A much, much better week this week. I’d almost forgotten what it was like to enjoy a rush of winning bets and to see the profits rolling in. A fine weekly performance, primarily down to fine form demonstrated by both Precision Value and Racing Intelligence.
Others chipped in too, with five of the seven tipsters generating a profit, and one of those to not do so – Scottish Football Income Booster – losing only a couple of quid.
The hyperactive Racing Intelligence was the star, with what felt like a particularly busy week throwing up a series of good priced winners. As usual, I struggled to secure advised prices, but nonetheless the results and performance were strong. Monday kicked up winners at 8/1 and 13/2, which se the tone for much of the rest of the week. Further winners on Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday racked up the profit.
Precision Value also turned the heat up to produce some red hot form with at least one winner every day of the week. Tuesday saw us pick up three times, Wednesday hot two from two, another two winners on Thursday and Friday…it felt like shelling peas!
Elsewhere on the nags Bet Alchemist picked the winner of the Great St Wilfred Handicap, one of Ripon’s biggest races of the year. Lovely course, Ripon – up in the North Yorkshire countryside just north of the Yorkshire Dales, I can heartily recommend a visit once folk can return to watching live sport. Loads of great B&Bs in the area, top pubs with amazing food and ale…top notch!
Anyway, I digress.
The two golf services found players that placed in the weekend’s tournaments and we could easily have found a winner. Interesting to see from PGA Profit that he feels the value in the Top 10/20 markets may be drying up some – “stagnant” was the word used in context – with the emphasis perhaps now moving towards the each way/outright markets in which the service has excelled over the past years. In contrast, Golf Insider is still providing Top 20 market exchange odds without officially advising bets placed within this market. I presume this is also with an eye on the future, so it will be interesting to see what transpires.
Finally, the only bum note on the week was sounded by Racing Service 1, although the loss wasn’t a large one.
