Tough weekend - nothing really fired to be honest and since 445 yesterday I haven't had much to celebrate! The horse racing tips that are being served up aren't doing much at all - hopefully the weather might start to improve as we head towards February. Amazing how much harder a blog is to write when it hasn't been a great weekend!
Equine Investments had two on Saturday (Major Crispies andnd Rocky Elsom) - both losers. (-£80). Tipster A had a better day and managed to find a winner with Whispering Harry advised at 4/1 - much relief on the day to find a winner (+£120). Northern Monkey Punter continued the winless streak - Canyari and Shamahan both failed to get up - thankfully with reduced stakes the damage was limited (-£50). Lastly Form Judge stuck up Corrinwood in one of the big races at Haydock - it went off favourite but failed to show why! (-£20)
Daily Horse Racing P/L = -£70
The usual Saturday nonsense - £4,163 staked in total across TFA, Football Investor and Football Elite - so you always feel it is going to be impending doom! I actually was out for the day and only remembered I had maximum bets on Crewe and Partick - wasn't pleased when I saw they both lost - so thought I was in for a hell of a day. In actual fact come 445pm yesterday I was only a few quid down - unfortunately Football Investors Top Flight Euro bets failed to bail me out at night - and a hefty loss was felt!
Football Investor first - 3 wins from 13 (-£528). Worth pointing out I failed to meet the required odds threshold for the Partick Thisle game - I had a bet on Betfair but it went unmatched - it must have been close come kick off as I also had an order in for TFA that did get matched and it was only two clicks below. If this was included it would have been a brighter day for Football Investor - I need to remain disciplined and continue with the rules I have set out.
TFA had a better day and managed a nice profit - the main winners for me were Oldham (+£401), Northampoton (+£192) and Telford who were backed at a nice 6.5 with Bet 365. Again - it could have been even better - this time Exeter failed to make the odds, was a 6pointer for me - so a massive swing. I need to hope this evens out over the season - it was two late goals that helped Exeter and St Mirren - another day I would hope to be sitting here saying the value play is a great idea! (+£219)
Football Elite had a poor day - 5 bets 5 losers (-£251)
Daily Football P/L = -£560
Overall Daily P/L = -£630
Busier than expected day with some decent racing across the water and also a AW card at Kempton. Equine had two in the Leopardstown feature race - both long odds and failed to win (-£50)
Northern Monkey Punter added another 3 losers to the winless streak - Evident, Shotgun Start and Aldeburgh not doing enough - the latter was close but no cigar! (-£100).
Formjudge had a busy day (great to see!) - 2 were advised last night and both finished 2nd (Byerley Babe and Tsarglas) - the other Mountain Range was a winner at 9/2! (+£100) I am slightly concerned about the night before betting - on Tsarglas I was matched at 2/1 - it went off at 5/6 favourite (even though it lost!) - not sure if this was due to R4s or not - but I will be losing my last remaining B365 account if it continues!
Daily Horse Racing P/L = -£100
Total wipeout on the football from Football Investor and Football Elite, as mentioned it was overdue - things were going too well! Football Investor had 2 - Cagliari and Man City - both lost (-£202)
Football Elite had a total wipeout weekend with Genoa, Chievo and Deportivo all losing (-£150). Hopefully better to come from them both next weekend!
Daily Football P/L = -£353
Still sitting here unsure at how this happened - Nicks Picks put up Kaymer to win the Abu Dhabi Championship - when I checked this morning he was 10 shots clear at one point....that feels like a 4 goal lead. Then he lost the championship by 2 - Kaymer owes me nothing but he would have been top of my list to see out a tournament - totally beweildered! Nick also managed to get a return with outsider Byeong-hun An finishing inside the top 20 - a great bet! (+£67)
Jason kelly had another week with no return - Kruger and Cabrera Bello were never in it, Kruger at least made the cut...(-£60)

Still some golf to run tonight but a return isn't looking lightly unless Justin Thomas can pull something off for Golf Punters Guide - so I expect I will be reporting a big overall loss tomorrow!

Tough week due to a tough weekend - hopefully can pick up some profit from the horses in the coming week!
Bet of the Week :- The Football Analyst (17/01/14) - Telford to beat Wrexham @6.5Was between two this week, the one above and the Byeong-Hun Top 20 winner from Nicks Picks - have gone with telford due to the odds and the manner they went about winning. A 4-0 win away from home when you are bottom of the league - top stuff from TFA to pick that one out the abyss!
