I like to take into account the Cheltenham Bumper as this race can be informative to follow and here is the field to look at this season with, many have raced after this race and have appeared this season. Could be picking up some nice prices, where these may appear under the radar. 1. RELEGATE W. Mullins Raced twice since winning and not won, with a seventh at Punchestown in the Champion national hunt. First run over hurdles at Punchestown... [ Read More ]

Wow, how quick has this year gone!  After treading water for most of November we go into December needing a miracle to end the year in profit and looking at last December's results its going to be hard as it was woeful with only three of our NH trainers showing a profit.  We have those three returning along with a couple of others and a couple of Irish trainers to boot.   NH GB NICKY RICHARDS (ALL) Back from last...

Horse Racing Trainers To Follow In November (NH)

November see's the NH start properly with the Charlie Hall and the OLBG mares at Wetherby and the Hennessy later in the month. We've really gone well in recent months and with almost a week left in October at the time of writing we are down to a double figure loss which gives us an outside chance of turning a profit on the year. The NH part of the blog was awful last November losing upwards of (£40.00) LSL, there... [ Read More ]

The All Weather section of last years November blog was the only part to produce a profit, no surprise then to see four trainers back from last year with one new addition.

Cheltenham November Meeting (2018) Trends & Pointers

 Last updated Nov 20, 3:52pm     on Horse Racing    3 Comments    1960 Views

The first of the two big handicap betting races of the Cheltenham November meeting and still remembered fondly as the "Mackeson Gold Cup" by many national hunt traditionalists when the likes of Fifty Dollars More, Half Free, Very Promising, Pegwell Bay and Bradbury Star were winning this back in the 1980's and 90's. Although good chasers in their own right, the most recent winners of the BetVictor Gold Cup Handicap Chase have probably not carried the same 'clout' as those... [ Read More ]

PBF. SOME IMPORTANT NOTES. The most likely winner is the horse I have shortest on my tissue. The value horse is simply the horse that offers the biggest margin over the bookmaker's tissue.

PBF POST MORTEM. Most of you have probably by now read or seen the new blog I am running regarding my ratings and tissue which I produce myself and as much for my own interest as the interest of others have decided to put down on paper, in regard to the tissue and the ratings so I have a record that is at least cohesive, that I myself can look back at and hopefully improve my own punting. At the... [ Read More ]
