Well I don’t think we learnt a great deal from the classic trials at Newmarket and with Newbury Abandoned and the second days filly and colts trials moved to Chelmsfords Polytrack surface it’s all best ignored from a betting point of view.
Never the less all my tipping services managed to find decent winners last week at value for money prices with Betting Opportunity landing a cracking win double on Saturday.
Regular readers will know I have been making noises regarding a new way of betting and staking that i personally use on Betfair and I can report I made my first losing bet for 3 months on Monday when Nicholascopernicus got turned over at Huntingdon however the profits are beyond my wildest dreams since the start of the year as losers can’t effect overall profit using my simple but very clever staking plan.
Without revealing too much I can tell you that my system is so simple yet effective and can actually be used for any form of betting using the Betfair exchange.
The thing is most tipsters even the young ones that have now graduated to running their own services still follow outdated betting techniques passed down over time from people I call the old gurus spouting nonsense about winner finding.
You know the kind of stuff about being in with certain stables and trainers and knowing when horses are being lined up for a coup. The one about the horse that’s not trying today and even guessing which races are minimum or maximum bets.
This is all methodology passed down through the ages from these gurus who were masters of betting ten, twenty, thirty or forty years ago but folks time moves on and every thing changes. Now I’m no spring chicken but I have always moved with the times and in any business not just betting if you mark time and stand still you will only go backwards. My motto is always stay a step ahead of the competition.
The Premier league enters the home straight and now with Leicester having Vardy banned I firmly believe that Tottenham can catch them and prevent the Foxes fairytale ending and believe me I’m having trouble writing this being a life long Gooner.
We have a lovely days racing at Epsom for their Spring meeting and Howies Hottie goes in the 3.40 a 10 furlong competitive handicap. The selection is What About Carlo who is a course and distance winner who loves a bit of cut in the ground and I have a feeling there might be a bit of improvement in the gelding.
Pushkins Museum trainer R.Fahey – Has been running on the all weather and there could be more to come back on turf.
Lewisham trainer J.Jenkins – A very easy winner last week he’s still on a very attractive mark.
The Hooded Claw trainer T.Easterby – Ran well on seasonal appearance and will be fitter next time out
Lexington Times trainer R.Hannon – Gradually dropping in the handicap and the trainer is bound to find an opening for him.
Secret Look trainer E.McMahon – A winner for this column on Monday at Windsor the gelding is still on a winnable mark.
Back next Wednesday be lucky.
