Michael started the Race Advisor in 2009 to help bettors become long-term profitable. After writing hundreds of articles I started to build software that contained my personal ratings. The Race Advisor has more factors for UK horse racing than any other site, and we pride ourselves on creating tools and strategies that are unique, and allow you to make a long-term profit without the need for tipsters.

  1. Hi Michael,
    I approve wholeheartedly of your “info-Graphic” idea. This is an excellent way of displaying a large amount of data in a way in which every one can digest easily. I tend to think “visually!” anyway, so it suits me down to the ground!

    I look forward to seeing some more.

  2. Hi Michael,
    Excellent display of info!
    Your figures are broadly in agreement with figures here in Australia, not unexpected as we follow Pattern racing here also.

    You mention Class 4 races: what is the significance/benchmark for this class in UK?
    Here a Class 4 would be restricted to winners of not more than 4 races.

    Last start winners tend to strike at about 19% here.
    Do you have any figures for runners that are the ONLY last start winner in the race?
    These bob up regularly here, often at nice prices, suggesting some punters don’t like winning form!
    Cheers, Peter

    1. Thanks for the comment Peter, I’m pleased to hear you like it. Class 4 races are horses rated 66-75.

      I don’t have the data for runners that are the only last start winner in a race, but have made a note to investigate. Thank you.

  3. I look forward to seeing some more
    any thing thats new got to be a way to see if it will work
    keep the good work up m8


  4. Excellent way of displaying info! Perhaps a little series illustrating such useful tit- bits of info. would be in order!

  5. Never short of ideas this man….I am a follower… very effective and speed up assimilation of information especially the less gifted punter like me.

  6. Hi Michael,

    A visual representation is a very useful way to digest a lot of information. These infographics are ideal. This information can then be used as a platform for further research (eg jockey, trainer form, draw bias…etc).

    Good stuff.
