It’s always nice to hear back from subscribers to my VG Tips selection service. Working long and hard to research race meetings can be a lonely business. So knowing my efforts are acknowledged and appreciated is reassuring.
Juliet has been with VG Tips a long time. Immediately after super Saturday concluded, she e-mailed me to say:-
“Thanks for the tips. I had a great Goodwood and Galway thanks to you.
“I really like a small price lucky 15, each way ones are really fun (and quite cheap). I was nearly in for £1k return on some of your selections and Jessica Harrington’s, Justina. She didn’t win but I still made a 6 fold profit on the lucky 15. If I’d followed your tip of Royal County Down all legs would have come in, but you can’t win everything.
“I’m going to plough my Goodwood and Galway winnings into Ben Pauling’s new syndicate so, once again, thanks a lot.” Juliet.
Here’s what I wrote about the race at Galway. The one in which Juliet chose to oppose my selection:-
“The Aidan O’Brien trained Royal County Down won by a nose a week ago and is taken to back that up with another victory here.
“The colt faces a filly from in form trainer Jessica Harrington. Her Justina was beaten three quarters of a length last time out and beaten by an opponent called Lougher.
The reason I prefer Royal County Down to Justina is that Royal County Down had the same Lougher three lengths behind him when a runner up at Tipperary in early July.”
I encourage members of VG Tips to be independent minded. To read my detailed analysis, digest what I have to say and then make their own mind up. To be selective with my selections and take on board the opinions of other fellow punters with a proven track record of success.
As things turned out at Galway, my Royal County Down came out on top in a hard fought with Justina.
Juliet may regret opposing my selection in that race, but she was good enough to convey her appreciation of my racing tips throughout the week of good quality racing at Goodwood and Galway. That’s why I concentrate on the better quality meetings.
As I am fond of saying, any punter or tipster can be judged on the success or otherwise experienced on one day or during one week of betting. Someone may subscribe on a day of losers and decide I’m an idiot. Someone else might join during a week of ten winners, at Royal Ascot for example. They think I am a genius who can walk on water. Neither is true.
What I am is a long time profitable punter passing on the benefit of my own betting experiences. The lessons I have learned over many years. Using articles published on this website, and videos on YouTube, my wish is to help others bet better.
I want you to beat the bookie at the end of each year and, like me, finish every calendar year in profit. I will continue to work hard for those who subscribe monthly or annually. Nice people like Juliet are always welcome. Not so unrealistic moaners who think betting on horse racing and football is a fast route to millionaire status. It isn’t and it never will be. Anyone who tells you otherwise is having you on.
