If he's betting overnight, and/or passing info on, then it's not surprising that the prices don't last.

    Keep it up, I say.
    It will only flourish with a decent strike rate though and so without a P&L I don't know whether he's doing any good or not. That's also why I asked if he's greening up.

    Will be one on here tomorrow providing its not a stupid price,5s will be fair anything bigger should be a great trade,hopefully the books won't open to early at wolves as i think the price will go straight away.Could be wrong,but it stands out on its last run.There may be a few tomorow price dependant.

    After watching the replays two stand out in the same race which look better than their marks,hearts and minds and songbird blues both full of running in their last races and not getting getting runs.Lots of unexposed horses but little form and first runs on the aw these two stand out at the prices.

    1pt trade hearts and minds 13/2 skybet,hills.

    .25pt trade songbird blues 7/1 bet 365

    Not as confident as my usual picks but hopefully there will be some profit either on the trade or ews,the two picks are crew cut(71) and one way or another both runners in the same race.Crew cut won a weak maiden beating eshoog at bath over the 5fs on third run,last time out beaten by maze over the same c/d but became outpaced 2fs out only to pick up again under hands and heels crying out for further.Maze came out again and was second off 83 franking the bath form,also reading the run of crew cuts from the rp it appears he lost a shoe at bath making that run more credible.With only the 5 runs looks open to improvement,handles the track and likes soft ground form looks solid and with a lot of the field exposed and not guaranteed to go on the ground 7s looks overpriced.
    The other pick is same trainer as crew cut jeremy gask and he runs one way or another,down to an all time low of 72 and although only 1/18 on turf has run in far superior races to this and takes another drop in class.The thing that catches the eye is the two runs over 6fs on soft has run third off 90 to kaldoun kingdom and a 5th to rwoody off 86 this time last year beaten 2 1/2ls.He was on the wrong side at donny when running off 79 in may but the jockey was very considerate and although beaten 5 1/2ls was a few lengths better than that.At 16/1 if reproducing just the donny run would figure,the slight negative maybe the race being on a turning track over a trip just shy of 6fs but the 16/1 is to tempting in this weak race with the ? over other runners.

    1pt trade crew cut
    .10ptew 7/1 boyles,victor hills

    .50pt trade one way or another
    .05pt ew 16/1 boyles,ladbrokes

    The stand out runner in the race is frozen over,last time out being 10-12ls off the pace with 4fs to go at epsom and eventually only being beaten 3ls,nearest at finish behind the progressive valencha.
    Only this week i put up flameoftheforest at necastle based on this race thats already won off 75 and finished a nk and half a length infront of frozen over at epsom.As i mentioned that day horses rated in the mid seventies and 80s were behind and without doubt this fella is very well handicapped and i would think will turn out to be higher rated than these at some point.The negative maybe the track,plus there are quite a few c/d specialists in the race even so at 12/1 if it handles the track would go very close.Whatever happens tomorrow i would have this onside for the rest of the season as if unplaced tomorrow will be a big price next time out.

    1pt trade frozen over 12/1 365 price gone 10/1 generally.
    .05ptew

    I think there is an ulterior motive.

    Luke if you're on about asking for money for picks etc,you're way off the mark i'm semi retired i made enough in 8 years not to have another bet ever again.I bet for a living i'm not a tipster!!!
    I will do anything to help anyone with their betting or discuss any race anytime if i'm around,i hate bookies and i also hate seeing people throwing money away on horses that cannot possibly win.Even if its just thowing up a few bets on here now and again its better than nothing,i'd prefer it if someone asked me about some races instead of being so negative and suspicious.
