REFLECTIONS

TIPS

Well another mediocre effort on that front but at the odds I play at, and at the winners I do occasionally land, it won’t take much to eradicate losses of recent weeks/months. Since the start of April, to the end of July, the Tips lost 27 points. I believe 20 of those have been from flat tips, with only one winner to show for my efforts to date. Many have been poor. But, that is only 1-3 wins away from getting back into positive territory and you have to stay positive!

I upped my game a bit on the Stats/Angles of Interest Section and while that is still in its infancy I suppose, it is looking ok. If I could repeat July every month that would be good! If I could average 8-10 points profit per month from that section I think that would add some benefit to the daily posts.

There is of course the Sprint Handicap Testing Zone as well- and for my own benefit in terms of confidence etc if I added all ‘tipping content’ together that is on around +156 points for the year to date, which isn’t too bad. That is more for my own self belief/development given that is a test section, and the Stats/Angles is relatively new ( and in context that official Tips have had a lull)

So, nothing too much there for me to worry about just yet, albeit I am conscious of the performance of the main Tips. Plenty to improve and to work on as always.

The SYSTEMS…

Gulp…. well I think it is best to treat these with a lot of caution now. Let me go in reverse…

TTP… these systems from my TTP Flat Profiles Guide were new this year and a trial of sorts on the blog, to be used as a guide. They needed to work systematically and to work as a portfolio. So far they are failing miserably with no great signs of life. They clearly need a rethink – as does my whole approach to micro systems in truth…

I do need to go through the micro systems portfolio and see which ones have done well and which have failed/are failing. I will do that asap. But again, they don’t make the prettiest of reading.

They are clearly not doing as intended and I am tempted to advise not to back them at all given the above until I have had an in depth look and pondered their future, and what I need to work on systems wise.

***

Any questions etc then do fire away as always…

    • Hi Christine. The main ‘tips’ are what they are,mainly NH. I have ventured more into sprint handicaps during flat after doing ok last season, using stats/trends etc but that hasn’t gone very well! I like the 3m+chases in winter months and have been good at those,historically. Hopefully I can continue that in the coming months.

      Everything else is/was an attempt to add some more things of interest,that you can use as a starting point yourself,or just ignore etc. ‘Tips’ will remain the main/only tipping element,where I look at a race in depth and that will be the case again with the jumpers in coming weeks/months.

      I have clearly struggled to find an approach that works this flat season and some pondering for next.

  • I’m looking for the best lay system, I have tried a lot but, I find one winner at the odds take all the profit. Would love to find one that wins , with short odds, so when I lose it does not take all the profit. Can you please help.
