Here's a note regarding the new services I'm trialling with a view to freshening up the portfolio over the next few weeks.
I'll add links to each of these in the "Services I Use" list to the right.
Betting Laying Sports Club / Football Laying Club
I'll be betting all of these to £20 per point and will record the results on the blog each night.
It's unlikely I'd be able to go with them all long term - but with a bit of luck I'll find a couple of worthwhile additions which will serve me well for the rest of this year.
Now for the results for the last couple of days, and it was a flying start for Nagman who found the winner of the Irish National with Bluesea Cracker advised at 33/1.
I've since found out that Packed Pockets gave it out as well, but I only started following their tips today !
Formbet also sent out a preview of the Irish National in an e-mail last week highlighting the trends for the race - where Bluesea Cracker came out top, but I never got round to reading it until last night, and it wasn't sent out as a staked bet so never saw it.
Tipping Legends, The Form Guru and Paul Jones all concentrated their efforts on the Irish National as well, but none of them hit the frame.
A win treble for BLSC on the football on Monday covered most of the stakes on three other losing bets. I didn't follow the advised lay of Coventry at 6.0 - 6.6 which won.
Finally for Monday, Fryboy had a couple at Redcar. Born To Perform only finished second after arriving there on the bit 2f out (traded 1.1), and Young Gladiator finished fourth.
Today, Staff Sergeant was a winner for Packed Pockets - advised at a morning price of 4/1, eventually drifted to an SP of 7/1, but unfortunately for me only £10 of my bet was done with BOG.
King Fontaine was the only other winner of the day, for BLSC, who also had Megalo Maniac in the first at Southwell (also tipped by Fryboy). The horse finished second at 6/1. I wasn't around to watch the race and it was only when checking later that I found out it had traded at 1.01 on Betfair - my second 1.01 loser in a week !
Apart from the two winners there wasn't too much else to enthuse over but it's been a promising start for the newcomers who have provided all the winners so far this week.
As I mentoned the other night I'm off to Aintree for the three days of the Grand National meeting. The next blog update will be on Sunday evening - there'll be plenty to catch up on, hopefull there'll be some good news to report !
Best of luck for the rest of the week.
