Welcome to my website where you will find articles (the majority of which have been published in the London Racing Club magazine) concerning trips to Irish horse race meetings over the last 20 years as well as betting exploits there and at other tracks. There is also some information on Ludlow, photographs from university days in the late '60s as well as a few photos from my travels in Europe. 

I operated a free advisory betting service for six years commencing Dec 2009. Complete annual results can be found here:20152014201320122011 and 2009/10. Blog betting advice closed on 1st November 2015. The blog achieved 1,622 points profit (21.5% ROI) from December 2009 (max bet was 20 points, average bet<5 points). Bets which were not resolved by 1st November 2015 displayed here:2016/7 b/f.

    Recent betting highlights:

    The Australian Open ladies' singles final, Melbourne 27 January 2018


    The first grand slam of 2018 provided a winning start to the betting year. Once again I chose four women against the field to win the event. 
    Crucially I took (and advised on Twitter) the 33/1 Wozniacki on 25 October 2017. The total profit on the Australian Open (including men's
    losing singles' bets) was 40.5 points (11 points were staked). 

    The US Open ladies' singles final, New York 10 September 2017


 The US Open ladies' singles event proved to be a betting bonanza. Twitter followers were
 advised outright bets on four big-priced players: Svitolina, Keys, Stephens and Makarova.
 Keys was taken @ 25/1 ew and Stephens @ 66/1 ew. In fact those followers with Sportingbet
 accounts were advised to take the 100/1 ew Stephens.

 When it came to the final it was sitting back, enjoying the match and calculating the winnings....   
    The Cesarewitch, Newmarket 14 October 2017
    Season finale? It's been a very profitable flat season again although not as good as 
    2016, which was a record year. In the 34-runner Cesarewitch I suggested three ew 
    bets on Twitter: Withhold @ 12/1, London Prize @ 20/1 and Endless Acres @ 16/1 
    (PU, injured). Withhold was backed into 5/1 favourite and won easily with London 
    Prize finishing a comfortable second.

There where the course is,

Delight makes all of the one mind,

The riders upon the galloping horses,

The crowd that closes in behind
