Lay of the day 17.04.10

New 13:30

Latansaa 1pt LAY

When i first looked at this race this morning this was my target for lay of the day and I wish i had posted then as this was top of the market. There is still plenty of value laying this as questions over the ground and other more suitable winners in the race. trainer stats for the race dont look very good either.

New Direction

Hi All

I’m still betting most days and still following the services however I am being more selective in my bets as I feel there are days where I am just overplaying the market. Its working out quite successfully as I am not following stuff blindly that I am being sent but looking at the races more deeply. I also found it tough to update the blog everyday with sometimes 20 odd bets to report on so from now on I’ll just report on the bets I PLACE rather than all the tips I am sent everyday.

I will report on the services general performance though and also let you know about any winners I miss which might make it an interesting read.

 I have also been following a lay system that I have been reading so I will post my lay of the day here as much as I possibly  can and see how that works out.

So let’s get started

My Lay of the day

3:00 New

my Lay of the day is Equiano in the 3:00 Newmarket . reasoning is based on trainer stats only 13% strike rate in this type of race at this track . The track stats are only a 31% strike rate for favourites in this type of race. Has no real recent form at this distance , in fact struggled all of last season hasn’t run since october last year and there are better horses in the race . I could go deeper but am busy at work today lol 

Equiano LAY – current odds on Betfair 4.6

Possible winner – Odds & Evens

 Lay Bank £500

Liability on Lay £18.50

Possible return £5.00

Blog update

Firstly a sincere apology for not keeping the blog up to date since last Tuesday but during Cheltenham there we so many bets I looked down on Friday evening to update them and there was just too any bets to look back on. The good news is that unlike a few horror  story’s I’ve seen  I got through Cheltenham relatively unscathed and since the weekend my bank is pretty much where I left it last week.

I will post Services to date later and start the week a fresh.

Cracking Cheltenham !!!

I well and truly broke my Cheltenham cherry today and what a start it was. Was very worried before the first race with roughly 38 points bet on the day  and not a nibble in the first race. I went like a lamb to the slaughter to Paddy Powers offer of refunding all losing bets if Dunguib won. Luckily I also had a couple of points on Dunguib at Betfred who were offering a free bet for ALL losing horses so I’ll cash that in on a winner I hope another time.

The Inside Rail were sending advice from their sister service The Form Guru and he had 2 big winners for the day in Chief Dan George & A New Story . Also a good day for SLH with 2 bets advised one at Cheltenham and one at Sedgefield.

I’ll outline all the bets and try and make sense of them below. There was a lot of cross over today with some bets being advised by 2 or 3 services so bets advised will differ from bets placed  so I did’nt always have the place part of an e/w or visa versa or if two services advised the smae horse I would split the stake.

Anyway I am left well in profit on the day and very happy . Still cautious though as looking at the amount of bets I had on today I could easily give it all back tomorrow but that’s another day. For one night I sleep well lol 🙂

As for tomorrow I work all day and take my Daughter to her Ice Skating lesson tomorrow night so I wont be able to update until at least Thursday. Good luck tomorrow if your playing 😉

Cheltenham Preview

Good Morning all its that time of the year ..If you read my about me section ( for fun ) on the right you will have worked out this is my first ever Cheltenham Festival and I am very excited and also very nervous.

The blog will operate differently this week as I expect there to be loads of tips and info , some  of which will be pointing me to the same punts but also lots contradicting each other so as much as I will publish the staking plans and results of my services I wont necessarily be following it all to the letter. Hopefully that will make the blog a bit more  interesting as you will see the glee when I swerve a loser and also the pain when I miss a winner 😦

Anyway I hope you enjoy the week and here’s hoping I have at least some of my bank left come Saturday 😉

Services to date week 3

Week 3 and things starting to get back on course. Matt made up some good ground this week considering the run bad run he had on Monday and Tuesday ending in a small profit for the week.  Nothing at all from The Inside Rail but I have spoken with them and they are looking to make up for that this week. SLH is down another 4pts this week but again listening to his review message confidence is high for the coming week. Football Elite broke even for me there or there abouts.

MattPJL Racing  +1.5pts

The Inside Rail   – no bets

Steve Lewis Hamilton – 4pts

Football Elite – even

To date

MattPJL Racing  to date +2.5pts

The Inside Rail to date +13pts

Steve Lewis Hamilton to date  -16pts

Football Elite – 2pts
