Double Dutch, 22nd September 2014

Double Dutch, 22nd September 2014 Saturday was a day of contrasts, I selected two vastly different races, one a Listed contest, the other an average looking Class 6 handicap. I got two very different results too! We got the 1-2 in the Listed race, with the horses finishing in the order I expected and with a drift […]

Stat of the Day, 22nd September 2014 We backed Night Party at 11/2 on Saturday and I was pretty happy to get that price to be honest. The market, however, disagreed with me and the horse was eventually sent off at double (yes, double!) my advised odds at an SP of 11/1. Which meant a juicy […]

Stat of the Day Update: 15/09/14 to 20/09/14 September continues to prove to be difficult and I (like many in our industry) am still scratching about a bit for winners. This was reflected over the last week for SotD followers, where I only hit one winner from 6, but had a couple of near misses; […]

Double Dutch, 20th September 2014 Close, but no cigar was the outcome from Friday, I’m afraid. I called the Worcester race spot on by declaring that I expected Marjus Quest to just shade it ahead of Houston Dynimo and he did by just a neck holding on. There was the added bonus of a small 5.85/1 forecast, but the […]

Stat of the Day, 20th September 2014 A great run from Hawkhill yesterday put us back in profit for the week and ensured another profitable month for SotD in what are difficult times. He led from the off and controlled the race from the front, never seeing another rival on his way to a comfortable 7 […]

Double Dutch, 19th September 2014 After a decent few days this week, yesterday was nothing to write home about at all, as we failed to land a single winner and only one of our four selections even made the frame. The placer was Al Bandar who was beaten on the nod by a short head, which meant the […]

Stat of the Day, 19th September 2014 Despite still being well ahead of the game for the month, September has proven to be quite frustrating so far and yesterday’s 4th place finish for an E/W selection pretty much summed up the way things have gone of late. But amongst all this, my methods won’t change. We’re almost three […]

Double Dutch, 18th September 2014 After Tuesday’s narrow failure (by a nose!), we got back to winning ways yesterday to record our second successful double of the week and thanks to the use of BOG bookies, we got paid out at 15.25/1 on a double that was settled at 12/1 SP. It might not seem much difference, […]

Stat of the Day, 18th September 2014 I don’t know what to make of Eleusis’ run at Yarmouth on Wednesday. I don’t think she ran badly, but I don’t think she ran well either. She fell out of the stalls and conceded a couple of lengths at the start, but hat didn’t affect the result, as […]

Double Dutch, 17th September 2014 We came a nose away from landing successive doubles yesterday, as Kinshasa narrowly failed to overhaul a previous course and distance winner who’d got his head in front approaching the final furlong. Kinshasa only had a length to make up, but looked to labour a little and didn’t seem to pickup as expected, […]

Hi everyone, I was just looking back through the system trials and the performances of many of the featured services have mirrored my own fortunes of late. It has been a difficult period recently and although my own activities are making some small profits, it really has been a torrid time for some of the […]

Stat of the Day, 17th September 2014 Lady Moscou ran a nice enough race, did nothing wrong and looked better than her eventual 7/2 SP would suggest. The problem was that the 5/4 favourite Rotherwick was just too good/quick for her late on. I took the favourite on, because I felt he might struggle to win twice […]

Double Dutch, 16th September 2014 Monday saw a return to winning ways, with two nice runs at decent prices from my first picks in each race. Anginola won for the first time in 13 months (and 13 races!) and was finally rewarded for her consistency. The drop into a seller at a lower mark than her last […]

Stat of the Day, 16th September 2014 Right of Appeal was, at 6/4, a fairly well-beaten (9 lengths) third of just four runners in a race decimated by non-runners, as five horses ducked this one. Whether the presence of the missing runners would have affected the way the race unfolded isn’t clear and probably isn’t worth […]

Double Dutch, 15th September 2014 Pretty poor stuff on Saturday, I’m afraid. Firstly I omitted the wrong one of three at Bath, as Smart Daisy K defied the rise in weight to win by a length and a quarter with our best placed runner, Random Success a further place and three parts of a length further back. […]
