Re: Horse Racing Weekly Discussion Thread - Mon 21st May to Sun 27th May 2018

Goodwood 14:35 Parnassian 8.00 The inside stalls have an edge over the 7f trip at Goodwood and I think that makes Parnassian worth chancing in the 14:35. The 4yo improved for a hit out last season, finishing second and then following up with a win (off 86) in decent 3yo company on his second and th...

Re: Horse Racing Discussion Weekly Thread - Mon 14th - Sun 20th

Banditry York 16:05 9/1. I was pleasantly surprised to see Banditry returned to the Flat following his spin over the sticks, and he went into the tracker following his return in the Spring Lodge Stakes Hcp over 9f at Newmarket 2 weeks ago. He ran on for 4th in that race behind the very promising Oa...

Burj. 4/1 Newbury 13:30 Saeed Bin Suroor sends just his second 2yo runner out today and I'm looking forward to seeing how Burj goes in the opener at Newbury. A Dansili colt out of a good quality mare (Dysphonia) that Godolphin raced in Australia. Time flies. It doesn't seem that long ago that I was...

Re: Horse Racing Discussion Weekly Thread - Mon 14th - Sun 20th

York 14:20 Edward Lewis Tim Easterby has 3 runners in this race but his stats with fresh horses aren't great and all 3 are coming off a break of 200 days or more. His strike rate is <5% with horses fresh from a break of 120 days + (including sprinters over 5f) compared to >10% with his horses runni...

Re: Horse Racing Discussion and Information Weekly Thread: Mon 26th Mar - Sun 1st Apr

I couldn't see the reasoning behind the early money for the Farrelly horse False Id in the 17:05 Wolves. Seeing that money and the trainer with 3 runners today (one now scratched), as well as a few other odd looking entries had me thinking a multi race gamble could be on the cards. I thought Jeremy'...

Re: Horse Racing Discussion and Information Weekly Thread: Mon 26th Mar - Sun 1st Apr

Daniel Skelton has a pretty good record with horses on Handicap Hurdle debut, with a strike rate of ~ 15-16% since the beginning of 2015. He's been upping his game with such runners at Market Rasen though, with 5 winners from 8 (for 62%) since 2015 (it's actually 5 from 6 since the start of 2016 but...

Re: Horse Racing Discussion and Information Weekly Thread: Mon 26th Mar - Sun 1st Apr

At Taunton today the trainer/jockey pairing of Christian Williams and Denis O'Regan looks interesting. They team up for 4 runners, while O'Regan is also booked for the very much in-form trainer Charlie Mann's only runner Zen Master (14:50). I think the chances are good that Denis O'Regan gets into t...

Re: Making money from Horse steamers

Hi FootyDon. It's best to keep questions on the same topic in a single thread. Maybe you would've been better asking the ATR Market Movers question here, or maybe in the Weekly Discussion Thread instead of creating a whole new thread? To answer your question though, if you are asking about using som...

Re: What does the ATR index mean?

Hi I still don't understand the numbers is the higher number better what the percentage mean? ? I think Shrews is referring to a different Index Figure, possibly one on the Horse Form page that refers to collateral and subsequent form. Here's the direct quote from the website re the ATR Index on th...

Re: Cheltenham 2018 Discussion

Pieros I'm pretty keen on Duc Des Genievres too. Looked to be travelling very easily tucked in behind the field in his two races, both Grade 1's, and to pull out a racing cliche he definitely "shaped like he had more to offer". I see you've also found Barra in the <a target=_blank href=http://olbg....

Re: Festival Placepots

I agree with Danny and others in that the Place Pot is a good bet. I play it regularly when there are multiple horses I'm backing on the same card. It is better to cop a 28% commission on this bet than it is to pay the overround on the Place part of each leg in a 6 fold eachway accumulator. On quiet...

Re: Cheltenham 2018 Discussion

I've got a sneaking suspicion that this could be a bookmaker's benefit year with the heavy ground, and it starts with the largest Supreme field in 10 years. For some reason I don't get as strong vibes from Getabird as I did in recent years with Mullins' favourites, although that probably means the h...
