Cheltenham Festival 2019 Top 5 and In Running Lows

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, the in-running low and where they are now and what the targets could be this season.

Supreme Novices Hurdle 

Klassical Dream  – subsequently won at Punchestown in April. Has since been beaten at Punchestown and at Leopardstown.

14/1 for Champion Hurdle & 33/1 for Arkle

Thomas Darby – (in running low of 5.00) – placed once […]

2019-01-29T22:49:19+00:00November 21st, 2018|

On Saturday 17th November 2018 we had 16 TOP RATED winners including Darlyn at 7.40 BFSP and Premier Rose at 7.15 BFSP both at Uttoxeter.

First Assignment was another TOP RATED winner, this one coming at Cheltenham for Ian Williams and has since been raised 13lb for this win.

We also had 2 reverse forecasts at Cheltenham including in the feature BetVictor Gold Cup with RTR 2 Baron Alco holding off Top Rated Frodon for a reverse forecast worth an impressive £122.69

Our 2 best courses on Saturday were Uttoxeter where we had 4 TOP RATED winners from 7 races and Wetherby where we […]

National Hunt Horses To Follow 2017-2018 Season!

2017-07-15T11:59:22+01:00May 21st, 2017|

Here are our NATIONAL HUNT HORSES TO FOLLOW for the 2017-2018 season Although the National Hunt Season has drawn to a close, National Hunt racing doesn’t really stop and there are some good prizes over jumps during the summer, although I’m not sure if any of these will be aiming for such prizes. Hopefully we have highlighted horses in this blog post that will be well worth following next season in some of the feature handicaps. Charli Parcs Trained by Nicky Henderson and Owned by Mr J P McManus Charli Parcs is a great starting point as he will split opinions. After winning a Juvenile Hurdle in France he […]

Early Season Eyecatchers!

2017-07-15T11:59:46+01:00December 21st, 2016|

I decided that I wouldn’t include winners in this list otherwise the likes of Altior (Nicky Henderson), Buveur D’Air (Nicky Henderson), Frodon (Paul Nicholls) and Cap Soleil (Fergal O’Brien) would have made the list. I strongly recommend looking out for the last named Mare as I thought she was an incredibly impressive TOP RATED winner on debut!

I therefore have looked for horses that have been beaten and hopefully highlighted some that you have either forgotten about or didn’t see yourself. One For Arthur – 5th in the Becher Chase @ Aintree One For Arthur ran a career best when 5th in the […]

How Trainers and Owners could and should be using our Ratings

2017-07-15T11:59:52+01:00October 19th, 2016|

As well as punters and professional gamblers using our ratings, we suggest that Trainers and Owners should also be using our ratings. We are in the position to be able to provide 5 day declarations to owners and trainers in ratings format.

This means Trainers and Owners can find out where their horses are rated and if they are multiple entered they can assess to find the race that is the weakest or suits them the most.

Today we have had a look at the Cheltenham card on Friday and Saturday and also the Aintree card for Sunday.

Shantou Village

We shall start off with one of our National Hunt Horses to […]

Cheltenham Festival Part IV – Championship Chases

2017-07-15T12:00:13+01:00February 12th, 2016|

In this part we have looked at the Championship Chase races of the Queen Mother Champion Chase, The Ryanair Chase and the Cheltenham Gold Cup.

Champion Chase

Un De Sceaux is a short priced odds on favourite and probably wins this race if he gets round however 2 falls on CV are the concern.

Un De Sceaux won the Arkle Chase last year at the Cheltenham Festival and ended his season winning the Ryanair Chase at Punchestown over 2 miles. He returned this season with the Champion Chase in mind and ran in the Grade 1 Paddy Power Chase at Leopardstown but ran a bit keenly and fell at the 2nd last. Many […]

Cheltenham Festival Part III – Championship Hurdles

2017-07-15T12:00:15+01:00February 11th, 2016|

In this part we look at the Championship Hurdle races. All 3 look to have favourites that could be very hard to beat.

Champion Hurdle

This race revolves all around Faugheen and he has been priced up accordingly with all of his rivals looking to be aimed at placing behind him.

Faugheen is the reigning champion having won this race last year having previously won the Neptune Novices Hurdle the year before. Having been unbeaten at the beginning of the season it was a huge shock when he was turned over by his stablemate Nichols Canyon at Punchestown in the Morgiana Hurdle in a race in which Nichols Canyon was allowed to make […]
