Double Dutch, 24th April 2014

Double Dutch, 24th April 2014 Back to back doubles as yesterday’s selections threw up a 9/1 success to keep the scoreboard ticking over. Wednesday’s results were as follows: Sausalito Sunrise: won at 15/8 (adv 7/4) Oscar Rock: 2nd at 11/10 (adv 2/1) (The Exacta paid £4.70) ——————————— Ravenous: won at 5/2 (adv 7/4) D’Avignon: u/p at Evs (adv 6/4) Results to date: 218 […]

Stat of the Day, 24th April 2014

Stat of the Day, 24th April 2014 Our winning run came to an end yesterday, but our selection On The Move was far from disgraced finishing third as he seemed to run out of steam late on. We were the victims of a drift in price as went out from our advised 7/2 to a […]

Stat of the Day, 23rd April 2014 Happy St. George’s Day, everyone. The last week has been nothing short of amazing here at SotD and after both Matt and myself had found winners hard to come by in March and early April, we’re now on a run of five winning days in a row, but […]

Stat of the Day, 22nd April 2014 Jockey Mark Quinlan retired from racing after the meeting at Towcester two months ago, but he returned to action with a bang yesterday as he steered our selection Roc de Guye home to win cosily by six lengths. He kept the horse handy throughout, until hitting the front […]

Double Dutch, 21st April 2014 I think Saturday might well represent a new nadir in my form here on Double Dutch! From what looked (on paper, at least!) reasonable chances to get out of the cold, it was just horrible! In race 1 Red Rocco was leading before being pulled up sharply at the 13th, leaving Bennys […]

Stat of the Day, 21st April 2014 Baileys Concerto was a pretty comfortable winner on Saturday to help us to a hat-trick of wins to close out the week before Easter. Our 5/2 BOG was quickly eroded by 10% down to 9/4 BOG, just a few minutes after I’d published the piece,but that still proved […]

Stat of the Day Update: 14/04/14 to 19/04/14 I suggested/hinted last week that our selections had been better than the bare results of late and that the cyclical nature of SotD meant that it was only a matter of time, before we were back amongst the winners, and so it proved. Last week was excellent […]

Sunday Supplement By Tony Stafford I don’t know about you, but I’m totally disoriented this weekend. I joined the motorway-jamming throng that descended on Lingfield for the first Good Friday meeting ever staged in England and was rewarded by an hour-long conclusion on the short leg from the A22 to the track. Saturday’s Racing Post […]

Double Dutch, 19th April 2014 Categorical’s short head defeat was the nearest I got to a winner yesterday and my current cold snap continues. Yet, I’m confident of turning things around and the bottom line is that we’re still almost 60pts in profit with a healthy ROI of over 15% from all stakes. Good (?) […]

Stat of the Day, 19th April 2014 Wow! a 7/1 winner yesterday will certainly have lifted spirits and profit levels yesterday. We’ve often said that SotD seems to follow a cyclical pattern on the route to long-term success and so this week has proved the case. We’ve snapped a long losing run with back to […]

Double Dutch, 18th April 2014 The only thing I got right on Thursday was the finishing order of my selections! Both first choices finished ahead of the alternate picks, but third and fourth places in each race was the best I could muster. Thankfully, days like this are rare, so there’s no point dwelling on it […]

Stat of the Day, 18th April 2014 Jason Hart gave Barkston Ash the perfect ride yesterday to land a nice 9/2 winner for us. He hit the front from the start and made all to score by just over a length. He was pressed inside the final furlong by the Fahey-trained favourite, but found more […]

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 […]
