Punchestown Festival 2013 – Day 2 Tips

The Punchestown Festival got off to a flyer yesterday and we managed to solve some of the puzzles tipping up 3 winners to end the day +11pts in profit.

A fantastic field will line up for The Punchestown Gold Cup today and we should be in for a real treat as some of the best chasers go head to head again!

We have a few strong fancies today but don’t forget to take advantage of Bet Victor’s Mullins cashback offer; where they will be refunding your stake (as a free bet) if your selections finished 2nd to any Willie Mullins-trained winner. We cannot stress how good of an offer this could turn out to be!

Punchestown Festival 2013 – Day 1 Tips

Although the Flat season is well and truly underway and the Newmarket Guineas meeting is fast approaching, the Punchestown Festival takes centre stage this week with some top class jumping action from Tuesday through to Saturday.

Sprinter Sacre is the star of Day 1, but you won’t get rich backing at 1/6 and so we’re delving into the form to try and find some value across today’s 7 races!

Today’s card is tough so keep stakes low, particularly in the 3:40, 4:55, 6:05 and 7:15. The key is to be patient as there will be much better value to be had later in the week. And don’t forget to take advantage of the offers available (highlighted below) as we’ll be tipping up with the cashback/refund offers in mind as a ‘back-up’.

There is no doubt that the john Smith’s Grand National creates a betting buzz like so other sporting event in the world. The race is steeped in history and is the ultimate test of skill, experience and endurance, for both horses and jockeys alike.

The 30 fences that the horses must jump at Aintree are like no others, and simply getting around the 4m4f unscathed is an achievement in itself, let alone winning the prestigious race! Lottery was the first winner of the Grand National, but since then there have been countless other memories; none more so that the great Red Rum, who won the chase on three occasions (in 1973, 74 and 77) and remains the only horse to do so.

In 1981 jockey Bob Champion completed an amazing story onboard Aldaniti, having battled back from life-threatening cancer only two years earlier. But regularly picking the Grand National winner takes much more than choosing a horse based on it’s name or the colours of the jockey’s silks.

Over the years some remarkable stats have emerged, and we can use these trends to narrow down the 40-runner field into a shortlist. For example, in the last 19 years, 17 of those winners had previously won a race over fences against 12 or more rivals. So why would stats like that be ignored? Here we take a detailed look through some of the other key trends in the hope of narrowing down a shortlist and tipping up the winner of the 2012 John Smith’s Grand National. [Read full article »]
