Posted by Paul Moon in Blog | Leave a comment

The racing at the Newmarket July Meeting Day 1 kicks off with The Kingdom of Bahrain Trophy. The Racing Horse has all the trends to help our members find those winners! Members know how valuable this profiling is in combination with their own thought processes. If the member is unsure they can follow our betting advice!

The first race was originally a handicap race over 1m6f175y and was upgraded to Listed status in 1990. The name of the race was changed in 1991 to the Bahrain Trophy and in 2006 the distance was cut to 1m 5f. The race then gained Group 3 status in 2009. Frankie Dettori has won the first two named races 10 times in total and an extraordinary record!

Raheen House (7/2) won the race in 2017 


First Eleven looked a Group horse in the making when unlucky not to win the King George V Stakes (Handicap) at Royal Ascot 3 weeks ago and can provide John Gosden with a sixth win in this event. Loxley was impressive when making a winning return here and has more improvement in him, while this represents a drop in class for Giuseppe Garibaldi.


1st: GUISEPPE GARIBALDI 7/2 (finished 3rd)  2nd: LOXLEY 4/1 (finished 2nd) 3rd: FIRST ELEVEN 3/1

Cardsharp (8/1) won the race in 2017


Legend Of War's participation in the Coventry would have made for an even more compelling race, disappointing that he missed it due to a minor infection, but he can build on his huge debut performance to maintain his unbeaten record here at the expense of another highly talented sort in Advertise. Konchek should relish this trip and shouldn't be completely dismissed.




3.00 Newmarket: Bet365 Handicap (Class 2) 6f

12/12: Didn’t win last time out (100%)

..3/12: Ridden by David Probert (25%)
..0/12: Winning favourites (0%)

Ekhiyaar (13/2) won the race in 2017


Several to consider but JAWWAAL and Tribal Quest stand out from both a handicapping and potential point of view. The latter isn't passed over lightly but Jawwaal was arguably unlucky not to prevail in the big York handicap won by Encrypted and, therefore, is potentially well treated off the same mark. Encrypted should again be involved, while the Hannon duo, Buridan and Embour, also merit respect.


1st: FOXTROT LADY 10/1 (WINNER)  2nd: KIMIFIVE 33/1  3rd: EMBOUR 12/1


This is a race named after Alexandra Of Denmark who became the Princess Of Wales in 1863.

3.35 Newmarket: Princess Of Wales's Arqana Racing Club Stakes (Group 2) 1m4f

14/16: Aged 4yo or older (4yos have won 8 of last 11) (88%)
14/16: Had 2 or more runs that season (88%)
14/16: Previously won over at least 1m4f (88%)
13/16: Winners from stall 5 or lower (81%)
11/14: Winners had already won over the same distance (79%)
11/16: Won at 8/1 or shorter (69%)
11/16: Won a Group 1 or 2 race before (69%)
10/16: Unplaced in their previous race (63%)

..5/16: Trained by Sir Michael Stoute (won it 9 times in total) (31%)
..4/16: Ridden by Ryan Moore (25%)
..3/16: Won by trainer Mark Johnston (19%)
..2/14: Top rated horse (14%)
..1/14: Favourite has won (7%)

25/1 was the highest winning SP and 2/1 the lowest in the last 14 years, the average winning SP in the last 10 years is 9/1
Big Orange won the race in 2015 & 2016
Hawkbill (7/2) won the race in 2017


MIRAGE DANCER hasn’t seen to best effect at Royal Ascot, and given he has the potential to rate higher still, he’s taken to enhance Sir Michael Stoute's excellent record in this race. Barsanti is a thoroughly likeable sort who should continue to give a good account of himself, while Best Solution will find things a bit easier back in Group 2 company.


1st; DURETTO 25/1 (finished 3rd beaten half a length)  2nd: BARSANTI 9/2  3rd: BEST SOLUTION 8/1 (WINNER)

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.
