Much more like it

Tuesday 16 June


The first day of Royal Ascot today, but my profits came courtesy of the 5.45 at Thirsk.

The Form Analyst advised a 1 point each way bet on Twosheetstothewind at 9/1. I've decided to increase my stakes on TFA selections to £100 per point to bring the overall staking in line with most of the other services I am using. For a change my timing was spot on as the horse won well at an SP of 5/1. Slight mistake inputting one of my bets - £20 win instead of £20 e/w but not worried about that !

Nose Ahead also played in the same race with an each way bet on Jilly Why (previously advised last weekend). Unable to achieve the advised 33/1 (with Stan James) which was no problem as the horse drifted back out to that price on the off, and the majority of my stake was placed BOG. Jilly Why finished fourth, overcoming the disadvantage of a low draw, to collect a nice profit on the bet.

Most of my other bets on the day were at Ascot but it was a case of backing winners for no reward really, as I lost on the meeting despite having four winners.

SLH advised a three point lay of Mastercraftsman on his excahnge line and it looked like I would collect as Delegator got his head in front in the final furlong. However Mastercraftsman battle back to gain the day in the last 100 yards to win by a neck.

Maths advised Mastercraftsman as a win bet, also went with Scenic Blast and Gladiatorus - which was also Equine Investments' only bet of the day.

First day of Tipping Legends special for this week, with winners from the first and last bets of the day, and a place from Gala Evening at 28/1 (adv - which I missed), resulted in a small profit on the day and something to build on for the rest of the week.

A welcome winner from Chris, The Form Guru with Judgethemoment at 9/1 (advised) as well as an each way place with Aqlaam at 11/1 - which was a loser for Making It Pay.

Had a placepot, which went down in the final race despite having 4 in the race - but I could have had 4 more and probably not got one in the frame. The final dividend of £3775 was entirely due to the last race, where £5690 was in the pool before the race but only £87.90 after it.

Hi been following your blog for a couple of weeks or so now with interest.
Just wondering about the strategy of backing (In this case Mastercaftsman) and laying the same horse.

Hi Robert,

Not much I can do in cases like that really, I just put the bets on as advised and if the bets are contradictory then that's just one of those things.

I'm following all the advised bets from all the services and as long as they are profitable in the long term then I am happy.

Another issue I have on a regular basis is in the big handicaps where I can have as many as half a dozen horses advised in the same race.

I'm not really happy when this happens and have considered whether to bet them all - the problem I have is that the bets all come in at various times of the morning, and if I wait to see what everyone has picked out, then I miss the advised prices.

Decided that I am as well just backing everything and let the long term results take care of themselves.

Hope you continue to read the blog.

All the best
JP
