Victoria Cup Handicap, Ascot

Victoria Cup Handicap 2019: Video Preview

In this week's Geegeez Gold video showcase, I attempt to deconstruct the 27-runner Victoria Cup handicap at Ascot. Using a variety of tools in the Gold kit bag, I land on two horses which look to have robust each way prospects. Grab a glass/cup of something tasty, and click the video box below to tune in...

    There are 3 horses that have ran in Group 1,2,and 3 a couple in 2 and one in all 3 does this mean they are kind of dropping down into h/cp company the horses are Comin Through, Glorious Journey, Above The Rest. What is your reaction to this I was thinking of small e/w on all three against the field

      Hi Frank

      Personally, I much prefer strong big field handicap form to Group form in handicaps.

      Horses that run in a UK/Irish Group 1, 2, or 3 last time out and dropped into a Class 2 flat turf handicap (20+ runners) are 14/389 (3.6% SR) since 2003. They’re not for me.

      Each to their own, Frank, I’m more trying to showcase the tools and a few approaches that I use than to find every winner or consider every angle. Hope that makes sense.

      Best,
      Matt

    Excellent discourse, dear Matt but you’ve reminded me of two problems I have with the pace analysis tool. 1. It can’t predict changes in trainers’ orders to jockeys (No one can!) and 2. The class of the race will dictate the level of pace which a given horse might not attain unless it was up to the class. Both of these I adjust myself by checking the pace where there is form (placed at least) and the class of the race under scrutiny compared with those of the four races for which data is provided and yes, that means some races I find I can’t use the pace analysis other than to paint a very broad picture. I think it’s fair to say that a horse running in a class 2 handicap, whose previous 4 races were in class 4 & 5, would struggle to lead even if he was in peak form and had led in those previous races. This is NOT a criticism of the best race analysis tools available anywhere on the planet, merely seeds sown for your future development!
    Best wishes, as always,
    Richard
    PS, we both come to the same conclusion (Ripp Orf and Cape Byron) even if by slightly different routes. I still would not exclude Comin’ Through – I NEVER ignore a horse that we all know least about!

      Good stuff Barrie, well done.

      The main aim of the videos is to demo the Gold content more than tip winners. Though obviously it’s a better showcase for the tools when the flagged horses run well!!

    Thanks for the two tips . My issue is I do have very little time to do all that is necessary on geezer gold . Why not you have the days best posted to members as all subscribers have to do the same spending valuable time to narrow down a selection.

      Sorry Duleep,

      We’re not that kind of website. We provide tools and data for people who love the puzzle as much as the betting.

      Best Regards,
      Matt
