Have a good one tonight and we can look forward to a prosperous 2010.

Xmas update

I think the new years resolution will be never to leave my blog so badly unattended again!

Its been a busy Xmas period personally and the betting has been up and down like a yo yo. Thankfully the last few days ended on a high with a 3 point win for the Legends today at 9/1. Chaninbar winning at Taunton. Also a good winner for Probandit today with Pegasus Again (7/1). Pity it was on minimum stakes.

Also had a bit of luck yesterday when I backed the Legends bet Joncol £150 ew instead of £150 to win in error. It finished 3rd. However I would have been kicking the dog if it had not placed!

Will double check the figures later to make sure I haven't made any errors. Back to normal updates tomorrow!

A Christmas gift from the Legends

Like most Legends followers pain was felt as the first of today's bets, a 3 pointer, NightJar (9/4) finished down in 3rd. However it didn't take long for the pain to go as the next race produced a winner . Mr Funshine (19.93 win & 4.75 place on Betfair) won the 1.25 Southwell to leave me in good shape going into the xmas break.

In the same race Probandits' bet ThoughtsofStardom (4/1) was unlucky not to place, finishing 4th.

Equines' bet Jackie Kiely (9/1 to 13/2) lost by a neck in the 2.25 but we got the place money.

A busy Monday

Got to the stage in work where I am in xmas mode now. Cannot be arsed doing anything...I just want off!

Managed a profit today with a nicely priced winner from Equine. L'Hirondelle (9/1 to 7/1) beat off Friday nights Equine winner, Seek The Fair Land, by short head to take the spoils at the 4.05 Kempton.

Not so good for the Legends though. Kingsgate Castle (100/30) might have saved the day if the horse had started better.

Nice recovery

Really nice to report some solid profit on the week at last. Both the Legends and Probandit scored today. Two winners for the Legends including a 4 point bet. Pavillion Bleu (9/2 -4/1) and Topcroft (13/8 to 6/4) was the 4 pointer.

Single race covered by Probandit with Glen Lass winning at 9/4.

A winning day turns to a losing night

Thought I had a bit of profit to report today after the Legends picked an early winner,Zazamix (SP 7/2) at Bangor. Their second bet Gentle Ranger 8/1 came damn close to making it a great day in the 2.35 Newbury.

Unfortunately Equine's evening bets put a dampener on the day. Two reasonable short price bets including a 4/6 favourite at Kempton failed to produce even a close thing. The Equine all weather season has certainly not shot out of the starting blocks.

So a little bit depressing after a couple of really solid months...but I am hopeful the quality of the services I follow will shine through.

Joy and pain

Probandit provided the joy with Nickel Silver (SP 9/1) scoring in a 3 horse dutch in the 1.10 at Southwell.

Meanwhile the Legends provided the pain with 9 points lost on the day to continue a poor start to December. Colorus (9/2) in the same race that Probandit gambled in came closest..coming in 2nd.

Downward slope

Could do with a nice profitable day to put a halt on the run I am on. No luck today with bets from Probandit and the Legends.

The Legends opted for a win bet on Home (9/1) and also staked it in a small double with Iguacu (5/2) in the previous race. The main bet finished in 3rd , while Iguacu finished well down in 7th.

Probandit also bet at Wolverhampton with two in the 4.20. The dreaded second and third place though with Bavarica (9/1) picking up some place money.

Week end update

Updating for Saturday and Sunday below. Hasn't been the greatest last 8 or 9 days but nothing too serious. Decided not to continue with 4PA on Saturday morning. For the second time in a few weeks I didn't like the look of the bets (this time a 4/6 and a 2/7 double) so didn't bet on them (only one part of the double won anyhow). Opting out of bets tells me I'm not comfortable with the therefore no point continuing.

Another shocker

The day started well with a winner for the Legends with Weird Al (SP 11/4) winning the first at Cheltenham. However just like yesterday the lowest odds bet was the only winner of the day. Nothing from the next 6 bets.

Probandit started the day poorly with the loss of 2 points in the 12.30 at Southwell. Thankfully Thoughtsofstardom (3/1) in the 1.40 Southwell saved the day from a whitewash.

With the Probandit tip winning the 1.40 it meant that the Equine tip Desert Dust (13/2) in the same race didn't score. Hugh Taylor again caused damage to the price by tipping it earlier at 10/1.

Another big day tomorrow expected and again I can only hope the rollercoaster starts climbing again.

Lean spell

Not the most enjoyable week so far with really only backwards progress since Saturday.

Today was fairly busy with 3 services having a bet.

Nothing from 4PA or Probandit, both on small stakes.

We did get a winner from the Legends with Kerada (5/2 SP) winning at Huntingdon. Unfortunately it was the lowest odds bet of the six on the day.

Expecting a busy weekend so hopefully I can get the week back on track.

Back to work

After my weekend away it was back to the rat race.

Small Profit on the day with Probandit finding a winner, in a dutched race, with Young Dottie (9/1 to 8/1). I think it was available at 16/1 earlier in the day before Hugh Taylor tipped it.

The Legends managed a place from 2 races. Waahej (15/2 to 6/1) finishing 3rd at Wolverhampton.

Back to winning ways

4PA had a rare midweek gamble at Fairyhouse and finally got the service going for me. Pandorama (5/1 - 4/1) was the winning bet with Sweeps Hill (9/2) finishing 4th in the previous race despite having the legend AP on board.

The Legends great form on the all weather continued tonight. Daddy's Gift (15/2 - 7-1) finished like a train to win the 8.50 Kempton. Mirage Dore (9/2) finished down in 6th in the early race at Catterick.

Betfair Bonanza - Saturday review

Once again Saturday's bets left me quaking in my boots. At 3.25 I was looking down the barrel of a heavy loss. It is probably because I have time to follow each bet at the weekend that causes the nervousness..during the week the bets are placed and i get on with my work.

However once again the Legends pulled off a major coup by tipping Beat the Boys in the 3.25 Newcastle (19.97 win and 5.50 place on Betfair). Earlier Fistral Beach (11/2) had run well for a 2nd, but when Pasco (9/2) was beaten into 2nd in the 2.05 Newbury after trading at as low as 1.1 or even lower I thought my luck was out for the day.

Probandit came close to a win with last weekends big winner Perlachy (11/4) only managing 2nd.

4Pa dropped another 2 points this weekend to leave me unconvinced about the service. I will soldier on with it however.

Results from Saturday

  • Legends.............Profit of £634.98
  • Probandit...........Loss of £100.00
  • 4PA...................Loss of £100.00

Friday update

Heavy night last night so unable to update. I can only presume I was drinking petrol last night judging by the way I feel this morning.

Yesterday saw a winner for the Legends with Rivaliste (7/4) at Newbury , followed by 3 losers which left me exactly break even.

Busy day for Probandit with 4 bets although they were only small stakes. One place out of the 4 bets being SouthandWest (4/1-7/2) leaving me with a small loss.

Results from Friday

  • Legends.............Profit of £Nil
  • Probandit...........Loss of £161.25

And more profits!

The Legends had a single winner from 4 bets today and the way it was staked was enough for me to bag a profit. Exmoor Ranger (4/1) winning the 2.40 Newbury.

Wednesday, 25 November 2009

Another profitable day

It was the turn of Probandit to strike this afternoon. Single bet Dancing Welcome (7/2) winning the 2pm at Lingfield.

After yesterdays top picks on the all weather the Legends were out of luck with Cerito (8/1-15/2) finishing well down the field at Kempton.

Another big day trading after losses the last two days to put me back in front on the week. Sticking with it and keeping my far all is going well.

All weather Switch

A switch to the all weather track was the decision of JC from the Legends today. Good choice! The Legends came very close to pulling off 3 bets out of 3.

First Swallow (was late getting the bet on and managed to grab 10/1, though advised was 7/1) was up against the single Probandit bet of the day Dickie Le Davoir (13/2 -6/1). The Legends bet made all to get me off to a great start. The next bet Lost Soldier Three (7/2) was beaten by a head. And to complete a great day Great Charm (6/1) won the last at Southwell.

Poor Sunday

No late night bet to save me on Sunday.

Slight dip in form for the Legends with another 7 points dropped. This leaves my total on the weeks betting at a slight loss of £92 or so, which is a pity after such a good start.
On a brighter note another couple of hundred pounds trading today on the football. Trading account now standing at £1854.90 for November and I still feel I am only messing about on it when I have time.

Last race reprieve again!

Seemed to be heading for a horrible Saturday again. Up pops Probandit with a 14 /1 winner Periachy and a place in the same race, 9.15 Wolverhampton, for Bel Cantor (mostly 6-1) and the day ends in profit. Earlier Probandit also had a winner for Fantasy Fighter (7/2) and a place for Forest Dane (3/1) at Lingfield.

Horrible day for the Legends dropping 11 points despite a good start with Sa Suffit (2/1) winning in the first bet.

4PA's bet came though at 8.20 this morning. Like any normal person I was still tucked up in bed at this time on a Saturday morning. The bet was Kauto Star! Not a bet for me. Yes it won and I missed out on the profit..but I will be hoping for much better from this service. It was the equivalent of a football tipster tipping Chelsea to beat Wolves today.

Also of note today was the closure of my VC bet account today without even the decency of a phone call or email. I guess from what I have read elsewhere it was inevitable." No winning accounts wanted thank you! Regards Victor"

Results from Saturday

  • Probandit.........Profit of £613.58
  • Legends...........Loss of £550.00

Winner in the last race

Seems to happen quite a lot..this last bet of the day winner. Nevertheless I was well pleased to check the results to see Bidable (5/1) had won at the last race at Wolverhampton.

However not a winning day in total as the Legends were out of luck with 4 bets today.

Slow day

Looking forward to the weekend..had a busy week in work so far.

No luck today with both bets failing to produce a profit. Baseball Ted (2/1) pulled up at Wincanton for the Legends with Seek the Fair Land (5/1) finishing 4th, despite being backed down to 3/1 before the off, for Probandit.

Midweek update

No luck today with small losses for both services in action.

Two bets for the Legends with Hockenheim (100/30) coming closest with a 2nd at Market Raisen.

For Probandit the day's betting was over early with bets in the 12.30 and 1.00 Lingfield meet. Places in each race for If I were a boy (7/1 -6/1) and Ramamara (3/1) with a higher stake on the place.

Small trading profit today though was going to cover France against Ireland. Thankfully I didn't as the Irish scoring first would have put me in some trouble. I am pretty sure Mr Henry won't be getting any Guinness bought for him next time he is in Dublin!

Results from Wednesday
  • Legends...........Loss of £200.00

Stunning Legends

Another absolutely tremendous day from the Legends. 3 bets and 2 winners. Elusive Flame winning at an SP of 8/1 followed up 30 minutes later with Punching winning at 7/2.

Really enjoying this run at the moment..though it give me nothing to complain about!

Out of luck

The run of luck took a hopefully brief break today. Only the Legends in action today and with the first 3 bets failing to score I could only hope for another last bet recovery. It came close as well with Baltimore Patriot (10/1) finishing in a close 2nd at Wolverhampton.

Got a bit of a shock when I checked my VC account today( amazingly they haven't closed me down!) to see the withdrawal from the first past the post disqualified winner on Saturday cancelled and the bet shown as a loser. Thankfully it was just a blip on the new cash system they have in place and the winning were re-credited.

Kyber kim

Kyber Kim (14/1 - 12/1) ran a great race to bring another good profit for the Legends. I decided against the odds on treble they tipped.

4PA tipped Raise your Heart (10/1) in the same race which finished last to bring to a close a very disappointing weekend for them.

Terrible day...great night!

Going into the evening bets I had managed one place at 8/1 for the Legends. Was cursing myself for getting involved with Saturday betting again. 3 Losers for 4PA, 1 for Probandit, and 2 for the Legends including a 4 point bet faller!

The fat lady was yet to sing! A disqualified winner for the Legends, Wicked Daze (8/1), in the 8.50 Wolverhampton, on which the bookies (god bless them) paid out on. I also over staked £18 in error on this one too. This was followed by a 9/2 winner for Probandit in the 9.20. Thunderstruck winning by a neck. And just to top it off Anelka's 72 minute deflected winner against Ireland allowed me to trade off to guarantee by betfair trading profits on the day to £710.15.

So a total of £1134.75 profit on a day which looked doomed to failure until very late on. I won't be complaining about my bad luck for a while!

No point making puns about the date. Large number of bets with the Legends festival bets today. You always want to get a winner in the first or second race so you can enjoy the remaining bets. No such luck today!

Also running with PCB's 4 pronged attack as a trial. Not the best start today with a loser at advised prices of 5/1 which was not available at the time of the message. Still hopefully only minor teething problems.

Will update Thursday's single bet below as well. Sorta hoping the weather cancels the races tomorrow!

Midweek point

Another good day thanks to winning bets from both services. Legends made the day with their first bet That's Rhythm (SP 8/1) winning at Bangor. A solid place with the drifter Bonnie Prince Blue (SP 11/2) at Southwell left us with a substantial profit.

Probandit continues to motor along nicely. A winner with Comradeship (4/5). Paul suggested we set an in running trap at 1.13 as this horse had a habit of not wanting to win even though it was well capable. Had a bit of time during the day so set the trap. True to form the horse nearly blew it. In the end it won which was the most profitable result but I did lose a little on the lay. However from what I have read I see exactly why it was suggested. Final bet of the day saw a place at Dundalk for Blaze Brightly (9/4) with the stake weighted towards the place.

At this point of the week I would be sorely tempted to take the profit and close up shop until Monday! Doubt I will though.

Trip to the in-laws

No bets today and no time for trading either as it was time for a full days trip to the in laws!

Not a great week but no real damage done with fairly good profits on trading throughout the week balancing the books.

Small loss

Played all the bets available today .

Three bets from the Legends saw a place for Caoba (13/2 to 11/2) at Wincanton and nothing from the other two bets.

Probandit had one small low staked bet on Invincible Ash (10/1). Came within half a length of a very good win..but at least we got the place money.

  • Probandit.........Profit of £37.50

Minor profit

Good day for Probandit to get his month started. Just the one race covered with Salerosa (4/1) the larger staked bet winning and Avertis (13/2) scraping home for a place.

Elsewhere the Legends went for another forecast today which was unsuccessful. They are risky bets for sure but I suppose when they come off they are worth it. They also backed Mount Hadley (15/2) in the same race Probandit scored on.

The last forecast the Legends gave out gave me somewhere in the region of 65 to 70 points profit. Not so today unfortunately with the two picks Hector's Choice and Wizard of Us finishing in the correct order but this time 2nd last and last! The other bet of the day According to John finished 3rd.

Small loss on the Legends bets today with The Real Deal (10/1 to 9/1) placing , while the earlier bet Captain Marlon (7/2) well beaten.

Change of tactics

Had a bit of email ping pong with the guys from the Legends last night and decided today to start following the rest of the midweek betting days along with the days I already bet. Still a bit nervous about Saturdays even though they have been very good recently , but I will make that decision when the time comes.

One winner from the two Legends bets today with Royal Trooper winning at 4/1. No luck however for Probandit with Grissom (5/1) and a smaller bet on Inter Vision (11/1).

After such a good month for the Tipping Legends I had an undisciplined end of month gamble. Decided to cover 3 of their highest odds bets today. Shouldhavehadthat (12/1) lost, Sphinx (11/1 to 9/1) won and finally Lord Henry (11/2) placed. Looks like luck was with me as the other tips didn't score. Wouldn't recommend a breach in discipline though to anyone following the tipsters as today I could have easily picked the wrong bets to back and might have ended up with a bad loss on the day.

Thursday & Friday update

Hasn't been the greatest week following the tipsters..however with my luck (skill?) from trading I have mopped up the betting losses and made a profit. Still tired from last night so just updating the results.

Losing day

Only a couple of bets today. Probandit went for the 6/4 favourite Hawkeyethenoo who finished 4th. The Legends managed a 3rd with Alanbrooke (4/1). Unfortunately it was a win bet.

Could be a struggle to get bets on tomorrow with various meetings staggered throughout the day (the last one at 8pm..arggghh) but hopefully I'll get a spare 5 minutes.

Missed out again

Missed out on another day of great tipping by the Legends, with Rowe Park winning at 4/1 to bring in most of the 18 points profit on the day.

Probandit provided 3 tips in 2 races. We'll Deal Again (100/30) came closest finishing 2nd at Southwell.

It's going to be a little bit quiet on the tipping front with Equine not starting up until December and obviously the news I received yesterday. I made a couple of hundred pounds tonight trading which means I have only had one minor days loss since I started playing around with it. Possibly in November I will start posting up the daily figures.

No bets today

No bets today and only a little bit of trading done on the Reading match...all green with most of the second half left.

However today I was thrown out of the Form Analyst. Surely a first for a customer to be thrown out by the tipster? Personally I don't think my comments on the blog have been particularly bad considering the run they have been on and the poor performance of the bets....but it appears they were bad enough to get me the boot. Perhaps the dismissal could have been handled a little more professionally though, especially from a service that rates itself so highly on this matter. Anyhow I'm not in the gang anymore and Graeme has refunded my subs. So fair play to him on that point. Line drawn etc etc.

Portfolio wise I am a service down now. Having done a little research there is nothing at the moment that takes my fancy. Trading is one option..but may be too time consuming. No need to rush into anything just yet.

Poor end to the week

No bets ...

My weekend tipsters had no bets today, though I believe I missed another great day for the Legends with 3 winners..two of which came within a 5 minute blitz.

Legends save the week

Crocus Rose (12/1) saved me from a nasty week..winning at Doncaster. Unlike JP I didn't get rule 4 anywhere which was a plus. However unlike JP I made a balls up and thought I had placed £30ew at one of the bookies , when actually it was only £15 ew...£230 down the drain! Only seems to happen on winning bets though!

Also a good steady day from Probandit with Ishiadancer (7/2 to 3/1) winning and later on This Ones For Eddy (8/1 to 15/2) getting backed into 9/4 before being beaten by a short head. Still got the place money on it though.

Added a few more blogs to my Sites of Interest today.Good luck with the blogs.

Results from Friday

  • Legends...........Profit of £770.00

Bookies refund

Dreadful day with only a place for Probandit at 6/1. Elsewhere a whitewash recorded for both the Form Analyst (whose unplaced ew bets are really pi**ing me off now) and the Legends. If last week hadn't been so good my mood would be foul!

No winners

Worst day for a while..though nothing too serious. None of the tips ran particularly well today with three losers for the Legends and just the one for Probandit.

Single bet

Only the one today coming from the Form Analyst with Ours (8-1 to 15/2) coming in 4th.

A loss for the tipsters on the day, but I more than made up for it trading on the football tonight. Surely this trading lark can't be as easy as it seems? Or is it just beginners luck?

Scraped a profit

Another tiny profit to report thanks to Probandit. Points from two of the four bets with Hotham (9/2) winning and a close place for Dolphin Rock (15/2 - 7/1), both at Pontefract.

The Form Analyst's bet Go Amwell (9/1) finished in 4th at Plumpton.

Profitable Pro

Profitable Sunday to round off an epic week. Probandit landed a win with Ingleby Arch (4/1) and a place for Persian Peril (6/1).

Will be nice to have a quiet period with Equine's break. No scrambling for prices at 10.20 tomorrow!

Saturday update

Another good day on Saturday with both Equine and Probandit backing Bertie Southstreet. Managed 11/1 for the Probandit bet and 15/2 down to 5/1 for the Equine bet. The difference in market movement between the two services never more evident!

First minor loss on trading yesterday but this is all part of the learning curve I guess.

Tipping Legends = Cash Dispenser

Absolutely glorious day for the Legends today...with me making just shy of 88 points on the day from their tips alone. Must be a record for me!

Quite a few point bets today and it looked ominous after the first 3 point bet, Parsons Legacy (100/30) only came in 5th. A winner in the next bet, Bolin Judith (4/1), changed the mood. Then came the 5.15 at Cheltenham. The main bet was Mr Apples (sp 9/1), with a saver on Gaora Lane (sp 7/1) followed with a straight forecast bet on the two in that order. I didn't fancy the straight forecast, however bet on it and did the reverse forecast also. Got home from work to discover they had finished exactly how the Legends had predicted! Finally in the last bet Final Victory (9/1) placed 3rd. What a payday! To make it even better all the bets were placed at a certain Australian bookie that ripped me off by refusing to pay out on a BOG price earlier in the year.

Elsewhere, on this busy day, Probandit chalked up a profit coming mostly from a Medicinal Compound (11/4) winner and a betfair place (3.0) for Wellington Square.

Equine failed to score from its single bet today and the Form Analyst's bet Aimigayle (16/1 to 14/1) came very close to scoring at Cheltenham, but finished in 4th.

Quite a day and also hit 5 days in a row profit from trading!

Much better

Winsley Hill or nothing today with it being the only bet of the day for both the Form Analyst (10/1) and the Legends(10/1 to 8/1). Winsley Hill it was thankfully! A much needed boost to the betting bank.

On top of that more trading profits recorded today...4 days in a row....I'm well pleased with the progress so far especially as it is only taking me 5 minutes a day.

Zero bets

Just the one bet today with the Legends picking Sherjawy in the 9.20 at Kempton. The bugger was withdrawn near the no bet.

Equine closes its flat season on Saturday, and it would appear with the few bets given out this week that we are going to be in for a quiet time of it for a while. This gives me more time to improve my trading skills, which again produced a profit today. Two things I have picked up already are: 1. Discipline is needed (which I have). 2. Liquidity on betfair is key to the speed of progression of profits.

Tuesday, 13 October 2009

Small losses

Equine and Probandit produced some small losses today. Daring Dream (8/1) ran poorly for Equine, while Veiled Applause (2/1) placed for Probandit, although he played a higher stake on the place market.

Small profit again from trading today. However I am playing around with the odd pound only to get the feel for it. Resuming with bets from the Legends tomorrow. Hopefully they will improve on the poor results since Saturday.

Equine finds some close season form

Equine found a winner today that was enough to make a profit for me on the day. Dinner Date won at 9/2 to 4/1. This was followed with a place for Kingswinford (12/1 to 11/1).

Elsewhere a loser for the Form Analyst with Drawnfromthepast (11/1) finishing 4th.

Had a bit of spare time in work today and tried my hand at trading. A success! £3.61 profit! I think this is a skill I will have to improve on, though it was nice to see the race show green across the board on betfair.

Lead boots removed

As if by magic all services played on Saturday produced a profit! The question though, is this just a small blip in a continuing poor run or is it a turning point?

Played the Form Analyst's bets on win only Saturday. As I said on Friday placed ew bets are no good to me at the moment. This plan worked well with Beat the Boys winning easily at 6/1. If Silly Wupple hadn't got beaten by a neck in the previous bet it would have been a corker of a day.

Equine also managed a needed win with Theola winning at 3/1.

Finally Probandit made me wait until the 9.15 at Wolverhampton to produce a profit. Mister Jingles scraped home at 13/2 to 11/2.

One bet from Probandit on a 10/11 favourite Kilt Rock secured a small profit today.

Let down

A good day for Probandit was spoiled by the other two services today. Two winners from three, with Mont Agel (9/4) and Muftarres drifting to 6/1 SP.

Earlsmedic was the tip for both Equine and the Form Analyst which cost me today. Equine now down 23 points on this years peak with Form Analyst down a massive 48 points. The Form Analyst is now fighting a relegation battle and whether he likes it or not, the next bet is going to be the most important bet...until the next bet after that. Probably now I'd like to get level and just get out. However we will see what this week brings.

This blog could start becoming a bit repetitive. The phrase "poor run continues for Equine and the Form Analyst's tip came in last of all again" could just be copied and pasted by me every night to save me time!

The Legends continued the revival with a second for Rio De La Plata (4/1) and a place for Leyte Gulf (11/1).

Two dreadful days in a row

Beyond the stage of getting depressed about the poor results now. Pretty poor today and I knew it was going to be after the first Probandit result at 1.50 Ayr. Decided to run with the Form Analyst on the same stake as I have being doing. Took the attitude it couldn't possibly get any worse.

Good point of the day was another winner for the Legends with Quai d'Orsay winning at 4/1. Will post up Septembers losses tomorrow.

Clean sweep

A clean sweep of losers today and £600 dropped. The dice haven't fallen too well for me at all this month for the Legends tips. The bulk of the points have been scored on days I haven't bet. Today, my first day following the tips this week, we had only losers. Prince of Thebes (7/1), Corton Charlemagne (11/2) , Vhujon (5/1) and a double on the last two were the losers.

Utter frustration with Equine continues. I have tried to be disciplined and have left the non account bet "mentions." However I have lost count of the number of "mentions" that have won this month. Meanwhile the account bets are running like they all have 3 legs. So much for "discipline" paying off! Both Aussie Blue (9/2) and Shadowtime (13/2) had poor races today.

Form Analyst resumes tomorrow after a break. Still not 100% sure what I am doing. I have a plan for Equine's all weather season that will require a healthy bank, which I have in place at the moment. The question is do I take a gamble and risk the bank?

Good day for the Pro

3 bets for Probandit today and all gave some sort of return. Places for Ours (6/1), Black Dahlia (100/30) and finally to finish off, a nice win for Salerosa (7/1) at Southwell.

Also noted another good winner for the Legends today with Invincible Lad winning at 4/1.

Keeping an eye on the football services that JP is following. I have tried a few before but had little success due to prices falling quicker than an Equine price (and last minute goals!). Will be interesting to see how they shape up this year.

3 races covered by Probandit today all at Brighton. Places for Welsh Opera (7/2) and Who's Winning (7/2) in the 2.50 and finally a place for The Name is Frank (11/4) in the 5.20.

Frustration with the only bet of the day Lost in Paris (3/1) finishing 2nd for Equine. A slow end to the season for them, as I think it was last year also.

The Tipping Legends have produced a stunning week with profit everyday including another winner today. 91 points this week in total I believe! I take JC's point that those that only bet on certain days may need to review their strategy.....however I am not just ready yet to change my betting pattern.

Usual Saturday

Out of form Equine managed no return from 3 bets. Kingswinford (11/2) finished 3rd while Hamish McGonagall (10/1) and Fol Hollow (10/1) were also out of the money at Haydock.

Probandit brought in a small profit with Rasaman (9/2) winning at Chester , however the higher staked Invincible Force (5/1) finished well down the field in the previous race.

Well pleased

Got to thank the Legends big time for getting this great run going as it has really brought my betting bank back from the death this month. A great run for Mull of Killough (4/1) at Haydock brought in a 4 point win. Also had a small e/w treble which was alive to a return until the last race when Jadalee unfortunately couldn't get in the places.

Probandit also brought us a winner tonight with Painoforte (11/1 to 10/1) winning on small stakes at Wolverhampton.

Keeping an eye on the Form Analyst at the moment and I am hoping the many distractions going on in the forum are not taking Graeme's attention from his key mission..which is, in my opinion, making me money!

Should have been better

Vintage bet from the Legends today saw Go Go Green come home first at morning price of 25/1. I of course took the gamble that it would drift and took betfair sp and ended up with 12's and 4.03 on the place. Probably would have got most of it at 18/1 or so with the restricted accounts I have. So once again an error by me (or bad luck) costs me several hundred pounds!

Nevertheless the Legends are on a great run. Long may it continue.

Slightly up

Weird day with Equine and Probandit going for the same horses today. The horses in question were Baltimore Jack (2/1), a winner, and Bedloes Island (7/2), placed. Equine went for the e/w double on them. Probandit also had a couple of losers.

So slightly up but in reality not enough to eat into the heavy losses of the last few weeks.

What should I do?

Only one bet today from the Form Analyst and it was a 3 point howler. Goodwood Starlight drifted from 7/1 to 16/1 before the off and was never in it. Now over 40 points down since the high in mid July, by the prices I managed, and I think I missed a 2 point loser while I was on holiday. Must be very close to the worst run I have been on with a tipster since I began. If it isn't, it is certainly the worst run in terms of bets performance by a mile.

If this had been a bad run by Equine I would have no problem with it as that service has proven success over the long run.

So panic has set in and confidence is down the chute. Was going to give it to the end of the month but I'll now have to sleep on it and decide whether it is time to pull the plug now before too much financial damage is done.

Not a great start to the week

Another bet with no return from the Form Analyst today with Apex (14/1) finishing well down the field at Kempton.

Probandit backed an old favourite, Ours (6/1 sp), which finished in 3rd.

As a note yesterday the Legends went for a 4 point win on Braveheart Move which of course won at 6/1. That would really have sorted my week out but I'll plod on with the Wednesday to Friday strategy for the rest of the month.

Saved by Probandit

Thankfully Probandit brought in a place and a win today from 3 bets. Both at Wolverhampton, Bahamian Lad won at 6/1 with Monsieur Reynard (7/1) placing in the previous race.

Equine managed a 4th with Class is Class (11/2) which was enough to bring in a small profit.

Now to the bad stuff...

To be honest at this point in time my confidence has completely gone with both the Legends and the Form Analyst. I've been with the Legends a long time and I'm loathe to leave. For the Form Analyst it is not just the poor run and the fact a huge amount of tips are coming in stone dead last, its the fact that the flat season is over. Graeme admits himself that he is best on the flat. So if I haven't made any money on 3 months flat racing I am wondering what the point is in risking my bank on the national hunt.

Will run both services to the end of the month..but it would take something dramatic for me to change my mind.

Had already a rant ready to post up on the blog tonight as it looked like a full list of losers to report.

Thankfully Probandit's last bet of the day (which drifted before the off) Billy Red (SP 13/2) made all to win at Wolverhampton.

Elsewhere Equine's poor end to the season continues with Shadowtime (4/1) finishing 4th and the Legends only bet of the day Jackday (4/1) also finished 4th.

Two services made some money today but it wasn't enough to increase the bank.

A low odds winner for Probandit, Silent Secret (5/4) and a winner for the Form Analyst, Arizona John (7/2){ thought this had only come 2nd when I left work...must've been the tightest photo in history}.

After a good day yesterday for the Legends, today wasn't as good for me with my Wednesday to Friday strategy. 2 losers ..Spiritofthewest (8/1) and Fastnet Storm (5/1) both finished unplaced.

Also of note today was my email from Paddypower informing me I was no longer eligible for BOG. Nice!

Pretty dreadful today other than the Legends. They managed a winner with Kings Colour (11/4) and a place for Atlantic Story (16/1).

The timing of the Form Analyst to wager 2 points on a 33/1 shot did give me a shock today, after the horrible run we have been on for over a month. Piscean ( I took BFSP of 44.79/8.37) managed to finish 19th out of 20. The previous bet Purus (10/1) finished last.

Nothing for Equine today either with Iron Out (7/1) finishing 4th and two losers for Probandit with Miss Firefly (8/1) and Bold Ring (6/1) both running poorly.

Great day

Good profit made today with Total Impact (mostly 11/4) winning for both Equine and the Legends at Doncaster. The other bet of the day for the Legends, Inxile (4/1), finished down in 5th.

A new staking plan and new strategy for the Legends from today. I will be running £50 per point which is , under the new staking, an increase. Hopefully form is temporary and class is permanent! A risk perhaps with the increase in stake...but isn't that what gambling is all about?

My panic meter had been steadily rising ( you can probably tell from my last few posts) and had reached about 8.5 (out of 10) by the time the first bet Orchard Supreme (8/1) finished just out of the places behind a 25/1 shot.

Thankfully Mujood (8/1) delivered in the next race at Goodwood, if only by a head, to bring me 9.6 pts profit on the day. It is when a winner comes in on these stakes and at these odds that it suddenly dawns on me (again) that a 30 point losing run can in fact be soothed by 3 winners. Anyhow panic meter back down to about 3 now and hopefully we can get it down to zero by the end of the week.

Credit also to Probandit today who managed to score 3 winners from 4 bets today. Not huge stakes though but winners in the form of Lord Kenmare (9/4), Dohasa (Evens) and Grantsville (6/1) all at Dundalk.

The Legends also had a fairly good day and hopefully today's form will continue from Wednesday to Friday.

So much relief today however I need to build on this now and get the bank moving back to the same level as the end of July.

Utter rubbish today. Probandit's effort Ginger Grey (6/1) finishing down in 5th. The Form Analyst managed to pick another 3 legged horse today with Even Bolder (7/1) finishing 7th of 8. Frustration starting to turn to annoyance now.

Not the worst Saturday

Probandit came up trumps with todays only winner from one bet. Weet A Surprise (13/2 R4) ran a perfect race to win at Wolverhampton.

Elsewhere not a great run for Hamish McGonagall (8/1) for Equine. The Form Analyst's terrible run continues with Blue Spinnaker (10/1 to 9/1) never in the race. It's now only one winner since the 21st July. Not exactly what I was expecting.

I think frustration must be my favourite word when it comes to horse racing. My bank is slowly disintegrating again as the tipsters continue to fail me.

A place for Probandit with Charlie Delta (7/1) and a place for the Legends , Nifty fox (7/1). Unfortunately both services also had losers today and therefore both posted losses on the day.

Back from holiday

Updated the month of August in total but not the individual days I was on holiday ( I have those done on my own spreadsheet). Looking back I wish I had just taken a break from betting while I was away. The mobile Internet worked fine, but it was just a pain in the ass doing the bets while on holiday. The results of the tipsters during my time away do not inspire me to bet on my next trip. Saying that, Sods Law would indicate that I would probably have missed out on a fortune had I not placed the bets.

The month of August was disappointing as a whole, bar Equine. However I did expect a correction after July. Saying this I do have some concerns about a couple of the services I follow. Hopefully my concern will be removed by the end of September.

Todays results saw a profit for Probandit with a couple of winners. Collateral Damage (11/4) and Valid Point (11/10) both won.

The Legends got the month off to another dreadful start. Gentle Guru (6/1) and Intervision (7/1) both lost despite having mentions on several forums. Free Agent (16/1 to 14/1) finished well at Salisbury but as a win only bet we got no return.

Busy day for Probandit

Was hoping it wouldn't be too busy while I was away. However Probandit had 4 bets today which was a bit of a pain considering the speed of this mobile internet. 2 places was all that was managed to produce another loss on the day. Its been a poor month for Paul who has had no luck at all with 2nd being the favourite position!

Equine however continues its great summer. Another winner with Collateral Damage (4/1 to 3/1). Would have got best prices more than likely if I had moved my backside quicker. However the heat has turned me into slow motion man.

Very quiet thankfully

Not much time spent putting todays bets on with only Probandit playing. Ours (13/2) beaten in a photo at Southwell sums up Probandits luck at the moment.

Live from the Algarve

Chilling out and relaxing in the sun. Missed the only bet on Sunday due to flight delay....bird strike on the previous flight. The bet was a 2 point loser for the Form Analyst.

Today's only bet was also a 2 point loser for the Form Analyst which I did place. Royal Flynn (6/1) gave me no holiday profit.

A special note must be given to the Legends golf service, which as I have jealously just read, gave JP his biggest ever winner....and it was on betfair which makes it even better! So congrats to the Legends and JP on that big win. Guess who feels stupid now!

Prayer answered

Only bet of the day was a double for Equine. Bertoliver and Fanjura won their respective races for an unexpected and much needed profit. I was however lazy today and not expecting the bet to win didn't go shopping for the best prices which has cost me several hundred pounds. I ended up with 4/1 and 6/1 respectively.

So a great Saturday. Tomorrow, assuming my mobile internet works ok, I will be posting here from a luxurious villa on the Algarve. Possible i might miss a few bets due to flight times but at least I didn't miss todays.

Still no damn winners! The idea of holding a portfolio was to break up bad runs. Ive lost count this year how many of these bad runs they all go on the same time. The pain......!!!

To add to my agony its the weekend tomorrow....the crematorium of my betting bank.

Please, please tipsters give me some winners tomorrow....

The poor week continues and winners seem elusive. I did comment towards the end of July about how I would cope with the inevitable downturn after the ridiculously good purple patch. Now I know. It is actually physically painful and I would say my swearing has increased a touch on daily result review. Surely I can't have only one good month in a 12 month period?

Again today the first Equine bet was the key bet with the Legends also having a 2pt bet in the 2.50 York. Acrostic (6/1) placed for Equine with the Legends bet Lovelace (9/1) finishing down in 9th. From this point in the day I knew I was destined for a poor one. Only Lithaam (6/1) at Chepstow for Probandit brought any return. Its hard work at the moment!

Saw it coming

Was due one of these horrendous days and I sort of felt it was coming soon. Today was the day! Losers all round..with only Mister Mananan (11/4) coming close after being beaten by a neck at York.

Beaten by a neck!

So nearly, nearly a good one today. Hamish McGonagall (13/2 to 6/1) beaten in the last few strides by Barney McGrew in the first at York for Equine. The winner was a 25/1 tip for the Legends today and although I don't back them on Tuesday I'm pleased to see JC get things back in gear over the last few days. I over staked on Hamish McGonagall due to the Hills refer to trader crap, though it turned out ok today.

Another loser today for the Form Analyst today with Millfield (8/1) finishing 5th. Not a great run for them at the moment though no need to panic just yet. I must admit though the over confidence from some of the members does make me feel slightly uneasy. It's a tough old game this and there is no such thing as a "sure thing".

Decent start to the week

Probandit brought its poor run to an end (hopefully!) with just under 3 points profit today. One winner from 3 bets with First Blade (7/2) coming home first at Wolverhampton.

Elsewhere a place for the Form Analyst with Trumpet Lily (8/1) and a single loser for Equine.

A good steady start to the week.

Normal weekend service resumed

Loss on the day..not too bad though. I am beginning to feel this month that if the Equine bet doesnt win on the day then neither will I. Only the Legends have chipped in this month, following Wednesday to Friday tips( In fact they had an 8/1 winner today also).

Saturday Profit

Thanks to Equine I made some money on a Saturday. A rarity indeed! Swift Gift (4/1) won the 3.45 Newbury in a race that also involved 2 e/w bets from the Form Analyst. Masia Moon (12/1) finished in 3rd for them.

Probandit continued its awful run. 3 bets failed to get anywhere near making profit today.

As for the Canbet crap below I've given up and withdrawn my cash. Maybe I am wrong about the rules but I know they have paid BOG before. The fact the transaction doesn't even show up on my account history is suspicious. Also the email advertised on their webpage has returned several Permanent Delivery Failures. Finally to have a customer service guy just decide to ignore me is down right rude. So f@ck you Randal and Canbet.
