Iver Bridge Lad Goodwood 16:00 10/1 will hill

Aetos Goodwood 17:45 5/1 will hill double stake

Wotchalike Perth 20:15 8/1 boylesports

Olmeto Collonges Worcester 20:20 6/1 bet365

Well the four points lost yesterday all but won back again, and when Olmeto Collonges moved well after continuing to be well backed I thought it could be an excellent five minutes, but not to be. Still, a good day and on to omorrow.

Here's confirmation with sps:

Firebet, 2nd, 3/1

Iver Bridge Lad,10th, 8/1

Aetos, 4th, 10/3

Wotchalike, 1st, 9/2

Olmeto Collonges, 3rd, 3/1

A couple of these close to being double stakers but it's single stakes on the following.

Good luck to:

Alvee Yarmouth 17:00 5/1 betfred 9/2 bet365

Applesnap Yarmouth 17:30 14/1 bet365

Ela Gorrie Mou Windsor 18:40 7/1 will hill

Ellen Street Uttoxeter 18:50 5/1 paddy power/ ladbrokes

Gentle Guru Windsor 19:45 14/1 betfred. 12/1 bet365

Sparkling Montjeu Uttoxeter 19:55 4/1 bet365

Nope not today, a frustrating couple of non runners and then Sparkling Montjeu looked to all the world like she'd win easily (traded at 1.04 in running) before being hauled in in the last 100 yards. Four points lost on the day and we look for better tomorrow.

Here's confirmation:

Alvee, 7th, 7/2

Applesnap NON RUNNER

Ela Gorrie Mou NON RUNNER

Ellen Street, PU, 7/1

Gentle Guru, 7th, 16/1

Sparkling Montjeu, 2nd, 3/1

Good luck to:

Sabotage Ascot 16:35 7/1 Will Hill

Well nothing doing today sadly, Sabotage looked for a minute like starting a winning run but could only get up to third.

Here's confirmation:

Spitfire, 6th, 8/1

Sabotage, 3rd, 9/2

Saturday, 25 July 2009

Five today, one double stake

Couple of interesting ones, Bravely is being really well backed.

Good luck to:

Canongate Newmarket 14:20 10/1 bet365

Lady Of The Desert Ascot 14:40 4/1 stan james/ladbrokes

Key Art York 16:15 5/1 skybet

Bravely Newcastle 17:20 6/1 Ladbrokes DOUBLE

Santefisio Salisbury 20:40 4/1 paddy power

A really good day, with a couple of winners including a double staker which is always a nice bonus. Lady Of The Desert ran really well and won easily and Bravely was a really gutsy winner. Santefisio ran a decent race as well and kept up a good day for value too. 13 point profit on the day, lovely!

Here's confirmation with sps.

Canongate, 8th, 11/2

Lady Of The Desert, 1st, 5/2

Key Art York, 5th, 4/1

Bravely, 1st, 5/1

Santefisio, 3rd, 9/4

Friday, 24 July 2009

Nine today one double

Good luck to:

Thirsk 1.30 Mutajaaser Double Staker 100 Bet365 26.56 W Hill 11-2

South 2.15 Gus W Hill 13-2

Thirsk 4.15 Bahamian Ballad Coral 12-1

Thirsk 5.20 Miss Daawe 28 Betfred, 35.28 Sky Bet 7-1

Ascot 5.35 Effigy 5-1 W Hill

Nkt 6.40 Dashing Doc 9-2 B365

York 7.00 Hoof It 15-2 W Hill

Nkt 7.40 Aye Aye Digby 7-2 B365

Nkt 8.10 Lochiel 11-2 B365

Well 5.5pts lost on the day, although when Lochiel continued to be hammered into I thought we might have a winner in the last for the third day running to sort things out. Sadly Lochiel wasn't aware of the requirements, rearing in the stalls and unseating his rider. Mutajaseer in the first was backed from I think a morning high of 20/1 to go off 7/2 but ran abysmally, so some money lost there by the looks of it.

Aye Aye Digby was a good winner though and meant the day wasn't a major disaster.

Here's confirmation with sps.

Mutajaaser, 11th, 7/2

Gus, PU, 17/2

Bahamian Ballad, 9th, 9/1

Miss Daawe, 7th, 7/1

Effigy, 3rd, 9/2

Dashing Doc, 4th, 9/2

Hoof It, 4th, 8/1

Aye Aye Digby, 1st, 2/1

Lochiel, UR, 3/1

Thursday, 23 July 2009

Four today one double

Good luck to:

Utt 3.45 Jontys Lass 20-1 W Hill

Epsom 6.35 Our Piccadilly 7-1 Bet365

Donny 7.20 Kingswinford 8-1 W Hill DOUBLE STAKER

Epsom 8.45 Spirit of Sharjah 8-1 Bet365

A triumph in the getting out stakes again! Really enjoyed Spirit of Sharjah's win, doing really well to reel in the two leaders near the line, brilliant.

Opened on track at 9/2 before a bizarre drift as I assume the layers got really stuck in on betfair, well they got their fingers pretty burned with that one. Otherwise listening to commentary Our Piccadilly seemed pretty unlucky in running while Kingswinford was a running on fourth, while Jontys Lass drifted and ran to suit.

Here's confirmation:

Jontys Lass, 7th, 33/1 sp

Our Piccadilly, 3rd, 5/1

Kingswinford, 4th, 15/2

Spirit of Sharjah, 1st, 8/1

Just about to update the last few days results as well. Just to say as well that CD junior is doing well, lots of monitoring but no early arrival yet am delighted to say!

Wednesday, 22 July 2009

Three today

Good luck to:

Worc 4.10 Turbo Shandy 11-2 W Hill

Worc 4.40 Munching Mike 11-2 Blue Square

San 8.15 Romany Princess 7-1 Bet365

Romany Princess made sure the day was a good profitable one, with Richard Hughes giving her a brilliant ride. It means a good 5pt profit on the day. Again no time at present to update all results /sps properly but will do soon.

Here's confirmation of results and sps:

Turbo Shandy, 2nd, 3/1

Munching Mike, 4th, 13/2

Romany Princess, 1st, 5/1

Tuesday, 21 July 2009

Six today one double

Here's how we're looking.

Prices taken a couple of hours ago.

Good luck to:

Yar 3.15 Riptide 8-1 W Hill

Yar 4.15 Eyes like a Hawk 9-2 Totesport (double)

F. Las 4.30 Golden Dixie 15-2 Coral

Yar 4.45 Integria 8-1 Bet365

F. Las 5.30 Mustajed 5-1 W Hill

Bang 8.30 Koh Sumui 7-1 Bet365

Full blogging a little thin on the ground just at the moment, but just to say a blank today, completed by Koh Sumui's bizarre run at bangor where he continued to be well supported before the jockey pulled him up before the second fence (and then couldn't stop him running for about a mile). Obviously there must have been some mishap but not sure what. Yesterday saw 2.5pt profit. Will update with full results and sps when I can.

Confirmation of results and sps:

Riptide, 7th, 12/1

Eyes like a Hawk, 5th, 9/2

Golden Dixie, 10th, 8/1

Integria, 5th, 5/1

Mustajed, 3rd, 6/1

Koh Sumui, PU, (tack problems!!!!), 4/1

Monday, 20 July 2009

Six today

Had a very positive morning am delighted to say, all calm for now so things looking brighter. Got a quick minute to mention today's bets which are on thanks to my old man.

Good luck to:

Ayr 4.30 Look Busy 4-1 W Hill

Yarmouth 4.45 Amazing King 15-2 Skybet

Beverley 7.00 Lordship 12-1 Bet365

Windsor 7.50 Miss Holywell 10-1 Bet365

Beverley 8.00 Kidson 7-1 Totesport

Bev 8.30 Trumpstoo 7-1 VC Bet

Good winner here with Amazing King doing the business very well. Kidson looked the likely winner in the 8.00 before the actual winner came out of the clouds to storm clear.

Here's confirmation of results and sps:

Look Busy, 6th, 3/1

Amazing King, 1st, 6/1

Lordship, 9th, 20/1

Miss Holywell, 12st, 16/1

Kidson, 2nd, 3/1

Trumpstoo, 5th, 7/1

Quick update

First of all, thanks very much for the kind comments following yesterday's post, very much appreciated.

Just to say things aren't going so well with our little baby at the moment unfortunately. We think everything should be fine, but it may be that he or she comes along a bit sooner than planned!

Anyway naturally it means that my priorities are elsewhere at the moment. My dad's looking for selections on my behalf and will be placing bets but it's likely the blog won't get updated much in the near future. Ironically today there were no selections anyway!
Hopefully all will be fine and i'll be back updating things as ever before here soon but it may be a little while.
In the meantime all the best and good luck in giving the bookies a bashing.
Regards, CD

Saturday, 18 July 2009

No selections today

Sorry, no selections today, and probably for a little while for personal reasons. Will update again soon. Thanks, CD

Friday, 17 July 2009

Eight today - four doubles

Another very busy day

Good luck to:

Love Match Newbury 14:00 £44 9/2 betfred £82.56 4/1 bet365 DOUBLE

Lady Rusty Newbury 15:45 12/1 bet365

Lucky Numbers Haydock 16:05 7/1 ladbrokes

Sister Clement Newbury 16:20 7/2 stake will hill DOUBLE

French Art Haydock 17:15 £36 stan james £36 betfred both 11/2 the rest Will Hill 5/1 DOUBLE

Bobby Charles Newmarket 17:40 14/1 will hill

Mutamaashi Newmarket 19:45 10/1 bet365

Fat Boy Newmarket 20:20 9/2 Coral DOUBLE

Well just over a point lost on the day, and it felt like things just didn't really happen as they could have. Lots of cash for a load of these and good value was had with plenty of these. A few in fairness ran pretty well but just the one winner, with Sister Clement winning very easily (another damn r4 10p deduction - getting really fed up with stupid non runners). Lucky Numbers was beaten in a photo by a 33/1 shot after looking to take a winning run into the final furlong. Hey ho, on we go.

Here's confirmation:

Love Match, 5th, 4/1sp

Lady Rusty, 7th, 13/2

Lucky Numbers, 2nd, 9/2

Sister Clement, 1st, 11/4

French Art, 8th, 3/1

Bobby Charles, 7th, 11/2

Mutamaashi, 3rd, 5/1

Nine today four doubles

Big day, good luck to:

Agglestone Rock Cartmel 14:30 4/1 bet365 double

My Gacho Leicester 15:15 7/1 coral

Leonid Glow Hamilton 16:35 15/2 vcbet

Manathon Cartmel 17:20 5/1 totesport double

Deauville Post Epsom 18:40 9/2 betfred double

Major Phil Bath 19:55 7/2 paddy power

Stanley Goodspeed Epsom 20:20 8/1 bet365

Plaisterer Doncaster 20:40 5/1 bet365

Heaven Bath 20:55 9/2 vcbet double

A good day, although at about 15:20 I was beginning to wonder if it may be the day from heaven! All three winners showing admirable qualities, Agglestone Rock may be something very special, My Gacho was incredibly game and Plaisterer's jock Jack Mitchell gave him an absolutely brilliant ride to get up to win easily (r4 10p ded). 3/9 for the day, and a 10.5profit on the day which I'm pretty pleaed with.

Anyway here's confirmation of results and sps

Agglestone Rock, 1st, 10/3

My Gacho, 1st, 7/1

Leonid Glow, 3rd, 11/2

Manathon, 7th, 7/1

Deauville Post, 4th, 10/3

Major Phil, 5th, 7/2

Stanley Goodspeed, 4th, 5/1

Plaisterer, 1st, 4/1

Heaven, 7th, 6/1

Wednesday, 15 July 2009

Three today

Three today, although two in the same race which I don't normally like doing. Really slow patch at the moment in terms of numbers of bets, which is quite frustrating but have to be patient.

Good luck to:

Den Maschine Catterick 16:00 5/1 betfred

Olmeto Collonges Worcester 21:10 7/1 will hill

Coltscroft Worcester 21:10 14/1 will hill

Nope not today, 0/3 although Den Maschine ran pretty well beaten just a length at Catterick. Coltscroft had a funny betting spell going right out to 20/1 and much bigger on betfair before being backed in to 12s just before the off. Olmeto Colonges was very nicely backed all day but didn't run to suit.

Hope for a tad better tomorrow!

Here's confirmation:

Den Maschine, 2nd, 6/1sp

Olmeto Collonges, 4th, 7/2

Coltscroft, 8th, 12/1

Tuesday, 14 July 2009

Three today

Relatively quiet period at the moment, with three single stakers today. Another damn bookie restricting stakes now, with Paddy Power refusing to accept more than £33.25 on Half A Crown, pathetic.

Anyway good luck to:

Half A Crown Beverley 15:15 £33.25 at 13/2 paddy power £30.03 at 6/1 with bet365

Style Icon Yarmouth 19:20 12/1 will hill

Lord Theo Yarmouth 19:50 5/1 bluesq

A quiet day and no returns, with Style Icon annoyingly a non runner. Half A Crown drifted before the off which isn't good and then didn't do much before Lord Theo shaped well for a long time but found little tonight after continuing to be well supported. Another runner in the race that was well backed ended up being narrowly beaten into second.

Here's confirmation:

Half A Crown, 6th, 8/1


Lord Theo, 6th, 7/2

Monday, 13 July 2009

Four today

Could do with a couple of double stakers to kick start things again, but single stakes for these four.

Good luck to:

Dubai To Barnsley Ayr 14:00 6/1 bet365

Spare Change Newton Abbot 15:45 5/1 paddy power

Gem Mill Newton Abbot 16:45 6/1 boylesports

Sion Hill Ayr 17:00 9/2 vcbet

Decent day today, with Spare Change winning the 15:45 well showing great battling qualities. Dubai to Barnsley and Gem Mill were never in it, with Gem Mill running surely well below par pulling up on near enough the first circuit despite continuing to be reasonably supported. Obviously the last at Ayr was abandoned because of the pile up earlier in the day.

Confirmation of results and sps:

Dubai To Barnsley, 4th, 5/1

Spare Change, 1st, 4/1

Gem Mill, PU, 9/2

Weekly update (belated)

Have remembered I didn't do a weekly update from last week, so here it is.

Monday 29th June - Sunday 5th July

Selections: 25
Wins: 6 (24%)
Placed: 3 (12%)
Level stakes: +37.2pts

Weekly update

Confirmation of a tough week:

Monday 6th July - Sunday 12th July

Selections: 27
Wins: 3 (11.11%)
Placed: 6 (22.22%)
Level stakes: -18.9pts

Four today

Some nice prices about, but not so good for best odds guaranteed with the middle two having conventional odds. Sporting bet let me have just over £6 - really need to find a new sporting bet account from somewhere.

Anyway good luck to:

Deadline Stratford 15:00 9/1 will hill

Lord Ryeford Stratford 15:30 11/1 sporting bet 10/1 totesport

Harcas Perth 15:45 9/2 betfred

King Ar Aghaidh Southwell 17:00 7/1 will hill

Not happening today either, so a blank weekend, although most of these ran pretty well. The challenge of recovering from Monday's losses falling short in the end, despite giving it a damn good go and looking good on Friday night. Still as I've always said with a strike rate of around 16/17% you're always going to get rough patches so it's just the way it works out sometimes. The most important thing is that the selections are starting shorter at SP than backed, and this is continuing to be the case in the great majority of cases.

Here's confirmation of today with sps:

Deadline, 3rd, 4/1

Lord Ryeford, 3rd, 9/1

Harcas, 4th, 9/2

King Ar Aghaidh, 2nd, 7/2

Saturday, 11 July 2009

Nine today - two double stakes

Really busy day

Good luck to:

Mon Brav York 14:05 5/1 vc bet

Quai dOrsay York 15:45 5/1 boylesports

Dantari Chester 16:40 9/1 coral

Dannios Nottingham 17:05 9/1 will hill

Old Romney Nottingham 17:40 13/2 stan james sporting bet 6/1 vc bet DOUBLE

Haven't time to update properly because the family are down to stay but just to say a wipeout today, with ten points lost on the day (one non-runner - Dantari). Hope for better tomorrow! Will try to update properly later.

Confirmation with sps:

Mon Brav, 4th, 4/1

Tartatartufata, 5th, 9/4

Quai dOrsay, 5th, 10/3

Just Mandy, 3rd, 10/3

Seven Of Diamonds, 4th, 20/1

Sir Sandicliffe, 5th, 6/1


Dannios, 13th, 12/1

Old Romney, 11th, 8/1

Friday, 10 July 2009

Four today

A few to look forward today, with four selections backed, no double stakes again though.

Good luck to:

Lord Zenith Newmarket 14:00 6/1 will hill

Great Charm Ascot 16:10 20/1 vcbet

Stevie Thunder Ascot 16:45 9/2 totesport

Inspirina Chester 21:20 9/2 stan james 4/1 will hill

Well another good day, with Inspirina winning the last really well. As is normally my way, am left with a slight sense of what may have been with Great Charm having been withdrawn after the ludicrous stalls problem at Ascot! But still another 2.5 pts back on Monday's losses, and almost back level for the week. Will update full results/sps tomorrow.

Confirmation with sps:

Lord Zenith, 5th, 9/2

Great Charm WITHDRAWN (14/1)

Stevie Thunder, 4th, 11/2

Inspirina, 1st, 9/2

Thursday, 9 July 2009

Two today

Bit later updating than normal, because of damn meetings at work getting in the way. Just a couple today anyway. I had backed Whitcombe Spirit as well but that's now a non-runner unfortunately.

Good luck to:

Perfect Silence Warwick 16:05 4/1 bet365

Indian Trail Newmarket 16:55 4/1 bet365

Another profitable day, Perfect Silence showing real battling qualities to win the 4.05. Indian Trail got stuck behind a wall of horses but so did many others in the last at Newmarket. Sadly there was a 10p R4 deduction on Perfect Silence but still a decent afternoon.

Here's confirmation:

Perfect Silence, 1st, 9/4sp

Indian Trail, 7th, 9/2

Wednesday, 8 July 2009

No selections today

Sadly no selections today, possibly less money being chucked about because of inconsistent weather? There are two or three horses which would be picked if it wasn't for the fact they're running over the all weather, for example Hawaana tonight at Kempton. But as I've mentioned before, they're not reliable enough, so no runners backed here today.

Tuesday, 7 July 2009

Four today

Back in action with four today, all single stakes.

Good luck to:

Take It To The Max Pontefract 14:30 8/1 betfred

Hey Up Dad Pontefract 17:30 6/1 bet365

Willies Way Uttoxeter 20:50 13/2 vcbet

Chinara Uttoxeter 21:20 9/1 bet365

Bounced back nicely today with a 7pt profit, thanks to Take It To The Max winning the first nicely. Hey Up Dad traded much shorter in running after halving in price at SP but couldn't follow the earlier win up, and then no racing tonight of course becuase of the unsafe ground at Uttoxeter, although Willies Way was already marked down as a non runner.

Anyway almost half of yesterdays losses gone, and July at back above 30pts profit again, so much happier.

Here's confirmation:

Take It To The Max, 1st, 5/1

Hey Up Dad, 4th, 3/1

Willies Way NON RUNNER


Monday, 6 July 2009

An extraordinary day - ten double stakes

This is quite an amazing day, lots and lots of horses being heavily punted, a race to get the best prices.

I've backed all these with double stakes

Good luck to:

Helping Hand Brighton 14:30 14/1 bet365/ betfred

Baizically Musselburgh 14:45 100/30 will hill

Moon Money Musselburgh 15:15 4/1 totesport

Hotham Musselburgh 15:45 8/1 boylesport

Another Grand Musselburgh 16:15 16/1 bet365/boyle sports

Warners Bay Musselburgh 16:45 9/1 will hill

Sircozy Windsor 19:00 7/1 bet365

Special Reserve Windsor 20:00 8/1 will hill

Ursula Ripon 20:20 6/1 vcbet

Jebel Tara Ripon 20:50 10/1 coral

Ok from this day on today will be remembered as Black Monday. A hideous run of defeats halts the recent successes in no uncertain terms, with 16pts dropped on the day. Two non-runners saved more damage - although I can't help thinging Another Grand was potentially a big payout foiled, with the horse backed from my 16s to around 5/1 on course before working himself up so much in the stalls the horse got withdrawn. Otherwise got better than SP with most of these, which is the target, but still a really bad day and thank goodness I reduced stakes the other day. Still well up on the month but there's nothing like a few heavy defeats to bring you back to earth.

Let's hope for better tomorrow, the challenge is now set - can I get a profitable week from a -16pt defecit on the Monday, let's see.

Here's confirmation:

Helping Hand, 10th, 13/2sp

Baizically, 6th, 9/4

Moon Money, 2nd, 10/3

Hotham, 3rd, 10/1

Another Grand, WITHDRAWN (6/1)

Warners Bay, 7th, 8/1

Sircozy, 8th, 10/1

Special Reserve, 6th, 7/1


Jebel Tara , 5th, 8/1

Sunday, 5 July 2009

Two today

Just a couple today, it's good luck to:

Boy Dancer Ayr 15:10 16/1 bet365

Toto Skyllachy Ayr 16:40 15/2 bet365

As pretty much as non-descript day as you could possibly have, with Boy Dancer well beaten and Toto Skyllachy a non runner.

It's been an excellent week though - I wonder what the next seven days will bring.

Here's confirmation:

Boy Dancer, 12th, 16/1sp

Toto Skyllachy NON RUNNER

Saturday, 4 July 2009

Four today - two double stakes

On we press with four selections today,

Good luck to:

Mister Hughie Beverley 14:15 6/1 stan james/betfred DOUBLE STAKE

Alfathaa Sandown 14:40 15/2 bet365

Celtic Change Haydock 17:45 11/2 coral

Colonel Sherman Nottingham 18:20 8/1 paddy power DOUBLE STAKE

What a day of sport by the way - Eclipse, Lions, Wimbledon final - brilliant, just need a winner or two along the way to make things even better!

A profitable day, with Celtic Change winning in a very very tight photo finish. Mister Hughie ran quite well and didn't have any excuses but I thought Alfathaa was given a bit too much to do in the Coral Challenge. Colonel Sherman was a non-runner which was a bit of a shame as he'd been very nicely backed.

Here's confirmation with sps:

Mister Hughie, 3rd, 9/2

Alfathaa, 5th, 7/1

Celtic Change, 1st, 9/2

Colonel Sherman NON RUNNER

Reducing stakes

This may sound crazy given the fantastic run I've been having recently, but I am going to change my staking plan slightly from tomorrow (or today given it's past midnight).

With the bank sitting at £2588.63, my single stakes should be £52.83, using my 2% of betting bank system.

Regular readers of the blog will probably remember that the safety mechanism kicks in when the bank halves, the stakes halve. I.e I would bet until the bank is reduced to £1294.32 and then reduce stakes to £25.89.

But I am at a point now where I don't really want to lose £1300 odd quid, it's a lot of money, and it's not as if I'm made of money. This could happen in just a few days if a few double stakers lose (although they're flying in at the moment!).

The bottom line is we're saving for the baby coming, preparing for being down to one salary, trying to pay off a few debts here and there, basically living a pretty frugal lifestyle. So do I want to go and lose £1300 in a few days? Not really.

Now obviously if the winners keep flying in then all this is immaterial and my bank here will continue to shoot up and break £10k (and the rest!) - but maybe it won't.

So I will now be staking 1% of my bank on selections (2% of bank on double stake selections). But another difference is I will NOT be reducing my stakes if the bank reduces by half at any point, I will keep plouging forward.

So today my core stake will be £26.42 win singles - still a decent amount and still enough to hammer the bookies with a few nice wins - and every time the bank climbs to a new high a new 1% of bank stake will be found.

The 2% stake has been good to me, it's accelerated growth and done it's job. Now it's time to get in the trenches, keep what I've won - and battle on with confidence and no fear.

Good luck to us all in our pursuit for riches.

Friday, 3 July 2009

Seven today - three double stakes

Really a potentially huge day ahead, with some big priced selections and some very heavily backed selections.

Good luck to:

Sporting Gesture Doncaster 14:00 15/2 will hill

Kiwi Bay Doncaster 16:10 14/1 will hill

Charging Indian Warwick 16:20 10/1 bet365/ sky bet double stake

Greylami Sandown 16:35 9/1 vc bet double stake

Looks The Business Warwick 17:25 9/2 bet365 double stake

Kuanyao Salisbury 20:40 5/1 will hill

Saharan Royal Salisbury 21:10 11/2 will hill

Well a good profitable day with a couple of excellent winners. Can't help think what may have been though with Greylami trading at 1.03 in running before being touched off - would have been a huge return with the double stake. Still, mustn't complain and the added bonus of Kuanyao drifting to 6/1 on course after being very nicely backed this morning. Have noticed how quite a few of my evening racing selections recently have drifted a bit at night, maybe because all the money which has gone on them has already been gambled? Anyway they still seem to be running pretty well in the main so best odds guaranteed seemingly the way forward for these selections, if it's only half a point or so lost in the morning?

Anyway here's confirmation of today's results with sps:

Sporting Gesture, 5th, 15/2

Kiwi Bay, 5th, 11/2

Charging Indian, 8th, 11/1

Greylami, 2nd, 6/1

Looks The Business, 1st, 11/4

Kuanyao, 1st, 6/1

Saharan Royal, 10th, 15/2

Four today - three doubles

Explosive little day today, with three double stakers.

Good luck to:

Hawridge King Haydock 16:40 7/1 ladbrokes/ sky bet double stake

Dobravany Yarmouth 17:30 4/1 boylesports double stake

Saxby Redcar 19:45 5/1 boylesports

Ocean Transit Newbury 20:40 6/1 vcbet double stake

A funny day, with a great 7/1 double stake win in the first setting things up very nicely.. Sadly there were that many non runners that we were hit with a big 55p R4 deduction, bit of a shame because the horse looked to win very comfortably and must have had a great chance to win even if the field was complete. My/our £156.96 returned £651.39, so that's 3.154/1 (still comfortably ahead of the SP am pleased to say).

Otherwise a blank, with Ocean Transit a non-runner and Saxby a bit unlucky in running.

Here's confirmation:

Hawridge King, 1st, 2/1sp

Dobravany, 5th, 4/1

Saxby, 3rd, 7/2

Ocean Transit NON RUNNER

Six today - two double stakes

Could be an explosive day - a double staked 16/1 shot in the first no less, although I've had to split stakes between three different bookies.

Good luck to:

Freedom Flying Worcester 15:10 double stake - 16/1 will hill stan james coral

Paperchaser Perth 15:50 11/1 double stake - bet365

Kempley Green Worcester 16:10 5/1 stan james / coral

Kells Castle Perth 16:20 9/1 sporting bet 8/1 paddy power

Tarsus Worcester 16:40 7/1 ladbrokes

Starstruck Peter Chepstow 20:10 11/2 will hill

A fantastic start to the month! Paperchaser landing a big gamble and a lovely double stake selection to boot, and then Starstruck makes all to win the last, with best odds guaranteed in play to return at 8/1.

The only sour note was Worcester having to be abandoned, with one or two very nice looking gambles possibly derailed.

Here's confirmation:


Paperchaser, 1st, 4/1sp


Kells Castle, 4th, 11/2


Starstruck Peter, 1st, 8/1

It means another new stake is found, £41.88
