The reality is you don't consistently pick winners anyway, Wonks. Value or no value.

If I had a euro for every time you 'highlight a fine stamp of a horse who will come on for the run'....who does nothing of the sort...well....

The above two posts for me, sum up everything that is wrong about this forum.

Unlike you, Wonks, DJ keeps a running tally of his recommendations on here.  Even after his two most recent losses its probably something like 13/18.  Niether you, nor Dickie (or me) have ever got anywhere near that strike rate.  And they are not all odds on, as you imply.

And yet you have the audacity to have a go at him?  He doesn't have his tongue up other peoples ar$es on here and isn't afraid to call a spade a spade.

Amazing that a guy who shouts the odds about Value could possibly be so gullible regarding said Value ....A bookmaker once told me , the surest way to the poor house is backing odds on shots ....I'm sure his THEORY is real though Richters ....Laugh

15 winners out of last 22 tips.

Over 23 points profit over the last 9 weeks.

If a 1/10 shot is priced at 9/10 does that not represent value?  Of course it does.

Fact is, he displays a profit and a consistent strike rate.  You don't.

I get on well with PA,I have always acknowledged his knowledge of racing.
As for saying he's the greatest,imo this is childish(I'm sure he'd agree).
You seem to think you're the chairman of this forum as your annual awards and so would suggest.

I don't think for a second I am better than anyone and only spoke of selections when I was provoked into doing it.

As for you saying I have a one dimensional view of betting,that's far off the mark and I am constantly changing my strategy.(you have to at the moment)
Anyone just betting/laying on here is not using the available tools to their best disposal.

I find it strange that you feel your view on betting markets has some credibilty on here when you laid your entire bank on one race.

Thanks Tolimi.

Why would you find that strange,I have done it plenty of times.

There are different ways of gambling,some are reckless some are conservative both could go all in if they felt it merited it.

Ozymandius you are not comparing like with like and somehow you have contacted Rocketfingers low attention span.

One thing we know for certain that despite the sneering of DJ876 and Ozymandius and his crew Workrider is successful,goes racing regularly here and across the water,I think its this apparent idyllic lifestyle that has ye driven to distraction.

The horse he is alluding to is Dawn Approach,I thought he was a precocious two year old that wouldn't train on,I also thought he was temperamental and didnt like him in the Dewhurst,I got it wrong and correctly paid the price but then that's the nature of gambling.

Your compassionate sensitivity renders you unsuitable for punting,take up another hobby saving whales perhaps.

Your cowardly nature was first illustrated by your waiting for numbers before launching today's attack,it was shown again by a pathetic attempt to drag Pa Lapsy into your fight and done again by trying to threaten vicariously.

I let a lot of your stupid assertions on gambling go because I felt your posts had merit.

Here are some of your misapprehensions,most bookies pay the premium charge,none do
                                                                 backing a second favourite is the same as laying the favourite.
                                                                 trading out is somehow the road to riches.
The only people that trade out are the ones like Ozymandius who slavishly follow others and have no opinion,if you fancy a horse to win why would you trade,this trading out is for people who want risk free gambling which is why people as sensitive as DJ 876 should not be let gamble.
