Goodwood Day 4 (3.45)

King George Stakes  Out Do 1.5 points win (15/2 Bet365/PP) Move in Time 1 point win (13/2 general)  Moviestar 0.5 point win (13/2 general)    I think this race is between one of those 3 above, with Muthmir and Cotai Glory giving them most to do and Line of Reason may not be too far […]

Tip of the Day 30/07/15

No excuses yesterday, I was happy to go with the horse at the price but he didn’t run very well. I think that was a sign that 3yo only handicaps, and especially poor quality ones, are best left alone from now on. Moving on… Running Total (trial): 20 bets / 5 wins / 5 seconds […]

Tip of the Day 29/07/15

A decent day all round yesterday with the blog making nearly 15 points and the Tip of the Day adding another 4.5 points to the pot. On the Bridge won as I hoped he would if the market leaders failed and there were valid reasons to take them both on. If Scott can find another […]

Goodwood Day 1(2.00 + 4.20+ Johnston)

4.20 Goodwood Confessional 11/1 – 1 point EW (Paddy Power 4 places) 12/1 others, paying 3 places.  It says a lot about the quality and depth of this race that Top Boy, a horse who is 1/31 in handicaps, is 3rd in the market at 10/1!  Let’s start with the selection… Confessional doesn’t win very […]

Tip of the Day: 27/07/15

Everything appears to be going well at the moment…just make sure you remember these winners when the next barren run comes along, which it will, as it always does! 🙂  Running Total (trial): 17 bets / 4 wins / 5 seconds / +11.5 points  *** 7.00 Windsor Perfect Alchemy 9/1 (bet365, BV, Boylesports) 8/1 general […]

Tip of the Day: 31/07/15

A never nearer third yesterday, backed from 5/1 into 10/3 SP. It was a decent ride on the winner by a jockey who knows the horse has plenty of stamina and the selection never managed to get in a blow – possibly confirming that he would be best over shorter. I know a couple of […]

Goodwood Day 3: No Bets

Just a quick note to say there will be no selections from tomorrow at Goodwood. As you know 2yo, 3yo only and Group races are not ones I like to focus on and are not race types I like betting in. I know my strenghts and in general they are not in those race types! […]

Goodwood Day 2 (no bets)

A good first day with Mount Logan ensuring a 9.25 point profit. He won that in gritty fashion and needed every ounce of the extra stamina he has.  I don’t want to make excuses for Confessional but the ground was riding like Good come race time and he is best on softer, albeit he has […]

Tip of the Day: 28/07/15

I think if we all went to visit Windsor, Southwell and Newton Abbot this morning we would find that the three horses I mentioned yesterday were all still running! I hate not getting a run for my money and the main selections are either winning or coming second, or dropping out the back of the […]

Saturday 25/07/15 (3.15 +3.30)

    UPDATE A steady day with another 4.75 points to add to the pot on my maths. Tanzeel won that well, one of those, ‘why didn’t I bet two points to win’ performances 🙂 On another day I would have picked Balti Boys whom nearly won at 25s and as expected Heavens Guest ran […]
