Karen and I would like to thank you for the messages of condolence. That so many of you took the time to send them means a heck of a lot to us both. Thanks again.
Today is her birthday and whilst it will be more muted than usual we will celebrate as best we can!
Karen followed our Scoop 6 syndicate effort with me on Saturday and whilst we didn’t manage to win it, the eight place lines brought back a dividend of £2412 and that was a small profit that now sits there waiting for members to decide what to do with it. I will be e-mailing all concerned this morning for suggestions.
THE NEW PACKAGES
I have had just two responses to that Newsletter and I will be responding to both in a second Newsletter later today, just in case there are others thinking along the same lines.
If you do have a bee in your bonnet over anything at all, please e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Obviously, if your request involves a detailed response it may take a little while getting back.
It’s a Bank Holiday and a busy one on the racing front so let’s just crack on. I have sent today’s figures out to those members of The Weekend Club who will also have received nothing last weekend. I hope they prove profitable to you.

MY PLAY – I have added a little bit of profiling I produced for this race on Facebook a few days ago. Just to add, our Facebook page has doubled the number of ‘likes” in less than a month and is adding to that daily. Not surprised given what’s been put up on there recently!
This is the best race of the day and from a Ratings point of view it’s got to be rated horses 1, 3 and 4 dutched, a 20/80 my top one and exotics but, what does profiling suggest?
This is what was posted:
DRAW – 11 OF THE LAST 17 WINNERS WERE DRAWN 7 OR LOWER
AGE – 9 AGED 4
MARKET POSITION – 11 OF LAST 17 WINNERS PRICED 6/1 OR SHORTER
OR – 14 OF LAST 17 WINNERS HAD OR OF 87 OR HIGHER
What I’ll now add is that none of those last 17 winners was officially rated higher than 98 and my top rated horse is running off 102.
Ajmany ticks three of those boxes but I’m not sure the draw of nine will cause him to many problems. Add into the mix that Luca Cumani has won two of the last four runnings of this and AJMANY by virtue of rating and profiling simply becomes the “go to” horse for a profit here.
On the negative, it’s his first run on good to soft, and you know how important the going is to me.
Given the position in my Ratings and the suggestion he is the profile horse here, I’ll just have a straight win bet Cumani takes his third in five….I’ll look at the potential to dutch with rated horses 3 and 4.
If it went soft I’d most likely just run with my figures.
