Actually thats not a bad name for a horse, (Shakespeare Way) or maybe a street name. Today’s post as the blog title suggests is a sonnet, like all my posts its pure racing poetry. As we are heading into the weekend my mood lightens from deep in work/race mode to a more light hearted, thought provoking mindset.
I asked myself is it really possible to give people one bet, one selection per day. Recently i had a comment on the blog asking for my selections…!
” Nice try “, but not something im prepared to hand over, my selections are my business, and in racing we all tend to be a little tight lipped when it comes to listing our daily selections. I mean i do already provide my software for my members to use and i do have a few systems which i have released to a select few, for me its a much easier way to manage. Handing out selections in this way allows me to provide rules based on the selections giving, it just makes everything less complexed for all concerned.
Also if im dealing with racing for the day (a free day) i quite often make changes to certain bet types and many other things which would be all to complicated for the average punter to get his head around, no offence. For most betting pro’s its a bit like having a little black book and leaving it lying around not really minding that your mates take a quick peek while you stick the kettle on…, only to find them making phone calls.
I decided no one can truly give you the correct bet for the day. All they can do is guide and offer the best advice and knowledge.
Even with the best will in the world the best horse racing tools at your disposal the best in form Jockey riding and with a Trainer and yard in good form, in the end the decision to bet or not to bet (very Shakespeare like) starts and ends with you, the decision to bet does not end with me or Joe from the local bookies.
We have all lost money betting, lost races by a nose, won races we shouldn’t have, lost a few more while at the bar, it all forms part of racing poetry. I do try to hammer home the consistency and by that i don’t mean losing.
” To master any discipline, takes discipline”
If you never learn from your betting decisions wether they are good or bad decisions then you won’t learn from your mistakes, which means you lose the ability to spot solid opportunities when they arise and believe me they arrive most days. If you keep following tipsters who make their living by calling you or other punters on the phone asking you to put a few quid on for them as well, then you will never break the cycle.
So throughout racing we have plenty free tips, paid tips, ratings, software, betting bots, emailed selections, you name it racing is everywhere. No matter what you use, paid or free, that still doesn’t mean you have to totally agree with the information you are seeing, especially if its from a tipster who is sending you daily text messages.
You will find lots of punters who go against such tipsters or ratings, they prefer to have someone pull up a number of selections for potential daily bets and from there they simply dissect the information and decide whether they agree before placing any bets.
The point is, its entirely up to you.
No one can force you to place bets or stick religiously to there selections, unless however its within automated software betting bots and if so then i would suggest you just leave such things running and ride out the highs and the lows.
In betting it does always pay to have or use a number of methods. By that i mean always do your own thing, have a reliable source or software or something you can rely on, from there make even more astute decisions, as to what fits into your preferred betting profile, (Backing/Laying, etc)
” We all as individuals make the final call, & i do think its better that way “
Some people stick to horse racing others have a flutter or two on other sports, football, golf, whatever it is thats fine my advise though would be keep separate betting accounts for each sport. Or for each method you maybe using.
If your laying have a sole laying account, for the rest of your horse racing have another account and ideally have a sports account for all the other bets you might make. Doing so just help you to not only stay organised but also stops you placing crazy bets if you have a bad day on one particular sport.
End of the day its my decision to place my bets, its also yours.
Talk soon & have a great weekend,
Thanks for that. I have seen most of your training stuff but my point is that most of the examples of selections produced are produced after the results. I would like to see your selection process put out before a race. As you have said ,patience is needed , but to find out after 3 months that a system is going 2 steps forward and 3 back is discouraging when certain key steps and points which you outline ,could be seen to be working and used by us learners.
