Rory Delargy Tips

Rory Delargy

Rory Delargy, who I first heard on Timeform Radio and Will Hill radio, has launched his own tipping service.

A lot has happened since this post was first published in 2014, but one thing that stays consistent is that Rory Delargy is still tipping big priced left field winners.

Rory still represents The Irish Field in the Racing Post Naps competition and as I type he is sitting pretty in the number 1 spot 66 points clear of his nearest rival. (By the way if you would like these selections emailed to you each day you can sign up for free here –

If you would like to know more about Rory Delargy you can find an interview he did with On Course Profits magazine here – Rory Delargy Interview

And below I have included an example of the messages that Rory delivers to members of his Racing Consultants tipping service.

I have shared some of their analysis and tips on this site before, and as well as giving selections and suggested stakes they also share their assessment of the race and the reason that the selections have been made.

Here's an example of one they got right last week…

1:50 – Juddmonte Royal Lodge Stakes (Group 2) 1m

Key aspect of racing at Newmarket on Friday was the tailwind which saw remarkbly quick times for supposedly easy ground, and gusts in excess of 50mph were reported at the back of the runners. That should help the front runners again on Saturday, with the forecast looking much the same, although these things do change and the weather will be key.

I don’t suppose this will be regarded as a vintage renewal if New Mandate – a nursery winner off 84 two starts back, and the most exposed runner in the field – is good enough to win, but the field look much of a muchness on paper, and the gelded son of New Bay did well to win the Flying Scotsman Stakes at Doncaster last time given he had to make his run on the inside which looked the place to avoid all week. He’s worth marking up for that, proved very determined to squeeze through a gap late on, and will be suited by at least a mile given his stout pedigree. He’s clearly not a Classic prospect for next season, but he may have an edge in maturity for now, and should give a good account of himself.

2:25 – Juddmonte Cheveley Park Stakes (Group 1) 6f

This looks much more straightforward on paper, and I’m very surprised that Lowther winner Miss Amulet was only second best in the betting when I looked yesterday. She is the clear form pick, continues to improve, and showed reserves of class to hold off the challenge of Sacred at York. That form was boosted by Umm Kulthum’s win in the Firth of Clyde last week, and although Sacred was beaten in the Flying Childers, she again hit a very short price in the run, and I don’t see that as evidence that the Lowther is overrated – quite the opposite in fact.

Dandalla is a smashing filly and it’s great to see her syndicate finding success for ordinary owners at Group level this season, but she comes from a yard operating at a 2% strike rate in the last three weeks, and that must be a concern.

3:00 – Juddmonte Middle Park Stakes (Group 1)

Back to the colts, and the picture again looks cloudy. I feel that the juvenile form among the colts has struggled to find a pattern this season, and that has been exacerbated by trainers being forced to rush their charges into early targets with Royal Ascot in particular coming too early in the covid-interrupted campaign. Aidan O’Brien has talked openly about how many of his juveniles suffered from a Royal Ascot hangover this term, and the effects of that will take time to unravel. As such, the youngsters who have thrived most are those who were allowed to peak more naturally, and it’s no surprise that the major players in the Middle Park were not asked to tackle Pattern company until July or later.

Supremacy is my pick here, and I’m gambling that the wind will be in favour of front runners, and that it will ensure that the ground remains no worse than good. That’s taking quite a lot for granted, but Friday’s racing emboldens me that conditions will suir. I was hugely impressed with him at Windsor where he was still green, and he absolutely blinded his rivals for speed in the Richmond Stakes at Goodwood. That form has hardly been advertised, but the winner was gearing down at the finish and still produced a smart time performance, which counts for plenty. Minzaal could be on the back foot if he starts slowly again as he has on all three starts, while Lucky Vega is respected on form, but is a horse who will surely stay further, and he could be vulnerable in a test of speed (that would be turned on its head if the wind is against the runners, of course).

3:35 – bet365 Cambridgeshire Handicap (Heritage Handicap) 1m1f

There are a million possible angles into the Cambridgeshire depending on how you view the profiles of the big fancies, the historical form, big race trends, the going the draw and the effect of the wind. Most of those will prove fruitless, of course, and my approach is more simplistic as a form-based punter. I certainly can’t expect to make money guessing which of the ten runners who have been backed into 14/1 or shorter in places has been laid out for this, but there are a number of exposed handicappers who have a similar chance on the book to the talking horses in the race, and while I accept that the winner of this race is likely to have been set aside specifically for the contest, there are a lot of places on offer, and I’ll be happy to find an overpriced runner who can nick one of those places at 33/1 or bigger. History shows that such horses also win the race from time to time!

Top of my list of overpriced runners is Majestic Dawn who ran a cracker in this last season on firm ground, and went on to win on heavy on his next start before again repaying each-way support over ten furlongs here on his final 2019 start. He’d not been seen this year until running down the field at Kempton ten days ago, but that run would have been needed, and if he’s back to full fitness, he looks like taking a big hand from what should be a positive high draw in 25. We’re gambling on him being ready for this, and some will point to blinkers as a negative, but I disagree, even though I’m wary of headgear as a rule. Paul Cole – who now trains in partnership with son Oliver – is a fine proponent of headgear, and his younger horses have always been worth following when first tried in blinkers. I therefore take the fitting of headgear as a positive, and while there is an element of death or glory in backing a blinkered front runner on the back of a short preparation, I’m very tempted by the 40/1 on offer given he was only 8/1 for a stronger race last season. Update: well backed this morning, but quotes from trainer are very positive, and 28/1 is just about acceptable, especially with BOG, as I can see him drifting again.

Of the others, a case can be made for plenty, but if I’m putting up Majestic Dawn based partly on his run in the race last year, then Good Birthday has obvious claims having finished third last year, and he’s much better off at the weights after a poor 2020. He has shown better signs on his last couple of starts, and while he tends to get going too late, he’s the ideal type to back with extra places as a result.



So if you would like to try out a service from some real pro analysts at a bargain price then head over to, I think it will be an education as well as profitable.
