Members Report: 22/10/15 (UPDATED)

Well we were due a poor day. Thanks to a 3/1 winner for Fanshawe late on at Kempton it wasn’t as bad as it could have been – ending up between -2 and -3 point loss I think.  Micro Angles – as I have said before it is up to you how you utilise them. […]

Well a decent enough day yesterday with 2 wins from 4 bets, +6.75 points if backing them all. Caufield’s Venture responded well to the visor and was always travelling well – he is worth keeping an eye on next time out – it is just whether he responds to the headgear in the same way […]

Shortlist  2.10 Ponte – Catastrophe 2ND (HEAD) 22/1 – JJ Quinn is 2/5, 4 places here with his handicap dubants. This one has been running well in maidens and steps up in trip here. A slightly problematic draw but that is built into the price, 14/1. Clearly an open race on paper but he looks […]

Members Report 17/10/15 (UPDATED)

Well a decent day for the blog and any followers patience has hopefully been rewarded. With micro systems there were 7 bets with a formline of 1,UP,1,1,2,F, UP  – winners at 20/1, 8/1 and 4/1. Excluding micro systems this month (winners at 14/1, 6/1, 4/1 and 8/1 so far) the daily ‘members reports’ are +19.5 […]

A nice 8/1 winner for NTD made it a decent enough day with the other qualifier coming 3rd at 8/1. The shortlisted horse just wasn’t very good and drifted out to 16/1 which on this occasion did look a negative – and runs like that with handicap debutants happen. Not a horse I will be […]

Cheltenham Showcase Meeting: Pointers

Some Pointers for the upcoming Cheltenham Showcase Meeting… *** TRAINERS  (all stats from 2010- as usual) Clearly we are dealing with small numbers here but they are useful pointers. At first glance it doesn’t look like a meeting where you should go chasing big priced winners, especially from the yards below. Price is of course […]

Well a brilliant start to yesterday with a 1-2 in the 2.10 – it would have been nice if the Quinn runner could have got up having drifted to 22/1,(head) but settling for a 12/1 winner for Channon micro angle is never a bad thing. No idea how the Bridgewater horse would have done, Cannon […]

Well with one shortlist horse to go as I write this all of the ‘tips’ have been pretty poor. All 3 in the 3.45 ran poorly and the only ‘highlight’ was backing a 13/2 shot at 16/1. But, that is the nature of those big straight course handicaps. The winner did it well with a […]

Well a non runner and another poor show from a shortlisted horse. The Henry Oliver horse halved in price but ran as if  a) wasnt very good b) needed the run c) wants further d) all of the above. But, I suspect the trainer will get a tune out of him at some points.  I […]

Members Report: 14/10/15 (UPDATED)

Nothing much to go at today. Wetherby looks a decent card and one to watch with the notebook at hand – there are quite a few decent trainer stats from the guide but every horse has something to prove – mainly fitness and/or jumping. The chases look competitive and they are littered with unexposed types […]
