Encouraging signs in the BOZmailers getting the hang of LIM market watching stakes yesterday as I saw a lump of you joining me in getting on Minella Voucher at the upper lay level of 3/1 which wasn’t value on the formbook but now we’ve seen the further market drift and the race, was pretty much giving us money! Ends a winning every day week and now for the run up to Xmas and the delights of the season. Strap yourself in. I’m focussed and in the zone!


Before tomorrow at Fakenham, a quick mention for the operational plan for the last few weeks of the 2019 BOZmail cycle. There will be no more monthly subscription renewals allowed from December 19th onwards as we wind down to the end of the cycle on December 31st but all monthly renewals done before that date will be honoured through to January 19th as I am keeping the sheet going in early January to give those still new to the sheet a chance for further siting and practice but remember that the discounted membership price for 2020 only lasts for current members until December 31st and so if you ain’t in yet for 2020, time to get in is probably now – or if Xmas expenses is an issue, sometime the week after Xmas. 

The marketing switch does then go to new members for whom the price is an increased one. It’s you guys who have supported me in 2019 who are getting the value deal!

Everybody signed up for 2020 or seeing out their monthly sub in January will receive the January 1st – 19th advices although these will not feature LIM. As advertised, that is being rested during January as it is traditionally a sticky time for it. I do however have LIM related advices lined up for that period which I promise will bring the New Year in with a bit of a bang! If your monthly sub runs out in the next few days, best way to stay in for the New year stuff is signing up for next year although I’m told you will get a sight of the rest of December 2019 publications. That applies to everyone who is currently a member. 

Then we take two weeks off end of January in preparation for getting the New cycle underway on February 1st. Look forward to seeing you on the starting line!


Meanwhile at Fakenham on Tuesday, this is a pretty tasty Handicap Chase where I fancy a few against the favourite Kilbrew Boy who is up in class for his win LTO and penalised 5lb plus a further 7lb riders allowance that he received that day. Takes on some decent sorts here in Encore Champs who has form behind Nube Negra at the course whilst Itsafreebee was racing in top class a few seasons back for Dan Skelton and has form behind Waiting Patiently and Politologue. Lost his way after and Richard Spencer has campaigned him on the flat and the all weather with some success before his return to chasing here.Can go fresh and won here after a long break. Very interesting. Volt Face looks good on ratings and Thomas Todd has course and distance winning form from LTO and receives weight from the fav. 

The most interesting horse however is Eureu du Boulay for Richard Hobson whose stable runs at 100% form in running still and we know how he likes to send one to targeted races to our cost after Defi Sacre at Musselburgh the other week. He part owns this horse who ran the past two races in France winning both although he was disqualified from the first win for taking the wrong course under Sean Quinlan. Claimer Harrison Beswick gets on here and watched him ride a nice winner at Ffos Las on Monday. He’s good and that 5lb off the back gives a sizzling look to Eureu Du Boulay who I take with a chance of beating the fav in a race filled with LIM cover.

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.
