  • Horse Racing Breeding and Pedigree Profit Guide - Kings Theatre

    garethp1981 on 23 Oct at 19:16

    Horse racing is often called the “Sport of Kings” due to its association with the aristocracy and this association has had an effect on a lot of the names given to horses. A variety of names such as “Royal”, “Queen” and “Prince” are often used, but by far the most common of these is "King". Kings Theatre is not responsible for all of these but he sired 29 runners1 last year with the word King in their name, so he has certainly played his part. The last blog was an attempt to explain the importance of a racehorse’s sire in indicating to a punter how well that horse is likely to perform in racing. The top ten lists for this season so far as well as the previous four seasons were compared and the conclusion was reached that the same sires…

  • How to Avoid Scam Bookmakers

    dannyblue on 24 Oct at 14:37

    FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER There is a lot of confusion in the world of betting on who to trust when you have to choose a bookmaker. There is a lot of emphasis on what you should bet, but not so much on where you should bet. A lot of times novice players choose the wrong bookie and end up having their bets not being paid out, or their money confiscated or worse with a bookmaker gone bankrupt. Usually people start to gravitate towards bad bookmakers when they are attracted by better odds or big bonuses, or when bookies from their country don't offer a particular type of bet. Luckily there are several ways available to us players to avoid being scammed by these type of bookies. 1) Check Bookie ratings websites An easy way to start is to check as much information as we…

  • One Trick jockeys question and answers over the twenty day period

    meoldmate on 23 Oct at 13:08

    One trick jockeys During the period of going live on the 5th October until now there has obviously been loads of one ride jockeys. It has been noted that many appear with just one ride for the whole day and a good percentage are on horses who are a very big price in the betting, and more likely making the numbers up, than being in with a chance of winning. The blog has been very supportive by other members which is good to see, as many eyes make light work. One trick jockey Checklist Question Does the trainer have a good strike rate at the course? Answer With what I have notice, many trainers have declared their runners with the rider having this as his single ride of the day, not being a positive one to take from the field, even though the trainer has…

  • Horse Racing Trends - Issue 9 - 25 to 31 October 2016

    Robmull on 24 Oct at 14:39

    The purpose of this blog is to provide trends based information that will hopefully assist readers to identify value and profitable wagers throughout the week. The content of this blog should not be considered as a source of free horse racing tips, however in my opinion, the data can be used to produce a list of potential candidates that can then be assessed further through the use of form study, race and ground conditions, plus any draw/pace bias, etc, to identify likely winners and hopefully profitable bets. Although it is highly unlikely that all of the trends detailed below will prove profitable to follow immediately, many of the statistics should be worth noting for consideration in the future. My intention is to update this blog on a daily basis, with information that will generally relate to the following day’s race meetings,…

  • How to Make Money Trading Bookmakers Short Priced Football Favourites

    nors on 20 Oct at 10:05

    When you start looking at a list of matches you can easily see there is a favourite and an outsider. In some matches the favourite is a clear fav and in others the difference between the fav and the outsider is narrow. The draw in many cases will also be a short price. These narrow matches the bookies find hard to separate the teams. The bookmakers set odds based on statistics and which teams they expect bettors to support. As we know bookmakers make a profit on whatever the result by building in an over round, you can read more about this at the OLBG Betting School. So when we see a match where the odds are close we know that the bookies are in a bit of a quandary unsure on which team should be favourite. They have a…
