I’m not religious. So, no, that’s not why I rarely offer tips on a Sunday. During the jumps season there are occasional fixtures on a Sunday that are worth bothering with from a punting perspective, often in Ireland. Each week I look to see if there are some high grade races that offer potential value in the betting market. But that is rarely the case.
And, for my own sanity, I find that I do need at least one day of the week when I am not studying form. My friend, Channel 4’s Jim McGrath, was for a long time the main man at Timeform. A successful punter in his own right, Jim says that if you study form for too many years, you’ll end up in the mad house.
Well, after 16 years of studying form weekly, the men in white coats have yet to knock on my door. I’ll be sure to let you no when they do!
Have a pleasant Sunday. Weather permitting, the next tips will be for racing on Monday.
