Jump To It – Are You Ready To Make Money This Jumps Season ?

Well after a quiet October so far, we had a great end to the flat season yesterday with Champions Day at Ascot. It was particularly satisfying for me, as I had put up Minding as a main bet for my Racing Profits Email Subscribers yesterday morning at 5/2 in the morning and she landed Queen Elizabeth II nicely, fending off the late challenge from Ribschester.

All Focus Now Switches To The Jumps Until April

Cheltenham Festival 2016

Although we have a few more flat meetings in October and November, including the Racing Post Trophy and November Handicap at Doncaster. This weekend always marks the time I switch my attantion fully to the national hunt season ahead and I have been spending the weekend going through all the horses I am tracking in my Racing Post tracker and removing the majority of my flat horses, other than those which I am going to track on the all-weather and also a few 2yo’s who I want for the early part of the 2017 season.

We have had the first jumps meeting of the season at Kempton Park this afternoon and I was looking forward to seeing My Tent or Yours making his seasonal re-appearance after his huge effort at Cheltenham in the Champion Hurdle, although he was a late withdrawal and so we will need to wait a little longer for that, but I backed stablemate Hargam instead and made a nice profit on that bet.

Next weekend we have the Showcase Meeting at Cheltenham kicking off and then we are into November and the first big jumps meeting at Ascot, Sandown and of course the Paddy Power Open Meeting back at Cheltenham, Ilve this time of year and as many of you know – the next 5 months are my most proitable of the year on the back bets.

Where To Focus Your Attention When Backing At This Time Of Year To Make Profit

I am always sharing advice with my subscribers on how to adjust their “betting strategy” month by month, taking into account seasonal changes and what angles are the most profitable at different times of the year.

My strategy when backing horses at the start of the jumps season and through to Xmas is to specialise in tracking novice hurdlers and focusing on the major meetings. By focusing on horses you know in major meetings and then trying to identify the next superstars of the season going through to the major festivals after Xmas, you can build some nice profits.

Novice Hurdles Are A License To Print Money If You Know What You Are Looking For

I know all the jumps yards and how they prepare their new novice hurdlers, which yards will have them ready to win on their first few runs and which yards will need a few runs before they are ready to win. I watch every novice hurdle live every day and then re-watch them all back in the evening making notes on all the horses in the top 4 or 5, what running style they have, what ground they like and what courses they do well at. I then add these notes to my tracker, to alert me when they are next running. I then let my Email Subsribers know each morning what I am backing and why.

You can see why my Racing Profits Email Service is so popular at this time of year and over the next few months, plus why it is so hard to get a place and why I strictly limit them to only 50 people per month.

I currently have 5 spots available on my Racing Profits Email Subscription Service – So if you are seious about making money from backing horses over the next few months, check it out and subscribe here Racing Profits Email Service , while you still can. Find out why so many people love my service and come back month after month.

Look forward to working with you over the coming months and bring on the jumps 🙂

Aintree Grand National

[VIDEO] Finding The Winner Of The Grand National 2016

Finding the winner of the Grand National 2016 looks an impossible task, with so many runners, how do you do it ? I recorded this video How To Find The Winner Of The Grand National a few years ago for my YouTube Channel. However, the statistics we use to narrow down the field of the big race on Saturday, are just as effective now.

Take your time to watch the video through and then when we have the final declarations this afternoon, work your way through the field and make yourself a shortlist of the main contenders.


As you can see the key is to use the wealth of historical data, race trends and statistics to narrow down the field from 40 horses to the key contenders for the race each year. This is my favourite method to approach the race each year and some years I have had a list of 6 horses with four of them filling the top 4 places. So it is worth the effort.

Here are my Top 10 Tips for Finding The Winner Of The Grand National 2016 :

1. Weight – Look at the Top Weight – Winners generally carry less than 11st 1lb. Over the past 30 years there have only been 3 winners to carry more. However, since the fences have got slightly easier over the years, this has not been as much of a factor with Don’t Push It in 2010 , Neptune Collonges in 2012 and last year Many Clouds carried 11st 9lb to victory, so you can see why he is so popular this year only carrying 1lb more. Although the ground looks like it could be alot softer than last year and weight could well be a factor.
NOTE: Also look at the Minimum Weight of 10 st – Only 2 winners in the past 26 years have carried the minimum 10 st – so again you can safely exclude any horses on minimum weight.
2. Age – The sweet spot for a winner’s age is between 8 – 12yrs old. All of the past 26 winners have fallen in this age group. Over the past few years the race has been dominated by 10 / 11 yo, Many Clouds was 8yrs old when he won it last year.
NOTE: Avoid Younger horses of 6 / 7 yrs old, as they do not tend to have the experience or stamina to win the race. So dismiss all horses under 8yrs old or older than 12yrs old.
3. Sex – The last mare to win the race was Nickel Coin in 1951 – so avoid female horses.
4. Stamina – Proven stamina – the past 20 winners have all won a race over 3m or more in that season. Even Mon Mome, the 100/1 winner in 2009 had won a race over 3m in December 2008.
5. Experience – Naturally horses with more experience do well at Aintree, as the jumping test demands it. All of the last 26 winners have run at least 10 times over fences before competing in the Grand National. Check back in the horse form and make sure they have at least 10 chase runs.
6. Greys – Only 2 grey horses in the history of the Grand National have won the race. The last was Nicolaus Silver in 1961.
7. Blinkers – In the past 40 yrs only 2 horses have won wearing blinkers. Comply or Die in 2008 and Earth Summit in 1998. So avoid horses with blinkers.
8. Odds – The market tends to get the race correct. Particularly when there has been little rain and the ground is good. The big priced winners tend to come when the ground is soft and it makes the race even more of a stamina test. Focus on the horses priced at 25/1 or less in the market – 20 winners from the past 26 years have come from this price range.
NOTE: This stat has been overturned twice in the past 5 years, although both of those years were on softer ground – with Neptune Collonges in 2012 at 33/1, Auroras Encore 2013 at 66/1. So the odds on the 2016 winner to be over 25/1 in the market are slim, particularly with the forecast ground.
9. One Win – Only 2 horse of the last 26 winners have recorded more than one win in the season, that was Ballabriggs the 2011 winner and Many Clouds last year’s winner. So you can safely discount horses with multiple wins that season.
10. Previous Winner – Only Red Rum has ever won the Grand National more than once, so any returning winners can be discounted from your shortlist.

So go through the list of runners tomorrow afternoon or on Saturday morning and put a line through each of them if they do not fit the criteria. Be ruthless and see what you have left on your list at the end. You will be surprised.

Enjoy the big race and make sure you check back here to www.RacingProfits.net on Saturday when I will reveal my shortlist of horses for the Grand National.

Racing Profits Email Service Makes +30pts Profit In September 2015

Well for some reason September always seems to be a great month for me betting wise and last month was another fantastic month for my selections and the Racing Profits Selections email subscribers – we made a fantastic profit of +30pts !

Consistency was the name of the game with 16 winners across the month

As you can see from the full results below, The month started slowly with a couple of winners in the first week, both pretty short prices too, but then gathered momentum with four winners in the 2nd week – Equity Risk 7/2, Hope Cove 9/2, Kalifourchon 11/8 and Gretchen at 9/2 at Doncaster.

Check out the PDF below for the full results for September 2015:

Racing Profits Selections September 2015

Racing profits selections

We then started the 3rd week of the month with two more winners from three bets including Cousin Khee at Stratford who looked on too good a mark to ignore going back over hurdles after nearly 3 years on the flat and so he proved storming home to victory.We then finished the week with back to back winners up at Ayr, the highlight of which has to be Quiet Reflection on the Friday who I really fancied to overturn the short priced favourite Easton Angel who she had finished only 2 lengths behind at York in the Lowther. She was advised at a massive 11/1 to my subscribers in the morning and went on to win at 8/1.

The month finished in a similar vein with four winners on the following Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and a fantastic double on Monday 28th to cap the month, with Calvinist at 9/4 and Scots Fern at 5/1 both winning for us.

Patrick’s Lay Of The Day For Day 2

Each day Patrick Weaver, Racing Editor from the Daily Express, will put up a daily lay for you. Here is Patrick’s Lay today:

2.30 – Mustajeeb

Patrick Says: “was placed in the Irish 2,000 Guineas, is likely to start shorter than he is entitled to simply because he was third to Kingman who won on the opening day. MUWAARY and BIG TIME are his equal and there are others who could improve past him.”

RECOMMENDED LAY: Mustajeeb

How To Win £7.5m On Today’s Scoop 6 – Our Shortlist For Betting On Horse Racing

Well the Betfred / Tote bandwagon is banging it’s drum loudly about the size of today’s Scoop 6 jackpot and with good reason, as today’s fund could reach how to win the scoop 6a massive £7.5 million, made up of a win fund of £4.5 million plus a chance to share in next weekends £3 million bonus.

I have long believed that this is one of the best ways for an ordinary lay punter to win big when betting on horse racing and there are a number of ways to get involved.

How To Get Involved ?

You can do a straight Scoop6 bet with a selection for each of the 6 races. You could do permutations (or Perms) where you have a number of horses in each of the 6 races and you mix up each of the possible results from those horses. However, this can get expensive very quickly, as with 2 horses in each of the 6 races you are looking at 64 possibe results, so even at £2 you will need to invest £128 stake. If you narrow the fields down to 4 horses in each race you are going to be staking over £8000. Which leads to the 3rd way of getting involved which is to join a Scoop6 Syndicate, where a group of you place a number of permutations each saturday.

RPG Scoop6 Syndicate

This is one of the ideas we have been discussing at Racing Profits Guides Ltd, as we are already analysing so many races on a Saturday anyway, we feel it is something we could set up with a select group of subscribers and run every Saturday. If this is something that would be of interest to you then email me personally on richard@racingprofitsguides.com and I will keep you informed of our progress on this service.

Today’s Shortlist For Each Race

Just to help you along the way I thought I would share with you my thoughts and selections on each race and give you a shorlist of horses to look at for your own Scoop6 bet:

1:50 Haydock

2:20 Lingfield

2:40 Ascot

2:45 Nottingham

3:30 Haydock

3:50 Ascot

Join The Clan Queen’s Prize Kelinni Taurus Twins Swing Bowler Heaven’s Guest

Big Hands Harry Kallisha Pether’s Moon Exotic Guest Songsmith Redvers
Trackmate Moonrise Landing Harrogate Fair Life and Soul Bertiewhittle
Excellent Guest
Captain Ramius
Ruwaiyan

As you can see it is all very possible until that last race of the day at Ascot in which could make a case for anyone of the 25 runners. Which is why it is so hard to win – but not impossible. 🙂
