Weekly Results Round Up

Disappointing start to 2013 with both bets running very poorly this week .The first bet was on Thursday on Hardy Red in 6 furlong claiming stakes at Wolverhampton.

Really disappointing effort from Hardy Red after being heavily supported in the market 11-4 into 5-4 ,though was in trouble long way out weakening quickly in the straight ,finishing last of 4 and £200 / 2.00 loss on the race.

Saturday's bet on Officer In Command in 10 furlong classified claiming stakes at Lingfield ,had no real excuses just never picked up in straight finishing sixth, most disappointing for another £200 loss .

Overall not good start to the year with £400 loss on the week ,though these bad weeks will happen now and again .Long term profits are what count in this game and hopefully we can bounce back next week .


LOSS - £400 / 4.00 PTS 

LOSS £400 / 4.00 PTS 

Saturday 5th January claiming stakes bet

Early start on Saturday at Lingfield with the first race on the card 10 furlong 0-70 classified claiming stakes at 11.50 .

Nine runners declared for 10 furlong classified stakes on poly track at Lingfield .This looks competitive race with five course winners .The four main contenders look to be Officer In Command ,Carter ,Daniel Thomas & Resplendent Alpha .

OFFICER IN COMMAND : Three time course & distance winner at Lingfield , won 10 furlong seller in July .Been running consistently since finishing placed three times .Disappointing run last time in handicap .though has fair record in claiming company (3212) .Should go well with cheek pieces refitted .

CARTER : Won four times in 2011 in handicap company ,though disappointing in five starts last year .Looks well treated at the weights and drops into claiming company for first time .

DANIEL THOMAS : Won seven times in 2012 and goes particularly well here at Lingfield with 6 course wins .Won 10 furlong seller last time over course & distance winning in good style .This looks stronger race ,though can't be ruled out in wide open race.

RESPLENDENT ALPHA : Consistent sort ,won three times in 2012 the last win coming over course & distance in seller three weeks ago .Goes well at this track and should be thereabouts off bottom weight .

VERDICT : Carter is 4LB clear on official handicap ratings ,though is hard to assess after some poor efforts recently .Will need to bounce back in first time blinkers ,though there remains big question mark .

OFFICER IN COMMAND has been running well in handicap company and last three wins came over this course & distance .Should also be suited returning to claiming company and can win open looking race .

Of the others both Daniel Thomas & Resplendent Alpha should be thereabouts ,though are taking on stronger opposition here.

Quick Update

Disappointing result on Thursday with Hardy Red running shocker in 6 furlong claiming stakes at Wolverhampton.After being very well supported in the market 11-4 into 5-4 ,though weakened very quickly in the straight finishing well beaten last of 4.For £200 loss on the race.

Moving on to Friday we have 5 furlong claiming stakes at  Wolverhampton 4.00 .Master of disguise is now non runner leaving just 7 runners .

Favourite Drawnfromthepast looks solid here after winning his last two claiming races and looks well treated at the weights ,though with 6 course and distance winners in the race looks poor value at around 5-4 .

Of the others three time course winner Mother Jones also looked possible each-way option off bottom weight (7 stone 13lb) ,goes particularly well here at Wolverhampton ,though will need to bounce back after disappointing run at Lingfield yesterday.

Not betting race for me with too many question marks about the seven ruuners,though I do expect to be back in action tomorrow with interesting 10 furlong classified claiming stakes at Lingfield .

Thursday January 3rd Claiming Bet !!!

On Thursday we have 6 furlong three year old claiming stakes on poly track at Wolverhampton .Another small field with just five runners declared .

Just five runners declared for 0-75 three year old classified claiming stakes at Wolverhampton .On official handicap figures this looks three horse race between Hardy Red , Hidden Coin & Windforpower .

HARDY RED : Won 6 furlong handicap at Ffos Las on heavy ground off mark 70 in September .Returned to form last week when just touched off in 7 furlong claimer at Wolverhampton .Should go well dropping back to 6 furlongs .

HIDDEN COIN :Won 6 furlong maiden on the turf at Redcar in May , though well beaten on next two starts in better company .Makes  poly track debut and not easy to assess on his first start for nearly 6 months .

WINDFORPOWER : Consistent sort ,won two races over 5 furlongs at Lingfield ,including winning weak looking 4 runner seller last time .Not badly treated off bottom weight ,though this looks stronger race.

VERDICT : This looks tight little race on official handicap ratings, with little to choose between the three main contenders. 

HARDY RED ran well here last Thursday in claimer over 7 furlongs and should be suited returning to this shorter trip .Odds around 11-4 look very fair value in this small field .

Hidden Coin looks main danger if he can reproduce his turf form from last season ,though there has to be question mark about his fitness after six month break .

2PT @ 11-4 BET VICTOR 
(UNPLACED SP 5-4 LOSS -£200 / 2.00PTS)

Update at 11.45 now four runner race with Be On The Bell now non runner bet will go down as 2PT win bet .

Quick Update on Wednesday January 2nd !!!

On Wednesday we have 1 mile claiming stakes at Wolverhampton ,the favourite Desert Vision goes particularly well in this grade having won two claimers over course & distance recently .Also finished good third last time in class two handicap at Wolverhampton .

This doesn't look the strongest claimer ,with question marks about most of the opposition and Desert Vision should be difficult to beat here ,though not betting race for me at around the 6-4 mark .

Hopefully we should be back in action later in the week ,though no bets on Wednesday .

Review of 2012 !!!

This has been quiet week with just the one bet on Thursday. Hardy Red in two year old 7 furlong claiming stakes at Wolverhampton ,finishing second at 11-4 for £16.00 loss on the week .

With only four runners declared for 10 furlong claiming stakes ,there will no claiming bet on Sunday at Lingfield .With no claimers scheduled for Monday either, that brings an end to this years claiming bets .

Overall December has been decent month with three winners & five seconds from 8 bets for £716.00 profit on the month .The only month with bigger profit in 2012 was January with £824 profit .

Having missed almost two months due to family illness, the figures have been quite satisfactory for the blog this year with £1986 profit .Seven winning months out ten .With + 29.87 % return on investment. The only real bad month being August with £320.00 loss .

The blog has now been running three years with profits totalling £7594 .With specializing on claiming races this year ,there was always going to be reduction in number of bets, though the quality has improved greatly on last year, with far more consistency and over double the profit .

In January 2013 I will be launching my second blog TIME FOR DOUBLE .In this blog I will be specializing in non handicap each-way doubles ,In total there should be around 120 bets with the claiming bets and each-way doubles .

With the same sort principles on both blogs. I'm confident the profits will again increase in 2013 .

2010 :312 BETS 88 WINNERS)PROFIT + £4670/46.70 PTS
2011 :86 BETS ) 18 WINNERS)PROFIT + £938 / 9.38 PTS
2012 :56 BETS ) 16 WINNERS)PROFIT + £1986 / 19.86 PTS
