Weekend off !!

Not great deal happening at the weekend ,just one flat card on Saturday at Lingfield park and no stand out bets there,Sunday is much the same one card at Southwell with very poor quality card

No bets over the weekend ,though quite happy how the first week of 2011 has gone with £400 profit,hopefully there will be few more betting opportunities next week.

It's waiting game !!

January looks like being one of them very quiet months,decent betting opportunities on the flat look very limited at the moment, mainly due to the lack of runners.Two flat cards on Friday at Lingfield & Wolverhampton both cards make no appeal whatsoever.

January & February are always the two quietest months for me,with most punters focusing on jumps racing,  though I made the decision this year to concentrate solely on flat racing, which means lot less betting opportunities in the winter months.Just have to stay patient and wait for the right races to come along.

Good start to 2011 !!

Good start to 2011 after SCARY MOVIE landed some tasty bets in great style winning 1 mile 2 furlong selling stakes at Lingfield by  easy 3.5 lenghs.

Available at around 10-3 in morning,  in fact he did touch as big as 4-1 with betfair thirty minutes before the race, was then subject to heavy late support forcing him into 5-2 favourite.Tidy profit on the day  £400 - 4.00 points.

On to Thursday two flat cards at Southwell & Wolverhampton ,though both cards make no great appeal with no outstanding bets.

Wednesday best bets !!

Two flat cards on Wednesday at Lingfield & Kempton.

One bet on Wednesday the first bet of 2011, going concentrate on the first race at Lingfield 1 mile 2 furlong selling stakes at 12.55.


SCARY MOVIE : Lightly raced 6-Y-0 gelding, only ran 3 times in 2010 ,won class 6 handicap over 1 mile 1 at Wolvehampton last march beating Alfie Tupper by 1.25 Lenghs of mark 62.

Followed that run with good 2ND in November at Kempton in 1 mile 4f claimer behind multiple claiming winner Talenti only just beaten by half  lengh .

Finished disappointing 4TH last time in claimer at Southwell ,though looked unsuited by deep fibresand.Will be suited by the return to polytrack and drop into selling company for first time.

VERDICT :  VISIONS OF JOHANNA looks the main danger after winning class 5 handicap at Haydock in May and finishing placed 4 times on turf this summer, drops into selling company for first time ,though hasn't run since last July.SCARY MOVIE with proven record on polytrack and also taking drop in class looks bit more solid and at around 3-1 mark looks fair value.

Quiet start in 2011!!

Two flat cards on Tuesday at Southwell & Kempton ,though again both cards make no real betting appeal with plenty tricky looking handicaps,decent betting opportunities look very limited .Wednesday looks lot more promising ,with couple interesting races at Lingfield Park.

Nothing doing on Bank holiday Monday !!

Two flat cards on Bank holiday Monday at Wolverhampton & Southwell ,though both cards make no appeal with next too no runners.In total there are only two races with more than 7 runners ,very disappointing !!

With so few runners most races end up very tactical  with many false results ,and its always difficult to find any real value in 5 or 6 runner races.No bets on Bank holiday Monday.

My betting methods !!

Just little information how I operate from day to day,I concentrate on non handicap flat races which consists of (CLAIMERS) (SELLING STAKES) (GROUP RACES) (LISTED RACES) (MAIDEN STAKES) (CONDITION RACES) (NOVICE STAKES) On average this would be 3 to 4 bets per week though there would be less bets in winter months

My starting betting bank in FEBRUARY 2010 was 100 points it increased to 146 points at the start of JANUARY 2011. all bets are level stake bets of 1 point each-way .this will not change till my betting bank reaches 200 points, then the bets would increase by 50 % .All my bets are normally posted just after midnight with price updates at around 11.00 am the next morning..
