SotD : Monday 27/04/15

Stat of the Day, 27th April 2015 Our 7/2 shot Ajman Bridge was beaten by just a neck as a fancied 2/1 favourite at Doncaster on Saturday and the frustration/disappointment of that result just about summed up my week! I’ve absolutely no complaints about his run or the way he was handled, he was just […]

Stat of the Day Update: 20/04/15 to 25/04/15 A largely frustrating week for SotD, I’m afraid, with just the one winner and a loss on the week of 1.5pts, having failed to land anything since the first pick of the week. Mind you, had Saturday’s runner not gone down by just a neck, we’d be […]

Double Dutch, 25th April 2015 Wins for Waady and Flugzeug made for a pleasant Friday afternoon as they combined to form a useful near-8/1 double and with Thahab also making the frame in Race 1, it was an enjoyable afternoon in the sun. Friday’s results were as follows: Waady: WON at 9/4 (adv 2/1) Thahab: […]

Stat of the Day, 25th April 2015 Hmmmm, for the second day running, our horse finished third, wasn’t beaten by far and I wasn’t 100% happy with the jockey’s performance. For recent recruits to the SotD cause, I must stress this isn’t me talking through my pocket : it’s very rare that I’m critical of […]

Double Dutch, 24th April 2015 When Vincitore drifted out to 5/1 and then just about got up on the line, we were well on the way to a very nice 18.5/1 double and it looked for all the world that Master Zephyr’s smooth passage from back to front was perfectly timed, but the leader just […]

Stat of the Day, 24th April 2015 When One For Hocky doubled in price from our advised 7/2 BOG out to 7/1 shortly before race time, I wasn’t too concerned, I just thought we’d be doubling our returns! Unfortunately we had to settle for third place at the end of a strange race, where I […]

Double Dutch, 23rd April 2015 I was happy to get away with just a 0.25pt loss on a bit of a farcical day yesterday. Two runners, including my fancy Aye Well, were withdrawn from our opening race, leaving it as a 3-runner affair with large Rule 4 deductions. As it was, our sole entrant Cango, […]

Stat of the Day, 23rd April 2015 To the untrained observer (ie me!) it looked for all the world that 10lb claimer Conor Brassil had been told to keep close to the well backed favourite at Ffos Las on Wednesday night and when you’re just starting out, you do as you’re told! As it happens, […]

Double Dutch, 22nd April 2015 Yesterday was the 500th Double Dutch and it would have been nice to mark the milestone with a win. Unfortunately that wasn’t the case and despite three of our four runners making the frmae, we didn’t even land a single winner! In race 1 Sublime Talent beat Town Mouse (1.25L) […]

Geegeez Weekly System Trials Roundup 22/04/2015 Last week I introduced you to Gary Poole from the BIC and his Trackerman service who had made an excellent start to his trial, having hit 5 winners from 12 for £160 profit. Well, in an almost mirror image of that fine start Gary hit 5 winners from 13 […]

Stat of the Day, 22nd April 2015 A rare off day for the Skeltons as both their runners finished 5th at Ludlow on Tuesday, including our pick Guiding George. He wasn’t too far off the pace before hitting the 12th fence and losing some momentum at a time when the race was picking up, leaving […]

Double Dutch, 21st April 2015 Monday was a good start to the week, as Beggars Velvet drifted out to 2/1 before winning at Hexham and then La Bague Au Roi led Princess Roania home to complete a 6.88/1 double and also to land an exacta that paid slightly more than 11/2. We don’t keep official results of […]

Stat of the Day, 21st April 2015 Well, Monday was kind to us as we kicked out the new week in the same manner that the rest of the month has performed, with yet another winner. Resolute Reformer was certainly resolute in getting home by a length after looking beaten on the home turn. He stayed on, […]

Double Dutch, 20th April 2015 No winners on Saturday as the week ended on a disappointing note. Race favourite Ivawood failed to sparkle in the Greenham Stakes at Newbury, finishing third at 13/8 and beaten by five lengths with backup selection Belardo trooping home 8th of the 9 runners, beaten by almost 14 lengths on the day.
