Start again tomorrow !

Monday 30 November


A small loss to end the month and I'm happy to draw a veil over November with the final loss totalling just under £10,000.

It was to be expected really after the great run I've had through most of the year, but it's a sharp reminder of how precarious this business can be.

Anyway start of a new month tomorrow, it's Tuesday which has been good news for me and Equine Investments are back for their all weather season. Getting on will be a challenge (!) and it will be interesting to see how the markets react - I think I already know the answer to that one. Betfair will be down until at least 11am tomorrow also.

The most noteworthy event of the day was a winner for Isiris, with Enroblim Trop getting the job done at 11/4. It's a long road back from where I am with this service, but got to start somewhere.

Tipping Legends had one bet with Zuwaar, beaten into 4th place, although less than half a length behind the winner.

The Punter Profits selection I Have Dreamed was beaten into second by the odds on favourite Working Title, and SLH advised a lay of Den Of Iniquity on his exchange line but the horse won. Maths gave Den Of Iniquity as his mention of the day but I didn't back it !

Another loser for Pricewise Extra with Low Delta. The price had already gone by the time I got to check to see what had been given out, but it drifted back out pre-race and my order on Betfair was matched.

Profit and Loss w/e 29/11/2009

So another losing week, and with just one day to go this month it's going to be the worst month I've had in two years - but only the second losing month this year so it was due I guess.

Just three weeks left for me this year now before I have a break prior to going full time next year. It would be good to finish the year off on a high, but there's no way of knowing what will happen. A £50,000 profit would be fantastic - and I'm £4000 off that now after a lousy November, but I'm well pleased with this year regardless of how the next few weeks go.

Tough Weekend

Two more losing days this weekend to confirm this month will be the worst I've had in the two years I've been writing this blog.


Saturday 28 November

The racing looked like being a complete disaster on Saturday, until Beat The Boys won the Rehearsal Chase at Newcastle. Couldn't get the 20/1 advised by Tipping Legends, but managed 16/1 which beat the SP by a couple of points.

Despite winning over £2000 on that race, I still lost over £1400 on the racing on Saturday - which was what Isiris lost on the day. KB said he was going to "force a change of luck" - which worked a treat ! Quite why he felt the need to go for it in that way god only knows but 28 points lost in a couple of hours was a joke really, and means 145 points gone in the last six weeks, nearly half the advised bank for this service. See what he tries next week !

As I mentioned it was another very profitable day for Tipping Legends thanks to Beat The Boys, also collected the each way part of the bet on Fistral Beach which finished second for the sixth time in seven races, but Pasco was beaten despite trading 1.09 in running.

No winners for The Form Guru, altough Pop (advised each way at 20/1) finished fourth and Frontier Dancer was second at 9/1, although he couldn't get anything out of the Hennessy despite having five tries at it !

Had nearly half of the Hennessy field running for me, but none of them were a match for Denman who was a brilliant winner and has set things for a wonderful race at Cheltenham next March.

One winner out of two from Punter Profits - but the price on Quantatative Easing was too short for me to get involved.

Only backed one of the two Pricewise Extra selections as the 7/1 on Parsons Pistol had a best priced 9/2 within a minute of the tips going up on the Racing Post site. Of course it won (at 7/2) and the other one got beat, as did the two Maths mentions which both finished second.

Aside from the racing on Saturday, the football pretty much showed how things have been going lately. With half an hour to go all four of Winabob's selections were in front.

However things rapidly went downhill. I was on Barnsley at 2/1 and they were 4-1 up against Plymouth after 58 minutes when the referee in his wisdom decided to abandon the game as he felt the pitch had become unplayable. Just what I needed, £400 gone just like that and things fell apart in the other games as well, including an injury time equaliser foe Scunthorpe, so I ended up with one even money winner and a loss on the day.

Football Elite once again showed a profit with two out of four winners, including Sporting Gijon at over 2/1.

Sunday 29 November


Couple of winners on Sunday with Open De L'Isle for The Form Guru and Alvarado for Punter Profits. Alvarado was odds-on but I'll back any of these that are 4/5 or bigger, and I got 1.95 on Betfair for half of it, and the rest at the SP of 5/6.

SLH put up Daring Origyn at Leicester, each way against the odds on favourite and only 15 minutes before race time. Got less than half the bet on at the advised minimum of 6/1, and with the horse shortening up to an SP of 3/1 that was as much as I got. No real harm done as the horse finished second to the favourite.

SLH also had a bet on his exchange line, and I didn't get this one either. A one point lay of Constantius at a maximum price of 3.25 - there was less than £100 in front of me when I put my lay in but I never got a match and it drifted out all afternoon - before finishing fourth in the race at an SP of 4/1.

Maths mention turned out to be the Pricewise Extra selection, but Dune Raider could only finish fourth.

Was hopeful of a payout on the golf today, Ryo Ishikawa was joint leader going in to the final round of the Casio World Open, but it wasn't to be and he finished second by three shots - having been advised win only at 8/1. Australia finished sixth in the World Cup of Golf. Football Elite had one bet today, but Parma could only draw 1-1 with Napoli.

Big Weekend coming up

Friday 27 November


Another losing day with only two winners amongst the 16 bets I had.

A profitable day again for Tipping Legends who are really firing at the moment. Short priced today and had to take less than the advised 2/1 on most of my bet, but still got well over the SP of 6/4.

The only other winner came from The Form Guru, with High Stand Lad winning at 7/2 having been advised early at 8/1 - which I managed to get most of, topping up the rest on Betfair.

Otherwise, it was a disappointing day again.

Maths account bet involved two horses in the Lingfield 3.35 - but Abiltiy N Delivery could only manage second place and Silver Prelude was out of the frame.

Henry King was SLH's tip today, against the odds on favourite Bellvano, but he pulled way too hard in the race. Was still in contention but looked beaten when taking a horrible fall at the second last - it was a relief to see him get up OK afterwards.

After a good start to the week, things have take a major turn for the worse for Punter Profits in the last couple of days with three more unplaced today.

Only other bet today was the Pricewise Extra selection billsgrey in the first at Musselburgh, but never looked like getting involved at any stage.

So behind on the week again, and over £8000 down this month so it would be good to make a bit of a dent in that this weekend.

Almost certain I'll be having my first losing month since February, but with plenty of football bets already placed, as well as three horses in the Hennessy tomorrow hopefully it will be a good weekend.

There'll be no update tomorrow night as I'm out and about so the next post will be on Sunday evening.

Best of luck for the weekend.

Bloody Hellfire !

Thursday 26 November


You just know sometimes when it's not going to be your day.

Hellfire Club was selected by both Maths and Punter Profits, only needed to jump the last to win - he jumped it, the ATR picture went blank and when it came back a second later my horse was on the floor !

That was one of seven losers for Punter Profits today, all of which were unplaced. Not helped by having three selections in the 3.15 at Newbury.

Maths other bet today was a winner, but given the price of 10/11 a small loss on the day.

SLH had a good winner on his Exchange line today, Golden Globe advised at 4.6 with a saver on Hard And Fast, and it was the main selection which came good and produced a profit of £600 on the race.

Lyras Daemon was another loser for the All Weather line, unplaced at Kempton tonight.

Isiris is going from bad to worse at the moment, with today's selection Another Display - an each way bet in a 7 horse race - unseating Tom Scudamore at the fifth fence. Thinking long term and all that, but to lose 117 points in six weeks (73 in the last 18 days)is as bad as I can remember on this service. Even worse for those like me who couldn't get anything on Karmadice on Tuesday.

It was only Exmoor Ranger who saved the day from total meltdown.

Put up by both Tipping Legends and The Form Guru and given a canny ride by his jockey, the horse came to challenge at the last and won going away. But despite winning the best part of £2000 on this horse, it was still a losing day.

Just one winner on the horses today with My Friend Sandy for The Form Guru. The advised price of 10/1 with Sportingbet wasn't there, so I had £50 on Betfair at 10. TFG had two in the race, the other selection Magnifico finished second.

Otherwise it was a pretty poor day. Isiris played in the Chepstow 3.25 going with Mr Prickle and Massini Sunset against the favourite Magot De Grugy. However the favourite prevailed with my two filling the next two places - in fact these were the only three who got round. So another losing day for Isiris and the recent bad run goes on.

One bet from SLH on his mainline with Upham Atom a speculative one point bet at a minimum of 10/1. Showed up for a while before fading out of the picture in the home straight.

Highly Regal was another loser for the SLH A/W line.

Just one for Tipping legends as well, with Cerito unplaced on the all weather at Kempton.

One out of two for Winabob tonight with Fulham beating Blackburn, but Everton crashed and burned at Hull, 3-0 down after half an hour before losing 3-2.

Nothing doing either with the Pricewise Extra bet which came second, and Maths mention was also a loser.

Tuesday so a good day !

Tuesday 24 November


Don't know what it is about Tuesday but it's been by far the best day of the week for me this year with nearly half my profits being made on Tuesdays.

Cracking day for Tipping Legends with three bets producing a 7/1 winner, a 6/1 winner and the third selection was beaten by just a head. First Swallow drifted out to an SP of 17/2 and I got BOG on just over half my bets.

A winner for The Form Guru with Fine Parchment at 11/2 as well as an each way second at 16/1 and also places at 11/1, 17/2 and 8/1 which were advised as win only.

Punter Profits were on Dusk again today on two of their systems but the horse was unable to follow up yesterday's win and was eventually pulled up. SLH advised a 2pt place lay on Dusk at a maxiumum price of 2.0 but it never traded at the price pre-race and so doesn't count.

The SLH all weather bet finished well down the field after an ominous pre-race drift.

An old problem with Isiris today. Karmadice was advised each way at 18/1 on the betting shows against the 4/6 favourite Knockavilla. I struggled to get these bets on two years ago so I had no chance today with the bookies. Working on a laptop with a mobile connection didn't help either - down to 16/1 by the time the race loaded on screen, cut to 14/1 when I submitted my bet, which was refused and then cut to 12/1, and then to 10/1 before I could try again at which point I gave up. I'll have to find a different way to play these as there's no way I can get on - just have to trade them for risk-free bets on Betfair I guess and see how I get on. Karmadice finished third and the favourite was turned over.

Unfortunately I did manage to get on the other Isiris bet today and of course that one lost.

One out of three tonight for Winabob, with a late Exeter goal denying Millwall and turning the night into a losing one.

The Maths mention won today, but I never had time to look at Pricewise Extra so don't know what it was or how it got on.

Punter Profits saves the day

Monday 23 November


Looked like being another tough day until the last couple of races where Punter Profits had two selections which both qualified as bets under two of their systems.

Both Calzaghe and Dusk won for me and Newcastle winning tonight for Winabob ensured a fair start to the week.

Two selections from SLH on his mainline, Solway Minstrel advised each way finished fourth and Le Burf was beaten a neck into second place.

Just one selection for Tipping Legends - Ballinderry Park was pulled up.

KB's period of introspection didn't last too long, as expected really, but Amber Brook could only manage second place behind Whiteoak.

The Birdie Golf selection for the LPGA championship was also a loser today.

Profit and Loss w/e 22/11/2009

A losing week despite making a profit of nearly £5000 on Tuesday. However I had a worse second half than Wigan did today.

I've lost The Form Analyst from my portfolio and from what KB said on the Isiris line today, he's doing a bit of naval gazing as to whether he will continue from here.

He's planning a few days off to take stock of the situation - whether it's just a bad run or whether he's "lost it". I'm sure he'll be back though !

A loss of £2,667 drops me back below the £50,000 mark for the year and it's beginning to look as if November will be my first losing month since February. As you've seen a lot can happen in a short time, but I'm currently £7555 down this month with just over a week to go.

Highlight of next weeks racing is Newbury's Hennessy meeting, but there's plenty of action during the week as usual.

Football wise there's a couple of Premier League matches in midweek as well as full programmes in League One and Two and the Blue Square Premier, but the FA Cup second round means no matches in the lower two divisions at the weekend.

Best of luck with your bets next week.

Sorry end to the week

Sunday 22 November


Just one winning tip from my potfolio on Sunday, with Football Elite going for Stoke to beat Portsmouth. Even then I didn't win much as Winabob had gone for Portsmouth !

Nothing from any of the racing services, SLH put two horses up on his exchange line in the Aintree 2.20 but they could only manage second and third and none of the other selections placed. The Paul Jones ante-post pick for the Becher Chase didn't even run so £200 wasted on that one.

No joy in the golf either - although the LPGA event has only completed one round so far due to adverse weather conditions and is now a 54 hole tournament due to complete on Monday.

The Form Analyst

Got an e-mail last night confirming that The Form Analyst has closed his service with immediate effect.

Despite making over 100 points profit since the service was established in October last year, this losing run over the last four months has proved to be too much to overcome.

I can't say I'm too surprised as it's clearly been getting to him lately, but it is a shame as Graeme has put a hell of a lot of work into this over the last year or so.

Someone commented on here a week ago saying I should stop following TFA, but after making 140 points between April and July I was hoping that he would be able to turn things - and if he didn't then we'd reach the point where we are now.

Despite the recent run, I am still nicely in front from following the TFA bets since they started - would have been even better if I'd followed the prescribed staking plan !

I don't suppose many profitable services close down, but I can't argue with his decision and just wish him well for the future.

Should have stuck to the football !

Saturday 21 November


*** edited Sunday 5pm (correction to TFG result - Pause And Claws placed, 4 places paid) ***

Another shocking day on the horses with over three grand dropped this afternoon, with only The Form Guru showing a profit.

Nightmare day for both Isiris and The Form Analyst, and with Tipping Legends dropping 10 points, it was much the same story as last Saturday as I lost over £3000 in three hours.

Fortunately Winabob had their best day of the season so far with all four selections winning, and Football Elite getting two out of three - including a 97th penalty for Deportivo La Coruna.

Should be a quieter day tomorrow, hopefully a winning one.

Got a few e-mails and comments to reply to which I'll deal with tomorrow as I'm a bit short of time tonight.

Always keen to discuss the services I use, the staking plan, getting on or any aspect of what I'm doing.

However, I won't be publishing or replying to some of the moronic comments which have started appearing over the last week or so such as this one which has just arrived...

" **** is a f*cking dick head. Don't use him. What a ******* twat. He has no idea of selectivity or discipline. People like that should get another profession. F*cking freak. "

Not interested in people like you or in anything you have to say. If you want to keep wasting your time sending them that's up to you - but they won't be appearing on here.

Not feeling Two Grand

Friday 20 November


Another big loss today with only one winner from 19 tips, on top of which the Pricewise Extra and Maths mentions all lost as well.

Getting used to the wild swings, which are inevitable given the amount of bets and the stakes I'm placing. As long as the overall trend continues in an upward direction I'm not too concerned with what each day might bring.

Saying that I'm £300 below where I was when I had the big golf win on Ryan Moore, which was three months ago now, and also £5000 off the peak I hit earlier this month so it would be good to string four or five good winning days together.

Anyway today just the one winner as I said - Pavillon Bleu at 7/1 for The Form Guru, which in fact was the only return today.

Four out of four losers Tipping Legends shipping eight points, the long losing run for The Form Analyst goes on - today's tipped backed from 20/1 into 8/1 but ran like a 100/1 shot.

Song Sung Blue was a loser for both Punter Profits and the SLH Exchange line, and these two were on the same horse later in the afternoon. PP backed Mutual Friend, while SLH advised a place lay of the horse. SLH was proved correct, unfortunately the advised maximum lay price had already gone by the time I looked and it drifted all afternoon so I didn't get on.

Final one for Punter Profits was Dontpaytheferryman - a recent winner for the service, but could only manage third today, and a double blow as it was advised on two systems.

Expect it will be a big weekend for me assuming everything goes ahead. Already laid out £2000 on football bets for the next couple of days and the racing will be as busy as ever.

Best wishes for a profitable weekend.

Got there in the end

Thursday 19 November


Well into the afternoon and it was shaping up to be another losing day - indeed I was struggled to get any of horses to get round.

Things changed though with the Hereford 2.50, where Fortification was a selection for two of the Punter Profits systems. The horse took the lead around halfway and under forceful ride from his amateur rider stayed on strongly to win by three lengths to ensure it would be a profitable day.

Punter Profits were also responsible for today's other winner - Canni Thinkaar, who all but fell at the first, and the in-running players at the track or with fast pictures pushed him right out to 99/1. His jockey Jamie Moore somehow managed to sit tight, and again when he blundered at the second last, to land the odds by half a length from the Pricewise Extra selection Mistree To No One.

One more today from Punter Profits, was Wizard Of Odds didn't want to go down to the start, didn't want to line up, pulled his jockey's arms out when the race did get underway, but did eventually settle before finding just one too good.

SLH advised laying Vico on his exchange line, and Triggerman did the business for me beating Vico by a length, the pair well clear.

Seven losers from The Form Guru from seven selections, four of which failed to complete the course, and Tipping Legends just had one today - Baseball Ted, who was in the lead when Richard Johnson pulled him up and dismounted after jumping the water because he wasn't happy with how he was travelling.

Maths gave two horses a mention today, and Penzena was a winner at 4/1.

Lot of rain around again tonight, but hopefully tomorrow's cards will be on.

All or nothing - today nothing !

Wednesday 18 November


Nothing like steady and consistent profits, and that's me at the moment - nothing like steady and consistent !

Last seven days have been as up and down as I can ever remember, but overall things have hardly moved at all, I'm £104 worse off that I was this time last week.

One winner advised today - the only Punter Profits system bet - Calzaghe ,but as it was 4/6 this morning I didn't touch it, and it won at that price.

Elsewhere the tone was set at an early stage with the Market Rasen 1.40 a key race for me. SLH advised laying Synchronised and in the same race Isiris had a split stake bet on the only two others in the race really, Bluegun and Victorias Groom. As it turned out, the worst possible result for me with Synchronised winning, despite jumping poorly early on, from the two Isiris horses.

SLH had one bet today - Legends Lass at Market Rasen, finished a well beaten second at 3/1.

Nothing doing today from The Form Guru - the only return was from Djalabad which finished third at 14/1.

One of his losers was Hockenheim, who was also a selection for Tipping Legends - finished second at 4/1 and another £400 went there.

SLH's all weather bet Alfresco, also another TFG tip, was well beaten.

Two from the Form Analyst at Kempton tonight - Confuchias finishing third and Fault unplaced.

Nothing from Pricewise Extra or from the horses Maths mentioned today.

See what happens tomorrow - anything could happen !!

Another mad day !

Tuesday 17 November


Superb day today with six winners and a huge profit.

JC has been on fire since I resumed with Tipping Legends a month ago and, after a near miss yesterday, he was back with two more winners today - Elusive Flame at 8/1 and Punching at 4/1, both at Southwell.

SLH has returned to form on his mainline and four of his last seven have now gone in after Portrait Royal won today. Managed to get 4/1 about the selection, returned at an SP of 11/4.

The all weather bet, Clear Sailing, finished second.

Day off for The Form Guru yesterday, but he was back in business today with two winners - Shadows Lengthen at an advised price of 12/1, and he was also on Punching.

One bet from Punter Profits and they were on to a winner as well with Dusk at Fakenham. Got £100 on early on Betfair at 3.66, then did another £100 at 4.05 half an hour before the race. Checked the market two minutes before the off and it was trading bigger than 9/2. Had another £100 on at 5.75, with the intention of laying it back in-running to get a better average price. All worked out OK and I averaged just under 4/1 after commission.

Never had time to look at Pricewise Extra today, so no idea what it was or whether it won.

Patriotic Fervour - nearly !

Monday 16 November


Poor start to the week with over £1000 lost, and no winners.


Tipping Legends came closest, with Baltimore Patriot a two point win bet advised a 11/1 (I managed 10s) coming off second best to K'Gari in the 4.30 at Wolves. Listened to the commentary at work and it sounded as though my horse was coming through to win, but the K'Gari found more close home for an all the way win. Checked tonight and the second traded as low as 1.08 in running.

That meant a blank day for me as the other Tipping Legends selections were unplaced, SLH's all weather bet came second and Maths mention was down the field as well.

Isiris had two bets today, as usual being at work I couldn't get on initially, but Coach Lane didn't really shorten much below the advised price of 8/1 and then drifted out to an SP of 10/1 before finishing unplaced.

The other bet advised was Den Of Iniquity and KB sounded very confident on this one. Price had already gone on Betfair by the time I checked and it kept on shortening - down to 4/1 on the off and I had to let it run without my money. For a change I wasn't left cursing after the race as Den Of Iniquity could only manage 4th of the 5 runners and so I saved myself £400.

Didn't get on the Pricewise Extra selection and that lost as well.

ROI + Graph


Profit and Loss w/e 15/11/2009

Not a lot to add to what I've already posted on the daily round ups this week.

A £1165 profit on the week is more than satisfactory and it certainly feels like I've earned it.

Looking ahead, as always the racing gets better as the week goes on - the Peterborough Chase has been moved back to it's midweek slot at Huntingdon (on Thursday) and meetings at Ascot, Haydock and Aintree are the weekend highlights.

Should be a full programme of football next weekend after this tedious round of International matches this week.

As always plenty of opportunities, and I'll be doing my best to try and take advantage.

Have a good week !

Madness !

Sunday 15 November


As I mentioned earlier in response to a recent comment, one of the reasons that I write this blog every night is to try and maintain a sense of perspective and detachment from the numbers I'm posting everyday.

The last couple of days though have been something else - even after doing this for more than two years now, to lose £4000 in just over three hours like I did yesterday had my head spinning a bit. Now here I am 24 hours later and I've won most of it back - crazy !

So obviously a very good day today, and was in profit as soon as I woke up this morning as Scott Strange finished tied 9th to land my bet on him to finish in the top 10. First time RG has used that particular bet so it was pleasing to see it come up and ensure a profitable week on the golf.

Punter Profits had three today, but Master Minded was too short to be a bet for me and so I passed. However both of the others won - backed Bureaucrat at 5/4, which drifted out to 11/4 before winning, and Dontpaytheferryman was a nice winner at 4/1 early (SP 3/1).

SLH advised a lay of Bureaucrat which cost me some of the profit on the PP bet, but I got my lay in at 2.96 which was good, but he also advised a back of Well Chief and New Mill against Master Minded so a profitable day on the exchange line.

Tipping Legends found Kyber Kim at Cheltenham, couldn't get the 14/1 advised but comfortably beat the SP of 9/1. However the big bet of the day, Mahonia, came unstuck. Travelled well as they tend to do for Ruby, but nothing there when asked. The other TL bet was a 2pt treble on Tataniano, Master Minded and Reve de Sivola. Combined odds of 5/1 if all three had won, but always a bit annoying when a bet like that goes astray. Still it's been another very good week for JC.

No joy for Paul Jones in the Greatwood Hurdle with Ronaldo Des Mottes finishing well down the field, and Isiris advised an insider bet on Quentin Collonges at 16/1 which was unplaced - an early blunder didn't help his chance.

Just one bet from TFG - a four point bet on Lidar, advised at 7/4 but 6/4 was the biggest price I could see and that wasn't available to me. Lidar finished second at an SP of 11/10.

Tom Segal was in the chair for Pricewise Extra and he advised Lucky At Last at 12/1 at Cork. Couldn't get on to the PW page on the Racing Post site for a minute or so which was enough for the price to be cut to 8/1 which was the price I got. Won nicely at 6/1. Maths had one mention, Berties Dream each way - third at 9/1.

Wicked Daze !

Saturday 14 November


I'd already typed out tonight's blog entry and how this had been the worst day I've ever had with 24/24 losers on the horses (26 if you include Pricewise Extra and Maths mention).

However that was before the 8.50 at Wolves. Tipping Legends had advised a two point win bet on Wicked Daze at 8/1. The horse won the race by a short head and so I was feeling pretty relieved at that point. Then a stewards enquiry was called - and unbelievably they chucked Wicked Daze out.

I was absolutely fuming, until someone reminded me that most bookmakers these days pay out on horses who are disqualified. Thankfully I got everything on with the bookies and didn't use Betfair so after what had been a truly terrible day I'm actually feeling pretty good. It was a shocking decision though.

Knew it was going to be a tough day when I found myself £600 down after ten minutes when SLH's exchange pick was beaten into second place and the Isiris each way double was busted by Leulahleulahlay who drifted from 7/4 to 3/1 on-course and then ran a truly shocking race, never jumped a hurdle and was beaten after half a mile.

The Form Analyst has tweaked his staking plan in order to give more flexibility to putting bets on the accounts, but no immediate pay-off with five losers and seven points lost.

Six losers from The Form Guru two thirds, two fourths and According To Pete missed the places by one in the Paddy Power.

Torrid run for Punter Profits continues with double system bet Barizan beaten into second, Poquelin second at 12/1 although never in with a chance, and Maljimar unplaced.

No joy so far for Paul Jones' midweek ante-post service with both Northern Alliance and Tartak out of the money.

Tipping Legends had three other bets on the day, with Hello Bud collecting the place money but the big bet on Chapoturgeon came unstuck when he hit the deck.

Two out of four from Winabob and a half point profit on the week - wooohoooo !!! thanks to a 90th minute goal from Rotherham.

Pricewise Extra and Maths mention both finished out with the washing, and I had £100 on the football which lost.

I was so far down going into the evening session, over £4000 down, that I decided to have a £100 double on the two remaining bets - if they both won I couldn't get out so decided to go for the jackpot - after all what was another £100 today. Grudge was collared in the last 25 yards in the 6.20 and I knew the game was up for the day. However as it turned out I was a neck away from hitting the jackpot with an 80/1 double !

Late winner but a bad day

Friday 13 November


Looked like being a truly awful day until Nacho Libre went in at 9/1 at Wolverhampton tonight for SLH's all weather team. Even so I still lost £1400 on the day - that's how bad it was until then.

Stormy night ahead tonight, hopefully Cheltenham will still be standing when we wake up tomorrow !

Colemanballs

Thursday 12 November


Nakoma winning at 8/1 ensured I got out on the day with a minimal loss, which I was more than happy to take.

Mentioned yesterday that Punter Profits had hit a bit of a losing spell lately. However it looked like their luck was going to change today. Mughayer, eventually backed into odds on favouritism never looked as though it would win throughout the race until it finally managed to get the better of Exulto on the run-in. However the 66/1 outsider Disco Jack conjured up a late run and would have won in another couple of strides, the winning margin was just a head.

The other selection, Cartier Opera, looked set to be a lucky winner of the 2.10 at Taunton, as Al Qanoon crashed out at the third last when going clear. This left Cartier Opera in the lead and the horse was 10 lengths clear coming to the last and only had to jump it to win. However jockey Aidan Coleman had other ideas, and managed to get himself unseated ! A few burnt fingers on Betfair with three horses beaten at 1.40 or less in the race, Cartier Opera done at 1.03.


Nakoma was a winner for SLH's all weather line but the other one he put on there today, Flores Sea, was beaten by his 50/1 stablemate Ingleby Princess !

The Form Guru came up empty handed, with two second places - although the place return on Wandering Minstrel was savaged by a 40p rule 4.

Tipping Legends only bet today Loose Caboose was never sighted - getting reminders after a furlong !

The Pricewise Extra selection and Maths mention were both unplaced and I threw away another £50 by incorrectly staking the TFG bet on Petrus De Sormain - 0.5 pts e/w was the stake, but I did it £50 e/w by mistake.

In a good rhythm !

Wednesday 11 November


Another big winner for Tipping Legends, with That's Rhythm advised at 8/1 and eventually winning at that price.

The other TL selection, a strong each way bet on Bonnie Prince Blue showed a small profit as the horse finished third.

A successful lay from SLH on his exchange line was cancelled out by a loser on the all weather line, while Punter Profits have hit a losing run since I increased my stakes a couple of weeks ago, and three more losers today - two of which finished second.

Another profitable day for TFG who was also on That's Rhythm, but that was his only winner from seven bets.

Top day again

Tuesday 10 November


Couple of winners from TFG and one bet, one winner from Tipping Legends meant another very profitable day.

As usual it was a pain in the arse trying to get on while being stuck at work, and it looks as though I might as well close my Ladbrokes credit account.

The Form Analyst put up two today - Paganstar Princess advised each way at 8/1. Managed £20 each way on the net and phoned Ladbrokes up. Asked for £50 e/w and after putting me on hold for a couple of minutes their trading department kindly offered a tenner each way.

The other TFA bet was Hey Big Spender at Exeter - 14/1 against an odds-on shot always presents problems getting on and today was no different. Managed to get 50 e/w with Hills by putting it in an each way double with Copper Bleu @ 4/5. Then tried on my phone with Ladbrokes on the net, who wouldn't let me have anything so rang them up. Asked for £25 e/w @ 12/1 and offered £10 to win.

The lad on the other end of the phone seemed surprised when I said no bet. First time I've used the account for about three months, probably be the last. Managed to get it all on eventually by splitting the bet up six ways, worth it in the end with the horse coming second to the odds-on fav.

Vinmix De Bessy was the Tipping Legends selection, advised at 11/2 which I couldn't get. Got £50 on with Lads this time at 5/1 and their BOG paid out at the SP of 6/1. The other £150 was done on BF at just less than 5/1 after commission.

Got the TFG message late so all the bets were done on Betfair, and two winners with Echo Point and Fighting Chance. Beat the SP on both, although got less than the advised prices - whether they were available I don't know.
