Oh, I wish it could be Cheltenham…every day!

There’s very much a feeling of after the Lord Mayor’s show this week.  A bit like when you’ve gone back to work after a fantastic holiday, I find myself continually thinking, “this time last week…”.

Not only is the sport itself mesmerizing, but the profits always tend to be pretty good too.  Last week’s Festival proved to be a bumper week for betting, with the 5%+ total bank growth achieved over the four days about what I would consider to be coughed up during a good month.

A big tip of the hat to the tipsters who worked so diligently and conscientiously to produce that profit.  I can only imagine the level of work they each put into the week, and it is to be admired.  I know that Racing Service 2 was unable to come up with the goods last week, but I also know he put in hours and hours of work.   It was only for the rub of the green going against him with a couple of the tips that the week ended in a loss and not significant profit.  That must be tremendously frustrating – putting in such a level of effort without seeing the rewards for it is something that I think would drive me mad – but I guess that’s the nature of the game.

Overall, Cheltenham has made me pause to think, and realize just how much the guys whose services I follow deserve to do well.  They give everything, and that is to be admired.

Cheltenham Day 4: What A Week!

The dust has settled, and when looking back, what a fantastic four days of sport we’ve had this week.  It’s a cliché I know, but for highs and lows, there really is nothing to compare to the Cheltenham Festival.

To me, jump racing has soul, and whilst Royal Ascot and the other huge meetings on the Flat in the summer have their attractions, I don’t find them as stirring or as satisfying as I do Cheltenham, Kempton over Christmas, or Aintree in April.  Success at the top level of the sport as an owner is far more accessible to far more people over the sticks than it is the flat, and that’s even when allowing for the mighty powers of Gigginstown and JP McManus.  There are more stories that warm the heart, and then of course there is the utmost respect and admiration for both horse and jockey who literally risk their lives in every race for our viewing pleasure.

It helps, naturally, when you make a few bob on the week too, and that is definitely what has happened this year.  Let’s first provide the highlights of Day 4…

Racing Service 1 got off to a flyer with the first two home in the hugely competitive County Handicap Hurdle, Ch’tibello (8/1) and We Have A Dream (33/1).  With another selection placed in the last – Defi Bleu, 14/1 – it was another excellent day.

Northern Monkey couldn’t quite follow up the previous day’s heroics, and Racing Service 2 found it all a bit of a struggle again, although he did bow out with the winner of the last in Early Doors at 11/2.

Early Doors was a winner for Racing Service 3 too, as was Hazel Hill (11/2) in the penultimate race of the week.  With Coeur Sublime each way coming in second at 25/1 in the opening Triumph Hurdle, it was a great day for this tipster too.

Racing Service 1: Staked 8pts, +8.375pts.

Northern Monkey: Staked 4.625pts, -3.593pts.

Racing Service 2: Staked 4pts, -0.75pts.

Racing Service 3: Staked 7pts, +11.875pts.

Day 4 ROI: 44.08%.

As for the week, it can only be called a great success.  Racing Service 1 was the most consistent whilst as was the case last year, Northern Monkey had one amazing day that ensured an exceptionally good week.  Racing Service 2 found it difficult after the first day and has admitted to questioning how he approaches Cheltenham week moving forward.  Finally, Racing Service 3 demonstrated his class.  Here are the figures for the week:

Racing Service 1: Staked 29pts, +18.75pts, ROI 64.65%.

MVS (Lite): Staked 1pt, +1.75pts, ROI 175%.

Northern Monkey: Staked 19.25pts, +16.482pts, ROI 85.62%.

Racing Service 2: Staked 19pts, -7.75pts, ROI -40.78%.

Racing Service 3: Staked 33.25pts, +18.275pts, ROI 54.96%.

Total ROI: 36.89%.  This equates to bank growth for the portfolio as a whole of 5.75% – that’s some achievement in four days!

Cheltenham Day 3: Forging Ahead Again.

So after a day each to me and the bookies, I’m pleased to say that, primarily due to the exploits of Northern Monkey and Racing Service 1, I’ve forged into the lead again with one day of the Festival to go.

Yesterday was a busy day for Racing Service 1 which got off to a flyer with the winner in the first – Defi De Seuil (3/1).  Cuneo (16/1) landed some place money in the next and Spiritofthegames (8/1) did likewise in the impossible looking Brown Advisory Handicap.  It was in the last race though that what had been a good day was turned into an excellent one, when Any Second Now (9/1) stormed home up the hill to win and The Young Master (16/1) gave up some more place money.

The Stayers Hurdle provided MVS (Lite) with their only Festival bet of the week to date and a successful one it was too when the redoubtable Paisley Park (7/4) came from a seemingly impossible position to land the spoils.

Northern Monkey had been experiencing a challenging week but yesterday the usual NMP tactic of antepost betting and getting stakes rolling onto selections via the use of multiples with horses running in bog standard weekday racing paid off….big time!  Wayne was all over Defi De Seuil and had backed it antepost at 11/1, and had also doubled it up with the winner of the second race Sire Du Berlais (11/2) – which had also been backed antepost at 14/1!  To add to that, Sire Du Berlais had been put in a double with a previous winner – so those two horses alone provided a heck of a profit.  That wasn’t all though, as the winner of the 4.10, Siruh Du Lac (8/1 antepost) won at 9/2.  Obviously there were losers too, but what a day for NMP.

Sadly, both Racing Service 2 and Racing Service 3 drew blanks on the day, but overall Day 3 has proven to be the best day yet this week.  Fingers crossed for Day 4.

Racing Service 1: Staked 8pts, +9.875pts.

MVS (Lite): Staked 1pt, +1.75pts.

Northern Monkey: Staked 6.625pts, +22.726pts.

Racing Service 2: Staked 7pts, -7pts.

Racing Service 3: Staked 5.75pts, -5.75pts.

Total ROI: 67.89%.

Cheltenham Day 2: The Bookies Strike Back

When I looked at today’s racing, I thought the card at Cheltenham looked near impossible.  Huge handicaps, no value in the Champion Chase in which Altior obviously dominated the market but looked foolhardy to oppose, and a Bumper to finish the day’s action in which all horses had won a race but hadn’t exactly visited the racetrack a prolific number of times.  And so it proved, as the tipsters all found the going heavy – figuratively as well as literally.

No winners for Racing Service 1, but a bit of good news in that I completely forgot yesterday to include their antepost selections for Day 1 which included Klassical Dream at 8/1.  I’ll add them to the end of Festival figures after Friday’s racing.  As for today’s action, they managed a couple of placed horses, but a loss on the day.

Things were going horribly for Northern Monkey; no winners yesterday and none today until the Cross Country Chase, the fifth race on the card.  But up stepped Tiger Roll, backed at 11/10 in a win double with a horse that had previously come in at 2/1, so a decent return that dragged the day into profit.

Nothing to report from Racing Service 2 which drew a blank today, although acknowledging that the racing was a form reader’s nightmare kept stakes sensibly low.

And finally, Racing Service 3 couldn’t continue yesterday’s excellent form, but by backing the extremely well-backed Envoir Allen in the last at 9/2 managed to essentially break even.

Day 2 Figures

Racing Service 1: Staked 5pts, -1.1pts.

Northern Monkey: Staked 3pts, +1.725pts.

Racing Service 2: Staked 4pts, -4pts.

Racing Service 3: Staked 8.5pts, -0.25pts.

Total: ROI -27.71%.

Cheltenham Day 1: Here we go again.

For something different this week, I thought I’d blog day by day to cover the events of the Cheltenham Festival – something I did last year.  The meeting has, historically, been kind to me although I always get the feeling that things could so easily go very, very wrong.  If ever there was a meeting where betting success or failure is decided by very fine margins, it’s this one.

I’ll confess to some feelings of trepidation this morning when it became clear that heavy rain was due.  It’s impossible to say the extent to which the ground and going conditions will be effected and that must make the job of the tipster even harder.

So how did our tipsters fare?

It was a relatively quiet day for Racing Service 1 who issued just the three bets.  With two of the horses placing – Stormy Island – 8/1 in the 4.10 and Springtown Lake – 16/1 in the 4.50, a small profit was made.

If I remember correctly (and I may not), Northern Monkey made considerable hay on the first day of last year’s Festival.  Sadly, the opposite was true today.  We had eight horses running – a mix of singles and those with stakes rolled up as a result of multiples – and none of them even threatened to win.  Luck wasn’t on Wayne’s side as two of the more fancied runners, Buveur D’Air in the Champion Hurdle and Benie Des Dieux who went off as the odds on favourite in the Mare’s Hurdle, fell, the latter with the race at her mercy when upending at the last!  Not NMP’s day.

It looked like Racing Service 2 was also going to suffer from a dose of bad luck too when Kalashnikov – 9/1 was brought down in the Arkle when travelling well.  The rain scuppered the chances of Minella Rocco in the next but come the 4.50, things turned with A Plus Tard – 7/1.  You will never see an easier winner of one of Cheltenham’s ultra-competitive handicaps, 16 lengths the margin on the line between winner and second and it could have been twice that had the jockey so wished.

The honours for the day though go to Racing Service 3.  Sure, there were a couple of losers, but there was also Espoir D’Allen – 11/1, winner of the Champion Hurdle (backed without Apples Jade), supported by Big River – 28/1 which contributed a decent each way return by finishing in the frame of the 2.50.  Tower Bridge – 8/1 chased home A Plus Tard in the 4.50 for another return and all in, an excellent day for the Irishman.

Racing Service 1: Staked 3pts, +0.8pts.

Northern Monkey: Staked 5pts, -4.375pts.

Racing Service 2: Staked 4pts, +4pts.

Racing Service 3: Staked 12pts, +12.4pts.

Day 1: ROI 46.06%.

Review: February 2019

A frustrating month that roughly splits into two parts.  The first half, which saw good profits rack up, especially from the likes of Racing Service 1, Racing Service 3, and Northern Monkey.  And then a second half that gave a fair chunk of that profit back.

It’s been something of a strange month too, with the outbreak of Equine ‘Flu bringing UK racing to a sudden halt for a few days.  Whether this disrupted the rhythm of the racing tipsters in the portfolio can never be ascertained with 100% certainty, but the figures suggest the outbreak had something of an adverse effect.

Racing Service 1 made a lot of profit over the very first weekend of the month, profit which ensured that February will go down as a good time, but the fact is that from that first weekend to the last, a loss was made.  Northern Monkey belied it’s reputation as something of a Flat racing specialist by having a good few weeks, and it was good to see Football Lay Profits perform well and regain much of January’s losses.

Not enjoying themselves as much was Football Service 2, but I’m confident this will be just a blip and a return to winning ways won’t be long in coming.

So, overall, a profit for each of the portfolios.  The best performer was the ‘Starter’ portfolio and stakes will raise slightly again through March to reflect the growth achieved.

Not a remarkable month by any means, but one that turned a profit, and I’ll never complain when that is the case.

Gimme more ‘MBG’.

‘MBG’ – Minimum Bet Guarantee.  Or put another way, ‘The Promised Land’ when it comes to us world-weary, cynical, grumpy old bettors who have been worn down over the years by unfair bookmaking practices and account closures.

The MBG is our big hope.  And whilst it’s been good to see the likes of BetVictor, Betfair Sportsbook, and Skybet all implement an MBG policy, we need it to prove to be a success for the firms dipping their toes into the water so that their competitors will be tempted to join in the fun.

Fingers crossed that’s happening, with BetUK being the latest book to lay a bet to win a certain, minimum amount on the horses.  I’ve some experience of BetUK myself and have been using them for a few months now.  I hadn’t found their offering neither inferior nor superior to that of any of the other online bookmakers. Their prices hold for about as long, sometimes they offer a very competitive price and other times they don’t – all pretty unremarkable really.

That they’ve now introduced an MBG though, makes them remarkable in the true sense of the word, ie. worth remarking on.  I would urge all of you to ensure you are signed up to each book that offers an MBG and to take advantage.  Why wouldn’t you?

Although not quoted on Oddschecker, because of a shared platform with certain other books I use the odds quoted by RedZone and SportNation as a guide – both of which are on Oddschecker.  90% of the time the same prices are offered by BetUK, which is useful to know.

I’ve been thinking too about the wider implications should the MBG ‘movement’ really take off.  The one question I keep coming back to in my own mind is whether tipsters will begin to issue their selections at a later time each morning.  Some services do of course release their bets at a time of day when the MBG can be used, but as generally speaking the bookies offering it do so from 10.30 or 11.00am each day, followers of tipsters who release at an earlier time aren’t able to benefit.  Instead of course, they have to duck and dive in an attempt to keep their accounts unrestricted.  So, as MBG (hopefully) grows, will it change the way tipsters work?

Melting into the background

I can remember the time when I was first prevented from having a bet with an online bookie as if it was yesterday.  It was a real badge of honour, the betting equivalent to coming home safely from flying the last mission in the skies above enemy territory.  I’d made it.  I had the bookies running scared.  This time next year not only would I, like Del Boy, be a millionaire, but I’d also be a “face” (it didn’t concern me that it might prove be tricky to be a “face” online, but there you go).  I was young and foolish – forgive me.

Roll on more years than I care to count, and now of course when I get the email saying that the traders, in their infinite wisdom, had decided that my business is unwanted, it’s a real pain in the a*se.  Usable accounts have become a valuable commodity, and are to be nurtured and protected.

The recent SBC pieces from the bookie insider have made for fascinating reading.  I wish I’d had the insight they provide years ago!  Still, there’s no point worrying about things that can’t be changed and to be fair, I feel I have already been doing most (but not all) of the things suggested in the articles to stay under the bookie radar.

Really, most of the right things to do are common sense.  I never, unless it’s in one of the big races of the year, place bets the night before racing.  Doing so really is asking for trouble.  You may as well send a personal email to the Head of Trading asking them to close your account because you’re going to take advantage of ricks in the market when the bookie is at their most vulnerable.

I always split my stakes so that I never place more than £30 on one bet with one book, and whenever possible, I’ll try to limit the bet to a maximum £20.  Even if using three books to strike what is effectively one bet, the effort is worth it in the long run.

On a similar note, I’ve learnt not to take an outstanding price being offered by just one or two books.  Again, by doing so, tempting though it may be, you really are going to cause the alarm bells to ring loud and clear for the bookies.  Similarly, only betting at a consistent time on one sport has to stick out like a sore thumb.  More and more have I started placing small bets on random events and laying off on the exchanges to ensure a tiny loss.  If this makes betting patterns harder to spot, it’s got to be a good thing.

So look, use your common sense.  Don’t get greedy, and do what it takes to protect those accounts for as long as you possibly can.  Next week I’ll talk about how betting high volume/small amounts might be one way to go about things to a. generate a good profit, and b. keep your accounts healthy at the same time.

Performance from Monday 11th to Sunday 17th February

It was a strange week with not one bet struck over Monday and Tuesday as the effects of Equine Flu’ continued.  All back to normal on the Wednesday though, but it was as if the tipsters need time to find their stride again.  No noteworthy individual performances this week.

A quiet week

Equine ‘flu is pretty nasty, from what I can gather.  Let’s face it, anyone who has suffered from the human form of ‘flu knows just how debilitating it can be.  I’m not talking about heavy colds, but full on, proper ‘flu.  I’ve only ever had it once, and that was over 20 years ago but boy, did it lay me low.  I remember literally not being able to get out of bed unaided and I lost a load of weight in just a few days.

Anyway, it’s the bloomin’ horses who got it this week, and I guess they’re not able to patch themselves up with a Lemsip and hot water bottle.  Fortunately the British Horseracing Authority have deemed the risk of a pandemic pretty small and have allowed racing to re-start, albeit under a very controlled environment.

At this time of year I suppose we could reasonably expect a prolonged spell of blank racing days due to bad weather.  Frozen tracks in February are not exactly unheard of, but this is the first major non-weather related disruption to the sport that I can recall since the Foot & Mouth epidemic that hit us back in 2001.  That caused Cheltenham to be cancelled – let’s not even go there, eh!?!

So all in all, as you can imagine, it’s been a pretty quiet week on the betting front, with our racing tipsters largely sitting at home twiddling their thumbs and wondering if they can gain an edge down the dogs at Hackney.  Meydan and the racing over in Ireland has produced some action, and well done to Racing Service 3, who had a stormer of a few days.  Winners at 7/2, 8/1, 4/1 and 15/2 have kept the gambling wolves from the betting door, an kept things ticking over despite the relative lack of action.

Adapt or die.

I found this a fascinating read: The Inside Story of How One Bookmaker Restricts it’s Customers

For years we have pieced together some of the dos and don’ts when it comes to looking after our valuable bookmaker accounts.  The SBC have put together quite brilliant guides to keeping accounts viable for as long as possible, and various tipsters have proffered their advice on the matter too.  Time and experience has led to me being able to keep accounts open and usable for much longer than had previously been the case, but even so there was always a feeling that we were all making guesses as to exactly what would draw bookmaker’s attention to our betting activity and invite restrictions and closures, albeit highly educated guesses.

Finally though, we have a real ‘insider’s’ view and a detailed breakdown of how a typical bookmaking firm will go about assessing a customer’s betting activity and their stake factoring of that account.  The bookmaker would justify their process as ‘risk management’.  Having read this article I’d not use such politically correct language to describe their methods and approach!

The recurring thought as I read through the post however, was that as folk who bet with discipline and a strategy to make long term profit, we must adapt our betting as we go along, or die.  The information we now have enables us to really box clever when it comes to maximizing the lifespan of our online bookmaker accounts, but every boxer tires over time and no fight lasts forever.  We have to accept that ultimately, no matter how clever we are at looking after our accounts, there will come a time when we have restrictions imposed – that is a fact that we can’t ignore.

Yes, there are people who once one set of accounts are rendered useless open a new set – moving house was a godsend to me in this respect – but even then, and no matter how many times this process might be repeated, it is more savvy to look at other approaches that will allow out betting to continue ad infinitum.

I now use Exchanges more than I ever did.  The growth and development of Smarkets and Matchbook is significant and with their low rates of commission and regular ‘no’ or ‘reduced’ commission deals, these have become essential betting weapons to have in our armoury.  The traditional monopoly of Betfair is being eroded, and that can only be a good thing.  I’m finding I’m placing more and more bets on horses via Smarkets now, and being able to match officially advised odds more and more frequently.  I’ve also started to follow lay services which a year or so ago, I wouldn’t have done, simply because it involves laying.  It’s not my preferred method of betting, but like I say, adapt or die.

Look at betting on football more, perhaps, particularly into the more liquid markets, and again the exchanges are very useful here.  And as account restrictions do bite, then make sure to follow services that acknowledge the difficulties of getting on and make their betting advice as easy to follow as possible, something that Football Service 2 has done with tremendous success.

Your Comments & Questions Welcome

Mindful of the interest in the topic of restrictions – I welcome any comments or questions you might have on it and my portfolio, which I will do my best to answer or highlight in future posts. You can either comment on each post or email them to and he will forward them onto me.


Performance from Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd February

It’s been a decent start to the month, but only three days of betting is not enough for me to get carried away with, so at this point I’ll simply say well done for a good weekend to Racing Service 1, Football Lay Profits, Northern Monkey and Racing Service 3.
