What's the damage ?

Wednesday 26 August


Just one winner today with Collateral Damage winning at an SP of 11/4, having been advised by Equine Investments at 4/1 to minimum stakes.

It was a marginal call, "probably wouldn't tip him at 7/2" - but 4/1 was widely available.

That wasn't a big enough price for The Form Analyst - who has been mentioning this horse for months as one to be on if the horse ever got it's optimal conditions.

Today was the day, but Graeme was looking for 11/2 - 6/1 for his 2 point each way bet (the horse had only won 3/43 races) and when that wasn't available the bet was pulled.

Maths also gave the horse a positve word in his message today "I said last time Collateral Damage was about to win and he's been gambled in the 3.40 race adn it's only the shortened price and the size of the field that stops me suggesting him."

So, everyone latched on to this one today, but had different opinions of what price constituted a value bet.

Nothing too much to get excited about elsewhere, with Lordship being an expensive loser. I've not seen the race, but from what Maths said on his forum the jockey gave it a very poor ride - came from way back to take third close home.

Have enjoyed reading the blog over the last few months and congratulations on the big golf pay out this week! Just one quick question, when you started out with your £6k bank what stakes were you betting to? I have a bank of £6k but am not sure whether to start off at £25 or £50 per point. Im using the same tipsters as yourself any advice to a relative novice is always welcome, thanks
