Bloglins Bloglems… They're Gremlins Problems With One's Blog…

Gremlins, dear reader, appear to have attacked my email notification system currently, which is why you've been spammed recently by me.


I have had to switch off the notification emails until I can work out what's happening with them, so remember to check back from time to time when you get a minute.

Now, if you'll forgive me for that, I hope you'll also forgive me for this final reflective touch of self-indulgence from last week. (I'm actually trying to cheer myself up, after splitting from my dear lady... My fault, not related to Cheltenham... Enough already.)


Dear matt
I would just like to say thank you for the best Cheltenham i have ever had started the meeting off with just £20 & ended it with £1,191
if you are doing the same for aintree i would gladly pay a small fee for the right to receive your thoughts of that meeting
once again thank you


Hi Matt,
I think you've every right to put bookie links on your blog page, you give damn good advice on there for free!
Once again yesterday you got me my stakes back with your selections, that's the 3rd time you've done it for me!
A better man would trust you completely and be considerably better off!


Hi Matt
Your analysis of tomorrows Cheltenham races is a real 'tour de force' or lose, absolutely brilliant. Miles in front of all the others I deal with, and, believe me, I deal with a lot!.
Let me tell you now; you really are the best,


Matt, absolutely wonderful selections on Nag Nag Nag, I had Nenuphar Collonges and Silver Jaro (85s) on Bf.
I did Tidal bay for myself on TTuesday and then followed TTS onto Katchit, so have had a great week.
Many thanks


Hi Matt,

Just a note to say a BIG thank you for your blogs on the Cheltenham Festival. They provided great entertainment and as it turned out a pretty profit too. I was following your portfolio picks and whilst I was only doing a trivial £2 a point I managed to get Silver Jaro at 99/1 on Betfair - Wa Hey!! Hope you had a great night last night and that your head is not too sore this morning!!!

Best Wishes to You


Hi Matt.....
**** here again....I would just like to extend to you many thanks and my gratitude for a wonderful blog throughout the whole of Cheltenham.....You handed many people a very profitable Cheltenham....That person should not judge you on one bad call with Master Minded....especially when you made so many other brilliant calls throughout the week!!!!!!I think everyone would agree that you can be more than forgiven for that tiny hiccup!!! I, along with many others, sincerely hope to god that you do another blog for Aintree and continue to share your wisdom through the flat season!!again......many thanks.....


first of all i'd like to say i found your blog in the week prior to cheltenham. your insight into the racing was excellent and very informative as i am a great believer in trends. been waiting for your reaction to friday but it appears you are still on the lash :-) celebrating silver jaro, typically being human i was dissappointed with taking the 46 on betfair the night before racing. betfair sp 86s. typical human greed never happy 😉 i particularly liked when things didnt quite go according to plan you didn't paper over them and just got on with it. once again well done and i hope to hear more from your future blogs. trends is the way forward imo. here to the winner of the grand national . fingers xd. well done.


Just a quick note to say thanks for some great advice thru' TRENDS on your blog, i found it to be very helpful, Using TRENDS i had a reasonable cheltenham, i bet on 20 races , only each way (due to generous prices) (ie no placepots or dutching - 1 horse per race) and had 2 winners and 8 places, and when you are getting 7/1 for a place (neptune collonges) it means i ended up making over 60% profit on cheltenham.Of course Nenuphar Collonges helped esp. as i got on at 14/1.


Enough already, my back is so sore from all that slapping. Seriously, it was a fantastic week and I doubt we'll ever be able to repeat it. But do consider this. Using a similar approach last year, we also slurped up 20/1 and 50/1 winners courtesy of Ferdy Murphy's L'Antartique and Joes Edge.

And we had the Grand National winner, SP 33/1, put up on here when available at 100 on betfair.

Ok, I need to get back to it: research for TrainerFLATStats really coming together now, and looking pretty exciting!

Talking of exciting... after no less than 333 days off track, Rapid City, in whom I own a leg, makes a very long awaited return to action at Kempton in tomorrow night's 6.50. I shall be there, but really he is going to be blowing out of his ample hind quarters after half way, so any interest should be kept to a minimum. [I'd do very well to take my own advice come post time!]

Bye for now.
