I have been interested in horse racing for over 40 years and have gained sufficient insight over this period to be able to make a reasonable profit on my betting for 19 of the last 20 years. I tend to concentrate on top class races, specifically international and domestic group flat racing and graded National Hunt races. That said, I can't resist having a crack at the most prestigious handicaps. I have recently enjoyed plenty of success both on the flat and in national hunt races with trends based selections, which can be followed on OLBG via my regular blogs.
