3.Any ‘Notes’ (subjective views mainly, on some of the qualifiers)

Well sadly Huntingdon is off, which is a shame,as all three of those RP horses were going to win, never mind! There is one big priced horse at the moment, Harry Hunt in the 1.25. I am comfortable leaving him and indeed he may be worth adding into trackers, as having some kind of profile… in handicap hurdles, in October and November, he is 3/8,5p, +27Sp. It may well be that he has regressed given his age but he may be worth keeping an eye on later in the year, as he may pop up somewhere. It is likely he will be on a career high low mark by then also, unless winning beforehand. He is currently 0/14,1p in handicap hurdles Jan-April, 0/16,1p all handicaps, so he looks like an autumn horse. Also 0/5,0p 16+ runners, and 0/10,1p 31-60 days rest. So, I am happy to leave him today, he can beat me and I can live with that.

Nothing else is in the 16s/20s+ range.


4.Any general messages/updates etc

RESULTS… following some discussions it is apparent that I should really up my professionalism when it comes to recording results. While I urge you all to keep your own records, however basic, in terms of the content on these pages, I should start keeping more detailed records. So, I will go back to the start of Jan and record ratings pointers to ISP and BFSP, detailing every selection.(one reader has been keeping such records so that will help!) I will also do the same with all non ratings selections and try and record relevant information. In reality that shouldn’t be more than a 10-15 min job most days and there isn’t really an excuse for not doing it. From the start of next week I will also record best/common available price with BOG bookies.

TRENDS… there will be a Members Post up by lunchtime looking at any SkyBet trends/stats, if anything stands out.

  1. Hi Josh,
    After last nights debacle I’m not surprised you’re a bit hungover and missed this one…
    Nicky H @ H3.00 with Volnay de Thaix all Hc’s.

    Listened post match to 5live and some numpty screaming for Klopps head ??? erm, probably a manc.

    1. Hi ‘titus’ , that is two in two days I have missed first run through, a shocker! Thanks as always to you eagle eyed folk. Isn’t on any ratings pointers.

      Ha, while I don’t digress to talk about footy too often, that is rather laughable. Would be interesting to see how many managers could do what he has with the net spend etc. We are just one dimensional without Mane, and Phil still working his way back. We had a kid at right back, we don’t as yet have a world class spine, that is the problem. From goalkeeper, another centre back,not convinced on Can, so another in there, and we don’t have a world class striker, not one. Chelsea,City,United,maybe even spurs, arguably have a WC striker. He will know where he needs to strengthen. There was a graph being banded around about our January form, which across numerous regimes has been awful. No idea why. That would have been our third final under Klopp if we had won. It’s only a game. The majority of football fans would like to experience going out of semis and losing finals etc.

      Credit to them also, they did a defensive job on us. Teams seem to be working out how to play us and at times we just struggle to break them down. On another night Studge scores twice and who knows what would have happened. But, if he stops finishing, I don’t know what else he brings to the party. Injuries seem to have caught up with his speed etc sadly.

      Top 4 will be a fight mind, we need to turn around pretty sharpish.
