Four today

Ok am looking to continue the winning run with four today, including one double staker

It's good luck to:

Reignier Musselburgh 14:20 7/1 bet365 - double stake

Timbaa Yarmouth 15:10 14/1 bet365

Stellite Musselburgh 15:50 7/1 ladbrokes

Dimashq Musselburgh 17:20 7/1 stan james

Another excellent day, and another double stake winner which is brilliant.

Timbaa was withdrawn after getting unruly in the stalls after continuing to being heavily punted on course, so that may have been one which got away, I suppose we'll never know. Interesting to see how he gets on next race anyway.

Here's confirmation:

Reignier, 1st, 5/1sp

Timbaa - Non runner

Stellite, 1st, 13/2

Dimashq Musselburgh, 5th, 11/2

If you've been following the blog for a while you'll know that I switched staking plans to make sure my bank didn't go bust towards the end of March. I initially thought I'd take a small hit and carry on with the stakes I'd been playing with to see what happened, but then changed my mind and brought in a new reduced stake plan (i.e stakes halved if the bank is reduced by half).

If I hadn't changed my staking plan I'd be sitting with £439.05 tonight, but as it is I actually have £222.03. That's pretty sickening but still it shows we're on the right road. In terms of level stakes, the profit is now +56.92pts.

I don't want to get ahead of myself, and I hope I don't live to regret this, but it still amazes me the amount of people who go on the betfair forums and the like ridiculing people who follow the money - "those lemmings will never win!" they shout - well I hope I'm beginning to prove that if you get on the move early enough it can be a winning formula.

Watch out for 25 losers in a row now I've said that.. :-)


  1. two winners and a non-runner, nice work. Wish I'd been online early enough for the double!

  2. Cheers Scott, much appreciated

    The non runner was frustrating because Timbaa was backed down to around 5/1 before getting unruly in the stalls. Was an interesting mover too because the horse had done absolutely nothing before so somebody must have known something, but still mustn't grumble!

  3. Hi CD,
    It seems to be working out better now for you with your tried and trusted methods.
    A good return yesterday, so its nice to see your pulling back the losses from last month and going back in front.

  4. Thanks mate, yep looking good. Have been following your progress with interest too, am sure the winners will fire in again soon!

  5. Couple of decent wins there.
