July Tip Comp - Week 2

The second week of this month's tip comp. Not too much going on with a couple of point scorers. Betmanmike leads the way with 14pts, so has a few points in hand of Bird, whose original selection was a non-runner, and so got a touch of luck with the lowest number favourite in his race and put 7.4pts in his pocket. Just goes to show the tipping comp can work in many ways and winning and losing sometimes in the lap of the Gods. Still, plenty to play for so get those tips in nice and early with a 1pm deadline. If any entry fees are still outstanding please get those sorted this week. Plenty of cards to find a winner so take the chance to put your name at the top of the leaderboard. 

Good luck to all.

July's Tip Comp - Week 1

Another month to be a winner of the tipping comp. That's the plan for everyone who takes part. Did you know that some of the tipsters have won several hundred pounds? Winter has almost broken into the £1000 mark. Last month saw a dead-heat between Eric Winner and Mark J. It was a competitive month more interesting for the fact of just about anyone could have won the month with a decent winner. I imagine this month will see a higher win total. We have a 1pm deadline so get those tips in nice and early if you can. Please pay your competition fee. Not sure if we will have one or two players missing this month. 

Tipster selections:  

1:40 Chelmsford - Ossco 2pt w (Longbow) 5th 
1:50 Sandown    - Kurious 2pt w (Betmanmike) 1st (14pts)
2:05 Haydock    - Arctic Fox 2pt w (Winter) 6th
2:25 Sandown    - Lush Life 2pt w (OneEyeEnos)Unp

7:10 Nottingham - Swordbill 2pt w (Mickwalkersnr)9th

Good luck to all 

* NR - lowest number favourite

Note: Bird's tip selection was calculated as a win rather than each way so he achieved 7.4pts rather than 11pts as originally detailed.

June's Tip Comp Week 5

The final week of this month's tip comp. I'm posting this Thursday evening as I am off to Great Yarmouth races on Friday and back Saturday morning. A day at the races and an evening in the casino. So a little bit busy. This month has been pretty slow to get going with small points adding up here and there. However, it is one of the most intriguing conclusions to a tip comp we have ever seen with three leaders on 9pts: Eric Winner, Betmanmike & Oneeyeenos. Next, best is HCE with 8pts, Dan the Man 7.5pts, Jodonovan 6pts and Gazmachine 2.8pts. Fascinating. Who will win? Could be anyone as half a price could see a tipster come from nowhere. Get those tips in nice and early with a 1pm deadline.  

Tipster selections: 

1:40 Windsor   - One Step Beyond 2pt w (Longbow)4th 
1:50 Newcastle - Staxton 2pt w (Eric Winner) 1st (17pts)
2:05 Newmarket - Rosodora 2pt w (Winter) 4th

Good luck to all

Congratulations to Eric Winner and Mark J winning this month's tip competition sharing the prize with 26pts. 

The two free entries for next month's competition go to OneEyeEnos who finished 3rd with 15pts and HCE who finished 4th with 9.75pts. 

Thanks to all those who took part.

June's Tip Comp - Week 4

Another week. This month's tip comp has been a slow burner because last week, not one tipster found a winner. So, nothing has changed at the top of the table. Eric Winner heads the field with 9pts, with Jodonovan in second place with 6pts. No one else has a point. I predict someone will hit a decent priced winner this week. Fingers crossed. Thankfully for all tipsters, this is a long month with five Saturdays. Get those tips in nice an early with a 1pm deadline.

June's Tip Comp - Week 3

The third week of the tipping comp and I'm pleased to say we have a 4:55couple of points scorers. Last week saw a mixed bag of results. However, Eric Winner sits at the head of the table with ith 9pts, from Jodonovan who is in second with 6pts. Everyone is in joint third place (because they haven't scored). Still, plenty to play for with this long month of Saturdays. A couple of meeting has been abandoned due to the weather, so keep an eye on the rain.

June's Tip Comp - Week 2

Horse racing tipster competition
Sometimes you can throw 50 darts and still miss the bullseye. Perhaps we should take that down to 17 because not one single tipster found a winner last week. I think there were a couple of second places. The good thing about no winners is that there are no losers. So this week is a fresh start. We must find a winner or two this week. It's odd-on. So, there's not much more to think but get your tipping cap on and get ready for lift off. We have a 1 pm deadline (which is pretty close to the start of the first race) so please get your tips in as early as you can. We still have a few outstanding entree fees so get those sorted, too. 

Good luck to all. 

Tipster selections: 

1:25 Beverley   - Love Dreams 2pt w (Jodonovan) 1st (6pts)

June's Tip Comp - Week 1

It's a new month. 

May's competition saw a fight to the line. Betmanmike took the spoils with 40pts, just pipping Mickwalkersnr who was on 39.2pts. 

It was a close, gritty, competitive heat. 

Our illustrious competition has its twists and turns. 

We are back to normality this month (sticking to Saturday's). I must apologise for last week's change but I was in a fix and that seemed the answer to the question. 

Anyway, as a gesture of goodwill (and because I am a generous soul) - only this month - I will be giving free entry to next month's competition for the lucky pair who finish second and third in this month's play. It will be interesting if it brings about a different style of play in the final week.

So there is, even more, to play for. 

Good news!!!! 

Please give a warm welcome to a new player BABYJANE who wants to join our little tipster comp. 

Be lucky.

Please get your entry fees in if outstanding. We have a 1pm deadline for tips but please get them in as early as you can because a few meeting start not too many minutes after. Good luck to all.

1:55 Doncaster   - Broken Rifle 2pt w (Longbow) 6th

The Big Bad Tipping Competition

I love the Bloody Good Winner Tipping Competition. Over the years, we have added to the number of tipsters to a point where we are getting closer to prize money worth £200 a month. 

I guess a £10 entry fee and that amount of prize money is good. But what would you think if we had a tipping competition with prize money worth £1000 per month? 

This isn't going to take place any time soon. However, we are interested in creating an additional tipping competition with a £50 a month entry fee. Clearly, this isn't going to be for everyone. If you know someone who would be interested in playing for a substantial monthly prize then feel free to contact me or tell friends, family or even invite a tipster you may have paid for before. 

Interested? 

Contact jason@professionalgamblers.co.uk 

Good luck to all 

Week 4 - May's Tip Comp

The final week of May's tip competition and (surprisingly) it's on a Friday. 

You have me to blame for that!

However, everyone has been informed and because I am a generous soul next month I will add £20 to the total prize money for your understanding. 

Anyway, back to proceedings. 

Last week so little action in the way of winners, the best on offer being Mickwalkersnr getting a place worth 4pts. 

So the leaders board looks like this:

1st HCE 26PTS
2ND JODONOVAN 20PTS
3RD BETMANMIKE 18PTS
4TH MICKWALKERSNR 13.2PTS
5TH BIRD 3.8PTS
6TH MICKISHI 3.4PTS

Please REMEMBER your tip needs to be in on Friday before the 1 pm deadline. 

Thanks for your support. 

Good luck.

Moved To Friday!

Update: Saturday Tipping Competition

I've got a dilemma! 

My brother, Gareth, has surprised me with a day out on Saturday, and the train leaves at 7 am. 

Unfortunately, it is impossible for me to update the Saturday Tipping Competition on its designated day – Saturday. 

For that reason, the (Saturday) Tipping Competition will have to be moved to Friday 24th May. The normal deadline of 1 pm. 

I am very sorry for the inconvenience but I really am in a bit of a situation because I can't update the tips using my phone while I'm travelling across the country. 

Normal service will be resumed next month (as a thank you for your understanding I will add £20 to June's total prize). 

Please reply to this message to confirm you have received it and you will forward your tip on Friday 24th May, before the 1 pm deadline. 

Thanks for your support, 
Jason

May's Tip Comp - Week 2

The second Saturday of the month can only mean one thing - It's time to dust off your horse tipping cap and pick a winner. That's exactly what happened last week. Rarely have I seen such a flurry of winners. In fact, six tipsters put points on the board. A few put some big numbers in their satchels. We will go from the top. Jodonovan hit the ground running and leads with 20pts. A fraction behind is Betmanmike with 18pts. They are about half a furlong in front of the vying pack. Mickwalkersnr is in third place with 9.2pts. HCE started the month on a positive note with 8pts. Mickishi got 3.4pts with a placed effort. While Bird is perched just above with 3.8pts. He went very very very close to bagging a bumper points bonanza (Shukman, too) when Just Glamourous was denied by a nose at 14/1. Nice tipping from those finding a Bloody Good Winner. Please get those tips in nice and early as we have a 1pm deadline. no late arrivals. I think we have one or two outstanding entry fees. Good luck to all.

May's Tip Comp - Week 1 (4th May)

Well, another month has reared its head. But what about last month's comp? Longbow found a huge priced winner and in one tip sealed the month and £160 with a 16/1 shot and 34pts in his pocket. Dan The Man did nothing wrong in second place with just over 31pts. He had 3 winners and one second place, so a great month of tips. Let's see what this month brings. Plenty of meetings to choose from. Please get your entry fee and tips in nice and early with a 1pm deadline. I really need the tips to be forwarded before the deadline because I am very busy and it creates major problems with my work.

April's Tip Comp - Week 4

The final tip comp of the month. Who will win the cash? Last week we saw four players put points on the board. Dan The Man found another winner and added 4.75pts to his total and sits at the top of the table with 28.75pts. Racing Mama found another place effort and bagged 5pts. Mark J netted 13pts, and holds third position in the comp. Mickwalkersnr got a nice winner and added 13pts to his tally and in second place with a total of 27pts. This could be a fight to the line. We have a 1pm deadline so please get the tips in early or (particularly important) on time.

Kentucky Horse Derby Luck Magnet Bets of 2019

The 2019 Road to the Kentucky Derby has seen a series of races where horses qualified for the 2019 Kentucky Derby on May 4. The Derby field is limited to 20 horses, with up to four' also eligible' for a late field withdrawal. 

There are three separate routes for horses to take to qualify for the Derby: the main route consisting of races in North America (plus one in Dubai), the Japan Road consisting of four races in Japan, and a European Road consisting of seven races in England, Ireland and France. 

The points system that determines the field of 3-year - old horses in the Kentucky Derby each year was implemented before the 2013 edition of the race, replacing an old qualifying system that used earnings on graded stakes. 

Omaha Beach 

To the 2019 Kentucky Derby, the Omaha Beach was installed as the new favorite due to its impressive win at the Arkansas Derby. Omaha Beach is a 3-year old colt owned by Fox Hill Farms, Inc. Originally thought of Omaha Beach as a grass horse, he became the colt. 

This impressive horse was trained by Richard Mendalla, a hall of fame trainer who made some of the greatest feats of horse racing. He won nine races in the Breeders ' Cup, including his four wins at Santa Anita Park in 2003, capped by the victory of Pleasantly Perfect in the Breeders ' Cup Classic (G1). In the current Kentucky expert 2019 picks, his horse, Omaha Beach, earned his spot as the 3 - 1 favorite. 

From Omaha Beach’s performance, he won first place from three different horse racing competitions, namely, Maiden Special Weights, Rebel Stakes and on his latest win, Arkansas Derby. Omaha Beach is going to walk the shedrow to settle in after the van ride for a few days while recovering from his last race. 

Roadster 

Just behind Omaha Beach at 4-1 is Baffert’s third Kentucky Derby horse named Roadster. Roadster form Speedway Stable LLC. The horse is trained by Bob Baffert, a two-time Triple Crown-winning trainer with his horse named American Pharoah. Baffert has trained 13 American Classic Races, 14 Breeders' Cup races, 3 Dubai World Cups and the inaugural Pegasus World Cup. 

Earlier this month, Roadster won a six-horse Santa Anita Derby beating Game Winner in a nail - biter by a half-length held last April 6, 2019, in Santa Anita Park. Santa Anita Derby is a three - year - old thoroughbred American Grade 1 horse race. Its track distance is 1 and ⅛ miles or 9 furlongs. 

Game Winner 

Game Winner is a 3-year-old colt owned by Gary L. West and Mary E. West. Similar to Roadster, Game Winner was trained by Bob Baffert. Last 2018, the horse gained consecutive wins from four different derby competitions namely, Maiden Special Weights, Del Mar Futurity (G1), American Pharaoh Stakes and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. 

From Game Winner’s latest performance, he was declared on second spot on Rebel Stakes (G2) and Santa Anita Derby (G1). Despite his loss, experts are confident with him winning the Kentucky Horse Derby because of his consistency and speed on the track. 

Improbable 

One of Bob Baffert’s trained horses is Improbable who remained 1-2 in the Kentucky Derby Media Poll — owned by WinStar Farm LLC, China Horse Club International Ltd., and SF Racing LLC. Typically, Baffert starts a horse in blinkers and then takes it off once it's time to relax and stretch. Baffert wanted to try a different deal and figure out a new style then he added blinkers to Improbable’s training regimen. 

He is a Grade 1 winner at age two was unlikely to be defeated by a neck in his 3-year - old debut, running second at Oaklawn Park earlier this year to Long Range Toddy in the Rebel Stakes (G2). Improbable’s 2018 performance is quite superb for he won three successive derby competition from Median Special Weights, Street Sense, and Los Alamitos Futurity. 

Takeaway 

Betting in horse racing is one of the most enjoyable sports in the state. There’s a lot of factors where viewers/audience base on their bets. Some of them refer to statistics, luck magnets, and past performances. In general, many horse racing fans and experts focus more on top performing horses from previous prestigious derby races in the country. With that, they forecast the results on the next Kentucky Horse Derby. One factor people observe for odd picks is the horse’s profile. It could be its trainer or training regimen. 

Horse bet racing is somewhat fun, but you must do it in moderation. Play and gamble just for fun, do not focus your world on it. It is a high risk of opportunity. Kentucky Race Derby is around the corner, expert picks and competition predictions are all over the internet. When betting, trust your instinct and base on numbers and performances.

April's Tip Comp - Week 3

The third week of the tipping comp. Three players put points in their pocket last week. Racing Mama went very close to winning but a narrow defeat and placed effort gave 2.4pts. A couple of winners saw a change at the top of the tipster table. Mickwalkersnr found a nice winner and has 14pts, while Dan The Man (who went very close to winning last month) bagged 24pts with an easy victory. His horse drifted in the betting from 4/1 - 11/1 which contrasted with last month when a substantial gamble saw him find a winner but lose the competition by a quarter of a point.

Can Skitter Scatter Justify Her Favouritism in the Group 1?

The UK flat season may have only just got underway earlier this month, but many punters are already beginning to scour the ante-post markets in a bid to unearth some value. With a number of top-class fillies already entered into the race, the 1,000 Guineas looks set to be another suitable competitive affair, and John Oxx's Skitter Skatter has been installed as the early market leader. The three-year-old, sired by Scat Daddy, is certainly an outstanding prospect, but many pundits have begun to speculate about whether she will be able to justify a single-figure price in such a red-hot event.



John Oxx has recently joined forces with his neighbour Patrick Prendergast, and pair look set to form a formidable partnership this summer. Their stable star Skitter Skatter enjoyed a highly successful juvenile campaign and also holds an entry to the Irish 1,000 Guineas at the Curragh. Having won three of her first five outings on the flat, big things are expected of the three-year-old. Scat Daddy has a tremendous record with his two-year-olds, with the likes of Beatboxer and Legends of War also picking up notable victories in recent weeks. 

Skitter Skatter was successful in the Moyglare Stud Stakes, comfortably beating Lady Kaya by two lengths. She was subsequently installed as the 7/1 favourite for the 1,000 Guineas. The Newmarket Group 1, which is contested on the Rowley Mile has attracted a plethora of high-quality entrants with the likes of Just Wonderful, Dancing Vega and the aforementioned Lady Kaya all prominent in the betting. Former Cheveley Park runner-up The Mackem Bullet may also return to the UK for trainer Wesley Ward, and she is currently 20/1 in the latest horse racing betting to spring a surprise. Having been previously trained by Brian Ellison, the impressive filly moved to the US and has made a winning start for her new yard. She was victorious in the Grade 2 Appalachian Stakes at Keeneland at the beginning of April, seeing off a late challenge from Catch A Thrill. 

John Oxx claimed that his star-filly was "underrated" last season, and suggests that there is still plenty of improvement to come. He also praised her temperament, before suggesting that they won't be testing her beyond a mile anytime soon. 
It's been a tough couple of years for the trainer, who has found winners hard to come by, but his newly-formed partnership with Prendergast looks promising, and the pair will be targetting a number of lucrative contests this summer. They currently have over 70 horses in training, including a number of promising two-year-olds.  Aidan O'Brien has dominated the 1,000 Guineas in recent years, with Winter, Minding and Homecoming Queen all landing the spoils for the County Tipperary-based trainer, and he is likely to be targetting the race once again. Richard Hannon's Billesdon Brook was successful in the 2018 staging of the classic under the ride of Sean Levy. 

There are plenty of high-quality contests to come over the next couple of months, but the 1,000 Guineas is one of the standout events on the racing calendar, and some value-hunting punters are already beginning to place their ante-post bets on the second of the British classics. Skitter Skatter will arrive in Suffolk amid plenty of hype, and she does look to be in unstoppable form. Despite stiff competition, she should be able to further enhance her burgeoning reputation on the Rowley Mile at the beginning of May.
