BlackBook - Sunday, 30 January 2022

Please see below for our #BlackBook runner comments for Sunday, 30 January 2022. The runner's highlighted are our #BlackBook runners (the key runners of focus), while those included in the 'other' section of each race are additional runner's that have jumped out well enough to be worth noting. Our figures and benchmark ratings are from PuntingForm.


DONALD - Race 1

OTHER

#16 HALCYON EAST kicked away late to win Heat 9 on Jan 4 after leading throughout, recording a very slick 59.25s for the 1000m which was the fastest time of the morning. His first jump out back this preparation was iffy, so not completely convinced he’s travelling well enough to win first up but certainly one to keep in mind.

 
OUR THOUGHTS

Sale's meeting was abandoned due to the wet conditions.


This week there was no racing Monday and two abandoned meetings, along with Heavy conditions on Friday and Saturday, so it's been a very quiet week. Expecting a few more runners over the next few weeks as the good horses get back into it before the Autumn.


OUR BETS

As a rule of thumb, our new 'units' system will be based on the following staking plan:

  • 0.25 units is a speculation ('spec') bet at a bigger price.

  • 0.50 units to 1.00 units is a low confidence bet.

  • 1.00 units to 2.00 units is a medium confidence bet.

  • 2.00 units to 3.00 units is a high confidence bet.

  • 5.00 units is the maximum bet and is a 'special', or a very high confidence bet.

In addition, we'll put more of an emphasis on our highlighted runners (medium to high confidence bets) and lower bets on our 'Other' runners (low confidence). This is because the highlighted runners are striking at much more favourable 31% WIN & 62% PLC since August 2020 for 600+ runners.


We recommend you have a TAB, TopSport (click here), Bet365 and Betfair account.


No plays. Total outlay is 0.00 units.


Overall (since 21 Oct, 2021): +22.39 units at Recommend Price | +59.57 units at Betfair SP
