Encouraging result on the flat again on Wednesday and if I’d suspected the Crowley ride would go off at 11/4, I’d have put that in as a back! I expected even money! Just goes to show. We didn’t influence the market on Wednesday and scored one against the book. Long may that continue. About time I put a winning LIM run together!

Tempting as it is to stay with the flat now it is behaving, NH provides an opportunity for the next few days so we scoot back across the codes and take on this novice hurdle at Wincanton.

I think the one that nabbed Celestial Force at Hereford on Tuesday might be a good one and he’ll make to follow if Celestial Force turns out again here (and wins) which some seem to think he won’t. I shan’t be surprised to see Nicholls trying again with this one at his favourite track and think he has Moon of Baroda covered even giving the weight. The Hughie Morrison charge looks over rated to me on his Newton Abbot form albeit behind a good one. But  a long way behind. Has to improve a bit to beat Dave and Bernie never mind Celestial Force so at a short price I take Moon of Baroda on. If tissue market is inaccurate and Moon of Baroda drifts, I wouldn’t be wanting to be going beyond 3.0 for my lay and obviously less than that if Celestial Force does prove to be a non runner.

NH TO FOLLOW/TRADE horse on Thursday at Carlisle:

1-52 SHE’S A ROCCA @ 16/1 – 0.1pt BACK

Get the best price that you can and hedge as appropriate or when preferential odds offered.

Conditions not ideal for this as a back only as the Richards horse is still learning the jumping game and strong suggestion on form that heavy ground is the ideal and some juice at the very least required. Distance may also be shorter than optimum on breeding. This might all happen a bit quick again. I would still expect a pre race trading opp though and get the biggest price you can and hedge back to a green position before the off. If there has been distinct improvement in this mare since we last saw her on the racecourse, you can expect stable money to appear on the market and may then act accordingly (i.e. save some for in race trading). And don’t forget the 1.01 in play if she is running a big race!

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. The recommendation is always to secure a price (if possible) 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.

“I play cautiously and strategically with bank management always in mind.”  Boz
