The Shortlist 28th October 2013

shortlistDick Dundee ensured the main list came out in front on Saturday and, after a Sunday off, we're back with more for Monday, assuming the weather doesn't scupper it all. Not a lot, even if it's on, and small stakes for your truly as it's desperately moderate stuff in the main.

Today's racecards are here.

2.10 Red - Seattle Drive -


Your first 30 days for just £1

My 'also considered' list comprises:

2.35 Gal - Coole Avenue e/w -
3.20 Ban - The Magic Bishop - 8/1 BetVictor
4.10 Red - Bunce - 14/1 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.

Just click here to put it to work for you.

    Hi Matt

    Just noticed going through the card for the 3.20 at Bangor, that when you change the going to heavy, The Magic Bishops record on heavy is shown as 0/2 when the ‘win’ radio button is selected.

    The Magic Bishop however did win on heavy ground at Carlisle in October 2012.

      Interesting anomaly that, Martin. I just checked and our form for that race shows the going as ‘soft’ but the in line form shows ‘heavy’. The Racing Post has it as ‘heavy’ as well. Bangor is off so it’s academic in the context of today, but we’ll look into the issue all the same.
