Lap­top lux­ury in malta

Ian Har­ri­son gets a happy hol­i­day

Racing Ahead - - GOLDCREST -

I’ve of­ten won­dered whether a tip­ping ser­vice like Gold­crest could op­er­ate from over­seas and I have just found the an­swer. I went to Malta for a hol­i­day between Oc­to­ber 5-15 and took my lap­top with me.

There I found two winners and the best of these was Opt Out which won at 7/2 early price.The ten days pro­duced three points in the end which proved that all the in­for­ma­tion you need is on the in­ter­net through ‘rac­ing­’ and ‘sport­’. Cou­ple those with ‘odd­’ and that is all you need.Those who took up my of­fer of a free Oc­to­ber are very pleased they did so.As of to­day, (Oc­to­ber 18), the to­tals are: 6 bets, 4 won, 9 points. 150% ROI.

I am sur­prised that more peo­ple don’t take early prices but I know that 95 per cent of my se­lec­tions will come down in price.Know­ing that,my ad­vices mostly go out the evening be­fore. Opt Out, our win­ner at an early price of 7/2 on the 12th had an SP of 4/1 so those clients who bet Best Odds Guar­an­teed had a laugh.

My best priced win­ner this year ran on Oc­to­ber 18. Ru­ral Cel­e­bra­tion in the 5.00 New­cas­tle was 6/1 when I gave it out the night be­fore.It won eas­ily from the front at an SP of 15/8. If you have a good strike rate and your prices gen­er­ally come in you need to get busy at 6.30 the evening be­fore. One of my clients had his bet se­verely cut back with Hills but got 11/2 with Bet365.

Do you check to see whether the jockey on board your se­lec­tion has won on it be­fore or been placed? You should throw it out if the jockey has ei­ther never rid­den it or been down the field in its pre­vi­ous runs with him.There is al­ways con­ster­na­tion in the me­dia when one of the clas­sic horses has a new jockey on board. They fight hard to main­tain the same jockey on these top flight horses and the same rule ap­plies in a Class 6 at Ling­field.

Speak­ing of Ling­field, I went to their Bat­tle of Bri­tain cel­e­bra­tion where the An­drews Sis­ters were sing­ing and the ladies were dressed in 1940’s fash­ions. This year I de­cided to go to their Ok­to­ber­fest which was strangely held in Septem­ber.I ex­pected beer to be served in steins, dirndl skirts and puff sleeved blouses.I ex­pected to see some leder­ho­sen and maybe an Oom­pah band.What a dis­ap­point­ment.I spot­ted one dirndl skirt and noth­ing else.

I started a Christ­mas Fund on Au­gust 1 with a £200 bank. The to­tal by the end of Septem­ber was £614 and the new stake £60.Bet­ting on the horses can never equal the to­tals you see from the Lottery. You have to take things a lot slower and think long term. Set­ting up a bank is the best way to do it and at the end of each month you in­crease the stakes to the new ten per­cent. Sim­ple.All you need is pa­tience and no, you can’t bet ev­ery day. Did you know that if you set up a £1000 bank and dou­ble your bank ev­ery month and set a level 10% stake you would have made over £4m by the end of the year.
