Grand National - Are Tongue Ties And Headgear A Negative?

Published: Apr 2, 12:33pm Last Updated: Jul 7, 9:00am TeddyT on Horse Racing 0 Comments 2747 Views

I've had a look at the last ten Grand Nationals to see if the various bits of equipment worn can be considered a help or hindrance and here are the figures: Blinkers 38 horses have worn blinkers with the following win and placed: 2008 Comply Or Die 7/1JF WIN 2009 Comply Or Die 14/1 2ND Cheekpieces 39 horses have worn blinkers with the following placed: 2007 McKelvey 12/1 2ND 2010 Black Apalachi 14/1 2ND Tongue Ties 53 horses have worn...

Can Champion Hurdlers Jump Fences?

Published: Dec 17, 10:24am Last Updated: Jul 7, 9:00am TeddyT on Cheltenham 3 Comments 3538 Views

Rock On Ruby Takes A New Challenge 2012 Champion Hurdler Rock On Ruby recorded a facile victory over fences yesterday at Plumpton and in doing so became the first former winner of the Champion Hurdle to win over the larger obstacles since 2005. Harry Fry has rightly decided that staying over hurdles any longer with Rock On Ruby is probably a futile exercise given the way his charge was so easily dismissed by The New One at Kempton on his...

August Bank Holiday Trainers To Follow

Published: Aug 22, 11:30am Last Updated: Mar 26, 3:12pm TeddyT on Horse Racing 5 Comments 2599 Views

Back in May I had a look at if there were any trainers who appear to target the Bank Holiday meetings for a potential gamble. The May Bank Holiday threw up repeat winners for Richard Fahey, Tim Easterby and David Barron and it may be worth keeping an eye on the upcoming Bank Holiday to see if there are any other trainers who could also be worth following. Richard Guest has managed four decent priced winners on this Bank Holiday... [ Read More ]

Which UK National Hunt courses have the most falls and unseats in chases?

Published: Jan 2, 5:24pm Last Updated: Mar 26, 3:12pm TeddyT on Horse Racing 1 Comment 3075 Views

I imagine if you ask any National Hunt fan, they will know that the Aintree Grand National fences are the hardest jumping test in the UK, but which other tracks offer a stern test of jumping? Are there some tracks where jumping prowess is not tested as much? If someone had asked me which tracks (Aintree aside) had the hardest fences to jump round I probably would have said Cheltenham, Sandown and Ascot. As I didn't have any actual figures...

Summer Jumps - Trainers To Note (1)

Published: Apr 29, 6:43pm Last Updated: Mar 26, 3:11pm TeddyT on Horse Racing 1 Comment 2329 Views

The victory of Quentin Collonges in the Bet365 Gold Cup sees the end of the traditional jumps season and now die-hard jumps fans face the prospect of trying to pick their way through the low quality offerings that take place under National Hunt Rules throughout the summer months. Summer Jumping can often produce some very low grade affairs with small fields and lots of short price favourites. In the circumstances, I began to wonder if there might be a better... [ Read More ]

Bank Holiday Monday Trainers To Note

Published: May 26, 10:54am Last Updated: Mar 26, 3:10pm TeddyT on Horse Racing 3 Comments 2463 Views

We all know that many trainers will target certain meetings, courses, races or days where they want to try and have a winner but is there any way of figuring out what the trainers are planning? When I was growing up a gambling mad uncle of mine was convinced that some particular trainers would try and organise a gamble for Boxing Day at one of the smaller meetings in the hope that any suspicious betting patterns would be less likely...

Player Form In China Since 2008

Published: Feb 22, 5:32pm Last Updated: Mar 26, 3:10pm TeddyT on Snooker 1 Comment 1986 Views

The World Open begins on the 25th February in Haikou, China and as there have been plenty of comments, both positive and negative, in recent months about playing conditions in China I thought it might be worth looking at which players have done well on trips to Asia. Below is a table of the winners, finalists and beaten semi-finalists since 2008. During that time there have been seventeen tournaments in China. I have included all results I could find and...
