Thursday's 2YO Multibet

Will detail a few short-priced talents. 

Multi bets
2:20 Salisbury - 

*Beat Le Bon (1/1) is held in high regard Richard Hannon and showed up well on debut when finishing second at 16/1. Holds a number of significant entries. Was considered for the Convivial Maiden Stakes - one of two horses. Didn't run that day. Must run a big race.

3:10 Haydock - 

A tough race. I am interested in seeing how Kadar goes here because he is held in high regard by connections. *West End Charmer (3/1) is a classy-looking colt - big and strong. With only a three pound penalty he should hit the frame and could well win. A race in many ways worthy of watching than betting simply because it looks a little tough. However, for a small each-way treble I will go with this horse. 

3:50 Salisbury - 

Hello Bangkok (11/10) ran well on debut and will be much wiser for that first effort. Not much of a price but must be there about. Andrew Balding holds this horse in high esteem and expected to win. 

Some people laugh at putting short priced horses in an each-treble. If long-term the bets make money they are correct. If all three are placed you don't lose. 

Hello Bangkok 11/10 5th

After two non-runners I laid my bet on the exchanges. 

£5 each-way treble

Wednesday's Multibet

Another post. Shock horror. Nothing horrible about our class information. 

I will detail a few horses with a chance although they are to some extent more speculative than super confident. 

Sometimes you need a bit of luck. 

6:00 Ffos Las - 

Something of a hit and hope here with Blue Battalion, trained by John Gallagher. Not really a trainer associated for debut winners - that may be the case today. This son of Cityscape is priced 25/1 so there is meat on the bone. May well drift out to huge odds. With these type of horses, you find they either win or lose badly. Still, for a small multibet may hold each-way claims at big odds.

Blue Battalion 33/1 Unp

Looked horrendously slow. Either hopeless or injured. Very slow. Snail's pace. 

6:20 Wolverhampton - 

A fascinating if not an equally difficult race to assess. Why? Well, we have a good few horses here with ability if not big reputations. One of them may have a big reputation. East Coast Swing did little on debut but clearly held in some regard by connections. I would draw a line through that debut. A wide draw is far from ideal. It could be the difference between winning and losing, especially if pushed wide on the bend. There is nothing worse than struggling if not getting to the rail. At odds of 40/1, there may be some value although you may need to cross your fingers for some luck in running. 

East Coast Swing 40/1 Unp

The betting told the story. Very strange why this expensive buy holds significant entries and poor. May well show ability at three. 

6:50 Wolverhampton - 

A restricted race type. A couple of these may have more ability than looks. However, I am more interested in Minnelli trained by Philip McBride. This horse was expected to go well last time out but seemed to struggle with the early pace and slightly outpace. She ran on well in the closing stages and this trip will help. At odds of 10/1 looks to hold fair claims. 

Minnelli 10/1 1st 

Thankfully one of them run well. A battling performance to be headed and regain the lead. Enjoyable to watch after a couple of jokers in the pack. 

Each way Patent 7 Bet (3 singles, 3 doubles, 1 treble) 

Over 3,000/1

Monday's Multibet (3rd September)

I haven't had an update on this website in a long time. 

Just don't have many opportunities for a multibet so it kind of makes this website redundant. Perhaps I should say dormant - because there is always the possibility of an eruption of bets. 

Anyway, I have three horses running tomorrow that may have a fair chance of going ok. I don't like to say anything beyond ok as I don't like to tempt fate. 

2:30 Brighton - Keyhaven (40/1)

James Fanshawe's horse was fancied on debut and didn't show much - then disappointed the second start. There is a chance this two-year-old has the ability to go ok. At 20/1 is worth a speculative each-way bet. With these type of horses, they either win or unplaced so time will tell. 

Keyhaven 40/1 4th 

Ran well, touching about 11/4 in-running and odds-on to be placed. Irritating it didn't get placed but can't complain. 

4:55 Windsor -  Venture (9/2)

Clive Cox holds this horse in some regard. Has to take on a favourite who has a decent amount of ability even though the eternal bridesmaid (he is a colt). Venture is considered a fair juvenile who should hit the frame if those assumptions are correct. 

Venture 8/1 6th 

The drift outside 13/2 price guide didn't speak well. I would expect to see this horse do better in the future. 

6:20 Newcastle - Mistress Of Love (10/3)

Karl Burke must have been disappointed to see this $1000,000 filly struggle on debut. The odds-on shot proved something of an embarrassment for Spigott Lodge who must have been expecting a victory and news coverage for a positive start to her career. It didn't happen. Must go much better on the all-weather and I would be surprised it this filly isn't in the first three. 

Mistress Of love 9/2 1st

Big drifter in the market but that's the difference between knowing something and not. Won easily. 

Advised bet - Each-way Patent (7 bets: 3 singles, 3 doubles, 1 treble)

About 500/1 accumulator

Betting in 2018

Yes, the number of bets is low. Nonexistent. It's not me - it's the horses. Sounds like you are waiting for the pun. 

I sometime wish I had called Multibetpro something else. It kind of points me - and you - in the direction of multibets. Not keen on multibets in ways. The main problem being that I don't have enough selections to make a multibet. That could be a problem, hey? Perhaps I should just buy a new domain and call it something... 

I mean a different name which isn't so fixed. It leads you down the garden path to a gooseberry bush.

Never mind. 

You know I can write about any aspect of horse racing. Just give me a word and I will turn it into a sentence, paragraph, chapter, book. Perhaps book from a word is pushing it a little. Although most books come down to one word, meaning, theme... 

Love. Betrayal. Conflict. Hope. Ambition. 


That's the word we need to dissect here. Horse racing. Is that one or two words. My spellchecker doesn't like it as two. 

So what am I to do with this website? Sure there will be days when I have a few selections I rate and feel the need to detail them here. You know we know our stuff when it comes to two-year-old horses racing. We proved that with the limited number of tips given on these posts. 

Perhaps I should just forget about the website name and write whatever comes to mind. It would resolve the problem I have with writer's block. I'm never lost for words but if I don't have a decent bet to give I just can't bring myself to chew the fat. It just doesn't seem ethical. Even gamblers have ethics. Well, I do. I guess most gamblers are viewed as shady, cigar-smoking infidels. The kind of people who would rather take than give. I am far too generous. I guess I must have one of those souls which shines brightly in a darkened room. Who knows. 

I wish this website was called singlebetpro.

Grand National Festival 2018 – Everything you need to know

Grand National Festival 2018
The Grand National is the biggest race in the UK, even more than the Cheltenham and Royal Ascot. This is the World Cup of hunt racing.

Legends like Red Rum, Aldini, Hedgehunter and Party Politics have left their mark. Fans crowd the Aintree Racecourse just outside of Liverpool each year to see a race of 40 runners jumping over some of the toughest obstacles that a race of the kind offers.

Favorites do not always win the Grand National, this is one of those races were selecting the winner is far more complicated. In 2017 One For Arthur snatched victory from major favorites.

Grand National Festival Overview

The Grand National is a National Hunt race, horses jump over 30 fences and pools during 3 laps over a course of 4 miles 514 yards. The race is one of the oldest in the world, it began in 1839 as a tradition between town folk that competed against each other between local landmarks. The racecourse was built over the same path the initial path, old stone walls and wooden fences have been replaced by the standard obstacles. Famous fences include The Chair, Becher’s Brook and the Canal Turn.

Friday's Multibet

A small profit yesterday with a first and two seconds.

Lingfield racing tips
Just watching these as far from confident.  

2:00 Lingfield 

Oregon Gift changed stables after his recent win for Brian Ellison. This gelding is now with Charlie Man and top weight at this lowly level. Seems to have his own ideas when pulling to the front over 1m 4f and hanging on at the line. Not sure if this extra yardage will suit if exuberant. Time will tell.  

Oregon Gift 5/1 3rd

2:35 Lingfield

Archie Watson is a class trainer and Dutch Uncle has finished fourth and second respectively this season. This son of Dutch Art looks to be warming up and must have sound each-way claims. Hope there isn't a non runner as rather have three places than two. 

Dutch Uncle 11/4 2nd 

4:45 Lingfield 

Esspeegee has been progressing nicely from a lowly level and still only rated 61 proving you don't need a high-class horses to have some fun and cover the costs. A number of canny wins have seen this five-year-old bay gelding rise in the official rating of 45. Alan Bailey must be satisfied with his handling of this Irish-bred son of Paco Boy who runs in the ownership of The Skills People Group Ltd. With these multiple winners, they can crash out at some point but there may be another win left in this horse. 

Esspeegee 9/4 2nd

Thursday's Multibet

So we start today with Thursday's Multibet - three random horses which we hope get lucky. 

1:55 Kelso - Sam's Gunner 

Hoping Michael Easterby's five-year-old can at least hit the frame after winning last time out.

7/2 2nd

7:00 Chlemsford - Beautiful Memory

Saeed bin Suroor has a decent filly here and although she needs to defy a win penalty should go round about with future plans being penciled in.

10/11 1st 

8:30 Chelmsford - Be Bold

A desperate-looking handicap. Rebecca Bastiman has a few hopes on the card and this chestnut son of Assertive has claims of hitting the frame. 

Be Bold 5/2 2nd 

£10 each way treble 

+ £10.14 Profit

He Won by Pure, Jammy Luck

Our Winners Are Always Jammy
I know lots of punters hate multi bets... 

However, there are plenty of gamblers who fancy they can win a fortune with a small bet. It might be a remote chance but it can and does happen on a daily basis. 

We've all seen the stories where some lucky bleeder wins a few hundred grand for a bet that cost less than a cup of coffee. Whether they were wise or just jammy they placed their bet and it changed their life for good. 

I guess every punter has that dream. Who is to say it won't be you who tastes the sweet success sooner rather than later. 

Multibetpro is back with a difference. 

We know to win big you need to get lucky. 

We're not going all scientific here. I'm a man with a rabbit's foot tied to a horseshoe. If I had a middle name it would be Lucky.

This website is all about random selections. I know it seems a brainless concept but can pure, random luck beat the experts who think they know best? It seems unlikely, misjudged, haphazard if not a little insane. 

But that's what this website is all about - chancing your luck.

In addition to the multibets, we will detail stories of big winners across the board of gambling: lotto, football, slots, casino, horse racing, greyhounds... Every big winner has a story to tell and we will revisit the stories of those who hit the jackpot. 

Good luck to all.

Friday's Multibet

I will be detailing a few multibets. In general, they go well. Always a fine line between a terrible and great day on these bets but that's the nature of the beast. If we get a few readers, share and people taking an interest it may inspire me to detail more.  

Lucky 15 EW [BOG]

1:50 Ascot         - Snow Squaw   @ 6/1  3rd
5:50 Chepstow      - Rita's Girl  @ 16/1 5th
6:10 Newmarket     - Fire Brigade @ 5/1  Unp
7:00 York          - Used To Be   @ 15/2 3rd

Poor effort in ways. Snow Squaw was irritating not getting a place (2 places). Rita's Girl was heavily backed to 13/2 but didn't do as expected. Fire Brigade had good reason to go well on my info but didn't. Used To Be done well to hang on for a place.

6:10 Chepstow Racing Tips (28th June) BRAINS BEER/EBF NOVICE STAKES (CLASS 5) (2yo)

An EBF Novice Stakes over 6f 16y on soft going. Nine two-year-olds competing at this idiosyncratic racecourse. Seven juveniles have race experience, all colts bar one gelding. The betting suggests this is a three-horse race and a couple of major protagonists have raced against each other over course and distance although on markedly different going. One big hope is Eve Johnson Houghton's Hedging. Place bet on William Hill because this horse has strong claims.  

This Irish-bred son of Mastercraftsman looks a very good yearling purchase at just 8,500G, acquired by the trainer. This grey/roan colt is owned by The Picnic Partnership. Hedging was priced 16/1 on debut, backed from 25/1. He needed the experience on his racecourse debut and after a slow start ran on well in the closing stages under the handling of 5lb apprentice Edward Greatrex. He finished less than one length behind Sterling Silva who has proven a durable two-year-old for Richard Hannon and Middleham Park Racing. The form of that race looks fair. You always have to be careful with horses which finish with verve, to make sure they are not flattered, chasing home tiring horses. It can often be difficult to assess this fact and it should be noted the going that day was said to be good to firm but the time was over four seconds slow. Johnson Houghton has been pretty quiet this season with a small string of two-year-olds hitting the tracks. The stable have a few debut winners but these usually turn out to be talents, while most run well on their second start. Connection have done well another horse readers may have followed. Room Key [pictured] won on debut, which has been his only victory to date but raced at the highest levels, placed at Group class, even contesting group 1. 

Hedging will need to be something special to emulate the successes of Room Key but he has plenty of time to improve on his initial start. He faces his old rival Bazwind, trained by David Evans, who was less than one length behind at Chepstow. He ran at Leicester on his second start where conditions were heavy. I would imagine that going was a little too testing and this course and going will be more suiting. However, I do feel that Hedging holds an edge over this colt. 

Other live contenders include Andrew Balding's Stag Party. The stable do well at this course and interesting to see Edward Greatrex riding as he has done well with the few juveniles he has ridden for Kingsclere. 

One horse that may go well at a price is Richard Hannon's Restore. This Irish-bred son of Dark Angel cost 55,000G at the yearling sales and showed promise on debut in what has turned out to be a hot race. He wasn't suited by dropping back to the minimum trip at Bath and simply run off his feet. With the claim of a 5lb apprentice, he could slip under the radar and at odds of 20/1 may hold some value. 

Conclusion: Hedging looks to have a good chance of winning here although priced 11/8 doesn't give a great deal of value. I would be tempted to have a small each-way bet on Restore at huge odds.

Saturday's Tips From Multibet

Dashing Approach ideally needs to be priced 10/1 & less SP. Marsha has a decent level of ability. Haughmond was well regarded early season but has not lived up to expectation but is lowly weighted for this nursery. Worth a bet in hope of running a race.

Tuesday's Tips From Multi Bet

The favourites are the strength and the two 10/1 shots we may need to get a bit lucky. Can't quite work out Rosie Royce but she may be good enough to hit the frame and beyond that fingers crossed. Mancinello is noted but to be a strong each way chance needs to be backed. It may well be backed and taking 10/1 could be a good move. Hope that happens and all hit the frame at least. 

Mancinello NR

Saturday's Tips From Multi Bet

Manson 7/1 6th
Fang 7/2 6th
Wayward Hoof 12/1 Unp
Above N Beyond 4/1 3rd

Poor results. Think I pushed things too far today. Manson wasn't far from a place. Fang didn't run well and may be better dropped back to 6f. Wayward Hoof was a too keen and didn't finish his race, while Above N Beyond needs 6f.
