National Hunt 2009/10: 15 Horses You Need On Your Side…

As the flat season winds down, dear reader, it's almost time for the big guns of jump racing to flex their muscles. And, in celebration of all that is good about National Hunt racing, I've got fifteen horses for you to keep very much on the right side of this winter.

These horses are not your Kauto Stars or Katchits. I think you could pick those out for yourself. No, these are genuine bona fide dark ones, some of which you'll know; and some of which I'm confident you won't.

This list of horses - which is a must for anyone considering entering any of the many fantasy stable / Ten To Follow competitions - comes to you courtesy of TrainerTrackStats, and is part of their great giveaway offer in the run-up to the official launch of TTS, next Monday.

As I say, it's a great aid for Ten To Follow players, and indeed the author is a former top 20 finisher in that competition, and can also include a Scoop 6 win in his impressive punting CV.

Now there is a slight catch this time... If you went and downloaded Flat Racing Profiles yesterday, you'll know that you didn't have to do anything except click the link to get that. That was a complete 'no strings' summat for nowt offer, to enable you to back the best trends horses for the last six weeks of the season.

But this time, if you want the National Hunt fifteen to follow, you WILL have to provide your email address. Please don't worry about this. You're signing up to my best mate Gavin's list, and I promise that he will never abuse that. He will, though, send you a couple more emails over the next few days to tell you about more top quality freebies.


I hope you think this is a fair trade - if not, just don't go to the page. Fair enough? 😉

As those of you who have been reading my ramblings for any length of time will know, I never pitch crap. I (and my brilliant review team) look at scores of systems and review many of those. If they're bunk, we say they're bunk.

And when it comes to freebies, most of the free stuff in this game is free for a reason (see 'bunk' above!). But not these giveaways. These are designed to showcase the research brains behind TTS and similar products (like Flat Racing Profiles), and I'm immensely proud to have been directly associated with both products. I know many of you consider them to be the best stuff out there as well.

Anyway, enough of my sycophantic and self-congratulatory bluster... Just go and get some more great free stuff, courtesy of Geegeez, and my mates in the game!


Note: If you already signed up yesterday, you should have received an email to tell you where to go to get the rest of the free stuff. (Remember to check your spam or junk folders if you haven't seen this - the email is from Gavin, and is entitled 'Your next freebie'...)


Playing catch up somewhat this week (it seems that way every week at the moment!), and I have to report news of Baggsy, who ran on Monday in a fillies' maiden over seven furlongs at Kempton.

The race looked pretty hot on paper (1000 Guineas winner Ghanaati finished 3rd on debut in the same heat last year), and Baggsy ran a spirited race full of promise. Sent off at 66/1, she traveled quite well and stayed on at the one pace when she came under pressure. Although beaten around ten lengths at the line, she's unlikely to ever race against horses this good again, and will have plenty of winning chances over the winter.

If you're interested in learning more about Baggsy, click the 'Geegeez Racing Club' link at the top of this page.

Obvious, for her part, has been given a handicap rating of just 55, which she should be able to win off. Unfortunately, she got a little sore in her shoulders after running on the firm ground at Warwick last time, and she'll need a couple more weeks before returning to the track. But, with going, trip and class of opposition all likely to be much more in her favour, we'd be hopeful of a significantly improved showing.

That's all for today - I'll be back tomorrow with more news on TrainerTrackStats (and my favourite freebie of the week!). If you want to hear about that straight from the horse's mouth, click the link below and sign up to join the VIP Lounge...


Pip pip!


p.s. If you've already got Flat Racing Profiles and/or the 15 to follow manuals, leave a comment below and let other people know whether you think they're worth the... erm... no money you paid for them! 😉

    2 questions.

    1. i couldnt find anything about 15 horses to follow from the link you provided, even after signing up for extras.

    2. on the horse profiles for 2009, why those particular horses?
    what so special about them ?

    • Matt Bisogno says:

      Hi Tom

      When you sign up for the extras, you’ll receive an email asking you to confirm you want to receive the extras (daft, I know, but that’s the law). Once you confirm that, you’ll receive all download instructions by return. Sorry it’s so convoluted.

      On the second question, they are special only inasmuch as the author believes that they will perform with merit this season and, if followed throughout the season, are likely to generate a profit from backing them.

      Hope that clarifies.

  2. Chris says:

    I don’t think the VIP Lounge has been updated as it’s only showing yesterday’s freebie.

    • Matt Bisogno says:

      Please hit your refresh button Chris – I can categorically confirm it’s been updated (I’ve just checked!!!)


  3. paul says:

    Hi Matt
    Thanks for all of this stuff, now I wouldn’t be the brightest kid on the block but I have signed up but can not find this vip lounge anywhere.
    all the best

  4. Andrew says:

    Hey Matt, regarding TTS, is it similar to FRP with selections posted daily, or is it a statistical database that you have to interpret yourself to come up with your own selections?

    • Matt Bisogno says:

      Hi Andrew

      It’s similar to FRP with daily selections, only with an added bonus, which I’ll share with you (and everyone else who’s interested!) tomorrow. 😉


  5. Rupert Nicholson says:

    Hi Matt,
    I haven’t looked yet although I’m going to. 15 horses not to lay perhaps…!
    A further small congratulatory word or two – according to an email I had the other day (from a company who try to give advice on boosting income ) the links you give in your email have been done the RIGHT way, with three clear chances for readers to click your link as they scroll down the page. Their argument was that there are a lot of companies out there who send out sales garb with flashy ‘look at me’ graphics but which don’t make it easy for readers to go on to the next stage… readers then give up or wander around to see how to order!
    Your email is precisely how they say it really should be done!

    • Matt Bisogno says:

      Thanks Rupert – as you’ll know, having read my stuff for a while, I write freely about the thing we all love: horse racing.

      The marketing stuff is both accidental and incidental… 😉


    • Matt Bisogno says:

      Hi Derek

      To clarify:

      From the geegeez page, click the link. This will take you to the TTS page. There, please sign up in the box provided. Once you’ve done this, you’ll receive an email. Please check your spam folder (especially as you are an AOL user – very bad service provider in my opinion. I have major problems with email deliverability from them!), where you should find an email requesting you confirm your signup.

      Once you do this, you’ll receive a further email with all the details you require.

      It is the law to perform this ‘double opt in’ (i.e two confirmations before you can get what you requested). It is a most bizarre world we live in where one needs two confirmation emails before receiving something one has requested; and yet most people no longer answer their landline telephones due to constant unsolicited spam calls, and the government does nothing at all about it!

    Hi, Matt! Once again, thanks for the Freebies. Its hard to believe TTS is out again for the NH season! I discovered you and Gavin( I sound like Simon Cowell!) in Easter 2009 amd have really enjoyed your advice, ratings and general banter. Lang may yer lum reek!(as we say in Scotland!)Translation: More power to your elbow!

    • Matt Bisogno says:

      Thanks a lot John – very nice of you to say so. As for my lum reeking, well I’ll assume that’s not a typo on lum… !


  7. bob marsden says:

    hi matt ive had your profiles and yes readers of this i can honestly say they are worth the money i paid you …..when are your next profiles ready to go i want to be one of the first in queue.. thanks matt lots of luck ………yours in sport bob marsden

  8. Chris says:

    Hi Matt, sorry to be a pain, but the refresh button did nothing to update the VIP lounge, it still shows the Flat freebie. I particularly follow NH racing as opposed to flat so would be interested in the 15. Cheers.

  9. lockerdave says:
