Four more inc doubles

After yesterday's success we have another four, two of them doubles, to have a go with today:

York 3.10 Starspangledanner 9-2 B365

Bath 6.30 Uncle Dermot 8-1 Sky DOUBLE STAKER

Bath 8.00 Tanita 7-1 Coral DOUBLE STAKER

Bath 8.30 Green Velvet 6-1 B365

Good luck to them all...

Feeling really frustrated tonight. For the second time in two days a double staked selection is given far too much to do by Richard Hughes. Tanita marooned out the back and then charged home to be beaten by half a length.

Green Velvet was backed down to almost a third of the price got this morning and then met with trouble in running switching left and right before finishing third. Not sure he'd have won though.

The other two didn't do a lot. Starspangledbanner had a strange pre race market, allowed to drift out to 6s and then hammered into again to go off at 4s. Didn't run as expected though, and no excuses. I didn't see the Uncle Dermot race but he sounded well off the pace.

Six points lost on the day and getting annoyed with double staked selections being turned over. Things will turn soon with them I'm sure. Since I started doing them with certain picks it's been a profitable thing to do but it's damn frustrating when a few of them lose in a row!

Confirmation of results with sps:

Starspangledanner, 5th, 4/1

Uncle Dermot, 7th, 6/1

Tanita, 2nd, 4/1

Green Velvet, 3rd, 9/4
