The US Open ladies' singles event proved to be a betting bonanza. Twitter followers were advised outright bets on
four players: Svitolina, Keys, Stephens and Makarova. Keys was taken @ 25/1 ew and Stephens @ 66/1 ew. In
fact those followers with Sportingbet accounts were advised to take the 100/1 ew Stephens.

Welcome to my website where you will find articles (the majority of which have been published in the London Racing Club magazine) about trips to Irish horse race meetings over the last 20 years as well as betting exploits there and at other tracks. There is also some information on Ludlow, photographs from university days in the late '60s as well as a few photos from my travels in Europe. I operated a free advisory betting service for six years commencing Dec 2009. Complete annual results can be found here:20152014201320122011 and 2009/10. Betting advice closed on 1st November 2015. The blog achieved 1,622 points profit (21.5% ROI) from December 2009 (max bet was 20 points, average bet<5 points). Bets which were not resolved by 1st November 2015 are displayed here:2016 b/f.

There where the course is,

Delight makes all of the one  mind,

The riders upon the galloping horses,

The crowd that closes in behind
