Interesting looking day ahead, and quite an important one for me personally because if the first six runners lose, I'll be reducing my stakes by half. Hopefully one of them can pop up and secure a nice return. As it is I've placed half stake on the seventh runner assuming the worst, but will top up if necessary.
If things do drop down to £675 then I'm still pretty relaxed about it as this is what happens with a fairly aggressive staking plan, and it's just the buffer kicking in which is it's very purpose!
Anyway good luck to:
Dreamonandon Hamilton 14:55 6/1 stan james/sporting bet (£10.53 with sporting bet)
Talk of Saafend Hamilton 15:30 12/1 coral/stan james (£16.50 on with SJ)
The Salwick Flyer Hamilton 16:45 10/1 will hill
Jealous Again Ascot 16:55 10/1 bet365
Mister Pink Worcester 17:10 12/1 sporting bet
Liberally Ripon 20:20 6/1 bet365 double stake
Grey Command Ripon 20:50 13/2 will hill
The yanks do it again at Royal Ascot then, in grand style, and just in the nick of time for my bank, although could have done with a winner from the four stakes that followed.
Plenty of decent value about though today with early prices beating SP in every race.
Dreamonandon, 8th, 100/30sp
Talk of Saafend, 6th, 9/1
The Salwick Flyer, 9th, 8/1
Jealous Again, 1st, 13/2
Mister Pink, 11th, 6/1
Liberally, 4th, 4/1
Grey Command, 4th, 11/2
The bank is now on £918.34, nine stakes of £27 away from seeing my bets halved, still a bit too close for comfort.
