Help us to raise £20k for horse racing charities!

I want to raise £20k for the four main charities we support here at Post Racing, they being The IJF, Greatwood, Racing Welfare and The Bob Champion Cancer Trust.

This will be done using the Post Racing Specials to raise those funds and in return for your getting involved, we’ll be doing our best to make sure the layers pay for your donations.

All we ask you to do is visit one of these four websites:

THE IJF
RACING WELFARE
GREATWOOD
THE BOB CHAMPION CANCER TRUST

Just click on a name, it will take you directly to their donation pages.

Once there, make a donation of £20, £30 or £40

*Please add Gift Aid if you are eligible to do so.

I would be most grateful if you could leave a message for the chosen charity that simply reads PR SPECIALS DONATION, so the charity has a record that the donation was made in respect of this initiative.

You then forward your donation receipt to us at admin@postracing.co.uk

If you donate £20 you will receive our Cheltenham Special which includes:

  • FULL CHELTENHAM FESTIVAL PROFILING
  • FULL RATINGS FOR BOTH CHELTENHAM AND ALL OFF MEETINGS
  • OVERNIGHT MARKET MOVERS
  • MORNING MARKET MOVERS

If you donate £30 you will receive:

  • FULL CHELTENHAM AND AINTREE FESTIVAL PROFILING
  • FULL RATINGS FOR BOTH CHELTENHAM, AINTREE AND ALL OFF MEETINGS
  • OVERNIGHT MARKET MOVERS
  • MORNING MARKET MOVERS

If you donate £40 you will receive:

  • FULL CHELTENHAM/AINTREE AND ROYAL ASCOT FESTIVAL PROFILING
  • FULL RATINGS FOR ALL THREE MEETINGS AND ALL OFF MEETINGS
  • OVERNIGHT MARKET MOVERS
  • MORNING MARKET MOVERS

To give you some idea of the quality of work you will receive, read on (taken from the Wednesday of the 2018 Festival)

FRED WINTER

You will remember my post about those races that chuck out the most surprise results and this one was top of the shop.

Just to remind you, so you know to expect the unexpected, five of the last six winners won at 40/1, 25/1, 33/1, 25/1 and 33/1.

I’ll not be looking for a pint if I nail this thing, I’m am Edradour man.

I’ve been following a horse called ACT OF VALOUR this season as I had a feeling he’d be laid out for this and he’s here….10/1 second favourite. It’ll be interesting to see how Profiling shows him up.

I would normally hold juvenile handicap hurdles at arms length….never work on them normally because so many are making handicap debut and nobody has a blind clue about how good, or not, they are.

No point looking at age group, they are all 4-y-o’s so, weight kicks us off.

10st 6lb – 11st 6lb is where eight of the last 10 winners resided and as ACT OF VALOUR goes off 11st 7lb, it might be pedantic but, he’s gone.

I did mention too that the top trainers are most definitely the ones to concentrate on because although the prices of those winners have been huge, six of the last 10 winners (three belonging to Paul Nicholls, who trains ACT OF VALOUR), have come from those Henderson, Mullins and Elliott, with one a 33/1 shot trained by Tim Easterby.

So if I make a shortlist of horses from those yards within the weight range, we have hope (ish):

VENEER OF CHARM
GRAND SANCY

The first named is trained by Gordon Elliott, the second by Paul Nicholls.

A couple of reasons I’ll run with the Elliott horse. Firstly, it arrives having shed it’s maiden tag and as eight of there last 10 winners had won over hurdles before tomorrow, that’s sound as a stat.

Secondly, and this actually applies to both, I want a horse that also arrives having enjoyed a podium finish (no worse than 3rd), on either of it’s last two runs.

The trainer saddled 25/1 shot FLAXEN FLARE to win this a few years ago and whilst he has MITCHOUKA also running for him, he’s 10/1 joint second favourite and the norm is for one totally unconsidered by the market to pop up so….I’m rolling those dice.

POST RACING SELECTION: VENEER OF CHARM – WON 33/1

FESTIVAL BUMPER

This used to be a Mullins benefit race but time have certainly changed. He has not saddled the winner of this since 2013.

I started last seasons Profiling by saying I could not remember profiling ever finding the winner of this race but hey presto, in bolts FAYONAGH, landing us the most unlikely win ever….let alone of this race.

WEe have so little to work with that it’s minimal runes time for sure but if they produce another FAYONAGH, I’ll settle for that.

You need to be coming here aged five or six and having won last time out.

BLACKBOW
CAREFULLY SELECTED
CROOKS PEAK

FELIX DESJY
KNOW THE SCORE
MERCY MERCY ME
SEDDON
STONEY MOUNTAIN
THEBANNERKINGREBEL
THE BIG BITE
THE FLYING SOFA
TORNADO FLYER
RELEGATE

A big shortlist, I agree.

I’m now going to select those that have only won races consisting of Bumpers having 13 or more runners. Those that have not have only managed to win three of the last 11 of these:

DIDTHEYLEAVEYOUOUTTO
THE BIG BITE
RELEGATE

They are definitely priced to dutch.

My next step is to remove horses not trained in Ireland. They have produced 18 winners of the 25 runnings (six of the last 10, too), of this race and it’s quite simply bonkers to ignore that.

The only one of that trio that stands it’s ground is RELEGATE….trained by none other than Wille Mullins.

Both his Bumper wins have come in double figure sized fields and that is mighty important, as some of these are still babies and will suffer for getting a bump.

Katie Walsh rides and she rode it to win last time out @ 16/1.

It’ll go off a big price tomorrow, too and I treat this race as one I’m more interested in for next season, than for tomorrow. Small stake 20/80 for me.

POST RACING SELECTION: RELEGATE – WON 25/1
