Irish Point Notes, Week 6

Irish Point Notes, Week 6

Irish Point Notes, by Seattle Dancer Week 6  Maralin, Co. Down  4yo maiden: Our old friends in Dunraven Stud (home of Brian Boru) are also standing another Coolmore National Hunt cast-off stallion in Bach here since 2011 and he sired the winner of this maiden in Baby Bach trained by Stuart Crawford. It’s hard to […]

Paddy Power Gold Cup Preview, Trends, Tips The first big race of the National Hunt season proper is the Paddy Power Gold Cup – the Mackeson as it used to be known. Run at Cheltenham over two and a half miles (and about another 100 metres) of the Old Course, which is currently riding soft. […]

The Importance of Course Form at Cheltenham’s Open Meeting

Racing fans have three days of excellent sport to look forward to at the home of jump racing, starting this afternoon at 1.15. Finding winners is sure to be challenging, so I set my mind – and the excellent horseracebase database query tool – to the job of assisting me in the task. Specifically I […]

Stat of the Day, 11th November 2014

Stat of the Day, 11th November 2014 I know how this will sound, and fair enough, but I really was torn between two 16/1 shots yesterday. In the end, I sided with the heavy ground form of Alpha Victor, who could only manage fourth up at Carlisle. You’ve probably already guessed that the other on […]

An eye-catching headline today, because I suspect if you’re not a Gold subscriber you might not be getting all you can from geegeez. And I don’t mean all you can get if you subscribe: you’ve probably seen some of the posts about the cool time-saving, big-priced-winner-getting stuff inside of Gold. But geegeez has always been […]

Irish Point Notes, Week 5

2 November 2014 – Grennan, Co. Kilkenny Compiled by Seattle Dancer I attended this fixture held in a natural amphitheatre by the banks of the river Nore with the ruins of Grennan Castle looking on forlornly. I always like to walk the track at any meeting I attend and this track has fairly sharp bends […]

Double Dutch, 10th November 2014

Double Dutch, 10th November 2014 We took the brave man’s route on Saturday, and were handsomely rewarded. Not only did the double cop, but it was the longer priced selection in both races and, glazing the gateau, both skidded in the market like greased up speed skaters! The bottom line was a very healthy 44.5/1 […]

Stat of the Day, 10th November 2014

Stat of the Day, 10th November 2014 We beat the market again on Saturday without getting paid out as Jack Dexter was hammered from our early 11/4 into 15/8, but ran a listless race to finish just fourth behind Aetna. He’s had a few chances – from me, at least – this season, and Jack […]

Double Dutch, 8th November 2014

Double Dutch, 8th November 2014 The key to winning at backing horses is the elimination of fancied runners. By doing that, we put the market in our favour and can isolate value against what we consider to be ‘the hound’. Yesterday, I got that wrong. Well, actually, I got it right, and then wrong. In […]

Stat of the Day, 8th November 2014

Stat of the Day, 8th November 2014 It was a bit heavier than I’d hoped for at Fontwell yesterday and, in the circumstances, Midnight Belle did well to hang on for third. She travelled like the winner but just couldn’t go through the deep ground at the death. Lucky then that we took the coward’s […]

Saturday TV Racing Preview, 8th November 2014

It’s the last day of the flat season, and the day the jumps season kicks up a notch too. Channel 4 has it all covered from a televisual perspective, and in this post I’ll take a look at the two most interesting races on the Wincanton card, starting with the… 2.40 Badger Ales Trophy (Listed Handicap […]

Double Dutch, 7th November 2014

Double Dutch, 7th November 2014 We got through what I considered the trickier leg yesterday, as Nexius gave us 5/2 rolling on to the top of the market in a novices’ hurdle. Alas, when Hurricane’s Girl tumbled at the fourth we looked a bit exposed, and when Leaderofthedance took it up between the last two […]
