The Shortlist 21st October 2013

shortlist It was nice to get back on the winning track on Saturday, courtesy of two hyper-competitive handicaps. Balthazar King won at Cheltenham at 7/2, having been 13/2 early; while Breton Rock prevailed at 12/1 having been 14/1 early. Personally, I had a shocking day's betting at Ascot - though a great day there - which was saved by Coral and Breton Rock: a most unlikely get out of jail!

I hope your weekend wagering was profitable too. Here's Monday's hopeful list, such as it is, on what is a dreadful day's racing, even by Monday standards.

Today's racecards are here.

5.10 Pon - Headline News - 11/4 PP


My 'also considered' list comprises:

5.40 Pon - Eric The Grey - 9/2 bet365
4.20 Plu - Abbruzzi e/w - 16/1 BetVictor
4.50 Plu - Fair Bramble e/w - 15/2 BetVictor

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.

    In light of the going at Plumpton now being Soft, I’ve had a wee E/W punt on three outsiders!
    3.20: Royal Trooper @ 16/1 E/W (Stan James)
    4.50: Rocky Elsom @ 18/1 E/W (BetVictor)
    5.20: Romney Marsh @ 22/1 E/W (William Hill)

    And Lastchancelucas at 14/1 E/W (coral) due to the switch to heavy ground in the 3.10 Pontefract (running at 3.25)

    I’d like to hear Woy Hodgson call the names too.
