Posted by Paul Moon in Blog | Leave a comment

Trends at York proving very profitable

The Racing Horse found two winners from four races at the York Meeting on Day One (5/2 and 4/5), plus a combination tricast and a second choice winner (4/1) making it a profitable day. Day Two provided even better results with two more winners (5/2 and 15/2) plus a HUGE COMBINATION TRICAST with SPs of 9/2, 16/1 and 8/1. The Tricast paid £567.56 and the Trifecta £609.80. The Exacta paid £80 and the CSF £75.26). We have no news of anyone getting the big one but congratulations to DavidJ for picking up the Exacta.

Today we have more trends and advised nominations. We are a little behind with news and updated results and will post later today...

STRINGS OF LIFE overcame inexperience to make a winning start at Newmarket last month, and she's a potentially useful filly in the making. It's hard not to have been impressed with Lily Agnes winner No Lippy, who's shown a really likeable attitude on both her starts, while Cotubanama, On The Stage and Carrie's Vision all have the potential for better.

SHEIKHA REIKA laid positive foundations as a 2-y-o and built on those exploits to make an encouraging return at Newmarket last month, scoring with a bit in hand. The return to slightly further will hold no fears and she can take the step up in grade in her stride. Lowther winner Threading seemed ill at ease both tries at Newmarket and is not written off here. Awesometank can also feature.

The Racing Horse Verdict

STRADIVARIUS is a highly likeable colt who showed vast improvement throughout last year and, while a slight drop back in trip in a relatively small field isn't absolutely ideal for his return, he should have enough quality to grind his way to the front before he returns to the top level. Desert Skyline is another stayer to keep on side in 2018 and Max Dynamite has to be respected given his class.

The Racing Horse Verdict:

THUNDERING BLUE has some strong handicap form to his name and, having very much caught the eye on return at Epsom recently, he is fancied to prove himself on a competitive mark under Andrea Atzeni. Valcartier also caught the eye on his reappearance and is interesting, ahead of Titus.

The Racing Horse Verdict

1st: TITUS 8/1  2nd: VALCARTIER 9/2  3rd: KINGS GIFT 11/1

Proven mathematical laws are the governing force of horse racing betting. Consequently every bet we place is conceived then predicated from statistical analysis protected by a maths-based edge with perceived value attached. Our formula is simple because we are yet to be convinced that a complication of a system is proportional to profit. So what do we mean by a maths-based edge? It means finding something with a solid mathematical core, something historically profitable and something that is unlikely to change or suffer fatigue going forward. Then, if we can filter negative influences from the original proposal and provide a sound rationale for doing so, we can claim that betting edge.


The absolute key to success in betting is the ability to identify value bet situations where the odds available are greater than the true chance of winning and then to have the discipline to methodically bet only when these situations arise. If this is done the laws of mathematics and probability dictate that in the long term, you will make a profit.
