Well its been a poor month on my tipping services and in particular with my Eye-Catchers where it has been a very frustrating couple of weeks even if we did find winners in Dakota City at 7/2 and Idol Deputy at 14/1.
The most annoying thing was having Moonlight Venture on my list of eye-catchers and every time I put it up as a bet it gets turned over and every time I ignore it, it romps in including yesterday at Southwell when he was available at 16/1 for those that took an early price.
Still as I have told you all time and time again the best time to join a proven service is when they have been on a bad run not after you hear they have had it spark off.
I was reading an article yesterday about Tony Bloom who is now reckoned to be one of the wealthiest people in Britain with a fortune now estimated to be in the billions. Now the interesting thing about this is it nearly all comes from his professional gambling operations.
He is based at Camden in the Iceworks building where he conducts all his betting activities and works with a group of people who must sign something similar to the official secrets act before they are allowed to work for the organisation.
Tony bets mainly on football and cricket using the Asian handicaps. He has got this form of betting down to a fine art and once his number crunchers send up the stats from their Exeter office the bets are planned and executed.
As most of Tonys profits come from what we call wincome rather than income he does not have to pay tax however this very generous man gives very large amounts to charity in particular to find a cure for multiple sclerosis.
Rumour has it that he struck one of his biggest ever bets on France to win the 1998 world cup where they beat Brazil 3-0 in the final. This was at the time he was working for Victor Chandler who also availed themselves of this wager and the winnings kept Chandlers afloat otherwise there would be no Bet Victor trading today.
You may not know Tonys company Starlizzard also operate an advisory football service however he won’t entertain you unless you have around 2 million to invest. So if you have that laying under the mattress I have Tonys private email and phone number that I can pass on to you.
One I fancy for Howies Hottie runs in the 7.50 Kempton it’s Muzaahim from Kevin Morgans yard. The gelding was once owned by Hamdam Al Maktoum and the stable landed a gamble with a similar type who once owned by the Sheik and I’m hoping this one can follow suit.
Bassingstoke trainer D.Loughnane – On a very lenient mark and goes very well at Southwell.
Lewisham trainer J.Jenkins – Only just touched off at Wolverhampton last week.
Wildomar trainer P.Hiatt – Tailed off last week however he is very well handicapped and those are the types who pop up at massive prices.
Affair D Honeur trainer H.Whittington – Ran on from the back in big handicap hurdle and could have improvement.
Starchitect trainer D.Pipe – Ran in the same race finishing 2nd after blunder at the last and could be very well in off current mark.
Back next Wednesday be lucky.
