Thought of the Day: I'm off to Somerset for the first Chetenham Preview Evening of the year which I'll report back on in Tuesday's column as it's a big one featuring Paul Nicholls, Dan Skelton, Joe Tizzard and Richard Johnson but, as it's a 4 hour drive, therefore today's race previews will be a shorter 'skeleton' service. Will Steele's 4/1 recommendation in the AJ-Ruiz fight was a winning one and he will return tomorrow morning to cover Fury v Wilder II.
With Christmas out of the way, we are now firmly working towards the Cheltenham Festival and who better than Paul Jones, the pioneer and author of the first 16 editions of the Weatherbys-published Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide to be your guide in the build up to and throughout those four days in March? It is fair to say that we have enjoyed a very good jumps season in the big handicaps following a golden autumn on the Flat with Potters Corner (33/1) in the Welsh Grand National, Pic D'Orhy (33/1) in the Betfair Hurdle, De Rasher Counter (12/1) in the Ladbrokes Trophy, Vintage Clouds (10/1) in the Peter Marsh Chase and Walk In The MIll (10/1) for the Becher Chase amongst others (rationale for all recommendations can be read in 'View Example copy' on right-hand menu). We also enjoyed a successful Cheltenham Festival in 2019 where we showed an individual profit on each of the four days and overall level stakes profit of +31 points for the meeting (taking us up to 82 points LSP since that service started in 2008) and a very successful spring thereafter with Talkischeap (20/1 Bet365 Gold Cup) and Burrows Saint (16/1 Irish Grand National) recommended in the Ante Post Focus column.
In February 2018 Paul self-published his book on his betting theories and philosophies From Soba To Moldova containing 20 chapters. If you would like to receive a free copy (minus £2.50 postage) then please use the Get In Touch section at the bottom of the Home Page.
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 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 and provides Horses to Follow columns during the Flat Season which have also been profitable to follow. He will also cover 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 Golf, Tennis, Cricket, Darts, Snooker, 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. The summer/autumn of 2020 will prove to be particularly busy being European Football Championships, Olympic Games, T20 Cricket World Cup and Ryder Cup year.
