The Shortlist, 24th March 2014


A 12/1 winner from four picks on Saturday, for nine points profit. Not much to go at today on a typically moderate Monday, but every race has a winner, and perhaps these will come home in front.

Today's racecards are here.

3.50 Tau - Spanish Optimist - 10/1 SJ
5.00 Tow - So Oscar - 6/1 bet365
5.10 Wol - Pravda Street - 25/1 bet365


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.

    Hi Matt – just to let you know that using the Racecards (blindly) yesterday I managed 2 x 1sts, 1 x 2nd and only bombed with Cybersnow (D’patrick) – however, the horse was a 33/1 shot !!!

    Good stuff, and when put with Puntology top choice usually a winner (i.e. Attwaal yesterday).

    Many Thanks

    Matt, just want to say what a run I’m having with the RARs at the moment. Yesterday I had Emerald Rose (on at 13/2) and Bookem Danno (also 13/2), which was preceded on Saturday by Pepite Rose (9s) and Keeneland (12s) alongside five other placed e/w bets. Today I copped Superciliary (33s) as an e/w bet having looked at its place form. Just love the racecards, the best on the ‘net by a country mile!
