Flat Racing Horses and their targets

The weekly blog will be highlighting horses that I think are nicely handicapped but I don’t always know their targets. Any strong pieces of analysis will go in this blog whilst any that catch my eye throughout the season will also go in here (don’t have to drop in handicap). I am confident that if some of these run in their suggested targets they can go very close. Will be interesting to see how much most of these go up in the handicap anyway (lots from last season went on to win other feature races as well). Let us know what you think […]

Weekly Handicap Blog – Royal Ascot contender?

I aim to write a blog each Tuesday highlighting horses that I feel have been dropped in the handicap down to a mark where I think they can be very competitive. This week, I think there is a horse who is being laid out for a return to Royal Ascot!

Nelson River dropped 4lb to 126

Surely next season Tony Carroll will be stepping this horse up in trip again as he has won on the AW over 2m! His only effort over further came in the Coral Cup where he was held up out the back and never really got […]

Cheltenham Festival 2022 – Liam’s Selections

I think the 2021 Festival has thrown up many winner who will win again and as boring as they are, I think come the festival barring not making it they will be shorter and most likely winners.

Supreme Novices Hurdle 

Sir Gerhard @ 7/1

Sir Gerhard came into Cheltenham 2021 with a big reputation but maybe not as big as Kilcruits and that was why he didn’t go off favourite. He beat Kilcruit well enough with the pair pulling clear. I think the Champion Bumper will work out really well and Sir Gerhard looked to have the most speed out of […]

Cheltenham Festival 2021 – Liam’s Selections

Hopefully you’ve been following Liam’s blogs and thoughts and backed a few of these yourself. Here are Liam’s selections and reasoning so far.

Supreme Novices Hurdle 

Appreciate It @ 5/2

Appreciate It has the stamina to win over further and hopefully wins later today. This stamina is all important at Cheltenham. After suggesting he would be a great bet in the Albert Bartlett this year after his 2nd in the Champion Bumper, he has since proven himself quick enough over 2m and should be strong at the finish at Cheltenham.

Flinteur Sacre @ 16/1

Has been really disappointing and wont be running in […]

Cheltenham Festival 2021 – Day 1 Thoughts

Day 1 of the Cheltenham Festival 2021

Liam has been through Day 1 of the Cheltenham Festival 2021 and found a few horses that he feels are worthy of bets now including a 9/2 NRNB selection and a horse he is really keen on for the Ultima Handicap Chase especially as another horse in the same colours will not be running!

Liam will be previewing Days 2-4 later this week!

Cheltenham Festival 2020 – Where Are They Now?

Cheltenham Festival 2020 Top 5 and In Running Lows

Last year this blog highlighted Concertista @ 25/1 and Dame De Compagnie @ 20/1. 2nd and 3rd in the Gold Cup and 2nd in the Kim Muir. Hopefully we can find another couple of big price winners!

Horses that run well at one Cheltenham Festival generally run well at subsequent Cheltenham Festivals either due to the way the races are run or because connections target a return and here we look at those who finished in the Top 5 of each race of the Cheltenham Festival 2020, the in-running low and where they are now and what the targets could be […]

A fantastic week of Racing. We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas. Liam has compiled a list of horses that caught his eye over the last week and potential targets for these including a horse who looks like he may be off for the Pertemps Final now he’s rated high enough to get in as well as plenty that he feels will be back for the Dublin Racing Festival in February!

Liam has a look at some of the interesting horses from last week and where they might be seen next. These include a horse who he felt ran a much better race in the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup than he was given credit for and a race at Taunton he feels will work out really well.

Liam’s RatingTheRaces Analysis for the past week! These include an angle to look out for using ProStats, a race that should work out well and a couple of horses who look very interesting next time. Is there also a horse that is being campaigned with the Grand National in mind that is being kept very much under the radar?
