Late night update

Wednesday 30 September


Running very late tonight so will keep things short, a decent day again with a good winner from Maths and a profitable day from TFG also. SLH's A/W selection finished second.

EI have stumbled a bit in the last few weeks after a fantastic summer and the two account bets today were unplaced, although one of the mentions - Secret Venue won. Backed that but gave most of it back on other non account bets.

Got a few comments I need to respond to which I will try and do tomorrow when I have a bit more time.

Not the best day

Tuesday 29 September


Really frustrated today - far too much hassle and crap at work, and with the internet on my laptop running really slowly and also having trouble getting a signal on the mobile I struggled to get on today.

Thankfully I've finished work for this week - and the sooner I finish altogether, the better !

I missed the price on the first SLH bet as I was waiting for what seemed like forever for oddschecker to load up.

Then the bookies were dicking me around with the each way double - had to have the bet with five different firms and I still didn't get everything on.

Isiris mentioned yesterday there might not be a bet today, and I sort of put them to the back of my mind. Then with the hassles of getting the SLH bets on, and the TFG bets which came through at the same time - I totally forgot about ringing the line until I got home tonight. Lucky for me I missed a 2 point each way bet which was unplaced saving me £200.

I also missed a loser from TFG - left a bet at lunchtime hoping for a match later but it wasn't taken.

As well as missing a couple of the advised bets, I also ran out of time to look at betting some of the mentions - and Maths and EI both spotlighted a winner today.

Looked like being a real horror story on the football tonight. Eleven aways selected by Winabob, and with five minutes to go not one of them was winning.

A late flurry meant I ended up with three winners and I was very grateful to get away with a £605 loss on those bets.

One bet one winner

Monday 28 September


As anticipated last night it was a very quiet start to the week, with the only bet being advised on the SLH A/W line.

An each way bet on Cheers For Thea at a minimum of 7/1 - backed on the nose as I do with all of these, and the horse won comfortably at an SP of 11/2.

Profit and Loss w/e 27/09/09

A very up and down week, but ultimately another profitable one with another £915 added to the pot.

Best results were from betting the extra mentions on the daily messages, particularly the Maths and Equine Investments messages last Tuesday.

Good contribution from Football Elite this week as well.

Maths, HCE and Isiris had a good week, but widespread losses from everywhere else particularly The Form Guru.

Another near miss on the golf, that's three second places and two other top four finishes in the last five weeks. Hope one more big payout can be landed before the year is out.

Pretty modest fair on the racing front in the first half of this week, indeed Monday looks like being very quiet as TFG, TFA, Maths and SLH have already stated there will be no bets.

A busy week in store on the football with a full Football League and Blue Square match list in midweek.

One of the highlights of my year next weekend with my annual trip to Paris for the Arc de Triomphe. Can't wait !

Level day so far

Sunday 27 September



*** Edited 12.05 am Monday ***

Nothing doing on the golf tonight. Ochoa never looked like winning as Gustafson birdied the first and opened up a three shot gap when she eagled the fifth. Final margin of victory was three strokes, as she could only manage a level par round of 72.

Another second place finish - the third this month.

Better news on the football though as Deportivo won 1-0 on Sunday evening, to make it three out of four this weekend for Football Elite. This result also ensured I made a small profit on the day.

The Form Guru had one winner today with Record Breaker advised as a 3 point win bet at 4/1. This ensured a profit on his selections even though the other five were unplaced.

Isiris gave out Ascendant at 11/8, which was backed right down to 5/6 at the off - the horse just prevailing from Spirit Is Needed. The other selection, an each way on Kingdom Of Fife produced a small profit by finishing third.

Equine Invesments had just one bet today with Lost In Paris finishing second.

Football Elite had Almeria today, but the match finished 2-2.

Another loser from Best Under today as their pick ended 3-1. Early days with this service but it has got off to a very bad start with only seven correct from their first twenty selections - and with half the bets being advised at odds of 7/10 or shorter. It's a long term game of course and football betting is marginal at the best of times so it will be interesting to see how this goes over the next few weeks.

Retief Goosen won't win the Tour Championship even without Woods so I can book that loss now.

The other golf pick this week was on the Asian Tour. Gaganjeet Bhullar was advised as a 1 point each way bet at 28/1 for the Asia Pacific Panasonic Open. The event was priced up by three "bookmakers" - Bet365, Stan James and Skybet. Skybet offered me £0.60 each way, Stan James £1.40 each way and Bet365 £1.19 each way.

I declined those very kind offers and saved myself £200, which will cover the one point I missed on Ochoa if she wins as I couldn't get the advised 9/1.

Stan James and Skybet are no great loss to me, as they never lay a decent bet anyway but I need a new account with Bet365 as they did play the game with me for a good while this year and they are also BOG of course.

Crazy Swings

Saturday 26 September


Bit of a mad week this one, with a four figure profit today - the second of the week following on from a £3300 loss over the previous three days.

The Form Guru hit a winner with his first bet of the day, Lochiel. Couldn't get the advised 7/1 - Corals once again gave me two fingers on the horse, although they accepted the same bet on 15/2 chance Pearly Wey in the following race. None of the other TFG tips troubled the judge.

SLH advised From Dawn To Dusk which finished third in Market Rasen's big race, and third was also the position of Kingswinford - one of two selections from EI today, the other finished unplaced.

*** NB Just read RM's blog and realised EI also advised a 0.5 pt bet on Fol Hollow in Hamish McGonagall's race. In my haste to get on, I never actually saw it - just thought the text was a list of prices for Hamish McGonagall. No harm done !

Maths tried a similar strategy to that adopted last week - a win bet on Benedicte and then an each way double on Falasteen and Dazzling Light.

A cracking day for Maths and almost a great one.

Thought I'd done well with the price on Benedicte in the morning as I secured 2/1 against the 7/4 advised price. However Benedicte drifted out to 7/2 on the off and as my bet wasn't BOG I wasn't too happy. Decided to take a gamble and had £100 on @ 5.2 on Betfair and left an in-running lay to try and boost the odds a bit. Worked out well enough and I effectively got 3/1 for my winner.

The each way double was frustrating as Falasteen got the first leg up no problem and I was then looking at a £1000 pay off if Dazzling Light came in. Was almost counting my money as Dazzling Light travelled really well throughout - was odds on before they turned in, but then found very little when asked and finished beaten around a length in second, having traded 1.24 in-runnung.

It was a similar with Isiris today - again the advised bet was an each way double. The first leg was Benedicte and when that won I wanted Super Collider for a £2500 win. The horse was well backed but when push came to shove in the race the response was pretty disappointing and I had to settle for the place double again.

Another profitable day on the football, with Football elite getting two from two - both bigger than 2/1.

Four out of eight from Winabob ensured a profitable day for them also, thanks to a late late goal from Leeds.

Staking

I've had one or two comments in the last week or so asking me to explain the current staking plan so I thought I'd do that now while I'm watching the today's racing and Soccer Saturday.

It is pretty straight forward really - I'm using £100 per point on all my racing services with the exception of...

The Form Guru which is £50 per point due to the volume of bets advised

Isiris at £50 per point as the minimum bet size advised is 5 points.

Maths - he has recently changed his advised staking, with the selections being dispensed with and account bets staked at £50 or £100. I am staking my bets at five times that level. Any other bets mentioned in the e-mail will be staked at £20 and so I would have £100 on these.


The Tipping Legends golf service is staked at £100 per point.

Winabobatoo are advised as level stakes and I'm betting these at £200 each.

Football Elite advises most of his bets as 10 pointers, so I play £20 per point so each bet is £200 effectively.

Best Under looks to advise bets at either 5pts or 10pts and I'm currently playing these at £10 per point, so a maximum bet is currently £100.


Any other bets I have, based on information received or my own thoughts are staked at random as you might have noticed - it seems to be working though !

Bad Friday again

Friday 25 September


No update last night, as a bit of lunch and a couple of pints turned into an all day session. Cracking day as well, the unplanned days are always the best.

Feel pretty good as well today, although updating yesterday's results is a pretty sobering experience !

Only the SLH A/W line and The Form Guru were in action on Friday, but with Chris coming up empty handed again it proved to be an expensive day.

Two losing football bets from Thursday night add to the sorry tale.

What do you think of it so far....?

Thursday 24 September


Shocking day today with no winners whatsoever. Got a couple of football bets later on tonight but they will only make a dent in today's loss should they win so I'll hold those results over to tomorrow.

Maths bet Diablo lost out to Mhilu in what was effectively a match at Perth.

Punter Profits and SLH put selections up in the same race, the 3.10 Fontwell. PP gave out Capall Eile who was on the floor at the second, while SLH's pick Doubly Guest jumped appallingly and was pulled up after five fences.

The Form Guru is having a bad week so far, 31.5 points down in the last three days, but as I said last week I know what the score is with this service and it's not worth getting too worked up when two or three bad days come along together. Started last week in a similar vein but finished very strongly, hope for the same again this time.

The SLH A/W selection was unplaced, and no joy either from the extra bets today - although Ladbrokes saved me £50. Last minute decision to do a £50 r/f on the PP / SLH bets in the 3.10. Lads would only let me have a £25 r/f and by the time Corals site had clunked it's way to the race they were off !

Quick mention for Tipping Legends - still get the e-mails although I've stopped following the bets. The service had a major restruscturing earlier this month as current and former subscribers will know, with JC effectively steering the ship on his own now.

He's hit a good run as well this week, with Go Go Green advised today at 25/1 winning at Pontefract at an SP of 9/1. Early days yet, but will be interesting to see if this run is built on in the weeks ahead, or whether the pattern throughout this year will be repeated.

As for me, just have to hope for a better day tomorrow !

Places no good

Wednesday 23 September


Couple of winners today with Agent Archie for High Class Equine at 9/2, and Fiorentina winning for Football Elite. Had to take 11/10, best price when advised was 6/5 but had no chance to get that due to work commitments.

Otherwise there were plenty of near misses, which all added to a sizeable loss.

SLH advised two horses to lay on his exchange line. Kells Castle which won, and Benny The Piler which didn't. Unfortunately I couldn't get matched at the advised price on the latter as the horse drifted alarmingly before the race. I could have taken the lay in running and would have been matched as the horse travelled well during the race but I don't like doing that as a rule.

There was also a loser on SLH's all weather line.

Equine Investments advised an each way double with the first leg winning and the second horse finding one too good.

The Form Guru selections proved to be very frustrating. A three point bet on Ghost Dancer went astray as Jamie Spencer did what he does best, hold the horse up in last place come with a good run and not quite get there - beaten a neck. Johnstown Lad travelled like the winner for much of his race but his run flattened out when it mattered most in the final furlong and he finished third. French Art advised each way finished fourth, and the only bet to produce a return was Capable Guest - third at an advised price of 14/1.

The extra bets / mentions etc failed to add anything today - Arthurs Edge and Tamasou both finished second, beaten a head and a neck respectively, and a reverse forecast on Tamasou / Johnstown Lad looked good for a while, but We Have A Dream became a nightmare for me as my horses came in second and third.

Extras pile on the profits

Tuesday 22 September


Big winning day today thanks to the extra information provided by the services in addition to the tips.

Maths message didn't feature an account bet today - he had one planned featuring each way doubles in two races at Beverley but one of his choices was pulled out shortly before the e-mail was issued and he had to put a substitute selection in, which caused him to pull the bet from the account. Decided to get involved anyway with his alternative suggestion and got first prize with both Rio Cobolo and Hurricane Thomas winning.

Same story as yesterday for EI with no account bet, so a few mentions. Sphere and Captain Dunne were an idea for an e/w double but only two places in the second race meant that was a no go - pity as both horses won, albeit at short prices. However he did find two winners with Hurricane Thomas and Balata.

As for official account bets, SLH played in the Stratford 3.40 with Kickahead and Le Corvee, who finished first and third although a reduction factor for non-runners reduced the expected payout.

Isiris had one bet with Seven Is My Number winning the novice chase at Stratford. 15/8 was the advised price, but my internet on the laptop was on a go slow and I couldn't get any of that. Had to have the £400 on Betfair, achieved 7/4 after commission, which was some way off the returned SP of 2/1.

The Form Analyst's woes continued with Goodwood Starlight finished down the field at Folkestone - the market told the story here, 7/1 the advised minimum price in the morning - the SP was 16/1 !

Two bets from Winabob and the Monday lunchtime message time meant I had to take under the odds on both selections - got them on Betfair tonight and not too far out with the prices, but over a season it will add up - especially after commission. Just have to do the best I can, easier for me to get the prices for the weekend bets.

Equine extras provide the profits

Monday 21 September


As expected last night, there wasn't much action to be had in terms of tips - just two in fact, both of which lost.

Howewer despite having no selections on the day, Equine Investments mentioned a few horses in the races they had looked at, and as I needed something to get me through a long afternoon at work I decided to back them. Left Ottoman Empire alone as it was against the SLH A/W bet.

Very pleased with the outcome though as there were two winners amongst the mentions - Hobson and Captain Royale.

Profit and Loss w/e 20/09/09

*** Edited 10.40pm Sunday ***

Nearly the end of September and we've reached the back end of the turf flat season - where the hell has this year gone ?!

It's hard work for many of the services at the moment, evidenced by the fact that since Ryan Moore gave me that big win on the golf four weeks ago, there have been 20losing days in the last 28. That golf win was the high point for the year in terms of profit and I'm now around £4000 below that mark.

As always there's plenty of racing on offer in the coming week, most of it looks pretty moderate but no doubt there'll be plenty of opportunities to get involved.

There'll be more football bets as well as the leagues are all taking shape now, and this weekend has hinted that things should go well on that score this season.

Had a couple of comments a few days ago regarding the current staking plan, so I think a post on this and also a run down of the current portfolio is due. Only working Monday and Tuesday this week, so I'll try and do a post on this sometime during the coming week.

Late Goal Woe

Sunday 20 September


*** edited 10.40pm sunday ***

Nothing doing with the golf (finished 4th) and the Best Under bet was undone by a 90th minute goal - another one !!


No not that goal !

The one which scuppered me today was the equaliser scored by Lille in the 94th minute. Football Elite put up Lens at around 7/4 and would have hit three out of three this weekend but for that late late goal, a £550 swing against me.

Such is the way of football betting, I had a couple of injury time goals which went my way earlier in the season on personal bets so it all evens up over the course of a season.

Not much on the horses today, a place from TFG was the only return from just three bets - already looks as if tomorrow will be fairly quiet, TFG having a day off and nothing from SLH on his mainline either.

Looks as if I'll drop £200 on the golf with Lorena Ochoa later tonight in the Samsung Ladies Championship. After two rounds she was just one shot off the lead, but cocked up the back nine big style yesterday coupled with the leader shooting the lights out and she starts tonight seven shots off the pace in fourth place. It's only a 20 runner field so I'm on win only. The current leader shot 63 last night so a low number is possible - not expecting anything though !

There's also a small bet from Best Under later on tonight in the Greece so I'll come back later tonight and update everything.

P&L as it stands now will be updated shortly.

Back on track

Saturday 19 September


Edited Saturday at 9.40

Just realised I forgot to include the Isiris bet for the Ayr Gold Cup on Hogmaneigh advised Tuesday.

The idea behind this bet was to lay off shorter on Betfair nearer the race time, as the horse was guaranteed to get in and to get a free bet on it.

Only trouble was it never shortened so we got stuck with it.

I'll adjust the figures now....



*****************

Very good all round performance, with only The Form Analyst failing to produce a return from their tips today.

The plaudits go to Chris, The Form Guru who found the winners of both the Ayr Gold and Silver Cups, Kaldoun Kingdom at 12/1 (10p rule 4) and Jimmy Styles at 16/1.

It was only after the first one went in that I wished I'd chucked a couple of quid away on some doubles, as none of my other services tipped in either race - top bombing though !!!

Maths had an excellent day - which was very nearly a fantastic one.

His first selection Haadeeth was beaten a short head by 16/1 shot Marcus Cicero and when his second bet Diktalina was beaten a neck ten minutes later I wondered whether today would follow the same pattern as yesterday.

The third horse Maths put up was Bernie The Bolt, was also combined in an each way double with Diktalina. Bernie The Bolt stormed to victory by 4 1/2 lengths to land a good win and also get the place double up....and so I was just a neck away from a 66/1 win double.

Isiris got back to winning ways with Brett Vale - a win bet advised at 9/4, which eventually drifted out to an SP of 11/4.

Just one bet advised from Equine Investments - Class Is Class each way collected the place money by finishing fourth.

The football services performed well today - Winabob had six winners from eleven selections and Football Elite's only bet of the day was also a winner.

Friday Frustrations

Friday 18 September


I said last night that I found yesterday a bit frustrating - well yesterday doesn't compare to how I felt after today !

Start with the good news, which was the only winner of the day from TFG - The Which Doctor backed down from an advised price of 6/1 to an SP of 7/2. Both Equine Investments and The Form Analyst gave the horse a positive mention in their messages but declined to tip it - indeed TFA put one up against it, which finished well beaten.

Otherwise today was a pretty trying day.

Nothing doing with any of TFG's other selections, although for what it's worth Felday won it's race in the Ayr Bronze Cup - it was just unfortunate there were eight other horses in front of him racing on the other side of the track !

Saved £100 by not backing Woody Waller, missed the advised price and tried for a match on Betfair, but the money came late and I had to pass.

Nothing doing with either of the Equine Investments selections today.

High Class Equine put up three each way selections, and had Locksley Hall beaten into second having traded at 1.05 in running, Huntingfortreasure second at 16/1, and Ipswich Lad fourth at 5/1.

Isiris were very confident with their bet on Sophie's Beau at Newmarket, and it looked like I was going to land a big win until 50/1 shot Side Glance collared the tip in the last 50 yards - Sophie's Beau traded at 1.14 in running. Rang the line for a possible second bet half an hour later - "devastated" was the word KB used to describe how he felt, the word I used after the race was a bit shorter !

The days action was completed by Kinky Afro - put up on the SLH A/W line, advised each way. Of course I do these win only, and in keeping with the way the day had gone Kinky Afro was second at 12/1, beaten half a length.

Another slap in the face was the victory for Pokfulham at 10/1 at Ayr today - a loser last time out for both EI and Maths.

May as well get all the bad news out of the way tonight - both the selections for the European Tour golf this week have missed the cut so I'll record those results today.

Clearing the decks for a good weekend, that's what I'm hoping anyway !

Could have been even worse

Thursday 17 September


Very frustrating day with only one winner, and knock-backs galore !

The winner, a very welcome one for TFG, was Wiseman's Diamond - advised at 8/1 but that price wasn't available when the bet was given out - 13/2 was the best price on Oddschecker and I couldn't get any of that either, so left an order on Betfair and eventually got 6/1 late on before the price crashed - the winning SP was 4/1.

The Equine Investments text came through early today, advised at top price of 6/1 - a non-runner (9/1 - 10/1 shot) came through at about the same time so most of the bookies were SP only, and took the opportunity to cut the price before reforming the market, and laying any bets, 4/1 was the best I could do when I finally managed to get on, that didn't last long either and the horse was well backed all day ending up at an SP of 11/4.

It was no surprise that I couldn't get on the Isiris each way double, although I did manage to get on £50 e/w of the £200 e/w I was after, for the remaining stake I backed the first selection e/w, and decided to back the second horse to win. Out of pocket there as Capeability ran a dismal race to finish unplaced.

Plenty of bets advised by Winabob today for the weekend, took over half an hour to get on - managed the advised price on most of the bets, but Corals were an absolute joke - five outright refusals to lay anything "can't proceed - bet slip refused" and the other one came back with a quarter of what I asked for. Managed to get on elsewhere apart from one bet, which I'll hopefully get matched on Betfair before kick-off.

Bad day again in terms of the P&L, just the one winner as mentioned earlier, which was badly needed otherwise it would have been a big losing day.

Macs bet means profit

Wednesday 16 September


Looked very much like a seventh straight losing day after this afternoon, where a small profit from The Form Analyst selections was well and truly wiped out by a 14 point loss from TFG. That's the nature of The Form Guru service - 33 points dropped in the last three days, having won 80 points in the first 10 days of the month.

The profit for the day came via SLH's all weather service. I missed the winner from here last Saturday, but made up for it today with Mac's Power advised each way at 8/1 - I bet these win only as many of you will know, not been the optimal strategy so far this year but it worked today as the horse won very well at an SP of 15/2.

JP Phone (left at) Home

Tuesday 15 September


Stayed up late last night to watch the tennis so it was around 2am by the time I got to bed. Grabbed every last second of sleep this morning with the snooze button doing overtime, and in the rush to get ready and out of the house I left my mobile behind.

As a consequence it was after one before I got on the laptop and caught up with all the messages and bets, and of course I'd missed most of the prices.

Managed to get everything matched on Betfair more or less, but I'd have been as well missing everything as winners were pretty thin on the ground.

Three bets from Winabob tonight produced just one winner, missed all the prices initially when the bets were given out yesterday - managed to get two matches on Betfair including the winner, Watford at 2/1, then got a tenner matched at half time on the Coventry v Sheff Utd match - which was about the best news all day as I saved £190 when the bet lost.

Six losing days on the spin now, nothing too drastic but a winning day tomorrow would be very welcome.

Quiet

Monday 14 September


One of the quietest days of the year with only High Class Equine putting up a selection on the horses - looking at some of the results today it was probably just as well.

A loser from Best Under which I placed over the weekend was the only other action today.

Profit and Loss w/e 13/09/09

A small loss this week of around £400, had I been able to place the bets on Saturday I would have been just about level on the week.

Three day meetings at Ayr and Yarmouth and weekend fixtures at Newmarket and Newbury are the highlights of the racing programme this week. Not much jumping action - the only two cards scheduled are not until next Sunday, so SLH has taken the opportunity to take a short break - his next messages will be on Thursday.

Weekend Catch Up

Had a great day out at Doncaster yesterday - only managed one winner at the track, Manassas at 14/1 which won me a nice few quid on the day, and covered what I missed out on with the tipsters.

Maths bet came through early yesterday and so managed to get on no problem. However, I was already at the track when the rest of the tips came through and I couldn't get an internet connection on my mobile (four of us on three different networks tried and we all had the same problem).

I was intending to place on the bets on Betfair mobile, there would have been no point trying to get everything done on the phone with the bookies - it would have taken far too long, with being kept on hold and knocked back etc. Could have phoned Betfair, but that would have meant placing around 20 bets with them - many of them unmatched I guess - too much hassle really on a really busy and noisy day, so I decided to leave them alone and hope that I didn't miss too much.

Missed out on £465 from an Isiris winner, and also a winner from SLH's all weather service - I could have had this one as it ran at Wolves last night, but I totally forgot about it to be honest !

Sunday was a losing day despite an 8/1 winner from The Form Analyst. All the other racing bets were losers apart from an each way place from TFG.

The football services aren't making any contributions to the profits so far, but it's early in the season and plenty of time to get things moving in the right direction.

The golf proved very frustrating again - Chris Wood, advised at 66/1, led at halfway but faltered when the pressure was on in the last two rounds to drop back to a tie for 12th place.

Two selections in the BMW Championship - an each way on Geoff Ogilvy, who was in the lead at -5 after 9 holes of his first round, but it was all downhill from there; and a win bet on Padraig Harrington, who was a shot out of the lead after the second round, but then Tiger Woods went round in 62 yesterday and now everyone is playing for second place - which is no good to me as I'm on win only.

The final golf bet was of no use to me as only Skybet priced up the Uniqa Ladies Open, and they would only allow me £2 on the tip Gwladys Nocera at 12/1.

I declined their very kind offer and sat the tournament out - Nocera finished tied third and hopefully cost Skybet thousands in lost profits as a result of refusing to lay any decent bets. I can only wonder what they would have laid me if mine was a winning account - I've lost over £1000 to these tossers in the time I've had the account open. It matters more when there's money on it - chance would be a fine thing !

Early Finish

Friday 11 September


A losing day with very little action to report.

Both Maths and Equine Investments put up Cosmic Sun each way at Doncaster, horse finished third and so lost a minimal amount on the bet.

The Form Analyst came up empty handed with Pearly Way, finished in sixth without ever threatening to get involved.

SLH got Kells Castle beat on his exchange line, for a one point profit - but ended up losing on the day with Diamond Brook out of the frame in the 4.15 at Bangor.

No updates tomorrow as I'll be at Doncaster races, next update will be on Sunday evening.

No joy on a quiet day

Thursday 10 September



With The Form Guru service having a no bet day, the amount of action was considerably reduced - tried to make up for it with one or two extra bets, forecasts etc but no joy.

Maths found the well backed King's Colour as a single and also the first leg of an each way double, and when that came in there was the prospect of a good pay off. With the second leg Aaman being backed down to 11/10 it looked promising - but not to be as Aaman could only finish third.

Elsewhere two losers from The Form Analyst which between them beat one horse home - the pre-race drift on Purus was ominous, and proved to be correct with the horse being the first one beaten. They didn't show the start of the race on ATR as they were still showing a race at Tipperary, but according to the Racing Post Piscean's jockey was very late removing the hood and he was slowly away - but then again he usually is !

The only other action on the day came from Equine Investments, who tipped up Iron Out - finished 4th.

Still in catch-up mode today, with a bet in the last race of the day last night and also action with the World Cup qualifiers it was getting late by the time everything was done and dusted.

Try and get back to normal tonight with an update on the Thursday action.

Another profitable day on Wednesday, thanks largely to Chris, The Form Guru who weighed in with another big winner, Incomparable (adv 12/1) which was backed down to an SP of 6/1, always up there and won by over two lengths.

Other winners on the day came from Equine Investments and Punter Profits.

SLH had a loser on his main service, and two more losers on the A/W line - which is having a poor run at present.

Managed to collect on the Salisbury Winabob bet as mentioned yesterday, as the Czech Republic, Germany and Spain all won.

Football Elite were undone by Slovakia for the second time in four days, as the bet was for a Northern Ireland victory - 2-0 defeat effectively ending their chances of qualifying.

Tuesday

Tuesday 8 September


Just catching up with yesterday which was another very good day.

SLH had three winners on the day, unfortunately two of them were advised as lays on his exchange service ! However, the win for Bijou Dan ensured it was a profitable day for him.

The Form Analyst managed to spike his recent poor run with Mujood, who prevailed by a head from Satwa Laird - which was put up by TFG.

TFG had Santefisio, advised at 5/1 - was very late getting the message yesterday so had to take 5.3 on Betfair just before the off, I think there might have been a rule 4 from the lunchtime price anyway.

Punter Profits tip was Sarah's Gift, which won the Sedgefield 4.45 - this was one of SLH's lays so ended up losing on the race.

Winabobatoo gave out three bets in the Blue Square Premier on Monday - with Salisbury winning and the other two games finishing 0-0.

I'm going to have an issue getting the prices on the midweek bets here, as the message goes on line Monday when I'm at work and access to their site is blocked. By the time I can access the e-mail an hour later the prices will probably have gone. Won't be an issue for that much longer, but it's a problem for the time being.

Might not be an issue with Premier League or Football League bets but that remains to be seen.

Just have to do the best I can - also need to see if they hold the prices in the shops, which would be the best option I guess.

As for the Salisbury bet, I've put them in an acca with Spain, Germany and The Czech Republic tonight so I need all them to win before I get paid out - did the same to improve the prices on York and Rushden also.

Other action yesterday involved Andy Murray. Isiris advised him as an each way bet at 3/1 to win the tournament on Monday.

Played last night, saw him lose the first set and then go a double break down in the second. Got the Betfair odds up at that point and was amazed I could lay him at 2.6.

Don't know much about tennis trading, but watching the match and Murray's on-court demeanour I just had to lay him at that price - and never had a moments worry as he crashed out 7-5 6-2 6-2.

Very Quiet

Monday 7 September


Ended up with just one bet today, Even Bolder was a 0.75 e/w bet from The Form Analyst - he also gave out Elhamri in the same race, but that came through the front of the stalls and was withdrawn.

Angela Stamford finished in a five way tie for second place in the Canadian Golf last night - thanks to an eagle on the 17th hole, and so got most of the place money (dead heat rules applied, ended up with six places).

Brandt Snedeker is out of contention in the Deutsche Bank Championship

Profit and Loss w/e 06/09/09

After the worst week of the year, it was pleasing to get things back on track this week with a good profit.

Had a look back over the year to date figures the other day, and realised that since Cheltenham I have only had five losing weeks. That's five losing weeks in six months, which I think is remarkable considering what I'm doing is pure gambling, no trading, no trying to lock in profits etc.

Clearly got some very good tipsters in my portfolio, and hopefully the recent changes I have made will allow me tobuild on what I've made so far this year.

Big meeting this week is the 4 day St Leger meeting at my local track Doncaster. Will be there next Saturday, and maybe take in one of the other days as well.

Here's to a good week !

Disappointing

Sunday 6 September


Bradley Dredge finished second in the European Masters, but as I feared last night the player who beat him was Alex Noren, who was the tip last week.

Dredge bridged a four shot deficit to draw level around the turn, wasn't around to watch this afternoon but as far as I know he never actually took the lead. Noren secured his victory when he chipped in from a bunker for an eagle at the 15th and eventually won by two shots.

At least I got the place money, and that is now the best I can hope for in the Canadian Open where Angela Stanford has made a disasterous start to her final round and now lies one shot out of the places (3 over par for her round after eight). Hopefully she can steady the ship and I can get the place return.

A poor day on the horses, with no returns from any of the bets - the closest being the SLH e/w double with the second leg beaten a short head into fourth place.

I'll include the Canadian Golf result with Monday's figures, and I'll be back later on with the weekly profit and loss round-up.

Plenty of action

Saturday 5 September


Apologies for the number of late updates this week, but had a few things to do today so a bit late putting all the results together.

Another couple of winners from TFG today, and also got the 1-2 in the first race of the day the Haydock 1.55, quickly following up his 1-2 in the last race at Kempton last night. Couple of nice forecasts they would have been - both over 100/1 !!!

Losers from all the other racing services, and the football wasn't a lot better with only a short priced acca advised by Football Elite coming good.

So it was left to my bets using other bits and pieces of information which ensured a profitable day for me. Regal Parade and Les Fezzani were both given out by Andrew on the TFA forum, while EI gave a positve for Tiger Reigns at Thirsk.

A potentially exciting day in the golf tomorrow with two of this weeks picks currently in the top three of their tournaments.

Bradley Dredge (adv 28/1) lies third after three rounds of the European Masters at Crans-sur-Sierre. He's three shots behind the leader, Alexander Noren, who was tipped up last week !

In the LPGA Candaian Open, Angela Stanford (no, me neither) advised at 22/1 is second going into the final round. Five shots behind the leader but you never know.
