Stat of the Day, 1st August 2015

Stat of the Day, 1st August 2015 Lydia’s Place was withdrawn shortly after 10.00am on Friday, leaving us with nothing report on, I’m afraid. It does however mean that we ended July on a winning note at the end of yet another highly profitable month for Stat of the Day. Saturdays are notoriously tricky punting […]

Double Dutch, 31st July 2015 A pair or runners-up was all I could manage yesterday, I’m afraid. One Pekan was caught on the line and lost by a head with Royal Altitude a further 3 places and 3 lengths back in the running order. Whilst later, our two runners at Epsom were only a length […]

Stat of the Day, 31st July 2015 Hats off to Andrew Mullen for the way he rode Fantasy Gladiator at Nottingham on Thursday afternoon. He blew the start lost plenty of ground and then once he’d played catch up had to be restrained quite vigorously for a while. They then went three wide around the […]

Double Dutch, 30th July 2015 Even after a 10p Rule 4 deduction, both our runners in our opening race smashed their SP, with First Sargeant performing best for us, wining by 2.25 lengths at 7/4. That gave us almost 1.75pts running on to the later race at Sandown, where… …we also had a 10p Rule […]

Stat of the Day, 30th July 2015 A rare SotD sortie to a major Festival didn’t bear fruit I’m afraid as a third place finish at our adsvised odds of 5/1 was the best that Forest Maiden could manage for us. She broke well and seized the initiative in a bid to make all, but […]

Double Dutch, 29th July 2015 It’s becoming a bit like the film, Groundhog Day, here at DD, as we rattled the crossbar again yesterday. We had both the winner and the runner-up at Goodwood (and a bonus in the shape of a 15/2 exacta), but had to settle for the minor honours at Wolverhampton. Tuesday’s […]

Stat of the Day, 29th July 2015 No joy for us on Tuesday at Wolverhampton, where Llyrical ran out of gas with a furlong to go and was subsequently passed by four runners on his way to the line. He had raced prominently, if a little wide, throughout the contest, but when push came to […]

Double Dutch, 28th July 2015 As seems to have been the norm over the last week, we were frustrated with a winner/placer combination once more yesterday. It was particularly galling after getting the winner of what looked a trappy 60-90 contest at Galway and then failing in an average-looking C5 handicap 10 mins later at […]

Stat of the Day, 28th July 2015 The weather played its part in denying us a four-timer at Ayr on Monday afternoon, not that I’m one to make excuses, but Chadic seemed to toil in the soft wet conditions on offer. That said, he still ran, so I suppose connections still fancied his chances, as […]

Double Dutch, 27th July 2015 Like the previous days before it, Saturday was another agonisingly frustrating near-miss for us. The horses are there or thereabouts, but we’re not quite getting them both over line. Sweet P was game and gutsy to win at Newcastle, having relinquished the lead with a furlong to go before rallying […]

Stat of the Day, 27th July 2015 Saturday’s selection Camanche Grey was advised to you at 11/2 BOG and was heavily backed down towards 3/1 before being withdrawn due to the ground condition. That was our second non-runner of the week, but with the other four runners finishing 3111 for over 10pts profit on the […]

Stat of the Day Update: 20/07/15 to 25/07/15 Another good set of results from a bit of a stop start week, which began with a third place finish last Monday and had non-runners on Wednesday and Saturday. Thankfully, however, we had winners on the other three days, meaning that not only did we make just […]

Double Dutch, 25th July 2015 Results continue to frustrate me recently on DD and just like Thursday, Friday presented us with a winner in race 1 followed by a runner-up and the third placed horse in race 2! This, of course, is reassuring that we’re on the right lines, but annoying nontheless! As it was, […]

Stat of the Day, 25th July 2015 Nathan Evans picked up a spare ride on Talyani at York on Friday evening and it’s probably the easiset ride he’s ever had. All he had to do was keep his mount in contention for a mile and then ask him to go and win the race. Talyani […]
