Eight days in a row now and moving toward those earlier in the year consecutive double figure successful days lays. Been very much a conscious effort since that scratty patch end of October and played specifically with mending the lay SR back up toward its 66.66% annual average. Getting there now. Staking has been noticeably cautious in November and hopefully I’ve given new November members a buffer now so that I can afford to be more adventurous. That said, they have also been a week of unappetising races in November so pretty pleased to have come out of it without a loser. Now to see how long I can keep that going but you see why I will be advocating closed shop membership next year. Had we been doing that now with the 60 odd point sheet buffer to reinvest, I would have been more adventurous with bank management this past week. Not much mind given the quality of the racing! And I didn’t post the winner in the morning on Thursday race as I said I might despite hinting at it yesterday. Number crunching was inconclusive so caution once more where it subsequently proved unnecessary. Hey ho. The old better safe than sorry very much in my DNA!

This beginners Chase looks very much a case of between the top two despite Yeats Baby being an interesting dark horse on chase debut. If taking to it, could be the value although question mark over the ground. Likewise, Midnight Tune might just be the one on the ground of the top two. Sensulano doesn’t mind juice however just a slight question mark about quickening up on soft but the all weather stretch is going to help him with that I’d say and in general he wins it on times and back form with No No Juliet as further cover being the one most likely to appreciate the Fontwell hill if still in contention at the end. All in all, a moderately confident lay at the prices and a good LIM play so up stakes a tad on Friday.

(Backed @ 2.7 : Hedged 1pt @ 1.33) – P/L = +0.49

Successful play for me risking just over a third of my winnings on a preferential hedge with the race very much in the balance. Stood to win +0.52 (less commission) if going on to win so pretty much a 50-50 hedge as push came to shove at the end. What the purists call a perfect trade. Jump at the last all that cost Floressa. She stays on to follow for that.

Hope you had similar fortune.



Same again Friday. Take best price you can get and hedge back at preferential in running. Thomas Darby is top class opposition but will need to jump so by no means without hope that the Skelton horse could win. Trade for me however.

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 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 profitabilty 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 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.

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 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.”  Boz
