The title of tonight’s post is slightly confusing but you’ll soon see why I’m a little bit annoyed.
Firstly, the feedback and advice I’ve had from every reader who has replied to last night’s post has been fantastic. Absolutely brilliant if I’m honest and I’m going to spend a good few days sifting through the emails and taking on board all of your comments. I couldn’t have asked for a better response and I’m amazed at the amount of nice people who are reading my blog. Thanks.
OK, on to today’s email. I spent over 2 hours of my time analysing 4 races last night. Two of my races were abandoned as Haydock was off, so I was left with my analysis of the two handicaps at Kempton.
In both races, I had the short-priced favourite down as the likely winner. I only mentioned these two horses in the email. I was struggling to see many negatives on either one to be honest but as I said in my email today, there is something inside of me that means I’ll never give these horses as a selection. I don’t see backing 2/1 shots in 16 runner handicaps as a way for us to make money in the long-run.
I’m liable to take some stick for this view but I’ll never change it. If readers want to back 2/1 shots in competitive handicaps, go and pay £100+ to a professional tipster every month. Don’t read my blog and don’t give me stick in an email when both of them win. Yeah, one reader wasn’t pleased I didn’t tip these two today……
Secondly, I received an abusive email straight after the second horse won from someone who had laid both the horses today. I’ll publish the email in a comment to this post if anyone wants me to but where the hell did it say in the email to lay both horses?
Answers on a postcard please.
I was very annoyed this morning that I had spent another couple of hours looking at form and analysing races to not be able to give out a tip today. It would have been very easy for me to tell everyone to back these two today but I didn’t think they would win 1 in 3 races. Hence, they weren’t 2/1 chances in my view pre-race.
Clearly, I’ve got that wrong and I’ll hold my hands up but let’s be honest here, they were 2/1 in 16 runner races. It was an easy mistake to make and I’ll make lots more of these errors in the future. The second one was lucky to get up to win anyway.
If people just want winners at any price, I’ll start tipping odds on shots in 2 horse races if there is a demand for this sort of thing. I’ll keep the 25/1 penalty kicks to myself and a few others who believe in what I’m trying to do on here.
Apologies for the slight rant tonight but I’m annoyed at myself for not telling everyone to back these two winners today and I don’t need an abusive email from someone who has done their bollocks trying to lay my selections. They have now been removed from the distribution list as was their wish.
Today, I gave up my day of trading to try to find some winners for tomorrow and annoyingly, there is a large chance that the meeting may be off. This could be the third day in a row when I’ve spent time looking at races only for them to be abandoned. I know this is just bad luck but it is a bit annoying as I only have one month to prove what I can do to everyone, so it means it’s another opportunity gone for me.
I hope some of you had a good day…….
