Been a busy few days, so need to get things up to date and it's been a good week.
Wednesday 27 February
An up an down day but finished on the right side eventually. Isiris gave out and each way main account bet, but unfortunately we finished one place out of the money. Unusually, they played again 40 minutes later with an each way insider bet and this time the horse won and landed the 11/2 for me.
SLH put up Opera Writer on his all weather service but the horse could only manage third place. Steve also had two bets on his private service, an each way on Olympian who was disappointing and a win bet on Flake who won at 4/1. Mathematician gave Silencio in Flake's race, which finished fourth.
Profit on day £200
Thursday 28 February
Just two bets on Thursday and the first reverse of the week. Steve was the source of the action again with Caislean Na Deirge at Ludlow and Earl Kraul at Kempton both given out each way. Unfortunately neither of them reached the frame, although the first named travelled up well for a fair way until fading rapidly once they turned for home.
Loss on day £180
Friday 29 February
Last day of the month and just one bet today from Steve, with a big priced punt at Kempton on Bens Georgie. Unfortunately it ran as its price suggested it would and finished well down the field.
Loss on day £100
So that's February wrapped up and the final analysis shows a small profit of £350. Nothing to get too excited about but a sharp upturn from the first few days of the month when things were looking a bit bleak following a dismal January.
Still £1295 behind on the year to date, but the signs are positive and Cheltenham is just around the corner. As mentioned previously I have susbscribed to Paul Jones / Weatherby's ante-post Cheltenham service and have already built up a large porfolio of bets for the festival. More to follow in the next few days I expect, with additional bets from my other services no doubt. Will be at home for Cheltenham week, so will be trading the prices as well. Hoping for a very good month in March which will get things moving in the right direction and enable me to kick on for the rest of the year.
