Just read on Twitter that Murray won with over 50% of the vote. That's a disappointment but it seems I was not the only one to think that he would score under 50%, as "under" was backed from the 6/4 that I took to odds on.
Better news in the w/o Murray market. Three contenders backed here with McCoy, who finished third, the biggest wager. But it was Halfpenny who popped up to take second place at the rewarding odds of 69/1. Only a half-point staked on Halfpenny but therefore a return of 35 points. Total stakes on SPOTY 14 points, profit 21 points.
In the end a good overall result.

I recommend you invest some of your winnings (just £22 in fact) on the "Fisherman's Box", a 6-CD boxed set from the one time Spiddal residents, The Waterboys. Massive value with 121 tracks in total. Available here:

Incidentally Ladbrokes have now come into line with their each-way offering. Needless to say they are no longer best price on all teams.
Draw takes place at 16:00 GMT today. Ladcrooks have just advertised best price on all teams. If you are betting each-way though don't be caught out by their offer. They are betting 1/3 odds to reach the final whereas every other company offers 1/2 odds for the place terms.
Typical of Ladcrooks, trying to catch punters out with what appears to be a good offer but is clearly nothing of the sort for each-way players.

This has proved very successful to such an extent that some of my betting accounts have been closed or severely restricted as a result. The blog is showing an accumulative profit of over 20% (ROI) after four years. (Currently over 30% for 2013).
I started the blog partly in order to prove to a number of doubters, in a public way, that it is possible to make significant profits from betting. After four years I consider that objective well and truly achieved. Unfortunately it has led to my personal betting options being restricted further. Successful betting relies on achieving the best - or near best prices - in the "village". Once these are no longer available to you the task becomes progressively harder - not impossible with a starting point of a 120% success rate - just very difficult indeed.
Therefore I will not be offering a daily horse racing service in 2014 - as I did in 2013 and before. I will post occasionally if I have a firm opinion on a feature event and I have obtained the bet I require with one of my (few) remaining accounts. However I will continue with the policy of only posting bets at prices I have been able to obtain myself (as has been the case since the blog started.)
Finally, I wish all the punters who have followed me - and hopefully profited from my betting exploits - all the best with future betting. Keep finding the value!!
