The Shortlist 10th October 2013


A head away from a 16/1 winner yesterday, as Saoi was just touched off in the 7.40 Kempton. Not much at all today, despite a fair amount of racing.

Today's racecards are here.

Here is today's Shortlist, along with the best odds (all best odds guaranteed prices) at the time of writing.

7.10 Kem - Snowboarder - 6/4 Coral

My 'also considered' list comprises:

3.00 Wor - Crack At Dawn - 6/1 BetVictor
5.30 Wor - Qoubilai e/w - 9/1 Ladbrokes


The Shortlist is a simple concept: I go through the Race Analysis Reports each day to find horses which I consider to be of interest. I then publish that list of horses here. Some will win, many will lose. It is hoped that the winners will cover the losers and leave a bit of gravy on the punting platter.

Now, before I go on, I need to make (labour!) a really important point. And it is this:

the Race Analysis Reports are deliberately interpretive. That is, different people will highlight different horses depending on whether they're using the win or place statistics, and which columns they sort on (based on which elements they consider most important in a given race).

So, these will be the horses on MY shortlist. Feel free to do with them what you will.

You may have a different shortlist, and you are most certainly encouraged to go and play with the numbers to find what works best for you.

As regular readers will know, it makes absolute sense to get the best price you can about any selection you're backing. Put another way, it makes no sense whatsoever to accept a shorter price than the best available unless you've got too much money and are keen to give some away! 😉

So, if you don't already have accounts with all the main bookmakers, you should get them. Seriously. Not only will they give you free bets when you start, but you'll also - more importantly - always get the best value on any bet you make by ensuring you take the top price. It's just daft not to.

Here at geegeez, we've got a special software tool which takes the hard (and dull) work of opening accounts, and makes it easy. You fill out a single form, and our software does the rest, opening up to twelve accounts for you with all the major bookmakers.

    Very interpretive indeed! My original pick in the 2:40 at Ayr was Compton Heights, but looking at the Race Analysis, Rise To Glory was the best of the two previous winners on Soft. It was also on a 6lb higher mark than it’s last win, suggesting it wasn’t regressive. It was second and fourth on the two ratings I look at and won last time out over a seemingly inadequate trip, A little bet EW @ 11/1 but paid out at 14/1 BOG. Cheers Matt, I’m loving the new racecards!!! Wishing (after the event and writing all those positives down) it had been a little bigger bet 🙂

    What a little gold mine this is turning out to be! 🙂 I didn’t find it until the 21st and have been placing each way multiples of the selections (Flag, Heinz, Lucky 15 etc) – so far I am 20 points up just from backing all the selections. Just upset I didn’t get in from the start though – an each way Goliath Flag on the selections from the 20th produced around 10 points of profit!
