    With a little time on my hands this morning I have reflected on David Duncan’s Best of the Press system.

    I have tried it before and have never made it work but have always liked the concept of checking a newspaper tipsters selection against known winning form figures.

    With a little tweak here and there along with Templegate/Tom Pepper of the Sun I have found two which may do the trick.

    Stratford 3.40 TUSKAR ROCK (411) 11/4 Lost[/color:2588je1m]
    and


    Taunton 4.50 WHIZZAR (221) 1/1
    Great finish but came 2nd[/color:2588je1m]
    With a £1 on each and a £1 on the double I will not get rich but I will not go broke either.

    Although I am not going to be able to post selections every day I will do so when it is possible

    Following on from a low key start the week turned out quite well with the highlight of a 30/1 double and a third selection on the day finishing in 2nd place which would have been really quite nice.

    PENSNETT BAY 5.00 Uttoxeter has form figs. of 711 and so I am not clear if this qualifies as 011 and as such is a selection or not but at 5/1 is tempting.

    Sunday: –

    SUSTAINABILITY 4.30 Carlisle is a clear choice.

    It would have to remain in the building society for heck of a while to get 100% interest.

    A quick check for today (Monday) before hitting the road back to The Essex Badlands.

    SOD’s or MURPHY’s LAW always causes me a problem.

    Today’s only pick is THE ABSENT MARE running in the 5.20 at Kempton and with 100/30 available looks to be a reasonable bet.


    However I have already posted Blue Cossack in the same race via The Silly & Daft thread, maybe they will finish 1st and 2nd, funnier things have happend.
