anyone keen to write Cheltenham previews?

I'm not confident of having the time to do any previews next week for the Festival, do any of the amateur bloggers/pundits out there want to have a go? I can't pay you anything for it but happy to plug you here, on Twitter etc. My readership is quite widespread, not just diehard National Hunt fans so I'd like to see something which would appeal to a wider audience - i.e. possibly people discovering Cheltenham for the first time and wondering what it's all about.

Here a couple of examples of race previews I've written for major meetings, something along these lines would be preferred.

Hong Kong Mile preview

Melbourne Cup preview

Drop me a line via the comments or on Twitter if you're interested! Hoping for a variety of writers, so you can take one race or several spread out over the week. No SEO/affiliate linked content allowed, I'll just give you a plug and links back to your site if applicable.

  1. about half the races taken so far, anyone else interested? Previews will go up the day before the race in most cases...

Thanks for your comments, but if you're a spammer, you've just wasted your time - it won't get posted.

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...
