A new direction.

Quick weekend round up, as is the norm for a Sunday night.

Before I provide that round up though, a suggestion to go take a look at Graeme's 'The Football Analyst' blog (see link to right). Yesterday's post follows the theme of last week, ie. what we are in this gambling game for. Graeme doesn't do short posts so I suggest you do what I did. Make yourself a cuppa, get comfy, and have a good read.

Saturday's Betting

Great to have the football back, and a winning start to the new season for Football Elite (1/1). The Sportsman also played in two matches and was successful in one, thanks to an injury time winner. I had forgotten just how agonising football can be to follow when there is money on the outcome.

Football Elite: Staked 1pt, +1.2pts.
The Sportsman: Staked 0.3pts, -0.013pts.

I know it's a cliche, but On The Nose are currently on fire! At present, they are the gambling equivalent to a bus in Tottenham so ablaze are they. Four bets, two winners (Dhaamer - Haydock - 12/1 reduced to 9.6/1 following a Rule 4 deduction, and Averroes - Ascot - 6/1). They have had quite a week and deserve the day off they enjoyed today.

Winning Racing Tips finished even, their one tip finishing third (Monopolize - Newmarket - 5/1), whilst Northern Monkey and The Market Examiner were luckless.

Northern Monkey: Staked 1.25pts, -1.25pts.
The Market Examiner: Staked 2pts, -2pts.
On The Nose: Staked 2pts, +6.8pts.
Winning Racing Tips: Staked 1pt, level.

Saturday 6th August: Staked £369, +£201.54.

Today's Betting

A very quiet day with just five horses backed, but a lovely winner for 4PA (Moonlight Cloud - Deauville - 11/1) ensured it was another profitable one. 4PA did also back the losing favourite in the race, but the right horse won for greater profit.

No success for Northern Monkey (0/1) or The Market Examiner (0/2).

4PA: Staked 2.5pts, +5.1pts.
Northern Monkey: Staked 0.25pts, -0.25pts.
The Market Examiner: Staked 2pts, -2pts.

Sunday 7th August: Staked £129, +£175.
August to date: Staked £1,265, +£628.31, roi 49.66%.
Running total (inc. fees): +£319.51, roi 3.75%.

Just before I go, a quick heads up on something that over time, will add something to the blog. I'm starting to learn the trading game. I'm hiring some expert advice and guidance for my period of learning, which I fully envisage to be a pretty lengthy period of time indeed. No details just yet, but all will be revealed in the fullness of time.

Now go and read Graeme's post...
