Hello and a warm welcome to

RaceReader is dedicated to horseracing . I will comment on topical racing issues and hope to provide useful information and analysis to make your betting more profitable and enjoyable.

My name is Steve and I more or less eat, sleep and breathe horse racing.  I compile my own handicap ratings, which have helped me to turn a profit betting on flat handicap races on the turf and all weather over the last few years.

I’ll be honest and admit that I’m probably a bit of an anorak as I get totally engrossed in speed figures, handicap ratings and strike rates. The numbers have helped me to make money but may have distracted me from the reasons why I liked horse racing when I was too young to bet, well, bet legally at any rate.

I half realised I was missing something when Sea The Stars eased through the gap in the Arc and the realisation was complete when the cardiac patient Denman recuperated to win the Hennessy.  Denman’s performance was so special that I found myself watching him in preference to a race I’d had a bet in on the all weather.

It took me back to the likes of Nijinsky, Mill Reef, Red Rum and Desert Orchid. I suppose what I’m saying is that I’ve got a bit bogged down in figures and see this blog as a way of kicking off some of the mud.

I’m not sure exactly what form my ramblings will take but I’m sure there will be some moans, rants and tirades but I will try to pick out some positive things as well.

I’d like to share some of the methods I use and hope that you will also share your opinions and ideas on finding winners.

If you have a favourite racing related topic or have ideas for interesting features please let me know. I will do my best to include your input.
