Not making as much progress as I would like this month. Still a week or so for that to change, and I am still £320 in front, but a couple of hefty reverses in the last few days have put the brakes on.
Saturday 19 April
Saturday was a very busy day, but I eventually racked up a big loss.
The best tipping came from Mathematician with a win bet on Pee Jay's Dream flagged up in his e-mail. Managed to get the early 5/1 against an SP of 11/4 which was badly needed as it turned out.
SLH had Openide each way in the Scottish National, unplaced. I also had the analysis of this race from Weatherbys, Mathematician and an ante-post from Paul Jones on Old Benny. Managed to get the second, but no chance with the winner and a big loss on the race.
The SLH all weather service put up Methaaly at Wolves, advised at 5/1 - the drift out to 9/1 was ominous, and although the horse was third there was never any chance of collecting.
The Isiris mark your card line could only find 4 winners from the 12 races covered which was disappointing, although the strongest mark of the day won easily.
Finally Bayern Munich conceded a 90th minute goal in the German Cup final to scupper my footy bet and a swing of £210 there.
Loss on day £787
Sunday 20 April
No action from my services today, so was left with the mark your card message from Isiris. Managed to get 3 winners from the 6 races including the strongest of the day which won at 5/1 as well as a 6/1 winner.
Profit on day £293
Monday 21 April
I knew my fate early today as an Isiris main account bet in the first at Plumpton went west, ran very badly and I was immediately £400 down.
SLH put up two account bets today and a similar tale of woe unfortunately with neither troubling the judge, nor ever looking likely to.
The Mark Your Card line only found one winner from 10 races. Disappointed to only get 9/2 on the winner against an SP of 6/1. A few near misses, although in no way unlucky with an each way second at 25/1, an each way 4th at 25/1, an each way 4th at 14/1 and a second at 10/1.
It was left to Mathematician to salvage something from the day with his account bet on Go Amwell, an each way second at 15/2, and an each way double highlighted in the evening message - Mirage Dore and Cape Colony who both won.
Loss on day £467
