    Weekly Eye-catchers – Horse Racing

    A shorter article than normal this week as there wasn’t much top class horse racing to look back at last week or over the weekend with the Shergar Cup taking centre stage. Love it or loath it the Shergar Cup does attract a decent crowd with 30,000 in attendance. As for betting it’s really not a meeting that I take…

    Can You Be Successful From Last Time Out Winners?

    When it comes to picking winners, punters are enamoured with the form guide and what better way to make money than to back a horse that won its last race? Around 50 years ago, race lovers apparently made substantial sums of money from backing Last Time Out Winners. It transpired that horses in National Hunt races were being turned out…

    Profiling And A Dodgy Car Sale

    Profiling, as was discussed last month, works great when we are dealing with those handicaps providing plenty by way of prize money but, the run of the mill midweek racing, and the off-meetings we have of a Saturday, are best “handicapped” and since 1992, I have been working my socks off to get that side of my business right. May…

    As horse racing is notoriously difficult to predict, an increasing number of punters are looking to make a profit by laying favourites. In simple terms, you are betting against the favourite and if any other horse in the race wins, you also win. In theory, this seems like an excellent idea. From data I collected from all races from 2012-2016,…

    Well “Super Saturday” or as I prefer to call it “Saturated Saturday” is over for another year. I don’t have the time to write in detail as to why I think it’s bad for horse racing but suffice to say it’s not in the interest of punters.

    Bookies or Betfair: Where You Should Bet To Make the Most Profit

    For decades, bookies on the High Street were the undisputed kings when it came to offering prices on the Sport of Kings. Then in 2000, Betfair was created and completely changed the way punters viewed betting.

    Important Royal Ascot Trends

    Day 1 Queen Anne Stakes The Queen Anne Stakes is a fine opening race and tends to start the festival off with a bang.

    Making a Profit from Favourites at All Weather Tracks

    In this article I’ll look at the performances of favourites at All-Weather (AW) tracks in the UK. I will focus on Kempton, Wolverhampton, Lingfield and Southwell while leaving out Newcastle since it’s a relatively new AW track.
