Rollercoaster of a week!

Things have been hectic with the day job - then a nice family holiday to round off the week. Thankfully I am managing to get any bets on - my cut down portfolio this year is making things a lot easier (that and the weather making horse racing very non appealing to tipsters!). It has been a pretty break even week so far - but I am hoping the golf goes in my favour tonight. A Ryan Palmer win with a Justin Thomas top 10 would be fine and would put me in a great position as I approach the final few days of the month. Quick summary on the days past and will follow up with a fuller weekly review following the golf tomorrow.

Horse Racing

3 bets - 3 losers for the Horse. NMP had Lexington Rose and Sherriff of Newton - both finished behind others. The Analyst had Somchine which also failed to do the business.

Daily Horse Racing P/L = -£103


The weekend of golf betting was compounded by a miserable end to the Sony Open. Jason Kellys picks Johnson and Streb were never really in it. Golf Punters Guide was unlucky with big outsider Justin Thomas finishing one place out the place money. Nick had a slightly better time as Sabbatini came from way back to secure the Top 10 bet. Really nice to see different markets getting used. He has 3 argubaly in contention for the Top 10 again this weekend. All in all a disaster - but Golf betting is like that and one big winner changes to complexion of everything.

Daily Golf P/L =  -£329

Overall Daily P/L = -£431 - Rough start to the week!

TuesdayHorse Racing

Only one bet on a an extremely quiet Tuesday - thankfully a nice winner at odds of 6.5 for Equine - With Hindsight aptly named to do the business.

Daily Horse Racing P/L = +£220


One outside pick and Notts County picked up an admirable draw - sadly I was on the win at 5.25 - so the bet goes down as a loser!

Daily Football P/L =  -£80

Overall Daily P/L = £140

WednesdayHorse Racing

A busy day compared to yesterday. Equine had 1 selection in the 335 Lingfield - Pearl Ransom narrowly missing out at odds of 6.5 (-£45). Tipster A had 2 bets (Stopped out Carlisle 240) and Lukes Benefit (Ascot 250) - again both were sadly losers (-£70). Northern Monkey Punter then reminded me of just how good he is as he hit a winner with Francos Secret in the 335@Lingfield. Evening Attire was a loser in his other selection. (+£50). The real plaudits for the day go to The Analyst - 3 selections and 2 winners, Mr Bossy Boots scored at 2.5 and Cango scored at 4.5, Millionaires Row was a loser - great turnover from him (+£160). Form Judge had 1/2 with Anglophile scoring very very easily in the 300@Ling but Blue Aegan lost later at Kempton (+£40)

Daily Horse Racing P/L = +£135


Sticking to the value helped me here as I couldn't get near the Ipswich odds - they went on to lose comfortably. I was only on the draw - so finished £40 down instead of £160....

Daily Football P/L =  -£40


Nics Picks through up one FRL selection with Richard Green in Qatar - failed to do much on Day 1 so a small loser.

Daily Golf P/L =  -£5

Overall Daily P/L = £90

ThursdayHorse Racing

Equine came up a loser with Ontaris Joy in the 510@Chelmsford (-£40), Tipster A nailed a nice winner with the Tourade Man in the 250@Warwick (+£180). Sadly Northern Monkey Punter couldnt follow up yesterdays winner and lost with Diamond Lady at Chelmsford (-£38). The Analyst continued his good run as he picked up a winner with Keep Kicking in the 740@Chelmsford. My first winner at the Track! He had two losers with Alright Benny and Shinooki - but profit on the day! (+£40). Lastly Formjudge had a bet in Ireland with Jadlani failing to do much at big odds in the 315@Gowran Park (-£30)

Interestingly Northern Monkey Punter has his mojo back and is increasing stakes again - will be interesting to see how it pans out!
Daily Horse Racing P/L = +£113

FridayHorse Racing

A quiet Friday overall - Equine had one loser with Navajo Dream at nice odds at Wolves - finished 2nd (just!) (-£40). Northern Monkey Punter had two in the 310@Ling - neither were in it (-£75). It was up to the Analyst to save the day again with Present LOdger winning at odds of 3.75 (+£110)

Daily Horse Racing P/L -£5


One football bet - one winner. Can it always be this simple - Football Elite put up Nice to beat Marseille - nice odds for me (3.64) and it duly won!

The dreaded Saturday to come....

Daily Football P/L =  +£132

Overall Daily P/L = £127

SaturdayHorse Racing

First up Equine - 2 selections, 1 winner. Persepolis lost out but Ivors Rebel won the 345@Lingfield for a nice return on the day (+£95). Tipster A put up Renard in the Skybet Chase - I am a bit miffed as it finished 4th but with William Hill I was only on the first 3 places. Must read the small print....He also had Special Wells in the first at Doncaster that failed to feature (-£100) Norther Monkey had a busier day and only managed 1 winner from 4. Gabrials Wawa winning at 3.75 - the other selections Gwoen, Silverheels and Kodiac Lady were beaten home. (-£19). Formjudge had one selection he was very keen on - unfortunately the owners went and Easter Day was chosen to run at Cheltenham instead! It actually fell at Cheltenham. A loser for me. (-£20)

Daily Horse Racing P/L -£24


Football was quieter than normal thanks to the FA cup and what a day it was in the FA Cup. Match of the Day was fascinating viewing this morning! Football Investor had a losing day - Lazio won but Port Vale, Lille and Vallecano all lost (-£206). The Football Analyst continued his great start to the year. Big winners were Crewe (4.33) and Inverness (2.6) - because of my value threshold I didn't have the full stake matched on Thistle - disappointed they didn't win after taking a lead after 3 mins. I hate to think how much money Thistle have cost me in recent years. (+£357). Football Elite only had one bet on Saturday - Bastia which lost (-£51)

Daily Football P/L =  +£101


Sadly Nics Pics couldn't follow up their great week last week at qatar - Broberg and Green failing to make the Top 10. Jason Kelly also had a loser with Andrew Johnston after an encouraging start. I actually missed his other bet Anthony Wall as I didnt realise the tournament started on Wednesday - thankfully it wasnt an expensive error!

Daily Golf P/L =  -£35

Overall Daily P/L = £23

Yearly Staked = £20,410

Yearly P/L excluding subs = £3,495
Yearly ROI% excluding subs = 17%

After a poor start to the week it has ended well. Already today Evian have won for both Football Elite and Football Investor so I am hoping it can be a profitable day for the football betting. In the golf a Ryan Palmer win would net me about a grand - so I am hoping he can repeat his -11 round for the other day - ridiculously he was out in 27! Nics Pics also has Justin Thomas - albeit at smaller stakes as I find my feet with the service, Fingers crossed I don't wake up to a disappointing leader board.
