We have four horses today, the last day when this blog will be updated at this time. From tomorrow it will be updated later in the day, before the first of our runners. Thankyou to all those who have joined our emailing list and anyone else who wants to join in, please just drop us a line.
Here are today's four:
York 1.40 Breedj 5-1 B365 DOUBLE STAKER
Nkt 2.30 Kensei 5-1 Tote DOUBLE STAKER
Newb 4.00 Shostakovich 7-1 Tote
Aint 6.00 Victor Daly 8-1 B365
Look out for your emails tomorrow; you should have received a test email last night and if you did not, please let us know by email.
A decent three points won on the day after Victor Daly's terrific win at Aintree. Went to the front with the race at his mercy but then was collared in the closing stages, before dramatically getting up in the last few yards to win by half a length. Great stuff. Earlier there was third double staked selection finishing second in the last two or three days, damn annoying.
Elsewhere not much happening.
As well as continuing to work on a new website, I have spent a lot of time tonight looking at each way returns, partly sparked by a few comments in the last few weeks here, and I am beginning to come around to the idea of backing selections each way, strike rate is excellent and it certainly protects the bank when a few selections go close.
I have always held a strong belief that I am better backing my selections win only, but I always remain open minded, and will give this more thought. As ever, thoughts very welcome.
Anyway todays results with sps:
Breedj, 2nd, 4/1
Kensei, 6th, 4/1
Shostakovich, 11th, 10/1
Victor Daly, 1st, 5/1
