    Good to see! I myself had a 9/4 winner and a loser so small profit also. Never backed the Derby at all. Well done getting the winner!

    Hi Steve
    Another Saturday - another bet on the horses.After last week's wrong choice between two possibilities I decided to choose 2 -or 3 - in the same race. Bet 12 altogether 2 races with 3 and 3 races with 2 . 4 winners . Fortunately, the prices were pretty good so had 8.25 points profit. So being " Chicken " sometimes pays off.
    Winners were Basem -Waady - Twilight Son - Red Baron.

    I know it is silly to back three horses in the same race when you don't know the prices but I'll give it one more chance. If I lose I'll revert to betting my own picks. So here goes :
    SANDOWN
    2.00 -waady - mecca's angel - salt island
    2.35 - basem - jacob black - sahaafy
    3.10 - black cherry - jellicle ball

    HAYDOCK
    2.15 - lady tiana - miss marjurie - jordan princess
    2.50 - penhill - battersea.

    My own picks in these races are :
    SANDOWN -
    2.00 - mecca's angel
    2.35 - barye - basem
    3.10 - black cherry - hundi

    HAYDOCK
    2.15 - miss marjurie
    2.50 - watersmeet - elbereth

    No luck needed of course !

    Ah ! Well ! A half- point profit is not a loss I suppose.
    Clever Dick me left out two of Timeform's picks - and one of them won at 10 /1 !
    I still think money could be made from this if you stood in the Bookie's for all the races. Not for me though.
    What MIGHT work for me though is betting ALL 3 of Timeform's picks in each race MINUS my own selections !
    Roll on next Saturday !

    Four and a half points profit from 9 bets is not too bad considering my strategy is not so much to win as not to lose !

    A bad day at the office for Timeform - AND me !
    11 x £1 = £11 bet Return 1 winner at 7/2 - LOSS of £ £6.50 !
    I still think the use of Timeform can still be profitable if eliminating some of their picks. For example, as I have said before I don't bet horses over the jumps but I bet 3 today - and lost £3 unnecessarily. On the other hand I did not bet one of their races because of a small field and so avoided another £ 3 loss .
    If I was in the bookies at the time of the actual races I would not bet any that had a price lower than 4/1 because betting 2 or 3 horses in the same race needs odds of over 2/1 to show a profit and we need EXCESS odds to pay for the losers .
    Eliminating some of their picks is the obvious answer but WHICH to eliminate ?
    btw Steve I don't bet e.w.. I would rather bet 2 in the same race to increase the chances of backing a winner .Betting for a place is for pussycats !!!
