Thought of the Day: An awful long way to go but a nice start from my 33/1 e/w World Snooker recommendation, Kyren Wilson, as he leads Matthew Stevens 7-2 on Day 1 but, even better, the two-time defending champion Mark Selby, the big fish in Wilson's half of the draw, has already departed plus the tournament favourite O'Sullivan is in trouble too trailing 6-3. Selby's opening-day elimination should not have been a shock to anyone who read Pages 29 and 30 of From Soba To Moldova.
After a very successful Cheltenham Festival where we had three winning ante-post recommendations at 20/1 (Farclas), 16/1 (Summerville Boy) and 10/1 (Rathvinden), we are looking forward to the remainder of a hectic spring schedule. Paul Jones, the author of the first 16 editions of the Weatherbys-published Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide and his new book From Soba To Moldova (published February 2018) is here to guide you through the action.
In less than two years since the launch of the website Paul has already nailed huge-priced winners of the two highest-profile races to members recommending Rule The World (50/1) to win the Grand National and Wings Of Eagles (40/1) to win the Derby. Feel free to take a peek at recent examples of other big-priced winners by clicking on 'View Example Copy' in the right-hand menu. Paul's weekly blog is available for all to view and if you have enquiries about the services or wish to view recent examples please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and questions and queries will be happily answered.
Best known for being the author and architect of the Weatherbys-published Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide for 16 years (and 34 books in total), Paul has a wealth of experience and has built up a long-standing, industry-respected reputation as a trusted, reliable and profitable-to-follow betting analyst with a high work ethos covering trends and fresh thinking for a range of sports specialising in horseracing and written in an entertaining and conversationalist-style format. Paul’s rationale is aimed at punters who are interested in an additional source of information who enjoy out-of-the-box thinking and a second opinion to formulate his views alongside their own.
Paul has been running a successful horseracing service since 2008 so his contrarian-approach analysis has stood the test of time and is subscribed to by professional punters and smaller-stakes punters alike including high-profile horseracing figures, leading owners and on-course bookmakers. This website (launched November 2015) is aimed at those who already possess a good knowledge of horseracing and there are two subscription-based alternatives; The Jumps Season Service for six months and The All-Inclusive Service for 12 months. Please click on both options to see exactly what both services entail.
In addition to Paul giving his views on the weekend racing for the Jumps Season, he also provides a 18 weeks' build up to the Cheltenham Festival, a 6 weeks' build up to Royal Ascot, a look ahead to the weekend's action most Wednesdays in Ante Post Focus which has been proved to be particularly lucrative and provides Horses to Follow columns during the Flat Season which have also been profitable to follow. He will also preview the leading 30 days on the Flat including all the big Festivals and covers Race Trends for 120 races throughout the year including covering all races at the Cheltenham Festival, Grand National Meeting and Royal Ascot.
If you love your sport then there is also plenty to get your teeth stuck into including betting-related copy from specialists in Golf, Tennis, Cricket, Darts and NFL (and Politics and Eurovision) in addition to Paul covering most of the year's other big sporting events including the weekly football Premier League Picks column which showed a very healthy profit last season. We also have a Guest Contributions section featuring regular horseracing writers such as Alan Potts (author of Against The Crowd and The Inside Track), Andy Richmond (RacingUK) and Mark Ball (formerly ran Let's Live Racing).
