Absolutely dreadful performance from the tipping services this weekend, with not a single winner among the thirteen horses advised over the two days. Worse, only one of them even placed !!!
Saturday 9 February
The only semblance of a chance of collecting anything came in the 3.55 Newbury where SLH had advised a win bet on Orfal D'Airy. Traded lower than 1.25 in running on Betfair but was eventually beaten by a 20/1 shot. Elsewhere Mark Holder put up another two losers to add to his ever growing collection, Henry Rix put up Blue Bajan and Palomar in the big Newbury hurdle which I still fondly remember as the Schweppes Gold Trophy, yes I am really getting old ( bring back the Massey Ferguson Gold Cup and the Irish Sweeps Hurdle I say !!!). Anyway, two more losers from Henry who hasn't given out a winner since before Christmas. The other losers were courtesy of Mathematician, and SLH with two more selections. The tale of woe was completed by a losing football bet from me, although only £22 worth.
Loss on day £597
Sunday 10 February
Another £400 down the khazi today with Isiris playing in the Exeter novice chase, putting up two each way selections, neither of which made the frame. SLH played in three more races, with Or Bleu finishing third and Down The Stretch blundering his chance away before the race really got going. SLH's all weather service put up Batchworth Blaize each way, who was never seen with a chance.
Loss on day £400
