We’re off to the races and we don’t plan on losing all of our cash to those pesky bookmakers! We’ve formulated a plan that will have us leaving the St Leger Gentlemen’s Day at Doncaster Racecourse with more money than we arrived with… maybe.
It’s only just over a month since my last visit to Doncaster Racecourse and I did, to my surprise, actually leave with more money in my pocket than I arrived with. You might remember the day, I went on my own!
This time, there’s two of us! Two heads are better than one so surely that means there’s even more of a chance, twice the chance actually, that we will win even bigger. In reality it means we will spend twice as much and lose twice much but there’s only room for positivity and blind optimism here!
Our plan is very much the same as every time we place a bet on the horses.
- Is there a name that means something or stands out to us
- Which colour jockey’s outfit looks cool
- What number won the last race, that won’t win again
- We’re only betting £2 so can’t go for the favourite, it’s pointless
- If still undecided using the above methods, go for one about 7/1 – 12/1 they always seems to win don’t they?
You’re laughing for one of two reasons. Either you use these methods exactly, or you were expecting some actual knowledge and process behind how to win money at the races.
WAIT, there’s more. Firstly I’m going to drop in a link to the Doncaster Racecard for Gentlemen’s Day, Friday 14th September. Secondly I want to shout-out Lakeside Village Shopping Outlet for sponsoring my outfit for the day (SEE VIDEO BELOW).
Thirdly, hats off to the Doncaster Racecourse for continually putting on some awesome events, it must be our fifth time visiting the racecourse in the last few months, including Family Fun Days, Father’s Day and other events.
But for you reading, here’s my TIPS based on all of my racing knowledge, of which can be written on a post-it note, and using the method explained above.
*Any odds mentioned are at the time of writing this post, Thursday 13th September from Racing Post.*
Dancing Star – Because the trainer is Andrew Balding and Corben lately has been playing a character driving us mad called Baldy. It’s also 4/1, not the favourite but has a chance.
Well Done Fox – The jockey’s kit is Blue and White and we support Everton. 10/1 wouldn’t be a bad winner would it!
TheGlasgowWarrior – There’s not always races with 13+ horses in so when there is we always back No.13, it’s our favourite number.
Max Dynamite – Well, because, that name! Imagine your name being Max Dynamite!
Loch Ness Monster – Another chosen purely on name. There’s not even odds available for this race yet so go with what you know, I know the Loch Ness Monster… Not literally.
James Park Woods – Another one without odds available but either way, my brothers name is James Parks, so there’s only one sensible option in this race. It’s an obvious winner.
Normandy Barriere – This one ticks two boxes. I once bet on a horse called Normandy and it won, also its number 6 and that’s my other favourite number, before Donetta and the number 13 came along and changed it all.
Unwritten – Another obvious winner, I mean it relates to writing and we’re bloggers.
SHOW ME THE MONEY!
I’d love it if you could share this post around to all of your friends that are at the races tomorrow or even those that like a sensible little flutter online, just don’t share it with the bookies or they might not let me place bets tomorrow! I may have to turn up in disguise, although it’s not like they’d notice me, I’ve not even shared 27 times online what I’m wearing… Oh wait.
Thanks for reading
