25th September

A few more races today and couple of interest. I will have a look at the betting markets before I come to any conclusions and update at 1pm as usual. The blog has been more specific of late rather than simply talking about races when they have no likelihood of tips. If I write in such general terms I feel obliged to give a tentative selection which isn't ideal as it gives a rather distorted view so would rather comment on specific races/selections if they detail or very likely to feature a tip. I will consider how I can best find a working balance between the two. All feedback is gratefully received.


A watching day.

Hi Jason,
I only put selections forward that carry my own money into the race, which personally I think if you wouldn't bet on it yourself, why tip it!!
And having lost a bit these last few months :(
I find it gives me the hunger to work and get it back, and before you say it, YES I'm getting hungrier LOL

Hi Anthony,

Yes, you have to draw the line somewhere so I agree that it is best to only give actual bets. I have been on something of a learning curve all season :-).

The season always has its highs and lows but you are talented so you don't have any problems.

Regards,
Jason

I would disagree about not having problems as my latest results testify :(
Choosing the right races is sometimes the hardest call I find, as spending time doing the research and not coming up with a selection can seem a pointless exercise on occasions.
I think knowing when to draw the line is probably the best trait to become accustomed to, but still a difficult one to judge every time.
I dont think anyone can ever know everthing in this game and
I remember some years ago when they limited field sizes in most handicaps, Instead of ranges from 10st to 7st and under, I thought the new system compressed the weights a lot and made handicapping tighter.
It means we have to accept that we will forever be learning and just have to adapt to the changes...

Hi Anthony,

There is always something to learn. And like you say, even when you have a set or structured approach there is always some change by the powers that be which makes you wonder what next. I can't say I have looked at nursery race with the two-year-olds this year. I think they can make very good bets at times but with so much racing I find it difficult to keep up with every race type. I feel a little disappointed with the season in ways as I have missed some decent bets, but that is always the case. I am trying to have a disciplined approach and keep to it. I feel I have the potential to do very well and will be doing my best to progress. You will fight back. I know at times things can be so crazy and frustrating but ability prevails. You are plenty good enough to do just that.

Regards,
Jason
