Route 66 – 2017/18


Finally, there is a Betting Service that is totally unique, is great fun, offers plenty of excitement and most importantly, is very profitable!





Route 66 is a ground breaking new service which helps find the big Cheltenham Festival winners using an exciting and completely different approach to the norm. Instead of using form, trends or information from the stable’s, postman’s brother we select our horses based on the races they have been contesting in the run up to the big meetings.

Going back over the last 12 Seasons we have comprehensively researched every single race at the Cheltenham Festival (and Royal Ascot for the Flat version) to see which races the winners had been contesting previous to running there. This research was a real eye-opener and gave us lists of races that were being used to prep horses for specific targets at the big Festivals.

This gives us an angle that no one else has been looking at and means we are able to obtain massive ante-post prices about our selections.



But it’s more than just a few ante-post bets posted every now and again.

The Route 66 Service starts with two feature races at Wetherby on the 2nd November and then covers the biggest and most important races every week until the Cheltenham Festival next March.

All subscribers will get exclusive and unlimited access to our password protected Members Area where all the Route 66 information is stored. For every one of the 66 races we cover in the service you will receive a Guide that looks at:

  • The past winners
  • Any trends associated with the race
  • Trainer records
  • A selection (tip)


  • A thorough breakdown of the results from the last 12 years to see which runners have gone on to Cheltenham that Season, which race they have targeted and how they have fared.


It is this unique race analysis that sets us apart from other services and helps us select the horses we feel are most likely to head to the Cheltenham Festival.

Once we have our fancy we then search out the best odds from all the major bookmakers before advising our Members of the Ante-Post bets for the relevant race. These Ante-Post bets are clearly marked and explanations given as to our reasoning. We let you know which bookmaker is offering the best odds and any concessions they are offering.

Using these bets we will build up an Ante-Post portfolio over the course of the months leading up to the big meetings.

It’s not simply a case of backing whatever happens to win each race though, it’s using our expert judgement to pinpoint which horse from the race is the one worth backing.



Which all means we arrive at the Cheltenham Festival in March with an Ante-Post Portfolio packed with big priced horses ready to run the race of their lives.

This is the meeting we have been working towards all Season and the excitement of holding big prices about short priced favourites is what Route 66 is all about.

In racing, nothing can beat the sheer excitement of cheering home a 5/2 favourite bounding clear up the Cheltenham Hill knowing you’ve backed it at 16/1 some 4 months previously.

That’s the excitement our Members felt last March after we had tipped Defi Du Seuil for the Triumph Hurdle………

EXAMPLE 1: This was a race review and Ante-Post selection taken from the latest Route 66 service for the 2017 Cheltenham Festival. The race in question took place over 4 months before the Cheltenham Festival;


RESULT: Defi Du Seuil won the Triumph Hurdle by an easy 5 lengths as the 5/2 favourite!


Or what about the thrill of backing a 50/1 supposed no-hoper who leads over the last hurdle looking all set to win the Stayers Hurdle?

 EXAMPLE 2: Another example of one of our race reviews and Ante-Post selection taken from the latest Route 66 service for the 2017 Cheltenham Festival. The race in question took place nearly 5 months before the Cheltenham Festival;


RESULT: Native River won the Hennessy on his next start, Silsol didn’t make it to Cheltenham and Lil Rockerfeller was 2nd in the Stayers Hurdle.

 Just 2 of the many winners and places we had at last Season’s Cheltenham Festival.



We began the service with the 2015-2016 NH Season and the Cheltenham Festival then covered the 2016 Flat Season for Royal Ascot before revisiting both meetings in 2017. These are our results….

2015-2016 NH Season

That first Season for Cheltenham we had winners at 8/1, 14/1, 14/1 & 16/1 with places at 20/1, 20/1 & 25/1.

Not bad at all but even better when you see those 4 winners returned at Evens, 5/1, 8/1 and 8/1!

2016 Flat Season

Over to the flat for last year, and the Royal Ascot Service, we highlighted bets for 20 of the races run at the Festival and found the winner of the Group 1 Prince of Wales Stakes at 33/1 and the Group 2 King Edward VII Stakes at 20/1

They returned 16/1 and 7/1 respectively and ensured another highly profitable meeting for subscribers.

2016-2017 NH Season

and in the sister service we run for the Cheltenham Festival we made it 3 successful meetings out of 3 when bagging a whole host of winners and places throughout this year’s 4 day meeting.

Winners like Defi Du Seuill, advised at 16/1 - won at 5/2, Might Bite, advised at 12/1 - won at 7/2 and Un De Sceaux, advised at 7/2 - won at 7/4

along with places at 50/1, 20/1, 20/1, 16/1, 12/1, 12/1, 10/1 and 8/1

An absolutely stunning meeting for every subscriber with all ante-post bets clearly marked and odds advised easily obtainable throughout the Season.

2017 Flat Season

Which just leaves this year’s Royal Ascot meeting. Over the 5 days we had many fancied horses run for us and once again plenty of big priced winners….

Winners like Snoano in the Wolferton Handicap at 25/1, Big Orange in the Gold Cup at 16/1, Permian at 14/1, The Tin Man at 12/1 and Ribchester at 15/8

And more than our fair share of hard luck stories and near misses as Mori (advised at 10/1) was caught on the line, Ulysses (advised at 10/1) led inside the final furlong before fading out of it, similar to the well backed Dartmouth (advised at 10/1) who was just run out of the frame, as were Frozen Angel (25/1 4th) and Brother Bear (4th).

A quite staggering set of results that ensured all Members, once again, ended the week well in profit!

Obviously we can’t guarantee that we will have the same level of success we have enjoyed at previous festivals or that we will find a 33/1 winner for every meeting BUT what we can promise you, is that we will keep our research bang up to date, we will always be reviewing the chosen races and we will analyse every race as thoroughly as we have always done to try and find those big priced winners. The ones we all want to back!

But don’t just take my word for it, let’s look at what some of our happy subscribers (Route 66 and Highway 50) thought of it….

Hi Gavin
First of all congratulations on some fantastic research you came up with. Your advice and recommendations were second to none and I personally can only thank you for all the hard work you have put in. Lil Rockerfella was a very good winning bet for me as I bet it to be in first 6, first 5 eway and a win bet at 70-1 on the exchanges which was laid off in running for a healthy profit. This along with other stuff you put forward enabled me to have a good Cheltenham.

I have been following your blogs since you came over and did your racecourse tours last year and soon realised you are a very smart guy who is so interesting to read. Keep it up Gavin you are a credit to this site. I will of course be subscribing to all your upcoming services. I personally cant thank you enough. Very kind regards and all the very best – R

Hi Gavin, 
Just wanted to send you a note to thank you for the Highway 50 service. 
I was really intrigued by the concept and I have to say the results spoke for themselves – of course plenty missed and a few hit the crossbar (Mori in particular was galling) but the results from Thursday onwards more than proved it’s a sound concept. Big Orange, Permian and The Tin Man were superb, but what almost felt like the casual nod to Snoano was inspired. 
I wish I had the time to dedicate to something like this, but thank you to you for doing the hard work. I’m sure it was generally, but your efforts were greatly appreciated here. 
Look forward to the Cheltenham one later in the year, will definitely sign up for that and to be fair, you have a subscriber for as long as you continue to do it. Kind regards SK

Hi Gavin,
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I followed every one of your ante-post recommendations and had the most fun and my most profitable ever Cheltenham. If Lil Rockerfeller had won I think would have had a heart attack! What a tip- PT

Good evening Gavin
Just a quick note to say thank you for all your efforts in producing the ante-post service for Royal Ascot and for all the efforts this week. I did miss the 3 handicap selections which were added this week as I wasn’t aware these had been added, so did miss the ante-post advice on 33-1 winner Snoano. However, despite that it was still a fantastic week where I made over £800 profit following your advice! I’m not a massive punter so that’s great work by you. So close with the Lucky 15 and placepot bets to a really big payout too. Well done! Regards AS

I don’t know how you keeping on doing it but the results this Cheltenham were simply outstanding. I’ve subscribed to all of your Route 66 services and can’t thank you enough, there’s nothing quite like backing big winners ante-post. I can’t wait to start again for Ascot – MJ

Congratulations, well done and thankyou, great ascot tipping!!
A few really exciting moments and great wins!! – GM

Hi Gavin,
Route 66 was fantastic for me, I also topped up with the trends pack and had my best Cheltenham ever helped by a bit of judicious extra place bets on Lil Rockefeller. What a horse.
Thanks for all the hard work, well worth it. – HF

Hi Gavin, 
Incredible research and fantastic results (again!). One of the best racing services I’ve ever joined. – DK

Hi Gavin,
