Saturday 22 December
So much for getting the Christmas money this week. Lost every single day since last Saturday. Nothing too drastic though, lost what I won last Saturday.
Busy day from the services today with Henry Rix putting up Jack The Giant at 17/4 (hmmm) with Hills. This horse was also given by Mathematician as one of his best of the day so I backed him twice using the staking plan I use for each service. HR also advised a bet on Kanad in the same race but he was withdrawn.
Mark Holder and Mathematician both played in the 1.40 at Ascot but neither could get anything out of the race. Optimum gave out Nikola who finished second at Haydock. SLH's all weather bet today was an each way on Parisian Dancer at 7/1 in the Lingfield 3.10 who duly finished third for a small profit on the bet, lost on the race though as Mathematician played here with Watchman. Isiris gave out an each was insider bet which was unplaced.
Overall a profit from the tipsters of £32, but I lost £100 on the footy to ensure another loss on the day.
That's it for the English racing until Boxing Day. Milder weather is forecast for next week, so with a bit of luck we've finished with the abandonments for the time being and we can enjoy some great sport over the holiday.
Loss on day £68
