Saturday 23rd JunePublished: 23/06/2018

Good MorningToday will undoubtedly be our busiest Saturday of The Flat season in terms of the number of bets advised. We have significant number of runners today but feel with (a) No tips tomorrow and (b) probably very small field in part in next 5-7 days on increasingly firm Going, that the overall staking at end of month will be well within normal confines and therefore not abnormal as medium term strategy for betting Bank. I think it could be a quiet post Ascot week if the blazing sun ar... [Read More]

Friday 22nd JunePublished: 22/06/2018

We have Day 4 of Royal Ascot today and it does not get any easier, it may be though we are due "a little luck in running" so we enter the fray again full of hope and expectation. There are no less than 7 other Fixtures dotted around UK and Ireland, we looked closely at Ayr and Wetherby plus also Newmarket, but have found a decent NH race at Market Rasen too with a couple that have been in the Tracker for a while and who look to have solid chances today.We have ELITE SERVICE tips and analysis on ...

Thursday 21st JunePublished: 21/06/2018

Good MorningWe have ELITE SERVICE analysis and tips in the 5.00 at Royal Ascot and the Daily Tipsters look at the 3.05 (The Professor) and 5.35 (Placespotter) respectively + a few "mentions" and a Tricast Perm in the 5.00There are times when Horse racing can give you a timely kick in the goolies! That's why in my humble opinion you should never go over-board about successes, as the reality is; the "bite back" will come. We have had a great run with The Elite Service over the past few months and ... [Read More]

Wednesday 20th JunePublished: 20/06/2018

Good Morning.A good start to Royal Ascot yesterday.Lord Glitters ran a stormer for Elite Service in the opener finishing runner up at 22/1. The two Irish horses disappointed, can't say they went "too fast" as the first 2-3 furlongs did not look visually fast, may be they needed it to have been more steady fractions. Interesting that Accidental Agent beat Lord Glitters by 1/2 furlong at Ascot on 7 October 2017 over 7 furlongs, and again Course form holds up here. Spencer did nothing wrong on LG h... [Read More]

Tuesday 19th JunePublished: 19/06/2018

Good MorningA very busy day today with the start of Royal Ascot and also Flat meetings at Beverley; Brighton and Thirsk; NH at Stratford and Irish action too.The ELITE SERVICE in the very capable hands of Michael will focus on the 2.30 and 5.35 races at Royal Ascot.The Daily Tips and Mentions cover the 2.45; 3.55 and 5.45 at Thirsk and there is also a Tricast Perm suggestion in the 5.00 at Royal Ascot.

Monday 18th JunePublished: 18/06/2018

Good Morning;It is sometimes good to have a "mental refresh" and after big priced winners on 4 successive days from Tuesday to Friday last week; and a very busy week ahead, it has been good I hope to "switch off" for a few days. We have 4 Flat Cards today at Ayr; Carlisle and Nottingham, the other Card is at Windsor, a track that as you may have figured, wouldn't touch tipping wise with a "barge pole". It is pretty low grade stuff by any context; not in the least against what starts at Royal Asc... [Read More]

Thursday 14th JunePublished: 14/06/2018

Good MorningThere is plenty of racing again today with action at Haydock; Newbury; Nottingham and Yarmouth on the Flat and Uttoxeter over the Jumps with Leopardstown also racing in Ireland. We have selections (tips) today from The Advisor at Newbury and Placespotter at Nottingham and a few mentions with two at Nottingham and one at Haydock ParkI don't think I'll enjoy many more wins more than Sexy Secret, as a former part co-owner (with a very small share) you do have extra affinity for the...

Wednesday 13th JunePublished: 13/06/2018

Good MorningThere are some decent Class 2 races today; that's the good news, the bad news is that they are all at the biggest dump on the Racing Circuit (Chelmsford) quite why the naffest of the naff AW tracks should get these races over long established and cracking Turf venues is beyond my comprehension, may be I am the dinosaur in the room and the "old git" but it is a worrying trend and another example of better quality races being dished out to M25 tracks who invariably have poor "walk up" ...

Tuesday 12th JunePublished: 12/06/2018

Good MorningIf yesterday was bereft of each way value in the main, tomorrow looks the same; today is chock full of big field handicap races with enhanced places and good each way betting opportunities. It is mainly low grade stuff, but enough of interest for us to "push the boat" out a bit, using up some stakes saved from quiet days on Sunday and Monday and important to use the "odds to 4th place" options to optimise profit chances and to back each way.We have TIPS from The Professor at Salisbur...

A litte clarityPublished: 10/06/2018

In a recent e-mail I touched on some "bones of contention" that still seem to be the reason for 90% of the mails that I get.It seems worthwhile therefore to repeat these and to put them prominently on to the website and to have them clear in all minds;if for no other reason than for complete clarity and transparency and to act as a "base" around which everything is reported.Tips and Mentions - a TIP is a tip advised at full stake (NEW par is 1point each way) a MENTION is a speculative tip advise...

Basic SP2A Betting and Staking protocols and guidesPublished: 10/06/2018

The following is a method we share with all SP2A Members when they initially join the service, we appreciate thatto some this is very basic, and to others it is "pretty obvious" but it is important I think to set out guidance for anyonenot versed in the nuances of setting up a disciplined Betting Bank and Staking Plan, so here is our standard Guide-;Create a 100 point Betting Bank to a "Unit" that is affordable and acceptable to you as an individual.E.G 10p Unit = 100 x 10p = £10 / "&pound...

Saturday 9th JunePublished: 09/06/2018

Good MorningI thought that Danecase was a bit unlucky last night at Haydock, did everything right and nothing wrong just got caught by a bit of a tartar in the context of the race. A 12/1 winner would have been very nice, instead a bit more each way money; the suggested Tricast came home 2nd / 3rd / 4th as a result!. A similar scenario for Traveltalk on an otherwise disappointing day at Carlisle and a pretty frustrating week of low calibre racing, after a great start to the week with Tanasoq on ... [Read More]

Friday 8th JunePublished: 08/06/2018

Good MorningI don't feel on reflection that we missed out at all yesterday having had a "no tip day" nothing sprung off the page as "missed at nice odds" with the possible exception of Wotabreeze who we had tipped to an enhanced place last time and who was in the tracker BUT we had studied that race in depth and decided it was "was too tricky" on the day, so no regrets as we could honestly have picked 3-4 before it.I do think we are in a bit of a "lull" period with Royal Ascot just 10-11 days aw... [Read More]

Wednesday 6th JunePublished: 06/06/2018

Good Morning;A couple of possibly unlucky runners up yesterday with Constantino finishing very fast at 10/1 and Roparta Avenue just losing on the nod; Dropzone paid a bit of enhanced place shrapnel too and Danceintothelight just missed a place. A day when the each way strategy came to the fore again, and just about got us out "wiping the nose / break even".At first glance today is very poor fare with Flat action at Hamilton and Wetherby, AW at Kempton and Wolverhampton and NH at Uttoxeter and a ... [Read More]

Tuesday 5th JunePublished: 05/06/2018

Good MorningA nice 14/1 winner for "The Mentions" yesterday with Firm Decisions sees their tally since inception on 21 April as 235 points (1 point level to BSP) and an ROI of over 95% to BSP. It has certainly so far proven to be a rich seam of profit. The other Tips and Mentions failed to fire, but nonetheless another small net profit on the day to SP +BSP.A strange look to the Fixtures today with no Turf Flat Racing at all, three NH Fixtures and a decent AW Card at Newcastle. We will though ag... [Read More]

Friday 1st JunePublished: 01/06/2018

Good MorningWe have ELITE SERVICE brief analysis and tips in The Oaks at Epsom.Valueman has attacked the 5.50 at Epsom with 2 selections at nice long odds and we have a couple of "juicy mentions" too.The Elite and Daily Tips for Saturday will be issued to all Subscribers at around 8.30pm tonight.As Members will be aware, THE SP2A Office will be Closed at mid-day today (Friday 1st June) until 6.00am on Monday 4th June.

Thursday 31st MayPublished: 31/05/2018

Good Morning;There is Flat Racing on Turf today at Hamilton (Good To Firm and dry); Lingfield (Good to Soft and possible storms) and over the Jumps at Ffos Llas (Good - watered and possible heavy rain later). There is also AW at Chelmsford and Wolverhampton and Irish action too. I have highlighted the weather and Going after some frustrations yesterday - see review notes below.We will focus on Lingfield; we can be pretty sure that "soft" will feature in the Going whatever happens and looking clo... [Read More]

Wednesday 30th MayPublished: 30/05/2018

We have Flat action at Beverley; Ripon; Nottingham today and NH at Cartmel and Warwick; there is also action in Ireland.The North of the Country has so far escaped the worst of the thundery rain, however it looks set to get some today; how much is unclear as is how much it will get in to the turf, but there are some very well fancied and short priced "hoof rattlers" so we are looking for some well handicapped types, who can handle conditions if the rain does not materialise but who will also be ...

Bank Holiday Monday 28th MayPublished: 28/05/2018

Good MorningWe have 2 tips today with one each from Placespotter at Redcar and from Robin and Huntingdon and a smattering of "Mentions".Our more established Members will know that we used to take Bank Holiday Monday's off as the sheer number of horses/meetings and the fact many have "punting day off" made them a nightmare. In the past year or so, we have had a quiet day and tried to find a bit of fun and value, and we will do the same again today.We have had some nice winners and placed horses o... [Read More]

Sunday 27th MayPublished: 27/05/2018

Good MorningA briefer than usual message this morning.I will cover off yesterday's results tomorrow, suffice to say to advised prices a nice profit for both Elite and Daily Tips, nothing spectacular but a bit more for the kitty.Those who followed the Speedway tips will know that we found 3 of the 4 finalists this time (all 4 last time) and a winner plus placed 2nd with each way odds to 3rd place. The Overall Betting market that we advised tips in (as well as each Round) looks great too after 2 o... [Read More]

Saturday 26th MayPublished: 26/05/2018

Good MorningA very busy day of Racing with no less than 8 Meetings, a few too many I suspect. There is also some great footballing; cycling; cricket; gold; Motor Sport action this weekend too and plenty for all tastes.I will cover off the results from yesterday and today on MONDAY but a couple of great rides from Hayley Turner and Frankie Dettori ensured a nice profit at "advised prices" yesterday, of course as always we shall record them to SP/BSP - more on those results on Monday.The SP2A Elit... [Read More]

Friday 25th MayPublished: 25/05/2018

Good MorningThere is some very decent action today at Bath; Goodwood; Haydock and Pontefract on the Flat and at Worcester over the Jumps + Irish Racing. The dominant feature though has to be RAIN. It has positively poured down in The Midlands since about 2am and looks set until early afternoon. I have no doubt that Haydock; Pontefract and Worcester will be run on Going considerably softer than forecast and whilst the South looks drier, safe to assume Good To Soft at best at Goodwood.I anticipate...

Thursday 24th MayPublished: 24/05/2018

Good MorningThere is some decent Flat action today, very southern centric it seems with Goodwood and Lingfield racing this afternoon and no doubt lined up to ensure jockey's can get to Sandown for an Evening meeting that breaks new ground with ITV4 televising live. ITV have been an absolute breath of fresh air to terrestrial TV Racing; getting rid of the geeks and anoraks on the Presenting Team; whilst bringing in knowledge backed by a personality and some great new innovations. There is also Fl... [Read More]

Wednesday 23rd MayPublished: 23/05/2018

Good MorningIt looks like we may get some bursts of thundery rain over the weekend in some places and on the evidence of yesterday's racing it is very welcome.When the Going does get firm a lot of horses "wont let themselves down" by which we mean that they come to make an effort on the bridle and when they try to kick on feel the pain through their legs of the firmer surface and like a human would ease off a bit. I'd liken it to a human getting "shin splints". The other aspect of firmer Going; ... [Read More]

Tuesday 22nd MayPublished: 22/05/2018

Good MorningWe had a couple of very nice placed runners yesterday from the 1 tip and 3 mentioned with Relight My Fire placed at 16/1 and in with a shoutright to the end of a race which all saw the tip Mywayistheonlyway beaten on the nod for a place on the line. The meeting at Leicester saw Railport Dolly place at 14/1 (as advised) having been readily available at 20/1 until a few minutes before the off. The only disappointment was Fastalong, but anyone who had a dabble at the Tricast a... [Read More]

Monday 21st MayPublished: 21/05/2018

Good MorningWe found a nice 9/1 mention winner yesterday with DAPPER MAN winning on the nod (didn't take long to get one back for a tight nod loss on Saturday);from just the 3 mentions on a quiet day, which ensured some nice net profit on the day and that is all we can hope for, small positive steps to profit.There is Flat Racing today at Carlisle; Leicester; Redcar and Windsor and NH at Towcester, it really is moderate fare all round. We don't see anything2 year old jumping out at us yet, a num... [Read More]

Sunday 20th MayPublished: 20/05/2018

Good MorningWe had a much better day yesterday across both services, and but for a little bit of lady luck it could have been an exceptional day.The Elite Service has been in great form since Michael stepped in to the hot seat and delivered a winner in YALTA backed in from 11/2 to 3/1to win at Newmarket. At Newbury, LIGHTNING SPEAR advised at 20/1 was desperately unlucky to lose on the nod at 16/1, a great piece ofanalysis by Michael to spot the record of the horse fresh and at Newbury and altho...

FREE GOLF TIPS from Kevin Withey - one of an outstanding crop of mentored TipstersPublished: 18/05/2018

Good Morning g- Day 2 Betting/Laying Update (10.00am)Good morningI’m sure you will have seen that Marc Leishman shot a stunning round of 61 yesterday including 2 Eagles to lead by three after round one.I have this morning layed him for half a point at 3.35 (Backed at 27.0) so he is effectively a free bet. If he wins we still win a decent payout and if he doesn’t we lose nothing on him.The conditions seem to be suiting early or late starters, he was late yesterday but is early today. ... [Read More]
