Quick-Fire National Hunt Thoughts

National Hunt Season 2020/2021 Quick-Fire Thoughts from Liam

I’m going to try and record lots of these types of videos highlighting horses and races to keep an eye on as well some interesting thoughts or angles with the ratings and suggested targets for some horses. I will try and keep the videos to less than 15 minutes so you can listen to it on your commute to work or just before bed or even in the bath!

Liam’s Horses To Follow – National Hunt 20/21 Season

Nicky Henderson

Shishkin is arguably the most boring horse in this list as it’s not like people didn’t see him win the Supreme Novices Hurdle. At the beginning of last season, I highlighted Shishkin in my Horses To Follow and highlighted the Supreme Novices Hurdle as the target. Honestly though my confidence waned during the season not in his ability but I was convinced Nicky Henderson was campaigning him with the Neptune Novices Hurdle as the target. The step up in trip and finishing strongly at Huntingdon still suggested to me that he will be in the intermediate […]

3 Out Of 4 Grand National’s predicted by a Statistical Algorithm!

Not just any old algorithm, it was the RatingTheRaces ratings algorithm!!!

So how on earth does an algorithm, achieve this? Well, as many of you know statistics can be used to predict a lot of things, and in horse racing we can generate A LOT of statistics. Fun fact – did you know the human brain can only consider a maximum of 4 parameters. I know. Stunned. Me too. We all feel smarter than that, but apparently, we simply are not. However, whilst an algorithm does have limitations in terms of numbers of parameters, it is far, far greater […]

National Hunt Horses to Follow – 2016/2017

Avenir D’Une Vie
Avenir D’Une Vie ran in 6 NHF races between November 2015 and April 2016 winning twice and finishing 2nd once. He was thought good enough to contest both the Cheltenham Champion Bumper where he finished 7 lengths 12th and finished 5th in Irish Champion Bumper at Punchestown. At Cheltenham he turned into the straight travelling ominously well but found very little and this could have been down to the ground. Lavirco progeny have just a 7% strike rate on good going which he encountered at Cheltenham compared to a 14% strike rate on soft going and an even better 28% strike rate on heavy. Lavirco progeny also generally […]
