Friday saw me returning to Nottingham for the Newsletter Free Tip. In truth there was nothing that rocked my boat at Romford anyway.
I plumped for Bold Three again thought 5/2 was too big as I expected him to come forward from last weeks run. He was stopped twice in the race but in truth he was never going to beat Bridge Honcho who led and has returned to top form. My subscribers tip was also at Nottingham Romeo Recruit who was also expected to improve following a long lay off from injury. He pressed the winner Calzaghe Davy until the third bend before blowing up through lack of racing. He will be winning soon enough. So it wasn’t the best of nights but that’s dog racing!
Saturday saw the usual RPGTV fare that fails to excite this greyhound tipster. So no bets were advised, while I eagerly watched the coverage of the Premier Irish Puppy competition Comerford Cakes at Shelbourne Park via the streaming on 24 dogs. There was two dogs that took my eye and they will be posted as ante post advice on Saturday before the next round.
Same Sunday routine – kennel visit, nice cooked breakfast, phone call from Angus the dog my Henlow expert. I was looking for inspiration and a juicy priced winner. Angus labelled the card boring, highlighting a couple of shorties that would win. I highlighted one bet at 6/4 in the first race Bodell Lizzie for subscribers early doors but held it back to see if we could get a better price. No we couldn’t it turned out and we missed out as my fancy was well backed before and after my advice was sent out. It was sent off odds on 4/5 and duly won like an odds on shot by 9 lengths. Think everyone was pleased bar B365!!
Monday saw a break for the normal routine of phone calls and videos, as it’s time for the GMT to recharge his batteries with a week in the sunshine. So I spent today preparing to jet off tomorrow. I did however have one eye on the runners tonight, and to my surprise Mondays are turning into good nights for open class racing, now Coventry are racing alongside Romford and Nottingham. The bookmakers are also getting involved and pricing up the races. So off we went to Coventry for my selection Ballymac Budget looked the best bet on the card and so it turned out, pinging out and leading all the way. You must add Boylesports to your accounts held – sponsors of Coventry track are pricing up lots of races at the track.
Tuesday Mrs GMT and I jetted off to warmer climbs, didn’t much like the idea of a cold snap that was approaching! The trip was financed by my friends the bookmakers and I thank them for their generosity! So I’m now writing this newsletter from my lounger by the pool! One of the spots where the wifi works very well where we are staying. I stuck to Coventry for my advice to subscribers taking on the favourite with Angie Kibble’s Builders Bolt but alas the Bolt ran out of steam and was picked up close home. Nothing else’s for it but to celebrate the loss with another bottle of wine to compliment our lovely meal this evening.
Even on holiday the GMT is busy working looking to keep my subscribers happy along with them at Betfan towers. Two dogs were tipped up for tonight’s Sky meeting. Take the Crown in the Puppy Race (good info) and Bold Three ( consolation for Friday). My biggest problem was backing them as my iPad betting apps were no help abroad. My next task was to sort out dinner tonight around finding a bar to watch our selections perform. To compound matters my own bitch Dear Holly was running in an owners bonus race at Romford on RPGTV. My two tips won not before the first had a non runner in his race which made no difference to the result but a huge difference from the 4/1 we were on at, against the SP of 7/4 which he was returned. So instead of a 12 point gain we only were credited with 5.75 Fed up with non runners in races that I tip one that is very well backed (conspiracy theory). The second tip duly won with no non runner affecting the price so the night saw us 10.75 up. However my bitch unusually missed the break and failed to complete a memorable treble!!
Hove on a Thursday seems to feature many of the same dogs, Henlow was an all graded card, no call from Angus the dog, so no bet there. I studied the Hove card closely on my hotel balcony and found two bets for my loyal band of followers. Before Mrs GMT and I hit Las Americas I sent out my Essex Vase ante post advice. We had a very good night on the town, However the punting night turned into the reverse of the night before. No excuses the dogs I selected had every chance but we’re not good enough on the night to win. But again were still comfortably in front for another month.
Free Tip…….well this week sees all six heats of the Essex Vase priced up early.
But instead I will give you my main fancy for the outright honours in this three round competition.
Mark Wallis dog Blonde Razor loves the Essex track and 575 metres trip, the St Leger distance was a tad to far for him recently. This is his distance and I expect him to close.
