But we had 6 winners this past Wednesday. They were:- Easter Day 9-4 Greatwood 15-8 Wilton Man 7-4 Cat O’Mountain 2-1 Fox Run 6-5 Out Do 2-5
At this time of the year the horses going over fences and hurdles are often racing for the first time since spring. Whereas the best flat racing horses have already peaked.
I do long for the days when one season ended and the other began on a definitive date. In days of old you didn’t have both codes of racing in action at the same time. One ended. The other began. Simple.
But these days we have flat racing on the all weather tracks all winter long. Often the quality of that racing is terrible. Trainers racing horses that have been on the run for many months and are past their best before date.
And in the summer months we have jumps racing almost every week. Again, the best horses are not raced at this time. They are being prepared for a campaign that will begin in the autumn and peak in the winter and following spring.
Punters should have in mind that there are times of the season when backing winners is more difficult than at other times of the year. Bookies make money at these times. Last Monday and Tuesday proved that. There were lots of long price winners and many a short priced favourite being beaten.
It is all about knowing when the odds may be in the favour of you, the punter, and not the bookmaker. And waiting for that moment.
At VG Tips I take on the bookie all year long. But not every day of the week. I warn members of my selections service when to avoid betting. If a day of racing looks ‘trappy’ I tell members not to bet. You should not bet every day for that is what the bookies want you to do.
Knowing when not to bet is more important than knowing when to. It is one factor that will lead to you becoming a profitable punter.
