There are many reasons for a successful yard and one of the most important is the staff. They are not as richly rewarded as we would like and we are always likely to lose key trained lads and lasses when they have just married. Quite rightly they want a home of their own together, but cannot afford to rent anything suitable.’

Last year Steve had seven Private bets during the Cheltenham week, producing three winners at 9/4, 3/1 and 9/2 plus the only each way bet finished 2nd at 8/1. An overall profit on stakes from all bets of 125%.

The Exchange bets made a small profit during the period with the highlight being a 5/1 winner.

The services explained:

Private Service: Steve’s traditional bookmaker style bets. No odds-on.

Exchange Service: Steve’s work on the betting exchanges covering two against the field betting, laying short priced favourites etc.

Underlying figures for last year on both services:

  • Total of 115 points profit
  • Average of 5 bets a week
  • Average stake per bet 1.4 units
  • 92% of private bets are win only
  • 67% of exchange lays profitable.
    With the lays we concentrate on short priced favourites.

Overall the services recorded a 30% profit on stakes and a 43% strike rate in 2017.

All bets proofed to Racing Post
