TopicDifferences in Handicapping Horse Races For Older or Younger Horses
The going, as with any race or racecourse plays Target Tipsters a part in the outcome of a race. On soft ground, on the straight track,
high numbers are advantaged as the camber sees the water drain to the far side running rail, leaving the stands side rail
the place to be. On the round course, too, you will see jockeys making their way to the stands side rail as they descend

often following a horse that has won over the course or course and distance can reap rich rewards. Also, too, a jockey
can excel at Epsom or be made to look somewhat of a fool. The greatest exponent of riding Epsom is the now retired Lester
Ascot racecourse hosts some of the best horse racing in the UK. And of course, the home of Royal Ascot festival.
Whatever the meeting, however, the same rules apply when it comes to form reading and deciding if your fancy will be

come with one sustained run and pass those tiring front runners. This advantage to the hold up horse is more noticeable
in bigger fields of 14 runners or more.
