    Carried over from the old forum.....Running total 36 points PROFIT.

    Having backed the geegees since 1970, (and losing consistently the vast majority of the time), about eight years ago I decided it was time for a completely new approach.
    Instead of following the market leaders like 99% of punters I realised I had to find a EDGE.....I started to think outside the box,I started to assess whether the three outsiders in a race could be considered to have a reasonable chance of PLACING and hopefully WINNING.
    This approach needed a very different mindset, some days are good and some are plain awful, but often the are very exciting as there is nothing better than watching a 25/1 shot unloved by the market romp home.
    Most days I spend a hour or so going through the cards looking for possibilities,of course these could best be described as SPECULATIVE PUNTS,and stakes are low.
    I often take a very early price the night before with a BOG bookmaker,if I miss the price and have the time I will often take the best price just before the off.
    All bets are One point each way if 8 runners or more, I also back every selection to win only at bigger odds on Betfair.
    I simply do not have the time to give in depth reasoning to each selection and make no apologies for the eneviatable losing runs and lower strike rates.
    Anyone who decides to follow,strap yourself in and enjoy the ride.

    Just got back from Market RASEN and what a fabulous afternoon.....having backed RED GIANT last night at 20/1 then smashed into 7/1 before the off and impingement home by ELEVEN lengths.....in the next race we had a smashing run from DOCTOR THEA who nearly made all before slightly facing to collect the PLACE MONEY at 18/1 into 10s....SLEEP IN FIRST 12/1 was narrowly touched off for a place in the race after,and the same with WEST CLASS 40/1 smashed into 15/2 before the off,so nearly collected the each way money.......over at Chester RAJAR 33/1 ran a BLINDER collected the PLACE MONEY.....PENWORTHAM 12/1 collected the PLACE MONEY..,...all in all a lovely day.

    24 points PROFIT on the day.......running total.......62 points PROFIT.

    Thanks for all the support.
