The period from Boxing Day to Valentine's Day is when 95% of all winners at the coming Cheltenham Festival in March will have their final preparatory race. As most winners at the Festival will also have won their latest race, it is imperative that form study starts now. Buy the Weekender of a Wednesday, and make note of the race winners especially those aimed at the Festival. I am not as big an antepost punter as I used to be as trainers are more likely to give their horses multiple entries now that the Festival is over 4 days and with some races overlapping. Even so, you may be able to find an opportunity.
There is no jump racing today and, with the awful wet weather, I am not hopeful of any kind of jump racing in the next few days. So don't squander valuable funds chasing winners on the all-weather, study the form and make preparation.
With the enforced break due to the weather, I've been reviewing my SIPP (see blog Pension Builder) which had a good 2013 - although it was near impossible to have a bad 2013 on the stock market. I'd be glad if any readers to a look at that blog, which I contribute to from time to time, and made a comment or suggestion. Those who enjoy a wager are more likely to seek to have greater control of their own destiny, and control of your pension scheme is vital for your finances.
Many thanks to those who have contributed to my poll regarding a Cheltenham Festival Bulletin, if you have not done so yet there is still time.
All the best from Wayward Lad.
