Double Dutch, 17th April 2014

Double Dutch, 17th April 2014 They say that things come in threes, well for the third successive day since my return, I managed to have one winning race and one loser and it’s a little frustrating to say the least! We got off the mark in a decent-looking Listed event where both our runners battled […]

Stat of the Day, 17th April 2014 A runner-up at 10/1 finishing around three lengths behind an odds-on jolly us a pretty good E/W bet in my book and I know many of you made a small profit out of Stanley Bridge via that method. My general (but not set in stone!) approach to staking […]

Double Dutch, 16th April 2014 Tuesday went pretty much the same way as Monday did, I’m afraid. We had a well backed winner in race 1, where Geeaitch triumphed at a rather skinny 6/4 after we’d got on at 3/1 earlier in the day. He quickened readily to win quite cosily in the end, but […]

Stat of the Day, 16th April 2014 SotD’s recent dismal run continued on Tuesday as Take The Crown could only manage to finish third despite being heavily backed down to 11/8 from our overnight advisory price of 3/1. The final margin of defeat was just over five lengths, which probably flattered the leading pair, as […]

Double Dutch, 15th April 2014 No winning return to action for me yesterday after Love Tangle and Wylye were beaten into third and fourth places respectively in our second race. We did manage to pick the winner of race 1, as New Youmzain just about found enough late on to win a 2m 5.5f marathon […]

Stat of the Day, 15th April 2014 Lockedoutaheaven was withdrawn on Monday morning leaving us with a no-bet day, so we’re hoping to get the week underway somewhat belatedly with a trip to Devon for the… 3.35 Exeter: And a look at trainer Henry Oliver, who has had an excellent start to his career as […]

Double Dutch, 14th April 2014 Good Morning Everyone! I’m back in the hot seat after my spring break and I’ll be looking to pick up from the excellent form displayed by the boss in my absence. No joy on Saturday, though, as we hit the woodwork in both races. Al Thakira went down by a […]

Stat of the Day, 14th April 2014 It’s rare for us to highlight a 10/1 winner on SotD and an even rarer occasion when I’m not entirely ecstatic to have done so, yet both of those events occurred on my first day back “in the chair” on Saturday. I was torn between two runners both […]

Stat of the Day Update: 24/03/14 to 12/04/14 March/April are often very difficult months for anyone to consistently pick winners and so it proved for both myself and Matt over the last few weeks. We were actually pretty pleased/relieved (delete as applicable!) to escape from March with just a 5.44pts deficit and we’ve lost a […]

Stat of the Day, 12th April 2014 Good Morning Everyone! It’s good to be back with you after my holiday. After all, there’s only so much time you can sit in the sunshine on a white sandy beach sipping ice-cold cocktails, isn’t there? The lure of the new Flat season was too strong, so here […]

Stat of the Day, 27th March 2014 A nice bookie bashing win at Kempton on Wednesday evening, as our 100/30 shot Desert Colours returned as a 2/1 winning favourite. He led in the early stages but was headed around halfway before battling back to regain the lead and running on to score by a length […]

Double Dutch, 26th March 2014 Another of those “one from two” days and another occasion where Sod’s Law reared its ugly head to thwart us. In race 2, Tarraco toughed it out and just about held on to win by just a short head in a photograph of what looked like a slow motion finish […]

Stat of the Day, 26th March 2014 Nozic, no joy, I’m afraid. The old warrior ran well enough until an error 4 from home seemed to upset his rhythm and it wasn’t long before he began to struggle. To his and his jockey’s credit, they persevered and saw the race out, albeit from the back […]

Double Dutch, 25th March 2014 My Single Malt looked set for victory last night, but was overhauled approximately 50 yards from the line and went down to a one length defeat, denying us a very tasty 14/1 double in the process. This was because my first choice and 4/1 pick Star In The Sky booted […]

Stat of the Day, 25th March 2014 As if by magic, after I’d attempted to reassure new readers of the long-term validity of the SotD service, that we pop up with a nice 9/2 winner in the shape of Cosway Spirit. We took advantage of a great overnight price that was originally double the Industry […]
