Welcome back to Brooke’s Best Bits. Exceptional week for our horse racing pros, as we saw a weekly ROI of 63.4%. TheScot was at the top of the pile with an ROI of 210%, after landing big bets on Wednesday and Friday. With over 650 bet requests placed, TheScot now has an overall ROI of 10.2%, and is closing in on their first profitable year on the betconnect platform!
The ‘Best Bet of The Week’ comes from one of the top pros on betconnect. From 105 bet requests, Flatstan1979 has a quite incredible ROI of 76.4%. On Friday morning, Flatstan1979 backed Ultra Violet at 16/1 in the 18:10 at Newmarket. Support in the market is always a good sign for a debutant, and Ultra Violet attracted just that. The 2 year old Filly went off at 10/1, and won by an extremely comfortable 8 lengths under Kieran Shoemark. She must have been one of the most impressive winners of the week! I hope you punters were on!
For this week’s extra category, we’ll be looking at the ‘Biggest Drifter’ that went on to win. The bet comes from benraw123, one of the best racing pros on the site. benraw123 backed the Marwan Koukash owned horse, Penwortham, at 12/1 in the 20:05 at Chester. You can never go wrong backing one of Marwan’s horses at Chester, who is well known for having an excellent record at the course. Penwortham drifted out to 16/1 before the off, and sat last coming down the straight. However Tony Hamilton managed to manoeuvre his horse through the pack to win by just under a length. A great result for matched bettors, who would have got 4 points of BOG!
