The Shortlist 23rd September 2013

shortlist

Another two good winners - at 6/1 and 14/1 - from twelve horses on Saturday, and a day off yesterday, though I did pick out 14/1 Alfraamsey and 8/1 Lovey Dovey, both early prices, from just six selections. And I know from emails and tweets that some of you did too. Good stuff.

Not a great deal to get excited about today, but there are a few below.

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.

Today's racecards are here.

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

2.40 Ham - Dreamy Ciara - 8/1 Ladbrokes - Non-Runner
5.00 Leic - Rainbow Beauty - 9/2 Boylesports - 3rd 5/1

My 'also considered' list comprises:

2.00 Lei - Emperor's Hope - 11/1 BetVictor - 17th 14/1
3.15 Tip - Hilltown Gal - WON 9/1
4.20 Kem - Purcell e/w - 5/1 BetVictor - 3rd 7/2
4.45 Tip - Heirloom - 4/1 Boylesports - 3rd 3/1

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.

      Can I ask where you managed to get a 2p Goliath. If it was online I’d be interested to know. I find the 10p minimum at Bet365 frustrating sometimes.

    Cheers Matt – great job today. I also put these into E/W accumulators and they did rather nicely.

    i went through your racecards and chose all horses that had 3 green criteria such as a green going & a green course and a green class. To betfair SP this made £34.26 points profit, out of 12 selections, 4 winners and 2 placed. not bad really.
