Went to Sandpown Park yesterday for racing followed by George Ezra.
We missed the first race and I had second in the second (bet on the nose), but won the last 4 for a tidy profit even factoring Mrs B's inability to pick a winner  ;D
George was Ok as well

Fine start at the weekend to the new season in the EPL.

Enhanced 8/1 Power Price treble on Chelsea, Watford & Bournemouth - usual £20 max stake.

One of them every week would be ideal...  :P

Good work Stuart..
Last weekend's was looking good too at half time with Everton, Spurs & West Ham all leading in a 5/1 treble.
Bournemouth put paid to The Hammers in the second half though...  ::)

A pickup from two players at last week’s Nordea Masters in Gothenburg;  66/1 shot Lucas Herbert (watch this guy, ladies and gents) finished 5th for an each-way payout, and Johan Carlsson obligingly finished 13th to land a top 20 finish at 10/1.  So quite a pleasing £50-plus profit in the end. 😊

At the Czech Masters this week I have Herbert again, Lee Slattery and Haydn Porteous; all promisingly placed after the first round.

Slattery (45/1) finished tied 4th for another profitable weekend. :)

Nice one Matt!


Yesterday, had a fiver on Barnet, Leyton Orient, Salford City, York and Spennymoor Town; returned £65.81. That'll do nicely!

£17.25 return from Simon Yates at the Vuelta from a £3 each way stake... :)
I had Kruijswijk as well, but he slipped to 4th in the standings on the last competitive stage... :-\

Finished tied-second in Portugal this weekend just gone after leading for much of it.  I hadn't placed a bet on him, instead picking Eddie Pepperell (pun intended) - who Herbert finished tied second with, for a modest profit...  :)

Pepperell on an impressive run. Very unlucky to not get a captain's pick for the Ryder cup.
Garcia under huge pressure to justify his spot

Aye, Pepperell has a lovely swing and hits greens for fun (1st for GIR in Portugal last week).  Apparently a nice lad as well, from what my colleagues tell me. :)


Garcia played nicely last week, albeit not as nice as Tiger did, obviously. What a comeback! :o

Yet another return from Lucas Hebert last weekend after he finished 3rd at the British Masters - 60/1 pre-tournament had to be taken.

I also had bang-in-form Tom Lewis at 50/1 who sneaked into the last each-way spot, so a nicely profitable weekend all told. :)

Neither are at the Andalucia Masters in Valderrama this week - Sergio is the obvious choice but I'll ignore him at 4/1, so I've gone for a couple of much longer shots who look over-priced to me: Ashley Chesters ourtight e/w (7 places) at 70/1 and top Englishman at 16/1, and Peter Hanson e/w 125/1...

Been doing pretty well on the golf punting recently, with 5 returns out of the last 7 weeks.  Ashley Chesters obliged with an e/w return at Valderrama, and at the Turkish Open I had three picks including Justin Rose and Haotong Li who ended up in a play-off!  I couldn’t lose, but had Li prevailed rather than Rose I’d have won three times as much.

So to the 2018 season finale in Dubai; just the one bet for me, Tommy Fleetwood e/w at 15/1 (boosted) with Ladbrokes. :)

Pretty lean period recently ended by using a £15.00 free bet on the evergreen Bernhard Langer at Boca Raton on the US Seniors Tour - the clear favourite at about 4/1, in good form, second at the same event last year and he lives 10 minutes away; he duly won by 5 shots.  Just too easy that one... :)
