Thought of the Day: After yesterday's first rehearsal Italy were cut from fourth-favs into 7/2 favourite for Eurovision so hopefully you took the 9/1 indicated in the penultimate blog. As for Gear Up, he'll be better over another 2f and the race didn't really pan out for him missing the break slightly so he wasn't where they wanted to be and the slow early pace was also against him. He still goes to Epsom with an each-way shout.
"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."

Following our best ever Cheltenham Festival (Heaven Help Us 33/1, Put The Kettle On ante post 16/1, Mrs Milner 14/1, Allaho ante post 12/1, Chantry House ante post 12/1 and oh so close with A Plus Tard ante post each-way 66/1) in addition to other winners (Black Tears, Galvin (ante post) and the straight forecast in the Ballymore) and finding the Grand National winner again (Minella Times 11/1), if you would like to join the author of the first 16 editions of The Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide as we tackle the rest of the busy spring period on the jumps and flat and into the a huge summer of sport (and racing) and beyond, please contact [email protected].
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, leading owners and on-course bookmakers. This website (launched November 2015) is not an out-and-out tipping service, more of an overall analysis of races and sports events and 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 an 18 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 with many big-priced winners of leading races and covers the leading Festivals on the Flat. He will also research Race Trends for 150+ 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 Tennis, Cricket, Darts, Snooker, Rugby Union, Boxing and NFL (and Politics) in addition to Paul covering most of the year's other big sporting events including Football and Golf. And 2021 will be particularly busy on the sports front with Euro 2020, the Ryder Cup, T20 Cricket World Cup and The Olympic Games all put back a year due to Covid so what better year than to sign up to the All-Inclusive Service?
If that was whetted your appetite then please drop Paul a message on [email protected].
