good news bad news

Okay, the good news is that our Gold Club runner wednesday pulled up sore but after the vets reviewed her Thursday, she is okay but jarred up in the race so with a few days rest will be okay. The other good news is that my super fund has three investments, one of whihc is Jumbo International which cost me around $2.60 a share and reported a record profit today and doubled heir number of active accounts during the year. Because they make more money the more jackpots there are the prospects are good and they are paying about 4.4% franked at current price but expect an increased profit next year in the order of 6% franked, just my opinion. The other two majors were WAM capital and WAX I think the other one is, both paying 6% or more fully franked. Funny thing. I never have enough of those sorts of investments. Racing wise the news has been all bad this week and aftre my Spring analysis yesterday I am not expecting a massive result tomorrow but maybe a couple of wins aorund $3 to $4 and one hopeful e/w result on a $30+ shot. We have three Hotshots today and each would NOT be a Hotshot if stuck by the rather rigid riules. One such rule relates to distance changes so becuase the rail is in a different position one runner would not have quailfied being 215 metres different, well 15 metres is nohting. Another rule rlates to beaten distance 7 lengths max, well one runner had problem during the run and eas 7.3 lengths behind. Given ordinary luck it would have been much less than that..get the picture? I will know this arvo if I did the right thing. I think so. Good lcu this weekend. Today is the last day for the Spring promo. If orders come in tonight I will fix them up of course and get you up and running by tomorrow.

RACINGS BAD LUCK STORIES

Our Gold Club runner yesterday finished 4th 1.7 lengths but should have won. It pulled up lame. Today our runner has been scratched from Newcastle, don’t know why yet but he was the $3.50 favourite before the scratching. Our recent retired horse Stromlo, was out for a year but on retrurning didn’t stand up to a preparation and worse still, because of the drought there is no home for him. Usually there are plenty of willing people to have room for a horse  but not if there is a shortage of feed like now. I expect we will have our weekend preview for our Gold and Spring Package subscribers ready by 11 a.m. at the latest , I finished the basic stuff last night but this morning I check for price movements etc. Today we have four meetings , three on a good track and possibly NOrtham too, not a single scratching at Townsville…wow! HR2D select had just 14 selections for 6 winners and $2160 profit for $100 a race. Winform select had 16 selections for two winners and a loss. We have 5 Hotshots today after zero yesterday and we are yet to find our first winner for the week, maybe today is the day? LAST CHANCE TOMORROW TO GET THE SPRING PACKAGE with the $500 bonus deposit and entry into the Quaddie Pool.in

LOST GOULBOURN YESTERDAY BUT POSSIBLY 6 MEETINGS TODAY

It looks like Horsham is transferred toWaraknabeal today and Broome has their feature Sprint so six race meetings on a Tuesday, very rare. Warraknabeal is proably our worst track  while  Broome ain’t that crash hot either, Geelong Synthetic is one of our best, Gosford is a high strike rate but low dividends (small fields) and Lismore and Mackay are right up there. The full list can be viewed under Winform Daily Mail when you log into your subscription. I intend to run the same survey over the same meetings for HR2D and I expect a different result, far different probably. Tomorrow we have a Gold Club runner at Canterbury and I have already had my biggest bet of the year on it at $4.50/$2. It is the early favourite and rightly so as she is a class above most of the others. The defining factor will be luck in the run. On Thursday we have another Gold Club runner, this one at Newcastle and again, success is expected.

NOT THE BEST SATURDAY EVER

We kicked off in the first race with our Best Bet winning @ $3.40. We should have quit then! No drama, not the best day but still plenty of action with some good results. Apache Gold was in our maiden selections and won @ $9.60 but wasn’t a qualifying bet because ot was not favourite but it is amazing how many of these get up. At one stage I was going to drop these as I thought there wasn’t enough interest but then I hear from subscribers who are making a regular profit from backing them all via the Money Factory. It’s snowing at my sons farm in Waratah Tasmania, the first fall of the year actually and it looks so picturesque. It is a very nice property and you can view it on google its 536 Waratah Road Waratah Tasmania. The photos go back through three sets of owners. Great spot if you want to get away from it all yet less than an hour from Burnie on a good road. My son Mat is a brilliant punter and reads the market amazingly well BUT he can’t control his punting. He should never have a bet at all. Luckily he is concentrating and creating timber bowls made from burls which have amazing texture. I know there are an enormous number of peoeple out there who simply can’t control their punting and expecting the next race is sure to be the winning one. They are doomed to failure. You need the discipline of running the Money Factory or Powerplay with our guidelines and it amazes me how people shortcut themselves by not having the required bank or simply not being prepared to pay for professional information, or trying to find a way of winning without getting the best price. I’m still getting people who have never bet anywhere else but on their own TAB’s tote pools. And the Government is responsible for a lot of this because they put up barriers to punters getting a fair price by charging us more and more for each bet we place. They will say it is the bookies they ar getting the money from but that’s not true. The bookies simply incorporate it all into their markets which reduces the dividends we get. That’s this weeks rant!

I HAVEN’T FIGURED OUT THE SCAM

By the way all info is up on our website at 9.04 a.m. Updates or WA around 10.30 first race is 11.30 today. Anyhow about the scam. We received an SMS from Ryan “stable Gossip” Basically Heathcote stable is flying. Doomben Race 5 3 Ruling Dynasty Load UP.  Today I egt Todays Free mail My Guilano Doomben Race 5 6  The table has 5 inthis race and this is the one they like the most will be winning at great each way odds Bevan ( If its going to win why each way?? Just my little query). Ialso got the Ruling Dynasty tip yesterday from Trav. Maybe the key is the mob behind this is laying those runners?? I have been recveiving thes eSMS on and off for weeks now but no approach for money, I guess that’s because none of the tips has won. I susoect that when a good winner gets up that is the time for the “approach”.

TRIAL INFO FROM ROSEHILL

Have a listen to Tommy Berrys interview after the Rosehill trials this week AND checkout our latest video on our home page below. http://media.skyracing.com.au/POD/1/GdBolR.mp3  

ALL INFO UP BY 8.19. ITS A RECORD. FINAL UPDATE 10.45 A.M.

The abandonedment of the Victorian meeting helped and not a lot of selections today but I Expcet the HR2D Specials to have a good day. Belmont was up to a soft 6 by yesterday so possibly into the soft 5 today but we wont know for a while. Todays Daily Feature is only a Maiden but a very open one so some good possibility of a nice result there with the favourite at $4.80 and no surprise when at 5yo the mare has poor barrier trial form and only one career start to date. Our Gold Club runner in a Rosehill barrier trial yesterday had the commentators in raptures and predictions of Black Type when she returns to the races. It was a slow run trial but the way she skipped to a clear lead early and then  responded in the straight when challenged seemingly effortlessly made it a ripper. Winx had a nice trial without being pushed too and finished in third.

THE DENTIST WAS FUN…NOT

Didn’t have much luck yesterday with Hotshots either. I’m sitting in the dark and now have to get over to the electrical place to get some gear, mainly globes and a transformer. Lucky my neighbour knows what to do. Cheers. Sorry about missing the Daily feature yesterday but he did run 3rd. By the way, we always do well at Darwin, including the Cup. Good luck tpo our good friends up there and I can tell you amongst our subscribers we have the owners of a couple of Darwin Cups and former officials there as well so good luck guys. We did get our Best Bet up yesterday and two Winform Premium selections.

BIG COLLECTS YESTERDAY and FEATURE STEEPLE AT SANDOWN TODAY

The two feature races yielded two C Plan  Races plus a $42 Quinella and $180+ Trifecta, easy peezy. Our WFMH winners race also found a $158 Quinella and $1100+ Trifecta in the top five . Four of our Maiden selections won out of 5 the other one placed, On Highstrikers Last Minute Mail our one Special won at $14+.  The HSLM had 8 wisn from the 18 races and a profit of 11% on turnover but only square if all races were dutched. Our HR2D Specials had 8 wins from 13 selections and even the place made a 14% profit. $1680 altogether on a $100 per bet outlay. PLEASE NOTE if you check the Winform Daily Mail you will see I have amended the ratings on todays Sandown Steeple. We think Monarch Chimes is the one to beat.

ANOTHER GOOD HOTSHOT WINNER BELMONT ABANDONED.

Well everybody was on it, it firmed from $3.70 into $3 best tote and won as it liked. Five selections today, we expect nothing from Belmont, and one is repeat from last week which failed badly after a crook start. We’ll see. Not as much profit as the previous month but well within parameters wlthough I have given up on using Powerplay for them as the average dividend is too small, we prefer $5 plus for Powerplay. Money Factory works well but you could eaily lose a Bank so best to split your Bank into three as with the bigger prices at times we can accumulate at least a Bank every little while which still leaves us well in front. Or as I and several others are doing simply use the PSP Plan as in Professional Staking and Money Management which all subscribers have. Peter doubled his initial Bank and is now trading on an increased bet size. All info is online now and John Furgal has sent his SMS and emails out. Be;mont is too wet to race today and look, I know two of our Hotshots are long odds on BUT I have seen this in the morning sometimes and they end up top fluc much better. I am just backing alll of them at Best Of The Best at vicbet.com.
