No blog until next monday…

Hello, Well Southwell was called off so that is 5.5 points that got away 🙂 With a few inspections around and an uninspiring card from Lingfield there will be no Pace selections tomorrow. I am also going away and will not be returning to the UK until Saturday evening. There will be no blogging during […]

Licking The Wounds: Blog Update +40.85 points

Well that was a disappointing festive period for the blog. The Welsh National stood up again as a great trends race with the 1st and 2nd both in the trends shortlist of 7. Of course I picked the wrong ones. If I had known it was an absolute bog, as opposed to yesterday’s Soft ground, would […]

Pace Wins The Race: NO BET 22/12/14

Tomorrow’s racing is a case of the famine before the feast. It really is dire and there is nothing I could confidently select so it is best to keep the points in the bank for another day. The one that I did look at was L’inganno Felice in the 16.40. When I went onto Oddschecker […]

Pace Win The Race: Selection 19/12/14

Re Cap Well my worst fears about Dr Red Eye came true but at least we got 11/1 about a 7/1 shot and while that is no comfort to the wallet it is the way to win long term. I think he was worth the risk and wont be backing him again for a while. […]

Pace Wins The Race: 29/12/14

1.30 Southwell Cascadia 5/1 (bet365) 11/2 (PP) – 1 point win Normally I struggle to get a grip on the form in large field, low grade, all-weather handicaps but given most of the horses in this race dont have any it has made my job easier. Cascadia is a consistent front runner, has won at […]

Bets for 27/12/14

Re Cap 26/12/14 Well no hiding here, not even getting the Winner of the King George could save the day, although it helped and gave us something to cheer. If getting 3s on Conti you would have lost 2 points if following advised stakes. I wont discuss Presented, Galway Jack or Withy Mills as they […]

Boxing Day Bonanza

UPDATE Well no hiding here, not even getting the Winner of the King George could save the day, although it helped. If getting 3s on Conti you would have lost 2 points if following below. I wont discuss Presented, Galway Jack or Withy Mills as they were all poor. Kudu Shine was a decent bet, […]

Saturday Race Previews + Tips

  UPDATE  Well a profitable day for the blog. If you were betting £10 a point, thanks to Kilcooley’s romp, you would have made £67.5. 6.75 points is decent enough on a competitive Saturday and i am glad I could find one winner. Bold Sir Brian looked to be running a massive race and then […]

Pace Wins The Race: Selection18/12/14

Re cap Arkaim ran a decent race, and much like Harris the day before I have no complaints. The one ‘could be anything but needed to prove it on the course, horse’ bolted up and was backed to do so. I am adamant that unless you follow the Venetia Williams yard systematically, or were close […]
