Today’s Ratings and Advice 21/03/15

Ron RobinsonI made a decision yesterday that I will be working smarter from February next year.

The last eight weeks regarding the website have been absolutely ridiculous and so, once my current hosting arrangements have been completed I’ll be doing away with the website.

Yesterday was effectively the final nail in it’s coffin. We have had so may issues with it recently and I have so much time spent chasing things up that are none racing related it has been crazy.

I got up 4-50am yesterday and finished my Newsletters. Had a spot of breakfast and then, from 9-00am until 6-45pm, did nothing remotely connected to what I do best, finding the winners of horse races.

I have to utilise outside assistance with anything remotely connected to “techy” stuff but yesterday found myself working on nothing but the website, watching Youtube demonstrations  to help me figure out what part of the puzzle went where. I finally got to the stage you see online now and I’ll be tidying it up over the weekend but with five meetings to work on for today and 17 rated races, I got to bed around 12-45 this morning and was up again at 4-50am.

I’ll not be doing that again in a hurry!

If the site has issues again between now and next February, when my current hosting agreement runs out, then I’m afraid it’ll be Newsletters only through which you receive your information. If I could obtain a refund on the annual hosting package I have in place I would take it and run!

Today is simply madness and as I say, five meetings, 17 rated races and the very best advice I can give is, be selective.

MY PLAY – The best race today….now, we’ve all heard of horse for courses, right? If i told you there is a horse in here whose form figures when running at Newbury, in March, were 1, 1, F, 1….you’d want to be on….right?

The name?…hang on, there is more.

The horse has, in my view, been trained with this race in mind all season. She, Pepite Rose, who won this race last year, arrives having been dropped to the same official mark, 145, she won off 12 months back.

Laid out, or what!

I’ll be playing my front three to my usual way of working…what are you going to do?

STRATFORD 2-40

SAINT HELENA….-40
H – SEAS THE MOMENT….-40
ANGINOLA….-40
WARRANT OFFICER….-40
CHERRY TIGER….-40
SYMPHONY OF PEARLS….-40
H – THE RIGHT TIME….-40
JUMEIRAH LIBERTY….-40

MY PLAY – In all the years I have been doing this, I have never seen a race as bad as this. To describe it as a race is sacrilege. Fair enough, it’s a seller but the rules are that the winner…and their will be one….cannot be sold for less than £2,900.

I would rather spend that £2900 on a new iMac and 1200 Toblerone.

If you are considering betting this race then prayers will be made on your behalf.

STRATFORD 3-50

* – URCALIN….+8
* – HARRY HUNT….-2
MAWAQEET….-6
NIGHTLINE….-6
HE’S A BULLY….-11
* – REAL MILAN….-25
OLIVER’S HILL….-29
ATLANTIC GOLD….-33
ALLTHEGEAR NO IDEA….-40
HAZZAAT….-40

MY PLAY – Top three to October Rules.

Have a great day and the best of luck if you get involved.

Kindest regards

Ron
