"When I was working out my own bets, I had tended to concentrate on the televised (BBC & Channel 4) races, as although I have satellite, and a 6/1 winner pays the same at Southwell as it does at Royal Ascot, it just doesn’t seem the same. It’ s hard to explain why. There is the just extra kudos in solving competitive handicaps when you know everyone is trying, and the prize money is worth winning.
The trouble was, until I came across The Judge, I was never successful in the long term. I tried form study myself, and I had spells following Pricewise, Timeform, Raceform, Superform, and even Henry Rix back in his “Today” period….I’ve was never in profit like I have been over the past three years. Fair dues, I would have a good run following those guys for a while, and The Judge has lean spells, but for long term profit, the Judge has been the man...by a distance.
Since joining the Inner Circle I have also learnt far more about banks and staking that I had picked up in about forty years previously, and I must give an honourable mention to Andy at this point. And although I tend to be one of the less vocal members I also enjoy being part of an exclusive club.
I particularly like the thought processes that goes behind the selections, and best of all are the big meetings, and of course the Cheltenham Festival, when there is a document that grows and evolves over time. Its often very interesting to go back and reread after the races.
I am not a big stakes punter, but my stakes have gradually increased over the past three years. So much so that I was able to withdraw some of my winnings to buy a car for my daughters. Ok it was a second hand Peugeot, but they are really pleased with it. Something like that would have been unthinkable a few years back.
I am grateful to The Judge and his Snip method and in thinking of a way to sum it up I would say, it transforms my small stakes in to far bigger winnings.
It’s almost Alchemy!!"
