CHELTENHAM The Statistical Awakening

They say we are an intelligent and honest service
based on statistics. I think it’s a bit more than that
and whilst Statistics divide people it’s a far bigger
area that most people realise as our clients know.

If I go back 10 years and look at my past messages
at Cheltenham they look so out dated now. These
are full of tired clichés and well known statistics.

The old chestnuts are still going strong
5 year olds can’t win Champion Hurdles until they do
6 year olds can’t win the Gold Cup until they do

Times have changed
Racing has changed
Our Analysis is always improving

That said it is heartening to see so many more use
statistics, data and analysis. In the last few seasons
there has been a statistical awakening in punters.

Nowadays so many more gamblers are improving
and going through an awakening with betting and
the use of racing statistics. So too are bookmakers
Tipsters, Journalists, Authors and Bloggers as well.

As a service though we have moved on. I read the
mainstream statistics and recognise these angles
as something I was doing several years ago. I feel
heartened to see many people use them well and
they are useful but these days you do need more.

Bookmakers know all about these angles and you
will find them quoting weary old statistics purely
from memory such is the extent that some of the
statistics are so far in the public domain. Its now
no longer to use these tired old arguments well.

For the last few seasons we have not stood still.

We have been developing and using some far
better angles very successfully. Our results are
better now than they have ever been and when
you consider we never advertise and rely only
on long term members and people that enquire
about us it shows we are doing something right.

When I advise a bet we want you to understand
why your are having the bet and the reasons to
do that. We are not afraid to test things out and
take risks when we need to. Members tell us it
is a service that leads the way and teaches you
how to improve your betting simply through an
intelligent approach that nobody else manages.

As an example let’s take Cheltenham
Handicap Hurdles and Handicap Chases.
Horses aged 11 or more

Many people will tell you horses aged 11 win
and they do but they won’t tell you that those
few winners aged 11 were very similar types

They won’t tell you if 11 year olds manage to
win if having an absence or carrying weight
or how many runs they have needed to win.

As it happens no 11 year old has managed to
win a Cheltenham handicap without having
a race in the previous month. We search to
find the angles that really matter. We look to
find Precedents and areas of weakness and
we collate these all and interpret them and
show members why they are betting horses.

We develop combination statistics showing
what type of horse wins each race and why.

I am working on a race next week right now

I find that in the last 6 years of this race
5 of the 6 winners had the same profile
Only 9 horses ran with this profile since 2009
These horses had a 5 winners from 9 record.
They won at 12/1 16/1 20/1 25/1 14/1
This will be a race fully discussed next week
Members will have full access to these angles

It is an angle I have never used before
It illustrates that we are never standing still.
We never stop working for clients
We are still several years ahead of the rest
Fascinating to see others catching up now
The Statistical awakening is growing each year
They are working the same way we did years ago
In a few years time they will be where we are now.
Join us and see how far ahead we will be then

If interested in joining now is the time.
My Cheltenham deal offers you first month savings.
The deal covers not just Cheltenham
but also the Aintree Grand National Festival.
Plus of course all mid week and Saturday action
before and in between.

There is a super strong refund guarantee on it because
I know how much effort I have put into preparing for Cheltenham
and I am highly confident you will not be disappointed.

Cheltenham Gold Cup Tip

Cheltenham Gold Cup Tip

betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup Chase
Grade 1 (CLASS 1) (5yo+)  3m2f110y

7/4 Long Run, 7/2 Kauto Star, 15/2 Burton Port
11/1 Synchronised, 12/1 Midnight Chase, 12/1 Weird Al
20/1 What A Friend, 33/1 Diamond Harry
40/1 Time For Rupert, 50/1 China Rock, 66/1 Carruthers
66/1 The Giant Bolster, 100/1 Knockara Beau
100/1 The Midnight Club.

The Gold Cup is always fascinating and is again this year
as well. You will no doubt have your own views about it
and may already be involved. I am going to see where a
few of my statistics lead me. It was 1969 before we last
had a winner aged 11 or more and for all his brilliance I
do oppose KAUTO STAR as a 12 year old. I dont think
its relevant what he has done at Kempton or Haydock
this season. Judge him on Gold Cup form and he failed
in 2011 and 2010 and never looked like winning either
of the last two renewals. I think something should beat
him. I would also go as far as saying he might not place
either. DIAMOND HARRY isn’t safe enough and dont
think he’s about to win a Gold Cup on this course. I’m
against BURTON POINT with just one run so far this
season. Every past winners had more. There must be a
chance he will bounce after his Newbury run and I feel
he is too riSky. He’s also a small horse that wont enjoy
this race of it gets rough in any way. I couldnt be with
him having just that one race. MIDNIGHT CHASE is
now an exposed 10 year old and whilst not a negative
horses his age have struggled recently. He doesn’t have
the right exposure and is rated a bit lower than is ideal.

P o s s i b l e s

WEIRD AL

WEIRD AL pulled up in last years race but He has been
quietly shortening in the betting this year and now 12/1
a much shorter price than you may expect. He is hard
to read. I can argue he’s lower than the minimum rating
I think you want. I can argue he did not quite do enough
on his last start but there is nothing statistically wrong
with his chance other than minor infringments. I also
think its quite interesting he has upgraded stables since
last year. He had a larynx problem that required surgery
after the Hennessy in 2001 and Bled in last years Gold
Cup. He is now with Donald McCain who has not raced
him since November. This horse is Best Fresh. The big
doubt is whether he is Man enough for the race. He was
a Boy last year. A Sickly child needing operations and
having physical problems. He was asked to do a bit too
much and wasn’t finishing races and getting distressed.

He was out of his depth and couldn’t cope. Now he has
a new trainer another year on his back and has shown
he isn’t far away from his best. Has that extra year or
new stable made him a Man Has he gone through the
process of Boy to Man or is he still weak and waiting
to crumble once tested to the maximum stress of any
Gold Cup. I dont know but he’s one of those that may
win or finish last and may be a win bet and a place lay.

S h o r t l i s t

LONG RUN

* LONG RUN – Statistically there are no problems
* Like many I haven’t been impressed with him this year
* My own view is winning this aged 6 knocked him back
* He is shortlistable and probably around the right price
* He will have to run and jump his best this year to win

WHAT A FRIEND

* Statistically I pass him as fine
* He fails 3 stats but only by the width of an Atom
* I want a 166 rating and he is 165
* I want a 1st or 2nd last time and he was 3rd
* I want a win within 6 runs and his came 7 runs ago
* I can ignore All that especially as he is 25/1 +
* I think this horse has been unfairly pidgeon holed
* He gets a lot of criticism as being ungenuine
* Many dont realise what he was up against
* I want to put the case for the defence
* WHAT A FRIEND won his first 2 chases in 2009
* Nothing wrong at all with that
* He was then hammered in the Sun Alliance
* When he flopped in the Sun Alliance I expected it
* Big negative that day with only 2 Chase starts
* We opposed him and he had the wrong preparation
* He won next time at Stratford
* First time out 2009-2010 he was 2nd in the Hennessy
* Second in Denmans Hennessy was a creditable effort
* WHAT A FRIEND won a Grade 1 next time
* He then went and won another Grade 1 after that
* He was beaten then at Haydock in November 2010
* That was first time out so hardly worth damming him
* He was odds on in the 2001 Aon Chase
* People criticised him but he did come second
* That day he had just 1 run that year and a long break
* I had him as a negative in that race and not safe
* His 2011 Gold Cup run was very good
* He was only beaten 11 lengths by Long run
* Ignore his run in the 2011 Grand National
* He didnt stay and he was technically still a 7yo
* None have won in decades and that was no shame
* This year he had a reasonable prep race at Newbury
* That will set him up with a chance in this race
* Whenever this horse has lost he has been criticised
* Almost every time he has there was a genuine excuse.
* WHAT A FRIEND should be half his price

SYNCHRONISED

I said in the January 21st message that my early choice
for the Gold Cup was SYNCHRONISED and nothing has
changed my mind. I see Pricewise have tipped him so it
may be a point shorter than expected but this horse has
a massive chance. His 2011 Welsh National win was so
impressive statistically he looked at Gold Cup horse at
that point. His Lexus chase win may have been a slow
time but thast wasn’t his fault as he oozed class. I have
never felt he was ground dependant and its clear he has
been trained like a Gold Cup winner and not overfaced
in unneccesary races and I get the impression his yard
have known for a while he could be up to this class.

SELECTION

LONG RUN 2/1
WHAT A FRIEND 25/1
SYNCHRONISED  10/1

I think one of these will win. LONG RUN is clearly the
most likely winner but he’s short and with 3 shortlisted
staking becomes a problem. There is a market which is
“without the two favourites” Long Run and Kauto Star
and I was tempted by WHAT A FRIEND each way in
that market around 10/1. Thats tempting and I have a
small bet on that myself but for several weeks now I’ve
been very keen on SYNCHRONISED and he is my bet.

SYNCHRONISED 10/1

Nb blog comment:  10/1 now gone but was about earlier when full members got this.

9/1 available at Ladbrokess jamesbet365

The Worst Tip Ever

Before we move to today’s racing  a couple of points to cover.

1 – The Worst Tip Ever !

Last weekend’s blog tip was the worst tip ever.
Not that Maku ran a bad race finishing 2nd at 7/1 beaten by a head.
The analysis was almost spot on.
The horror was in the fact that Maku actually ran on Friday not Saturday when the tip was posted.
This was genuine human error.
My admin man posted it up. He was away from home confused with a borrowed PC and obviously working with insufficient caffeine in his system.

I have told him if he ever posts up a free blog tip again the day after it runs ..  to post up  a winner ..not a horse beaten by a head :)

2 – Full Service Cheap Price Cheltenham Deal

We are running a half price offer now for full membership.
Join today and your months membership obviously covers the upcoming Cheltenham festival.
If you are a regular blog reader you will know the sort of detail we go into.
For Cheltenham I work even harder for clients.
I doubt you will get a more comprehensive Cheltenham service anywhere.

You know you want in for Cheltenham so just do it now while it’s half price.

Here is the cheap price link
*************************************************
http://www.mathematician-betting.co.uk/cheltenham-offer.asp
*************************************************

A sample message from last year is at the link below

http://www.mathematician-betting.co.uk/cheltenham-betting-advice.asp

On to Today

For full members we have a full account bet in the 4.05

Out of respect for them we can’t post that here.

A small snippet from the extra analysis section of the main message is copied below for you however.

KEMPTON 3.05

Racing Post Chase (Handicap) Grade 3 (CLASS 1) (5yo+) 3m

7/2 Nacarat, 4/1 Fistral Beach, 9/2 Kilcrea Castle,
8/1 Madison Du Berlais, 12/1 Atouchbetweenacara
14/1 Oedipe, 16/1 Le Burf, 16/1 Piraya, 16/1 Private Be
20/1 Razor Royale, 28/1 Something Wells, 33/1 Bible Lord
66/1 Ollie Magern.

* The Racing Post Chase is a Graded Chase over 3m
* There has been 15 renewals of this race.
* There has been 70 similar races in Febuary
* Thats 70 Handicap Chases at 3m in Class 2 or higher

I think we can rule out Something Wells- Ollie Magern and
Bible Lord who wants a smaller field than this. PIRAYA may
also want a smaller field. All his dissapointing runs come in field sizes of 11 or more runners.
Horses with 1 run this year score badly. Those like ATOUCHBETWEENACARA who
have to step up in trip struggle and he didnt do enough for
me last time. OEDIPE has just 1 run this year and I don’t see enough in his profile to
forgive him that. Experience could be a problem for FISTRAL BEACH who has had
just 3 runs over Chases. The lightest raced chaser to win this was the high class
Gloria Victus who won this in 2000 with just five  chase starts and went on to run
in the Gold Cup after this race. It’s asking a lot for  FISTRAL BEACH to win
with just 3 runs. The 15 winners of this race all had more experience.
They had 6 7 11 41 18 28 6 6 9 5 13 31 14 22 13 chase runs.
I am looking elsewhere. I dont know if LE BURF will have the class.
Most recent winners of this were unexposed. He isnt and none came from
Class 3 races or lower like him. He  isnt proven beyond doubt over this
distance and having never placed or won above a Class 3 grade before
he may just be found out on a career high mark.

NACARAT won this easily last year by 11 lengths although
he was in much better form last year.  This year he has been beaten miles in
all 3 races albeit in top class races. His issue is can he come back to form -
and can he show he stays this far on much softer ground than last year and
with a longer than ideal absence. If you look at the winners of this race in the
past you want a consistent horse thats been running well all year and NACARAT
does not fit that pattern. The Last 14  winners of this race ran 50 seperate times
in the season they won. In these 50 races in the season they won – the winners
managed to either Win or Place in 44 out of the 50 races. It’s
a strong statistic that shows you want a horse thats running well all season and
coming here with several wins and places this year. You want consistency as
much as anything else in this race and Last time out winners won 12 of the last
16 races  and every past winner was 1-2-3-4-5 last time out with just one
falling. NACARAT hasnt placed since 2009 and I reject him.

SHORTLIST

RAZOR ROYALE – Best outsider – Small chance – Shortlistable

KILCREA CASTLE – Profile is quite good and a strong runner

MADISON DU BERLAIS – Class horse and every chance

PRIVATE BE – The arguments for him are persuasive

SELECTION

I dont really want to be with Madison Du Berlais as this
is a Momentum race. I would want a better stable for this
class than Kilcrea Castle. You can look at Private Be in
two ways. Ideally I wouldnt want a 11yo up in trip but
the arguments for him on the track and with some of his
form is persuasive off 10st weight so a split stake bet.

PRIVATE BE 10/1
RAZOR ROYALE 20/1

Split Stake Bet
