2.Any ‘Notes’ (my subjective thoughts/’tips’)

Test/trial  : ‘NOTES’ ‘aka Tips’(2017 Sept-Dec: 31/176, +110.75)(2018: 11/130,41p, +1)  (1 point win bets) (Festival Tips 2018: +101.5)

Nothing today… strange for a Saturday but nothing on this page is tempting me in at the prices really and there isn’t much point tipping for the sake of it. I haven’t really looked through Stratford after yesterday’s Hunter Chase debacle, where they appear to have over watered and the ground was reported to be riding soft. I’m guessing as to what it will be today, but those who want decent summer ground ‘could’ be in trouble. 


Recent Tips

(running total, from 07/06/18: 2/6,2p, +11..5) 

3.15 Bev – Kodyanna 11/2 WON 11/2>4/1 (built on clear promise LTO when mentally green, GF clearly no problem which was the question, and up against some decent ones, has won that a shade cosily  and suspect better at 6f. Best note those who finished ahead of her at Notts, GOSPEL and VENA D’AMORE…it was soft that day, they may appreciate better ground or pop up in nurseries or better when softer in autumn?) 

3.25 Hayd- Blue De Vega 14/1 UP.. a level too high I think and does definitely need 6f+, or a proper cavalry charge over 5f in a handicap, still finish. Some minor promise.

4.Any general messages/updates etc

Ah, well I got Suitcase N Taxi completely wrong and on reflection thought about his chance all wrong. I probably owe you an apology for the write up- I usually try and keep to positives as to a horse’s chance to ensure you are not talked out of a bet on my say so. I failed on that front spectacularly and I know there will be some of you who didn’t have a penny on due to what I wrote. If I hadn’t have written anything or just stuck to a few positives, even if I didn’t tip him, you may have had a nibble. So, I’ll do my best to just highlight any positives, especially if I don’t tip them, and will steer away from any subjective negatives. There was plenty I could improve on with that effort… this is all said with hindsight but I know what I did wrong yesterday morning… I thought the fav may be unbeatable (but then running a few times in short space of time can lead to a bow out/lack of finishing kick eventually, however easily they appear to win) and there were a few others of interest… looked an ok race. I should have looked solely with purpose of making a case for him, at the odds but instead searched for reasons not to back him. Instead…

-double figure price
-unexposed over 5f…do NOT read it as a negative (which I did), given only his second try over it, and as you point out it was at a stiff track so his stamina may come to fore..think I saw that he’d won here over 6f and thought it may be too sharp even here, but should have marked up track form
-handicap mark was fine/below last win
-horse in form, 3rd run of season, could now be cherry ripe
-trainer in red hot form, and better form when horse last seen
-Allan back on
-likely to run his race
-option of EW, given fear of others. At least mentioning that as an option.

The stats are building up since mid April or so, and maybe in time it will just be a case of setting up a separate bank and having something on all of them with the 3 runs and you’re out/stop at a winner. And from there deciding if you/I want more on etc. Given I will generally be tipping unexposed ones, or if exposed then I must like their handicap mark/think coming to boil/about to run in ideal conditions, it makes sense for that approach to work.

  1. One winner – Ziarah at 6/1- and one NR left us 1pt down today. Very close to three winners with Teepee Time 16/1 SP & My Fantasea 8/1 just edged out close home. Fine margins!

    Also 1pt down for the week.

    There is an AW card at Wolves on Sunday but it’s all Arab races for which I have no stats, so the next meetings will be at Chelmsford and Kempton on Wednesday. Back Tuesday with qualifiers.

  2. Would someone mind reminding me what the criteria for the handicap chase system starting point is in test zone please?

    1. I forget where I put the research,maybe in the research link somewhere but in effect looks at LTO hncp chase winners that ran in last 20 days or so from memory. Not sure if a class /distance criteria I forget. At time of research it was 30% win and 50% win/place from a decent sample. Not to be backed systematically as plenty are not a value price, but a decent ‘way in’ before looking at them/race more closely.

      1. Thanks Josh. Yes – up to 2m5f looks best historically, although been opposite to date this year.

        1. Ah, criteria…
          Age 4-9
          0-2 hncp chase wins
          won LTO
          Ran 1-20 days ago

          267/910,452 places, +15 SP, +73 BFSP since 2013, AE is only 1.01 (hence ‘starting point’)

          2018: 16/56,25p, +11 BFSP (so keeping in line with other years so far. Certainly is a decent way in, just judging which ones are still value, esp at top end)


          1. Do you have a record of the full dataset to quantify the LLR (longest losing run), Josh?

          2. according to HRB, since start 2013… hope this reads ok, just copied/paste… losing sequence on left, how many times it occurs on right…

            1 54
            2 38
            3 28
            4 21
            5 11
            6 9
            7 10
            8 4
            9 2
            10 2
            11 3
            12 1
            15 2
            21 1

          3. Thanks. That 21 is a bit of a tester. Otherwise manageable, backing them all to a staking plan and an average SP of 7/2, perhaps?

          4. oh I wouldn’t touch it backing them systematically given the AE is 1.01, I prefer the AE at SP to be a fair chunk higher than that. Wasn’t researched to back them all, more a way in knowing the underlying numbers/SRs. The profit will simply be down to the luck of a big priced winner or two.
            That’s betting, losing run of 21 is nothing really is it? That’s with a win SR of 30% and is in line with around what you expect once every 1000 bets, so that’s bang there. Most of my SRs between 10-20%,so best be prepared for a sterner test than that haha.

          5. Context is all, Josh 🙂
            We would be backing lto out winners @ 30%SR (almost the equivalent of favs.) but getting higher prices on average, it seems, so a completely different scenario from backing your selections with low strike rates. If you could email me the whole file I’ll undertake a feasibility study, as this is quite an attractive proposition as a long term earner for us, but as you say, we’ll see.

  3. Do feel PJ would have got Dominating home today and if he didn’t miss the break Mutafallet would have placed at least but we’ve been on the right side of these flips often enough.
    Last Page Haydock Saturday 17:10 1pt e/w Price taken 7/1
    Our Little Pony Beverley Saturday 18:10 1pt e/w Price taken 10/1
    Make Music Lingfield Saturday 19:20 1pt e/w Price taken 12/1 (has been tipped up elsewhere but still 10-11/1 in places available)
    All Set To Go Stratford Saturday 19:05 1pt e/w Price taken 11-12/1 (one bookie paying 16/1)

    1. Yankee fits nicely.

      Tips – 2.45 Cur, Crystal Icon – 124 rated hurdler in a 6F turf handicap. Not something you see every day. 1 point each way at 16/1.
      I am also laying Blue De Vega, 3.25 HP. I see this as a prep for the Wokingham at Royal Ascot. This horse is a 6F horse.

      Robbie McNamara watch – a 40/1 second and 2 losers yesterday. Only one runner today in the 2.45 Cur, Power of Ten around 33/1.

      Good Luck.

    2. Well I suppose as far as 15 minutes go that wasn’t a terrible one! Just about recovered from being pissed off about the jockey switch on Our Little Pony.

        1. Well it showed it wasn’t there to win and one of the large reasons I tipped it was given the eye-catching jockey booking but I guess we can’t do anything about those things. Certainly will keep an eye on that one for next time.

  4. I didn’t get a chance to post yesterday afternoon, but thanks for the through the card at Goodwood Josh. I did have a squizz through your picks. Somehow managed to win 4 out of 6 with yours and Chris selections plus a couple of system bets, so had a cracking evening. Unfortunately had the wife with me who pocketed most of the winnings, but it’ll keep me in the good books for a while 🙂

    1. Good stuff James, yep a good use of the across the board efforts, as always 2 winners from such efforts usually makes the day from my through the card, but I had to wait for the last to find one at 4s and 33/1 3rd. Could have been worse, a couple of seconds, and not much else to cheer. The Candy horse got a poor ride from out the back off a slow pace/leaders didn’t come back, unless he is just slow/no turn of gear/needs even further. He’s in the tracker. Glad you had a good time, you’d take 4/6 on any trip to races! Well done. And to Chris. Sounds like you ignored my musings on the shorty and went with his Fry pick hopefully!
      Yep I think you will, she may even let you go again some day haha

  5. Beverley 4.25 Bit Of A Quirke 3 points win

    Returns to the scene of his 2 career wins with a handicap mark 3 below his last win.
    At a course which suits front running BOAQ from stall 5 looks most likely to take them along here and I think the plan will be to make every post a winning one and expect to see a charge to the front very early.
    The booking of Andrew Mullen interests me as he has only been riding Rickyroadboy for this trainer this season and they have combined to win 3 from 6 and 2 places and rose in the ratings from 51 to 71.

    Word of warning as my record from the start of April for posting on here has been dire with 12.6 points loss and 0 horses winning their race.

  6. For the followers of LTO LOSERS there are 3 out today. Josh has highlighted Kodyanna already the other 2 are Bahuta Acha – (Haydock, 17:10) and La Sioux – (Beverley, 17:00).
    BA is on his 3rd run out from when Josh tipped it but went in nto at 25s prior to us tracking them currently 16/1. Up against one of Nicks picks a nice rev fc?
    LS is on his 2nd outing since tipped 1st time out won at 5/2 so in theory it has paid for itself and made us a profit albeit a small one currently 9/2 so you might want to have a go again to increase profits.
    Do as you see fit I am currently +43 BOG on following so will have a 1/2 pt ew on BA and a 1/2 pt win on LS.

    Hope you all have a successful day.


    1. Good stuff Mike, I’ll just be stopping at a winner for my own reporting purposes but no harm in following those that have won, within the 3 strikes and you’re out.. suspect some of them will follow up again within that time and may be value still etc. GL

      That was close Bahuta Acha 2nd at 16s BOG 12s SP a wee profit, paid for La Sioux loss.

      Kodyanna WON 7s BOG. Nice one Josh.

  8. PAULS BETS. 4.35 haydock summerghand 1 point each way after yesterday +4.8 points good luck

  9. Looks like the bookies have caught up with the Dascombe route to profit.His handicappers look really poor value for not having achieved a lot.De Sousa may sneak it from the front on Calder Prince but again no value there

  10. Hi, sorry they are late.

    14:30 Musselburgh
    COPPER KNIGHT 10/1 gen 1pt ew
    Class 2 events in May/June are the time to catch this horse which has won 3 times from 4 races under those conditions. Will strip fitter after its seasonal debut last time out (won 2nd time out last year) and with only 15 runs is a lot less exposed than many of these. The trainer is in great form too and the 10/1 makes plenty of appeal.
    EL ASTRONAUTE 5/1 2pt win
    A horse that hardly ever runs a bad race and if he can reproduce his last run when just touched off when running off the same mark looks good value.

    14:35 Newmarket
    EASTERN IMPACT 10/3 gen 2pt win
    Course and distance winner Eastern Impact is the one to be with here for R.Fahey. R.Moore takes the ride that is a tip in itself. This horse has won off a mark of 112 been tumbling down the weights goes off 94 today.
    GUNMETAL 11/2 bfr 1pt ew
    This horses debut winning run for the Barron stable last time out suggests he’s improved this ex Charlie Hills horse and Ben Curtis takes the ride again. Gunmetal has also won at this course when winning by nearly 3 lengths from a horse than won its next race. Looks like there’s much more to come.

    17:10 Haydock
    LAST PAGE 7/2 gen 2pt win
    SDS is in tip top form here and eyecatching as a booking for this one. The step down in class and decent draw could see this one go in at a nice looking 7/2.
    LORD OF THE GLEN 13/2 gen 1pt ew#
    Lord Of The Glen ran second to Kodtime and York lto in a Class 3 over 5f in a quick time,, looks to have a decent chance of taking this Class 4 running off only a pound higher mark.

    Good luck with whatever you back today!

  11. One for you layers from the generous Paddy Power i do not think so
    Timed 13.35
    Noticed in the paper that they are offering Money Back as a free bet on all losers if
    Reverend Jacobs wins 8/13 on at the moment,what do they know,that it will not win!!!

  12. Nowhere near Scoffaw, 20s?10s, hopefully some may have had a go, but I’ve stared again for a while after and I still can’t get myself into place to have tipped him, even knowing he’s now won! Maybe I’ll look again and need to watch that York run back. Same Owen couldn’t hang on, only one I backed in that race, on the nose. Strategies could do with a nice priced one holding on/going one place better.

    1. I wasn’t on him but his proximity form is ok and when you click on direction his stats suggest value. Kicking myself aswel but I did have the 2nd place .

      1. I’ll have a proper look later. No doubt missed something/didn’t think about x, always something to learn and take away from 20s shots. And my aversion to under 6s shots could have found two. Ah.

  13. Nick saving the best until last. Wallop X2. Well done. And well done Chris, a 12 point loss is nothing and gone in one fell swoop. A few nice ones dotted around. Go Team RTP 🙂
