Successful horse racing punters are famous for carrying their little black books where they can record various snippets that can be used at a later date. But before they even get that far, it is essential that they have the names of the trainers at Newmarket and the horses under their training. This information is freely available on Trainers web sites and newsletters, plus newspapers such as the Racing Post
Once those details are logged, the next step is to check out the history of an individual horse. The following will be needed:
- Grade of horse
- Past performances
This can be time consuming but it will provide the perfect foundation to an ad hoc data base, that can be added and subtracted to as and when necessary.
Information that will be next required are the training performances, i.e that is gallop reports, trainer TV Interviews, media reports, bookmaker reports web site notes, specialist web site reports, general health and where possible confirmation of race targets
Once this stage is reached it is vital to keep on top of the information and maintain the data base. But at least by this stage a punter will know, the horse, its trainer, to some extent its ability, its home form, its health and its race targets for the season.
Big races tend to have a lengthy antepost market, but for the lesser races the markets are usually created on the day of the race. Whatever the case it is essential for the punter to have some idea of what the Bookmakers think. This is usually shown in the betting, where obviously the fancied horses in a race are given the shorter odds.
Any Newmarket punter worth his salt will have a good idea of the challenge of the two Newmarket courses, the Rowley Mile and the July Course and will know whether or not the draw and the stalls in any race will offer any advantage or disadvantage.
Most stables have their own stable jockey's, but not all and some very revealing information can be gleaned by who is booked to ride a given horse. Punters should be very familiar with the ability of the jockeys at Newmarket and very often significant jockey bookings can highlight the confidence held in a horse.
It is always a good tip to note who the leading Newmarket trainers are. Some have better strike rates than others and it is those who's horses a punter should follow. additionally some horses can perform better on one track than they can on another, so once again, identification of horses for courses is a very good tip.
On race days at Newmarket Fixtures, tips tend to fly around Newmarket Town and the course on a non stop basis. Whilst this can be rewarding, it usually just confuses the punters original thoughts about a horse and/or a race. Additionally, every National and local newspaper will offer tips and suggestions, as will a whole multitude of web sites, tipping lines are another as are specialist tipsters found in the Racing post and on the TV in programmes such as ATR and RUK. The advice here is stick by your guns unless it becomes absolutely certain that an alternative will have a better chance than that selected by the punter.
