The Shortlist, 6th May 2014


In Llanelli today, and I can heartily recommend the Thomas Arms as an oasis of connectivity - and good service and comfy beds - in a desert of disconnection across the west of Wales. It's beautiful this close to Ireland, but it is also remote and I may have learned something about myself this week. (Not necessarily something good either!)

Yesterday saw us back on the winning trail, courtesy of Debdebdeb, and we had good runs from both Quinz (2nd) and Solstice Son (3rd) too. Bousatet rounded out a 1-2-3-4 for us on the day.

Here's Tuesday's The Shortlist.

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 Barry

      No, we don’t have that. The Shortlist is offered daily ‘as is’, as it’s a slightly less considered service than Double Dutch and Stat of the Day. It is based solely on the Race Analysis Reports, without taking into account things like pace, trainer form, and so on. I do know that as of a month ago, it was ten points up to advised prices, and I suspect it’s probably around the same now.
