The Shortlist 8th October 2013


A quiet Tuesday after a quiet Monday, where Bantam - second at 11/2 early - was the best of three main picks.

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.

5.20 Bri - Uncle Dermot e/w - 12/1 PP

My 'also considered' list comprises:

3.30 Cat - Sandsman's Girl e/w - 20/1 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….noticed a new feature to the RARs, The Rating column. I take it L stands for last winning mark (OR), T stands for today’s mark and D is the difference between the two figures (L-T)? Should be good to spot well handicapped horses that profile well across the rest of the RAR criteria.

    Great stuff…the RARs just get better.

      Correct Martin – will write a blog post about it later. 🙂

    Hi Matt,
    Can you please advise me where to find the RARs?
    Can’t seem to find them on the site.
