    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.

    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. On the one hand, handicappers in the UK are exceptionally talented and seldom get it wrong when determining how much weight a horse should carry.…
