Saturday Bet - 80/20 - Newcastle

Just the one 80/20 bet at Newcastle 2.05 it's the Nicky Henderson Runner Top Notch.

Should be all the better from his recent run at Haydock, and Nicky overall does well when sending
runners north to Newcastle.

£8  Place and £2 Win  Total Stake  £10

Just To Re-Cap Clarity

Regarding the handicap selections, and staking plan, take note chasing losses is not the perfect route
to gain a profit, its not my first choice for staking, but can be used correctly to the size of your capital, and don't be over greedy, lower your stakes. why not paper trade first and see how it works,
find the most comfortably level for staking.

I shall also be running alongside the selections to win singles on each, which can reap rewards long term, i advise a capital bank of £100 staking at 1% level, this covers all angles and takes away all
emotions form betting  mentality and physical.

Best Of Luck Today.

Newbury Handicap Saturday 1-15

As mentioned yesterday i shall be concentrating and focusing on one main Handicap race on Saturday.  This shall be the 1-15 at Newbury Sir Peter O'Sullevan Handicap Chase Class 3
over 2m and 6 furlongs.

My selections are based on the criteria - Trainer Form - Jockey Form - Speed Ratings - Course Form
Going - Distance - Statistics Form Data.

Regarding staking, example our aim shall be to accumulate overall a profit of £10 every Saturday and
any losses shall be recouped and rolled over to the following week.

In general i advise to stake as all of our selections are based at 4/1 and shall be backing four against
the field.

So we shall be staking a total of £10 which is 4 X £2.50 on each selection.
As a recurrence factor our selections are backed, due to the volume of Saturday racing, but i shall use
SP returns on all bets, but generally advise to use best odds guaranteed bookmakers.
Recommended bank  £750 which shall protect and encounter long term results.

You may wish to back them all as win singles, which can also over the long term pay dividends.

On many occasions i have found as a rule of thumb highlighting one of the selections pre-race as
a back and lay trade.

Most Importantly here are the selections.

Midnight Prayer

If any one of these is a non runner replace with, more than one non runner no bet advised.

Friday Bet - Wolverhampton - 80/20

After yesterday's briefing blog regarding Cool As Ice in the 6.45 at Wolverhampton.

We recommend a 80/20 bet example 80% of your stake on the place market with Betfair and 20%
of your stake upon the win market, this covers all angles and safe guards your capital bank.

With these bets i advise staking at 5% of your capital bank example bank of £200 as we shall not be
overloading with multiple bets daily it's based over long term capital success.

£8 Place Cool As Ice   £2 Win Cool As Ice

I shall record all results at SP returns for the benefit of all for live preview of results.

Best Wishes


Review -  Cool As Ice ran with choke out, and a  little rusty in hindsight after 300 days off track
no excuses as reported been working well at home, may be next time.

Around 60% of all races run in Britain each year are Handicaps, these are the races where the
Handicappers try to give each horse an equal chance of winning by allocating them different weights.

From this Saturday I shall be sharing with you all, my one main Handicap race that i shall focus on.

South African Jockey Bernard Fay d' Herbe

Leading South African Jockey Bernard Fay d' Herbe is set for his UK debut at Wolverhampton on
Friday as he partners the 4 year old filly Cold As Ice for trainer William Haggas.

Cold As Ice ( South African Import ) has won five of her seven races, which have been at Kenilworth, includes a pair of impressive grade two victories.

Bernard has a contract with the owners Kathy Finch and Bridget Kieswetter and they asked him to ride the filly for her all weather debut in the 19,000 32Red Fillies Condition Stakes.

Bernard rode her on Tuesday morning and seemed very happy with her reported William Haggas.

       My Tribute - Pat Eddery 1952-2015

                  A Genius Horseman, A Gentleman  

It was a great privilege to see the master employ his trade on many occasions, Pat was the Jockey i used to look out for, as he always gave his ability, judgement and skill the ultimate test when race riding. My first ever wager i had was on Detroit winning the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe in 1980.

              My Condolences and Best Wishes go out to all the Family.

                      Introduction - Simon Long Racing

My first ever memories into the world of the Sport of Kings.

Was when i was a young child my parents used to take me to our local racecourse York, i used to sit on the outer perimeter fence at the 3 furlong marker.

Waiting with great anticipation for the horses to approach from the
distance, they flashed past so fast, with the jockey's whip in full flow motion, urging there mounts, 
and shouting to fellow jockey's as they started to make a move for a serious challenging position.
With the horses hooves making the turf divots fly up into the air, those were the good old day's with
jockey's L.Piggott, J.Mercer, F.Durr. It certainly was in my blood from then on.

Both of my Grandfather's and Father had a keen interest and over the following years ahead, i learned
so much from them regarding betting and placing of bets.
I remember doing odd jobs and saving my paper round money, so that i could have a flutter, i recall
asking kindly the owner of our local betting shop "Please can i have 50p each way on Detroit for the
Prix De L'Arc Triomphe 1980" as that weekend i was going to visit my Grandfather in Birkenhead,  
and i told him Grandad i have a betting slip with the winner of the Arc !
