BOZmail – end of 2019 cycle scores on the doors – the 2019 home of the BOZmail

Welcome to the BOZmail service including the daily LESS IS MORE bet.

Current Total      = +7.5813 points



Current Total      = +18.8032 points





A decent race read to end the year but a pretty awful market read! Whoever pasted up the tissue on Kupatana at 15/8 should be taken outside and shot! If you did manage to lay it (and there was some miniscule money at 4.1 matched I note) then you’ve ended the year on a winner. Small minus for most of us and given it was the only LIM qualifier of the day, we gave it a shot with no real damage done. December proved a down on usual month but up in the ‘Good Gain’ category just about thanks mainly to Maire Banrigh who was our end of year star as suspected.

The ‘Losing’ months:


And there you go. Another year done and The Bozmail maintains its reputation as a profit all the way vehicle.Fifteen years of it now. Not a vintage year but solid and lessons learned as always to take forward into 2020 which I consider the ‘go for it’ year after a trial year of working with an agency who have done as they promised in widening the audience. Now for heads down and making some proper money!

Don’t forget that Tuesday is the final day for current members to sign up to next year’s service at the discounted price. Big price hike on January 1st! Still a few current member places vacant.

The 19 day JANUARY JAMOBOREE BOZmail special starts tomorrow and will likely be posted each day on the morning of the events. So no more relying on early tissues for a while at least! A bit of fun and some goes at exotic bets mixed in with The Boz’s

more normal cautious profit gain approach. The shortlist system will be called on, The To Follow list will be maintained and drawn on and a few extras also up the sleeve for an interesting play here and there. I liken it to a ‘fortnight in the penny arcade’ as a treat and a bit of light relief from the months of toil we have undergone together. Bank all your profits from 2019 cycle and come armed with just a few points to play in the arcade. You won’t need more than 4 or 5 points is the plan. And if it works, you’ll have paid your 2020 serious sub all over again! I have an ante-post Cheltenham festival play lined up for day one (or maybe two). One pound stake at odds over 55,000/1!!

That’s the sort of thing I have planned plus a few through the card efforts on the shortlist system. And the odd banker lay along the way.

See yer there! And thanks again for all your support in 2019. It has been a blast.

Happy New Year to you all.

PLANS for the 2020 BOZmail:

The main development for next year is an annual subscription service only which will become available for purchase from December 1st 2019 and will be limited to first 150 purchasers. Membership will be closed when that number is reached or on January 31st 2020. Activity will begin on 1st February 2020.

The 2020 service will not be covering horseracing during January 2020 nor September 2020 as statistics have shown these to be negative months for LIM.

The 2020 BOZmail cycle will thus be a 10 month cycle completing on December 31st 2020.

The reason for annual subscription membership only is so that all members will be at same bank management level throughout. This enables The Boz to practice greater profit reinvestment in his staking levels (thus increasing overall profitability). Something that has not been possible in the 2019 cycle where new members were joining all the time and members were thus at varying bank levels throughout – leading The Boz to be more cautious in his staking levels than was ideal.

Membership of the 2020 BOZmail is recommended for those with some experience of how the service works (at least a month to six weeks)  although new members will be admitted up to the subscription closing date on January 31st 2020 if places are still available. First chance to purchase subscription however will be made to current members only. The service will only be advertised to non members after December 31st 2019 if some places are still available. The capping of numbers for the service is hopefully self explanatory to those who have experience of the service.

There will be some changes to content although the main focus will remain on the daily LIM service and the to follow trading advices in UK horse racing. Tennis coverage of the women’s Grand Slams will be limited to Wimbledon and the French Open only in 2020. There will be ad hoc accumulator advices throughout the cycle as they arise. The staggered acca approach practised in 2019 however will be discontinued. Simply hasn’t been as successful as hoped.

Never afraid to cull its dead wood is the BOZmail!

There are plans to introduce a paddock watching element to the service and to organise various days at the races during the year for those interested in advancing paddock watching skills and using these as an enhancement to their punting profitability generally. Details of these days will be available to BOZmail annual subscriber members only and will come at no extra charge (other than responsibility for paying own course entrance fee). The Boz is also publishing a guide to UK paddock watching in 2020 and will thus be in attendance at all UK racecourses at some point during the year collecting material for the book.

If you have any questions or queries about 2020 BOZmail annual membership at this stage, please feel free to contact The BOZ direct as always via email ( TGH Trading will be in touch in the coming weeks with personal invites to all current members to purchase first chance 2020 membership detailing cost etc. Opening date for purchasing 2020 membership will be December 1st 2019. First come,first served. 

With thanks to all who have supported the service in 2019 and here’s to a highly profitable and enjoyable 2020!



 Good Luck with your bets.


The BOZmail golden rules:

1/ Try to look where others do not.

2/ Make sure your selections are as good as you can get them(the boz’s job here)

3/ Get your staking right (up when confident – down when less so or when managing bank)

4/ Do all in your power to get best price available(whether that be using price comparison sites or using partial staking techniques on the exchanges when unsure which way a price might go. Be careful not to take exchange ‘silly prices’ if you are going in early on a lay price or if a specified low lay tissue price goes on a significant drift. Always check bookmaker tissue prices first to get a guide on what to expect from the market if it is not yet properly formed on the exchanges. As from March 2019 onwards, advised not to take BETFAIR SP prices on lays following some adverse returns therein over the January/February period. The recommendation is always to secure a price (if possible) within the published parameters when actually placing the lay bet. Your discretion based on personal form study and watching the markets develop also encouraged to ensure you maximise returns.The staking advices are a general rather than rigid dictate – mainly for the less experienced and those not able to spend time watching markets develop and practising the optimum betting time skill. Remember also that a lay price available at a significantly lower level than stated on the sheet offers opportunity to increase lay stake without increasing calculated safe lay liability. This can be a key profit optimising tool in the long term if your form study agrees with that published by The Boz.

5/ Always keep in mind the long term ‘importance of  breaking even’ philosophy and practice. This is very much used by The Boz in his staking advices and is recommended in your betting practices – especially during the down spells – in order to maintain a healthy and consistent bank.

6/ Always remember the BOZ does traditionally suffer from Murphys Law. If he expresses his opinion but states that he won’t be betting on it himself and isn’t making it an official tip, remember that historically these can be his best advices! The 2019 Grand National opinion expressed paid a £2,260-93 tricast for a £60 (£1×60) permed stake (five selections). 

7/ Never accept an overall loss. This has been the BOZ’s mantra for 22 years. The year the BOZmail posts an overall loss is the year he packs in.
