    Liberty Set for Royal Ascot

    Just seven days ago we were looking back at a weekend of Classic action. High class racing that took place under blue skies and warm sunshine. 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…

    John Burke Monday EyeCatcher

    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…

    Epsom Derby & Oaks Previews

    Hard to believe, but by the beginning of June four of the five English Classics will have been run and this time next week I will be looking back at the Epsom Derby & Oaks. 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…

    Finding Winners In Fast Sprints

    It’s no uncommon for us to think that finding winners is hard. But the truth is… …it doesn’t have to be! Generally winning approaches have far fewer elements to them than most would believe! Take Mick, one of our members and great forum advocates, his winning approaches he’s generously sharing with other members in the forum, are made up of…

    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…

    Goodbye to Jumps

    Just over a week ago I had my right kidney removed so it’s hard to believe that I’m able to write this week’s Monday blog post. The pain and soreness are still there and, although each day I feel better, I’m pacing my way back to full fitness. It was the final day of the British jumps season on Saturday…

    The Each-Way Sandwich

    Originally this morning I thought that I was going to be writing about a strategy based on taking advantage of bookmakers being forced to give the wrong odds on the place portion of each-way bets. It’s not a new approach, but it’s still effective and nobody talks about it anymore. Why? Because it requires… effort! Oops, that’s a kind of…

    Inside The Rails – Race Planning

    In my regular articles, I have been taking a look at racehorse ownership to try to provide a peak behind the scenes at what goes into getting the horses that we watch and bet on, ready to take the chance on the racecourse. In earlier articles, I have looked at purchasing horses, the owner’s day at the races, what different…

    Inside The Rails – At the Stables

    Last week we looked at the ownership experience at the racecourse, but this is only a small part of the ownership experience.  Even a sprinter will only probably run around 20 races a year and this leaves at least 345 days where owners are not racing with their horse.  There is plenty to experience away from the racecourse however and…

    The Jumping Game

    As a woman who trained the great Best Mate to win three consecutive Cheltenham Gold Cups, no one could be better qualified than Henrietta Knight to discover what makes today’s top jumps trainers succeed. From eccentric, outspoken Yorkshireman Mick Easterby, to elegant, aristocratic Venetia Williams, from Irish wizard, Willie Mullins, to perfectionist champion trainer, Paul Nicholls and young pretender, Dan…

    Three Standout Races at the Aintree Festival

The Merseyside track is a superb venue, and thousands of spectators descend on the course each and every year. The competitive racing attracts a plethora of top trainers and jockeys to the north west, and despite taking place…

    Inside the Rails – At the Stables

    If you follow racing at all, you will have probably heard of syndicates and racing clubs and these vehicles allow people to come together to share the costs of ownership.  There may not actually be too much difference between a syndicate and a racing club, but then again one syndicate or racing club can be very different from another, so…

    Sean Bowen: A Future Champion Jockey?

    I am big fan of Sean Bowen, the son of trainer Peter Bowen, and brother of James. Indeed, I have praised his riding a few times this jumps season. Well there is no doubt he’s riding at the very top of his game now. At Kelso on Saturday, Sean’s talents were once again showcased. Bowen won the first two races…

    We have come to the end of 2018 and now is as good a time as any to reflect on the best-performing trainers of the year, from the perspective of a punter. In this article, I will look at trainers on the Flat, AW, and National Hunt, and see if this year was par for the course or an anomaly.…

    In the Long Run – Is Stamina a Defining Factor for Longer Races?

    The weather is cold and wet which means one thing: The National Hunt season is upon us! The hurdles and fences are out, the going is sometimes Heavy, and the races are longer with every mistake capable of taking a horse out of a race. After backing a horse to win a 3m 4f Chase race on Heavy ground, your…

    Should You Go Dutch? A Guide to ‘Dutching’ in Horse Racing

    Legend has it that the term ‘dutching’ comes from the mobster Arthur Simon Flegenheimer, better known as Dutch Schultz. He was Al Capone’s accountant and was involved in various rackets including a racetrack. Schultz is credited with coming up with the idea of dutching in the 1920s.  It is a system of betting used mainly in horse racing and football.…
