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?

Results from Today
  • Equine.............Loss of £200.00

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.

Placing only

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.

3 days of small losses...but they are starting to add up again!

Second place for Equine again!

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.

  • Probandit.....Profit of £40.63

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.

Saved by the last bet

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.

A profit on the day at last this week all be it a small one.

Still not making money

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!

Not a very good day

Another poor day as the tipsters take turns in posting losses.

Two bets from Equine failed to bring a return, while the Form Analyst's double looked hopeful after the first leg of the bet won. However the second leg could only manage 3rd no return.

3 bets for the Form Analyst today with one winner Ocean Blaze (7/1 to 13/2) was enough to bring some light relief to the end of the week. Hopefully we can hold onto these points and move forward. Every point you gain is very precious and there is nothing worse than seeing them being thrown away.

Lucky me!

The luck I am having at the moment was summed up with only one bet today from Equine. The tip ,a 4/5 favourite, finished last of 4 !

Meanwhile I missed a 9 point loss with the Saturday Legends tips. While I am glad I missed these I would prefer to see JC hit some form and start racking up points as many days as possible.

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?

Relief rather than joy was how I felt after the Form Analyst finally brought me a winner today. 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.
