Good morning all,

Looks a rainy day in store for me at Warwick and that’s only going to make things even trickier as I expect the ground to change pretty quickly once racing gets underway. With that in mind, I’m playing it as soft ground rather than the good to soft that’s advertised at present.

I’ve also picked a box up today – a rarity! – so the good people of Executive Hire (they sponsor two races on the card) will be expecting a winner or two. My preview of two races on the card in on the main piece.

2.20 – Executive Hire Show Maiden Hurdle (2m5f)

None of the ones at the front at the market are cast-iron, it seems they all have something to prove.

Oscars Boss was a huge disappointment at Plumpton – punters couldn’t shovel the money on quick enough, backed from 4-7 to 1-4 but he couldn’t rope in The Caller in the closing stages and in truth, never looked like doing so either.

Coincidentally, the same day I was offered a free account at Matched Bets, so I gave the log in details to my friend and she is making a little bit of money.Continue Reading

Guaranteed Profits

With David away for the week I have to confess that I’m scrapping around trying to find interesting things to tell you.

So today I’m going to tell you about a method that can guarantee you betting profits and then after I’ve explained that I’ll tell you how you can make just as much profit with less than half the work, with a but.

The but is that the much easier method doesn’t guarantee profit on every bet, but (again) you are guaranteed to profit over the long run and as I say it’s a lot easier.

What I’m talking about is betting those each-way bets where, because the bookies are locked into 1/5 or 1/4 odds, that the place odds are much larger than they should be.

So an example…Continue Reading
