Thought of the Day: There are not too many better Fridays in the sporting calendar than today; the middle day of the middle test of The Ashes, the best of the four days of the Ebor Meeting, Aston Villa v Everton and then the end of the second round of the Tour Championship. Hoping for a good day for Hazlewood, Dods, Grealish and Koepka.
After a successful Cheltenham Festival where we showed an individual profit on each of the four days and and overall level stakes profit of +31 points for the meeting and a successful spring thereafter with Talkischeap (20/1 Bet365 Gold Cup) and Burrows Saint (16/1 Irish Grand National) winning for the Ante Post Focus column (and Liverpool to win the Champions League at 12/1), Paul Jones, the author of the first 16 editions of the Weatherbys-published Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide and his book From Soba To Moldova (published 2018) with the assistance of experts in their respective fields are here to guide you through all the major horseracing and sporting action over the summer and beyond.
In less than two years since the launch of the website Paul has already 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 fortnightly 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 Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide between 2000-2015 (and 34 books in total), 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 ethos 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, leading owners and on-course bookmakers. This website (launched November 2015) is aimed at those who already possess a good knowledge of horseracing and there are two subscription-based alternatives; The Jumps Season Service for six months and The All-Inclusive Service for 12 months. Please click on both options to see exactly what both services entail.
In addition to Paul giving his views on the weekend racing for the Jumps Season, he also provides a 17 weeks' build up to the Cheltenham Festival, a 6 weeks' build up to Royal Ascot, a look ahead to the weekend's action most Wednesdays in Ante Post Focus which has been proved to be particularly lucrative and provides Horses to Follow columns during the Flat Season which have also been profitable to follow. He will also preview the leading 30 days on the Flat including all the big Festivals and covers Race Trends for 120 races throughout the year including all races at the Cheltenham Festival, Grand National Meeting and Royal Ascot.
If you love your sport then there is also plenty to get your teeth stuck into including betting-related copy from specialists in Golf, Tennis, Cricket, Darts, Boxing and NFL (and Politics) in addition to Paul covering most of the year's other big sporting events including the weekly football Premier League Picks column. We also have a Guest Contributions section featuring regular horseracing writers such as Alan Potts (author of Against The Crowd and The Inside Track) and Andy Richmond (RacingTV).
