REVIEW D G Tips Review Day 91
Sgt Mick Review
Before moving on with tomorrows tips. I have a monthly review of January below and news on the Scoop 6 which I will be making the selections for tomorrow.
I will be including a full review on the 1st of every month as I like to remain as professional as I can and also give members a few pointers in the direction that we are going.
First up I will be teaming up with JPW Scoop 6 tomorrow where the joint pool is at £80k. All races are from the all weather tomorrow evening and a huge amount of money is up for grabs.

Below is the full review of January followed by tomorrow’s tips:
End of month review:
Another superb month, we came away 34pts in profit. January has been a stumbling block in recent years with losses of -3pts in 2017 and a large -26pts 2016 so it goes to show how much we have improved over the years.
From November through to the end of January there is always this lull in terms of racing quality, but we have made over 100pts throughout the 3months which is a great effort considering the racing that is on offer.
We gave 78 selections which is less than normal but that is too be expected given the time of the year. We hit 19 winners and 18 places.
ROI = 43.59%

Highlights this month included Raz De Maree winning The Welsh National under talented claimer James Bowen, three winners from three races on a random Sunday at Chelmsford alongside some nice Meydan winners.
As always I made a few mistakes, the main one being Milansbar who I am very disappointed I deserted after his Welsh National run.We also had a lull mid-month between the 13th and 18th where nothing seemed to go right and the last Saturday of the month we had a bad day where I shouldn’t have tipped as much as I did. Bad day’s and lulls happen in horse racing, most of the time there is very little you can do about it but the main thing is bouncing back and we did that very well.
Horses worth keeping on side are as follows:
Hors De Combat
I am also going to flag up an apprentice jockey worth following over the next few months. Lewis Edmunds is back on UK shores, he is a fantastic 3lb claimer who will be challenging for the apprentice title this season. For me he is the best apprentice coming up through the ranks and I am expecting big things this season.
I also wanted to let you all know early that I will be taking a back seat with Cheltenham this year. Betting will be limited (1-3 selections per day, if not less/not including AW bets on those days). March has been a major stumbling block for us in recent years and the reason has been Cheltenham. Most of you who have been members for a while will know my stand point on jump racing but for those who are relatively new I keep betting limited over jumps for two reasons.
Firstly there are so many factors involved with jump racing that are completely out of my control, you can research into form all you want but if your horse falls, is hampered by another faller or even doesn’t jump with fluency then I’m afraid your money is done.
Secondly this is an investment, an investment to create profit. The best way to maximise your profit is to invest in the best options available. Jump Racing is one of the poorest options you can choose (my opinion) and therefore does not represent a good investment opportunity.
My main aim going into any month is to make profit, we will make our profit from the AW and anything else we add from the jumps is a bonus. I have made mistakes during this month in the past, there is this pressure to get involved with Cheltenham but I will not be making that mistake this year.
I say every year that the best thing about January is the end of January because from here on in the racing continues to get better and better. This month the AW really heats with qualifiers every week and two big Saturdays at Lingfield on the 3rd and 24th. We also have the Meydan Dubai Carnival gathering speed with a total 6 meetings throughout the month. Before we know it we will be going into March where not only do we have Cheltenham but we also have The AW Finals Day and Dubai World Cup day. The best news of all however is that the flat season starts earlier this year with the Lincoln being run just a week after Cheltenham on the 24th March. We then must wait until mid-April before the flat season really takes off but once we are into May it is non-stop. First week in May we have the Guineas, second week we have the Chester May Festival, 3rd week we have the York Dante Festival and the 4th week we have a Goodwood 3 day festival and The Temple Stakes day at Haydock. First week of June we have the Derby and then two weeks after that is Royal Ascot.
February has been a good month for the last two years so the aim is to make this February another cracker.
Thanks and I hope you all enjoyed January,
Today’s two selections are both still to run later at Kempton so let’s hope for big performances from both.
Tips for Friday 2nd February, 2018
1.30 Lingfield – Mississippi Miss 10-3 widely available
1pt win Non Runner
Mississippi Miss ran a nice race over this C and D last time out. She was held up in last that day and had to come wide to make up ground. She still ran on strongly to finish 2nd and the form isn’t looking too bad with the winner coming out and finishing 4th in higher class of a 5lb higher mark. This smaller field should help her running style with less horses to pass and from stall 5 Hollie Doyle should be able to ride a race to suit.
5.45 Wolverhampton – New Abbey Angel 6-1 widely available
0.5pts E/W Non Runner
New Abbey Angel caught my eye two starts back when narrowly beaten over slightly further at this track. He travelled strongly that day and it was only due to trouble in running that he didn’t win. The horse who beat him that day Iley Boy has won twice since and even the 5thRowlestonerendezu has won easily since. This slight drop back in trip isn’t an issue and left on the same mark as that run two starts back he should run a big race. We can scratch his run last time out as he didn’t stay over 2m’s however back down to this trip and with a good draw he should go very close.
8.15 Wolverhampton – Beatbybeatbybeat 5-1 widely available
0.5pts E/W Fin Unp -£10
Beatbybeatbybeat comes into this in good form and also takes a drop in grade. He ran a nice last time out over this C and D when only beaten 1l in 3rd. That was a hot little race and he had to come wide to challenge so we can mark his performance up a shade. Down in grade and with a nice draw tomorrow he should be much better suited to this bigger field scenario. Hopefully he will be quick away and can get a good position just in behind the pace with lots of cover.
3 selection today but unusually 2 were non runners. Only runner was unplaced resulting in a loss of £10
Starting Bank £100
Current Bank £1526.86
