Saturday 1 March
An interesting day, and once more a profitable one. Irisis gave our a main account bet on Natal, each way at 4/1 with instructions to lay back at 3/1 for a no lose bet.
This I did and the horse duly won. Felt afterwards that I had missed a trick and should have had more on and traded for a profit. This is what I need to do on my betting anyway and should have done that here. Never mind, a profit on the bet and another few quid in the bin.
Other bets on Saturday, Mathematician gave out Quicuyo at Kelso who was all the rage in the morning before drifting to an SP of 13/2. Ran up well for most of the race before fading dramatically on the run-in and eventually only beat three home. SLH gave out a speculative bet on Mister McGoldrick at Newbury to minimum stakes at a big price. Was on at 28/1 and happy enough with the bet, with the horse running well and eventually finishing fifth.
However had to wait until the very last race of the day for the best of it, with SLH going each way on Terminate at the morning 8/1, being heavily backed on-course into an SP of 5/1 and winning readily to ensure I had a very good day.
Profit on day £460
Sunday 2 March
A quiet day with just one horse put up by Mathematician. Shavansky won the 2.20 at Huntingdon and I made a £90 profit (10p rule 4 on my early 2/1).
Profit on day £90
So on the face of it, a very solid, steady week until you add it up and realise that I've won nearly £1200 since Monday. If only every week were like this, no violent swings either way and nicely in front at the end of it. Can't be of course, but I'm happy to enjoy the moment and look forward to the week ahead.
