#1 - Petition For More Honourable Bookmakers

I noted this Houses of Parliament petition the other day
that is seeking more honourable behaviour from our
bookmaker friends.

Most of them work on the principle of
discrimination against individuals like you.
Show any sign of winning and they will
limit stakes on your individual account but
treat others very differently.

Picture going into a supermarket
to buy a loaf of bread but getting told at the till
that you personally because you are you are only
permitted to buy one slice.
The bloke in the queue after you they sell the whole loaf to.

Pure persecution and discrimination against individuals.

Even if they are not persecuting you today
they may want to in future.

I would not be in 100% agreement with the precise
wording of this petition. If setting it up myself
I may have phrased it around bookies accepting
a minimum liability as opposed to a minimum stake.

In New South Wales in Australia for example
bookmakers are indeed forced to accept
decent bets of 2500 Aussie dollars if memory serves me right
after punters there said bookie past behaviour was "not fair dinkum".
It was most of the uk brands who are also over there that got the most criticism.
The racing authorities there introduced rules to reduce individual
punter perpetuation behaviour.

But despite me not agreeing 100% with the exact wording of this one
I have signed it anyhow. At his stage it is more so about
raising awareness of the general issue in the Houses of Parliament.

It will take you a mere 30 seconds or so to complete.
Who knows in a years time you may be able to claim
that you yourself helped change the world for the better
for many punting years to come.

The Aussies didn't want a shafting so stood up for themselves and won.
What are you Uk and Irish punters going to do?
Lube yourself up, bend over and touch your toes singing Dancing Queen
or do you have it in you to put up a bit more resistance than that?

[No offence intended to those of you who may find that
an attratctive idea ]

Here is the link again.

Use your own vote then pass on the link
to any punter friends or webmasters you may be in contact with.

#2 - Last Saturday

Another good day for Guy's official tips
with Western Sunrise who was available
at 8/1 each way did the business.

By chance it appears he got in ahead of a bit of a gamble
as the horse was heavily backed down later to 7/2 SP

Another notch up for the longer term profit chart however.

#3 - Lincoln Stats

Guy provided full members today with some advance stat
research work into Saturday's Lincoln Handicap.
I have copied these below for you in case you are a
DIY horse picker who has an interest in the race.

Reading between the lines of Guy's full member comments today
I do not think this 22 runner cavalry charge of no recent flat form horses
is going to attract serious attention from him in his Saturday message.
He did say he may use the stats below to shortlist a few however
for those with an interest.

Any official bet on Saturday will very likely be in a different race.
