  1. Good morning Next selection 345 chepstow daheer 2pts 13/8 bog sky bet Oh dear - one of those losing runs. This horse was well fancied by connections running well below his expected grade. Drifted in the market and I suspect the gamble was abandoned when the money came for the winner. One for the note book. Bank 100 Now 108.9 W12 L13
  2. Good morning all On a day with an awful lot of average racing for a Saturday here is my next selection. 325 Newbury La Lune 1pt win 4/1 hills bog Very disappointing Bank 100 Now 110.95 W12 L11
  3. Good afternoon everyone Here is my next selection 510 Kempton Lordsbridge boy 1pt win 10/3 bog hills Primed with a good third at Windsor on his first run of the season. Didn't get his own way up front. One for the notebook. Bank 100 Now 111.95 W12 L10
  4. Hi all My next selection 335 Newmarket Golden Horde 1pt win 5/2 hills bog Expect this classy individual to cement his reputation here. Just not quite good enough on the day. Start bank 100 W12 L9 Bank 112.95 Just reviewing things since I started posting on here. 21 selections with a strike rate of 57% is pretty much how this selection process I have been following has shown its value. I was hoping for around 50-60% and so pleasantly at the upper end. Only around half a dozen selections each month and sometimes less than that but patience is the key in betting. I have set aside a decent bank to place on these selections. The key with any such bank is that it has to be money you are prepared to lose and definitely not money you need for everyday living. Gambling under financial pressure is the road to ruin and if you are gambling under such pressure it is time to accept you have to stop and probably seek some help before it becomes overwhelming.
  5. Good morning all My next selection 715 Leicester win o'clock 2pts win 11/8 bog hills skybet Another one I expect to win at a higher level than this. Took his time but got there cleverly in the end. Will count as 11/10 in view of rule 4 Bank 113.95 from 100 W11 L8
  6. Hi all Here is my next selection. In the derby Kameko 1pt win 4 hills bog I believe the Guineas form will be proven here. A strange Derby Probably not a vintage one Bank 111.75 from 100 W10 L8
  7. Hi all My next selection. 300 Haydock Derdas 1pt 11/10 Sky bet bog Again one from the information I have will move onto higher grades. Just found one too good Bank 112.75 from 100 W10 L7
  8. Good morning all My next selection 715 Kempton Good Tidings 1pt 5/2 Hills bog Another one that is expected to be winning at grades higher than this. In good form on the gallops. Looks like he may have suffered an injury as weakened very quickly when well in contention Bank 113.75 from 100 W10 L6
  9. Good morning all Next selection 450 Haydock Tigerskin 2points 6/4 hills bog Expected to go onto higher grade than this. Excellent win. Will count this as 5/4 owing to withdrawal. Bank 114.75 from 100 W10 L5
  10. Good morning all My next selection. 625 Kempton Combine 1pt win 11/8 bog hills Expected to improve considerably from his debut Disappointing run. Clearly very green. Bank 112.35 from 100 W9L5
  11. Good morning all Next selection has to be Pinatubo in the 300 Ascot 1point 11/8 bog Hill Going for a hat trick at Ascot Bank now 114.35 from 100 start W9L3 Ran a good race - just not the superstar he promised last year. Bank now 113.35 from 100 W9 L4

  14. Good morning all My next selection 300 Ascot Battleground 1point win 5/2 bog betway, sky From what I understand from his performance in training this is a potential Group 1 horse in a listed race. Start bank 100 W8 L3 Current bank 111.6 Showed the expected improvement and at a nice price. Start bank 100 W9 L3 Bank now 114.35
