Cambridgeshire Statistics

The Cambridgeshire runs on Saturday at Newmarket.

This is not a race Guy here looks at every year.A 30 odd runner handicap whilst being fine for a dart thrower is a long and scary bit of work for someone who prefers to look at each horse in detail.

Guy's last look at the race was back in 2014 when his stats research led him to a shortlist of two. Bronze Angel won at 14/1 SP ( 20/1 early ) and Velox was third at 8/1 SP. See Cambridgeshire 2014

I am putting this page up on Wednesday and whilst Guy has yet to complete more detailed work on actual shortlisting he did put out early stats on the race as an aid to any clients with an interest in the race.

So if you are a bit of a DIY'er with your racing I hope you find them of use. They are the same sort of thing Guy used in 2014 to find the winner with.

If on the other hand you are the sort who prefers an expert's final conclusion on the day of the race, then I would point you to our £3 Saturday Service

Long Term Member Testimonial

"I have been with Mathematician Betting for about ten years now - virtually from the day the service started. I can't remember an unprofitable year. But from a personal perspective profit has not been the most valuable part of the journey, rather, the detailed and intelligent information I have received virtually every day for the last decade. Why has this information been so valuable?

Quite simply, it has allowed me - through what I have learned from the service - to 'go it alone' and earn a living from my betting independently of anyone else - this has always been my ultimate goal but I could not have done it without Mathematician Betting."
