The new turf Flat season has rushed upon us and next week it really begins in earnest. I plan to be trackside at as many northern courses as I can get to between now and the end of May, hopefully providing you with an edge.
You can receive pre-race text messages regarding the horses' fitness, greenness and how they move to post, and I'll be looking to provide the final piece in the jigsaw for you whether you are looking to back or lay.
Here is the exact text message I sent to clients prior to the Brocklesby at Doncaster last Saturday; 1 Small, unfurnished. 2 Backward, green. 3 Fit, strong behind. 4 Laid back, nice. 5 Well made, unfurnished. 6 Fair, didn't look fit. 7, 8 9 all looked small.
The result saw the well-backed Ravenhoe (4) beat First Bombardment (4) with General Alexander (2) a running-on third after starting slowly.
Personally, I laid both 2 and 6 in the win market for a fairly straight-forward profit. I don't know how my clients bet the race but I'd like to think my late message gave them a good angle.
If you would like to try this service for yourself I'll be texting messages for free from three meetings next week; Pontefract on Tuesday, Catterick on Wednesday and Newcastle on Saturday. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me on Twitter @justnormnow and I will add your name and mobile number to the list.
My National Hunt clients have enjoyed the information they have been receiving this winter and we are all looking forward to gaining an edge at the start of the Flat.
PS; I'll be too busy to be blogging about the new season but will still be writing about my trips to the remaining few jumps meetings over the next couple of months.
Roll on Haydock tomorrow, I've had a week off and I'm raring to go. Hopefully Central Flame is a decent price as he could be worth a strong bet after a very lenient 4lb rise for his Carlisle win. Until then...
