Friday 21st August 2020 + Summary + New System




15.15 – York – Battaash. Won in style earlier in the year at Goodwood. Difficult to past this rascal. WIN.

15.50 – Newton Abbot – Templepark. 2 at the top & ours, ridden by Mmmm That’s Nice Max, has weight penalties. Odds don’t justify a split, so with doubts, I’m going for a WIN.

16.00 – Kilbeggan – Curlew Hill. Made a mistake at the last hurdle on its last outing but ran really impressively. WIN.



15.15 – York – Battaash. See above.


RATCHET – Instructions For Ratchet: 


NEW SYSTEM – Same principle as Ratchet but with half the stake and a target of half that of Ratchet. I do this for fun.

14.15 – York – Enbihaar.

15.15 – Battaash.

15.50 – Templepark.




Well, what a scorcher of a day! Superb day’s results meant I hit target on all systems. I did however, change from a win to a split on race 1 as the hours moved forward and the odds were suprisingly good for the Place.


13.45 – York – Sacred. Great odds for a win. I hope Mr Marquand pulls it off. WIN. RESULT – 2nd. I changed to a Split bet & because of the high odds, I made a small profit, so on to Race 2.

15.15 – York – Love. Our old mucca, the famous soccer commentator Brian Moore is on board. Even at the age of 109, he should cruise this one. WIN. RESULT – 1st. Job Done. Target Hit. Nomore Tripler betting for me today. Good old Brian Moore.

18.00 – Chester – Spright. Clifford Lee Van Cleef rides ours. Stiff competition from a newish horse. Swayed to go SPLIT. RESULT – 1st. Lee Van Cleef wasn’t Good, Bad or Ugly. Well done Lee. 🙂



15.15 – York – Love. See above. RESULT – 1st. Job Done & Target Hit.


RATCHET – RESULT – Job Done & Target Hit on Race 1. (I cheated and went against all my principles; I carried on to Race 2, which also won. So, although I keep telling myself not to carry on when I hit my target, I did. And increased my profit. Never again!)



13.45 – York – Sacred. RESULT – 2nd.

15.15 – York – Love. RESULT – 1st.
