    Is it worth your while following trends

    There is a stark difference between horse racing betting systems and trends. With systems, you’re following a set of data in a bid to find winners. I have written dozens of articles for Race Advisor that offer readers an insight into different betting systems to see if they have the potential for profit. A recent example was the ‘Nowhere Fourth’…

    Weekly Eye-Catchers – Horse Racing

    Well, that’s another Cheltenham Festival done and dusted. Still jumps racing hits the accelerator button in the next month or so with the Aintree Festival and of course with it the Grand National. There is the Irish & Scottish Grand National’s, throw in the Punchestown Festival at the end of April and jumps fans have plenty to look forward to.…

    Is horse racing fixed?

    It’s only in comparatively recent years that the perception of horse racing being a fixed sport has started to change. Even though the perception is changing, in a recent survey 49% of people still thought that there was corruption in racing. So what’s the truth? Here at the Race Advisor’s headquarters, we’ve all got different opinions based on our own…

    Want £20,000 for one days work?

    That’s exactly what happened to Colin, a member of VDW Maximiser, this Thursday. Imagine waking up £20,000 richer, all from a £50 bet? Would feel pretty damn good, wouldn’t it 😉 How did he do it? By following the lowest scoring VDW horses and placing a £50 win double bet on them. Easy. Want access to the software that Colin…

    The fix is in. How can you spot a dodgy race and avoid betting on it?

    It would be naïve in the extreme to suggest that the Sport of Kings is purer than the driven snow. Over the last few decades, there have been numerous scandals involving trainers, owners, jockeys, and bookmakers. One of the most notorious instances of alleged race fixing involved six-time Champion Jockey, Kieran Fallon. He was arrested in September 2004 on suspicion…

    Cheltenham

    Bookmakers tend to enjoy the unpredictability of major festivals such as Cheltenham, Newmarket, and Aintree. With so many world-class horses facing off against one another, it can be a nightmare to choose a potential winner. Occasionally, such as the Cheltenham Festival in 2017, a significant number of favourites win and give the bookies a much-needed bloody nose. When it comes…

    Wooohooo, it’s nearly here :D

    In just three days we’ll be enjoying one of the best racing festivals in the world at Cheltenham. Eddie’s going to be analysing every day of the festival to find the strongest runners with the highest chance of winning. Using a combination of trends like… 17 of the last 19 winners had won on their previous outing prior to the festival……

    Weekly Eye-Catchers – Horse Racing

    A lack of recent horse racing on the grass and the fact that I have taken a break to concentrate on the upcoming Cheltenham Festival. All means that this week’s article is slightly different, as there are no horses for your trackers this week. That said there is plenty look at with the next week or so in mind. As…

    Fancy a 99.74% ROI?

    A gelding is a male horse that has been castrated. Gelding a horse is supposed to make horses easier to handle, and they usually have little or no interest in mares. Therefore… a gelding should be more focused and not think about the opposite sex; at least that’s what some punters think. However, a gelded horse will have its speed…

    Henderson Holds All the Aces Going Into the Cheltenham Festival

    “Nicky Henderson” by Carine06 (CC BY-SA 2.0) As the Cheltenham Festival approaches and the ante-post betting markets settle down, it appears that Nicky Henderson is the man currently holding all the aces. The British-based trainer has many chances of success, including the favourites in three of the four championship races that take place at the festival. He heads to the four-day…

    February’s finest NH performers

    We are approaching the business end of the National Hunt season as it gets closer to the two main festivals; Cheltenham in March and Aintree in April. By the time February rolls around, all eyes are firmly on the massive meeting at Cheltenham the following month where the Gold Cup and several other Grade 1 races take place. February can…

    Blackmail at McDonald’s!

    I was in the Drive-Thru bit of McDonald’s the other day. I know – healthy, right? And the guys in the car in front of me hit on a bizarre bit of blackmail. Basically, they told the server they wouldn’t move their car unless they got some extras. Extra food, drinks and so on. And I was stuck behind them. There…

    Battling the hairdresser…

    I got my hair cut yesterday – I went along, sat down and prepared to do battle. The battle of the small conversation. For example, they always seem to ask where I’m going on holiday. It’s a question literally no one else ever asks, but hairdressers appear to be obsessed with the subject. I guess it’s page one, paragraph one…

    Blaklion Can Win The Trial And National

    Saturday’s Haydock Grand National Trial is something of a misnomer because the last horse to win both races was Party Politics in 1993. Even that wasn’t a true trial because the horse won the National the previous year. Since 2003 no winner has even been placed in the most famous steeplechase in the world. It’s a strange fact that Red…

    Exotic bets: Is there a point in wagering on Lucky 15s and other bets with fanciful odds?

    Most of us have been guilty of it in the past; usually when we make our first foray into betting. For me, it was football accumulators as it was several years before I began betting on horse racing. The allure of the long shot is impossible to resist for the casual punter. The whole ‘look for value and bet on…

    There’s a thong in my pocket!

    Here’s something you never, ever want to happen. A woman ordered a new pair of jeans online and tried them on. Only to reach into the pocket… and pull out an old thong! Gah! Understandably, the nurse who ordered them didn’t take kindly to this unintended ‘free gift’ and went absolutely mad at the company. So much so, that the problem…
