Bettorlogic signs up with SportRadar

If you don't know much about these two companies, then you've probably only been a customer of bookmakers rather than work for them.

BettorLogic is a rather sophisticated database of sporting stats, predominantly football, but they do cover other sports (rugby, golf, cricket, tennis) from time-to-time. The FormLabs product is brilliant - you can run queries such as "how does this team go when 0-1 at home after 63 minutes against teams in the bottom 6?" etc - but the layout is quite daunting the first few times you use it.

SportRadar (also known as BetRadar) supply a service to bookmakers which alerts them if they list a game with the incorrect start time, or the odds move in a big way etc. Very useful in this era when bookies cover sport around the globe, most of which they will never ever see on TV.

This week at the BetMarkets conference in Vienna, a partnership between the two companies was announced.

Very interesting to note that Andrew (Bert) Black, the brains behind Betfair, and Nigel Payne, former Sportingbet CEO, are behind Bettorlogic. That's a ringing endorsement for the quality of the venture.

Kentucky Derby preview

It's America's big day of racing, where 90% of them will be there to be seen and most won't have a clue what difference Churchill Downs Inc's latest takeout hike does to shaft them on every bet placed. Throw in the standard arguments about race-day medication in the US and the recent New York Times/PETA expose on yesterday's Oaks-winning trainer Steve Asmussen, and racing in North America could be in better health.

Still, it's one of the elite races and great occasions of the world, and stepping up to the plate is Jon da Silva again, @creamontop, with his preview in a very American style. (No I don't understand Brisnet figures either...)

Henry VIII Novices’ Chase

It's not just about the Tingle Creek tomorrow at Sandown, there's a Grade 1 Novice Chase amongst the rather decent supporting card. Lining up for the preview is astute NH enthusiast Sam Tribe, @samtribe87.

Racing Post Henry VIII Novices’ Chase
Grade 1 Chase, 2 Miles
Sandown 13:50
Likely going Soft, Good to Soft in places


With doubts concerning the fitness of last year’s Queen Mother Chase winner Sire De Grugy and of the two mile chase king Sprinter Sacre (despite bullish remarks from Henderson) there is a chance for another to step into the limelight. Both have won the feature race of the day, The Tingle Creek Chase and that will more than likely throw a few into the hat. However, I have chosen to take a look at the Henry VIII chase, which was changed to a grade 1 in 2011 and has been won by some nice prospects in the past (Somersby and Al Ferof to name but a few). Let’s hope that a potential Champion Chase contender of the future will feature in this …

lay the field - my favourite racing strategy

Dabbling with laying the field in-running at various prices today, not just one price, but several in the same race. Got several matched in the previous race at Brighton, then this race came along at Nottingham. Such a long straight at Nottingham makes punters often over-react and think the finish line is closer than it actually is. As you can see by the number of bets matched, there was plenty of volatility in this in-play market. It's rare you'll get a complete wipe-out with one horse getting matched at all levels, but it can happen, so don't give yourself too much risk...
