Eight Cheltenham Festival Takeaways: Notebook Horses

Notebook Horses From Cheltenham

As the Cheltenham Festival gradually begins to fade from the memory, racing writer and broadcaster Rory Delargy (@helynsar on twitter) offers an octet to keep in mind for the coming month, and early part of next season. Trackers and/or notepads at the ready...

Tuesday:

The Young Master (6th - Ultima Handicap Chase):
The early-season vibes weren't terribly positive about the prolific son of Echo of Light, and he was relatively weak in the market when falling in the Becher Chase on his belated return (beaten at the time). He predictably made no impact in the Cleeve Hurdle on his next start, but looked a picture in the Cheltenham paddock, and shaped as if back in good order in finishing sixth behind Un Temps Pour Tout. He raced in the mid-division along the inside, jumping accurately on the whole, and while he struggled a little with the pace, was able to dispute third at the top of the hill before being passed by half a dozen rivals on the downhill run to the third last fence. He looked sure to drop away from that point, but rallied to re-pass a few from the final turn, and he now looks like he needs a stamina test to be fully effective. It's easy to conclude that he doesn't handle the Grand National fences, but it's a lot more likely that he's been trained to peak again in the spring, and either the National or the Bet365 Gold Cup would be viable targets. As far as the latter is concerned, it should be noted that the handicapper has dropped him 2lb to a mark of 148, the same as when winning last April.

Powersbomb (4th - Close Brothers Novices' Handicap Chase)
Brian McMahon's chaser has caught the eye on a couple of occasions this year, rallying in some style after propping badly at the second-last fence at Leopardstown on his penultimate outing, and again looking a bit better than the bare result last week. In contrast to Leopardstown, he was held up by Jamie Codd (deputising for regular rider Mikey Fogarty), and made mistakes at the second and fourth fences. That made his chance look remote, and he was again untidy when making ground at the third last. Shaken up thereafter, he snapped back onto the bridle, and made sharp progress to get close at the turn, but had to race wide as a result, and while he got to the front between the last two, he was looking vulnerable when getting into  the bottom of the last. That he kept on for fourth was commendable as he looked to find the trip stretching him, but I spoke to Jamie straight afterwards, and he was unhappy with his ride and admitted that he'd hit the front too soon. In saying that, he is clearly effective at shorter, and would be of interest in the Red Rum at Aintree, which is usually run at a frenetic pace. He's been raised 4lb to 134 in Ireland, incidentally, but ran off 138 at Cheltenham, and there ought to be a race for him closer to home if that's what McMahon, who trains near Ennis in Co. Clare, would prefer.

Wednesday:

Scoir Mear (5th - Coral Cup)
Scoir Mear was my only ante-post bet at the Festival, so it was galling to see him finish fifth when most firms paid five places on the day (yet another reason to throw into the pot marked "why ante-post betting is dead"). But that doesn't begin to tell the story, as Tom Mullins' grey might easily have won with better luck/judgement in running. Jumped off at the rear, he was never more than a length ahead of the back marker for the first half of the contest, and despite travelling sweetly, still sat sixteenth as the field jumped the penultimate flight. In a strongly run affair this can potentially be an advantage (who can forget What's Up Boys and Big Strand coming from the clouds to win this race?), but the pace of the Coral Cup steadied down before halfway and the leaders weren't falling in a hole by any means. Switched to the inside on the final turn by David Mullins, he found a pocket of weakening horses, and had to take back and around to get a clear passage. Jumping the last in a dispute of thirteenth place, he again had to take evasive action to avoid Kalondra on landing, before flashing home for fifth. The negatives are that he wasn't always fluent at his hurdles, and did show a tendency to lug to his left, which explains the second piece of interference he met, but the positives far outweigh those niggles, and while Supasundae deserves full credit for winning, Scoir Mear looked second best on the day, and his form all season keeps getting franked. The Irish handicapper has raised him by a solitary pound for his effort at Cheltenham, and there must be a valuable prize in him before the season is through. On an incidental note, I was told on the eve of the race that the 5-y-o had not travelled over well, and didn't eat up on arrival. That wasn't the line given on the day by his trainer, but it came from a reliable source, and would make the performance even more meritorious if true.

Diable de Sivola (5th – Fred Winter Juvenile Hurdle)
The Fred Winter shaped like a very strong race for all the winner, Flying Tiger, was quite a big price. Runner-up Divin Bere is clearly a big talent, and Nietzche brought a solid profile and very useful flat form to the table. That trio should pay their way, but the one to take out of the race is the winner's stablemate, Diable de Sivola, who finished best of all in fifth, having been no closer than thirteenth jumping the last. It's dangerous to constantly mark up horses who finish fast from a poor position, and in doing so, it's important to establish why they found themselves in that position in the first place. In the case of Lizzie Kelly's mount, it's not entirely clear how, but he suddenly lost a good position on the run from the second and third flights, and was massively compromised by that scenario. Television pictures of that part of the race are very poor (wide angle shot with the low sun making detail hard to pick out), but it's likely that he got squeezed out and lost momentum, or simply failed to handle the downhill run at that point. Either way, he turned into the back straight in a good position, and somehow lost that spot completely by the time the field reached the fourth. Getting back into contention in a congested field was always going to be difficult, and Kelly had to wait until the final turn before cutting back to the inside and passing rivals. It's to his credit that he almost made the frame from an impossible position. He was reported by Nick Williams to have needed his prep run at Doncaster, and an earlier second to Defi du Seuil here looks better in retrospect, all of which suggests his unchanged mark of 132 is there to be exploited.

Thursday:

Top Notch (2nd - JLT Novices' Chase)
Pretty much all the talk after the JLT was about the brilliance of Yorkhill, or indeed the brilliance of his jockey, who somehow managed to make this headcase look a straightforward conveyance in winning, and he's as short as 8/1 for next year's Gold Cup, and the same price for the Ryanair. On the other hand, Top Notch goes through an impressive first season over fences with barely a ripple; already a Grade 1 winner over the bigger obstacles, he could arguably be called an unlucky loser here, as he lost considerably more ground with a rare mistake at the second last than he was beaten, and his jumping was an absolute joy to behold in the main, as it was when he won at Sandown. That mistake rather took the gloss off the finish, as it threatened to be a classic with both he and the winner travelling strongly at the time. The game is, as we're often reminded, all about jumping, so marking horses up for late errors is a dangerous precedent, but this looked a case of the rider needing to ask for a big jump at a crucial point and opting to sit still instead. Top Notch isn't one to stand outside the wings, but he has more scope than he's given credit for, as he showed when gaining ground with a brave leap at the final fence, and in my opinion he would have made Yorkhill pull out all the stops if he'd been asked to produce a similar leap at the previous fence. As such, his price of 16/1 for next year's Ryanair seems rather insulting, as that race looks by far his most likely long-term target. In the short term, the Manifesto at Aintree should be right up his street, with or without Yorkhill.

Ballymalin (7th - Pertemps Final)
One of the features of the week was how steadily run many of the handicaps were, although the Pertemps Final was an exception, and a couple of those who raced towards the front throughout can be marked up for their efforts. The bold-jumping Sutton Place looks a horse for the future, with fences beckoning next season, but if I had to pick just one to choose for the immediate future it would be Ballymalin, whose stable sent seventeen runners to the meeting but came home empty-handed. I'm not one to read too much into such figures given how hard it is to win any race at Cheltenham, and it was tactics rather than the form of his yard which saw Ballymalin out of the frame. All three of the Twiston-Davies runners took turns in the lead and the son of Presenting fared much better in the end than either Splash of Ginge or Arctic Gold, and five of those who beat him came from significantly further back in the field. This was just his second start in handicaps having finished third behind race favourite Impulsive Star in his qualifier at Exeter, and while he's clearly got the ability to run well off his mark (unchanged since Exeter), I envisage him being stepped up to Grade 1 company at Aintree, where he'd not look out of place in the Sefton Novices' Hurdle, a race won by the same connections with Ballyoptic last year. Nigel Twiston-Davies also trained King's Road (1999) and Pettifour (2008) to land the Sefton, both of whom arrived under the radar to some degree.

Friday:

Renneti (8th - County Hurdle)
Some horses find their way into your notebook with a mental asterisk next to their names to remind you not to be too easily fooled, and the temptation is to categorize the quirky Renneti like that.  He certainly hasn't looked in love with the game in the past year, but when on song he is very close to top class, and he had nothing go his way in a bizarre renewal of the County Hurdle, with Wakea allowed to set up a massive lead despite not exactly scorching off. As a result, the race only took shape on the long run to the final flight, and the form cannot be taken literally. Renneti would have preferred a bit more ease in the ground, for all the track was watered liberally overnight, and he stays beyond two miles, needing the emphasis on stamina at this sort of trip. Like Labaik on Tuesday, he set off quite sweetly at the back of the field, but his position soon became an issue, and his chance of winning evaporated when the field allowed the leader to do his own thing.  That said, he made up considerable ground from the penultimate obstacle, and finished about as fast as it was possible given the majority in front of him were also trying to quicken from the same juncture. He's never one about which to take short odds, and ideally needs a strongly-run race on soft ground to bring out his best, so opportunities to back him may be limited by conditions, but he's more than capable of making a mockery of his current mark, and could even get into the mix in something like the Aintree Hurdle.

Constantine Bay (4th - Albert Bartlett)
The Albert Bartlett was another race run at a much more pedestrian tempo than is the norm, and that certainly suited the winner, who has the turn of foot of a high-class flat performer, something he is likely to prove again in the summer. Those who got close to Penhill therefore deserve great credit, and while Constantine Bay was beaten over fifteen lengths in fourth, he was the biggest eyecatcher of the beaten horses having been stopped in his tracks when The World's End fell in front of him at the second last (Penhill also hampered in the incident, while the faller is also interesting for the future having moved up to dispute the lead at the point he capsized). He was knocked back to a poor ninth at that point, and did really well to stay on for fourth from that point. He is clearly a game and thorough stayer as he showed when winning at Doncaster on his previous outing, and it should be pointed out that he was at full stretch coming down the hill, so clearly wouldn't want a tactical race at this trip. But there are lots of options both this spring and into next season for one who has shown his blend of gameness and stamina, and he's another who appeals as a decent staying chaser in the making.

Trials Day as a Source of Festival Winners

Ask any Cheltenham member what the course’s best day’s racing outside of the Festival is, and you’re likely to find the Saturday of November’s Open Meeting nominated by far the most often, writes Rory Delargy.

While that’s probably true in terms of excitement and atmosphere, it’s a dubious claim in terms of the number of subsequent Festival winners who run there. The Open Meeting as a whole tends to get horses launched high up the ante-post leader boards, but the old golf adage is drive for show and putt for dough: those who peak too far from the track’s showpiece fixture have a poor overall strike rate in March.

On the other hand, those who have their last prep run on late January’s Trials Day tend to fare much better, which may be no surprise given the timing. It often comes up in discussion that horses who have run in the calendar year have a much better record than those coming back from longer layoffs, usually because the latter group have had a less than smooth preparation that has stopped them getting an appropriate prep race.

In recent years, Willie Mullins has been bucking this trend (in lots of ways), and the Master of Closutton seems to give his novices a specific number of runs before establishing their place in the pecking order. It’s rarely a negative for one from this yard to have less experience than seems ideal, or to return from a lengthier break than would be expected. He’s a law unto himself, and should be treated as such.

91-150 116 3 15 0.34 -£991.30

 

As you can see from the above, there’s a considerable advantage to having had a prep run in January, although that is clearly affected by the vagaries of the racing calendar. The programme book provides the best opportunities for horses to have a prep run within two months of the big meeting, and those who either haven’t been ready to run, or have had to get a late outing in to ensure fitness/qualification, tend to struggle. This isn’t meant to be mind-blowing, of course, it’s merely common sense.

There are two other obvious factors which punters can use to their advantage in March. Strike rates tail off badly as SP increases beyond 20/1 (bookmakers give little away and most 33/1 shots should be ten times that price), and that is also the case with age, with it being very difficult to win with horses who are regressive and/or fully exposed. The caveat here is with outstanding champions, who remain vulnerable as they get older, but can still outclass their opponents in certain circumstances.

Finally, a Trials Day prep run is about fine tuning, not getting back to square one, so those who run poorly/fail to complete should be ignored. Using horses who completed and were beaten twenty lengths or less seems a fair measure.

That leaves us with a list of horses aged eight or younger, who prepped for Cheltenham on Trials Day by finishing within 20 lengths of the winner, and are likely to go off no bigger than 20/1 on the day. Given those filters, here is the performances of such horses in the last ten seasons.

There is a notion that very soft ground on Trials Day should mean that contrasting conditions in March should render results invalid. That’s illogical, though, as several of those who qualify above would have been running on unsuitable ground in January, and could therefore show improved form come March.

Horses don’t run here primarily because the ground is suitable, but because the timing and the track are suitable, and that should be borne in mind. In 2015, Cole Harden, Irish Cavalier, The Druids Nephew and Peace And Co all improved on the form they showed on Trials Day when winning at the Festival on what was generally quicker ground. That’s an important consideration to look for, and is the reason why we shouldn’t just be following winners in such circumstances. The New One and Sprinter Sacre similarly showed markedly better form at the Festival when racing away from testing ground.

Finally, we shouldn’t just focus on the winners at the Festival, but also on the horses who were placed, as this is a measure of how robust the logic is. Winners and placed horses should be roughly in line, and a big differential between the two should be a warning sign as to how reliable the win percentage is.

By the same token, a poor win record allied to a bigger than usual place record should mean you look more kindly on those individual figures. Once again, this is not intended to be a system as such, but a general guide to which horses we should expect to be competitive at the Festival given their appearance this weekend. It may prove beneficial to concentrate on those who are unimpressive without being well beaten, and have a marked preference for better ground, as that remains the conditions most likely to be faced in seven weeks’ time.

Trainers Report: January 2016

Trainers Report January

January is a funny month in terms of the jumps calendar, with some of the big yards taking things particularly easy at a time when racing is either under threat from the weather, or the ground is particularly testing, writes Rory Delargy.

Running class horses now with the big spring festivals looming on the horizon is a dangerous business, with a punishing race taking time to get over. On the other hand, there are plenty who also need to gain much-needed experience if they are to deliver the goods on the big stage, so a total hiatus is not ideal either. The figures discussed below are for the 4-week period up to and including Wednesday 20th January, so do include the tail end of December.

Venetia Williams:

Runs 57 Wins 11 IV 1.67 A/E 1.20

It’s well established that Venetia Williams tends to thrive when the mud is flying, and while that is due in part to weight of numbers rather than an exceptionally high strike rate, she does certainly have something in her regime which bears fruit at times when endurance is at a premium. Unlike November, when she had plenty of winners after a lengthy absence but few with race fitness on their side, things have settled down now, and Venetia’s team are pretty much all running to form.

What is notable is that in the last four weeks she has had eleven wins from 57 runners over obstacles for a modest profit; and, moreover, of a dozen to have started at 3/1 or shorter, only one has finished out of the first three. There aren’t any fat profits to be had this year (so far), but the picture painted is one of a healthy yard producing consistent results, and now that the pattern has been established, it should continue until such times as the spring arrives and brings with it warm sunshine to dry the turf. That may be some time!

The worry with the stable is that with the horses providing the returns in the past few weeks now in the lap of the handicapper, the immediate future may be bleak for followers, and it seems best to stick with those making their seasonal returns, particularly those handicappers who may have gone off the boil last season.

 

Paul Nicholls:

Runs 39 Wins 5 IV 1.0 A/E 0.62

We looked at the modest performance of the Nicholls yard last month and asked whether his mantle might be in danger of slipping, although the conclusion was that the stable’s current strength was insufficient to compete at the usual high level. That is partly due to injuries to key horses as well as underperformance from some of the top chasers, with Nicholls rerouting big guns Silviniaco Conti, Saphir du Rheu and Ptit Zig to hurdles after the trio disappointed to varying degrees in their big tests over fences.

The fact that some talented chasers have either been sidelined (Dodging Bullets) or have failed to go on as expected is a worry, but we covered that in detail last month, and Nicholls has always shown his ability to produce something special from his youngsters, so there are bound to be bright spots in the months ahead.

Worth noting is that Nicholls has a strong team of young horses being prepared for a spring campaign, and I’d recommend looking at Harry Derham’s blog if you haven’t already done so – as well as unraced hurdlers such as Whispering Storm (fifth in a bumper for Adrian Maguire), there is also an update on Coral Cup winner Aux Ptits Soins, who could be yet another for Nicholls in the World Hurdle having had his chasing career delayed by sinus issues.

It’s been a stop-start season for the Ditcheat team, and the figures still don’t read well if taken over the last month. On the other hand, five winners from just eighteen runners over obstacles in January puts a fair bit of gloss on the overall figures, and February promises to be a rewarding month for the novices in particular, as a patient approach combines with a period when maiden hurdles are less competitive on the whole.

 

Philip Hobbs:

Your first 30 days for just £1

Runs 35 Wins 11 IV 2.44 A/E 1.38

Minehead-based Hobbs has benefited particularly from the patronage of Grahame and Diana Whateley, whose two-tone blue colours have been sported by the likes of Menorah, Captain Chris and Wishfull Thinking in recent seasons, and they have had a dozen horses in action this season for their main trainer, in addition to a few others with Anabel Murphy and Oliver Sherwood.  For his part, Hobbs has garnered eleven wins from those he trains for the Whateleys, and it looks a relationship sure to endure.

Numerically speaking, Hobbs is the season’s leading trainer, ahead of John Ferguson, and he sits second in the prizemoney table behind Paul Nicholls. He’s not been sitting on his laurels of late, either, with eleven winners from 35 runners in the last four weeks at a healthy strike rate of more than 31%. The yard’s rate of conversion is regularly around this mark, and Hobbs is rightly lauded as a shrewd placer of his horses.

Despite that, he can still produce winners at a considerably better rate than the market expects. Many of his best horses will be forced into top competition in the months ahead, which will see his tally suffer, but he should be followed over the next month or so while competition is thinner on the ground.

 

Nicky Henderson:

Runs 29 Wins 11 IV 2.95 A/E 1.33

It’s no surprise to see Nicky Henderson providing the highest strike rate of those sending out more than a dozen runners since the festive period, and the Seven Barrows handler is all about domination, boasting some of the wealthiest owners in the land, and able to cherry pick when and if his stars run. As a result, he’s no more than twelfth if the table was viewed in terms of number of runners, but the selective approach puts him joint top in terms of winners.

The highlight was probably the victory of Sprinter Sacre at Kempton, but he’s paraded a number of other Cheltenham contenders, with Altior, Polly Peachum, Ma Filleule, L’ami Serge and Vaniteux all strutting their stuff. That’s helped to bolster the strike rate, and while he does have a reputation for being frugal with his chasers, those jumping fences are hitting the mark more often than not. Unlike one or two excelling in the winter mud, Henderson’s record doesn’t tail off when the ground dries up, so he needs to be taken seriously whatever the weather brings.

 

Dan Skelton

Runs 29 Wins 2 IV 0.54 A/E 0.41

If there’s one trainer who has not enjoyed the holiday season, it’s Dan Skelton. He had a tremendous time of things in November, saddling eighteen winners from 81 runners to prove he was a growing force; but it’s possible that getting his team ready earlier than some of the big guns enabled him to steal a march.

Since then, the strike-rate has plummeted. Indeed, he’s had eleven horses sent off at 7/2 or shorter, but only one has emerged triumphant, and that as much as anything is a reason to tread carefully, for all his future prospects continue to look bright in the longer term.

 

**The data used above is for the period 26/12/2015 to 20/01/2016, and is for races over hurdles and fences only**

Is Paul Nicholls’ Star on the Wane?

A moderate start to December which has seen the eclipse of favourites in the Tingle Creek and Peterborough Chases has got tongues wagging about the strength of the Paul Nicholls operation, writes Rory Delargy. Are the doubters right to point to cracks in the façade, or is this merely another premature judgement on the country’s finest trainer of jumpers?

Hurdlers

The first thing to do is compare the yard’s record this month with previous campaigns, and it’s immediately clear that he’s actually ahead of schedule with his hurdlers, with his total of five winners from 23 runners over timber this month comparing favourably with recent seasons, both in terms of winners and strike rate – in 2013 he had five winners from 44 runners in the entire month, and three from 24 the following year.

Those stats have been helped by an across-the-card double on Wednesday from just a brace of runners, but such doubles are not rare and show the folly of assuming a stable is out of form.

Nicholls Hurdlers in December 2010-2014

YEAR RUNS WINS BETFAIR P/L BF ROI A/E
2010 18 4 -5.76 -32.01 0.83
2011 48 11 4.87 10.14 0.92
2012 29 7 2.21 7.63 1.05
2013 44 5 -20.36 -46.27 0.51
2014 24 3 -6.46 -26.9 0.49

 

2015 looks like being better than all but one of the above examples, and a couple of bizarre unseats, notably at Southwell the other day, have robbed him of at least one more winner, accepting that luck, either good or bad, will always have a part to play.

The figures don’t look so rosy when we look at the chasers in isolation, but the point to make before we move on to that aspect of the yard is that we can pretty much rule out sickness as an issue with the horses given that the yard is operating at a win and place strike rate of more than 50% with its hurdlers, a figure you will be unlikely to see if a yard is virus-affected.

Chasers

The table below shows that following Nicholls runners over fences at this time of the year is usually a fruitful pursuit, but the score for 2015 stands at a paltry two wins from 31 runs for the yard’s chasers, and it’s hard to work out why that might be. One explanation may come from the lack of performers in the 170+ bracket in the yard.

In recent years, we’ve had Silviniaco Conti, Master Minded, Neptune Collonges, Kauto Star, Poquelin, Woolcombe Folly, Tidal Bay, Al Ferof, Sanctuaire and Dodging Bullets all achieving that rating based on Racing Post figures. This season, only the currently sidelined Dodging Bullets can get a figure north of 165.

 

Nicholls Chasers in December 2010-2014

YEAR RUNS WINS BETFAIR P/L BF ROI A/E
2010 20 6 20.28 101.39 1.52
2011 43 8 -17.4 -40.47 0.87
2012 34 10 1.72 5.06 1.26
2013 46 15 45.13 98.11 1.48
2014 51 15 7.58 14.85 1.36

 

Saphir du Rheu was the Great White Hope for the stable this campaign, but he’s being rerouted to the World Hurdle, while Sound Investment, only fifth in the December Gold Cup at Cheltenham, is the best chaser to have run for the yard based on the numbers. That’s very unusual for Ditcheat squadron, and given Nicholls’ desire to make an impact on the biggest stage, a bunch of second-raters and novices aren’t going to plunder many major prizes in the short term.

 

Why the decline?

There is an underlying reason behind this decline in quality, and it has nothing to do with the trainer’s ability to get the best out of his horses (who would have put Old Guard down as a potential Champion Hurdler two months ago?). Rather, it seems to be because the big players are playing elsewhere.

There are twelve owners (or partnerships/syndicates etc) who have earned over £100,000 in prizemoney this season. Of those, only Old Guard’s connections are in Paul Nicholls’ camp, though Chris Giles and his Potensis horses have bullets to fire; and while he also trains a few for J P McManus, he’s very much a squad player for the “Sundance Kid”.

Your first 30 days for just £1

The megabucks owners, including those on the other side of the Irish Sea, are controlling more of the game, and snapping up horses which would once have been destined for the outskirts of Shepton Mallet. Gigginstown House Stud are picking the cream of the Irish point crop, while Rich Ricci has the mercurial Harold Kirk doing his bidding in France and elsewhere.

Ricci is based in the UK, but his horses are happy in County Carlow, and his decision to put one with Nicky Henderson is a signal of intent should he ever look to spread his load around.

Of those who kept the Ditcheat ship sailing merrily through the last two decades, Clive Smith has gone; John Hales remains, but has his best horse now with Dan Skelton; Paul Barber has greatly reduced his interests; leaving Andy Stewart as the yard’s biggest owner, not just in his famous black white and red silks, but as a partner in Old Guard whom he shares with others including Jeremy Kyle.

Kyle has been dragged on telly numerous times as some kind of saviour for the sport as a terrestrial television product, but it’s doubtful his investment will ever make the difference between success and failure for a yard with the history of Manor Farm. Nicholls needs to find new blood if he’s to challenge again for the trainer’s title he once annexed, and he needs to do it soon.

Time waits for no man, and while the fortunes of the stable remain reasonably solid, there is a host of young, impressive trainers making their mark. Harry Whittington unleashed another winning newcomer at Newbury in midweek, while Ben Pauling was also on the scoresheet, and the latter has been quietly building a foundation for success which he looks sure to build on considerably. Nicky Henderson’s former assistant is affable, knowledgeable and hard-working, and he’s set to make a major splash.

Dan Skelton has been tipped as a future champion despite setting up only eighteen months ago, and the number of quality ex-Flat horses available to the big yards has been reduced since John Ferguson turned his hand to training under Rules. The last-named is no threat to Nicholls’ dominance with chasers as yet, but it’s again interesting to note how the Ditcheat domination has been eroded.

Looking at the record of all trainers in UK non-handicap chases (essentially a measure of stable strength) since 2010 makes interesting reading:

 

Runners in non-handicap chases 2010-2014

TRAINER RUNS WINS S/R
NICHOLLS 598 202 33.78
HENDERSON 405 137 33.83
MCCAIN 362 88 24.31
HOBBS 275 70 25.45
KING 247 59 23.89
O’NEILL 233 49 21.03

 

It can be seen that Nicholls dominates the division by numbers of runners and winners, with only Nicky Henderson of the leading trainers even able to match his strike rate.

 

Runners in non-handicap chases 2015

TRAINER RUNS WINS S/R
NICHOLLS 119 34 28.6
PIPE 42 13 30.9
MULHOLLAND 28 10 35.7
HOBBS 40 9 22.5
LONGSDON 23 8 34.8
MOORE 25 8 32
KING 28 8 28.6

 

At first glance this looks like good news again – Nicholls has more than two and a half times as many winners in non-handicaps than his nearest rival, but that’s partly due to the massive fall off in horses sent chasing by Henderson. A close look at those seemingly toiling shows that five of the next six on the list are operating at a better percentage than the leader.

Essentially Nicholls is able to play the numbers game with his steeplechasers, but the resistance to his position of power is growing, and only an injection of fresh quality will fend them off for long.

All Weather Trip Droppers: A Profitable Angle?

AW TRIP DROPPERS – A PROFITABLE ANGLE?

A friend of mine swears blind that backing handicappers dropping in trip is like finding gold in the street, but it’s not something I’ve considered as a blanket strategy, for all I can see some merit to the practice, writes Rory Delargy. I quickly ran the numbers to determine how profitable AW handicappers were at certain trips if they had run at further than a mile in similar races last time out. I’ve used handicaps on the AW as a benchmark as we are essentially comparing like for like except for distance (if using turf vs AW, we’d have to consider stiffness of track and softness of the going as variables.

In the results below, Betfair profit/loss is to a £1 stake after 5% commission, and A/E is actual wins over expected wins based on market expectations. Figures show results for last ten years (2005-2015).

 

1.

Horses Who Raced Over 1m+ On Last Start (AW Handicaps Only)

           RUNS   WINS    BETFAIR P/L   BETFAIR ROI       A/E

5f       224         23           131.32                   58.62                    1.28

6f       550         52           40.98                     7.45                      1.07

7f      4509       501         510.12          11.31                 1.09                                       

1m     9612       1110       201.86                   2.10                      1.03

The results make interesting reading. Only fair strike rates for horses racing at 1m or shorter after a run over further, but there were profits to be had year in year out by backing those cutting back in trip. These figures improve when we ignore fillies and apply the figures to colts and geldings only, who tend to be more reliable.

It’s interesting what you find when you filter the results by finishing position on most recent start, with the strike rate generally higher in line with previous performance, but the P&L showing a loss for those who had won or been placed over further on their latest outing, presumably the result of being overbet due to conspicuously positive form figures. Backing those who were unplaced last time out (we can assume that for many the failure is due to a lack of stamina), and the figures look better – the table below is for colts and geldings who were unplaced on their most recent start at 1m+.

Colts & Geldings Who Were Unplaced Over 1m+ On Last Start (AW Handicaps Only)

RUNS    WINS    BETFAIR P/L       BETFAIR ROI       A/E

Your first 30 days for just £1

5f            156         15           98.52                     63.15                     1.22

6f            3430       38           150.87                   43.99                     1.33

7f            2406       218         149.51                   6.21                        1.10       

1m          4491       405         277.73                   6.18                        1.08

What is striking is that while plenty of profit comes from those running at 7f and 1m, the ROI is much higher for sprint trips, and that suggests that this is where the value lies. Again, it should be noted that the strike rate in such races is not overly high, but the prices seem to be more generous. My thinking is that most punters betting in a 6f race would prefer to choose a runner who had run well over a similar trip, rather than one which had run moderately over further. That sounds like a logical approach, but the results suggest that such horses are underbet on a regular basis. It’s also worth pointing out that backing such horses makes a profit at SP as well as at Betfair prices, which is encouraging.

I’ve decided to concentrate on races over 5 and 6 furlongs therefore, and am looking for any other means of distilling the profits further. Race class is worth looking at, and while the results in class 2 races are impressive, they come from a small sample (2 wins from 21 runs), with the most robust figures coming from Class 5 and 6 events, which make up the majority of winter AW cards. It’s also best to concentrate on the UK courses, so I’ve removed stats for both Dundalk and Laytown, the latter of which could hardly be deemed an AW track in any real sense.

3.

Colts & Geldings Over 5f/6f Who Were Unplaced Over 1m+ On Last Start (UK AW Handicaps Only)

RUNS    WINS    BETFAIR P/L       BETFAIR ROI       A/E

C5           107         16           96.18                     89.89                     1.65

C6           229         27           147.15                   64.26                     1.56

The most telling figures on our distilled chart is the A/E figure, which shows that for the races shown, those horses we have identified are winning races better than one and a half times more often than the market expects, which is an excellent indicator of future profitability, as is strike rates at or above 12%.

The criteria outlined above show a profit at all UK AW tracks, although the best figures come from Lingfield. On a related note, there are a few trainers who enjoy more than their share of winners when cutting back in trip in this fashion, with Mick Appleby, Dean Ivory, David Elsworth and John Jenkins all having positive profiles, so following their runners who are reverting to sprinting is an angle you should certainly consider.

 

Standing Starts Don’t Stand Up

STEEPLE CHASE, HURDLE RACE AND NATIONAL HUNT FLAT RACING

Walking round

5.1 Horses will be girthed up in the girthing up pen unless otherwise instructed by the Starter.

5.2 When all horses are girthed up and the Starter has mounted the rostrum, the horses will enter the course and must, where possible, walk around at least twenty-five yards back from the tape.

5.3 Horses girthed up on the course, as instructed by the Starter, must walk around at least twenty-five yards back from the start.

5.4 To avoid the Starter waiting unnecessarily, a Rider must tell the Starter if he is dropping in.

5.54 When the Starter wishes the horses to walk forward he will raise his flag to signify this to the riders. Once he has done so, the riders shall walk forward and take up a position ready to start the race. Until that time, no rider is permitted to walk up or take up a position.

 

Walking up 

6.1 Riders must listen to the Starter's instructions at all times during the procedure.

6.2 When the Starter wishes the horses to walk forward he will raise his flag to signify this to the Riders.

6.3 Horses in the front rank must walk or jig jog until the start is effected.

6.4 Horses at the rear may trot to catch up but must not overtake those in front or force those in front out of a walk.

6.5 Riders may be instructed to 'WAIT' or keep 'STEADY' as necessary by the Starter.

6.6 If the Starter instructs 'NO' then the race is not about to be started.

6.7 'No Sir' must only be used in an emergency situation.

6.8 The start will not be delayed if the Starter considers a Rider is holding up proceedings by trying to push in where there is no room.

6.9 A Rider who deliberately faces his horse backwards because he has missed his intended position will be reported to the Stewards.

6.10 If the field line up and commence to move forward before the Starter raises his flag, or where any horse approaches the start at faster than jig jog before the tape is released and the Starter's flag is dropped, the race will not be started. In this circumstance, the Starter may report to the Stewards any Rider he considers responsible.

7.1 The marker poles are the poles erected on either side of the course in front of the Starting Gate.

7.2 If, for whatever reason, the Starter has been unable to start the race before the runners reach the marker poles, Riders must pull up.

Your first 30 days for just £1

7.3 A Rider will be taken to have contravened Rule (D)44 (general conduct at the start) if his horse goes beyond the marker poles prior to the start being effected, unless the Starter considers that the circumstances were beyond the Rider's reasonable control.

7.4 For safety reasons the Starter may release the tape where a horse goes beyond the marker poles, however, where the Starter's flag remains raised this should not be taken as the start being effected.

7.5 The gap between the marker poles and the tape will enable a horse that has become side on to be led out.

 

Turning back 

8.1 If the Starter has told all Riders to take a turn back, they must go back as far as the marker poles, line up, and a standing start will be effected.

8.2 The Starter may allow a Rider or Riders to take a voluntary turn if it assists in starting the race.

8.3 If the tape becomes dislodged (or for any other reason of sustained delay), all horses must take a turn back as far back as instructed by the Starter.

 

There was much sniggering about the changes to starting procedures for jumps racing when they were launched last year, writes Rory Delargy, but while the detail involved has caused some to liken them to a set of rules for delinquent schoolchildren, the results have been largely positive. Of course, the cynics would suggest that jump jockeys have much in common with naughty boys and benefit from the new guidelines accordingly.

Those who regularly observe the start of jump races will note that experienced jockeys have a set of tricks which they can deploy in order to maximise their chances of getting a good position, and while some gamesmanship will always be in play, it’s only right and proper that the starter should be able to punish any delaying tactics accordingly. You may remember an occasion where Mattie Batchelor, riding Carruthers was left at the start in a handicap chase at Cheltenham in October 2012.

The formbook records that he was left at the start, which suggests he refused to race, but his fate was in the hands of his rider, who pulled a high-risk stunt of taking his mount back from a difficult position while appealing to the starter to call the field back. That’s not meant as a slur on Batchelor, of course – he was riding a horse whose best form had come when dominating, and he had been caught out as the field lined up from an awkward starting position. In that situation, most jockeys with some nous would have tried to effect a false start in order to get a second bite of the cherry. He was unlucky in that he came up against an official who didn’t want to dance that particular dance on the day.

Such “no-sir” tactics have often been successful, but it’s apparent that they were often used when a jockey had been outmanoeuvred by his colleagues, and not because he was in particular difficulty. The new rules acknowledge that such situations exist, and by doing so, give more power to the starters to call the bluff of riders they believe to be using chicanery to try to gain an advantage. One of the biggest problems with starts in the past has been the lack of organisation, with a frequent scenario involving horses filtering into the start from a holding area which saw some adrift and often facing the wrong way when the leader was sent on its way.

The desire to start as many races as possible from a straight walk-up is a major help in this regard, albeit not practicable in some cases. Having the field moving forward as a unit means that starts are fairer to all runners, with leaders less likely to be gifted soft leads (although this still happens, it’s usually because other riders, rather than the starter let it play out that way), and those in the ruck also less likely to be left flat-footed as the tapes go up.

So far so good, but I fail to understand why the instruction changes in the case of the field needing to be recalled. In such a scenario, the riders are asked to return to the marker poles in front of the starting gate, where a standing start is then effected. Standing starts are well named, because it’s an absolute certainty that at least one horse will be left standing in the aftermath. In March we had the debacle of the Imperial Cup in which Wicklow Brave lost all chance after being left, and he rubbed salt into the wounds of backers by running away with the County Hurdle just a few days later.

At that same Cheltenham Meeting, Monetaire was arguably cost victory in the Festival Plate after losing many lengths from a rearranged start, and several others were hampered in the congestion which followed the eventual tape-rise. Skip forward to the Open Meeting at Prestbury Park, and you will witness that Present View was another to have dwelt badly from a standing position in the fixture’s feature race.

It’s ironic that big handicaps are more likely to produce such instances, as they tend to be the most popular betting races, and yet they are regularly compromised by unfair starts. If walk-up starts are so successful, then why can’t they be applied in the event of a false start? One trite conclusion is that false starts are deemed to be the fault of jockeys, and once they’ve broken the rules, they should have their privileges revoked. In truth, it’s probably considered a matter of alacrity, as a race delayed by a false start is a race delayed too long, and the standing start is seen as the quickest method of despatch. That may be true in theory, but it’s much more important to wait for a start which is broadly fair to all, than to effect a farcical start as quickly as possible.

Trainers’ Report: November, Part 1

In the first in a new series, Rory Delargy - looks beyond the headline figures in search of trainers in - and out of - form.

Trainers Report November – Part 1

The first half of November is most notable for Cheltenham’s Open Meeting, which bestrides the month like a colossus. But it is dangerous to assume that relative success at that major fixture will be indicative of future trends at more everyday meetings.

On the other hand, it also represents a mini-Festival in itself, with a few of the bigger yards attempting to get their better animals there in top shape; so underperformance at Cheltenham can sound early alarms for the season as a whole.

We obviously want to look at the meeting closely, but not exclusively, as betting opportunities are equally prevalent on the bread-and-butter days, and identifying the yards which do well at a less public level is likely to be more rewarding financially.

 

Paul Nicholls:

It is not surprising that Paul Nicholls, who has the strongest team in the country, should emerge as the leading provider of winners in the first part of the month, but it’s perhaps more unusual to see that backing his runners blind produced a healthy profit in that time period, with Open Meeting wins for Vicente (16/1) and Old Guard (12/1) boosting the bottom line considerably.

Vicente was a notable market drifter, as was novice chase winner Silsol at Carlisle, and when it comes to proven performers, especially over fences, punters need not be perturbed by market weakness. The Ditcheat chasers are famously well schooled, and even the slow learners (as Silsol and Salubrious had been reported) tend to know their job better than most novices. As a result, backing runners from the yard on their first or second starts over the bigger obstacles tends to be a profitable strategy, even though the market tries to adjust for this phenomenon.

In fact, since 2008, backing all Nicholls’ runners on their first or second chase starts would have netted 175 winners from 447 runners (39.15%) and a profit at starting price of 40.39 units.

We would expect the traditional yards to have a better strike-rate over fences than hurdles based purely on implied chance, and that’s been true here with nine of Nicholls’ thirteen jumps winners coming over fences, but his win and place record with hurdlers indicates that a bare record of four wins from 21 runs over timber doesn’t reflect how well they have been performing. In short, we can see that the Champion Trainer has a healthy stable, with performance beating expectation at present. While that should continue, punters need to be a little wary in betting more exposed horses who will be better judged on their own merits, but who may be allowed to start shorter than they deserve due to the perceived “hot form” of the yard.

 

Venetia Williams:

Unlike the ultra-reliable Paul Nicholls, the Herefordshire stable of Venetia Williams is like quicksilver, with fortunes tending to wax and wane spectacularly, and while Venetia has had a profitable month on the figures, there is plenty in there to leave us scratching our heads. Nine winners from 35 runners was an excellent haul, but the most notable aspect of those figures was that the majority of them were handicap chasers returning from absence (150 days and more), showing that La Williams is one of the finest in the land at getting proven performers fit at home.

The longer term data support this, with VW having had 28 handicap chase winners returning from a break of 150 days or more from 118 runners since 2008 (23.73%), for a level stake profit of 116.13 units.

What is worrying, though, is that every runner she has turned out quickly has failed to make the frame, and there must be a concern that many of her first-time-out scorers are going to struggle subsequently off higher marks. There is also a reliance on soft ground performers within the yard, which is hardly an issue in the immediate future, but sounds a warning for the spring.

Backing handicap chasers from the stable at the Cheltenham Festival has proved profitable, but that is largely due to whopping SPs about Carrickboy and Something Wells, and she once again made no impact with her runners there last week, with all four running poorly. The worry with the stable is that with the horses providing the returns in the past few weeks now in the lap of the handicapper, the immediate future may be bleak for followers, and it seems best to stick with those making their seasonal returns, particularly those handicappers who may have gone off the boil last season.

[From the sample above, those who finished 4th or worse when last seen were 23 from 80 (28.75%) for 119.25 units at SP since 2008 – 149% ROI]

 

Neil Mulholland:

Your first 30 days for just £1

There is no doubt that Neil Mulholland is a growing force in the industry, and given what a busy month November is, it rather jumps off the page that he has sent out more National Hunt runners in November than all bar Messrs Nicholls and Hobbs. Of the 41 runners sent out from Conkwell Grange, only three were successful, which doesn’t sound promising at first; but that he should once again bolster his Cheltenham record with the stylish win of Shantou Village underlines the fact that he’s a trainer who is extremely capable of establishing the merit of his horses, and he has a strike-rate at Prestbury Park which makes hugely impressive reading.

Unlike Venetia Williams, Mulholland doesn’t look to do all his work on the home gallops, and he produces his runners to look big and well in the paddock. Many of those he has turned out of late have given the impression that they have needed a run or two for fitness, and while that militates against backing those whose fitness cannot be relied upon, it suggests that the yard’s runners will thrive over the next few weeks as they are brought to a peak.

There has also been a flurry of winners on the Flat for the stable, so there should be no worries in terms of well-being, but merely a caveat regarding the readiness of some of the less experienced inmates. All three of the November winners had raced within the previous five weeks and, of those, Ashcott Boy has been remarkably well placed to win three handicap chases this season. This is a yard which is expected to improve its strike-rate markedly in the coming weeks, and it would be folly to field against race-fit runners on the basis of a seemingly poor few weeks.

 

Harry Whittington:

Most of the yards featured thus far are powerful in terms of numbers and, while it is dangerous to extrapolate on limited data, I must give a big word for Harry Whittington, who has quickly made his mark with fairly limited ammunition. As a result, he is beginning to increase both the number and quality of the horses under his care. Three winners from just six runners in recent weeks is an impressive tally, and while such figures are easily skewed by sample size, it’s worth looking at the young handler’s impact in the short time he’s had a licence.

Whittington, based in Sparsholt, near Lambourn, first showed he had a certain knack when sending out 100/1 newcomer Dubai Kiss to land a bumper at Newbury in 2013, and has been operating a high percentage business in the last couple of seasons: 2014/15 ended with eight winners from just 42 runners.

He’s already surpassed that total and winning ratio this term, with a stunning score to date of ten winners from thirty runners. As I type this he has added to that tally through the win of Big Society in a handicap chase at Chepstow, a remarkable feat for any trainer given the horse has a tendency to jump as if at least three of his legs are tied together!

It won’t be long before the market adjusts to his talents, but the SP of 7/1 about his latest winner suggests that punters may have the edge for a while yet. Whittington is getting winners across all spheres of competition, and it’s particularly encouraging to note he’s maintaining an excellent record in handicap hurdles, one which even Nicky Henderson and Paul Nicholls struggle to match.

 

David Pipe & Nigel Twiston-Davies:

If there was one trainer mooted to do well at Cheltenham’s Open Meeting, it was David Pipe; but while admitting that expectations were unrealistic to some degree, and largely based on what Martin Pipe had achieved in bygone years, it was a week to forget for the Master of Nicholashayne, with a plethora of well backed runners performing below expectations.

The nightmare at Cheltenham wasn’t entirely without warning given the form the yard had been showing, and Pipe’s figures for November now read 3-42, with hurdlers in particular doing poorly (no winners from 25 runs). The question is how we approach the yard in the foreseeable future, and the conclusion must be that something, however minor, is amiss – a notion backed up by the fact that many of the recent representatives have travelled very well only to finish weakly.

Kings Palace was one such example, while La Vaticane, who was favourite for the opening race at the fixture, looked sure to win at the third last but ran out of steam completely. Fitness has always been first priority at Team Pipe, so it’s unlikely that the horses have been needing a run, and a low-grade infection/virus is a more likely reason for the pattern of performance.

On a similar note, we’re often told how Nigel Twiston-Davies loves to have his horses at their very best for Cheltenham’s big November highlight, but the figures don’t back that up, and the diffident Twiston-Davies has so far trained just two from 32 over jumps this month. This follows from a good October, and I don’t expect him to remain in the doldrums, but he does have a history of going very cold in mid-winter before a spring revival. One horse to be positive about is Listed bumper winner Ballyandy, who hails from a talented if quirky family, and impressed in terms of ability and attitude at the weekend.

With Bristol de Mai putting in a breathtaking display of jumping when winning at Warwick on Wednesday, it’s clearly not all doom and gloom in Naunton, but it may pay to tread carefully with the run-of-the-mill entries for the next few weeks, or until such times as the winners begin to flow with more regularity.

Racing Consultants

A second look at the Racing Consultants

About a year ago, we ran a 60-day review of the Racing Consultants and it proved to be very successful indeed, making over £1000 profit in the two months we trialled the service.

I've been following this service ever since and I'm happy to say that it has continued to provide profit for its subscribers (myself included!).

The Geegeez subscriber base has grown considerably in the past year and I thought it would be a good idea to do an update review of the Racing Consultants service for those who hadn't seen the original and also for those interested in how it had progressed since last year.

I'm happy to report that in the 10 months since our original review (which is here), the service has made another 152.2pts profit.

The Racing Consultants are two men whose names will be familiar to many of you already and this relatively new venture is the collaboration of their daily thoughts/bets for the day's racing.

The men in question are Rory Delargy and David Massey and you may have heard of Rory via his work on Timeform Radio, William Hill Radio and at Cheltenham Racecourse. He also writes for The Irish Field and his daily nap from that publication is entered into the Racing Post's Naps table, where he cocsistently sits near the top showing a profit, unlike most of his "rivals".

His colleague in this Racing Consultants venture is David Massey, another freelance journalist with experience on radio, SkyTV's Bet Racing Nation and the Arabian Racing Organisation amongst many others, whilst more recently David won a landslide victory in the William Hill Radio NH tipping competition, for the season just ended, where he was over 35pts clear of his nearest challenger!

The way the service works is as follows: David and Rory get their heads together each evening/morning to discuss the next days racing with a view to formulating a betting program for the day.

Between them, the Racing Consultants compile their own report of what, in their opinion, can win and what can’t and also a report detailing what is value and what isn’t. They then try to assess where the bookies have got the prices wrong and how it can be exploited.

If, in the evening, they spot an obvious over-priced selection in the bookies prices, they will email you immediately so you can take advantage. Otherwise, the full daily message is usually delivered between 11.00am and noon, once the markets have settled.

The Racing Consultants selections are delivered in two ways: both via email and also on a members-only webpage and these selections are presented in the race time / selection / stake /odds format. Each selection is also accompanied with a full overview of the race in question.

For example, during the original trial, they advised 4.40 Fontwell – Wor Rom 1pt e/w 15/2 BOG (Coral) with this subtext...

Fontwell – Similarly conditions are set to worsen at the Sussex venue and soft ground horses should be given utmost consideration. The 3.10 gets a mention due to the money this morning for Detour Ahead, one of three horses Warren Greatrex has got from Jennie Candish, and it will be interesting to see how he gets on today. Always had ability but it’s been difficult to unlock, and if this one wins you can expect good money for the other two when they run too. Dahteste is another that’s shown a glimmer of ability in that contest, and is another that needs keeping an eye on, having run well over C & D on rain-softened ground the time before last before disappointing again next time.

The only bet on the card comes in the shape of veteran Wor Rom in the 4.40. He’s possibly the one horse in the field you can put your finger on who won’t have any issues with this extended trip in soft ground, and the addition of first time blinkers may well rejuvenate him (has run well in cheekpieces before). With Andrew Thornton on board to bump him along, he should be staying on better than most here and ought not be out of the frame at worst.

Wor Rom was a winner at 12/1 and Detour Ahead, although not a selection won at Evens.

To get access to these daily selections from the Racing Consultants, there are two options available. The most economical way of subscribing is the £199 per annum membership fee, but for those who prefer a monthly package, the cost is £39.99 per month.

The Racing Consultants advise a 100pt bank for the service and expect to be wagering on average 4 to 8 pts per day. For the purpose of his 60-day review, Iain MacMillan will assume a notional £1000 bank with a £10 per point level stake.

Iain's Final Assessment :

Time to wax lyrical about another successful review of the Racing Consultants service.

The statistics show that over the 60 day trial the service produced a profit of nearly £1020 from 233 selections that had 55 winners (strike rate of almost 24%) with another 40 selections being 2nd and 36 coming in 3rd.

This review started well and just kept on getting better, there were the expected bad days but the general trend was onwards and upwards.

Geegeez reviewed this service a year ago and it made over £1000 profit and during this review it made over £1000 profit with a nice healthy profit in the intervening time.

The final analysis isn’t rocket science, this is a ‘must have’ addition to your portfolio, make it your first pick and ‘get in there’!!

Racing Consultants Service Review

Racing Consultants

Let's look at the Racing Consultants

The Racing Consultants are two men whose names will be familiar to many of you already and this relatively new venture is the collaboration of their daily thoughts/bets for the day's racing.

The men in question are Rory Delargy and David Massey and you may have heard of Rory via his work on Timeform Radio, William Hill Radio and at Cheltenham Racecourse. He also writes for The Irish Field and his daily nap from that publication is entered into the Racing Post's Naps table, where he currently sits in third place...

Racing Post Naps Table

Racing Post Naps Table

His colleague in this Racing Consultants venture is David Massey, another freelance journalist with experience on radio, SkyTV's Bet Racing Nation and the Arabian Racing Organisation amongst many others.

The way the service works is as follows: David and Rory get their heads together each evening/morning to discuss the next days racing with a view to formulating a betting program for the day.

Between them, the Racing Consultants compile their own report of what, in their opinion, can win and what can’t and also a report detailing what is value and what isn’t. They then try to assess where the bookies have got the prices wrong and how it can be exploited.

If, in the evening, they spot an obvious over-priced selection in the bookies prices, they will email you immediately so you can take advantage. Otherwise, the full daily message is usually delivered between 11.00am and noon, once the markets have settled.

The Racing Consultants selections are delivered in two ways: both via email and also on a members-only webpage and these selections are presented in the race time / selection / stake /odds format. Each selection is also accompanied with a full overview of the race in question.

For example, last Wednesday (4th June), they advised 4.40 Fontwell – Wor Rom 1pt e/w 15/2 BOG (Coral) with this subtext...

Fontwell – Similarly conditions are set to worsen at the Sussex venue and soft ground horses should be given utmost consideration. The 3.10 gets a mention due to the money this morning for Detour Ahead, one of three horses Warren Greatrex has got from Jennie Candish, and it will be interesting to see how he gets on today. Always had ability but it’s been difficult to unlock, and if this one wins you can expect good money for the other two when they run too. Dahteste is another that’s shown a glimmer of ability in that contest, and is another that needs keeping an eye on, having run well over C & D on rain-softened ground the time before last before disappointing again next time.

The only bet on the card comes in the shape of veteran Wor Rom in the 4.40. He’s possibly the one horse in the field you can put your finger on who won’t have any issues with this extended trip in soft ground, and the addition of first time blinkers may well rejuvenate him (has run well in cheekpieces before). With Andrew Thornton on board to bump him along, he should be staying on better than most here and ought not be out of the frame at worst.

Wor Rom was a winner at 12/1 and Detour Ahead, although not a selection won at Evens.

To get access to these daily selections from the Racing Consultants, there are two options available. The most economical way of subscribing is the £199 per annum membership fee, but for those who prefer a monthly package, the cost is £29.99 per month.

The Racing Consultants advise a 100pt bank for the service and expect to be wagering on average 4 to 8 pts per day.
For the purpose of our 60-day review, we'll assume a notional £1000 bank with a £10 per point level stake and our man David Sutton will be your guide.

Racing Consultants, Day 13: 21/06/14

The frustration at Royal Ascot continues for us, but we are looking at today’s card with confidence as a couple of these races look like they should be taking part at Redcar, and only a few of them can possibly win. On top of which, there’s one in the Queen Alexandra that Rory feels is massively overpriced.

As ever take BOG unless stated.

2.30 Ascot Toscanini 1pt win @ 11/2 - 2nd @ 4/1

3.05 Ascot Arab Spring 2pts win @ 7/2 (11/4 or better is acceptable) - won @ 11/4

4.25 Ascot Slade Power 1pt win @ 4/1 - won @ 7/2

5.00 Ascot Baccarat 1pt e/w 12/1 - won @ 9/1

5.35 Ascot First Avenue 0.5 pts e/w @ 50/1 - unpl

3.25 Newmarket Sensible Way 1pt win 15/2 - 7th @ 8/1

2.55 Ayr Lawmans Thunder 1pt win @ 3/1 - 7th @ 6/1

0.5 pts e/w trixie Toscanini, Slade Power, Baccarat (see notes at bottom) - won

We have put an e/w Trixie up today as we think none of the three selections in the bet should be out of the frame. The way we play these things is this – if the bet is going well by the time Baccarat runs then you can, if you wish, ignore the separate e/w single as you may already have anything from 4 points upwards already running onto the selection. If not, or even if you prefer to, then the separate single on Baccarat should be a bet.

Racing Consultants, Day 49: 27/07/14

No bets or advice appeared on the members website for Sunday but on Monday morning the service did claim to have recommended a couple of placed selections which produced a small profit.  Different browsers were tried, caches and temporary data cleared and even different devices but still no page appears.  The Racing Consultants service also uses email which isn't available to the reviewer and Geegeez support haven't been able to find any supporting email.  Therefore, the review believes there to have been a technical glitch in the delivery of the recommendations.  With that in mind, the day will be recorded as a 'no bet' day because the selections are unknown. and unverified.

That concludes the very successful 60 day trial of the Racing Consultants trial.  The results speak for themselves and the service can hardly be faulted.  The only glitch in the service appeared to be a technical one and was for a solitary day.  The website is good, neatly presented and easily navigated.  Rory Delargy's nap is keenly followed and there have been occasion where the price has disappeared before the message can be published.  In an attempt to resolve this, Racing Consultants now email the selection to your registered email address the previous night.  There was no need to contact Customer Support so that aspect can't be assessed.  Technically, the service is very well delivered to it's customers.

The results?  Outstanding!  A healthy strike rate, coupled with value selections has produced over £1000 profit in just 60 days and with the reasonable fees, that's value for money in anyone's book.

One aspect of the Racing Consultants service this review can't fully cover is the content of the daily message.  It's a veritable goldmine of considered thought, reasoning and selection advice.  In addition to the advised selections, David Massey and Rory Delargy add value with comments on other races, possible other selections and hints on how to play certain races.  There's been back-to-lay suggestions, selections that didn't make the official list (winners and losers!) and even suggestions on forecasts and tricasts.  Their membership is very well looked after and Racing Consultants is a 5-star service which deserves to be in your betting armoury.
