Thursday 1 November
The start of a brand new month and a new era for Isiris, the Insider bets are no more, and so the number of bets they advise will be drastically reduced.
Nothing from Isiris on Thursday, but three bets elsewhere with a 7/1 each way third the best on offer and a loss of £180 on the day.
Loss on day £180
Friday 2 November
Another Isiris main account bet and another winner, advised at 7/2. Unfortunately the favourite which they were against bolted at the start and was withdrawn and a hefty 40% rule 4 was applied.
Took in Wetherby races on the way home from my short break and had action in three races from the tipsters.
Mark Holder was against Smugglers Bay in the 2.50 at Wetherby and put up Cornell Precedent (9/4) and Mr Crystal (10/3) to beat it. Mr Crystal was a length to the good when he tipped up at the second last when it was all looking good. I have to say though that Callisto Moon did finish his race off very well, and maybe Mr Crystal would have had a fight on his hands for the win had he stood up. Nevertheless a £200 loss on the race.
Earlier Mark had put up Moon Melody in the first e/w at 12/1, which finished second (familiar story !!), although well beat by Alfadora.
Finally at Wetherby, was advised to lay Atticus Boy in the last, and he duly trailed in last of 6.
Elsewhere I was on Cyd Charisse at Uttoxeter, which won - just.
Profit on day £398.
