    Hello everyone, pleased to finally be able to post something - I must have been one of the 140. I'm a senior citizen now but I still look in the mirror & see a full head of brown hair (but in reality what's looking back at me is old grey & wrinkled).

    I love my horse racing and I like to try to solve class 4 handicaps. I slightly prefer jumps but will go to flat meets too, usually northern meetings. I'm a guesser but that doesn't stop me having a bet most days. I enjoy sites like this and will give encouragement and praise, hopefully in equal measure but will keep my mouth shut on anything else.

    I'm an ex-engineer who retired at 45. My main betting medium is football as I know pretty much zero about horse racing but would like to learn, it's not as if I don't have the time. Any guidance appreciated. Saw this site mentioned on a very interesting thread on Betfair. I don't usually do forums so please excuse if my etiquette is not up to scratch.

    Welcome, BurtSaddo.

    Try this thread posted a couple of weeks back by Diamond Geezer, and follow the link to Timeform. Pretty good advice contained here, for someone just starting out, and probably more use than any book you will read.

    One thing to bear in mind, BurtSaddo.

    Betting on the Flat is generally for flaming-ninnies and/or metrosexuals.

    You will want to stick to the Jumps, to ensure maximum credibility and 'Stud' value.

    I have managed to purchase a copy of Braddock's guide to horse racing, I have heard some complementary things about it.

    Thanks Marble

    In the 5:00 I like Belgravia, and two in the 5:35 Mainstream and Oasis Fantasy.

    Good luck

    I have been lurking, having a look round this site for a few days, so thought it time to register and introduce myself. Following a reorganisation by my employer, I took early retirement almost 2 years ago, which has allowed me to indulge my hobbies of golf and horse racing. I am off to Kelso in the morning :-)

    Really glad I found this forum and looking forward to reading and occasionally contributing to the various threads.
    Derek

    Hi Derek. Welcome to Talkinghorses. What a great time to get involved given The Festival is round the corner, and quickly followed by Aintree and Punchestown. Don't be afraid to get stuck in and contribute.
