Wednesday 23 January
Things just not going for me at the moment. Not doing any damage in terms of losing, however to finish the day behind having backed a 10/1 (less r4) winner is frustrating to say the least.
Mark Holder finally got back in the winners enclosure with Jaunty Flight at Huntingdon, although the 10/1 advised suffered a 10p rule 4 deduction (again). He advised a 1pt e/w bet on the winner, however in the same race he gave a 2 point each way bet on Marshalls Run (7/1), who was in third place on the run in but faded away to nothing to finish 5th, one place out of the money. Mark's other bet of the day was a speculative one on Island Flyer in the 1.40 at 33/1 which ran a fair race in finishing 6th.
Steve Lewis Hamilton's all weather pick today was Gimme Some Lovin at Lingfield, ran a great race but just couldn't get to the winner, however I collect on the place part having backed her each way at 12/1. His other bet was an each way on Solway Bee at Musselburgh, pulled up.
Optimum were also in action today but their disappointing run continued as Johnny Roach could only finish second.
Other bets to note, Mark Holder was keen on Ogee each way at Huntingdon so I had a small interest. Suffered the fate of all good each way bets and finished 4th.
Finally last nights football bet cost me £32.
Loss on day £56
