    I take times must be getting hard for Dave writing a book and now returning to tipping which even he admits to be rubbish at as single horses are not his style of betting. Mind you I never understood how he ever made it pay from his column he mostly backed almost every horse in a race plus multiple cock ups. Amusing reading though

    strange to see his tipster service back in action alright.

    In his book, Nevison made a point (on several occasions) of ridiculing his time as a tipster for one of the big tipping lines.

    Maybe he’s going into one of those bad patches he gets from time to time and needed the cash.

    d.

    I’ve never understood how Nevison makes it pay either he must use a fortune on staking. Some return is going to be guaranteed but in the long run I don’t know how he copes with the sheer workload that must go into working out his finances never mind anything else.

    From memory, as I read his book a while ago, I do believe he refers to a colleague who seems to do the mathematics for his plethora of bets. In fact he sounds like the brains of the operation.

    Flash, where’s your cap. I assume it got blown off on that infamous Wednesday of Cheltenham week? That’s of course if you were brave enough to go out!!

    Flash,

    Sorry to tell you young man that even if the Baggies get to the final, you will be walloped by the Bluebirds, and the cup will again leave England.

    Nevison bases all his betting activity on the tissues he produces before each day’s racing. He doesn’t keep a record of his bets, nor, if you believe his book, does he keep records of his finances. His partner looks for the best prices.

    The Baggies will do the promotion/FA Cup double this year, precisely seventy-seven years since they last did it. At least I hope they do, if only for the anguish it will cause in the custard-coloured part of the West Midlands.

    If you believe his column in The RFO, Nevison loses every week: he’s always either made a mistake in-running, laid a horse after thinking it looked bad in the paddock and then it’s won easily, backed a horse which has lost in exceptionally unfortunate circumstances, or done something else comically inept.

    One of the problems of Nevison’s book was not of the book itself but rather what it revealed about his column: just how lightweight it is. When was the last time that he mentioned having a match bet or spread bet in his column? I can’t remember him ever doing so; yet his book is full of them.

    I think that in the same way he needs to simplify his opinion about a race for TV, his column just gives the readers what they want (the tales of woe) while his wins (which are probably based on complicated formulas which compare his tissue to the available prices) are not mentioned because they would be dull; and nobody wants to read about someone winning anyway. I think he’s shrewder and more successful than his column suggests (in the longterm certainly).

    The tipping line is probably just capitalising on the relative fame which the book has brought.
