Blog Results Update: +62 points

As always I like to keep on top of the ‘officially advised’ results for the blog. As you know I back everything I ‘officially advise’ (indicated by a staking amount) to £20 per point and I obviously want the blog to be profitable! I started ‘advising’ on the blog last November, picking the winner of the Hennessy Gold Cup. These results do not cover the Tip of The Day Trial. 

Since then it has been up and down with a few areas to improve on. My performance at the main festivals (Cheltenham/Aintree/Royal Ascot) has been abject at best this year. Although the Cheltenham posts had many winners, and I personally came out in profit, the official bets did not. Aintree was a shocker and even though I had a more limited approach to Royal Ascot it was still a 9 point loss. Clearly I need to get better during those weeks, although it is meant to be tough given it is the best racing of the year!  

Also, despite telling myself to have at least 1 point on all big race preview bets (esp the big field races), I haven’t. I/we have backed winners Oscar Time (33/1), Wayward Prince (33/1) and Rene Mathis (25/1) in that time. However I have only had 1/2 a point on the win side of the bet. With a bit more confidence there is another 40 points sitting there. Even 1/2 point EW + 1/2 point win would be better. Something for me to think about. It is hard picking winners at those prices and in those race types so you want to get properly paid on them. 

Given how competitive a lot of the races are and the prices I am playing at there will be long losing runs but so far, 9 months in, it is going ok and the profit levels are decent enough.

    • Cheers Bob…I am certainly more a profit over winners punter. Pleased that outside of Festivals it is a 20% or so win SR, if I could nudge that nearer to 25% that would be nice but at odds I play at on blog 20% more than enough for decent profits over the long term. Yep those big priced winners really make difference and they are hard to come by, but they do, in time.
