Daily Tips

5.15 Kelso – Rory’s Valentine – 1 point win – 8/1 (betfS/PP) 7/1 (gen) (09.28)   NR 


I thought this LTO winner looked the most interesting in here and one of the few open to further progress. Her last win was arguable her first run in such conditions- 20f on decent ground and 18f around Kelso should be fine. That was also her first run after a wind op and it was her first run in 123 days. Her profile gives the impression that connections (both new and old) think she must be best fresh, so I wont be using fitness as an excuse. If you have a jumps horse that’s best fresh and who needs decent ground, you’re not going to be able to fire many bullets through the course of the year, so i’d like to think this one will arrive at the top of her game. She could well be the best jumps horse in the yard I suspect. She also beat the right horse LTO which makes me think it wasn’t a fluke. Hello Fellas was rated 102 and has placed twice since in C4s. The 4th has since won a C4 handicap hurdle off 98. Had she not flattened the last that day she’d have won more easily but still did it cosily enough for me. She may appreciate this track more and has course experience, having run well over 2m6f here in a C4 a few starts ago, before flattening out up the straight. There’s every chance this one could have plenty in hand still and in general faces many more exposed rivals, including the 3 qualifiers in section 1. I’m probably asking for trouble taking them on but there we go. She showed decent tactical speed the last day and will be held up off the pace I suspect, hopefully not too far off it given they know she stays further and they’ve found the key. If she runs her race/builds on LTO, she’d run more like a 7/2 shot in this field for me and as such 7s looked generous enough.

That will be it for today, I personally couldn’t get that enthused by the flat cards having had a flick through.

Looking ahead to the Jumps

If some of the jumps results over recent months are repeated during the main winter season we should have some fun. There appear to be 6 or so ‘strategies’ that are worth plenty of attention –  S1, S2A , S3A, S3A# , w1, w2 


Results 2017 : 132 bets / 17 wins / 13% sr / +91 early|bog / +118 BFSP / 69 % ROI

Results 2018 up to 16th Sept : 5/66, 19p, +21, +48.5 BFSP



  • Win only (1 point win): 8/136,27p, +38, +83 (BFSP)
  • Each Way (1/2 point EW): 8/136,27p, +39.475
  • Each Way (1pt EW): 8/136,27p, +78.95


Results 2018 : 33/153,48p, +35.41


Jumps since Sept 1st 2017 – 16th Sept 2018: 30/97, 44p, +45.91

(a more focused alternative to S3A/fewer bets/greater ROI. Logically, given the use of ratings pointers, it may be more reliable moving forwards also) 


12th Feb – 16th Sept 2018 : 36/113,43p, +51.25


12th Feb – 16th Sept 2018: 17/86, 30p, +30.6 

Total w1 +w2 : 199 bets / 53 wins / 73 win|place / 27% win SR / +81.85 


Personally, the collection of jumps strategies/angles above, from a systematic perspective, loos to be the place to focus this coming season. S1/S2A/S3A (or S3A#)/w1 + w2 are on +175 points or so for 2018 to morning prices, +250 or if backing S1 + S2 to BFSP. 

I think i’ll be dumping S3 for the new stats guide, and S4 + S5 haven’t really been cutting it over sticks. 

I’ll be renewing the stats guide which of course always brings with it some dangers, given the results above are based on the current version, but I take the same approach to researching it every year so fingers crossed they all keep ticking along. 

Clearly some of those have a lower win SR than others, and all will have chopping losing runs. As always you need adequate banks and to start small, building up as time goes on/banks double etc. If backing 4/5 of those as a portfolio I’d probably have a 200 point bank to be safe, if not 250, but that’s being cautious I think. But, if a few of those had their worst runs at the same time, it would be testing for a while. 

Anyway, as always that information is presented for you to absorb and use/ignore as you please.

  1. One winner at 3/1 SP from five qualifiers on Tuesday. Fairly poor. Before posting Wednesday’s qualifiers just wanted to reiterate that these are not “tips” unless stated, rather they are (to use Josh’s phrase) ways in to look further at the race. Obviously form, price and level of competition all dictate whether a bet is viable (teaching Granny, I know…)

    There are lots tomorrow. The win/place percentages are all from 12 months unless stated.

    14.30 Yarmouth – Rayig (41/83) 10/1, Desert Land (41/58) 12/1, Victory Day (46/59) 9/2

    15.00 Yarmouth- Lehoogg (41/83) 4/1, Snow Storm (50/61) 6/1

    15.35 Yarmouth – Sheikha Reika (41/83) 10/1

    16.40 Yarmouth – Courtside (41/58) 7/4

    17.40 Yarmouth – Lady Dancelot (41/50) 5/2

    16.10 Kelso – Falak (50/62; 66/83 last 30 days) 5/2

    17.45 Kelso – Cubomania (ditto) 5/2

    18.15 Kelso – De Plotting Shed (ditto) 5/1, Alfie’s Choice (46/53) 10/3

    18.45 Kelso – Miss Aloud (ditto) 7/2

    15.25 Beverley – Weather Front (53/80) 5/1

    16.20 Sandown – Whitlock (41/66 last 30 days) 11/2

    Phew! Scope for some fun Lucky 15s and Trixies as some of the shorter priced ones have live chances. Just need to winkle them out, no problem!!

    Good luck.

    1. Bit harsh on yourself Mark, a Win at 11/4, 2nd 13/2 & 3rd 12/1 from 5 picks, still a profit of 3 points on a ‘fairly poor’ day!

      1. True (thank you) but as I don’t suggest wins versus EW I think it’s a bit cheeky to claim credit for seconds and thirds, albeit I did back those myself each-way.

    2. Hello Mark,

      Thank you for providing these stats, they are proving helpful and won me a few bob the other day.

      I don’t want to seem ungrateful but I notice that you have provided two different one year stats here. The Mclintock/Gormley stat is trainer/jockey, while the Varian/Atzeni stat is trainer/jockey/course. Would it be possible to say in future if the stat is course related or not please? Would save me having to look them all up.

      Thank you again.

  2. Thanks for the kind words guys. Let hope we can keep the run going tomorrow:

    Misty Spirit Sandown Wednesday 13:40 1pt e/w Price available 16/1

    B 4.30 – Bondi Beach Boy on 2nd run @ 11
    B 4.30 – Foxtrot Knight on 3rd, 4th and 10th run @ 33
    S 4.20 – Monoxide on 2nd and 3rd run @ 15/2
    S 3.15 – Zhui Feng on 1st run @ 14
    Y 5.10 – Line of Reason on 3rd run @ 11/2

    Sorry chaps, My tracker didn’t send email and I’ve had to go through the cards to find them.

      1. Cheers Colin, It’s not the first time an email’s failed but i was in Bradford last night for beer/PSG humbling and curry so didn’t know no email til this morning. There are a couple of other issues with the tracker but can’t find another that’s unlimited. I use GG’s.

      1. the number of times they’ve run since I tipped them in Section 2 (or free post), without winning. Mike stops at a winner. backing my losing tips on their next start has won 300+ or so points since last Sept, as an example, but generally appear to be profitable to back for a few runs, before stopping, albeit very choppy if doing that systematically.
        He’s been posting like that for over 2 months I think, with a few results updates along the way! 🙂

        1. to follow on from Josh. As he’s tipped it on 3 separate occasions I personally back it 3 times and the stats will reflect that, BUT I have been backing for a few months now and have more than tripled my starting bank so in effect my stake is now 3pts. I assume with FK that each ‘tip’ is worth 3, 2 and 1pt as that’s probably how much I had on originally, so I’ve bet 6pts of my original bank. If recently starting to back I would only use the most recent ‘run’ as my bet.

          1. Thanks Mike. I got the bit that Josh explained. I didn’t realise he’d tipped some of them multiple times. All clear now. Cheers

          2. Oh apologies Ken, I’ve got wrong end of stick there with your question! Read it as if you were unaware of what Mike was tracking generally etc. Yep some of them i’ve tipped a few times, many still running! 🙂

  4. Chris M Selections:
    17:15 – Mitcd (6/1 in places, 11/2 gen)
    17:15 – Sleep In First (7/1 gen)
    17:45 – Ifandbutwhynot (7/2 gen)

    Good luck today 🙂

  5. Sandown 5:25 – shufoog 10/1. Down in grade and distance and last win on flat was over this trip. Lower mark than last win and jockey/trainer are 19/5 in hcps. Trainer seems confident too on LTA site.
