    Big challenge 6/4 NAP
    6.45 kempton

    Will be shocked if monarch glen troubles the selection , only just dealt with pealer lto , whom has massively disappointed since , the threat comes from here and now

    Ambassadorial 7/4 – NB
    7.30 Dundalk
    Only rated a pound worse than intelligent cross but has only had 2 runs. Winning listed event lto not having run of race , the threat comes from war secretary but time and time again obrien horses generally need a run after a break

    Hi everyone, I know a few of you use systems etc when making selections. I realise that there are a few options out there to invest in, but does anyone have any recommendations for horse racing stat databases and system builders etc?

    Thanks in advance.

      Well not a very good day at all today 8 points staked and thanks to a couple of each ways it’s 5.75 points returned. That’s a 2.25 point loss today.

      Back again tomorrow if anything takes my fancy – well done to all today’s winners.

    A quick thanks to all those keeping points totals its a big help for us all. Some really good ones too. Hopefully mine will improve after time, only started gambling in february so alot to learn.

    Was thinking it could be a good idea if the best points each month won something?? Not sure if thats possible but it would ramp up the competition between us all and hopefully producing more winners for everyone…just a thought. Back to my coffee break ☕
    Good luck today guys ☘

      Points are fine but it’s not a contest so no prizes.
      When prizes are introduced people tend to change the way they tip.

      You said the other you were taking a break because people put up points – well that’s up to them.
      I have no problem with people putting up points if they want.
      As I said your tips are valued but your efforts in trying to control the site are not.
      Good luck.

      It was not a great thread in terms of results, no one can argue that. It was so hard to pick a tip with so many and no point of reference to go from.. points help us back people doing well, it is not a competition whatsoever.

      The guy we “lost” recently would slap up 5/6 horses and be lucky to get 1 winner a day on average, it make absolutely no sense to stop posting based on others tracking their points to help the punters.

      As for don’t give a Donald, I remember you being the troll around 1 year ago, creating lots of accounts and being a nuisance, just like you were trying to be with harry the other day, grow up. People give their time for us and we berate then for point tracking??

      People slate johnb when he has a bad run, but don’t realise if everyone point tracked, he would be performing far better than most.

    some folk like having there points up some don’t – the ones that don’t are not told to put them up and vice versa
    and as your name states (don’t give a Donald) why comment?
    everyone comes on to give tips or horses they fancy its about making money and beating the bookies
    nothing more nothing less – guys just enjoy the site for what it is – stop complaining and trying to make people argue etc
    if you have a tip put it up if not sit back and relax more things to worry about in life than points total etc
    as I stated before I like it – if you don’t then that’s your own opinion no need to push your views into everyone else face leave it at that

    good luck to everyone today that’s posted up horses

    A 3rd and 10/1 4th was my day yesterday until I tipped up a winning 12/1 shot drifting to 20/1 in the last at tipperary, not many would’ve seen it so hoping for better today.

    Venetian Lad 12/1 – Font 340
    Ice Slice 10/1 – Notts 350
    Cosmic Ray 8/1 – Notts 420
    Bedouin 5/1 – Notts 520

    For interest 50p/£1 L15 advised, hopefully have more concrete selections for this evening.

      • Profile photo of juicin
        juicin 2 weeks ago

        Thanks, only one winner but at 8/1, assuming you got double the odds for only one winner then it was a small profit, if not, not much damage done.

        Ice Slice lead for a while but at top weight couldn’t last home, one to keep tabs on. Bedouin could only manage 2nd preventing a decent profit. Well done johnb on the nap, hopefully others got some winners in too.

    Test

    • Profile photo of harryjw
      harryjw 2 weeks ago

      Morning all,

      Quite frankly I don’t understand the comments recently about posting points- undoubtably some are aimed at me. Ive said this so many times now, but this is NOT am competition amongst us it’s a competition against the bookmakers let’s try to remember that. Anyway Snoano delivered a tasty winner yesterday at 14/1 (10p R4) and with the aid of a couple of other placed selections I made a 8.93 profit on the day. Two weekends ago I had one of the worst two days of gambling I can remember and I lost 51 points- but thankfully I’ve managed to erode most of those loses. My selections today are:

      14.20 Nottingham – Twizzell 22/1 EW

      This horse was highly tried last year after her runaway success in a maiden and looks to be overpriced today. She won on debut last year so should go well fresh and the gold ground will be spot on (0.50 points each way @ 22/1).

      14.50 Nottingham – Merry Banter 13/2 EW

      At the odds I would rather be with Merry Banter in this trappy looking contest. The selection will be fit from her latest runs on the all weather and receives weight from most of the field. On her last start in 2016 she beat Kyllang Rock at Haydock (very fast time) and hopefully she can progress again this season (0.50 points each way @ 13/2). Major Jumbo is a horse I have followed this year on the AW and he is feared most.

      *I am having some issues postings this morning so I’ve split it over two posts.

      • Profile photo of harryjw
        harryjw 2 weeks ago

        16.10 Fontwell – Peggie’s Venture 7/2

        I am willing to give Peggie’s Venture one final chance this afternoon after she has disappointed on her last two runs. The form of her close second in a Listed Bumper at Huntington back in December was boosted by the winner (Oscar Rose) finishing a close second in the Aintree Grade 2 bumper. If she puts in an effort anywhere near that form she should win this race easily. I do think that the trip today will be ideal as in both her hurdle runs she didn’t seem to have the speed over 16F or the stamina for 20F. The good ground should be fine and hopefully she can put in an improved effort (1.5 points win @ 7/2).

        16.50 Nottingham – Plead 11/1 EW & Serenade The Stars 12/1 EW

        I am happy to play this race double handed as I like the chances of both Plead & Serenade The Stars. Plead was rather disappointing last time out on handicap debut but he did shape as though he needed the run. Based form and time of her maiden win at Lingfield she looks worthy of another chance with race fitness now assured (0.50 points each way @ 11/1). Serenade The Stars on the other hand has readily won both his previous starts by a combined 8 lengths and is very much a horse on the improve. Out of Sea The Stars conditions should be fine for his turf debut and if he keeps improving a mark of 75 could well be within reach (0.50 points each way @ 12/1).

        Many thanks and GL to all

        April: -1.14

    Hi everyone,

    I’m trying to learn more about pedigrees and breeding in horses to help me understand more. To understand better if a newcomer will like the going or the distance etc. Does anyone have any recommendations of where I can learn about this properly, any books to teach myself maybe?

    JohnB any reason why such a big drift on your next out to 6/1 now not complaining if it wins though.

  32. Profile photo of Johnb
    Johnb 2 weeks ago

    Not sure why Scuzeme is drifting but so did Valcartier until about five mins before the race, Scuzeme was probably the most impressive winner I have seen this year as the horse did it with the jockey pulling the head off the horse for the whole race, he won by three lengths but the reality is it could have been ten plus lengths in a five furlong race
    It is a bit of an unknown now at Nottingham as we don’t know how horses will cope with the wind but on a handicap mark of 80 Scuzeme has been given a huge chance by the handicapper

    Maybe there is a problem with the horse we don’t know about, we won’t know until the horse runs

    And that’s your answer, Scuzeme has never been tried with today and still come a very easy second, given a very easy ride by the jockey and has finished about the same distance behind the winner as he was at halfway
    remember this soft ride next time the horse is running 😉
