  • From Jarrod…

    Evening folks,
    Andy N quite rightly pointed out the source of the winners Davidson is having at the moment…. Like you’re style Andy. Davidson sends out TI AMO today in the 5.10 at Ayr. 9s was around on the exchanges early yesterday afternoon…That’s long gone. Again this is one from the same source!!!
    Two run tomorrow that we have backed previously. They both ran on the same day at the same venue and they both appear again tomorrow at the same venue….Wolverhampton. Unfortunately you won’t see 20s this time round…..see 14th MAY post.
    SILVER CHARACTER 5.55 and GRAVITY WAVE 5.20. I’ll put them up again.
    I’m going to tip another Dascombe horse in the way of AMARONE RED in the 3.45.

    Good luck all

  • Golf update – Our Irish Open selection, Russell Know, took the tournament down in a play off. The 1 point each way bet returned 32.5 points. Our tournament match up bet lost 7 points. Our U.S. tournament selection Joachin Niemann was tied for 6th place with several others at 28/1 at 1 point each way and we lost 0.25 points. So last week we made 25.75 points and our cumulative for 2018 is +4.5 points.

  • I started a thread in the members’ section y’day about horses facing their weakest opposition. Here are today’s candidates that I have identified through my form study:-
    150 Master Sunrise
    230 Vallarta
    240 Words Not Deeds
    305 Palavicini Run
    415 Cupids Arrow
    500 Morning Sequel
    540 Pretty Bubbles
    700 Shamaheart
    740 Eltezaam
    The above listing is not meant to be comprehensive, so if you have ideas of your own, or contrary views then please say. I’m seeking a wide input because this is a subjective area and I’ve been thinking that there must be away to exploit a concept such as this.

    • Y’days results were 4 losers (an 8/1 second) and two winners, a loss of 2.59 pts BSP to 1% stakes. All bets recorded at win stakes of 1.1%.
      If this is a 2nd losing day, stakes will increase tomorrow to 1.2% per selection.

    • In terms of sample size, either time period or number of runners etc, what are you proposing going with in this exercise? What did you initially settle on re determining ‘weakest opposition’?

      • As yet I’ve no limit defined; more day’s like today will make me reconsider quickly but for the moment I’ll treat it as a one-off as, in hindsight, I think I got confused in making these choices. I’m using the grade of race as the ‘weakest’ categorisation.

  • Been trying to get to grips with the flat with better results than I thought myself capable of using a quite basic system. I wouldn’t encourage anyone diving in and some days there can be quite a few bets. sorry for abbreviated names but easy to see which they are. Odds are from earlier (around 9ish)
    Ayr
    3.35 – Soldiers @ 13/2
    Ripon
    8.00 – Moltazem @ 7/4 won’t be backing at them odds
    8.30 – Daffy @ 11/2
    Wind
    7.10 – Motown @ 12
    7.40 – Fanfair @ 11/2
    8.40 – Bayshore @ 7/2
    WAW
    2.40 – Compton @ 10
    3.45 – Medici @ 4
    5.55 – Caramuru @ 25 poss e/w? but I only do win.

  • Windsor Monday 9th July
    Ratings
    1. Swiper
    2. Sense Of Belonging, Indian Horseman
    3. Boa Nova, Deadly Force, Glorious Lover, Show The World, Superseded
    4. Requited
    Ratings Bet 1pt e/w Swiper
    I have pictures of Swiper, Requited and Boa Nova and gave them OR equivalents of 73, 75 and 74 respectively. All within a margin of error.
    I have not seen Glorious Lover but on debut at Newbury he finished within 1l of Almurr who I saw for the second time last week and gave 79. That was a good race and he looks the most likely winner on form.
    On physique of those I have seen I prefer Requited but without wishing to run Keniry down he is 5% at Windsor overall and 7% on 2yos. Other than the apprentice he is by a margin the worst 2yo jock in the race. I expect that if Requited still looks good and is a tasty price I will still have a muggy e/w.
    I don’t really think Swiper will win but having failed to back single top rated horses at 8’s twice recently I swore I would never make that mistake again. Also Ryan Moore is up so an e/w seems a good option.
