Wednesday 12 March
Couldn't believe the news when I got up Wednesday morning and the festival was abandoned for the day. The right decision obviously and made good and early, which should be applauded.
Left with Huntingdon and the all weather and only bets from Steve Lewis Hamilton. First bet was an each way on Lady Pilot, given at 11/2 - managed to get 6/1 with Betfred but then the horse drifted to an SP of 15/2 and no best prices, so a few quid went astray when the horse stayed on well to win. Second bet came in the next race, with another each way on Grantsville at 9/2, backed into 5/2. The horse raced keenly but looked likely to win turning for home before emptying quickly in the straight and fading to finish fourth, taking down the bet and the additionally advised each way double.
The all weather bet was Guadaloup, who led until the turn for home before fading out and finishing unplaced.
Profit on day £5
So a day which promised so much when I went to bed on Tuesday night delivered little. However the action was only postponed, as you will see when I update again shortly.
