Steve's Saturday Stunner

Saturday 31 January


Quite a day again with loads of action, the undoubted star of the show was SLH who put up win bets on Amore Mio and Thetwincamdrift and also the each way double on the pair of them.

Other winners on the day were Divertimenti for Maths, and Kornati Kid which was Tipping Legends strongest bet of the day.

Nothing doing from my three football bets, one goal away from a profit - which is often the case, and unlikely to pick up anything on the golf this weekend unless Sergio Garcia burns up the course in Dubai tomorrow.

Cracking Day Again

Friday 30 January


Great that The Form Analyst found a couple of winners today to snap the losing run he's been on. Graeme puts everything he has into his work and it's good to see he has been rewarded today. Add to that another winner from Tipping Legends and it's been a very good day again.

Great Start, could have been a great day

Thursday 29 January


Made a fantastic start to the day with a 20/1 winner, however couldn't build on it and it turned out to be a frustrating day with Glenfinn Captain looking to come and win the race, hitting the last and Barry Geraghty losing his irons and that was that. Then 5 minutes later Tender Falcon finished third, beaten two noses - would have won in another stride or two - all very irritating !

Free Day

Wednesday 28 January


Paid for today's bets with a win on the football last night - which was just as well as there were was nothing doing on the horses, the weather having intervened once again with the meetings at Exeter and Leicester being abandoned due to waterlogging.

Heading towards the weekend again, the racing should be decent if the weather holds up, and if all else fails there's always the golf !!

Great Day So Far

Tuesday 27 January


Five selections from the tipsters produced three winners and two seconds which was a welcome upturn in fortunes from what has gone before this month.

Also put together a bet from the other info on the day, SLH only hightlighted one race with his pick being Once Cool Knight each way against the odds-on favourite. He didn't put it on the account due to the difficulty of getting an each way bet on with the bookies. Maths didn't put up any selections but analysed a few races in his e-mail, his best idea of a bet was Rawdon and Punching in an each way double. Final leg of my bet was Apocalozzo, given out as an account bet by Optimum who have a close link to the Tim Vaughan stable. Put it all together, and despite only one winner, made a profit of over £700 on the bet !! Have to be watchful and look for more of these, seemed to be minimal downside with a good chance of a decent pay-off and a remote shot at the jackpot so very worthwhile.

Going to pick out a couple of football bets, will be laying out £200 and hopefully round off a great day. Will add the results to tomorrow's figures.

Poor start to the week

Monday 26 January


After a great weekend, came crashing back to earth with a bump today with 6 losers - two more seconds, including Mullitovermaurice beaten a short head to maintain the running theme of the month.

Couple of losing golf bets to book as well - Brian Gay was never in contention in the Bob Hope Classic despite finishing 24 under par !!!

Had pretty much given up hope of Loren Roberts doing anything in the Champions Tour event in Hawaii, with him being 7 shots off the lead going into the final round last night. However had a quick look at the scores and saw he was 4 under for his first four holes. Stayed up for a while to see if he could make any further progress but dozed off before the live Setanta coverage kicked in. Checked this morning and he had parred the rest of the holes and got no closer to the money, missing the each way places by two shots.

Tipping Legends - Birdie Golf Service

An amazing start to the year for the Tipping Legends golf service with an 80/1 winner, a 28/1 winner and a 12/1 each way placed. You can see the profit figures for this year in my latest blog posting.

A few weeks ago the guys who run the service got in touch to offer some discounted 6 month subscriptions for me to sell to readers of this blog.

There are still some places available at £225 (the normal price is £245), so if anyone is interested please leave a comment with your e-mail address (which won't be published) and we can take things from there.

Weekly Profit and Loss - w/e 25/01/09

Stunning week on the golf with an 80/1 winner today, following on a 28/1 winner last week - and a big turn round in fortunes in the last week.

The racing continues to be a struggle with winners in short supply and a ridiculous amount of places, although signs of better things in the last few days. Just need the change and things will be looking much better.

Bare facts for the month to date on the horses show just 20 winners from 161 bets, strike rate of 12.4%. Not a vintage performance by any means, however I have also backed 30 seconds, and 19 thirds this month so not a million miles away.

Wow, what a day !!

Sunday 25 January


Alvaro Quiros won the Qatar Masters by three shots, but that doesn't begin to tell the story.

Started the day with a one shot lead, but a poor front nine where he missed two very short putts left him in a tie for the lead, and he looked pretty wobbly at that stage. However he got his game together, rolled in some good putts and by the 15th was two shots in front. Looking good you might think, then he hit his second shot into the water !!!! What a kick in the nuts. But, he had a 15 footer for a bogey and needed it to hold on to a share of the lead with Stenson - and he holed it, brilliant putt. That was the final twist. He birdied 16 and 17 and that was about it - easy peasy lol !!!

Absolutely huge win for me and, following on from Zach Johnson last week, has turned the month right round. Superb tipping from the Legends !!


Racing not so good, just three selections today - all from the Tipping Legends and two seconds in Ireland, both trading at short prices in running.

Off out for a meal now, so back later with the weekly scores on the doors.

Start of a weekend to remember ?

Saturday 24 January


At long last the horses clicked into gear today, with the exception of The Form Analyst who continues to have a torrid time of things. At least he managed to get the quota of third places for the month up to an acceptable level !!

Three winners from the Tipping Legends was the cornerstone to a good winning day, but Maths weighed in a good profit on an unusual bet for him, and had Tidal Bay gone in I would have hit the jackpot.

Tipping Legends golf tips have made a great start to the year, looks like being a nail-biting morning tomorrow as Alvaro Quiros leads the Qatar Masters by 1 shot going into the last round. I've had £25 each way at 80/1 - Skysports Two tomorrow morning at 9.30 if you want to share the agony !!!

Friday 23 January


Haven't had too many fallers to contribute to this months disaster on the horses, but that was the story of today. Both Optimum and SLH put up All For The Cause in the Doncaster 3.40, and so well was he travelling he was matched at even money on Betfair with 5 fences to jump. However, that was the point where he crashed out taking my hopes of a good day with him.

Elsewhere one winner from Tipping Legends and the obligatory second in the last of the day, and it's another losing day.

First winning horse of the week today which was welcome, but frustration again with Chopneyev finishing 2nd at 22/1, meaning I've now backed 15 runners-up in the last week and 26 so far this month !!!

A new service to check out

Recently I was contacted regarding a service and website at

www.mob-horseracing-tips.com

I’ve had a look at the site, which is a mix of tips and systems bets – the service was launched in November last year and the results look pretty good.

They requested some exposure on my blog, and I’ve got no problem with doing that.

I’m not going to subscribe to the service because I’ve already got more than enough action from my existing services, but I will post a link to the site on the right, and will post their weekly results on here for the next few weeks so you can monitor their progress.

I have been receiving sample e-mails for the last few days, so I can verify the latest results quoted on their website are correct. Other than that I can’t comment any further on their services.

If you are interested then please mention my blog when you make contact.

I’m not getting anything from them for this – just been asked to give their service a bit of exposure to potential customers and I’m happy to do that on here.

More Losses

Tuesday 20 January


Not having a good time of it on the horses at the moment, the tone for the day was set in the first race when The Panama Kid came down at the first. Only SLH performing well at the moment and he was the source of today's winner. Another two second places today - winners have been in short supply but I've backed 12 seconds since last Thursday, very frustrating. It will turn around, but not much sign of it at the moment. See what happens tomorrow.

Late night vigil pays off

Monday 19 January


Won't be long before I'm in bed tonight, as I had a very late night watching the golf last night. Intended to just watch the first few holes of Zach Johnson's final round in the Sony Open before I went to bed. He got off to a good start and opened up a three shot lead early on. However within half and hour he had been pegged back and was in a three-way go for the lead, and that was that. No way was I switching off at that point and so I settled in for a long night. He held it together very well, was never headed and eventually birdied the last to win by two shots - the winning putt going in just after 3am ! Managed about 3.5 hours kip last night, and beginning to feel the pace now but it was well worth staying up for.

Three horses advised today, and didn't take long to pick up the losing thread again. Things not really happening for many of my tipsters at the moment, and will just be glad to get out of this quiet spell relatively unscathed until things change for the better as they surely will before much longer.

Stopped The Rot

Sunday 18 January


After the nightmare of the last couple of days, just two selections today and a good winner from SLH's all weather team.

Unbelievably, after a pretty desperate month so far, I've got a chance to get just in front overnight. I'm on Zach Johnson in the Sony Open in Hawaii - had £50 each way at 28/1, and he leads by one shot going into the final round.

Doesn't tee off until 11.10 our time, so while I will watch the start of his round - I don't think I'll make it to the end. However, see how he starts and take it from there. Can always have an early night tomorrow !!

Brutal Day

Saturday 17 January


Don't think there have been many more frustrating days than today since I started with this blog more than a year ago.

Very busy as you would expect on a Saturday with 19 selections, and the fact that only one of them won means it's another losing day. That barely tells the story though as I backed no fewer than six seconds and three other got placed - the defeat of Titan Triumph in the last race of the day, beaten a nose, just failing to get there (matched at 1.01 on Betfair) summed the day up perfectly.

Football bets crashed and burned as well, and Man Utd scored a 90th minute winner - could a day possibly get any worse ?!

Dismal Day Again

Friday 16 January


Another very disappointing day with no winners from ten bets, although three of them did finish second - first time I've watched the racing all week and look what happens !!

Some good racing on offer tomorrow, and should be a busy day - hopefully a profitable one.

New Blog

Posted a link to a new blog "Credit Crunch Betting" on the right.

He's recently lost his job due to the current economic crisis and is trying his hand at winning a few quid on the horses until he finds another job - unless he does well in which case he'll do it for a living !!

Best of luck to you anyway mate.

Will try and spare a few minutes over the weekend to update my blog links, there's still plenty kicking around out there, and a few new ones as well.

Rude Awakening !!

Thursday 15 January


Switched the telly on about 7.45 this morning, my alarm went off at seven - and I decided to stir myself 5 snoozes later !!

One of Tipping Legends selections for the Golf this week was Henrik Stenson, and the very first thing I saw this morning was Stenson walking towards the green looking totally pissed off with life, with the commentator saying something like "well we think he's there for 6, and so if he gets down in two that'll be a quadruple bogey 8". Bloody brilliant, felt like going straight back to bed - actually he took seven on the hole and he's well out of contention at 4 over, only about half a dozen players worse than him.

However it's not all bad news as the other selection in the tourny, is tied 8th - just 2 shots off the lead. Very long way to go of course, but on each way at 80/1 so with a bit of luck might have something worth watching this weekend.

On to the racing, where Tipping Legends found a couple of winners, and Venetia Williams was my nemesis with two of her horses beating my tips into second place.

Steady profit again, made a bit every day so far this week with a few winners and I'm not far off being level on the year again now.

Getting out

Wednesday 14 January


Dropped £100 on the football last night, should have left it alone - was a lazy bet over which I studied for a good five minutes and got what I deserved. Give it a better shot at the weekend.

Looked like being another tough day, until Fancy Footsteps got me out at Kempton - tipped up by both The Form Analyst and SLH. Couldn't get the 4/1 Graeme advised, but comfortably beat the 3/1 from SLH so no harm done.

Tipping Legends were keen on Planet Of Sound but only at 2/1 - the price wasn't reached, the horse winning at 6/4.

Better, much better !!

Tuesday 13 January


Finally a decent day to get things moving in the right direction again. Both Graeme and SLH gave Murrin at Great Leighs. Graeme's recommended price was 4/1 with Ladbrokes, who kindly let me have £25 on at that price !!, the rest going on at 7/2. SLH gave it out at 12.0 by which the advised minimum price was 11/4, although I managed to achieve 3/1.

Optimum came up with a good winner Royal Hilarity - advised at 5/1 and backed all the way in to an SP of 9/4.

Might have a dabble on the football tonight, not had a look yet but there's a few games on tonight so I'll see if I can find anything.

End of a poor week

Sunday 11 January


Another blank day on the horses with three more losers to add to the week, indeed not a single winner all week with action largely restricted to the all weather.

Things have warmed up somewhat, although Plumpton has gone tomorrow. All being well Fakenham will pass their inspection tomorrow and we should be ok for the rest of the week.

Frustrating watching Charl Schwartzel in the golf this afternoon, eventually finished tied for fourth to collect some of the each way money, three shots behind the winner. Look like missing out in the US golf as well as Camilo Villegas is tied fourth overnight, seven shots behind and I'm on win only. Stayed up late last night to watch it and he was making a charge, eight birdies in 9 holes at one stage, but missed a few late putts and think he's too far behind now. See how he's got on when I get up in the morning.

Last minute goal gets me out

Saturday 10 January


Another torrid day on the horses with no winners from eight selections, although unlucky with Theatre Belle, done by a short head at 14/1 and got a decent run for my money with several of the others.

Things were looking pretty bleak again, but a couple of late goals, including a 93rd minute goal from Northampton, got me three draws in my yankee and gave me a small profit on the day.

Charl Schwartzel (advised 12/1 e/w) is tied for the lead in the Joburg open with a round to go, but there are 30 players within 5 shots of the lead so not getting my hopes up too much.

...or the day before, or the day before that etc.



Friday 9 January


Kelso ultimately lost their battle with the elements and so yet again it was left to the All Weather to keep the bookies ticking over.

Nothing for me again with two more losers to add to the growing list. Now over £1300 quid down so far this year despite a 33/1 winner on New Year's Day. Looking back, January last year was similarly disappointing so it's nothing to get concerned about, although a decent winning weekend would be very welcome.

Need a Jump

Thursday 8 January


Well jumps really, well alright both !

More all weather action today, and the losing theme continues.

Just two bets advised and two more losers. Didn't see any of the racing today, and by the sounds of it nobody saw very much from Great Leighs.

Kelso needs to pass an inspection in the morning so fingers crossed for tomorrow.

More of the same

Tuesday 6 January


Familiar story again today with no jumps racing . Nothing doing tomorrow either and Thursday sounds equally hopeless.

Best chance of action seems to be Friday's card at Kelso, while Ayr have scheduled an extra meeting for Saturday so with a bit of luck that will go ahead. Kempton have abandoned Saturday's card and replaced it with (another) all weather meeting, and Wetherby's got no chance unless it warms up round here pretty sharpish.

Three bets today, but once again nothing doing as none of the selections troubled the judge.

Monday 5 January


Nothing much to report today, with even the all weather card at Wolverhampton failing to beat the freeze up.

Just three horses, with nothing doing - although if I were doing each way I'd be tearing my hair out as there were two more 4th places today !!

Overstaked one of the bets today which cost me a fiver. Should stake £65 on 9/1 chances, but put £70 on it without thinking.

I am also going to do a weekly profit and loss showing the advised stakes and prices of each selection, this is set out below with explanations where necessary.

I will show the weekly p&l in terms of points and also attach a value to it by using my previous staking plan. Trying not to make it unduly complicated - see below......


Mathematician

Account bets are either staked at £100 or £50 by maths.

His "selections" are not staked but they are bets he recommends which are not strong enough to be account bets.

I will show these seperately and apply my old staking plan which was account bets at £100-£200, and selections at £50.

Call it £50 per point.



Maths (Bad Horses)

No stakes advised on these, but will lay to lose £100.


The Form Analyst

Bets advised win or each way up to a maximum of 5 points. Staked £50 / point previously.

Optimum Racing

Bets advised win or each way up to a maximum of 10 points. Previous staking plan £25 per point.


SLH Private

Bets advised win or each way up to a maximum of 10 points. Previous staking plan £25 per point.


SLH Premium (Lay)

These are recommended lay bets on short priced favourites, and I will be laying these to lose £100 (same as on my old plan)


SLH A/W

No advised points on this service so will settle at level stakes (1pt win or 0.5 pts each way). Previously I used £100 win / £50 each way on my old plan.


Tipping Legends

Bets advised up to a maximum of 3pts win. My old stakes were £50 / point.

Sunday 4 January


One of those days which would drive you mad if you let it.

Four horses advised, three of them finish second - one beaten a nose (traded at 1.01) and another beaten a head (traded at 1.05).

Added to that I'm back to work tomorrow for the first time in nearly 3 weeks. Not looking forward to it one little bit, alarm set for 7 which is about 5 hours earlier than I've been getting up lately. No doubt won't sleep too well and feel like shit when I get up and spend all day walking round like a brain dead zombie - at least I'll be in good company !

Plus I've not had a cigarette for four days now so I'm not good to be around today !!

The Curse of Each Way Betting

Saturday 3 January


Wasn't expecting too much action today once three jumps meetings failed to beat the freeze. However there were seven tips between three of my services, producing one winner and 4 fourth places which were advised each way 1/2/3 !! Happened to me so many times last year, so again feel vindicated in my decision to switch to backing win only.

Won £7.50 today, which won't exactly change my life, but on a very uninspiring day I'll take anything positive. Didn't bother with the football today. Not too keen on betting on the FA Cup these days, and with matches being called off throughout the morning I decided to pass.

33/1 Winner !!!

Thursday 1 January


Was getting ready to write a post about a dismal start to the New Year, when out of the blue, in the last race of the day Daring Origyn romped home in the bumper at 20/1. Tipping Legends advised a half point each way bet at 33/1 and luckily I fell out of bed in time to get the best of the prices.

A Day of Reckoning

Time to look at how everything adds up for the last year or so in terms of profits, subscriptions, missed opportunities, fuck ups etc.


I started this blog on 1 October 2007, although I started following the advices of my initial tipsters a few days before this.

My original subscriptions were as follows:-


Isiris £1695 (23/09/07) until 31/12/2008
Mark Holder £897 (24/09/07) for 6 months
Henry Rix £999 (23/09/07) for 6 months
Steve Lewis Hamilton £725 (24/09/07) until 01/05/08
Mathematician £49.99 per month (so 3 months - £150)
Optimum Racing £197 (3 month trial to 31/01/08)
Paul Jones NH / Cheltenham ante-post service £195 (this is the 08/09 price, can't find a record of what I paid last year but it was roughly the same I think.

Total paid £4,858

Between 23/09/07 and 31/12/2007 I made a profit of £5,271. Effectively paying for the subs to that point.

My experiences with the services are all detailed throughout the blog, but due to disappointing results I dispensed with the services of Mark Holder and Henry Rix after the initial six months.

Was looking for other services to increase my portfolio and so boost the profits. Received an invitation to join Blue Sky Racing for an initial six month subscription, but if you read the blog back this was an unmitigated disaster for me and I gave up once the losses reached over £3,000.

Made a much better decision to join the Tipping Legends horses and golf services and have made excellent profits following their advice since the summer.

Finally, the last service I got involved with was The Form Analyst, Graeme Dand. This is a brand new service and I'm sure Graeme won't mind me saying it's very much a work in progress. However, in the short time I've been with him it's clear that Graeme is indeed a great form student, and he will produce great returns for his subscribers.



Subs paid 2008

Blue Sky Racing £500 (25/04/08) for 6 months
Tipping Legends £555 01/06/08 for 6 months
Tipping Legends £1275 - year to 30/11/09
Mathematician £49.99 per month (£600 for year)
Steve Lewis Hamilton £1,100 - year to 01/05/09
Graeme Dand £95 for 3 months to 15/01/09
Optimum Racing £1,197 - year to 30/06/09
Paul Jones Cheltenham Service £ 195

Total subs paid in 2008 £5,517.



In summary then, since September 2007 I've made a profit of £27,021 and paid subscriptions of £10,375 !! This gives a net profit of £16,646. In addition there are the extra costs of making the phone calls - say £40/month so another £500 or so to come off there.

Obviously I've spent a huge amount on subscriptions, partly due to trying to find the best services for me and I'm now very happy with the ones I have now.

If I could have anticipated the results I wouldn't have joined Mark Holder, Henry Rix or Blue Sky Racing. I would have saved £2,396 in subs and £3,302 in losses (ie these three cost me £5,698 !!!). However that's all academic and those are the results.

Also, I did miss out on extra profits by missing winners through various circumstances - but all my own fault. Two consecutive Mondays in November stick out - missed 4 winners while I was in hospital getting checked out after my motorbike crash, and then the following week I totally forgot to ring SLH's line and missed out on a 16/1 double - over £2000 went begging on those two days alone.

Another thing which has held me back I think has been buggering around with the staking plan. Obviously all the services use different levels of points or units, and recommended betting banks and it was causing me problems trying to amalgamate them all into a plan which worked. Finally worked a plan out in November which seems to sit very well with how I want to play the game, in terms of staking and betting style - each way betting has largely been binned except for advised each way doubles and the golf bets.

Isiris has now closed down, it may re-open from March 1st and KB will write to us in February to confirm whether he is coming back or not. If he does, then I will re-subscribe.

Overall then, I think a very satisfactory year in 2008. Made some bad decisions and some stupid mistakes, but given the services continue to provide similar results in 2009 then things are looking very good indeed.


Subs I need to pay in 2009 will be around £5,000 if Isiris don't come back, I guess another £1500 if they do. Most of my subs are paid well into the New Year, and I may time my renewals so they all end on 31 December if I can ...doesn't really matter but if I do go down that route, then I will spend less than forecast.

Target for 2009 then from the tipsters - a profit of £30,000 before accounting for subs so I would like to clear £25,000 this year. It's a tall order but I think the last few months have shown what is possible, and I'm confident that I can achieve it.

Would like to make additional profits from sports betting, price trading and poker. Not got anything in mind in terms of a target as yet, just keep disciplined and work hard at it and see how it goes.

Think I've covered everything there, but if you have any comments or questions then ask away.

Good way to end the year

Wednesday 31 December


Four bets on New Year's Eve and two winners to ensure I finished the year with a good profit on the day.

Will be back later on today with the final SP for 2008, with all subs etc accounted for and my thoughts on the new year.
