Picking Winners From Form

Daily Selections Subscription

(17th August) I have suspended free selections on this page for the foreseeable future. For the present I shall be passing on my selections by subscription only, at a reduced rate of £7 per week or £22 per month, so if you want to share my sometimes wayward, sometimes brilliant, but always thoughtful and honest, selections, please email me anytime. Note: Many of my selections do not win on the day, but win sometime later, so it is worth noting them for the future. Indeed several have won since! They are always picked because they are due a win, and the subscription is worth it just to get a list of potential future winners. However, I will continue to post my results here after racing. Have a look at my results recently: Winners at 40/1, 33/1, 25/1, 22/1, 20/1, 20/1, 18/1, 16/1 nap, 16/1, 16/1 nap again, 14/1, 14/1, 14/1, 14/1, 12/1, 12/1, 12/1, 12/1, 12/1, 11/1, 10/1, 9/1, 8/1, 8/1, 7/1, 7/1,11/2, 9/2, 4/1 and 5/2, etc, plus places at 50/1, 40/1, 25/1, 20/1, 20/1, 16/1, etc!, including a number of firsts and seconds (with good forecast returns) in the same race! All of these were genuinely sent out around midday!

(2.00 Donc) Tax Free (non runner) /Star Rover (unplaced) (3.10 Donc) Follow On (unplaced) /Eastwell Smiles (non runner) (3.30 Utt) Kinsya (unplaced) /Eastern Gift (unplaced - due now) (3.45 Donc) Mu'tab (unplaced) /Ramona Chase (won 9/2!)

(5.20 Sedg) Sunshine Always (fourth)/Kurtanella (third - no value as usual) (5.25 Good) Humourous (led, unplaced - will it be next time? God (or the trainer) knows!)/Bocciani (led, fourth - again!)(5.50 Sedg). Why do I get so many fourth places? It's enfuriating!

6th Sept: The Tatling (unplaced - lowest mark ever!)/Barons Spy (won 11/2!) (3.10 Bath) Cashel Blue (won 8/1!) /Triggernometry (unplaced) (3.30 Newt) Elkhorn (unplaced - due soon!)/Divine Spirit (unplaced - also due now) (3.50 Newc) Tampa Boy (fifth)/Some Craic (third 20/1) (4.00 Newt) Nothing Is Forever (nap) (third)/Classic Fly (fourth) (4.30 Newt) Xpres Maite (well backed - led most - unplaced - thrown in soon) /Navajo Joe (non-runner) (4.50 Newc) Wild Power (fourth)/Nesnaas (third) (5.00 Newt) La Columbina (nb) (fourth - must win now) /Garafena (disputed most - unplaced) (5.10 Bath) Nuit Sombre (third 20/1 - thrown in now -eased up?) /Bentley (unplaced) (5.20 Newc) Hartshead (unplaced - must do better soon)/Geojimali (non-runner)(5.50 Newc). A couple of winners and a couple of good places, but more consistency need - not from me, but from the trainers!

5th Sept: Mad Professor (sixth)/Tora Petcha (seventh - must win soon) (1.50 Worcs) Space Cowboy/Alrafid (2.10 Font) Kerkabellec (pulled up - thrown in soon) /Lough Rynn (sixth)(3.00 Worcs) Temple Place (non-runner) /Welcome Stranger (ran on fifth - due soon) (3.35 Worcs) Valery Borzov (ran on eighth)/Abraham Lincoln (ninth) (3.45 York) Hail The King (unplaced - thrown in soon)/Heir To Be (led most - sixth) (3.55 Font) Moon Melody (won 4/1!)/Gift Of The Gods (third) (4.30 Font) Cossack Dancer (nb) (led most - fourth) /Postmaster (second 12/1) (4.40 Worcs) Fishforcompliments (second 6/1) /Bond City (non-runner) (4.50 York) Isintshelovely (led most - unplaced)/Dora Explora (unplaced) (5.00 Font) Palomar (nap) (last - so it's next time then - they certainly make you wait!)/Robby Bobby (unplaced - thrown in for a race soon) (5.20 York)

I have to admit that only Petrocelli (third 50/1) was even placed today, so a worse than typical Saturday! Keep a note of the above, because coincidentally none of them were wanted today, even though top-rated. It is rare for this to happen to almost every selection on any one day!

3rd September: Cold Quest (fourth)/Berbice (third 14/1) (2.10 Muss) Smart Endeavour (third 7/2) /Swift Return (unplaced) (3.00 Bright) The Bear (unplaced) /Burnwynd Boy (unplaced - thrown in off this mark!)

(6.20) Baby Strange (fifth)/Spectait (unplaced) (8.20) Icelandic (non-runner) /Imprimis Tagula (unplaced) (8.50) Corrib (fourth)/Tres Froide (fifth) (9.20) Four winners in total today, including 16/1 and 12/1. My tip from 19th August, Malcheek, 14/1 winner of the 8.50 Wolverhampton! The perennial problem with tipping is the my previous tips often win when they are not best in and I have selected a better handicapped runner!

1st September: Negotiation (10/1 second)/First In The Queue (8/1 winner!) (£85.82 forecast!) (2.20 Ling) Gunnadoit (unplaced - should win soon) /Bazart (unplaced - ran on late) (2.40 Her) Rapide Plaisir (nap) (sixth) /Sea Cliff (third 4/1) (3.10 Her) The Composer (fifth)/Spiritonthemount (fourth) (3.20 Ling) Beaver Patrol (nb) (won 9/2!) /Highland Harvest (unplaced - will do better soon)(3.30 Bright) Chevy To The Levy (won 7/1!) /Winter Star (unplaced) (3.40 Her) Electric City (unplaced - keep it in mind!) /Red Barcelona (unplaced) (4.00 Bright) Frosted Grape (won 4/1!) /I'm The Decider (last - next time!)

(5.15 Leics) Capable Guest (third 9/1) /Smugglers Bay (unplaced) (5.35 Rip). A good number of places (seven) today, but a winner or two would be nice! Dove Cottage (my selection on 20th August) came second today at 14/1. My tip from 22nd August (see my comment then) Royal Holiday 16/1 winner of the 7.40 Southwell!

30th August: Chrysander (third 11/2) /That Man Fox (unplaced) (2.30 Hunt) Yurituni (second 16/1) /Royal Blade (led, unplaced) (2.35 Eps) Peak Seasons (second 4/1)/Murphys Beau (third 7/2) (2.55 Cart) Indian Pipe Dream (second 20/1)/Silmi (won 5/2) (£46.45 forecast!)

(5.40 War). Thought it was going to be a productive day for a while there! But it is never possible to keep it up for whatever reason! A few fourths and thirds in seven horse races, as usual! Not a bad start, but the volume of racing was horrendous today, and almost impossible to keep up with!

29th August: Fremen (second 7/1) /Stonehaugh (third 16/1) (2.20 Bev) Gone'n'Dunnett (unplaced) /Chandrayan (unplaced) (2.35 Yar) Trafalgar Square (nap) (non-runner) /Mavalenta (fourth) (2.45 Good) Aviso (fifth) /Cativo Cavallino (fourth) (3.45 Yar) Gower Sophia (third 9/2) /On The Piste (unplaced) (4.05 Bev) Guto (nb) (second - nose- 9/1) /Nawaaff (non runner) (4.20 Yar) Red Kestrel (led most - fourth - I'm good at those)/Kames Park (fifth) - they like doing that to me) (4.40 Bev) Negotiation (non runner)/Agapanthus (last) (4.55 Yar) Battle Study (led - fourth)/Akamon (won 7/4) (5.15 Bev) Spiritofthewest (missed break - how often do I say that?) /Calabaza (unplaced) (5.40 Good). I have put all my fourth and fifth places today in blue, and I assure you that each and every one of those should have been in the first two, but they like to mess around!

28th August: Gallagher (nb) (unplaced)/Mata Keranjang (disputed, eased off!) (2.00 Good) Dabbers Ridge (nap) (third 8/1) /Saucy Brown (led, unplaced) (2.25 Bev) Syrian (unplaced)/Take It To The Max (disputed much, unplaced) (3.00 Bev) Look Busy (missed break, ran on late)/Masta Plasta (led, unplaced) (3.30 Bev) Galpin Junior (fourth) /King Of Swords (unplaced) (4.05 New) Front Rank (won 5/1!) /Orpen Wide (pulled up!)(4.20 Cart) Highland Warrior (unplaced - next time!) /Equuleus Pictor (unplaced - soon!)(4.30 New) Kerrys Requiem (fourth) /Perfect Flight (4.50 Good) Royal Flynn (second 5/1) /Galley Slave (won 11/2!)

My selection from the last three times, Angus Newz (see 9th and 13th August and 26th July) 11/1 winner of the 4.30 Newmarket! They do win eventually, they just like to string us along a little! If you keep a note of my selections, they will reward in the end! A couple of winner and a forecast today, but it is a Saturday!

27th August: Beckermet (second 5/1) /Pearly Wey (unplaced) (1.40 Thirsk) Andorn (non-runner) /Jeu De Roseau (unplaced) (2.10 Thirsk) Memphis Man (unplaced) /Desert Icon (second 3/1) (2.30 Ffos) Kings Point (fifth) /Commando Scott (won 4/1!)

A few good results, but still more needed!

26th August: River Falcon (third 16/1 - beaten a nose for second) /Zomerlust (won 6/1!) (3.10 Ayr) Duplicity (unplaced) /Cansili Star (won 11/2!) (3.20 Ffos) Hinton Admiral (unplaced)/Vhujon (unplaced) (3.30 Ling) Jewelled Dagger (disputed, unplaced) /Kimberley Downs (led, unplaced) (3.40 Ayr) Sri Kuantan (led, unplaced - keep it in mind) /Chocolate Caramel (second 15/2) (4.10 Ayr) Weetentherty (unplaced) /Itsthursdayalready (third) (4.40 Ayr) Crocodile Bay (nap) (fourth - I could see it coming!)/Bourse (fifth) (5.15 Ayr) Vinces (third 6/1) /Christophers Quest (unplaced)(5.00 Ling) Petite Margot (second 3/1) /Thunder Hawk (fourth) (5.55 Cart) Stolen Light (third) (6.55 Cart) Panzer (third, of course) (8.00 Cart) A couple of winners and a few places, but still disappointing. I'll hit them one day! So many thirds in small races!

25th August: Hosanna (unplaced)/This One's For Eddy (third 11/2) (2.40 Ayr) Kings Point (fourth) /El Dececy (won 9/4) (3.10 Ayr) Kings Majesty (unplaced) /Andorn (won 11/2!)(3.20 Catt) Marafong (nb) (fifth) /Chat De Soie (unplaced) (3.30 Bright) King Of The Moors (unplaced) (third at 28/1 on 26th August!) /Moheebb (unplaced) (3.40 Ayr) Just The Tonic (left in stalls) /Tukitinyasok (second 5/1) (3.50 Catt) Talk Of Saafend (unplced) /Shy Glance(4.10 (unplaced) Ayr) Raccoon (nap) (unplaced) /Countrywide City (unplaced) (4.20 Catt) Reach For The Sky (unplaced) /Coolree Star (unplaced) (4.40 Ayr) Electric City (fifth) /Dispol Kabira (unplaced) (4.50 Catt) Hold On Tiger (fifth)/Six Wives (unplaced) (5.10 Ayr). A good start with a win or a place in each of the first three races, and then almost nothing! Unaccountable! I think they are giving me fifths instead of fourths now!

24th August: Eastern Gift (sixth) /Astrodonna (unplaced) (2.30 Yar) Whatcanyasay (fell)/Schinken Otto (second 4/1) (2.45 Sedg) Spitfire (third) /Doric Lady (fourth) (3.30 Yar) First Fought (third 12/1 - ran on when too late - typical) /Hapthor (refused to race) (3.45 Sedg) Nobel (nap) (sixth) /Harcas (fifth) (4.15 Sedg) Inner Voice (fourth) /Humourous (unplaced) (4.45 Sedg) The Hermitage (led, last, of course!)/Blue Lyric (unplaced) (5.00 Yar) A Pocketful Of Rye (third 12/1) /Aqua Vitae (second 12/1) (6.40 Kemp) Aeroplane (unplaced - ridiculous! Should certainly have won off this mark!)/Dickie Le Davoir (non-runner) (6.50 Leics) Williams Way (nb) (sixth - thrown in, never made any effort to compete, and was just lobbing along! There, I've expressed my opinion on that run) /Graylyn Ruby (unplaced - also much better than its finishing position) (8.10 Kemp) Bell's Ocean (fifth) /Mororless (non-runner) (9.10 Kemp). A very disappointing set of runners today, most of which can do much better. Come on chaps, give us a chance!

23rd August: Silly Billy (fourth)/Johnny Hancocks (unplaced) (2.15 Kemp) Saviour Sand (led, unplaced) /Given A Choice (unplaced - will do much better) (3.15 Kemp) Little Edward (third 12/1)/Danzoe (won 20/1!)

(5.20 Kemp) Front Rank (third 4/1) (nb)/Regents Secret (fourth- ran on too late again!) (5.35 Ham). Two winners at 20/1 and 11/1 today, plus several places! That should see you in profit!

Evening selections: Green Wadi (third 22/1) (6.45 Windsor) Robby Bobby (last, of course!)(7.00 Carl) Berbice (non-runner) (7.30 Carl) Bold Marc/Dhhamaan (disputed lead, dropped back to sixth) (8.00 Carl) Convince (fifth) (second 8/1 30th August) /Ginobili (unplaced) (7.45 Winds). What do you have to do to get the best horses to perform?

22nd August: Cold Quest (nap) (won 16/1!) /Officer Mor (unplaced) (2.20 Muss) Landucci (fourth) /Fault (won 4/1!)

(5.20 Muss). Four winners today, including my nap at 16/1! A few better efforts could have had a few more winners!

21st August: Indian Trail (unplaced) /Victorian Bounty (fifth) (2.20 Chest) Klynch (nb) (fifth) /Saucy Girl (unplaced)(2.30 Rip) Bathwick Breeze (fourth) /Moon Melody (third 9/1) (2.45 Newt) Flipping (unplaced) /Muwalla (fifth) (3.05 Rip) Ramona Chase/Jo'burg (3.10 Sand) Silverburn (third 12/1) /Pablo Du Charmil (unplaced) (3.15 Newt) Mastership (unplaced)/Red Cape (unplaced) (4.10 Rip) Young Tot (nap) (fourth again - how long will it take?)/Ouste (unplaced) (4.55 Newt) Ballinteni/Archie Rice (5.25 Sand) Treasury Counsel (pulled up) /Bring It On Home (non-runner) (5.30 Newt) Green Manalishi/Green Park (third 11/1) (6.10 Chest). Very poor today, as usual for a Saturday, although I got a good profit from other races (typical)!

20th August: Rio De La Plata (won 7/1!) /Cesare (unplaced) (2.15 York) McQueen/Some Magic (2.30 Bang) The Jobber (nap) (unplaced - must win soon off this mark!) /Even Bolder (third 7/1) (2.40 Sand) Nordwind/Dancewiththedevil (3.40 Bang) General Elliott (unplaced) /Halsion Chancer (unplaced) (3.50 Sand) Palomar (nb) (unplaced) /Wicked Daze (second 12/1) (4.40 York) Sovereignty (unplaced)/King Columbo (fourth) (4.55 Sal) Not My Choice (led, unplaced) /Figaro Flyer (sixth) (6.45 Wolv) Royal Premier (non-runner)/Dove Cottage (non-runner) (8.05 Sal) Out Of Nothing (led, fourth)/Athboy Auction (unplaced) (8.50 Wolv) Bid For Glory (unplaced) /Hindu Kush (third 4/1)(9.20 Wolv)

One of those days best forgotten. This game has an incredible tendency to buoy you up one minute, then knock you down the next!

17th August: These selections were genuinely sent out today on the subscription service before 1 p.m. and you can see that they include four winners at 33/1, 14/1, 8/1 and 7/4, plus another 5/2 winner sent out a few days ago!

A 9/1 winner and seven places today. At least good priced places keep you going, but it would have been better if a few had won, as they certainly could have!
