Tom Lacey has been one of the trainers I’ve followed with massive success over the last year, especially so in both handicap hurdles and handicap Chase contests. He is a proper old-school National Hunt trainer who still rides out half-dozen or so lots each morning and never sends a horse to the races unless it’s in peak condition.
Witness his record in handicap Chase and handicap hurdle contests over the last 3 seasons with improvements in win and place strike-rates, profit and ROI, he clearly knows what he is doing.
All this found using the excellent GeeGeez Query Tool, be sure to signup to GeeGeez Gold while there is still 20% off till next week.
If we drill down a bit deeper, we can see most of the damage has been done when 3 jockeys have been on board, Robert Dunne, Richard Johnson and Tom Scudamore.
Breaking it down we can see the bulk of the profits and higher yield comes in handicap hurdale races, despite his strike-rate being higher in handicap chase contests.
By combining handicap hurdle races with one of the aforementioned 3 jockeys, we give ourselves a very selective system indeed showing a near 34% strike-rate, +94pts profit and 152% Yield over the last 3 years!
This shows the power of GeeGeez Gold and adding this in as an “angle” enables you to track qualifiers automatically on the racecards and using the GeeGeez Query Tool. Check out the video below for more detailed information on how I have used the Query Tool to build 13 systems for both the jumps and all-weather seasons. The system rules again -:

The video below again shows how versatile GeeGeez Gold is, and I highly recommend a subscription as it beats the pants over competitors that are 3 or 4 times the price.
Unless you've been living under a rock in a cave on the moon this past week, you've probably seen or heard something from Matt Bisogno about either Trainer Track Stats (TTS) or Geegeez Gold.
As well as giving away TTS, Matt's just re-opened Geegeez Gold with a very special offer. Not only is he heavily discounting subscriptions to Gold, voted the best betting website for the past two years in a row, but he's also offering fast movers the chance to have a one to one consultation with him.
In case you don't know, Geegeez Gold is a comprehensive racing and betting package that comprises state-of-the-art racecards, form tools, reports and a lot more. It's easy to navigate, easy to use, and is almost certain to move your betting up a notch.
The one to one chats with Matt will go quickly, so if you'd like the chance to speak with him about your betting, Gold, or whatever (within reason!), go here now
As well as Geegeez Gold, Matt's delivering four ‘improve your betting' webinars for subscribers over the course of the next month; and you can try his service out for as little as one pound.
I'm not sure how long this offer will be open for but what I do know is that, when it closes, he's increasing his prices by 20%. That's not a marketing tactic – quite the opposite in fact – but it is a fact.
So if you're serious about enjoying your betting more, and making it pay, you owe it to yourself to check out Geegeez Gold and this very special offer. Click here to find out more
Since I finished my own ratings service, I have found GeeGeez Gold invaluable to determine winning trends bets this flat season and have developed over a dozen systems for the jumps and All-Weather season, which can run alongside TTS qualifiers. More about that at the weekend but I heartily recommend this as a value form book, racecard and statistic/system building tool – far, far better value than other online form services, that can give you a huge edge in your betting.
p.s. prices WILL increase next week by 20%, but you will never pay a penny more than your discounted offer price for as long as you remain a subscriber.
While I have been in Spain the last 3 weeks I have built a number of potentially very profitable jumps and All-Weather systems using GeeGeez Gold Query Tool, which is a fantastic piece of kit. More of that later.
However, I’ve also had a lot of success using the PACE and the DRAW tabs as outlined and explained by Matt Bisogno from GeeGeez in a recent, excellent video for those who signed up to download Trainer Track Stats. This will also be a huge part of my betting armoury this forthcoming jumps season so be sure to grab your free copy.
For those who haven’t had the good fortune to watch that particular video, I’ve recorded a very quick one of my own with a few races at Kempton in mind tonight. The first is at 8:45 where there is a very strong PACE/DRAW value each-way bet to be had, with GLAMOROUS DREAM at a best priced 20/1.
You can watch my brief video here explaining why I fancy Glamorous Dream to outrun her very big odds and witness the power of the PACE and DRAW info on GeeGeez racecards.
There is also a strong qualifying front-runner in the 9:15 DREAM CATCHING who has an advantageous draw in stall 12, so is well worth an each-way bet at 12/1. High drawn front runners have a 50% strike-rate, 4.25 A/E and a level stakes profit of +31pts.
SHEPHERDS PURSE may contest that lead though and at 14/1 is also worthy of a cover bet for the precise same reasons, despite not having as favourable a draw. Again, overall 6f front runners have a massive 28% strike rate, 3.11 impact value and +61pts profit so he could give Dream Catching most to do if overcoming that slightly negative mid-berth over this trip.
Before I get stuck into the trends selections for this weekends big handicaps, be sure to download the FREE TraIner Track Stats Jumps Season 2018/19 bible. My good friend Matt Bisogno has put together an awesome list of trainers to follow along with a very informative video on how these stats were compiled and some exciting news on how you can track them automatically and a very special offer. £18k+ profit over the last 5 years at Betfair SP is something to be really interested in and I’ll be following 5es this over the jumps season combined with trends picks.
Onto Saturday’s trends, and one of the final big flat handicaps on Saturday, the Cambridgeshire where there is a clear trends qualifier, but before that let’s have a look at the two big handicaps at Haydock. There are also some Group races and you can always follow the trends here and shortlist them using GeeGeez Gold racecards, which you can subscribe to for just £1 for the first month.
Another nice priced 25/1 winner last weekend, let’s see if we can keep this good run going. I’ve taken a look at the trends for all the key handicaps on Saturday. All trends and analysis performed using GeeGeez Gold, get a 30-day trial for just £1 here.
Newbury 1:45 STYLEHUNTER 6/1 & BERINGER 12/1
Ayr 2:00 MIKMAK 12/1
Ayr 2:40 DAKOTA GOLD 9/1 & PRIVATE MATTER 25/1
Ayr 3:50 SUMMERGHAND 33/1
The Ayr Gold Cup posed a slight conundrum, weeded it down to 4 horses, Ice Age, Kimberella, Summerghand and Golden Apollo but then we have a conundrum due to none of them hitting both of these 10/16 trends -:
10/16 – Aged 4 or 5 years-old
10/16 – Finished in the top 4 last time out
So in this instance, we look at the next lot of trends down, where only the 5-year old Summerghand hits -:
9/16 – Rated 90-100
9/16 – Came from a double-figure stall
9/16 – Had raced at Ayr before
it would not surprise me to see Golden Apollo run well if there is a low draw bias, especially as it’s the right age, has raced at Ayr and is in the right ratings band so could be worth a win cover.
No trends for today’s Bronze Cup but I do like Hanagan on a front-runner and they outperform in this race, so GABRIAL THE DEVIL at 10/1 can go well. Best of luck with your bets.
Before we get into the main event, I ran the trends for the Strensall but it was hard to split between Ghostwatch, Coolongolook and Candidate – all 3 are worthy of closer inspection. I'm liking the 16/1 about GHOSTWATCH for Godolphin with Buick perhaps able to take advantage of stall 1. Looks worth an e/w wager at those odds.
The Ebor is much more straightforward, only one strong selection with WHISKEY SOUR who represents a solid each-way bet at 9/1 for Mullins and Buick. Hits all the key trends where none of his other rivals do.
These were easy to find using GeeGeez Trends and their Gold Racecards – took less than 10 minutes. There have been a number of updates to GeeGeez since I've been away travelling, read all about the awesome new features here.
