A Challenging Week

Said last week that work was getting in the way and that has certainly proved the case this week.

Just a couple of lines about each day of what has been a losing week.

Monday 26 November

Working away from home Monday and Tuesday means I am only able to back the tipping line advices, with just two today - Star Shot falling 4 out when in third and being asked for an effort, plus Alfresco advised each way at Lingfield, hampered 1 out and missing out on third by a short head. Unable to make the call to Isiris and missed an each way third which would have produced a small profit on the bet. So a £200 loss on the day.

Tuesday 27 November

The kind of day to drive me mad. Unable to make the calls to two of my services due to being in a meeting at work and guess what - missed a 9/2 winner and £450 worth of profit, the messages I did get produced 3 losers and a loss of £350 on the day. Don't Give Up The Day Job, the title of Leon's blog. Well I bloody feel like doing that after today.

Wednesday 28 November

Back home now, but unable to do any trading again. Two losing tips mean another £150 gone.

Thursday 29 November

Well this is turning into a nightmare week, another 4 losing tips with none of them ever looking like coming in adds another £450 to the tale of woe.

Friday 30 November

Well thank god it's Friday as they say. Steve Lewis Hamilton puts up two winners - Nicozetto at 7/2 and The Package e/w at 11/2. Unfortunately his lay advice of Roman Villa was unsucessful and his all weather advice Red Romeo e/w also lost. Optimum Racing capped a fantastic month with Top Dressing advised at 5/2 (which I took) eventually winning at 3/1. Unfortunately I backed it with Blue Square who were the best morning price but don't pay out the better SP. Henry Rix advised Osiris Way at Lingfield and Isiris gave out an each way on Nice Wee Girl at 6/1 (SP 9/4) which missed the places by a short head. Nevertheless a very welcome profit of £437 reduce the damage on the week.

November Profit and Loss

Final figures for the month show a profit from the tipsters of £2414 and my own trading of £1074, giving a total profit of £3488 on the month.

Overall profit since starting now stands at £4367 - down from the update last Sunday but very pleasing all the same in only two months.

Weekend update to follow.....
