Jumps Season Trendspotting


First up are the statistics often the first port-of-call for many punters weighing up a bet, and that’s the overall records of trainers.


There is no getting away from the fact that a jockey, and the decisions they make, are one of the most important factors in determining the outcome of a race.


One of the most underestimated factors investors tend to take into account when placing a bet is a horse’s breeding.


One of the attractions attached to every new season is knowing which historic events lie ahead in the racing calendar, in particular those that provided a rich source of future talent – like a specific college or university churning out an above-par graduate.


Plenty of backers focus on handicaps where juicy prices are available, and though the majority of runners in such races are often exposed, it can pay to keep on the right side of those still unexposed that have yet to show their full hand to the handicapper.

Betting and Placepot

The Placepot is one of the most popular bets across the betting shops, online firms and racecourses on a daily basis, and where punters can win a tidy sum for just a small outlay.
