Stat of the Day, 18th December 2014

Stat of the Day, 18th December 2014 No fanfare or celebration from our 1,000th runner as Hazzaat could only manage a pretty well beaten (9L) 2nd at 7/2 (adv 4/1) in the last race of the day. In fairness, he pretty much ran the race he was expected to, held up in rear ready for […]

Double Dutch, 17th December 2014 A short head! That’s all that separated us from a nice 12/1 double and what we actually got ie nada, zip, zero! Doctor Parkes was given just a little bit too much work to do in his bid to overhaul the leader Fair Value, who made and got first run […]

Stat of the Day, 17th December 2014 I don’t think Thorpe Bay ran too badly at Southwell on Tuesday afternoon and had he been kept a little closer to the action off the final bend, he might well have defied a market drift out from 5/2 to an SP of 9/2. He had too many […]

Well, that seems to be the case with Steve Good Racing (SGR) whose recent review results make him the spot light of this week’s Systems Review Update. We started reviewing SGR just nine days ago and we’ve been very pleased with its performance so far. It’s not for the faint hearted, as there are around […]

Double Dutch, 16th December 2014 It was a case of the old 1-2 again yesterday, as we paired a winner with a runner-up to make a losing day that just fell a length and a half shy of a useful 12.5/1 return. We got the perfect result on the tapeta at Wolverhampton, getting the first […]

Stat of the Day, 16th December 2014 Front Run was very disappointing at Wolverhampton on Monday afternoon and only managed to beat one of his eight rivals home despite a stack of stats suggesting he’d go quite well. Several of you were quite right to disagree with the selection, but the market felt the same way […]

Double Dutch, 15th December 2014 Saturdays have been very good to us here at DD of late and I think Saturday’s success was the fifth winning Saturday in the last six! A quick recap from the most recent of those Saturdays shows the following: 2 races, 4 horses, 2 winners, 2 runners up, a 19/2 […]

Stat of the Day, 15th December 2014 No joy on Saturday for ourselves and Team Moore on a poor day for the yard at Lingfield on Saturday. Tothemoonandback was travelling well enough and in contention until the 12th of 18 fences of the 3 mile trip. He made a mess of that one, lost some impetus/momentum […]

Stat of the Day Update: 08/12/14 to 13/12/14 The second quarter of the month was a better one for us with back to back midweek winners at reasonable prices more than covering the cost of four losing bets. The overall strike rate of SotD equates to 2 wins every seven days and the winners do […]

Double Dutch, 13th December 2014 A short priced, but nontheless successful double got us back to winning ways yesterday, and it just as well that we take the BOG prices! In race 1 Smart Motive was a 2/1 (from 11/4) winner with Echo Foxtrot 15 lengths and 2 places further back as the 15/8 favourite […]

Stat of the Day, 13th December 2014 I’m not entirely sure what caused the situation to arise, but Lord of the Storm was left with far too much to do and in a poor racing position at Wolverhampton on Friday evening. He had to be pulled back slightly and switched outside for run, but by […]

Double Dutch, 12th December 2014 Unfortunately Thursday went the same way as Wednesday, with a winner (and a forecast) paired up with a narrowly beaten runner-up with the margin of defeat being a mere half length after an energy sapping slog in the Newcastle mud. At Taunton, well fancied favourite Money For Nothing loomed large […]

Stat of the Day, 12th December 2014 Top Gamble jumped brilliantly at Warwick on Thursday and made all of the running, holding a fairly slender lead for much of the race, but saving plenty for a finish on what turned out to be the start of a glorious day for his trainer Richard Lee, who […]

Double Dutch, 11th December 2014 More frustration on Wednesday, I’m afraid, after things had started so well up at Hexham. I really liked the look of Deep Resolve and had backed him as a single at 2/1 BOG before putting him in the double, if I’m honest. In fact, he would have been a selection […]
