More information on the form - = New racing season / = Missed racing season P = was pulled-up and didn’t finish the race F = horse fell U = rider unseated R = horse refused to race CO = the horse was forced out of a race by a loose horse B = horse was brought down S = horse slipped r = the horse ran around a jump or took the wrong course in a flat race D = disqualified Bold form figures = performance in All-weather (Flat) or point-to-point (Jump) races

EACH HORSE HAS BEEN GIVEN A STAR RATING, DEFINITION BELOW: Unlikely to win but not totally without hope. Selected to win the race. Can be given little or no chance. Good chance of being placed. By no means out of the reckoning but at least one or two hold stronger claims.

BET TING WITH THE BOOKMAKERS DIFFERENT WAYS TO BET - WIN OR EACH-WAY

The two main types of bet are win and each-way. For win bets, your horse needs to win the race outright. An each-way bet is effectively two bets – one for your horse to win and one for it to be placed. So a £2 each-way bet will cost £4. A bookmaker taking each-way bets will display the terms on which they accept such bets on their board. In conjunction with The RCA, the bookmakers have introduced standard each-way terms. Bookmakers will provide these terms, or better, when offering each-way betting. • Fewer than 3 runners - Win bets only, no places offered • 3 or 4 runners – Win bets only . Where a bookmaker wishes to depart from this default position they may offer place terms at 1/5 odds a place 1-2. • 5 – 7 runners (inclusive) – 1/4 odds a place 1-2 • 8 or more runners – 1/5 odds a place 1-2-3 • Handicaps with 12 to 15 runners (inclusive) – 1/4 odds a place 1-2-3 • Handicaps with 16 to 21 runners (inclusive) – 1/5 odds a place 1-2-3-4 • Handicaps with 22 or more runners – 1/4 odds a place 1-2-3-4

PL ACING YOUR BET

Shop around for the best odds. When you have decided where to place your bet, state the number of your horse and the stake, for example “Number 4, £2 win”. Listen to the bookmaker repeat the number of the horse and the stake to their clerk and hand them your money. You will then be given an itemised receipt detailing your bet and potential winnings. You should keep this safe until you have heard ‘Weighedin’ announced after the race. If your bet is successful, hand your ticket to the bookmaker and they will give you your winnings.

PLAY SMARTER

ON THE WILD SIDE quickly made up into a fairly useful winning hurdler and is fancied to make light of an absence after a wind op and make a successful start over fences for his excellent handler. Spider’s Bite is enjoying a good spell at present so is feared most with C&D scorer Methodtothemadness also well in the mix.

PLAY SMARTER

FOLLOW YOUR FIRE has been ticking along nicely over hurdles this season and gets the nod to capitalise on a mark 4lb lower in this sphere. Captain Cobajay is an obvious threat, while last year’s winner Graystown goes well at this track and is sure to be in the thick of the action if none the worse for his tumble last week.
