No bets

Nothing wagered on Sunday at the end of another successful week.

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.

Results from Today

  • Legends.............Profit of £250.00

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.

Results from Today

  • Probandit.........Profit of £218.98

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.

Results from Today

  • Legends.............Profit of £1275.00
  • Probandit...........Loss of £100.00

Just the one

Quiet start to the week and it was a slight loss to report. Balinderry (4/1) pulled up at Ludlow in the Legends only bet of the day.

Results from Today

  • Legends...........Loss of £100.00

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.

  • Legends...........Loss of £350.00

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.

Results from Friday

  • Probandit.........Profit of £211.46
  • Legends...........Loss of £400.00

Thursday, 19 November 2009

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.

Results from Today
  • Legends...........Loss of £150.00

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
  • Probandit.........Loss of £92.28

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!

Results from Tuesday

  • Legends.............Profit of £1225.00

Monday, 16 November 2009

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.

  • Legends...........Loss of £300.00

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.

  • Legends.............Profit of £812.60

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!

  • Legends.............Profit of £599.60

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!

Results from Friday
  • Legends...........Loss of £550.00

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.

Results from Today

  • Legends...........Profit of £837.50
  • Probandit.........Profit of £103.75

1 bet 1 win

Lovely Tuesday with the Legends getting a winner from their only bet of the day. Don't think Vinmix De Bessy (6/1 - 5/1) romped it home...but does it matter!

Small profit again

Only the two bets to start the week. Probandit was successful with Spinning 11/4 winning at Wolverhampton. The Legends bet Storymaker (6/1) drifted before the off on betfair and finished down in 7th.

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.

Results from Saturday

  • Probandit.........Profit of £37.50
  • Legends...........Loss of £190.40

Friday, 6 November 2009

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.

Results from Today

  • Probandit.........Profit of £382.90
  • Legends...........Loss of £350.00

Thursday, 5 November 2009


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.

  • Legends.........Loss of £300.00

Good trading day

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.

Over £350 profit on trading on tonight's football and the racing earlier. Not bad for 10 minutes work?

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).

  • Legends...........Profit of £250.00

No actions today other than I missed out on another good day for the Legends!
