I think that probably was indeed a very good race we just watched at Perth and I stand by Redford Road being likely to come out as the quality long term chaser. Jumped well enough and going to be better over three miles. But only third so the two that finished in front look smart as well and they make the to follow also given that Saglawy was a top hurdler and he was out with the washing when he fell and was the one in the race with a recent run under his belt. Carroll’s Milan was backed and ran unexpectedly well.

So the optimism I’ve been trying to generate the past few days as we eek our way gently out of September does look justified. The better horses are starting to arrive as they do on the cusp of a new NH season and this mares handicap at Uttoxeter for Friday has also been a joy to study. Comparative to all the shit of the past six months in any case!

There is still some September guesswork in it with the reappearance after layoff of Black Tulip and Prettylittlething with both given a bit of a chance on paper with Prettylittlething under a jockey I’ve never heard of but capable of winning after long lay off as she did for us last year when beating Midnight Folie at big odds. I consider her the value in this with Takingitallin the other I would have against the field to take advantage of the penalty the front two must carry. Of them I slightly prefer Absolute Jaffa over Simply Loveleh on times and did consider a double lay but it is still September and the profit is nimbly ticking forward so on balance I refrain from risk taking and play simply for more cautious value. Admiral’s Sunset not out of it as further LIM cover.

Backed @ 10.5 : hedged 0.4pts @ 3.8 : P/L = +0.245pts 

Well done if you got some of the 12.0 briefly available last night. I did not expect that sort of market and I changed my plan to greening out when a huge run came on Menzies’ horse and I got as low as 3.8. I did dither because that sort of gamble usually suggests stable confidence and concerted form study had suggested a very competitive race with Skelton and Twiston Davies also having talking horses therein and our boy having to give weight to them all. So in the end I took the value of between 0.2pt and 0.3pt profit either way over the possible 1pt+ profit if I gambled on a free bet win. The cautious trader won the day as I had decided it was a trade play ultimately. Wasn’t that confident myself of a win. And now I’ve seen the race, I called correct. Market did come for all the others again before the off and we were back out to 7.2 toward the off. That was value as a back price but he didn’t run as I’d hoped really and showed the negative of the weight carry to the extent that he goes off the to follow now whilst that mark looks in need of coming down before he’ll win again. 

With the racing about to start getting proper competitive now, he looks like he was a summer jump candidate only. Done his bit for us though. No complaints on that score!

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
