Big day at Ayr

The 337th edition of the Wayward Lad blog.

This week it's been hard work finding something of interest to have a wager on, then today we have the usual Saturday glut of good racing all round the country. As such, it's damn hard filtering through the racing finding worthy wagers.

It's at time like these that you have to resort to tried & trusted filtering methods to avoid making meaningless wagers on events you have not studied properly. For instance, I don't go near sprint races (those less than 7-furlongs) which have more than 10 runners. So, for me, much of today's Ayr meeting is out-of-bounds. That said, if you want an opinion of these races, take a look at the Sprinterstogo blog (link is adjacent).

I've made a couple of selections today and they are already posted on Betting League. Current odds of these selections is 8/1 and 10/1 and I reckon they should both be half those odds at least, and so they represent value wagers.

Thanks for reading this blog to all new visitors.

The blog takes a lot of effort to maintain and I hope that readers of the blog get enjoyment from it too. Feel free to tell those who you think may find the blog of interest and value and, if you are a regular visitor, please add the blog to your list of favourites.

Betting on horseracing should be a pleasurable experience – never bet more than you can afford to lose.

Thanks from Wayward Lad


  1. Good luck with your value wagers WL.


  2. Cheers Jake, just 2 selections and one was Qushchi who won at an SP of 5/1, but I advised at 8/1 this morning. The other selection was beaten. However, from my Notebook XILERATOR won at 12/1.
    Not a bad day at the office is I say so myself.
