'Arc' fav ORFEVRE advised on 26th June

For regular readers of the blog, it will come as no surprise that I advised an antepost wager on ORFEVRE way back on 26th June when the odds on the horse for the race were 7/1. My antepost selections are few and far between as I only make an advice when I think there is real value to be had. Now, after a sparkling trial for the big race this Sunday,  ORFEVRE is the 5/2 fav.

The jumps season moves out of 1st gear this week and meetings are becoming more regular. At Newton Abbot today, there is a runner from my alert list, SPORTING BOY in the 4:20. He went on my list after a good win over hurdles last November and then had the winter off, returning to the track in March.  He probably spent too long in the field as he looked unfit on his return then went chasing for the summer.  He's not looked an enthusiastic chaser and so could be interesting returning to hurdles today. At odds of 13/2 (Bet Victor and Corals) he's worth a small (half point) each way wager.   This season I'm wagering to £20 a point till 31st October,  so I'm having £10 each way at 13/2. My starting bank is £2,000.

Thanks for reading this blog and I hope you get enjoyment from it.

Jumps season about to go into full swing

This week I have been having a few small wagers on the horseracing and managed to find a winner at Newmarket (which I tweeted beforehand) in MISS FRANCE @ 9/2.
There was a good meeting at Perth which provided some good opportunities, especially for followers of Irish trainer Gordon Elliot. He sent over 4 horses, and 3 of them won.  Altho' I didn't recommend it, I managed to get 9/2 about his winner CASTLETOWN BRIDGE.
I've been going thru' my horse alert list which I've carried over from last season, taking out a few who haven't gone forward or have been caught by the handicapper, and adding a couple of others. The list threw up a couple of selections yesterday, including the 7/1 winner AHYAKNOWYERSELF. This horse had been on my alert list since running 2nd at Ffos Las on 14th October last year. He quickly followed that run up with a win later in the month after which he was off the track for a year. Brought back with a "pipe-opener" at Stratford on the 7th September, he was well primed for the run yesterday and looked a well handicapped horse winning easily from his stable companion Orthodox Lad.
Make sure you note any runners from trainer Dr Richard Newland who clearly has his horses fit and ready to run at this stage of the season.
The plan is to start writing a regular blog from the 1st November. This season, I'm also going to be writing a blog for the website Gallops Live, mainly to give me exposure to a wider audience.

During the summer I've started writing another occasional blog for the benefit of those who may be operating their own SIPP (Self Invested Pension Plan) Pension Builder by Wayward Lad. I'm not a financial advisor and make no secret of that fact. The reason for writing the blog is the same as the basic reason for writing this horseracing blog - to improve my selection process. If you are interested, take a look and leave a comment. There is a dearth of information for independent pension investors on the internet; most of what I read is "promoted" by others hoping to earn a commission on the back of what they write. My opinion is that the Stock Market and pensions are not something anyone should be intimidated by, it is not a black art, and there is plenty of scope to improve the value of your pension plan with sensible decisions.
