22nd August

No particularly fancies today. A number of Stakes races for the juveniles which never make for the easiest betting medium - generally want a decent price to start.

Pleased to see Theladyinquestion winning yesterday. This year has been something of a learning curve and with making time for the blog plus studying it hasn't been ideal but from the small number of tips we have given we have done well and in truth this season has been all about finding the best approach. We have created problems by being too selective in ways and we have come to the conclusion it is best to just give more tips. Saying that, we rarely give tips shorter than 11/4 so we do draw a line at the price. We have attempted to be to precise at times and it is the classic that many decent bets are not put forward as tips which go and win and then the banker runs disappointingly. There is no logic to it and that is why the average must be the answer & why more bets isn't necessarily a bad thing.

We have an approach which details both form horses and statistical bets. Both compliment each other well & I feel this is the way forward.

I would like to thank all of the people who have supported the site and hope we haven't let anyone down with being so quiet on the tipping front. The blog and following the horses takes a huge amount of time and it can be difficult to find enough hours in the day. There is little doubt that in the future we will be more about giving tips rather than writing the blog for the sake of writing about horses.

Thanks for your support.

Jason - your post sounded a little downbeat so, for one, I'd like to say I think you've done fantastically well this season. Doing the homework for selected races on a daily basis and then writing up thoughts on a blog is an extremely time-consuming business; in addition you have your studying commitments. I wish you all the very best for the future.

Hi GeeDee,

I was having one of my contemplative moments. It is good to hear your thoughts and they are much appreciated. I feel happier in the sense that I know the best direction to take the blog which is good although often consider that I should have been a little wiser about this year. Like you say there is a lot to be thankful for and plenty of time to succeed. I feel happy with my thoughts.
