Re: Horse Racing Discussion Thread: Monday 3rd September - Sunday 9th September

The meeting in Ireland on Thursday at Laytown is a complete anathema. Just one meeting per year which is scheduled for sometime in September, depending on the tides, on the beach at this seaside resort with all races run over 6, or 7 furlongs and no starting stalls. Both the prize money and quality ...

Re: York Ebor Festival Pointers, Trends & Discussion

Hi nors, How did you get on at the Knavesmire on Wednesday and Thursday? I am not totally convinced that there is a massive draw bias towards runners berthed in low stall numbers over sprint trips at this track, as a high draw doesn’t seem to be an issue when there is plenty of early pace and/or the...

Re: York Ebor Festival Pointers, Trends & Discussion

FIRMAMENT (3.00 over 7f192y) York Specialist ... Effective over 7/8 furlongs ... This six-year-old is on an attractive mark, but the time to catch him could be in a handicap at York’s Ebor Festival next month, assuming he is not much higher in the weights. He has run at York three times, for finish...

I have read that connects are considering Listed races such as the Beverley Bullet and Scarborough Stakes (Doncaster) for EL ASTRONAUTE in the next month, or so and it will be interesting to see how he gets o...

Best when racing prominently over 5/5.5 furlongs on Good, or faster ground, off OR of less than 100 after taking jockey’s claim into account ... TOMMY TAYL...

Hi Zipster Thanks for sharing your trends for the Ebor meeting, as a previous advocate of big race trends and once avid OLBG blogger on this topic, I appreciate how much work you have put in to provide the above data. By the way, although it is some time since I last posted on the forum, I have been...

Hi Shrews , It was Nick Mordin’s book that triggered this idea, albeit I have reduced the meticulous writing up of each qualifier to the completion of the checklist mentioned in my first post, which takes just a few minutes whilst reviewing past form and stats on the Racing Post database. I understa...
