Some More Micro Angles

While researching today’s Tip of The Day and the success of Saeed Bin Suroor at Kempton with ‘All-Weather Switchers’ as I will call them, (horses running on the AW having ran on turf LTO) I thought it would be wise to see if I could find any others. So, we are looking at All-Weather handicaps […]

Tip of the Day: 11/08/15

6.30 Ffos Las  Dutch Falcon 1 point win 11/1 (WH) 10/1 (Bet365/PP/Tote S/Coral/Betfair S/Ladbrookes) *** 7.00 Ffos Las  Unison 1 point win 7/1 (BV/Lad/WH/Tote S/StanJames)   *** 6.30 Ffos Las… I am taking a risk here as an ‘old friend’ Clement runs here – the horse who should maybe have won at Lingfield for the […]

Saturday 08/08/15 (inc Tip of Day)

  TIP OF THE DAY… Clement should probably have won yesterday but in a game of fine margins he just lost out in a close third, finishing with plenty of running left in him. Yes he blew the start, but he does that every now and then and I knew that before betting. I dont […]

Tip of the Day: 06/08/15

First things first , there is NO tip today. There is a lot of racing today but so much of it is dross I couldn’t confidently find anything to back at a price i was happy with. With Sligo off yesterday there was no damage done.  Chris Wall had two winners yesterday to get the […]

Tip of the Day 04/08/15 + Race Preview

After much head scratching I am hoping that Ralph Beckett has a good day as we are going with two of his. I have also had a look at the 7.35 Ripon and that will be a ‘race preview’ with the results recorded as such.  First up, Tip of The Day… 4.30 Salisbury  Syrdarya 6/1 […]

Tip of the Day 12/08/15

My mini drought continues, taking tip of the day’s losing run to 9 I believe. Both horses were well backed, the first one in particular, 9.5/1 (after R4) into 3/1. He was overpriced at a morning show of 11/1 and long term that approach pays, albeit they both didn’t run very well. There were 2 […]

Tip of the Day: 10/08/15

Hello, I hope you had a great weekend. There is NO tip today, as I was struggling to be confident on anything.  *** August Trainer  Chris Wall runs Silvala Dancer in 5.50 Wind. He is 5/2 in this C6 Apprentice Handicap and look like he will give the hat trick bid a good go. There […]

Tip of the Day: 07/08/15

Hmmm. I could well be accused of bottling it yesterday with Jan De Heem who ran out an easy enough winner, and was widely available at 3/1 at the time of posting, after the R4. It is easy when they win but maybe 3s was ok with hindsight and I know I was confident that […]

Tip of the Day: 05/08/15

Yesterday was a disaster on many fronts, not least for this blog. I have had worse days and we only ‘loaned’ 3.5 points back to the bookies but it was quite poor all round. The two Beckett horses drifted, and drifted alarmingly on Betfair – never a good sign with his yard (anecdotal) and they […]

August Trainers

Thanks to Ant for emailing me and asking whether I had any micro angles etc for August. I do like looking to see if there are trainers that tend to peak in a certain month with their handicappers. Clearly I am not in the habit of doing this yet so do keep reminding me! I […]
