Two to Follow

Good morning all,

Just a quick post with a couple I’ve seen on my travels over the past week that I’d hope will be winning soon.

I’m away to Cheltenham today for the unveiling of the weights for the handicaps, at which point I’ll be getting stuck into them in a big way!

Plus I’ll report any titbits and whispers I pick up today later in the week too!

The importance of breaking even

David Massey is away today so I'm going to fill the gap with some wise words from the brain behind the Bet Less Win More tipping service.

That brain is Gary ‘The Boz' Boswell and the Bet Less Win More service is all about slow and steady profits.

Some might say it's not very exciting when you win a small amount everyday and the gamblers reading will no doubt prefer the excitement of losing runs followed by big winners.

But if you want to make long term profits a little bit most days without ever dropping into the red has a lot going for it.

The excerpts below are taken from an article Gary wrote for the Betting Insiders Club.Continue Reading

Horses to Follow

Today we have two horses for your tracker from John Burke along with a selection from his post in the Betting Insiders forum.

Saturday – 06/10

Ascot

Flaming Spear – Give the recent form of the Dean Ivory stable this wasn’t a bad run in the circumstances.  Not for the first time he wasn’t the best away but he finished his race off strongly to take 5th.

Granted he’s a bit of a ‘quirky’ horse but when all the cards fall right there is a good race in the gelding.

As I mentioned in my Royal Ascot “Horses To Follow” he looks like he needs a mile now and he has an entry in the 1m Balmoral Handicap back here on Champions Day. Now you would want to see the stable runners in a bit better form by the time of that race but he looks to have a good chance there. He can be backed at 14/1 with Sky Bet or 12/1 with William Hill for the Balmoral.

Advice: Just have him in the tracker for the Balmoral Handicap.

Newmarket

The good thing about end of season juvenile maidens & novice races at Newmarket are the future winners that can be found.

Turgenev – Who got the eye when an impressive winner of a Newcastle novice on his second career start. The John Gosden trained newcomer took another step forward here when giving 6lb + to his eleven rivals to win this 1m Newmarket novice. 

His final margin of victory 1 ½ lengths doesn’t reflect his superiority as his jockey eased him up the final 100yds.

The son of Dubawi had no problem with the easy surface and the Group 1 Vertem Futurity Trophy Stakes at Doncaster could be his next assignment.

He looks a nice horse already and he’s bred to do better as a three-year-old. When he should be able to stay 1m 2f.

Besides the winner the trainer also had the third home with Franz Kafka. Another son of Dubawi he was making his racecourse debut and his inexperience showed. He stayed on nicely enough into a well beaten 3rd at the line. He’s very much a work in progress and should do better with time and racing. His dam won the 1m 2f Pretty Polly as 3-year-old and was 5th in that seasons Oaks.

Advice: Back Turgenev if he runs at Doncaster but also keep him your trackers for next season.

Today's Selections

Ayr

I pointed out last week the good record of Irish trainer John James Feane at Ayr – 7 winners from 19 runners 37% +9.13 A/E 1.68 9 placed 47%. He had another winner here last week and he send over two from his Curragh base for today’s meeting:

2:05 – Syndicate – 11/4 @ Lads & Sky
3:40 – Long Wood – 5/2 @ WH & BV

Both runners look strong contenders in their respective races. But it maybe worth pointing out that the trainers record in Class 6 races (Long Wood) is – 6 winners from 14 runners 43% +10.88 A/E 1.88 7 placed 50%. With all seven of his winners having their first run at Ayr – 7 winners from 14 runners 50% +14.13 A/E 2.05 8 placed 54% (Syndicate & Long Wood)

Systems are the Answer

With David away this week it falls to me to try and fill the void today.

David is very affective with his selections which are often found as a result of things he’s seen in the parade ring or during a race and being at the race course many times each week he is ideally placed to spot those under exposed future winners.

But for me systems are the answer to the racing puzzle.

This is because they require less work on race day as the hard work of researching the system has been done ahead of time.

And just as importantly when following a system you don’t have any indecision about backing a selection, if the system identifies the selection then it’s a bet.

I like to do the research, decide that I have a profitable angle and commit to following the selections that angle throws up for a set period of time at which time I’ll decide whether to continue with the system.

We have one such system that has been developed within the Betting Insiders Club that I will be following for the new National Hunt season which we are selling a few copies of, if you would like that you can get a copy here https://www.bettinginsiders.com/nh-system/

It’s less than a tenner and will find you 15 to 20 bets per month through to the end of the season next April.

For today’s free tip I’ve raided the Betting Insiders members forum and this selection comes from a very popular club member who posts under the name Welshman

Nottingham 4:30 Makambe – each way bet 11/1 Paddy Power
