  1. Two doubles and one treble today. There are loads of short-priced favourites running in class 5 races and below today. I have found four selections today which was a struggle. I have to post these up now as I have no time tomorrow morning. I am hoping that I have got some good early prices. Doubles: (A) 7.05 N.Abb (6) Don’t Look Here 3/1, 7.35 N Abb (1) Bermeo = £4 v £56.00 (B) 7.25 Yar (1) Sir Titan 10/3, 8.05 N Abb (11) Polar Chance 6/1 = £4 V £121.32 Treble: (1) 7.05 N Abb Don’t Look Here, 7.25 Yar Sir Titan and 7.35 N Abb Bermeo 5/2 = £2 V £121.32 Total = £10 staked today. Results Update: Two-thirds today; even the short priced favourites lost. Hence a £10 hit today Original Bank £2,538.61 Less £320 July Tirxies add £346.96 August Doubles and trebles = £2,565.57 C/Fwd ROI N/A
  2. @pirate53 I once read about the principle ingredients for intelligence, persistence was the only one I felt I qualified for. You make a very valid point though. Although I got it all wrong with Trixies back in July. I didn't really give up on them but the wins were so infrequent that I found it depressing. I was then committed to doubles and trebles throughout August and will continue to do so. Unfortunately too many people give up too soon on a strategy. Spreading my £20 among more than three selections seems to yield better results than just pinning my hopes on three. The problem is that although all my selections are meant to run well the fact is that a lot of horses seem to have off days when they just do not live up to their reputations. Once I accepted this phenomenon I just increased my number of selections when and where possible in the belief that at least some of these animals would perform as they were supposed to do so.
  3. Two doubles and one treble today. Only four selections today. I do like Mauricio 5.35 Catt 3.33 and 6.30 Win Indian Raj 3.0 but I don’t like their prices so I won’t be backing them. Doubles: (A) 2.15 Ling (5) Zappiness 11/4, 6.10 Bang(5) Red Inca 9/2 = £4 v £82.48 (B) 5.30 Win ((6) Tone The Baron 7/2, 7.0 Win (8) High Acclaim 3/1 = £4 V £72.00 Treble: (1) 2.15 Ling Zappiness, 5.30 Win Tone The Barone and 6.10 Bang High Acclaim = £2 V £185.62 Total = £10 staked today. Results Update: Well, now you know why I don’t put great store by short-priced favourites. Magical Effect was sent off 13/8F. It could only finish 3rd beaten 1.75 lengths. As Jenny Pitman used to say “It doesn’t matter how much money you put on a horse, it won’t make it run any faster”. Had it won I would have received £57.50 for the double and £129.38 for the treble = £186.88. Not to be though I’m not complaining as I did at least get yet another double in for £82.50 less £16 = £66.50 on the day. Guess what I am now in accumulated profit and having a great run in August after allowing for a brought forward loss of £320 from July. This is an equivalent of £356.96/£2538.61 = 14% ROI. Not bad for mug punters bets eh? Original Bank £2,538.61 ADD £36.96 = £2,575.57 C/Fwd ROI N/A
  4. Three doubles and two trebles today. I was going to take a day off today but just couldn’t help myself from having another go. Doubles: (A) 3.20 Sou (3) Royal Village 4/1, 5.0 Pont (1) Magical Effect 15/8 (steamed into from 3/1, should have taken 3/1 last night = £4 v £57.48 (B) 3.30 Pont ( 2) Perfection 9/2 (did take the price last night; now 7/2), 5.30 Pont( 8) Springwood Drive 11/4 = £4 V £82.48 (C) 2.50 Sou ( (1) Capital Force 5/2, 5.20 Sou Nemean Lion 6/1 = £4 V £98 Trebles: (1) 3.20 Sou Royal Village, 3.30 Pont Perfection and 5.0 Pont Magical Effect = £2 V £129.36 (2) 2.50 Sou Capital Force, 5.20 Sou Nemean Lion and 5.30 Pont Springwood Drive = £2 v £196.86 This equals £16 staked in total today. Incidentally, should one of my first leg doubles blow out and I’m around I will place a £2 win double using the second leg selection with the next strongest selection available. This is part of my overall strategy. I am able to do this twice today to make up my full £20 wager for the day. For obvious reasons any wins or losses have to be off the book figures as I cannot give the revised selections out properly in advance Results Update: One double; should have paid more but for a withdrawn horse = £68.90 less £10 = £58.90 Original Bank £2,538.61 LESS £29.54 = £2,509.07 C/Fwd ROI N/A
  5. Two doubles and a treble today. Not enough time for full research. I really like Hortzadar in the 4.25 Ripon (A) 3.0 NB Rip Orf 3/1, 3.20 NM Graceful Magic 11/4 = £4 V £60.00 (B) 3.25 Don Orvar 3/1, 4.25 Rip Hortzadar 7/2 = £4 V £72 TREBLE: (1) 3.0 NB Ripp Orf , 3.20 NM Graceful Magic and 4.25 Rip Hortzadar = £2 V £135.00 Results Update: No winners today. Two seconds that traded at less than 1.40 but still got beat. Losss for the day = £20 Original Bank £2,538.61 LESS 88.44 = £2,450.17 C/Fwd ROI N/A
  6. Four doubles and two trebles today (A) 2.45 Wolv (6) Fairy Fast 11/4, 3.40 Nott (6) Polyphony 3/1 = £4 V £60.00 (B) 3.30 NB (2) AL Raya 10/3, 7.000Thrsk Hawaam 11/2 = £4 V £112.64 (C) 2.05 NB (3) Daddys Daughter 3/1, 6.50 NM (2) Moxy Mares 4/1 = £4 V £80 (D) 3.30 NB (1) Good Vibes 9/2, 4.0 NB (4) Shammah 4/1 = £4 V £110.00 TREBLES: (1) 2.45 Wolv Fairy Fast, 3.30 NB Al Raya and 3.40 Nott Polyphony = £2 V £130.00 (2) 2.25 NB Daddys Daughter, 6.50 NM Moxy Mares, 7.0 Thrsk Hawaam =£2 V £260.00

This was my strongest double and it was a pity that Lord Of The Alps came second as I would have had at least another £63.36 treble Original Bank £2,538.61 LESS 68.44 = £2,470.17 C/Fwd ROI N/A

  11. @Kingmambo. One thing I will say is that no matter how one selects their bets you will find that the horses just do not perform as they should do. I can still remember backing Mustashary in a op class race. All it had to do was replicate what it did in its last recent race to win. It did not. I wasted too much money on selecting just 3 runners for my Trixies in July. I have now found it much better to have a wider range of selections in the hope that at least some of these beasts go and do what they should do according to form. I purposely choose what are deemed to be "trappy" or "open" races because I believe that the bookies have the races with short priced favourites sewn up. I am beginning to have real fun with my strategy now and will continue in this vein as I feel that it will come good very soon. Best of luck with your strategy. Do you have any results that I can look at so as to compare with my selection and betting method?
  12. FOUR DOUBLES AND TWO TREBLES TODAY A LOT OF RACING TODAY SO I’M ALL INFOR £20 TODAY (A) 2.0 BEV (11) KENDRED SOUL 11/4, 3.30 BEV (2) ARCHIE PERKINS 11/4 = £4 V £56.24 (B) 4.0 BEV (9)LANGHOLM 11/4, 6.30 WORC(2) CARDY 3/1 = £4 V £60 (C) 4.20 SAL (6) STARFIGHTER 3/1, 5.05 BEV (6) FOUR WHEEL DRIVE 10/3 = £4 V £69.32 (D) 2.50 SAL (9) TEXTING 11/4 4.50 SAL (5) TELL WILLIAM 4/1 = £4 V £75 TREBLES (1) 2.0 BEV KENDRED SOUL, 3.30 BEV ARCHIE PERKINS AND 4.0 BEV LANGHOLM = £2 V£105.46 (2) 4.20 SAL STARFIGHTER, 5.05 BEV FOUR WHEEL DRIVE AND 6.30 WORC CARDY = £2 V £138.66 RESULTS UPDATE: NO BETS YESTERDAY SO THE BANK REMAINS THE SAME. Original Bank £2,538.61 LESS (£184.52 + £88.25) = LESS £96.27= £2,442.34 C/Fwd ROI N/A
  13. NO DOUBLES OR TREBLES TODAY I COULD ONLY FIND FIVE POSSIBLE RACES TODAY. HOWEVER, TWO OF THE RACES HAD IN MY OPINION TWO EQUALLY VIABLE SELECTIONS WHILST THE OTHER THREE RACES ARE AT CARLISLE WHERE THE GOING IS FORECAST AS BEING HEAVY WITHOUT ENOUGH POSSIBLE SELECTIONS WITH PROVEN FORM IN SUCH TESTING CONDITIONS. LOOKS LIKE A DAY FOR THE BOOKIES TO MAKE LOTS OF MONEY. NOT FROM ME THOUGH. RESULTS UPDATE: TWO WINNERS AND A SECOND. LUCKILY THE TWO WERE IN A DOUBLE WHICH PAID £104.25. ENGROSSED DRIFTED LIKE A BARGE TO 13/2 WHILST CARADOC SHORTENED INTO 11/10F. ALL THIS MEANT THAT INSTEAD OF £67.48 I RECEIVED £104.25. THIS VALUE LESS £16 OUTLAY = A NET PROFIT OF £88.25 ON THE DAY. IT IS A FUNNY THING ABOUT HORSE RACING, SINCE MOST HORSES, LOSE IN A RACE IT IS OH SO SIMPLE TO CONCLUDE THAT THE MARKET GOT IT RIGHT ABOUT A DRIFTER WHEN IT LOSES, HOWEVER WHEN A HORSE WINS LIKE “ENGROSSED” DID AT 13/2 FROM 7/2 THE MARKET CLEARLY GOT IT ALL WRONG. FOOD FOR THOUGHT? I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH FANTASTIC FLYER. IT RAN NO SORT OF RACE AND FINISHED SECOND TO LAST AT 3/1F. DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED THERE. HAD BUG BOY WON THE 7.30 AT WINDSOR I WOULD HAVE ADDED £239.77 TO MY TALLY (JUST DAYDREAMING). Original Bank £2,538.61 LESS (£184.52 + £88.25) = LESS £96.27= £2,442.34 C/Fwd ROI N/A At least I am steadily retrieving the losses made on the £20 Trixies throughout July.
  14. THREE DOUBLES, TWO TREBLES AND ONE POSSIBLE WIN BET SIX SELECTIONS FROM THE EVENING MEETINGS TODAY SINGLE: 6.20 WOLV FANTASTIC FLYER £4.50 @ 5.3 (UNMATCHED AT 4.6) WITH A £4.50 LAY BET AT 1.47 = £16.37 IF BOTH BETS MATCHED AND THE HORSE WINS DOUBLES: (A) 6.0 WIN (2) COMPANY MINX 7/2, 6.20 WOLV (2) FANTASTIC FLYER 7/2 =£4 V £81.00 (B) 6.30 WIN (2) DRAMATIC SANDS 5/2, 7.30 WIN (5) BUG BOY 4/1 = £4 V £70 (C) 6.50 WOLV(11) ENGROSSED 7/2, 7.0 WIN (3) CARODOC 11/4 = £4 V £67.48 TREBLES: (1) 6.00 WIN COMPANY MINX, 6.20 WOLV FANTASTIC FLYER AND 6.30 WIN DRAMATIC SOUNDS = £2 V £141.74 (2) 6.50 WOLV ENGROSSED, 7.0 WIN CARODOC AND 7.30 WIN BUG BOY = £2 V £168.74 RESULTS UPDATE: ON A QUIET SUNDAY WITH ONLY TWO UK MEETINGS AND FOUR SELECTIONS I AT LAST MANAGED MY FIRST TREBLE OF £84.03 FOR A £2 STAKE. WELL OVERDUE. I ALSO MANAGED A DOUBLE OF £52 FOR A £4 STAKE. MY SINGLES BET WON BUT I AM NOT INCLUDING THESE IN MY FIGURES. Original Bank £2,538.61 Add £84.03 + £52 less £320.55 = £2,354.09 C/Fwd ROI N/A
  15. SINGLES CORRECTION 3.35 WIN GRANDFATHER TOM £4 WIN AT 4.2. WITH INSURANCE LAY BET OF £4 AT 1.47 I/R. NOW TRADING AT 3.80 SO IT MAY GET MATCHED BEFORE THE OFF = £10.37 IF THE BET GETS MATCHED AND WINS
