Heaving oceans of stats....a near obsession...never fails to engage...barely a syllable of slack... contains every stat ever compiled about the festival... dry wit, some funny....packed with more nuggets than a KFC warehouse in a chicken glut...'a great stats site with no stone, pebble or speck unturned... A must check out as always'. Robin Gibson (Racing Post March '19)
'I can't recommend this enough. The info is excellent but the intent is even better, and I hope Marie Curie benefit hugely from this labour of love. And I say that having been banned from the quiz. (which is obviously the best bit). Rory Delargy (WHill Radio, Matchbook and Final Furlong Podcasts, Irish Field Columnist. Not much he isn't good at. 18th February 2019)
Your tip on outsiders in big fields and betting on the exchange close to the off. A great piece of insight that has made me a lot of extra money Robith, Fat Jockey Forum. I like Fat Jockey. 19th Feb 2019.
'You are spot on re Willie Mullins.' 'Bryan has put in a shift, and then some' Tony Keenan, @RacingTrends, Final Furlong Podcast Legend. (pictured beside an old clerk - 3rd November '18 - Down Royal's big day. Without prompting, hands me first donation for whatever charity I'm supporting in 2019. A gentleman).
'Lots of interesting stuff on Gaultstats... certainly things I didn't know.' Matt Tombs (the man who is the Festival Betting Guide from 2016). Now that's what I call praise.
'Superb stuff' Kevin Morley (my Nemesis) Racing Post Trends .
22 January 2019 - Matt Tombs kindly offers Gstats a free page of advertising for Marie Curie in his Racing TV Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide (out mid February). Cutting my own throat maybe but Matt's past work has always been essential reading for anyone who works at their Festival Punting. Last year his well written production named and gave solid arguments for Kilbricken Storm 33s and Le Prezien 15/2, weeks before the event. Not easy to do. The profit/loss and percentage tables confirm the depth of his research and will make you think seriously about different punting approaches.
Has also been kind enough to say that' 'there is room for us all' (Gstats).
'If you are looking for comprehensive trends at the Cheltenham Festival, Gaultstats appears to have all angles covered with an in depth guide to each race and the general meeting trends.' Paul Jones (www.pauljoneshorseracing.com and author of The Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide 2000-2015) 24th Feb 2017. No one knows more. He is the God, in front of whom we kneel, that's why he says 'appears to'. Keeps me aiming to improve.
You will not find ads on Gstats as its my thing but Paul Jones's From Soba To Moldova is one of the few books on betting that I have read twice. (I think the last were the chapters in Dave Nevison's first book discussing the making of your own tissue). For a punter like me, Soba is a great book. Paul makes you think about how you bet. As a Cheltenham stats ejjitt I enjoy reading how he started this industry. His success over the years has been to find angles that the rest of us have yet to give notice to. Each bit is interesting. My friend Jack is just as mad about punting on the Eurovision Song Contest even though I believe Israel in 2018 wasn't a great result. Paul may emphasise on a few occasions how he tipped a 50/1 National winner and a 40/1 Derby winner but IMO there is no better recent book on betting.
'Well done with the admirable project.' Simon Rowlands - Attheraces Sectional Spotlight. Feb '19
