Catch up.

As promised, a quick run through of what has happened this week.

Tuesday 12th February
While I was freezing me wotsits off at Edgeley Park, Stockport, Graeme Dand's big 7/22 hope was doing the business for us nicely (Brentford to bt Stevenage at 1.905) to continue the fine start that the 7/22 home bets have had to the month. Unfortunately The Sportsman's bet in Scotland on the footie failed to be landed by the absence of just the one goal.

There was no joy at all on the horses; Northern Monkey (0/1) and On The Nose (0/2).

Northern Monkey: Staked 1.5pts, -1.5pts.
On The Nose: Staked 1pt, -1pt.

The Football Analyst (7/22): Staked 1pt, +0.905pts.
The Sportsman: Staked 0.15pts, -0.15pts.
Trial service: Staked 4pts, -4pts.

Wednesday 13th February
Very quiet with just Winning Racing Tips getting involved, their each way double containing a winner and a placed horse.

Winning Racing Tips: Staked 0.8pts, -0.13pts.

Trial service: Staked 8pts, -8pts.

Thursday 14th February
A better day.

Northern Monkey found an easy winner amongst three selections (Thecornishcockney - Kempton - 5/1 and 9/2), Winning Racing Tips finding a big-priced horse to place (Snowboarder - Meydan - 16/1), and the one The Sportsman Racing bet was a winner too (Coverholder - Kelso - 10/11). No return for On The Nose (0/1).

On The Oche turned a small profit from three bets in the Premier League which threw up one win (Andy Hamilton (DNB) vs James Wade at 2.2), one bet returning stakes, and one loser.

Northern Monkey: Staked 2.75pts, +1.2pts.
On The Nose: Staked 0.5pts, -0.5pts.
Winning Racing Tips: Staked 0.2pts, +0.22pts.
The Sportsman Racing: Staked 0.5pts, +0.454pts.

On The Oche: Staked 1.5pts, +0.1pts.
Trial service: Staked 6pts, +4pts.

And there we have it. Speak soon.


  1. This betting game is a hard one to take part in. i am with two high volune services one the highest rated on sbc and the bad run each of them are on in the last few weeks would make a saint give his faith up.
    Take today for example over 30 selections just a couple of small winners very hard to get up each day and chase prices after days like today.

    It is a very lonely existence being a punter most people would just say give it up but us punters know it is not as simple as that.

    1. Sorry to hear that it's not going so well at the moment.

      I'm guessing one of the services is Systematic Betting? If so, I guess you've just got to hang in there - their record is superb so I'm sure it will turn around for you sooner or later.

      Fingers crossed for you anyway - here's hoping for a quick recovery for you.


  2. Thanks rowan hope so excellent blog BTW ..
