Still stuck in patchyville I’m afraid as I was guilty of underestimating another improver on Monday and definitely taking a step back for 24 hours now to review strategy and think about my next steps. I will be away from desk Tuesday evening so intend delaying Wednesday post until Wednesday morning having had chance to review how things are. This sort of up and down performance does happen with LIM at times and the importance of breaking even becomes my main focus and keeping staking cautious whenever opportunity is limited or no clear way ahead can yet be found. It relies always of course on what is on offer and just one race tomorrow and a 3 runner mares novice chase. Treading very carefully through that with it being such a tight betting heat and considering the form I am in.

Kalahari Queen is my idea of the winner, especially if her wind operation has the desired effect. Am not keen to lay Little Miss Poet however as the marginal tissue fav. She’s a horse I’ve tracked since her early crackerjack finish at Fontwell when she lost a nose to My Khaleesi. She won her debut Chase race LTO well enough although goes over further here which is not guaranteed to suit. Champ on board to offset the giving of weight and might win and is more likely in my book than Graceful Legend who looks a layable price at 2/1 being the one in the race least endowed with natural speed. I think she may well get caught out on this ground.

Not a massive play however. Just a careful punt to try and set myself up for the proper recovery mission when I get back in post.



0.25pt LAY on GRACEFUL LEGEND (around 3.0 and no greater than 3.5)

0.15pt BACK on KALAHARI QUEEN (around 2.75)


BLWM LIM strike rates:  LAYS: 48/67 = 71.64% :   BACKS: 8/44 = 18.18%

The Bozmail to follow list has a combination of simply the most exciting horses I’ve seen in current race watching and a selection of those I’ve gotten to know over the years who are getting close to the place where they can be expected to win again. The list is ever changing and I have a subs bench of horses waiting to get on all the time. Candidates also disappear with regularity if they underperform or look to have shot their bolt in the win. So a fluid list that you’ll see altering all the time. I’ll log entries on this sheet as they occur and recommend staking advices on the day they are due to run after I’ve had chance to assess the race they are competing in. These selections can be backed to fixed odds or traded either in or before running as is your preference. There is profit whichever way you play over time.


From June 2018, The Bozmail switched to recommending trading the majority of these runners, including inplay trading, to back at optimum prices and hedge accordingly when appropriate. Profit figures were increased on previous years because of that so if you feel confident enough to approach like that, by all means. I will certainly be playing that way. I shall however post as fixed odds selections and the service arbiter will settle all results to Betfair SP in line with his fairness to all policy.

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(that’s my 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)

5/ Never accept an overall loss. This has been my mantra for 22 years. The year the BOZmail posts an overall loss is the year I pack in.


I play cautiously and strategically with bank management also always in mind. The staggered acca is the attempt to win large from small stake. The LIM is the cashbuilder to gradually accumulate profit over a 12 month period.
