I like to follow horses. Actually, this is an understatement, because I produce algorythmic horse ratings on a couple of powerful software programs. Back in 2006, when I was at Newcastle University, I won a business award for one of the derivative products I was selling online based on this data, a business I called, back then, Systemlays UK.
Since 2006, I’ve been honing the program, as an amateur handicapper, to keep my tools sharp.
When it comes to Cheltenham Festival, here in my personal website, for a bit of fun, I post up what my speed and going based ratings software calculates has a good chance under the conditions… if they win or they lose, no complaints or praise is necessary.
Just enjoy the sport, and if you do find a winner (with or without me) then high five whoever is next to you… failing that, leave a comment on one of the posts below :)
