Just a quick update, been a bit lazy updating this past few days. Apologies for that. I will update Saturday’s results at some stage.

Anyways we have decided to create a new blog to deal with the Betfair adventure it can be located here or over on the right hand side.

This new blog will have far more informative (hopefully) tips than my own efforts over the past six weeks, I’m aware that’s not saying much. There are two up today however to make life easier we will document results from tomorrow April Fools Day!

I’ll continue to update this blog with my own ramblings now and again.

Cheers Rich

Saturday 27th

Tips for today. These are seperate to any other project and will probably the last few tips I partake in on my own for a while. All my energies will be going into that project from now on.

  • 2.15 2PT E/W Kerada 6/1 – Booking of Geragty made mind up on this. Though there are a number of others who are interesting Queen Poline being the main one.
  • 3.10 1PT E/W Viva Vettori 16/1 – Trends pick, decent win last time out. Bit of a longshot though ..
  • 3.10 1PT E/W Albaqaa 14/1 – Plucked from a hat, ground should suit. Was going to pick Mia’s Boy also but decided against it. I wouldn’t be backing Penitent at 3/1 though, I’d be a layer at that price (watch that one win now)
  • 5.45 2PT E/W Gio Ponti 6/1 – In my opinion it’s the best horse in race simples.


I know I was going to leave Meydan alone but Gio Ponti in my opinion is a cut above his rivals here in my opinion and at 6/1 is a stand out price. I’ll of course be cheering Gitano Hernando on at the same time, so I’d definitely settle for a 1-2 on these pair.

There’s a number of other horses I’ve got my eye on but they are all price dependent and ideally I want to see what the market does first before taking the plunge. The 3.25 at Kempton is definitely a race which I’ll be keen to see where the money heads as the one I like the most Suits Me I’d rather have a bit more than 6/4 with a couple of decent horses in opposition. The others I like at the minute at Kempton are Tiddliwinks in the 2.20 and Love Delta in the 5.10 but again it depends on the price. Osric in the 3.20 at Newbury fits the same boat as I think it will win. It’s quite possible I’ll have a little treble on those three – as per normal one will then lose.

I have also had a football related bet picked up from a Facebook page. Got to keep my fingers in as many pies 😉

Double on these two under/overs pays 2.60/1

Lincoln v Northampton – Over 2.5

Brentford v Leyton Orient – Under 2.5

As for the Mighty Town, well today their away at Swansea who were thumped 5-1 last time out, however if Ipswich play anything like they did on Tuesday night the bet would definitely be Swansea and probably to nil.

 Best in race?

Best of luck.

The new project

So I’ve been talking about this new project a fair bit lately, well tomorrow it kicks off the plan is to deposit £100 into a Betfair account and from there hopefully turn it into a fair bit more. I’ll be participating in this project with another guy who to be fair has more knowledge of the game so it will only benefit myself, he’s a good looking bloke aswell so I’ve attached a photo for you all.


As far as the blog goes, it’s quite possible we’ll either take over this one, I’ll let him post his random boring thoughts also or create another and blog about the project on their only, linking it with this one, no doubt I’ll have a few bets which the partner in crime doesn’t agree with. I’ll keep you informed regards that from tomorrow .. one thing the past month has told me is how useful these can be in limiting losses, I was never one to track every bet but now through the advent of the blog that’s something that’s become mandatory. It’s also handy as I’ve managed to get a few decent football related bets from other blogs so cheers for all the other blogs on the right! 

As for yesterday a loss of 0.65PT which was somewhat disappointing, red days are the norm but at least Duneen Dream managed to gets its nose infront to win the 7.50, which softened the blow. Off work for 5 nights from the morning so it will be nice to sit down and watch Doncaster and Meydan tomorrow with a few cans. Birthday parties on Sunday – I always seem to be at birthday parties! 

Will have some bets up for tomorrow later.

2 at Wolves

Its impossible updating this by mobile anyhow, two 1pt each way shots. 7.40 duneen dream 5/1, 9.10 turf time 11/2

F for Friday

So I was going to have a dry few days, then I received an email from someone regarding today’s and Saturday’s racing and lo and behold I decided to take a look and see if there’s anything of interest. As usual having looked at , and the morning’s papers (perk of working where I do!) for a while and divulged said email I’ve come up with the following. I’ve taken current prices as I don’t plan on being awake for any of the day.

  • 2PT E/W 2.55 Rebecca’s Choice 5/1
  • 2PT WIN 3.20 Newman des Plages 3.83 Betfair
  • 1PT WIN 4.05 Sir Kezbaah 3.2 Betfair

I’ve also highlighted four or five at Wolverhampton later, but as normal will see how these fare firstly before taking them on. I’ve also backed a live outsider for the Lincoln based on trends and at 16/1 it has a decent each way shot. The price of the favourite has plummeted somewhat last few days so some people will be sitting pretty on him. As for the Dubai World Cup it’s likely to be a watch for me although my new partner in crime has backed Gitano Hernando in from about 12s to its current price, therefore I’ll be cheering that one on.

Payday today also which is nice, won’t last long mind – M.O.T on car due next week  – I’d be surprised if it passes any test let alone all of them, Deposit on Holiday needs paying and the youngest is 5 on Sunday so presents will have to be bought. I’ve managed to get the missus a little present though which will keep her sweet for a while!

Happy hunting all and hopefully Wolves later will add to a positive day!
