Profit and Loss w/e 31/05/09

Disappointing week with which to end the month with six losing days out of seven, topped off by a very poor day on Sunday.

Missed £200 off the losses on Tuesday as well which hasn't helped (!) but all the figures are now correct.

Last day of the month as well, with May showing a profit of £1,945 to take the profit for 2009 to date to £19,460.

Plenty to look forward to in June with the Epsom Derby meeting and Royal Ascot the highlights, although with my record at the big meetings so far this year I'm taking nothing for granted as to what might happen !

The week up to today then...

Shocking Sunday

Sunday 31 May


Was expecting a fairly quiet day to round off the month, but you don't always get what you expect in this game and it was a dismal day with no winners from the horses, and Rory McIlroy failing to fire in the golf - where a final round of 70 would have been enough to lift the prize, his very disappointing 75 left him in 12th place. Ian Poulter is currently three shots off the money going in to the final round in the US tonight. Would be good to see him get in the places, but after the last couple of weeks I'm not going to hold my breath !

Tipping Legends had three more losers today to round off a poor month for them, in stark contrast to the heights they hit last year they lost 26 points to advised stakes this month. June will be a busy month for them with the Epsom Derby meeting and Royal Ascot both part of their Festival Specials package, so it is to be hoped they perform considerably better on those than they have recently.

A bad way to finish the month, but it has still turned out to be a very profitable one - which considering the start I made in May isn't bad at all.

I have included the stakes on the US Golf and will update the figures should Poulter run in to the frame.

Another Small Loss

Saturday 30 May


The Form Analyst and Maths were the stars again today, with TFA advising Dansili Dancer at 8/1 (won at 5/1) and Vainglory e/w @ 20/1 - third at 7/1.

His third bet would have collected as well - Bazergan advised e/w at 15/2, but five non-runners reduced the field to seven, and so two places, and of course Bazergan finished third !

Maths had one winner from one selection at 7/2, but everything else advised came nowhere, apart from Salerosa which came 4th for Equine Investments, but the bet was 1pt win, 0.5 pts place at 9/2 and so overall it was a losing bet.

Looking ahead to tomorrow's golf, I'm on Rory McIlroy at 16/1 in the European Open - win only - who is currently tied 3rd, three shots off the lead so a chance of a decent payout if he can shoot a low number tomorrow.

Small losing day

Friday 29 May


Despite having three good winners today, I still ended up showing a small loss. The Form Analyst continued his recent fine run with a 7/1 winner, and both of Maths selections were also winners, albeit at short prices.

Five losing days out of six though, so hoping for a better day tomorrow.

Managed to get out

Thursday 28 May


Seems to have been a long day today one way or another but I finished on a high note, thanks to Tipping Legends and Baby Strange a winner at an advised price of 8/1.

Other winners today were from SLH on his exchange line with Ngong Hills and Maths selection Gift Horse.

The two form guru's couldn't find a winner between them - indeed I passed again on theformguru.com's 4pt win bet on Patkai, not for me at that price - wish I'd left their other three out as well to be honest as none of them were placed, despite the biggest price advised being just 7/2.

I'm not a fan of these short priced horses they keep giving out, but it's early days yet in my trial, so we'll see what they come up with over the next few weeks.

Not the best

Wednesday 27 May


Just the one winner again today, courtesy of Equine Investments, who were keen on Noble Storm at Beverley. Their initial advised price of 11/4 had already gone by the time the e-mail arrived, a fact they acknowledged a couple of minutes later - advising that anythng down to 15/8 should be taken. As it was I got £67 that those brave souls at William Hill allowed me (something soles anyway) at 9/4, with the rest at 2/1. There was a 10p rule 4 off the morning prices, but the horse was backed on track as well, setting off at an SP of 5/6.

Nothing doing anywhere else, with very little to enthuse about on what was a very poor day's racing.

Small loss

Tuesday 26 May


Bit of a frustrating day again with just the one winner, Total Impact at 9/1 - given by Chris The Form Guru.

Elsewhere, I was on three well backed placed horses - Seattle Storm 10/1 to 3/1, Mr Rev 12/1 to 9/2 and Hansomis 16/1 to 8/1 - the last two both being in the Redcar 5.10.

As it was I was absolutely level going into the last action of the day, a lay of Bob n You at Huntingdon. However the horse won, which meant a small loss on the day.

Not far away

Monday 25 May


Was a relatively quiet day considering it was a Bank Holiday Monday. Obviouly when Chris, The Form Guru takes the day off then there is a big reduction in the number of bets and so it was today.

SLH advised a place lay on his exchange line on Crossguard, but the liquidity on the market was non-existant for most of the day and so I left a bet in there to be matched near the off if possible. As it was the horse continued to drift and I wasn't matched - decided not to try and get matched in-running which proved a good decision as the horse was placed.

theformguru.com advised a 3 point win bet on Knockara Beau @ 4/5. Now this is not my sort of bet at all - odds-on for a start and the horse's first run over fences. As it was Knockara Beau did win, just, but I've no regrets on sitting this one out.

As for the bets I did place, there was just one winner but with two seconds at 16/1 and 10/1, as well as places at 10/1 and 7/1 it was a small losing day which might have been a lot better.

Interesting development at Optimum Racing where they have now scrapped their nonsense 1-10 pt staking plan, and also they are no longer going to include the "extra" information on the account bets. Probably a sensible change, but it doesn't inspire any confidence with all the chopping and changing that is going on. Having said that more than 6 months of losses now so they have to do something. But I'm staying out, and will not be following any of their bets in the remaining 5 weeks of my subscription.

Another fantastic week, and this is a month of rapidly changing fortunes. On May 14th, after a dismal start to the month my profit for the year was standing at £10,819. Now just ten days later and I've doubled that !

Exceptional performances this week from SLH and Nose Ahead.

Another busy week coming up, starting with the Bank Holiday tomorrow, see where I get to by next Sunday - it won't be dull !!

No joy on the golf

Sunday 24 May


**** EDITED AT 9.45 PM ****


A small loss on the days racing, with a couple of winners and unfortunately there is nothing to come from the golf either.

Marc Warren started well and after four holes of his final round he stood at 9 under, tied for third and only three shots off the lead - and the possibility of hitting the jackpot. However, he then hit the skids in spectacular style and was 6 over for the rest of his round and he finished tied for 21st place.

As I write this, Charley Hoffman is still playing but now out of contention for a place - he got within one shot around the turn but dropped two in two and that was him done. Katherine Hull has finished on 15 under (tied 14th), currently two shots off the places - having shot one under for her final round, the worst score by any of the current top 20 players.

So pretty disappointed to come up empty handed after having three chances of hitting the frame, but it's been a great week again and I'll be back a bit later with the weekly profit and loss figures.

Loss on day £855

On and on

Saturday 24 May


Up bright and early this morning, well early anyway. Been up and about since seven, so just taking some time to update my spreadsheets and catch up with Saturday's results.

I knew I had the potential for another top day as the Making It Pay boys had found Festoso at Haydock - given out in the morning at 25/1 had to go to Betfair to get on at the price, and even after the reduction factor, I comfortably beat the SP of 16/1.

Went out not long after that, and was pretty much in the dark about how I'd got on until I got in late last night. The only other race I saw yesterday was Moheebb which I watched in my local Laddies, first time I've been in a bookies since Boxing Day - middle of Saturday afternoon, 5 people in and two of them were playing the machines. Pretty desperate places these days.

Anyway, checked out the results when I got in, and once again I liked what I saw ! This really is an amazing run I'm on again, and what is particularly pleasing is that the winners are being shared around all the services I use, which is perfection as far as I'm concerned.

Made a couple of mistakes yesterday, the bet on Jumbajukiba came through just as I was leaving the house and so rushed back in, switched the PC back on and stuck £100 win on it, instead of £100 e/w ! Also had £50 e/w on Able Master instead of £25 e/w so another £50 went west there. Not made too many cock ups so far this year, certainly compared to last year, but always a bit annoying to throw money away.

Looking forward to the golf today - it's highly likely to prove very frustrating, but I'm still hoping for a decent return.

Marc Warren was joint second after the second round of the BMW PGA Championship - as I've had £100 e/w on him at 125/1, I was hoping he might still be there when I checked last night - however he is now joint 6th, just one shot off the money - having bogeyed the 18th, which you just don't do at Wentworth ! See how he goes today.

On Charley Hoffman again this week, and he's repeating last weekend. A slow start, then shot -5 for his round yesterday and now stands 3 off the places, so if he can shoot a low round today you never know.

Meanwhile Katherine Hull is in a 6 way tie for fifth place in the Corning Classic, somwhere in the USA ! three shots behind the leaders.

So potential for a decent pay out somewhere, and also potentially going to be very frustrating. Two top 10's last week for no return, see if this week is any better.

Good Friday

Friday 22 May

Only three winners from 23 bets today, but it was still a good day as Nose Ahead found another big priced winner in Fell Pack, advised at 10/1 - drfting to an SP of 14/1. Got BOG courtesy of Bet365 and the extra £400 paid for a few losers.

No joy with any of my personal bets, tried a few forecasts and tricasts, as well as a couple of horses I saw noted elsewhere.

Busy Saturday in store for sure, will have time to get the bets on before I go out for a few beers tomorrow afternoon - the next update will be on Sunday morning.

Another amazing day

It's shaping up to be another memorable week - last Thursday my yearly profit had dipped below £11,000, now just a week later and I've topped £20,000.

The day didn't start too well with three of the services putting up Puy D'Arnac in the first at Haydock, and when he failed to deliver I immediately went £400 down.

However things turned out brilliantly in the end with some great tips particularly from Chris, The Form Guru - who had nine selections on the day, 2 winners advised at 20/1 and 16/1, three 2nds at 18/1, 9/1 and 8/1 and two thirds - both advised at 8/1. Indeed only one of the nine tips finished outside the first four.

Anthony (Nose Ahead) had two bets, Ivory Lace (e/w) third at 20/1 and Mujood a winner at 11/1. Also put the two together in an each way double. Only just missed the jackpot as Ivory Lace was finishing fast having been held up out the back and was beaten less than a length. Happy to settle for the place double though !

SLH continued his very impressive run with Our Jim, a three point win bet advised at a minumum of 7/2, but available as big as 5/1 which I secured before the price collapsed, the horse eventually winning at 11/4.

SLH does it again !!

Wednesday 20 May


6pm and it was time to make the SLH callback for the evening racing. Hadn't had the best of days, to say the least - was still waiting for my first winner.

SLH put up 2 selections, a one point win on Black Beauty and a two pointer on Woody Valentine.

Two hours later, and what can you say - two more winners, advised at 4/1 and 5/1 and its another very profitable day.

In the chase to get the bets on before the prices collapsed, I totally forgot to phone the exchange line - only remembered once the 8.0 had been run, and I missed two losers on there and saved £200 ! Really was my night.

Quiet start to the week, but a few changes

I've decided that the time has come to make one or two changes to the way I'm playing. These will take effect immediately.


Firstly, I'm sacking Optimum Racing. I've said before that once you lose confidence in a service then you don't reduce stakes you should stop. That is where I am now with Optimum. A loss so far this year of 73 points to their recommended staking plan and absolutely no sign of any improvement. Indeed there was no profit either in the last quarter of last year so we're looking at 8 months of poor results.

I've said before that their current staking plan is diabolical in my opinion, and the addition of the extra information on to the account smacks of desperation. I don't doubt that things will eventually take a turn for the better for this service, but "I'm out" as they say.


Further changes, I am now playing SLH account bets to £100 a point to recommended stakes (and will back each way where advised).

I am also discarding my win only plan on Tipping Legends, which has patently failed to work since I adopted it. I would be in profit had I been following advised stakes - instead I am £5000 down so far this year. A no brainer really, I will be betting £100 a point from now on.

I am reducing the value of the points on my bets with Chris, The Form Guru - no reflection on the results so far, just that there are so many bets given out each day in terms of points staked (something like 100 points a week so far) that I need to scale things down a bit to allow for natural variance of results. Therefore, the new stake is £25 per point rather than £50 per point.

Tuesday 19 May


Would have been absolutely level today had I not had to pay Betfair £2.25 commission on my successful lay of Can Can Star, which was part of the placing of the Equine Investments bet today. However, would have been a winning day had I been around to take advantage of High Class Equine's advised price about their winner.

So largely forgettable really !

Sunday

Sunday 17 May

Nearly there now, and another good day on the horses with Tipping Legends getting 2/2 and The Form Analyst finding a winner with his only selection.

Couple of losers from Nose Ahead, as well as a short priced loser from theformguru.com rounded off the action for the day.

Being Sunday it's time to book the golf results, and although there's nothing to come it's been an eventful week.

Lee Westwood got himself into contention after a great second round but was well and truly blown off course yesterday and that was hime finished.

The other tip in the Irish Open Chris Wood (advised at 110/1, I got 100/1) finished tied 10th, great shame his third round let him down - shot 69/67/76/68, five shots out of the money in the end on 8 under which is where he was at halfway. Think he might be selected again next week.

Charley Hoffman is three shots out of the money half way through his final round, so I'll settle him as a loser, although he did come home in 30 shots yesterday so you never know !

Special Saturday

Saturday 16 May

The month of May up to this point had been one to forget with several bad days and, with the horrors of last Thursday still fresh in my mind, I looked forward to what was going to be a very busy day with the usual anticipation, but also with fingers crossed that things would go better than they had recently.

I think it's fair to say that it was a decent day !

Made one or two changes to the staking yesterday, which I will expand on in a later post, which worked well - bit it was a great all round performance by most of my services which created one of the bigger profits I've had since I started.

SLH had two bets on his mainline, Bret Maverick was advised at a minimum price of 16/1, but I managed to get 20/1 and 25/1 on my bet - delighted with that as the horse won at an SP of 9/1. His other bet Toss The Caber, also halved in price - advised at 7/1 he finished second at 7/2.

Graeme, The Form Analyst, has had a bit of a slump recently which had dented his confidence. However he decided to come out fighting yesterday and managed to find five selections after a long session studying the form. His had work was duly rewarded with winners at 10/1 and 13/2, a second at 20/1 (beaten a head), and another place at 12/1. It was a big day for him and he got his reward which was great news.

Nose Ahead and Make It Pay both had a good day as well, finding the same two winners as Graeme - so doubled up on both of these.

Catch Up Time

Time doesn't stand still in the racing game, and after having 4 days away from the blog, I've got a lot of catching up to do.

I'll start by listing the results from Wednesday to Friday, then have a break and come back with the weekend round-up - which I'm glad to say will be worth waiting for.

Before that though, need to get the horror story of Thursday out of the way.

Thanks also for the good wishes regarding the eye op. Pleased to say all seems to have gone well, and my vision should continue to improve over the next few days. Just got to take it a bit easy - which comes naturally to me !!




Wednesday 13 May


Thanks to Ben for his help in getting the bets placed on Wednesday. However despite managing to find three winners, it turned out to be a losing day. These big meetings have been a major disappointment so far this year, and York's Dante meeting was no exception.

Osteopath makes me feel a bit better

Just a quick update.

I had a follow-up eye op on Wednesday after having laser eye surgery last November. Just had my left eye tweaked - under warranty if you like - was pretty much blind as a bat in both eyes before the first op. Have now got perfect vision in my right eye, but the left didn't respond quite as well to the initial op, hence the follow up.

As a consequence I can't really spend any length of time in front of a computer screen at the moment, and so I'm unable to update the daily results on here.

My aim at the moment is to bring everything up to date on Sunday evening.

The last three days have been pretty desperate, with yesterday possibly my worst losing day ever with £2200 being left behind after more than 20 tips failed to produce a single winner.

Today was looking like another losing day until The Osteopath came fast and late to land the Newcastle 8.25 and got me in front for the day.

Dropped £2300 in the last three days, which is ominous considering how things have gone at the weekends so often this year. But staying positive, and looking forward to a decent weekend to try and get this month back on track.

Best of luck with your betting this weekend, I will post some sort of update here on Sunday night.

Much Better

Tuesday 12 May


Got on the right side of things early on today, and although the evening results were disappointing, it was still a very profitable day.

Another two from two for Equine Investments, a good winner for Tipping Legends and a good day for The Form Guru.

Bit of a struggle with a couple of the prices, mainly due to being a bit late putting on Optimum and theformguru.com's bets due to work - and a non-runner being declared between the bets being given out and getting them on. No real harm done, with the place part of each bet resulting in a small loss on each. Also missed out on a point on TL's winner, but I struggle to get on more than buttons with Skybet anyway.

Going to be out of action for the next couple of days as far as blogging is concerned, will still be betting but there will be no updates here until Friday evening.

I have now left responses to all recent comments made - thanks very much as always for your thoughts on what I'm doing, they are much appreciated.

Stopped the rot

Monday 11 May


Today's profit will hardly register in the overall scheme of things, but after dropping over £4000 in the last five days it's good to be booking a positive result.

There's a £300 loss from the weekend golf which I'm including today rather than re-work all last weeks figures again.

Best of the day was a winning double from Equine Investments - the second leg late in the day which averted another potential disaster.

A P McCoy was my nemesis again at Towcester with a great ride to conjure a winning run out of Hunting Tower to deny Mohawk Star, advised by SLH.

Running short of time tonight so will respond to recent comments tomorrow - and also address one or two thoughts on the staking plan. Haven't made any adjustments yet, but a few things to ponder.

Profit and Loss w/e 10/05/09

It's not been a great week to say the least, but I've been there before - this time last year was very similar - and no doubt there'll be plenty more weeks like this before I've finished.

The Dante meeting at York is the highlight of the coming week, with some top quality racing on offer. Hope my results match the sport that is on offer !

Bad end to a lousy week

Sunday 10 May

After a disappointing few days, I was expecting that today would be a quiet day with little action from the services.

As it was just Tipping Legends, and Chris The Form Guru gave me anything today - yet still managed to find 11 losers between them and take another £1000 off the years profits. The last loser of the day was the aptly named Notanotherdonkey, pulled up with a circuit to go !

Lost over £5000 this month already, with four £1000+ losing days in the last nine.

Tipping Legends are responsible for over 70% of this loss, and I'm going to have to make changes to the way I play on their selections.

The level stakes win only plan is clearly not working on their bets since I adopted it - their advised stakes for the year are still showing a profit, whereas I am now over £5000 down (£3600 of this in the last 10 days). Things could be even worse as I missed all their bets on Grand National day which all lost.

The addition of three new services this month will clearly increase the daily variance, although added together they are in front on the month so that's not a problem.

Not making a snap decision based on a poor week, after all I won £14,600 last month so I'm not under any pressure on that score - it just that things don't feel quite right at the moment and I'm not happy with it.

Trouble with this time of year is that it is now so busy, there ain't a lot of time to think. However I'll have a look at things tonight and see what I come up with.

The golf doesn't look too promising either, but I'll hold off settling these as losers in case Weekley or Villegas burn up the course in the last round and run into a place.


Anyway, today's tale of woe....

Still Losing

Had a good couple of days at Aintree and Haydock, but back now and time to get up to date.

It's not been a good week and I added further losses on Friday and Saturday, which means I'm over £4000 down on the month so far !

Will be a quieter day on Sunday I would imagine, a winning day would be very welcome.
