Thought of the Day: There will be Cheltenham Festival recommendations in tonight's column at 7.00 p.m. which also coincides with the official launch of the Eurovision Song Contest on BBC2 which I am sure that you will all be glued to. It's taking place at St George's Hall in Liverpool which is also the venue for the launch of the Grand National in a few weeks' time. Let's hope that Nicky Henderson hasn't been on the sauce and got his dates mixed up or he'll be in for a surprise when Rylan Clark and AJ Odudu take to the stage and not Ed Chamberlin.
"Paul applies both his sophisticated understanding of racing and years of experience in analysis to finding the best betting angles for his loyal fanbase. He takes on an enormous scale of work so that you don't have to. Reading what he has to say often sparks a fresh thought process in my mind or challenges my own conclusions. Whether I end up agreeing with him or not, it's always worthwhile. If you like thinking about racing, this is the place for you."
Lydia Hislop, Broadcaster and Journalist
In a significant change after seven years since launching the website, from October 21st 2022 onwards the website is dedicated to jumps racing. The Jumps Season Service coverage will still be as intensive as ever featuring all the usual columns. In fact, the jumps coverage is actually being beefed up as the Ante Post Focus and Big Race Trends columns will move across from the old All-Inclusive Service and, in addition, the popular weekly Beating The Bias column will switch from being a pure flat-based article into being a dedicated jumps season horses to follow column going forward.
If you would like to join Paul, the author of the first 16 editions of The Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide and regular coumnist for Attheraces, for the 2022/23 jumps season (membership is £595) please contact [email protected].
The weekend Race Previews will continue throughout the jumps season as usual in addition to also covering Friday’s racing for the six weeks leading up to Christmas, all days of the Cheltenham, Aintree and Punchestown Festivals and the best of Christmas Week.
As for the 17 weekly Cheltenham Festival columns ahead of 11 consecutive daily columns in the week before and during the meeting, they will recommence on Tuesday, October 25th. Then a short break as usual until they return on Tuesdays at 7.00 p.m. after the Cheltenham November Meeting. We enjoyed another profitable Cheltenham last season and that service is now showing a +147 points LSP since it started in 2008.
Once we’re into the flow of the Jumps Season Service the weekly schedule will be as follows:
Monday: Andy Richmond’s Beating The Bias (morning)
Tuesday: Cheltenham Festival Column (7.00 p.m.)
Wednesday: Ante Post Focus (1.00 p.m.)
Thursday: Friday Race Previews (for six weeks in the lead up to Christmas) (mid-late afternoon)
Friday: Weekend Race Previews (on very busy weekends this could be split into two columns over two days) (mid-late afternoon)
Not dealing with any flat racing or sport anymore also means that Paul can fully concentrate on jumps racing (what he is best known for and what the vast majority of members sign up for) but he can still give some sports-based fancies in the Thought of the Day on the home page until the end of the Punchestown Festival after which point the website will lay dormant until the 2023/24 Jumps Season Service.
In the first two years after the launch of the website Paul nailed huge-priced winners of the two highest-profile races to members recommending Rule The World (50/1) to win the Grand National and Wings Of Eagles (40/1) to win the Derby. Feel free to peruse through examples of other big-priced, recommended winners by clicking on 'View Example Copy' in the right-hand menu and you can also read a betting-related Q&A with Paul that appeared in On Course Profits magazine in the 'Bio' section to give an even better idea of how the website operates and thought processes behind its content. Paul's monthly blog is also available for all to view and if you have enquiries about the services or wish to view recent examples please get in touch by emailing [email protected] and questions and queries will be happily answered.
Best known for being the author and architect of the Weatherbys-published Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide between 2000-2015 (and 34 books in total) and an analyst for Attheraces since 2003, Paul has a wealth of experience and has built up a long-standing, industry-respected reputation as a trusted, reliable and profitable-to-follow betting analyst with a high work ethic covering trends and fresh thinking for a range of sports specialising in horseracing and written in an entertaining and conversationalist-style format. Paul’s rationale is aimed at punters who are interested in an additional source of information who enjoy out-of-the-box thinking and a second opinion to formulate his views alongside their own.
Paul has been running a successful horseracing service since 2008 so his contrarian-approach analysis has stood the test of time and is subscribed to by professional punters and smaller-stakes punters alike including high-profile horseracing figures and leading owners. This website (launched November 2015) is not an out-and-out tipping service, more of an overall analysis of races and is aimed at those who already possess a good knowledge of horseracing.
In addition to Paul giving his views on the weekend racing for the Jumps Season, he also provides an 18 weeks' build up to the Cheltenham Festival, a look ahead to the weekend's action most Wednesdays in Ante Post Focus which has been proved to be particularly lucrative with many big-priced winners of leading races and he will also research Race Trends for the major jumps festivals and leading jumps handicaps.
If that has whetted your appetite then please drop Paul a message on [email protected].
