Just wondering if anyone has any info as to how the last three years or so have gone for him.

Can't seem to find much from 2012 onward on internet, apart from a bankruptcy notice!

https://www.thegazette.co.uk/notice/L-60521-1833505

Anyone shed any light?

Definitely one of the games more colourful characters and I just hope that he's not hit bad times.

What's Willoughby's book going to be about? Is it going to be a purely how to win at racing type thing? I'm interested in his take on the market and how odds are affected by what the public know and what they don't ie insider knowledge. I thought I read on here somewhere that he struggles to make it pay because of this.

Prison was part of his life, he is allowing the reader to see that he got by and continued to punt willy nilly, its his life, his addiction. Prison wasn't going to stop him having a punt. At Weddings or Funerals he'll still be on the machine and have flashscore alerting him,with his longish hair he can easily hide an earpiece. Wouldn't mind meeting Claude again, good snooker player and very
useful badminton player back in the day, used to give me 13 points and I couldn't get it done. I suppose his point is that everybody knew he'd been parked up in the garage so he revealed the how and why.Its part of him, his story isn't a fairytale although there are similarities of a Cinderella existence.

Report McCoy Carp September 26, 2017 11:26 AM BST
Findlay lets rip with an amusing rant against cash-outs and the current betting industry which is too libellous to be repeated here, but he does make a salient point that it is “wrong that, as every winning bet pays Betfair a commission, small players should have to pay 5% while big players only pay 2%. It’s nearly impossible to win over a long period of time if you’re paying 5% rather than 2%. We need a new betting platform.”

Sport can be crooked and gambling is often ruinous. But Findlay now follows a quiet routine. We are interrupted just twice by calls from his best friend. “Glenn [Gill] is the best horse judge I’ve ever met. He tells me what to bet and how much. To have won over [i]£250,000 the last two years
betting on small stakes is amazing.”[/i]

So how is he getting his bets on? Is he winning on the exchange then?

very enjoyable book, would have been better written chronologically imo, think you'd have got more of an idea of his roller coaster journey, was surprised how many things were missed out

great to see him back on tv etc, think he's given 4 tips and 4 winners in that time

when he was asked about enable, every career pundit would have said "i think it will win but its not value", not HF, he says he's backing it, end of, and you know thats a opinion backed up with a big bet

wont please everyone but i certainly hope we see more of him

Watch here again lads. I thought it was a good insight into Denman his greyhounds and general crazy betting!

I really do think Mick Appleby horses are very well handicapped now after being unbelievably out of form. Worth following in the winter months at double figures( but his long drifters rarely win my experience|! ). Plus Dave Evans with his new gallop and facilities, might be worth keeping a eye on too...
