Tipping Competition Day Four: Catch Up Time

BetVictorThree days down, seven days to go. And we have a clear leader... and how!

Ian Friend has fairly scooted clear, courtesy of three winners from the first six races. And those winners came at odds of 13/2, 12/1 and 20/1. Yikes! That puts Ian on +35.5 units, and begs the question, can anyone catch him?

With another 14 races to go, the answer must be… ‘perhaps’

Best placed to do that are: S Dhillon (+28), Mark Smith (+20), and the Doctor Foxtrot-nominating posse of Kevin Ritchie, Simon Curtis, Paul Matthews, Pete Fisher, and Bernard.

Day four is complicated somewhat by the fact that three meetings are subject to inspections, so I'll steer clear and instead request your predictions for the...

Clonmel 5.25

Kempton 7.30

Same drill as all week:

    Please check I had Orangery 12/1 on top of my two 1st day winners(12/1 & 13/2) but wasn’t mentioned in the contenders!

      Hi Tony

      You’re welcome to check yourself. You didn’t comment yesterday. I’ve been back through all the posts and it’s not there, I’m afraid.

      Maybe you didn’t press the ‘post comment’ button or something, but we definitely didn’t receive an entry from you. Sorry.


      • Tony MS says:

        Looks like it hasn’t recorded. The page kept crashing and I thought I’d eventually got it to post but it was late so ce’st la vie! I’ll have to pick another couple of 12/1’s to make up. lol
        Thanks for looking anyway.

    Hi Matt

    Re: your comment about the locked spreadsheet.

    Try puting a copy of logmein on your office PC and you can access it from home.

    I use the software when travelling and its very good and its free.


    • Matt Bisogno says:

      Thanks John – I use dropbox for everything now, which is brilliant. I just carelessly didn’t close the spreadie when I left here last night!

    7.30 ??? I’ll be back with this one straight AFTER the 19:00 Race has been run Matt!!

  10. David says:

    What’s the non runner situation Matt?
    I liked Signora Frasi and Qeethaara for the 7.30 and went with SF (now out). Can I go with Qeethaara now or just pout if it wins???

    I liked it a lot more @ 33/1 than the 11/1 it is now btw 😉

  11. Matt Bisogno says:

    No more entries today, please. They’re off for the first of our two impossible races!

  12. Matt Needham says:

    7.30 Byrd In Hand

    Apologies for lateness, crazy day at work and first chance I’ve had. Hope my selections can be included, for what they’re worth….. Think I just got my 5.25 selection in before the off.

  13. Matt Bisogno says:

    Fiery Oscar – favourite – wins the first! 5/2 not too much use to most, though…

  14. Mark says:

    7.30 Commercial – Sorry it’s late Matt ideally I prefer to see what Jockeys are on Form for the day. Can’t see this one out of the frame.

  15. Matt Bisogno says:

    And Flamborough Breeze doubles up for favourite backers! 3/1 the SP, so a maximum of 5.5 points profit available today.
