Matt’s Money Makers – 7th February

All roads lead to Cheltenham with the main focus for me being on two potential RSA Chase or Gold Cup horses depending on their Newbury runs go. In the Denman Chase (2:25 Newbury) Coneygree goes up against more experienced rivals despite being the same age. If he wins this he will probably go to the […]

Matt’s Money Makers: 31st January

Last weekend was quite good seeing as there were two winners from three runners. Looking at the races that contain Cheltenham contenders to start as we build-up to the festival in March. First up is the Betfred “Keep it fun” contenders hurdle, which sees Jollyallan and Bristol De Mai. Both are unbeaten in hurdles races […]

Matt’s Money Makers – 17th January

As part of my Sports Journalism university course I undertake a six-week work placement. Luckily for me I start this on Monday at Sporting Life, which will hopefully broaden my knowledge and lead to even better winners for this blog! Turning my attention tomorrow sees Haydock holding an 8am inspection. The current ground is listed […]

Matt’s Money Makers – 10th January

2:15 Wetherby Indian Voyage (7/1) knows his way around Wetherby as do a few of his competitors and no ground issues whatever the clerk confirms. He is a useful type of this distance and looks well handicapped with Daragh Bourke, taking 5lbs off. Horse and jockey have a good relationship winning three of five races […]

World Darts Championship – The Final

As I said the Final would be double Dutch! How wrong was that? Anderson was sensational in beating Michael van Gerwen 6-3 and Phil Taylor eased past Raymond Van Barneveld 6-2. This is a case of will the pressure get to Anderson and affect his game. If he plays to his best then I would […]

Matt’s Money Makers – 3rd January

Today’s cards look terribly disappointing and don’t leave me with much action to fill your pockets with the bookies cash. There are only three selections and a little moan about the Grade 1 Tolworth Hurdle.   12:30 Newcastle First up is Yorkist (6/4) in this Novice’s Chase. Despite the 6lb for his win last time […]

Matt’s Money Makers – New Year’s Day

Happy New Year! Here’s to a successful 2015 with lots of winners, starting today! 12:10 Cheltenham Zeroshadesofgrey (5/2) has won three from three hurdles races so far and has taken to them very well. His winning distance in those three races total up to 69l and those come on heavy/soft ground, but he has started […]

Matt’s Money Makers – 27th December

A good day yesterday saw four winners and two placed horses from nine selections, which was fairly good with the amount of racing taking place. If you missed it you will need to re-watch Faugheen’s magnificent victory. Turning attention to today’s racing there are a few extra factors to take into mind. Firstly the weather, […]

Merry Christmas, I hope you all got the presents you wanted alongside eating and drinking well! I’m still feeling its effects writing this, but here goes! If you didn’t have enough yesterday, tuck into the Sporting extravaganza that includes King George day at Kempton and lots of football.   12:50 Kempton Arzal (7/2) and Jollyallan […]

Matt’s Money Makers – 20th December (updated)

1:00 Haydock In this five runner Novices Chase, preference has to be for Boondooma (2/1) WINNER. He was second last time out up against Melodic Rendezvous, who was on chasing debut, and was only beaten by a half a length in what most expected a routine victory for Melodic Rendezvous. The main danger would come […]

Matt’s Money Makers – 13th December

From the three tips yesterday, two were winners and Sybarite finished like a train but only managed fourth.   12:15 Cheltenham Hargam made an encouraging debut in a Grade 2 here last month finishing second behind Golden Doyen. Karezak (4/1) beat Golden Doyen on his debut and was only beaten by a neck last time […]

Matt’s Money Makers – 12th December

Today is the beginning of Christmas for me as I break up from university. Over this busy Christmas period of racing I’ll still be here, trying to make it a profitable festive period for us all. 12:20 Bangor A weak four runner field where triple Grade 2 hurdle winner Melodic Rendezvous (1/3) should show his […]

Matt’s Money Makers – 29th November

Yesterday was a good day with Tullyesker Hill winning at Newbury at 10/1, whilst my two other selections were both second. Today’s racing mostly looks uninspiring in terms of betting, especially away from Newbury’s Hennessy Day, but these are my picks.   1:05 Newcastle This novice’ hurdle races looks to lack depth, but could have […]
