Confidence - Comments

Bendigo, Race 5

#9 SHOVE OVER (9) - J Moloney


His latest jump out was absolutely super and a BM64 first up over 1100m is a nice kick off point. He's got some nice form from last prep including a 2nd to Rock Artist, a 4th to Daytona Bay, Jimmy The Bear and Umgawa at Flemington as well as a 4th to El Rocko, albeit over slightly further than this.

Think he can run a nice race and at the ~$5 available this morning, happy to have a bet.


Bendigo, Race 1

#1 CELUI (1) - B Stanley

#6 HELLARA (2) - D Moor

BlackBook jump out comments:

Was surprised when CELUI was scratched from the Merson Cooper Stakes at Caulfield after Brett Stanley made a lot of big comments about this colt in an article with He said that he was better than Sweet Sherry, who was a filly he had that ran 6th in the Blue Diamond behind Extreme Choice and 7th in the Golden Slipper behind Capitalist. He paid $200k for this Toronado colt and he’s now won 4/4 at the jump outs, the latest in Heat 7 on Dec 6 over the 800m where he was just too good in the end.

BlackBook jump out comments:

HELLARA was the pick of Heat 4 on Dec 2, just cruising to and through the line on the inside and doing her best work past the line. She did similar in her previous jump out on Nov 18 and looks a nice moving 2yo filly.

No bet recommended.

We know that everyone takes a different approach to their staking, which is why we don't delve into specific staking for each of our runners and we leave how you stake and bet our runners completely up to the individual.

Personally, we have followed different staking systems over the years to fine tune our own punting, but have found that the most profitable approach is to follow a "Collect system".

This system means that the punter (us) bets on the win only (no place bet) to collect 4% of our bank on every BlackBook runner we have. To begin, you need to select a starting bank - as an example, a starting bank of $10,000 will see us betting to collect $400 (4%) on each runner.

If a runner is $2, we will bet $200 @2 to collect $400.

If a runner is $20, we will bet $20 @20 to collect $400.

If a runner is $3.50, we will bet ~$114 @3.50 to collect ~$400.
