The Bookies Enemy Review
Betting Gods have a host of Horse Racing tipsters but The Bookies Enemy certainly stands out on its track record alone. Delivering over £4000 in profit in just 2 years had quickly caught my eye.
The current ROI at the time of writing is a whopping 22.69% based upon £10 stakes.
Selections are sent Monday to Sunday from 7 pm to 8 pm UK time. You’ll also get a notification whenever there are no selections for that day’s racing. The selections can be accessed via the Betting Gods app on Android or on IOS as well as via email or logging into the betting gods’ control panel with your chosen login details.
There are around 50-60 selections sent out each month so it’s not too many to be able to keep track of and the starting bank advised is just 100 points.
In March 2019 alone The Bookies Enemy delivered a whopping 90 points (£900 to £10 stakes on each selection) of profit.
Certainly, a profitable tipster that has proven himself over nearly 2 years now and still remains in profit.
I have not added this tipster to the best horse racing tipsters that I have come across so far based on the live trial I ran.
This is due to its consistency over the last few years and I have the utmost confidence that this service will continue to deliver the goods long term but not in the short term.
My Results When I Joined Bookies Enemy
Below are each days selection with the write up and staking advice while I was a member with the bookies enemy.
15:00 York, San Donato = LOST £10
1pt win @ 5.00 Bet365, SkyBet, WilliamHill, SportPesa, BetVictor, Boylesports, Unibet
Ran a big race on his return and although he possibly took a step backwards last time at Goodwood, he was a bit keen and raced without cover in what was a very strong renewal of the Sussex stakes. He’s in calmer waters tomorrow dropping back to 7f and with those two runs under his belt he should be primed to run a big race at a track that should suit his keen going style of racing.
15:15 Sandown, Cemhaan = LOST £10
1pt win @ 8.00 Bet365, SkyBet, WilliamHill, SportPesa, BetVictor, Boylesports, Unibet
Won with plenty to spare when last seen last year at Kempton then when returning to action in June he managed to finish 4th despite having a wide passage throughout, as well as racing about 5-6 horse-widths wide on the final bend. He was hampered again towards the end as the winner sailed by, so all-in-all the result needs marking up quite substantially and although he’ll be racing on the turf for the first time tomorrow, he’s from a top yard and there’s every likelihood that he could still be very well handicapped off an unchanged mark of 83. He’s got a handy draw in stall 6 and he looks worth a bet.
16:10 York, Acklam Express = WON £70
2pt win @ 4.50 Bet365, SkyBet, William Hill, BetVictor, Boylesports, Gentingbet
Looks to have plenty to find on paper against a few higher rated rivals, but the manner in which he won his handicap at Goodwood last time was one of a potentially very useful sprinter. He recorded a very good time for a two year old race when winning that day which was in fact the quickest like for like time of the whole meeting, including the group 3 Molecombe Stakes on the preceding day which had re-opposing rival ‘Ben Madcui’ in 2nd place. A different track and a different day tomorrow which, for a 2yo is my only worry, but he won that last race at Goodwood so impressively plus he did it the hard way having a wide passage throughout, but still managed to come through and finish strongly. He’s drawn low, close to his biggest danger, and if he can run to a similar level to last time, then he should be hard to beat.

1pt each-way @ 15.00 BetVictor, Betfair Sportsbook, Paddy Power
(3 places @ 1/4)
Never shown much on his first two starts but he showed enough last time at Beverley to suggest he’s got the ability to win a race despite finishing well down the field in what’s turning out to be a useful action maiden. A bit slowly away, he looked to have more left in the tank when meeting trouble inside the final furlong and was eased right down. He’ll need to be quicker from the gate at this sharper track, but he showed bright speed at Catterick the time before and off an opening mark of just 50 he could find himself well treated for his handicap debut.

A poor-quality race of horses at the basement level but TMR is still unexposed after just 4 races and she showed her best piece of form last time at Musselburgh showing bright speed in a strongly run race over 7f and only weakening late on. She’s dropping down to 5.5f tomorrow in an equally poor-quality race and if she can repeat that last run or somethings similar over this shorter trip, then it should put her right in the mix.

Ran well in a competitive handicap at Cheltenham in January behind a couple of horses who both won at the big festival in March and then after having had excuses on his next two starts (ground too soft then fell at the first) he performed with credit in a decent looking grade two event in Auteuil on ground that was probably a bit too soft. He’s back in a handicap on good ground tomorrow and although there’s plenty of rain forecast from tomorrow morning, I don’t think it will be enough to hinder his chances (Cheltenham effort was on soft) and down in grade on just his second start since March, I think he’ll go well.
13:55 Catterick, Theatro = LOST £10
1pt win @ 4.50 SkyBet, William Hill, SportPesa, 888Sport, Betfred, 10Bet, SportNation
Has been holding his form well this year and despite finishing well beat last time, he was racing on quick ground which isn’t ideal plus he possible did a bit too much in the early part to force a contested lead racing over2 miles for the first time. He’s a much better horse on soft ground as shown when running well at both Haydock and Pontefract and with conditions already soft and potentially worsening before race-time, he should have plenty in his favour tomorrow in what looks a slightly easier race.

Had just the 5 starts for Iain Jardine but after 3 poor runs on the all-weather, he looks to be finding his form on the turf with two solid efforts since returning from a break. They were both on good ground but one of his best runs, when trained in Ireland, was in a decent Listowel maiden where he went off a well-backed 7/2 jf and finished 3rd and with tomorrow being the first time he’s raced on such ground since, he could find himself very well handicapped under such conditions. A widish draw isn’t ideal at Musselburgh, but if the forecast rain ensues, then there could be a few defectors that will narrow the field and potentially giving him a much kinder draw.
15:30 Musselburgh, Mutabaahy =LOST £20

Doesn’t win as many as he should but he’s been right on top of his game this year especially when racing over the minimum 5f trip and he ran his best race last time in a competitive race at Chester when tackling the softest ground he’s raced on for over a year. Tomorrow’s race looks much easier in comparison and looks like it could be run at a good pace if there’s not too many taken out due to the ground and although he ran a poor race the last time he was seen her on his only start, he had excuses that day and the run can be scratched. He’ll to be alert from the gate over this quick 5f, but if his jockey can get him into a good posi from the gate, then I think he should go well.

Has been well beat in each of her three races to gain a handicap mark but after clearly needing her first run after a break, she was so much better than the final result on each of her next two outings. In fact, her jockey Liam Kiniry did everything possible to make sure that she finished well down the field and used every trick in the bookie over-restraining her after breaking well/ running her into trouble deliberately out the back of the field. In fact, he might as well had ‘I’m not here to win’ tattooed across his head! He did well to escape the stewards’ eye but he certainly didn’t escape mine and off an opening mark of just 58, she looks a huge price.

12:40 Chelmsford, Shababiya =LOST £10
1pt win @ 5.50 Bet365, SkyBet, William Hill, SportPesa, BetVictor, Boylesports, Betfred, 10Bet
Green during the first half of her debut, she looked to be ‘learning on the job’ in a decent looking Haydock novice auction where, after getting crowded on the rail, she looked to have more left to give at the end. She’ll be racing on the all-weather for the first time tomorrow, but she’s a half-sister to ‘Emirates Empire’ who was twice a winner on the sand and once at this track ( same owner). She has a Roger Varian filly to contend with who has an excellent 14% s/r with his all-weather debutants, but Ralph Beckett who trains Shababiya has an even better s/r with his 2nd time out all-weather runners, which jumps from 11% first run to 23% on their 2nd runs so many of his 2yo’s improve greatly for a run. There are a few other unraced filles that could also go well on their debuts, but Shababiya looked to have plenty of untapped potential at Haydock, and if she can put that experience to good use then I think she should play a big hand in tomorrow’s race.
16:35 Beverley, G For Gabrial = LOST £10
1pt win @ 11.00 Bet365, SkyBet, SportPesa, Boylesports, Betfred
One of the more experienced 3yo’s in the field but he’s also got some of the best form in the book despite only having one win to his name which was here at this track when bolting up over 7.5f last year. He’s been out of sorts this year but he showed a glimmer of promise in a decent Chester handicap last time where he looked to get unbalanced before staying on again in the home straight. He drops markedly in grade tomorrow into a field with plenty of dead-wood, and if tomorrow’s conditions don’t prove too testing back at Beverley, then I think he should go well.

|15:00 Goodwood, Donald Llewellyn = LOST £10|
1pt win @ 13.00 Bet365, SkyBet, BetVictor
‘Noonday Gun’ was impressive when winning last time, but that was on soft ground which many of his rivals may have struggled on and with him carrying so much weight over this longer trip and on different ground tomorrow, I think he’s worth opposing.
DL has shaped with promise on his last two starts staying on slowly after getting outpaced, and both races have contained a good few useful types from top yards. His breeding doesn’t shout out that he’s a stayer in the making, but he’s a big strong strapping horse and off an opening mark of just 55, receiving over a stone and a half off the fav, I think he looks worth a bet on his first try at 2 miles.
18:30 Newmarket, Corazonada = LOST £30
3pt win @ 7.00 SkyBet, William Hill, BetVictor, 888Sport
Had just the two runs to get her mark of 70 with the first when running well in what’s turning out to be a very strong fillies novice race just over a year ago at this track over a mile. She finished a well beat 5th that day but she was keeping on at the end of a mile plus it was a field chock-full of useful fillies, 5 of which have franked the form and 3 at a much higher level, the best of which was the 4th home who ran well in the Ribblesdale at Royal Ascot and then in The Oaks, and also the winner who finished behind her in the Epsom Oaks.
She then followed that up with a big run at a big price at Newbury where her jockey De Sousa tried to lead home a quality field containing a handful of useful colts, and he nearly pulled it off but was found wanting for stamina inside the final furlong of a mile and a half trip, while getting hampered late on.
She’s been handed an opening mark of just 70 for those two runs which to me looks very generous, and with her apprentice jockey taking off a handy 5lb (had a winner for trainer Ismail Mohammad on Saturday) in this fillies only race, if she can run to anything like the level of her first two races, she should take some beating over this 2f shorter trip.

Has run quite well on both her starts to date, finishing a staying on third at Bath over a mile on quick ground, and then finishing 5th in a decent looking novice race at Kempton where she looked to get outpaced over 7f. She’ll be racing on totally different ground tomorrow, but David Simcock her trainer has taken her out of a race already due to quick ground and he indicated that it was too quick on her debut run at Bath but had no choice but to ‘run her due to lack of options’, despite finishing 3rd when questioned by the stewards. Her sire’s progeny have a good record on testing ground plus she’s closely related to several soft/heavy ground winners and with Jamie Spencer booked to ride on her handicap debut, I think she could be very well in off an opening mark of just 66.
17:10 Yarmouth, Inevitable Outcome = LOST £10
1pt win @ 5.00 Bet365, BetVictor, 888Sport, Paddy Power, 10Bet, SportNation
Another Simcock/Spencer runner which are their only two on the card tomorrow and this is another filly that might have conditions in her favour tomorrow. She looked highly progressive when winning two Kempton handicaps in February and then she ran well on her return at Newcastle at the start of the month which should have her primed for tomorrow. She needs to be able to translate that from to the turf and she looks the riskier of the two regarding the soft ground as there’s not much to go on re her breeding. But she ran well enough in her two turf starts last year and David Simcock wouldn’t be running her tomorrow if he though she wouldn’t be able to do herself justice so I think she looks worth risking.
Simcock/Spencer have a 20% s/r when teaming up and that figure jumps to 28% if you just include this year’s runners (5 from 18) so think it’s worth putting these two in a double with them being the pairs only two at the meeting.

1pt win @ 10.00 Bet365, SkyBet, William Hill, BetVictor, Boylesports
Looks to have improved with the addition of the cheek-pieces and had he not broke slowly last time; he’d surely have gone close in what was a competitive handicap at Beverley. Different ground tomorrow but he’s won on it before and with that win being the last time SDS rode him, with De Sousa back on board tomorrow it makes the bet all-the-more appealing.
15:45 Kempton, Zhui Feng =LOST
1pt win @ 6.50 Bet365, SkyBet, William Hill, SportPesa, BetVictor, Boylesports
Extremely well handicapped on some of his old form, he bounced right back to form in a hot Goodwood handicap last time to finish 4th behind a subsequent winner and our selection ‘Toro Strike’ who’s since finished second in a Group 3. He’s still unexposed on the all-weather with just 4 starts to his name and he’s already shown that he’s well up to winning something like tomorrow’s type of race, and is in fact unbeaten at this track with his solitary run being a win, beating the mighty sprint filly ‘Marsha’ no less as a 2yo. He’s probably seen his best days now but if he can continue the form of that Goodwood effort then he’ll have a great chance in tomorrow’s race.

(3 places @ 1/5)
Has had just the one start and although finishing a well beat 8th, he broke slowly and wasn’t given anything like a hard time thereafter behind a couple of tare away leaders who both could end up very useful. But he looked to have more left to give under a canny ride and although it’s anyone’s guess as to whether he’ll be there to win tomorrow (or be aimed at handicaps later down the line) Oisin Murphy was booked to ride on his debut run so it’s possible that a big run was expected, plus Stevie Donohue who’s booked to ride tomorrow has a good 21% s/r when riding for Ed Vaughan.
He’s up in trip tomorrow and although there’s a couple of sexy types from top yards that might need to run below par, he’s a massive price so I think he looks worth a bet in a race that certainly doesn’t look any better than his last.

Has had three starts to get her mark and despite clearly being nothing special, she’s shown enough to suggest she can win a race now she’s going handicapping. She ran well for a long way on the front end at Chepstow despite racing keenly, and then last time at the same track on a completely different ground, she never got a clear run out the back and only seen daylight when the race was won, staying on past beaten rivals after having to be switched wide.
Both those races were against the colts and there was a few fancy types amongst them, but tomorrow she gets to race against fillies only on her handicap bow.
She’ll need to settle back over a mile tomorrow but she’s a huge price so I’m happy to take a risk.

Has been running well at Ayr this year and he did so again last time from a wide draw over 7f. But he goes best at Newcastle having won 5 times here and off the same mark as his last win which was in a very good time for the grade, he looks nailed on for a place at the very least in a race that could be there for the taking from the front.
3:10 Salisbury, Happy Romance = WON @11/4
1pt win @ SP (price crashed might drift tomorrow)
Has shown a fair level of form in each of her races and after running well in the Group 2 Queen Mary at Royal Ascot, she’s upped her game in both her races since, winning easily at Newbury and again last time when stepped up to 6f for the first time, beating the well-backed 107 rated fav into second. She might have a tricky draw tomorrow but she’s progressing at a rate of knots and if her jockey can get her a good position from the gate then she must go well again.

If HR does encounter trouble from her wide draw then it might make sense to have a saver on PM who, despite not yet having a mark after just one run, could be very useful as not only did she win emphatically at Chepstow on her racecourse debut, she did it in a very good time and was never stronger than at the finish over 5f on soft ground. She should cope with the step up in trip tomorrow and if she can get an uncontested lead on the rail, then she might be hard to peg back for a trainer who had a filly run well at a nice price in this race last year.

Has been in great from since joining the James Bethell yard with just the one blot on her formbook which was when asked to run over an extended mile and 2f at York.
But she ran her best race last time when dropped to 7f despite still racing a little keenly in the early part of the race which was a good quality fillies handicap, finishing 2nd and only passed by one other rival who’s clearly well handicapped.
She beat a couple of tomorrow’s rivals in that race and with what should be a race run at a good pace, she looks to have ideal conditions to beat those two again and hopefully the rest of the field also.
2:55 Thirsk, Galah = WON @3.5/1
1pt win @ 4.50 Bet365, BetVictor, 888Sport
Had just the three runs so far, being well backed on her debut when facing a few useful fillies, doing quite well for a good way before the smart winner pulled right away and she wasn’t given a hard time thereafter. She then bettered that with a good run at Beverley, trying to make all and setting decent time figures in the process to go down by half a length.
She looked to disappoint last time, but I don’t think the way she was ridden helped her cause, being given a solo passage out wide when the main action was happening closer to the rail, in a race that again contained a few potentially well above average fillies.
She’s been dropped 4lb for that run which looks lenient and in what looks a pretty poor nursery handicap, if she can run to a similar level or better, that any of her three runs so far, it should give her a great chance of winning this tomorrow in what only looks to have a couple of real dangers with ‘Diamon Haze’ being the likeliest fav after running well behind a smart winner last time.
But she’s not proven on tomorrow’s ground plus she’s gone up 4lb for that Beverley 2nd, and with her not beating much in behind, it makes the form of that run a little sketchy for me, despite her finishing a long way clear of the third.
Danny Tudhope gets the ride and at the prices, I think this less exposed daughter of Australia is the one to be on.
3:30 Thirsk, Archaeology = LOST

Ran well on his return from a break after being quite well backed on course in a race that was run at a good clip producing good speed figures in very testing conditions, and had he got out a little quicker when stuck behind rivals he might’ve won. He’s gone up 3lb for that run and there’s always the worry of him bouncing on his second start after a break, but if he should be suited by this bigger field and if he can run to a similar level on better ground, the he won’t be far away.

(3 places @ 1/5)
‘Khaloosy’ who was very impressive when winning at Ascot but below par on quick ground last time, could be the one to be on tomorrow if there were more pace to that race.
But that’s not guaranteed so with him racing so keenly last time I’m willing to pass him over for Graignes who’s a much bigger price and who should also be suited by tomorrow’s soft ground.
He’s a French import who was competing in some of the top 3yo group 1’s over there last year, he’s had just the three starts for George Baker and although he was poor on his first outing, he then had a wind op and he looks to be returning to something like the best of his French juvenile form where he finished a staying on 5th behind the smart Haggas trained ‘One Master’ in the Prix De La Foret last October.
His run in the Lennox Stakes at Goodwood can be marked up considerably as he just never got a run having got behind a wall of horses and repeatedly hampered.
Then last time on the sand at Deaville, he again had to wait for a run before flying home to finish 4th.
He’ll need to settle better tomorrow over this longer trip, but I reckon he’s been aimed at this race for some time, and with Adam Kirby booked to ride again, I think he looks way overpriced returning to the easy ground that served him so well in France, despite not winning since his debut maiden race.

The most experienced 2yo in the race, but a few of the lesser exposed rivals have something to prove on what they’ve shown so far so it might pay to go with one who’s already run well at a fair level and who might be suited by tomorrow’s conditions. His latest three races all look decent quality behind the likes of improving ‘Acklam Express’ and ‘Happy Romance (both our selections of course!) and then last time over in Ireland he again performed with credit from a wide draw behind a few potentially useful types to finish a never nearer 5th. He’ll be making his polytrack debut tomorrow but he’s got form on the tapeta when running well in 2nd behind a horse who went on to run quite well in the Coventry at Royal Ascot and if he can put that experience to good use then he should outrun his price.
He’s got the plum draw in stall 1 and if he gets an easy lead or just sat in behind, he should go well.

Ran his best race yet when upped to this trip last time in what looked a decent Newbury maiden containing a few rivals that some previous strong form to the race. Four of his rivals pulled away that day but he was seen to be staying on again towards the end under a fairly easy ride, in fact, his jockey never used the whip at all. He’ll need to improve on that bare form to take a hand in tomorrow’s race as it’s of a good quality, but he gets in off a very lightweight tomorrow receiving a full stone and 5lb off the horse at the top of the weights which is almost the same weight he was carrying last time behind some potentially useful rivals, plus he’s almost a stone better off with ‘Coconut’ the winner of that last race. He’s a full brother to a mile and a half winner and if he is given a more prominent ride tomorrow in a race that doesn’t look likely to be run at any great pace and on better ground, then he should be able to make good use of such a lightweight and go well.

Has improved with each race and his 4th when returning from a break last time reads well behind a few very useful types including the 2nd horse who’s rated 96, the winner, who’s since won again at listed level, and the 3rd horse who only finished a diminishing 3/4 of a length ahead of him and has subsequently run well in a hot Kempton handicap off a mark of 87. He’s been given a mark of just 66 since that last run and if he can build on it then he should be competitive at this level. He’s got a wide draw which isn’t ideal, but if David Probert can get him out quickly from the gate to sit handy, then he should go well on his handicap debut.

Has had just the three runs this year and after a respectable return at Leicester he had excuses for finishing down the field the next twice as he was drawn wide both times, plus that was the third time in a row that he’s run poorly at Newcastle.
He’s had a break since the Newcastle run so he should be fresh and ready to roll and with tomorrow’s ground conditions being a big plus, he could easily bounce back to form just like he did last August when encountering similar conditions.
Ruth Carr his trainer has had quite a poor year so far, but she’s had a couple of winners of late and with her going through such a lean spell, it at least means that she’s got a whole possie of well handicapped horses to run.
CB is 8 years old now but if he can run to a similar level as his last win at this track beating a field of 15 runners in a good time, then despite tomorrow’s race being better, he should still be competitive against a field who some of which, might not act in the conditions.

Never really progressed after a couple of good runs for old trainer Nigel Tinkler, but he’s now well handicapped as a result for new trainer David Brown. One of those good runs was at this track as a 3yo and now he’s returning here to race off a 17lb lower mark, he has to be worth interest for a trainer who does quite well with his new recruits from other yards. He’ll be wearing the blinkers for the first time and if there was ever a time to back him it has to be tomorrow back at the venue of one of his best runs.

Ran well for us last time despite being weak in the market. He’s better over tomorrow’s trip of a mile and with Hollie Doyle booked for the first time he should go well.

Has caught the eye in each of his 4 races to date, showing greenness but running well at two, then clearly not there to win on his third start when returning from a break despite Hollie Doyle being booked to ride as he was instantly restrained from his good draw before racing keenly and in the end, he had no chance from the rear.
He was given a much more positive ride under Kirby on his handicap debut and ran well in a well-run race to finish 3rd.
He’s up to a mile tomorrow with Tom Marquand in the saddle, so there could be plenty more to come from this horse.

Looked to be coming back to form when running well over 6f at York and although finishing well down the field on his next run in The Stewards Cup, he ran very well for a long way, helping to set strong fractions before weakening and being eased right down.
He’s now very well handicapped and dropping in grade, and with this shorter 5f trip likely to suit him better, he could run a big race on the front end.

1:00 Haydock, Elham Valley =LOST
1pt win @ 8.00 Bet365, SkyBet, William Hill, Boylesports, Unibet
Won a seller in fine style last time and was then bought cheaply and transferred to the John Gallagher yard, and although that was ‘just’ a seller that he won, he did easily, and it might be that he just relished the soft ground, which he’s not seen since showing a liking for it twice. He beat another soft ground lover by 17 lengths last time in a decent time which compared well to the class 3 and 2 handicaps later on the card, and although he’ll no doubt find tomorrow’s company tougher, if he proves his liking for the soft ground again, he should be competitive at the very least at this level, despite his top weight.

Ran well on her return from a short break in what looked a useful fillies’ handicap at Newmarket last time, a race run at a solid pace producing a good overall time figure. The third home has franked the form by bolting up over a mile next time (though on soft ground) and if she can produce something similar over this slightly shorter trip tomorrow, then she looks a banker for a place at the very least.
4:40 Haydock, Evening Spirit =LOST
1pt win @ 8.00 BetVictor, Betfair Sportsbook, Paddy Power
Unlucky not to finish closer on her return run after a tardy start and not getting a clear run and it was a similar scenario last time in a well-run race producing the best overall time figure of the meeting, staying on nicely suggesting a step up to a mile will suit. She gets that tomorrow and with more testing conditions, this daughter of Invincible Spirit should go well.

2:00 Sandown, Conquering Eagle = LOST

Caught the eye on his racecourse debut in a good maiden here in August, staying on well under a very considerate ride behind tomorrow’s hot fav ‘Maximal’. He might not have the flashy breeding of him and a couple of others in the race, but he certainly wouldn’t have finished so far behind Maximal with firmer handling.
He should improve on that last run and with the assistance of 5lb claimer William Carver, I think at the current prices he looks the value pick.
2:40 Doncaster, Mohawk King =LOST
1pt e/w @ 12.00 Bet365, William Hill, Betfair Sportsbook, Paddy Power
(3 places @ 1/5)
The Willie Haggas trainer ‘Sacred’ has been all the rage today and well backed ant-post for this race but considering the fillies have won this race just once in the last 23 running’s and from 27 attempts since 1997, I just can’t have her at odds of 2/1.
Mohawk Ridge is from yard who’s won this race 5 times (Hannon Jnr twice) and ridden by a jockey (Frankie) who’s won the race 6 times and after doing well too in his maiden after a sluggish start (had Minzaal behind), he then ran well for a long way on the front last time, setting strong fractions before tiring late to see them improving and potential high class ‘Minzaal’ go on to win. He had the whole field ofF the bridal bar the winner from just over halfway that day so it was no surprise to see him passed by a few rivals just after the 1f pole.
He drops to 5f tomorrow and looks to have plenty in his favour.
4:00 Chester, Shawaamekh = LOST

Has run well the last twice despite having a wide draw including here on his penultimate start when finishing 3rd behind the rapidly improving ‘Ravitch’ who’s subsequently gone in again. He’s got a much better draw tomorrow and should go well in what might be a slightly lesser race quality-wise.
Running Profit/Loss Total = -£357.50
CANCELLED my membership at this point far too expensive to follow and I honestly think I could pick better with my eyes closed, so many losers is almost harder to do than try to pick a winner.
The total loss in three weeks of £357.50 is terrible. I wouldn’t risk this service in its current dismal form at all.
