We’re fans of ‘preferences’ here at the Race Advisor. There’s barely a week that goes by where we’re not talking about a horse’s preference for something. But… what about trainer preferences?

[Free Tip Inside] Nottingham Trainers

Here at the Race Advisor we’re always discussing which is the best way to find selections. One thing all of us agree on, is that trainers can be an excellent way to find winners that the majority of punters miss.

Rhododendron Can Gain Revenge In The Oaks

The Oaks

Rhododendron was one of the unluckiest 1000 Guineas runner-ups in history at Newmarket earlier this month where she was held up in running, ultimately losing all her momentum at an important point in the race.
