We have plenty of action today, with five runners and as evening racing really gets going there will be plenty more to come.
Today's five are:
New 1.35 Klammer 12-1 Totesport
New 2.10 Meezan 5-1 B365
New 2.40 Sohrab 9-2 Coral
Utt 6.00 Woodcraft 7-1 S James
Chel 7.20 River Indus 6-1 Lads
Good luck to them all..
Well a cracking day, with the first couple getting home first. Sadly Totesport placed a 25p in the pound deduction after a non runner on the Klammer race, so that settled as a 9/1 winner in the end. I do hate it when that happens as I always tend to assume that the withdrawn runner would never have won, but who knows maybe it would have done. With Meezan's win it all means an 11pt profit on the day.
By the way I've had a comment saying that the Totesport price was 7/1 shortly after the blog went up. I should say that the prices I place on this blog are the prices I have backed at, which are normally in the last 10/15 minutes before the blog is put up. Sometimes the prices are actually bigger elsewhere than backed here, but I've not been able to get on with that particular bookie for one reason or another. Normally there are quite a few bookies with the same price as I've backed with, but I just literally reveal the bookie I've backed with. This is because this blog has historically just been about recording my own particular bets, it's only as a matter of interest that has been generated that it is has turned into something more than that.
When I make the changes to the "new era" obviously I'll address this.
For those doubting the 12/1 i backed with Totesport, (and I don't think Alan, the poster, was, incidentally), here's the screenshot of the settled bet.
Will update results with sp later!
