Is JP McManus providing free racing tips?

By profitablebetting, Jun 16 2018 06:20AM

JP McManus is one of the biggest and most famous race horse owners in the country. His distinctive green-and-gold-hooped racing colours are known to most punters and will forever be associated with the exploits of the legendary Istabraq, a three-time winner of the Champion Hurdle. He has amassed himself a huge fortune as bookmaker and punter, and is one of the biggest owners in National Hunt racing.

I’m sure to his closest friends JP McManus gives plenty of sound betting advice but, despite being a generous fellow (he donates large sums to a number of charities) I’m not aware of him giving away any free tips, and I don’t think he needs to add to his fortune by setting up a telephone tipping line. However, while watching a race the other day, which included a couple of McManus owned runners, I wondered whether he was inadvertently giving a tip by running one horse in his first colours and the other horse in his second colours. After watching the horse in the McManus first colours win easily I started to think that maybe owners with multiple runners in a race are giving punters inside information by running one runner in their first colours and the lesser fancied runners in their second a third colours. Could owners choice of silks be some sort of semaphore system for picking winners?

Our unique Pace Ratings allow you to understand how a race is likely to be run, and which horses are likely to take an early lead. These ratings will be of considerable value to those interested in 'betting-in-running' or 'in-play' markets as horses that take an early lead are likely to contract in odds during the early part of a race. Draw analyst will also wish to note well drawn horses that have a record of breaking well and establishing an early lead.


The ratings are only available from this site and can be viewed daily.

Our Valuator service aims to provide a daily set of odds for every handicap hurdle and chase run in Great Britain and Ireland. The odds are our assessment of the 'true' odds of the horse winning or losing.


The oddsline is generated from a statistical analysis, using Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques, from horses past performance data. It also takes into account situational factors such as track, course going, and race distance.





Our Jump-2-Profit service aims to provide value based winners for our members. It takes into account scores of form factors and uses sophisticated statistical techniques to combine them into a probability score. The probability score selects the horse in a race that has the greatest chance of winning but also provides an estimate of the odds that would represent the true odds for the horse winning the race. Therefore if you bet the horse at odds greater than the true odds of the horse winning then you will have made a value bet. A punter who bets in this way should, in the long run, do better than one that ignores the concept of value. It is making value bets that is the key to profitable betting.
