    Does it matter how far a horse travels for a race?

    Focusing on horses that have travelled a long distance to a racetrack piques the interest of some people while others disregard it as an ‘old chestnut’ system.

    Should You Back Outsiders in Small Fields?

    There is always an element of the unknown when it comes to races with only 3, 4, or 5 runners.

As a result, the form book makes less sense than normal so surely, punters should look at small fields…

    How Do Top-Weighted Horses Perform in Handicaps?

    When it comes to handicap racing, the top-weighted horse is usually deemed to be the classiest (highest OR) in the race; that is why it is forced to carry more weight than any other horse.
