Will be putting on a weekend update later, but it's not been the best couple of days.
Today a busy morning of market activity and a couple of selections.
Good luck to:
Carlisle 3.00 Fadhb Ar Bith 5/1 Stan James
Pontefract 4.25 Stevie Gee 14/1 Betfred
The week spins around into profit in no uncertain terms! This morning the week was 12 points down, but a couple of decent winners push things nicely into profit and the year back into the 100+pts bracket. That's the thing about these big prices, things can turn around so quickly with a couple of winners.
Not getting carried away though of course, this month has been far too stop/start, but it's a good feeling to end the weekend on a high.
Fabhb Ar Bith was very nicely backed and was cruising in behind and won the race pretty smartly in the end, giving a good start to the day.
I am going to mark up Stevie Gee as a 12/1 selection winner, as when I was sending the email Betfred had him marked up as 14/1 but when I checked again after the email was sent the 14s were gone, meaning it would have been impossible for anybody to get the 14s. 12s was available for a few minutes in places though so I think that's fair.
Anyway obviously Stevie Gee was the highlight of the day, travelling smoothly before quickening and then tackled by the fast finishing second Misplaced Fortune, and then really bravely beating the runner up off. It all means a 17pt profit on the day, much better.
Fabhb Ar Bith, 1st/13, 3/1
Stevie Gee, 1st/11, 17/2
