    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…

    Tiger Rolls into History

    Tiger Roll became a Grand National legend on Saturday. As he became the first horse since Red Rum to win the race two years on the trot. Like Red Rum, Tiger Roll is bred to be a flat horse, and he’s not exactly built to jump a fence either. But like “Rummy”, he’s just a freak of horse. Travelling powerfully…

    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…

    The Good, the Sad and the Ugly

    It’s just 359 days to the start of the 2020 Cheltenham Festival! And for some the countdown has already began, with a few bookmakers having already opened books on next year’s major races. I don’t know about you, but I find the few days after the end of festival hard to come to terms with. Suddenly you have that empty…

    Taking A Tumble – Jockeys that Fall

    A lot of people, myself included, have done a lot of research on jockeys, and I know a lot of punters blindly follow certain jockeys. Unless you had a decent accumulator bet on Frankie Dettori’s 25,000 to 1 ‘magnificent seven’ at Ascot in 1996, then I’m not sure this is a profitable strategy in the long-run. However, the ability of…

    Who Were the Best Trainers in 2018?

    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.…

    Frequent Flyer Miles – Can You Trust Trainers and Jockeys with Vast Experience at a Particular Course?

    Experienced horse racing punters know better than to take strike rates at face value. Although a jockey or trainer (or perhaps a combination of the two) may have an excellent strike rate at a specific track, it means a lot less when their horses are primarily short-priced favourites. Likewise, having a low strike rate doesn’t mean avoiding a bet because…

    Michael Wilding Rips Apart The Grand National

    It’s been a little while since I wrote a blog post, and what better time to do so than on the day of the Grand National. I’m going to use a combination of the Race Advisor’s tools to make my analysis of the race, beginning with Racing Dossier to narrow down the field. With so many good runners in the…

    OMG! Trump could live to 200 & …..?!

    So, Donald Trump’s doctor has delivered the verdict on his health. And announced that the US President could live to 200 years old – if he cut out cheeseburgers. A scary thought, but hang on… That’s 78 years older than the oldest person who ever lived! Er, maybe he was joking. Maybe he was being sarcastic. After all, Donald Trump…

    Are Course & Distance Winners a Boon for Your Bank Balance?

    Some punters get excited when they see a horse that is a previous course and distance winner. It is very easy to determine if there is one in any given race. You can go to the Racing Post and on the race card, look for the initials ‘CD’ beside a horse’s name. As you can see, Sunshineandbubbles is a course…

    National Hunt, Chase or Hurdles? Can You Profit From Both?

    For horse racing lovers, the thrill of National Hunt racing acts as some form of compensation for the shorter and colder days of autumn and winter. NH races feature older and larger horses than its Flat counterpart, and from September to April, these events are the main focus of the racing calendar as the Flat season takes a backseat. The…

    £400,000 to face some snakes

    Here’s a game of Would You Ever… Would you ever do the trials on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! for £400,000? That’s how much they’ve reportedly paid Amir Khan. That makes the boxer the highest-paid campmate in the history of the ITV show – where you have to face creepy-crawlies (and occasionally eat them). I mean, it’s a…

    Can You Make a Profit From Short-Priced Favourites in Large Fields?

    You might not like to admit it, but there’s a fair chance that you allow your selections to be completely dictated by odds. There is nothing wrong with searching for value, and since over 80% of winners are in the top 5 in the betting market, it makes sense to take the price of a horse into consideration when making…

    Micro Betting Angles (here’s one)

    How does a 64% strike rate sound? Or a 39% return on investment? Not bad for a Monday morning eh 😉 These are the kind of returns that can only be made using micro angles.  A micro-angle is a very niche betting system that takes advantage of something very specific. For example… If you follow Andrew Balding’s horses in Maiden…

    When the Going Gets Tough: How to Profit from Trainer Preference for Ground Conditions

    The ‘going’ in a race relates to the type of conditions underfoot on the course, and it can have a major impact on a horse’s performance. In fact, trainers are not afraid to withdraw a horse from a race if they believe the going is unsuitable for their entry. The going is ‘soft’ or ‘slow’ when there is a lot…

    [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. That’s because the majority of bettors only consider a horse’s form, they don’t think about the fact the trainer also…
