Reverse your staking and you’ll make more money (advice from a professional)

By on January 5, 2020

No time for the usual pleasantries today.

Following is part 2 of the Q & A with Phil Griffiths AKA Snowy – The NH Specialist.

I found his views on staking to be particularly insightful.

Anyway, here goes:

Q – What style of approach do you take to your betting on a personal level? What do you think of staking plans, loss retrieval systems etc.?
A – These days as I cannot get a bet on due to no bookmakers’ accounts, I rely on others & as that is the case, my stakes are limited. 
When I had every account, my funds were easier to manage & I could pick & choose more easily but now that has changed, I don’t punt in the quantities I once did. 
I don’t really do plans with staking or worry about losses & retrieval. 
My motto is, the bigger the price, the more I try to get on & if my selection is under-priced, I do the opposite. 
Getting on these days though is ridiculously hard & it can get very frustrating indeed watching the value disappear before my eyes. 
It’s all down to the bookmakers for they price up way too early & make some horrendous mistakes, day in, day out. 
Oh, I wish I could still have every account!

Q – What traits do you think a good racing tipster should possess and what do you think the average punter is looking for from a tipping service?
A – Myself. I like to think I am passing on my knowledge & an understanding that I believe I have, to offer some value & not pick the obvious, as some hacks still do. 
If I get time to entertain as well, that’s a little extra but irrelevant really. Generally, the average punter wants a winner at a reasonable, working man’s price.

Q – New and old punters alike can struggle to make a success of their betting. If you could give them just one piece of advice to improve their profitability what would it be?
A – Most punters think the wrong way. The shorter their fancies the more they have on. 
If they bet a big price horse, why are they betting it? 
They fancy it of course but because of the odds, they stake a lower amount. 
Reverse all that process & over time you will have a better chance of a decent profit in the long run. Don’t ever be put off by a price. 
Also, close your ears & open your eyes, for they are by far, your best form guide. 
What your eyes see don’t lie but you can hear too much bull & it could affect your thoughts entirely. Trust your own judgement & don’t be put off by others.

Q – What would you consider to be a highlight of your racing experience to date?
A – My best racing experience is easy. Being a part owner & having a fair bit of luck / success. 
Especially on Friday 13th 2013, when our horse King Massini, won at the home of racing, Cheltenham, albeit in a photo. 
I doubt I will ever top that & it’s a day that will live long in the memory. 
I’ve had some decent punting days winning some useful cash but nothing will come close to leading your horse back into the winners’ enclosure at our mecca. Every owner’s dream in the national hunt game.

Tomorrow will be the third and final part of this Q & A.

Including Phil’s opinion on bookmakers, which he somehow manages to answer without swearing!
