Mark Your Card start the party with 40/1 Dancer


Mark Your Card start the party with 40/1 Dancer

Last August, Isiris’ Mark Your Card service registered a 199.8 point profit. Since then this service has continued to thrive, posting consistently high profits (184.1 points in November 2014, 152.5 points in December 2014, 172.2 points in January, 195.8 points in May and 187.8 points in July). As I said last month, the 2015 Besttipping challenge is already in the bag, and this was before another outstanding effort in October. The yield was 199.2, just shy of last August’s record figure, but incredible all the same.

            Second, this month, with an excellent 48.5 point return, came Steve Jones Daily Bargain, with Personal Info, Isiris and Those2oppose in hot pursuit. First Favourite maintained their 100% record for 2015 with a tenth profitable month out of ten, while Steve Jones’ Probets, James Boyle and Richard Dunwoody all finished the month in the black.

            October’s Mark Your Card harvest was headed by the success of 40/1 advice Prisgnov Dancer (Nottingham, 14 October). It also featured four winning 16/1 advices, Cricklewood Green (Ascot, 2 October), Champagne Bob (Salisbury, 12 October), Scrutiny (Redcar, 16 October) and Rufford (Windsor, 19 October). Two winners returned SP’s of 14/1, three were sent off at 12/1, four at 11/1, three at 10/1 and six at 8s. Much to the bookies chagrin, barely a day passed without a winner or two of note. On 16 October, for example, Scutiny’s success was augmented by the victory of 12/1 Bush Beauty at Wolverhampton, while the figures for 23 October were given substance by winners at 12/1 and 11/1.

            Mark Your Card finished last year with an overall tally of 804.7 points and given the evidence of the past few months it is entirely feasible that come 31 December, that record will be shattered.

            Steve Jones’ Daily Bargain, winner of the challenge in 2012, and second and fourth in the last two years, is again enjoying a successful year. This month’s return of 48.5 points was the best monthly tally of the year. It came about thanks to a robust 32% strike-rate and winners of the calibre of 14/1 El Fenix (Wolverhampton, 31 October), 12/1 Royal Altitude (Chelmsford City 22 October), 10/1 Mr Bossy Boots (Kempton, 21 October) and 8/1 Voyageofdiscovery (Kempton, 7 October).

            Personal Info made it nine profitable months out of ten with another strong showing resulting in 11successes from just 21 selections (52% strike-rate). Winners included 6/1 Opt Out (Musselburgh, 13 October) and 5/1 Nessita (Kempton 6 October) along with 100/30, 11/4, 9/4 and 5/2 strikes.

            Isiris main account service also thrived in October. The month ended in spectacular fashion with 8/1 Masterplan (Ascot), 13/2 Kilcooley (Wetherby) and 4/1 Cue Card (Wetherby) all triumphing on 31 October (the last day of the five-week period under review).

            That this review period spanned the end of September as well as the whole of October assisted First Favourite, as this service sought a tenth successive profit.  Despite maintaining a 50% strike-rate throughout October, it was the 29 September success of Francis Of Assisi at Southwell than ensured this ultra-consistent performer kept its 100% record for 2015. To reach November without one losing month is a remarkable, and I believe, an unprecedented achievement.

            Probets, Steve Jones second service, posted a profit with a 33% strike-rate with two 4/1 successes among the winning haul. James Boyle was again amongst the winners with two 6/1 strikes, Buckstay (Ascot, 3 October) and Mr Bossy Boots (Kempton, 21 October) leading the way. It was a similar story for Richard Dunwoody with 11/4 Nottingham winner, Architecture one of four winners from just 11 selections. There were each-way returns on two further selections which all added up to a profitable month.

            Those2oppose also enjoyed a profitable month with the Breeders’ Cup victory of Tepin – an 11/1 advice - the highlight of a seventh month of profit this year.
