    The King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes 2019

So read on for a few words on the upcoming event, with consideration of last year’s race, and broader trends taken into account. Waxing Poetic Poet’s Word,…

    Horse Racing Bankroll

    4 Steps To The Perfect Horse Racing Bankroll

    Your bankroll is going to be one of the most important parts of your horse racing betting. If you have a bankroll that’s too small, you’re going to lose it during a bad streak and not have enough left to bet to see you through that bad streak and back out the other side. If you have a bankroll that’s…

Finding the right angle for your mindset, bankroll and available time is probably the most important element of successful betting. Which is why I like to make monthly strategy videos for Race Advisor Pro Member Club members on how to use our software. One of…

    Inside The Rails 3

    Inside The Rails

    How many times do we see stories in the racing press relating to high profile horses missing a big race target due to a minor injury or niggle, and how often do we read about horses that will miss the rest of the season through injury? I am sure you will realise that this happens all the time, and these…

    Royal Ascot Highlights 4

    Royal Ascot Highlights

    Royal Ascot is over for another year. A strange meeting, a bit like this year’s Cheltenham Festival, it was a slow burner. The first two days took place under grey skies and torrential rain. There were no highlights off the track, and in all honesty, there weren’t many of them on the track either. Blue Points to Win On Tuesday…

    Rough Magic

    One of the beauties of being able to read books about the “sport of kings” is that we constantly learn new things! At the end of every month, I treat myself to a special half to sit down with a cup of tea and peruse Amazon’s book section. I can see why it’s called Amazon, thinking about it… “The Amazon is the…

    The 4 Steps To Finding Winners Nobody Wants To Tell You 8

    The 4 Steps To Finding Winners Nobody Wants To Tell You

    Wouldn’t it be great if all we needed to be profitable was a single rating, we always bet the top selected and counted our money. Over a decade ago, that was what I thought would happen. Which is why I completely understand when people ask me which of our ratings will make them a flat stake profit by betting the…

    Liberty Set for Royal Ascot

What a difference a week can make… Granted there was no lack of racing around the country. But it wasn’t the strongest summer Saturday in terms of quality. Even worse, the weather was more…

    In this week’s article I look back at the Derby & Oaks, and some interesting stats for those punting at Brighton. We’ve had four of the five English Classics already run, and the flat season is just two months old! Frankie’s Famous Five My decision to look at bigger priced horses in the Oaks meant I didn’t back Anapurna who…

    Proven Stayers Required for the 2019 Ascot Gold Cup

    The word ‘stamina’ is often used by both pundits and experts who are tasked with analysing a horse’s chances of success, and although it is just one of many aspects to consider when studying the form lines, it is surely the most important. There are a smattering of UK flat races throughout the summer months that require proven stayers, and…

Today I will be concentrating on previewing both next week’s Classics. I have to say both races have an open look about them. Let’s begin…

    Derby Picture Gets Clearer or Does It?

    It’s Monday again and my weekly look back at the best of last week’s action. On Saturday it was Lockinge Day at Newbury, and whilst there was some high-class racing at the Berkshire track, the rest of weekend’s racing was only moderate. That being the case, I thought it was a good time to look back at last week’s York…

    Lingfield Hosts Derby & Oaks Trials

    It’s Monday again and my weekly look back at the best of last weekend’s action. On Saturday it was Derby & Oaks Trials Day at Lingfield. The track is like Epsom, although overall, it’s a much sharper track. However, the conventional wisdom of most racing pundits is if a horse handles Lingfield it should be able to handle Epsom. Well…

    The Flat is Definitely Back!

    There’s no doubt the flat season is with us now. I’m writing this just after the finish of the first colts classic, the 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket, with the first fillies classic the 1,000 Guineas to come on Sunday. This week’s post concentrates on Saturday’s action from Newmarket, but there is time at the end to take a quick look…
