Great day again

Saturday 31 October


Busy busy day today with 40 bets advised in total, and once again I came out with another big profit.

Football Elite has been a shining light in my portolio since the football season started. So much so that I decided to increase stakes to £300 per bet as from this weekend.

Five bets advised this weekend, with the first two playing today - and another great pick advising Fulham to beat Liverpool. Managed to get my full stake on with Ladbrokes at 10/3, and a 3-1 win meant a £1000 profit on the bet. Auxerre were the other bet, and they won 2-1.

On the other hand Winabob are still struggling to make any progress this season. Nine bets today produced four winners, four draws and one loss and just a half point profit on the day. As last night a 90th minute goal went against me, Doncaster scoring very late to peg back Blackpool to 3-3 to foil my 2/1 bet.

SLH had a busy day on his exchange line, but it wasn't a profitable one. His lay of William Hogarth at Ascot was correct, but backs of Manor Park, Pettifour and No Refuge all went astray.

Two winners from two selections on the all weather line, but once again a winner ran without my money, as I never saw any of the 2/1 about King Of Defence. The eventual SP was 11/8. However was on Onceuponatime at the advised 5/1 which won 15 minutes later.

The end of another trying month for The Form Analyst saw two third places from three bets. I think it's fair to say that the analysis has been far better than the results on the account this month, but it's results that count and it's a third straight losing month.

One bet from Maths today, and one winner with Collateral Damage, winning at an SP of 11/4 after drifting on course. Got around half the bet on in the morning at 9/4 with Blue Square who don't do BOG, with the rest on Betfair at a similar price. Decided to try and trade myself into a better position and had £110 on at 4.28 pre race, and got out in-running at 3.25. Ended up with 2.66/1 for the win, which was fair enough.

Chris, The Form Guru ended a great week with one winner - Keys Of Cyprus at 6/1, and two each way seconds, Pascha Bere at 16/1, and Jordaura at 10/1, the latter just failing to get there and losing by a head.

No joy for Punter Profits, same story as yesterday with three losers out of three, while Isiris had a winner with French Opera, but gave most of the profit back when Izita Star was beaten.

Tipping Legends had the second day of their NH special and once again showed a profit, but it could have been a whole lot better. The one winner was Sphinx, advised at 12/1 which I couldn't get. Won very easily at 9/1.

Nothing doing with the other bets but that doesn't tell the full story, My Petra was travelling powerfully in the lead turning into the home straight when Barry Geraghty took the wrong course ! The twelve day ban he received after the race was the least he deserved.

Tamarinbleu looked second best over the last two or three fences, until Ollie Magern tied up on the run on. Unfortunately for me though, Purple Moon came fast and late down the outside to take both of them and get up by a head.

Mentioned last night that Paul Jones had given out an each way bet midweek in the Charlie Hall Chase. That horse was Snoopy Loopy, who needed to finish in the first three (of five) to collect the place part for me - which was partly the reason for giving the bet out as he expected the field to cut up. However the horse drifted on the day to a bigger price than I took midweek and never travelled at any stage and was eventually pulled up.

In the golf Anthony Kim is through to the final of the Volvo World Matchplay, where he will play Oliver Fisher. Looking forward to watching that tomorrow.

Another Friday feast !

Friday 30 October


Another cracking day, with SLH and The Form Guru leading the way today.


SLH had two bets on his mainline. Tarvini was advised at a minimum price of 7/1. Could only get £25 on with the bookies (9/1 with Ladbrokes) so had to take the other £75 on Betfair.

Tarvini drifted like a barge pre-race and I decided to have another £50 on it at 15 pre-race, and try and lay it off in-running. Finally got hit as they turned out of the back straight, as Tarvini gradually worked into the race. The horse then took the lead at the second last and went on to win by a length and a half at an SP of 12/1 !

The second SLH bet was Dawn Ride, had to split the bet four ways to get on - the order I left on Betfair was finally matched just before the race. Was out the back early on and not jumping well and I thought I'd done my money. However his rider got him into the race as they turned for home and was challenging along with Kisha King when that one fell at the last. Stayed on well to take the race on the run-in.

Chris, The Form Guru had a sensational day, but I couldn't get the advised price of 12/1 on Jump Jet and watched that one romp home at half those odds without any of my money on.

In hindsight I should have taken a bit of the 10/1 that was available, but I left an order on Betfair which never got filled and that was that.

Did get on all his other bets, which included Daraz Rose (adv 12/1) and Aaim To Prosper (adv 11/2, got 5/1) which both won, Hawridge King (adv 40/1, not there) and Solway Fair (adv 11/2) both second and Harriet's Girl third at 22/1 advised. Aaim To Prosper and Hawridge King were in the same race !

The prices on these selections are invariably very difficult to obtain (advising prices only available with Sporting Bet for example), certainly to the stakes I want, but I can generally get similar on Betfair so it's not a major issue these days. Only becomes a problem when the price runs away from me like it did on Jump Jet, and I've got to decide how low to go.

The tips themselves are very profitable despite the dizzying ups and downs, great as part of a portfolio such as mine.

Two bets from The Form Analyst today, and two places - thought Evelith Echo would have gone very close to landing the 2.40 at Wetherby had he not blundered at the last, but he was down on his nose and lost momentum and eventually finished third.

Graeme's other bet was Sound Stage - who finished second to the afore mentioned Jump Jet, a sore one that !

Punter Profits had a rare bad day, with Command Marshall (on two systems) and Tanks For That both losing, and Isiris continued their poor recent form with Tora Bora, who ran a shocker at Wetherby.

Two selections from Tipping Legends produced a five point loss, which was a pity as I've reverted back to doing the bets to £100 per point.

Maths had a bit of a novelty bet today featuring three horse in each way doubles and also a small win bet on Headache. Was looking at a half decent payout if Headache could get in the frame, as Ministeroftheinterior was third at 8/1 and Rum King won at 9/1. However despite trading at 13/8 in-running and odds-on in the place market Headache could only manage 5th place. Minimal loss on the bet though.

Winabob has eleven selections this weekend to try and get the season back on track. The first of them, Accrington Stanley looked good to get things off to a great start. That was until ten-man Grimsby equalised in the 95th minute with just about the last kick of the game !

Got a winner with Pricewise Extra today with Teeky. Missed the 5/1, Ladbrokes changed the price between me selecting the horse and submitting it - took their 4/1 but got their BOG SP of 9/2.

Got a decent bet going in the golf on Anthony Kim in the Volvo World Matchplay in Spain. £200 to win @ 14/1 and after he won both his games yesterday, he was sitting pretty at the top of his group and could afford to lose his match with Scott Strange by three shots today and still go through.

Nothing is ever that easy in gambling though, as he missed a putt from inside three feet on the 16th hole to go four down ! He had to win the last hole to go through, and he produced a fantastic third shot to within six feet to win the hole and go through to the semi-finals.

Paul Jones' service is up and running for this NH season, and he's changed things this year whereby he will now be advising ante-post bets midweek using the early prices on the big weekend races during the season.

Obviously my main focus with Paul's service is the ante-post bets for Cheltenham in the New Year, but I'm sure this will be a profitable add-on to that.

Already in a good position for the Charlie Hall Chase, as I'm on each way three places at 10/1 and only five horses have been declared tomorrow. Perhaps even more noteworthy it was Betfred who laid my bet !!!

Should be a very busy weekend, with plenty of football bets advised, the golf and no doubt plenty of action on the horses as well.

Have a great weekend !

Great day for The Form Guru

Thursday 29 October


Didn't think there was a great deal to get enthused about at lunchtime today, with a succession of "no bet today" messages, it looked like being a pretty dull day.

Only three services in action - SLH put up Apple Charlotte on his all weather line, could only manage third at 5/2 (adv).

Punter Profits had three system bets today - Commander Marshall, a 7/4 winner and Chapel Flowers was a selection of two of their systems. The best price available when I looked was 4/7 and I'm not into backing horses at that sort of price, it won at an SP of 8/15.

Incidentally I have increased stakes on Punter Profits selections to £200 per bet from today to bring them more into line with what I stake on my other services.

Star of the day was The Form Guru - four bets at the Wolverhampton evening meeting and two winners, Loyal Royal (14/1 adv) and Mystic Touch (10/1 adv). Profit on the day of over 30 points.

Only other bet I had today was the Pricewise Extra selection - Greenisland, unplaced at Lingfield.

Near misses !

Wednesday 28 October


Nothing much went right for me on Wednesday, with only two winners on the day, and I managed to back six horses which traded at 1.55 or less and didn't win ! Quite how I managed to lose over £600 on the day, I really don't know.

Isiris were all set to give a maximum each way account bet on Big Bay at Nottingham, until KB decided to cancel it at the very last minute. A bad decision as it turned out as the horse won at 2/1 (5/1 was available at the time the message was given out). Doubt I would have got much on each way against the odds-on favourite, but I'm sure I could have made something decent out of it given the way it was backed. Will never know though, sadly.

What's worse is that he did give a main account bet out at Punchestown - Some Present at evens against Sweeps Hill arguing that the bookmakers had made the wrong horse favourite.

Some Present was ultimately backed into favouritism at 4/5, but the race was a complete farce as highlighted by this in running form comment..."led, slow jump 1st and almost stopped 2nd, soon headed until disputed lead at crawl, began to race from before 3 out, ridden and narrowly headed before straight, on terms briefly run-in, soon headed again and kept on without matching winner".

Not a good way to start the day, and it didn't get a lot better.

SLH played in the Haydock 1.50, advising Pilca at 10 and also Silver Steel at 2.06 to cover the stake. Pilca was never really in it, while Silver Steel tried to take the second last fence home with him - and could not recover from that jarring blunder and could only manage second to Incorporation, having traded as low as 1.05.

Maths had an account bet comprising singles on Arizona John and Ede's Dot Com and an each way double on the pair. Ede's Dot Com was an impressive winner at Kempton, but the first leg had already gone down in the afternoon. Arizona John travelled powerfully until he was asked for his effort and found absolutely nothing, fading tamely into fifth place - another one to trade very short, as low as 1.02 for the place. Would have been cursing if Ede's Dot Com's race had been the first leg.

The only other winner advised today was The Form Guru's Gordonsville at 11/2, but he also found three seconds Make My Dream at 6/1, Kiwi Bay at 9/2 and Garter Knight at 12/1.

Just one today from Tipping Legends, a three point win bet on Alanbrook at 4/1, another odds-on loser ! Finished third behind Gordonsville.

Also put those two in a £50 reverse forecast and it looked good a furlong out, until the favourite Dayia came through to split them. Did think about combining the three in tricasts but decided against it.

One point of note on the forecast, following my recent win Ladbrokes would only offer me a £1 reverse forecast, so did the bet with Paddy Power instead.

Pricewise Extra played in the Haydock 1.50 with Widely Accepted, which meant I had three out of five of the runners covered and still couldn't find the winner !

It really was just one of those days.

Tuesday 27 October


A maximum bet winner from Tipping Legends was the highlight today - Rowe Park was a five point win bet at Southwell. Must admit I thought he'd got chinned on the line by Excellerator, and the betting on the photo on Betfair suggested the same, but Rowe Park held on by a nose.

The Form Guru had five bets today, and lost ten points - No Wonga was his best of the day, finishing second.

No Wonga was also today's each way account bet for Isiris - a small profit on the place for me after commission.

SLH's A/W bet today was Speedyfix, who finished way down the field despite being well backed - Maths had Speedyfix as a mention but I didn't double up on the bet.

Nothing doing with the two Pricewise Extra selections today, with both Turn On The Style and Bogside Theare well beaten.

Nothing Doing

Monday 26 October


As expected there was very little action today, with just two of my services in action and no returns from either of them.

Onceuponatime was advised on SLH's all weather line and finished fourth, while The Snatcher was put up by The Form Analyst and finished unplaced.

Unable to access the Isiris message today so don't know whether they had a bet or not - I guess not but I'll find out tomorrow.

Was at home today so had a play on the Pricewise Extra selection - D'Artagnans Dream, but it was out of the frame.

Tomorrow doesn't look particularly inspiring either with flat cards at Yarmouth and Catterick and an all weather meeting at Southwell, but you never know there might be a hidden gem lurking somewhere !

Profit and Loss w/e 25/10/2009

Updated 10.30pm Sunday


Back down to earth after last week and I've dropped nearly £4000 since last Sunday.

The losses were spread fairly evenly, with only Tipping Legends, Football Elite and Punter Profits finishing the week in front. SLH won £1409 on his exchange line, but I dropped £1400 on his other two services !

Looking forward to the week ahead - as always the racing gets better as the week goes on, Monday looks like being fairly quiet with one flat and two all weather cards, but you never know.

Best of luck.

Losing day to end the week.

Sunday 25 October


Updated 10.20pm Sunday.


One of the pitfalls of following a number of tipsters is that from time to time they'll all select the same race - and come to different conclusions !

So it was with the 3.20 at Aintree this afternoon, where I had four of the eight runners tipped. Despite that, none of them finished in the first three - and the way the race was run it was never going to be any different once Astarador fell at the second fence.

The Form Analyst narrowed it down to two - but he made the wrong choice, discarding the winner Tramantano in favour of The Duke's Speech who was never sighted.


SLH put up Leslingtaylor who as the form comment said was "never near leaders" and his finishing position of fourth, beaten 12 lengths was close as he ever got.

Tipping Legends were on Astarador, who fell at the second as I mentioned before and the final selection was Palomar for The Form Guru, who belted the first fence and was beaten at that point, eventually finishing seventh and last.

The day wasn't a total disaster though as The Form Guru found Spring Breeze who won at 15/2 and SLH advised a lay of Cappa Bleu who finished third.

Isiris ended a dismal week with an each way place (third) in the shape of Manighar at Longchamp, while Punter Profits excellent winning run was ended with both Dreams Jewel and Classic Fly beaten, the latter finishing just a neck down in second.

Football wise, another loser for Winabob with Everton going down 3-2, but Football Elite had two winners from three selections today to continue their great start to the season.

Nothing doing on the golf either this week as Ryan Moore failed to fire in the final round of the Frys.com Open - currently three shots off the money with just a couple of holes to play.

Great day for TL, but a loser for me.

Saturday 24 October


Disappointed to make a loss today, but gave a bit away with my own bets which made the difference between profit and loss.

Just over a week now since I started following Tipping Legends again, and another cracking day today - which was the first day of their NH special.

Three winners from seven bets advised - at 10/1, 8/1 and 7/1 and a profit on the day of 22 points. The winners were Nampour in the first at Aintree and then Frankie Figg and Hunterview within five minutes of each other.

Nothing from SLH on his mainline, but a very strong four point bet on his exchange line on Reve De Sivola paid dividends. The all weather bet, Bluebok was backed down to favouritism but was unplaced.

Seven bets and seven losers for The Form Guru, a loss of 14 points of the day - the best run from Hillview Boy who finished second to Hunterview.

Isiris have had a shocking week, and that continued today with Finzi finishing tailed off at Chepstow.

Maths account bet was a split stake bet on Clear Sailing and Inspirina at Doncaster. Clear Sailing was a non-runner, but Inspirian finished second for a place return on the each way bet.

Both Winabob and Football Elite advised bets on the Burnley v Wigan match today. Winabob got it right with Wigan at 2/1, but their other three bets advised were all draws and so a one point loss on the day. They have one more game tomorrow, and the other three Football Elite bets this weekend are also played on Sunday.

Finally, lost £300 on my own football bets today which wasn't too clever - tried a draw treble and an under/over 2.5 goals bet but came up empty handed on both. Also lost £150 on other bets on the horses.

TFG leaves it late again

Friday 23 October


Backed two winners today, both of which suffered rule 4's or reduction factors.

As he did yesterday, The Form Guru left it until his final race of the day to find a winner.

Half A Crown (16/1 adv) and Imperial Sword (12/1 adv) were the two selections in the Ayr 5.30.

Couldn't get the price on either horse at lunchtime so had to go to Betfair to get on. Slapper was pulled out at the start, causing a 10p rule 4 from the 16/1 SP - reduction factor on Betfair was 12.5% on the win market and 16.3% on the place.

Two from Tipping Legends today included Crocus Rose, advised each way at 12/1 and won at an SP of 15/2.

Managed to get £75 each way on with the bookies, but had to split the bet three ways. Then there was the rule 4 - Ladbrokes and Totesport both deducted 15p (neither of them show that on their results slips on-line), while Paddy Power only deducted 5p !


Punter Profits had another winner today, but I didn't back Baily Storm at the best available price of 4/7 - the horse won OK, but I'll happily sit out bets at those prices.

Maths had another losing main account bet, Sharaayeen finishing way down the field at Doncaster and this service is having another poor run. Not been a good year at all and the recent changes haven't had the desired effect so far. See what happens in the next few weeks.

1.01 Gubbed !

Thursday 22 October


Losing day again today despite a 25/1 winner from The Form Guru.

High Bird Humphrey was one of two put up by SLH on his mainline.

Gave Whisky Magic 15 lenghts at the start, but despite that he had come to take the race on the run-in. Then he dogged it, the ears started flapping and Whisky Magic came back and joined him on the line.

For all the world it looked like a dead-heat, but the judge gave the verdict to Whisky Magic. Don't know how he split them based on the photo shown on RUK. 22K traded at 1.01 in-running, and a sore one for me. Still at least it kept "G-Man" one of the resident tossers on Betfair happy, he starts a thread whenever a 1.01 gets beat - whatever turns you on I suppose.

The 25/1 winner was Zaif in the last at Brighton. Unfortunately it was only a half point each way bet, and I didn't get the 25/1 either as I was on at a lower price on Betfair. Still it was a very welcome win, which helped keep today's losses down to a reasonable level.

Punter Profits advised Zorro De La Vega in the 5.00 Ludlow - a double stake here as it was selected on two of their systems. Unfortunately, three of my other services advised horses in the race and so I ended up losing £100 on the race.

Tipping Legends, The Form Analyst and SLH mainline and all weather came up empty today, although Steve did give Quentin Collonges on his exchange line.

Pretty expensive week so far, but as I said yesterday you never know what's around the corner in this game and so I'm just looking forward to having another go tomorrow.

Shocking Day

Wednesday 21 October


You never know what each day will bring when you're doing this, I was anticipating today would be pretty quiet with poor quality racing and bad weather. Couldn't have been more wrong and I ended up having the worst day I've had in two years, started badly and went downhill from there.

Isiris blew up in spectacular style, two account bets and an insider - all losers and 22 points done in 90 minutes !

That was quickly followed by two losers from SLH and another four points gone.

The Form Guru lost 9 points, with Shake On It providing the only return of the day in the last race at Kempton, while Tipping Legends had three losers and the SLH A/W horse finished second.

Hopefully back on the winning trail tomorrow !

Back to winning ways

Tuesday 20 October


Had a few problems getting on today due to lack of time and being late picking up a couple of the messages. However everything worked out OK in the end and I managed to place all the bets even though I had to play in-running on the 4.40 at Exeter.

SLH advised two against the field in the 4.40 - Young Albert and Free World. As I was late making the call, I missed the prices and had to leave bets to be matched later. Got on Free World pre-race, but Young Albert advised at a minimum price of 7.0 was backed all the way to be the favourite on the off.

Decided to take the bet in-play and duly got matched as Young Albert looked beaten down the far side and traded as high as 16 before staying on well to beat I'm A Legend (matched at 1.02) by a neck.

Needed that to show a profit on the race as both The Form Analyst and Isiris advised Ours each way. Again missed the boat with getting on early, and had to mess around on Betfair to get myself the equivalent of the advised prices, but it was all to no avail as Ours finished fourth.

One winner from The Form Guru, Perfect Act at 6/1 but no joy from any of the others and a small profit on the day.

Punter Profits made it four winners in a row with Tetlami in the Exeter bumper.

SLH's all weather selection Brandywell Boy finished second at 8/1, advised each way, but Winabobatoo's sticky start to the season continued with their only selection Peterborough losing at Doncaster.

One extra bet, Giant Sequoia mentioned by Maths won at 7/2.

Expensive for a Monday

Monday 19 October


Not the best start to the week with over £1000 lost, and just one winner on the day plus a successful lay.

SLH put up Kashima for the second time in as many weeks, and the result was the same as last time - 4th !

On his exchange line he advised a lay of Particle, and he managed to get this one beat despite it trading at 1.1 in running.

No returns from any of The Form Guru's bets today, so start the week with a 14 point loss which is nothing out of the ordinary for him.

The Form Analyst gave a two point win bet on Go Amwell, never nearer than the fourth place when it crossed the line, some way behind Orchard King, which was the Punter Profits bet today.

No joy either for Tipping Legends today, the most noteworthy run was by Tabaret - advised each way, was in the lead less than 100 yards from the line, traded 1.21 in running for the win, and didn't finish in the first three !

Hope for a better day tomorrow.

Profit and Loss w/e 18/10/2009

After a tricky start to the month, things are really going well again. Amazing how these runs come along. Nine straight losing days to start the month, followed by eight winning days in the last nine.

Friday was clearly the highlight of the past week, and it was a good week for many of the services.

Looking ahead, plenty of racing on as always next week with Doncaster and Aintree the weekend highlights.

Football wise, there's a programme of championship matches in midweek as well as a full list of games next weekend.

So as always there'll be plenty of betting action for me, and hopefully the current run will continue for a while yet.

Winning day again but....

Sunday 18 October


Another profitable day, thanks largely to Football Elite who had another two winners today at around 3/1 and 6/5 to continue their great start to the season.

SLH had a successful lay on his Exchange line with Ibberton beaten into second in the last race at Kempton.

Two out of two for Punter Profits, Calusa Caldera and Baltazar King - both at short prices but welcome winners all the same.

A three point winner for The Form Guru with Ingleby Star as well as a 14/1 third meant another profitable day.

No joy for the one Tipping Legends selection, third, and the Isiris bet today The Big Orse had to give best to Balthazar King.

Nothing doing with the golf either this week.

Cocked up today though. Forgot to ring the SLH A/W line - indeed it never even crossed my mind until I rang up the review message for his mainline and I suddenly remembered.

An each way bet on Colorus was the bet at a minimum price of 8/1 and the horse won by a short head at 5/1. One that got away, and especially disappointing as I did bet in that race as Maths put up First Blade and Simple Rhythm who were both beaten out of sight.

Really frustrates me when I miss winning bets, hasn't happened that often this year but missing three in the last three weeks has proved expensive. Part of the game though, and I've certainly ridden my luck this week so giving a bit back I suppose.

Equine sign off with a winner

Saturday 17 October


Equine Investments put up their final bet of the turf flat season today (although it was on the all weather at Wolves), and they finished off in great style with Bertie Southstreet going in at 9/2, having been advised earlier in the day at 8/1 - 10/1.

A profit of around 144 points to advised stakes and prices since May 1st is a terrific performance by any standards and I'm delighted with the way the season has gone.

Their official results spreadsheet, issued tonight, shows a profit of 137 points - sometimes a better price was available than they have shown on their results, my own profit has been 140.52 points @ £100 per point.

Getting on quick, and at the right price is the biggest challenge with EI. Missed one or two bets along the way, and losing my Bet365 account in August was a blow, as most of the bets were placed there until then.

They resume for the all weather on December 1st, and hopefully the winter campaign will be just as successful. No doubt getting the prices will be more difficult in the thinner all weather markets but I'll do the best I can.

Of my other racing services Tipping Legends and The Form Guru both found one winner among today's selections to end the day more or less level.

There were no account bets on any of SLH's lines, or for The Form Analyst, Maths, Punter Profits, or Isiris.

The one bet from Football Elite was a winner today, and three out of six for Winabobatoo resulted in a small profit.

Played on a few of the mentions in today's messages, but nothing doing.

Fantastic Freaky Friday !

Friday 16 October


As regular readers of the blog will know, I decided to stop following Tipping Legends racing tips at the end of August following a very disappointing run of results this year. However, as my subscription doesn't run out until the end of November I've still been the e-mails on a daily basis.

Major changes have been made to the service, and JC essentially steers the ship on his own now. The staking plan has also been tweaked and the number of bets given out has been reduced. A very profitable September for TL meant that I continued to keep a close eye on things. Another 10/1 winner yesterday, and I decided that I would have a dabble with the selections today.

Timing is everything as they say, and I certainly picked my moment to get involved again. The first bet, a three pointer on Parsons Legacy was a loser, but thereafter it was good news all the way. Bollin Judith won at 4/1 (advised at 11/2) and Final Victory was third at 11/2 having been advised each way at 10/1.

The 5.15 at Cheltenham was the key race for me today, indeed the biggest race of the year so far as it turned out.

JC advised a two point bet on Mister Apples and a one pointer on Gaora Lane, together with a half point straight forecast on the pair. They finished first and second in that order and I landed a 62/1 forecast.

The news gets better though - Isiris were on Gaora Lane each way, and SLH put up Gaora Lane and Runshan in the race on his exchange line.

Gambler that I am, I put Mister Apples, Gaora Lane and Runshan in £10 combination tricasts. A lap to go and they were 1/2/3, and as they continued on the final circuit the rest of the field gradually dropped off them and turning for home they only had to stand up for me to hit the jackpot. That they finished in the correct order for the other bets as well was just brilliant, and the tricast paid £533.37 to a £1 stake.

Everything else today is just incidental really, but got a couple of really good runs elsewhere. High Class Equine put up Fourth Generation each way at Redcar. The SP was 25/1 and he was beaten a short head having traded at 1.03 in running. The Form Analyst had one bet, Aimigayle advised each way at 16/1 - led over the final flight, but faded up the Cheltenham hill and was run out of the places to finish fourth, having traded odds on during the race.

The Form Guru had a second, third and fourth from his selections today, and SLH's exchange line had two seconds and a third.

Equine Investments, Punter Profits and SLH A/W gave out one unplaced selection each.

So an amazing day, totally out of the blue really and one that has seen me reach a new high for the year. It's probably bollocksed my Ladbrokes account as well, as I had £50 on both Bollin Judith and Mister Apples with them as well as the forecast and the tricasts, so I've taken over £7500 off them today !

Thursday catch up

Thursday 15 October


Another good day on Thursday thanks to Winsley Hill, given out by The Form Analyst at 10/1 and winning very well at an SP of 15/2.

The other winner yesterday was Magical Speedfit for The Form Guru at 8/1 to ensure another profitable day for that service despite no returns from the other six bets advised.

Maths Account bet finished second, SLH's all weather selection was fourth, and the Punter Profits tip was unplaced.

Couple of mentions from Equine Investments and Maths, but no winners among them.

Mixed Bag

Wednesday 14 October


Fair winning day again today with Punter Profits, Isiris and The Form Guru having good days again.

SLH put up two bets today. Rexmehead advised as a one point each way bet, and also as the first leg of a one point each way double. £400 lost when Rexmehead was unplaced, the second leg of the double Rathrockscourt won.

Better news on his exchange line with Marleybow an easy winner. No joy on the all weather front as Vita Mia was unplaced.

Royal Challenge was Maths account bet today, advised each way but unplaced and High Class Equine also came up empty handed with Monteray finishing fourth having been given each way.

The Form Guru found Hawaana (10/1 advised) at Lingfield and also gave the second in the same race Murrin. No further winners but Audemar was third and Seek The Fair Land fourth at Kempton tonight.

Isiris put up another short one with Le Commencement advised at even money. Got half the stake on with Ladbrokes, but had to put an order in on Betfair for the rest, and the price duly came back before the off and I was matched. Haven't seen the race but note that Le Commencement only won by 3/4 of a length and the runner-up traded 1.50 in running so there would have been some anxious moments had I been watching.

Quick mention about yesterday's abortive Isiris bets - would have been an insider bet (4pts) on Rio Lane at 9/4 which won, and a main account bet on Woodford Belle (8pts) which was unplaced - so no harm done.

Nice winner also for Punter Profits today with Classic Clover at 9/2.

No bets today from The Form Analyst, or from Equine Investments whose flat season will end this coming Saturday.

Finally, had my sleep disturbed last night when Tipping Legends Golf text arrived at 1am for some reason. Use my mobile as an alarm by the side of the bed so I wasn't too thrilled to be woken up. Decided to get up and put the bets on, which took a while as I didn't really have my wits about me. Anyway, all will be forgiven if the 20,000/1 double comes in !!!

Not so good

Tuesday 13 October


Nothing doing at all today with Puy D'Arnac being the closest to a return, beaten just over a length in third.

All other bets advised were unplaced.

Problems with the Isiris phone lines today meant that the message went on line late, finally managed to access it after about half a dozen attempts. KB had two proposed account bets but decided to cancel them as not everyone would have been able to pick up the message. Will find out tomorrow whether or not we missed out on anything.

Form Guru on fire

Monday 12 October


Great start to the week from The Form Guru, Victoria Sponge advised at 20/1 winning the Salisbury 3.45, just ten minutes after he had given out Efisio Princess and Hereford Boy who finished 1-2 at Kempton. Not far off three for the day with Omokoroa who finished second in Salisbury's season finale.

A winner and a place from Equine Investments with Dinner Date a winner at 9/2 (5/1 advised, but couldn't get it), and Kingswinford third at 8/1 (14/1 advised).

No joy for The Form Analyst as Drawnfromthepast finished fourth at Kempton, nearest finish having been held up towards the back when being up with the pace was the place to be.

Profit and Loss w/e 11/10/2009

Not a good week, but things ended on a positive note and looking forward to getting things heading in the right direction again.

The biggest setback of the week was missing the winning account bet from Isiris. Cost me at least £1000, and with missing winners last weekend when I was in Paris it's been a bad few days in that regard.

Not done too badly over this year though. It is inevitable that I will miss a winner from time to time, but I also missed a few losers when I was on holiday earlier this year so it all evens itself up. It's just a real pain to miss out on winners when things have been going as badly as they have so far this month.

The National Hunt really gets into gear next weekend with the first Cheltenham meeting of the season, and on the flat it's Champions' Day at Newmarket on Saturday.

The midweek football features the final round of World Cup qualifiers (yawn), but there'll be a full programme of league matches to get stuck into next weekend.

Best of luck for the week ahead.

Just one bet on the accounts today, with SLH advising Kyllachy Star each way at 9/1 on his all weather line.

As I always do with the all weather bets I backed it win only, which proved a good call today as it won at 15/2.

Played the Maths and SLH mentions today but no extras to add to the profits. Nothing doing with the golf this weekend either.

I'll be back later with the weekly P&L figures.

Relief

Saturday 10 October


Managed to snap the losing run today with a few good winners and a decent profit.

The Form Analyst finally translated his recent good form into a profitable day on the account thanks to Beat The Boys, a game 6/1 winner at Chepstow. Of the other two bets, Silly Wupple was very frustrating - cruised round most of the way but couldn't get the better of I'm Your Man, the outsider of the whole field, and went down by a neck. The final TFA bet Lysander finished in third.

Theola was a 7/2 winner for Equine Investments, while their other bet on the day was unplaced.

Just one shorty from Isiris today - Noble Alan at 4/6 and never an anxious moment all the way round as he won easily.

The Form Guru had ten bets today, among them Light From Mars, one of three given in the first at York - advised at 22/1 and won at half those odds. Among the other bets given today King's Destiny advised each way at 14/1 finished second, but yet again this week my place bet was unmatched pre-race. Hitchens and Zaaqya both finished third but were both advised win only.

No joy for Punter Profits or Mathematician today with two losers each and the SLH account bet was withdrawn about an hour before the race. Probably just as well for me as I'd missed the price again and wasn't on.

Winabob had a much quieter day today with only three bets, and as two of them won it was a profitable day.

Just one bet from Football Elite, don't suppose I'll back Liechtenstein to win a game very often but that was the advice today - came unstuck though as they lost 2-0.

Final action was from Equine's mentions, just two of them - Cill Rialaig which just held on at Ascot, and Embsay Crag an each way mention at York, who weaved his way through the field after a troubled run to finish third.
