Fair play to Serena. She looked in trouble at 2-0 in the third and I did my hedge on Sakkari there. Found some reserves from somewhere and out toughed a player very much in her mould in Sakkari who hits it as hard as anyone on the tour at the moment. Close call but Serena goes through and looks set to have a right crack at that record breaking slam win. She really is extraordinary on that issue of levelling up a back score deficit! Still not lost it and a fool to doubt her ever!

Took my hedge on Pironkova at 32.0 as the news of Serena’s victory came through. Still can’t see the Bulgarian getting past the queen however she ends up against Cornet. Set up as I write but 2-4 down second set….. And lost it on a tie-break making some poor errors with the pace off the ball. Also second best in the long ground stroke rallies that have epitomised the match. Pironkova might have reached her watermark here. Does look tired. Both players playing with heavy leg strapping.

Mammoth effort by the Bulgarian to go through which keeps us in with some decent hedging potential in the portfolio. She found her big serve again third set which had deserted her in the second. Worn out just watching it me!

And then the bubble finally burst in the late matches with my banker ending 10/11 as Kenin failed to master an on fire Mertens. Muchova also failed to convert a 7-5 first set lead against Azarenka although we did thus get chance to hedge her allowing for some further possibility in the portfolio.

Hey ho. Thus ends the match betting and it was a decent run. Now just to roar on our unlikely outsiders in the portfolio! One to add into that. Putintseva @ 70.0 which then gives us all three longshots in the final eight and a consolation prize on each of the big guns. And looking at it now, although all things are always possible in women’s tennis, I think I like Putintseva’s QF chance the best. She hasn’t got to play either Osaka nor Serena! So I wouldn’t have her as outsider of eight! The 70.0 is value!

1st quarter winner: Yulia Putintseva @ 6.4  Second best: Angelique Kerber @ 4.5

This is not a gimme for Longhouse Sale as he has stamina to prove and a couple of decent rivals getting weight in Ballyhome and the Butcher Said but he was mighty impressive LTO and I have this one down as this year’s Maire Banrigh for the Skelton yard.Such a smooth looking jumper. And stamina is in the pedigree so there is just cause to think he’ll stay.

4-25 NEWTON ABBOT (Tuesday LIM not yet run)

Pretty disappointed in the Newton Abbot card after all but one for us to play – another unlike LIM race but to follow horse Little Jessture does look just that. Worth following.

Effectively escapes the penalty for the win over Beholden – which was a penalty affected result – but the times were good and the mare is up against a trio of PTP recruits who are difficult to appraise but all look longterm NH stamina sorts so I’d be hopeful Little Jessture can show that turn of foot again and see them off. No tissue as I write so prices are vague and I’m not wild about a lay anyways so I’ll leave that to you if you think there is a fav to take on against her. For me, just a small play on the to follow horse from a stable scoring well on the horses running to form indices.

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
