Going to be a typical weekend post; primarily a breakdown of the action. More of the analytical stuff from Monday night.
Erm. Horse racing. Isn't it great? Six services in action today. Five of them produced a profit. The winners kept coming...like shelling peas. Strange old game, this. Wonder if we'll have the backlash tomorrow?
Northern Monkey hadn't really showed me what they can do since I joined. I've never doubted them though. Their record last year was outstanding, the write ups for the selections show sound reasoning and I have liked the feel of the service. The only thing missing has been profits (and I am still substantially down on the year to date). But today's tipping was top, top class. One selection, heavily staked, win only at a decent price (Curtains - Lingfield - 8/1). It was actually tipped at 10s but due to work, I couldn't grab that. Still, I'm not complaining.
Similarly inspired today were Chasemaster. Three tips today, two winners, and the third selection, a 22/1 shot, was quietly working itself into contention, certainly for a place, when it fell in the latter stages. We still had the winner of that one though (Elzahann - Sedgefield - 11/2) and that had been preceded by another winner (Calusa Caldera - Newbury - 11/1). Wow!
The very epitome of consistency this month has been Winning Racing Tips and today they provided another winner from their only selection (Scriptwriter - Sedgefield - 4/1). Over 73% of their tips this month have finished in the frame.
PJA NH found a winner amongst their five today (Calusa Caldera - Newbury - 11/1). Here was an example of two services tipping the same horse working out very nicely indeed.
Finally for the services producing a profit, ProBandit quietly found a winner from their only tip today (Rhaal - Wolverhampton - 4/1).
The only service not joining the merriment today was On The Nose. Even here though, I had a stroke of fortune. I understaked a losing double. Stupid, stupid mistake to make and despite getting away with it, I'm beating myself up. Can't afford to make pathetic errors like that because as sure as eggs are eggs, there will come a time when it will lead to missing out on good profits. What a plonker!
