    Share your form knowledge/patterns: I have been watching racing for some time and have identified various patterns that can help identify a value bet.

    - Christy Roche does not tend to win maiden hurdles or beginner chases, but horses are to be respected when backed from fancy odds (Groody hill backed from 14’s into 7/2 in a beginners chase, duly obliged and went on to win the troytown and to be beaten just over a length in the paddy power.

    -If Ruby thinks he’s lost his chance of winning or being placed he will give the horse and easy/tender ride, Mccoy will keep going until he obtains best possible finishing position.

    -Maybe you have identified a horse who will benefit from a step up in trip or different ground.

    - Maybe you have identified a horse that is being handicapped/not trying/ run over inadequate trip (Mark Prescott stunt)

    Horses that travel really well but find nothing (Harchibald)
    Horses that love certain courses
    Horses that love certain ground
    Horses that love certain trips
    Horses that front run (Sanctuaire)
    Jockeys that tend to win more at one track more than another
    Trainers who tend to win more at one track more than another (Noel Meade at Navan-local track)
    Trainers/Horses that peak at certain times of year
    Horses who run well after a break
    Horses who run well 2nd run back after a break
    Trainer with a significant jockey booking.
