Another quiet weekend !!!

Not great deal happening over the next few days, after going through both All Weather cards on Friday there are no possible bets at either meeting.

Field sizes has been problem  all winter long on the All Weather ,and again on Friday we have five non handicap races, with no race having more than seven runners, in fact Wolverhampton have three races with four or less runners.Very disappointing !!

 Saturday & Sunday we have no All Weather flat racing ,so its going be another quiet few days , with no possible bets till Monday !!

On a positive note it has been another winning week ,one bet and one winner ,with Sharp Shoes winning on Wednesday at 11-4 in selling stakes, making this the 5TH winning week this year from eight weeks.

Good start to the month !!

Good start to the month with Sharp Shoes winning nicely at 11-4 in five furlong selling stakes at Wolverhampton, for tidy  £330 / 3.30 profit on the day,also nice to see champion jockey Paul Hanagan come back with winner .

On to Thursday's racing ,two All Weather cards at Southwell and Kempton and very decent card at Meydan, though after studying all three cards there are no good betting opportunities on Thursday.

Meydan stage very high quality meeting ,which includes no less than five group races ,including the return of Twice Over & Poets Voice,though these are very interesting races,there are no suitable betting opportunities on the card.It will just be watching brief on Thursday !!















Wednesdays best bets!!

Two All Weather cards on Wednesday at Wolverhampton & Kempton ,going concentrate on the 5 furlong selling stakes at Wolverhampton.


5F SELLING STAKES CLASS 5 WOLVERHAMPTON 3.30
SHARP SHOES :Won twice towards the end 2010 season.Including over C&D at Wolverhampton back in December winning class 6 handicap, bolted up that day winning by easy 4 lenghs.Been running consistently this year at Southwell without winning ,will be suited returning to Wolverhampton and dropping back into selling company.


VERDICT : Ridley Didley looks danger on his win in claimer at Southwell back in January beating both Sharp Shoes & Residency and looks well treated in this seller receiving 5lb off his main two rivals.SHARP SHOES was very impressive winner over C&D in December and returns to Wolverhampton for first time since that win .Looks sure go well with Paul Hanagan looking very positive Jockey booking.

Thoughts of March & April !!!

Start of another month as we move into March ,not great deal happening on the first day of the month with no suitable betting opportunities at Lingfield.


January and February are normally my quietest months of the year ,though been bit disappointed with the lack of decent betting opportunities on All Weather this winter,field sizes being the main problem, hopefully there will be few more opportunities in March.


Only just over four weeks away to the start of flat turf season ,though April can be tricky month with the season just getting under way ,we should at least have plenty more betting opportunities.

Weekly / Monthly review !!

Saturdays bet on Hitchens was bit disappointing only finishing fifth after being well supported in market 4-1 into 5-2.


Though only beaten one and half lenghs in blanket finish,no real excuses had good position turning for home in forth place, went slightly wide round the bend, though never picked up in the straight.Just not good enough on the day .


Not the greatest week with loss - £210 / 2.10 from two bets ,though overall quite happy how the first two months of year have gone.January and February are never the easiest months for making profits,so quite satisfied to have made profits both months.


February has been fairly good month with PROFIT + £850 / 8.50 pts ,With limited betting opportunities on the All Weather just 9 bets in total this month.There have been one or two disappointments ,though overall thats reasonable profit from 9 bets .
