Wednesday’s Recommendation:


Laid @ 2.0 : Hedged 0.14pt @ 3.2 (averaged) : P/L = +0.108

I thought the money would come for Salsoul but in fact it was Bergerac and quite hefty in the hour before the off. I slanted my hedge toward the fav winning as

he became the value being the experienced runner in the race. Bergerac hit as low as 3.4 but it was a red herring right enough although the Jardine stable form – the reason I was against at too short – has been poor hence the gamble on the doubt until he became a value on the form element. All about the prices you take and the reasons why.And so bringing my LIM deficit in under a point.

Been a bit like pulling teeth the LIM trade clawback and this last one came out not the worst albeit you had to be patient to profit properly. Big lesson. It continues the process. Has its critics I know but those pulling back a bit of LIM loss with me are learning at the coal face so to speak. Two winners and two losers for traditional LIMs in this phase and a profit playing traditionally but more achieved in four successful trades (and with no losing risk) and a couple of the bad four on the losing run erased now. In this game it is and always has been as much about dealing with losing as celebrating winning. And worry not those sitting out and watching us suffer, we’re getting back to the celebrating winning again soon I promise!

The first sign of a proper BOZ meet after the UK restart on Thursday as Bath swings back into action. Too many runners still for LIM so we’ll continue our sit out and I haven’t found a reliable trade play either for Thursday but not an entirely blank day as shortlisters will know because we actually swing back into serious action there with our first traditional official meeting since March 14th at Fontwell. Ascot was an experiment and not an unsuccessful one finding a couple of 20/1+ BSP winners and ending level stakes up over five days to BSP prices (and just under break even to ISP) and acting as further strong litmus test for The Boz as he waits for the prevailing wind to turn in his favour so that we can set sail properly again. Fontwell,Sedgefield,Newton Abbot et al are not far away again now and this meet at Bath has been the first in three months that I’ve run a deep clean rule over. Picked every bone I have and not found any certs nor any LIM qualifiers but a couple of halfway house longshots to whet the appetite nevertheless. Its more of a litmus test meet so if you are sitting out June as I know many of you are, don’t let me tempt you back in prematurely. I’ve already made that mistake twice. Watch and see is a good policy at the moment without question of doubt.

This is a trio of tasty longshots however to play on our occasional acca facility to very small money. Been sat unused on our heading since the restart and time to dust it down and give it a whirl perhaps.  Here’s my three purloined from the shortlist. Make of them what you will.

BATH: 5-10 JAGANORY – 0.01pt WIN

I considered this race for LIM with Equipped as joint 9/4 fav on early tissue and eminently beatable and a fancy for both outsiders highlighted by the shortlist. Coronation Cottage remains a strong fancy but has been backed down to 13/2. He remains a danger but Jaganory’s price has stayed long and as a course and distance winner can be given a strong form chance if turning up fit and ready. I don’t have many stable contacts associated with flat racing but Christopher Mason’s is a stable I watch and his stable star Glamorous Anna – who was a two year old they had hopes for last year – ran a belter at Windsor last night at 40/1. George Rooke has been booked (positive) and on a spiffing mark. Traditionally needs the run so is also a watch for the to follow list and why we are getting the price. That readiness to strike FTO has to be taken on trust but stable form gives hope. Paddock watch recommended if serious betting is considered. BOZ is playing watch and see. Equipped’s price put me off the LIM play but he is also non runner this morning. Such are the vagaries at the moment.

BATH: 6-10 WASEEM FARIS – 0.01pt WIN

Milton Harris is my man and I’ve backed Waseem throughout his long and distinguished career. So this is a personal loyalty bet. Came up on the shortlist at 40/1 yesterday and had me salivating. Milton has only had him a short while and three undistinguished runs at Kempton on the scorecard. But Milton emerged from the earth at Bath racecourse and saves all his stings for here. Waseem loves the place too and that this is their first go together at the track is what attracts me. Milton is a marvellous instinctive trainer. Out of form (usually is) so we get a price still. 28/1 at last look. You’ll get better on the exchanges. Nobody fancies it. Perfect! Not the smartest jockey in the world on board (negative) but Milton likes him and they do win together. Waseem runs well fresh so if Milton has primed him, we might go boom. They are both old boys now. Both know what they are doing! Paddock watch recommended again!   

BATH: 8-10 DOVILS DATE – 0.05pt WIN

The nap of the night. 7/2 with Betway still this morning. Took a lot of action yesterday after the shortlist appeared. Was 5/1 early tissue. This is a hurdle race prep and there’s a decent forecast shout with another old mate of mine in Nachi Falls. Dovils looks the deal though. A thorough stayer who’ll love the ground. Hasn’t won on flat in a while so on a good mark and ran a cracking prep at Lingfield behind Elaheifi – a horse a BOZmailer has an interest in and who we keep tabs on. We’ve ruled that form and given that Dovils missed the break, he stayed on lovely to be beat just 3 lengths and gets the full trip here. Expect to see him powering down the hill. Probert on board. Only downer is that it is a competitive field on paper. Aren’t they all at the minute? Might have been a proper bet otherwise. Still feeling my way into the season.

3 x 0.01pt WIN DOUBLES : 1 x 0.01pt WIN TREBLE : TOTAL STAKE = 0.11 pts

Good Luck with yer 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. 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
