flat Racing Looks like I have some of the same horses as a few of you on here so wont bother re-writing the same type of thing! Fingers crossed we have a good day :D
  2. Re: BBotD April 1st Ascot 330 - Clarion Call 8/1 Stan James 1pt Win I think this horse is on a good mark judged on its previous runs and would have won well LTO if he didnt fall at one of the last couple of flights. I have doubts over a couple of the others shorter in the market and this horse has already beaten Creekside who re-opposes today despite being badly hampered. Conditions should suit & whilst this is more competitive than I would have liked, the price represents value in this field IMO.
  3. Ascot 330 – Clarion Call 15/2 2pt Win BetVictor & Orthodox Lad 11/1 1pt Win BetVictor This is a competitive looking race where I think 5 of them have realistic chances. The favourite Lexi’s Boy looks very short for what he has achieved and I imagine anyone backing the horse is hoping for the better ground to bring about more improvement, which I personally wouldn’t be confident of, especially not at the price! Creekside looks an improving type and I think his mark is about right, with the potential of quicker ground possibly helping out. For me though he is a bit quirky and again I
  4. Re: Jumps Racing - Saturday 31st March Finally! Get in!
  5. Re: Saturday 31 March Flat Racing Great shout! Won really well and finally got my first winner of the day on the board!
  6. Re: Jumps Racing - Saturday 31st March Unsurprisingly Henok was disappointing as well. Certainly wasnt form to trust! Need the winner in the lucky last!
  7. Re: Jumps Racing - Saturday 31st March Goldmeister backed but certainly didnt run like a horse that had a few lbs in hand. Doesnt bode well for my Henok bet!
  8. Re: Jumps Racing - Saturday 31st March Not so good so far. Knight In Purple ran well and finished a half length 2nd which is a shame because I thought he had it in the bag and was probably travelling the best all the way round. Fentara hit every hurdle and despite being right in it with a couple of flights to go, was pulled up so something obviously wasnt right. Dont know if she would have beaten the winner but would have had a real good go. Could do with a couple of the other to come in now!
  9. Re: Saturday 31 March Flat Racing DON 315 - Man Of Action 1pt Win @ 16/1 Bet365 & Stevie Thunder 0.5pts EW @ 25/1 Bet365 This race is a minefield, but its one I could help having a look through! I think both of these horses could potentially have a few lbs in hand and if everything falls right then they might have a chance. Man of Action is an interesting one for me as he beat Eton Forever (who is ridiculously RP Spotlight's NAP of the meeting) with quite a lot in hand, and while my selection is worse off at the weights, he had loads in the tank that day and looks the better bet at the
  10. Stratford 355 – Knight In Purple 15/2 Bet365 2pt win In a race where I think a lot of the runners are overrated, I believe my selection has the best chance of running somewhere near to his mark. He is proven over the trip, on the ground and in this class and has the potential to run a big race. Spotlight have him as their NAP of the meeting and while I wouldn’t be that confident I would be very disappointed if he wasn’t right up there. 425 – Goldmeister 5/1 BetVictor 1pt Win The form of this horse’s previous race is standing up pretty well with the 3rd winning off 113 & the
  11. Re: Flat Racing, Friday 30th March 2012 Ended up 3rd but what more annoying as I had the winner as a horse to follow previously but ignored it and it came in at 12/1! :cry
  12. Re: Flat Racing, Friday 30th March 2012 Lingfield 505 - Galicean 9/4 Betvictor I have only looked at one race due to time constraints but Galicean looks a very solid favourite in this contest and the form of his previous win and 2nd looks good. He has had a break since his last run but he was a good 2nd first time out last season so I dont see that being a problem. Its a competitive race with other also looking very unexposed but the form of this one is simply far stronger than the rest.
  13. Re: Flat v Jumps? Jumps for me, I find it much more exciting although thats mainly due to the build up of suspense & hoping that your horses gets a great leap at the last. With the sprints on the flat, you blink and its over and it annoys me how long the break is between each race and if I am at the course I tend to get a little bored. The thing I love about the jumps a lot more than the flat from a betting perspective its that it is much simpler! On the flat there are so many extenuating circumstances such as draw (which isnt consistent), pace, ground, surface, the stalls, traffic &
  14. Re: Jump racing - Sunday 25th March 410 Hexham - La Pantera Rosa 9/2 1pt Win - William Hill This horse is now rated 94 having previously won off a mark of 102 at around todays trip. His recent run suggested a return to form wasnt far away and given the form of the yard I think he has a decent chance of scoring today. The favourite looks very short judged out what hes achieved and while he is less exposed Im not convinced of the form and the rest also have some fairly decent question marks against them.
  15. Re: Flat Racing 24th Winter Derby Day! I didnt understand it myself although Im not complaining! EDIT: Iv only just seen the price you got it at as well! That will teach me to pick all my horses the night before!
  16. Re: Jump racing ~ Saturday 24th March Winner! :D Although had me a little worried the stewards would be involved for a second when he started drifting right! Shame about the R4 that will apply! My other selection was a little dissapointing and never really found much at the finish.
  17. Re: Flat Racing 24th Winter Derby Day! 1 out of the 4 wasnt bad and the race went pretty much as planned and at a very decent price! :D Bit dissapointed with Soorah as the jockey had a chance to get him a bit closer to the pace but instead dropped back to the rear. Made some good ground coming home to finish a close 4/5th but gave the leaders a chance!
  18. Re: Jump racing ~ Saturday 24th March Newbury 240 - Tante Sissi - 8/1 Paddy Power - 1pt Win This is a really tough race to call and I have actually had a few quid on a couple of the runners but this is my main fancy. The form of some of her runs read quite well in this race, especially when I suspect a few of the market leaders will need more of a test to be seen at their best.
  19. Re: Flat Racing 24th Winter Derby Day! I have been shocking in recent weeks on the all weather so I would take anything I say on this with a massive pinch of salt! 225 - Pale Orchid 6/1 Bet365 1pt Win There are question marks over a lot of the other runners, whether it be fitness, trip or general well being. This filly is flying at the moment and whilst this is a rise in class where she might get found out, I still fancy her to put up a bold showing especially with the mares allowance. 255 - Fratelino 12/1 Bet365 2pts EW & Medicean Man 5/1 1pt win Bet365 Fratellino has course form a
  20. Re: Jump racing ~ Saturday 24th March 3.30 Kelso - Shadrack 13/2 Paddy Power - 2pt Win This horse is a proper battler and the form of his previous win in a C3 novice handicap has stood up well with the 2nd place horse coming 2nd off 130 in its last 2 runs (1 of which was a 2l 2nd to Bellvano who won at the festival). Shadrack races off of 127 and should have the benefit of a small break to freshen him up and I think he has a few pounds in hand. He doesnt appear to be ground dependant having won on soft and GF against some market rivals that I think have some questions to answer (Time Out
  21. Re: ATR - Who are we? Hi everyone! I have been lurking around the forums for the last few days so eager to get stuck in and see what everyone has to say that I didnt even notice this thread! To cut a long story short, I only went to my first meeting at Glorious Goodwood and since then I have been hooked and I have gone from having the odd gamble here and there to punting everyday whenever I get time to look at the cards! I am mainly a jumps fan and thats where my profits have stemmed from, although my flat form started to pick up at the end of last season. I border on hopeless on the al
  22. Re: Synchronised ~ Would you run him in the National? I wouldnt purely because it seems any horse which has ran his race in the GC seems to struggle at Aintree. If he turned up then I think I would be a layer as he is likely to be poor value as well.
  23. Re: Saturday 14th April - Race 5 - John Smith's Grand National I did quite well in this last year (backed 4 of the top 5) so I am hoping for a similar result this year! My initial thoughts before I have even looked at the runners properly are that Ballabriggs must have a great chance of at least getting a place and that Chicago Grey may well be one to swerve. My reasoning for the latter is firstly his running style, as by running out the back there is a massive chance of being brought down by a faller infront and I would always want a National horse to be one of those making the running or
  24. Re: Ante Post Bets and Discussion- Flat Thread 2012 Im on Perennial for the Derby. He produced a quick time FTO where he beat some decent horses and I would be surprised if there wasnt a lot more to come.
  25. Re: A Question & Idea Firstly, I would just like to say a brief hello as this is my first post! I think this is a cracking thread and there are some really great ideas and a lot of well reasoned responses. If I am honest, its not often that you get such articulate responses from so many posters in betting forums as the ones I have looked at tend to turn into slanging matches or have several people pretending to be in the know! There is a lot of great content on this site and I wonder is it a case of getting people in thats the problem, or is it getting them to stay (or both!)? I fol
