BOZmail 3rd DECEMBER – the 2020 home of the BOZmail

Welcome to the BOZmail service including the daily LESS IS MORE bet



LIM 2020 Strike rates: Lays 117/164 = 71.34%  Backs : 33/102 = 32.35%


Well, that was a surprising Wednesday result in classic LIM style. The unconsidered one comes to the rescue! Espoir De Romay looks a good horse so we won’t be laying that again and I’d say we did get a bit lucky. Redford Road has also been given his last chance and was very disappointing again despite a welter of money pouring on. I hope that wasn’t all ours!! Knowing Willie Twiston Davies, I’ll be guessing the stable went wild with him (and their bumper horse in the last). Worth noting that because it happens a lot. If they bet a NTD horse heavy, doesn’t mean he’s gonna win. They do have a rampant gamblerholic in their midst. At least I think that’s what he is. He may just be a crap tipster! Somebody from the yard keeps losing their shirt anyways!!

Our LIM protection highlighted again for what it is. THE cautious way to bet and I call the manifesto into action again on Thursday and call a NO BET day despite expecting a busy old week. The second research horse on the Falberto line is a non runner on Thursday and runs at Sedgefield on Friday instead. It looks a good line as you’ll have seen so we’ll play the patience game and wait for that. The research does look sound. Ironically the only qualifier over jumps in the UK on Thursday is the race Paricolor was contesting but he is also a non runner now. I looked at that race with him in it and had an angle but without him in it, the waters get muddied so I’ll pass that as a no opinion race. Which applies to the only other two qualifiers on the day also – one in Ireland and one on the all weather. 

Plenty for us to choose from on Friday so we’ll take a clear day off and prepare for that. Put a nice ring round the winnings from today’s two races – one of which was a play winnings up bet you’ll remember. His job now done and can be scratched from the To Follow list. Not a horse to follow now that he’s won!

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.
