Derby Day

Saturday 6 June


Tipping Legends haven't been having a good time of it over the last few weeks, and following yesterday they had their work cut out to make anything of their Epsom special.

However, all of yesterday's losses were cleared in one hit when River Captain was an easy winner of the first, having been advised at 25/1. They followed up with Indian Trail which won at 11/1 (10/1 adv), and also landed places with Storyland (9/1 adv) and Northern Dare (25/1 adv) which both finished 4th - happily today, there were four places in both races !

Struggled with the prices on River Captain and Northern Dare - didn't get any of the 25/1 on either of the horses, had to take down to 16/1 on Northern Dare - the bet having to be split between four bookies before I got it all on.

Graeme, The Form Analyst, has been in great form recently but today wasn't so good with Kiwi Bay in third the best of his four selections.

As an extra to his service, he is currently looking in to placepots as a bi-product of his form analysis and he put one together for Epsom today. Unfortunately it went down in the first leg, but I used his work in combination with a few of the other tips and managed to get £1.60 worth of the £341.40 pot up for a profit of £384 on the bet.

Equine Investments had an each way bet on Tepmokea, which ran into the aforementioned River Captain, and came second - but still a good profit on the bet.

A three point loser from SLH was disappointing, Make It Pay and High Class Equine's bets both finsihed second, and theformguru.com's each way bet did the honourable thing and came fourth, caught on the line for the place !

Chris, The Form Guru had one winner - Coin Of The Realm, advised each way at 9/1 with Stan James. Regardless of the fact I can't get anything on with Stan James, the price wasn't there. According to oddschecker they cut it to 8/1 at 9.33 - the e-mail was sent at 12.48. Not the first time I've noticed this either.

This game is hard enough without chasing round for prices that were never there in the first place, or only available with tin pot firms like Sportingbet. No excuses for it guys, get it sorted !

The Derby of course was won in great style by Sea The Stars. Now this was given out as an ante-post bet by Isiris last October - 8pts win advised at 20/1 according to their newsletter at the end of last year.

I was on a long break at the time, or just returning from it and of course I haven't backed it. According to the newsletter, the bet was given out on 14/10/08 - I was back by then, but I don't remember the message, and I certainly didn't back it !

There were three other ante-post bets given out during that break which all lost, and a couple of un-successsful sports bets as well last year and I didn't back any of these either. Sea The Stars was one that got away though !

Finally, the golf might yet be interesting tomorrow. The two selections in the US have both missed the cut, but I've got Gregory Bourdy running for me in the Welsh Open e/w at 80/1. Now I was following the European Tour website on Thursday afternoon and Bourdy was leading at -5 after 14 holes of his first round. Checked back half and hour later and he had taken NINE on the 15th and dropped back to level par ! However he's managed to hold himself together pretty well and he is currently tied 7th with one round to go - two shots off the lead, and one off the place money. Had some near misses in the last few weeks, so hoping for the best tomorrow.

Hi JP,

Good to see that all is going well.

Are Isiris kicking off again later this year? Will you be rsubscribing?

JP said...

Hi anon, yes Isiris are starting again. I have re-joined them and looking forward to it.

It will be that I will just be trading the selections on Betfair by then, as my activities with the bookies are becoming more restricted with each week that passes. Plenty of trading opportunities available with the bets being given out late, although I'm sure I won't be the only one trying to do the same.

All the best
JP
