A day of rest..

.. unless one particular runner drifts before the off.

Which judging by the way it was backed this morning could be unlikely.

Wanting at least 7/2 about Kingdom of Light in the 2.20 at Pontefract, so have done it as Betfair SP option.

Otherwise all quiet today, which is a relief because work again severely got in the way of checking things today, which is set to be the case tomorrow as well.

Well I didn't quite get the price I was after on Kingdom of Light, which is lucky because he could only manage second. In hindsight it was a stupid thing to do, as my entire selection process is centred around backing horses at bigger prices than they "should" be, so by backing at Betfair SP is a completely futile exercise given how impressive the Betfair SP market is at sorting out the exact chances of a selection (at least for systems like this which using the betting market as literally the only reason for making a selection).

Otherwise a 9/1 shot was missed in the 5.15 at Pontefract when Timocracy was very close to being a selection but wasn't for a couple of reasons. Amazingly it went off at 9/4 and then did exactly what was expected. Loads of money for it on course, and there were enough clues about this morning to show that may happen but sadly this time I wasn't on it.

Am doing staff appraisals all day tomorrow so again work's going to get in the way but will do my best to get my bets on as early as possible and will look to update here when I can.
