Good finish to the year with SHAWKANTAGO winning the 5 furlong claiming stakes at Southwell on Friday at 9-2 for £268.00 profit.
December has been quiet month with suitable betting opportunities on All Weather very thin on the ground ,though no complaints with small profit on the month with two winners from five bets for £155.00 profit .
Overall this has been the worse year since the blog started in February 2010 ,though having been £1373 down at the end of June.Its been good finish to the year finishing with small profit £674 .
The first 6 months of the year have to be described as awful with only one winner from 22 bets ,though since August there has been massive improvement with 16 winners from 35 bets.Not great year for blog ,though this has been the fourth consecutive winning year since blog started in February 2010.
The main reason for improvement has been concentrating on better quality races on the flat ,listed and group races have been particularly profitable since August .
In the past the claiming races have always been very profitable for the blog,though for some reason this season they never really fired with loss £179.00 .
In 2014 I will mainly be concentrating on Listed & group races ,though there will be few bets in claiming races,as these races have done well for the blog in the past .I will also be focusing more on International graded races ,starting with Meydan Carnival in January .
My other blog http://timefordouble.blogspot.co.uk/ never really got started last year due to time restraints ,though from January 2014 I will have lot more time and there will be regular blog posts .Hopefully the each-way doubles will show some decent profits in 2014 .
