About Declan Meagher

My name is Declan Meagher and I’ve been a Professional Gambler for over 10 years now. In that time most of my betting has been on Betfair and Betdaq.

I’ve always had allot to say so this site gives me the opportunity to write on topics I’m interested in, and with my Betting School I intend to teach people the tools they need to become winning punters themselves. There are no quick fixes, winning at gambling like most jobs takes hard work, loads of research, and form study. There are however plenty of ways to approach the task that give you every chance of being successful, and without giving all of my own angles, I’ll show you how to go about getting your own.

I preview most big races in my blog, and I also have a Nap of the Day page which is proving very profitable and should continue to do so. I’ve just launched my Premium Advisory Service which will be an email/text service giving subscribers an average of 15-20 of my very best bets each week. It has both a set membership or a set profit target option.

Another section I hope will be of interest is Hit Or Myth. In Hit or Myth I’ll dissect the many media clichés relating to horse racing. Does Polytrack form really transfer well to Ascot as many have stated, do soft ground horses do better than fast ground ones on Fibresand? These and many more will be looked at to see if they’re a Hit or a Myth.

My Blog will cover everything else I feel the need to share with the world.

I’m available to write article’s for your website/newspaper/magazine and also for any specialist research you might want done into any horse racing topic.

Visit the Contact page for email details.

A Sectional Timing Based Analysis of Flat Jockeys Pace Judgement

Judging a jockeys ability has long been an inexact science, with some widely different views on how effective certain pilots are. Some jockeys like Jamie Spencer  polarize opinion, while others like Ryan Moore and Frankie Dettori are generally accepted as two of the best around. What forms these opinions though [...]

The Owner Pays The Bills So Does A Trainer Have Any Obligation To The Betting Public?

You buy a racehorse, pay a trainer to train it, then have to pay for extra's like entry fees, jockey and transport fees when it races. There is also vet bills and farrier bills. Surely after coughing up all of that you're entitled to feel that without owners there [...]

Should some gambling products be banned, or are current regulations enough?

On Sunday last I was a guest on the BBC debate show The Big Questions, where one of the topics was 'Should gambling be made socially unacceptable'. It was an interesting and emotive debate, and while only one speaker seemed in favour of an outright gambling ban, it was notable [...]
