  • In Form Trainers - 8 to 14 February 2016

    Robmull on 07 Feb at 12:34

    The purpose of this blog is to highlight trainers in Britain that are currently in good form based on a minimum of 5 winners at a strike rate of 20% or more and have recorded a level stake profit across all of their runners during the last 14 days up to the close of racing on Saturday. In addition, I will endeavour to list where these trainers have horses entered at racecourses over the forthcoming week where the trainer has been profitable to follow since the start of 2012 and will also highlight any jockeys that have been profitable to follow when teaming up with our in form trainers, during 2015/16. There is an old saying that states that success breeds further success and whilst most training stables come in and out of form during the year, it often pays…

  • SkyBet Supreme Novices' Hurdle Key Race Trends - 15 March 2016

    Robmull on 01 Feb at 15:39

    The Sky Bet Supreme Novices’ Hurdle is a Grade 1 Hurdle which is run over 2 miles and 1/2 a furlong at Cheltenham and is the first race on day 1 of the Festival on Tuesday, 15 March 2016. The race is considered to be the most prestigious 2 mile hurdle race for Novices of the season and always presents an interesting puzzle for punters to assess, with an average field size of almost 18 runners taking part during the past decade. During this period, 2 favourites (including 1 joint favourite) have been successful for a level stakes loss of 4.75 pts, whilst only 3 further winners were sent off at single figure odds with the exceptions starting at odds ranging from 10/1 (2), 12/1 (2) to 40/1 which suggests that this is not a particularly easy race for…

    SUPERBOWL 50 PREVIEW Oh life is short in the NFL. Hardly before it feels like the season has started and here we are in the first week of February already! 266 games gone, a load of teams saying could’ve should’ve and after simply too many ‘was it a catch or wasn’t it a catch’ plays later we come to this: the 50th instalment of Superbowl. We’ve seen the incredible become the normal again it seems in the NFL this season. Odell Beckham Jr and a whole host of other protagonists making one handed catches; Aaron Rodgers throwing 60 yards into the endzone for a game winning Hail Mary; 4 teams unbeaten right through until nearly Christmas and then there’s Peyton Manning breaking the all-time passing yardage. Yep, just your normal run of the mill NFL. I urge anyone who’s not yet…
