  • Betfred Ebor at York Key Race Trends - 20 August 2016

    Robmull on 23 Jul at 15:33

    The Betfred Ebor is a Class 2 Heritage Handicap for runners aged 3 years and older, which is run over 1 mile and 6 furlongs at York on Saturday, 20 August 2016 and is traditionally the big betting race of the fourth and final day of the York Ebor Festival. With an average field size of just under 17 runners during the past decade, the Betfred Ebor often provides an fiendishly difficult puzzle for punters to assess, especially as the draw can often have a major impact on the outcome of the race, which often surprises punters in light of the extended race distance. During the past decade (9 races, as the 2008 renewal was abandoned) only 1 market leader (7/2) has obliged for a Loss of 5.50 points, whilst just 1 of the remaining 9 winners was sent off…

  • Connacht Hotel Handicap at Galway Key Race Trends - 25 July 2016

    Robmull on 24 Jul at 16:45

    The Connacht Hotel (QR) Handicap is an extremely valuable race for runners aged 4 years and older which is run over 2 miles at Galway on Monday, 25 July 2016. With an average field size of just under 20 runners during the past decade, the Connacht Hotel Handicap often provides a fiendishly difficult puzzle for punters to assess, as the race is restricted to amateur jockeys riding horses that are often better known for their exploits over hurdles and fences rather than running in valuable flat handicaps. During the past decade only 1 market leader has obliged for a Loss of 5.00 points, whilst just 2 of the remaining 9 winners were sent off at single figure odds, with the exceptions starting at odds ranging from 10/1 to 16/1, which suggests that punters often need to look beyond the…

  • Galway Plate Key Race Trends - 27 July 2016

    Robmull on 19 Jul at 15:34

    The Tote.com Galway Plate is an extremely valuable Grade A Handicap Steeplechase which is run over 2 miles, 6 furlongs and 110 yards at Galway on Wednesday, 27 July and is one of the highlights of the 7 day Galway Festival meeting. The Galway Plate often provides punters with an fiendishly difficult challenge with an average field of just under 22 runners. During the past decade, 3 market leaders have obliged for a LSP of 4.25 pts, although only 1 of the remaining 7 winners started at single figure odds, whilst the exceptions were sent off at odds of 12/1, 14/1, 16/1 x 3 and 22/1, which suggests that winners can come from just about anywhere in the betting market. Whilst undertaking some recent research on this event, I noticed that the table detailing the past winners of the race…

    tbuckley on 19 Jul at 22:49

    Betting Approach - Premier League 2016/17 Ante-Post Football markets Preview Football betting has developed and progressed massively over the last 10 years, especially the last 5, with punters having a seemingly ever increasing array of betting options to choose from. In the series of 'Betting Approach' blogs I've written so far, I've looked how betting has changed, what mistakes are made, what we've learned as punters and also discussed what betting options football punters now have. Without doubt one of the biggest choices of betting options football punters now have is the incredible, mind boggling range of Ante-post markets to take in, there are literally hundreds of different Ante-post markets offered up by the various bookmakers. Now I absolutely love getting stuck into the Ante-post markets in the weeks leading up to a new season, I love the challenge of searching through all…

  • Glorious Goodwood - a look at the Betfred Mile and Qatar Stewards Cup

    The Market Man on 24 Jul at 20:14

    Glorious Goodwood - a look at the Betfred Mile and Qatar Stewards Cup This is indisputably one of my favourite weeks of the year - Goodwood and Galway provide us with great racing from both flat and jumps, each course with it's own idiosyncrasies and trainers who take advantage of them. I've written a separate blog for Galway so we can concentrate here on the action on the Sussex Downs... The Betfred Mile : Class 2 handicap Known as the Golden Mile to most. A right hand turn halfway through the race means the draw can be influential when making a selection. The last three years, the first three home started from the first ten stalls. In 2012 it was the first two home. Experience of Goodwood or Epsom, another undulating track with a downhill straight which tests the balance of horses…

  • Trainers to follow in August

    Scratville on 24 Jul at 13:34

    Off on my Holiday so the Blogs up early. April, May and June have all been profitable months and July at the time of Writing is +£87.50 LSP. We are currently +180.89 LSP for the year which has surpassed my expectations! Last August was the most successful month I have ever had with £126.78 LSP. It's going to be the busiest month I have had with 24 trainers and well over 500 runners. As the blog has progressed I'm getting better results by having more trainers, obviously the stats have to be good but because of BOG I'm finding increasing the Trainers is reducing the variance and producing much better results. GB FLAT TURF JOHN GOSDEN (ALL) A blog regular who returns from last August where he gave us +£22.07 LSP. 2011 7/66 …
