OK, just a very quick 'results' post tonight - there's a curry with my name on it, waiting for me rather impatiently.
Five racing services in action today and three produced profit but only enough to produce just a small profit overall.
Winning Racing Tips have had a stonking three days and today they found a winner in Pokfulham (Kelso - 9/2) and a superb 2.5pts profit. Chasemaster had a good day, finding amongst their three selections a winner (Trouper Clarence - Kempton - 11/4) for a near point profit. For anyone wondering, I don't follow their laying advice, simply because I don't like laying, but the service did also advise a successful lay (obviously) in Trouper Clarence's race. PJA managed to find six horses that couldn't reach the frame, but a nice winner (Via Galilei - Newbury - 9/1) was enough for a shade over a point's profit.
On The Nose had four selections, one of which placed (Doctor Foxtrot - Doncaster - 12/1) so just a small loss. 4PA was the service to drag performance down; three losers and with the way the service's selections are staked, it proved to be costly.
4PA: Staked 4pts, -4pts.
PJA NH: Staked 4.75pts, +1.062pts.
On The Nose: Staked 2.5pts, -0.5pts.
Winning Racing Tips: Staked 1.2pts, +2.5pts.
Chasemaster: Staked 1pt, +0.875pts.
Financial profit on the racing of £13.75.
And so to the football.
Football Elite provided a superb tip - Hannover to beat Bayern Munich (DNB) and they duly obliged at odds of over 3/1! Reading the analysis beforehand, win or lose, it was a great tip. Unfortunately, a rare foray into odds on territory with the day's second selection proved unsuccessful. Bloody typical!
Football Investor found four winners from their 13 selections and a nice profit on the day. Skeeve continued his solid form by providing a couple of points profit, Strike Zone got two from three but the smallest of profits, and The Sportsman's only bet was a winner.
Producing a deficit were The Football Analyst (one from two so only a marginal loss), Shaolin Betting (ditto), and Sports Investor, who did nothing to convince me that I was right to give them a reprieve with two losers (one of them returning half stakes).
Skeeve: Staked 25pts, +2.64pts.
Football Elite: Staked 2pts, +2.15pts.
Football Investor: Staked 13pts, +3.12pts.
Strike Zone: Staked 3pts, +0.02pts.
Sports Investor: Staked 2pts, -1.5pts.
Shaolin Betting: Staked 2pts, -0.22pts.
The Football Analyst: Staked 2pts, -0.2pts.
The Sportsman: Staked 0.15pts, +0.093pts.
Financial profit on the football of £150.
Saturday 5th March: Staked £1,827, +£163.75.
Week to date: Staked £3,222, +£334.27.
Month to date: Staked £3,092, +£313.27, roi 10.13%.
So, not spectacular returns by any stretch, but a darned better Saturday than the previous two.
Now...lamb jalfrezi, saag aloo, and a cold beer...laters.
