OK, so Hitman goes on the list for that but that was a race about jockeys more so than horses. Hitman did make his mistake – and a fairly bad one two out – and I thought for a moment we were going to get a winner as the only finisher! The reason Mack the Man was so far back however was because unlike bright and breezy champion jockey elect Harry Cobden, who concentrates and is ready to race, dozy duck Robbie Power gets caught napping at the start gifting 10 lengths to a horse like Hitman! Probably still wouldn’t have won but at least he would have been in a race. Of course it is possible Robbie’s instructions were to give the Welsh raider an easy introduction and get him round safe. Reason again I trade and play LIM! You can see from the strike rates above that my approach to betting horses changed once we could bet on favourites to lose rather than the heartache of picking a winner only for the jockey to fall asleep at the start! Afraid Mr Power does not go on my list for that!

Unbeaten start to November continues however and keen to see if I can keep that going on Monday.

To Follow horse Oscar Rose gets a loyal vote here although conceding topweight will be no gimme and has penalty for LTO win to concede also. I have Dame du Soir and Nightfly as dangers on my figures although I do think ultimately that Oscar Rose has more class. Those runs behind Leoncavallo and Fanzio continue to read well. The lay is a bit of a long price and so is only a token lay to cover stake but I think Jubilympics will have a lot on the plate to win this up in class and also carrying penalty for the win in lower grade LTO.

Get the best price you can and hedge as appropriate and/or when preferential odds are offered.

This is one of Bridgey’s potential good ones on a high mark here for the win end of last season but looked up to carrying it on seasonal debut at Plumpton only beaten by the need to blow away the cobwebs. I think he’ll go well here and I also think 4/1 is a bit mean so might be worth hanging out for better than that. I might go as I did with Defi Sacre on Saturday and hedge only half back early and hang on to some for in running late on as it won’t be a surprise to see him involved in the finish. Jockey booking and stable form figures however not the greatest so caution may also have me making sure I’m green before the off. Especially if I do get offered better than 4/1 in the early market exchanges and there is decent profit either way. That experience with dozy duck jockeying on Sunday will take a while to be forgotten!

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.
