Time flies when you're having fun, which it certainly did when I was away last week. But also since I got back to work so here I am again with a bit of catching up to do.
Was holidaying on the south coast, staying near Chichester which meant I was able to access the messages and bet if I wanted to. But decided to have a break from it all (it was only 5 days after all) and concentrate on enjoying the break and relaxing. Left the mobile at base but did monitor the messages when I got back from days out to see what I was missing but overall I didn't lose out too much, indeed I backed a winner on Thursday (see below).
For the record, on the Monday SLH gave out a 7/1 winner on his all weather line, but there were losers from his private line and a loser from Blue Sky to offset this. Nothing doing Tuesday with an Isiris insider bet placed for a small loss, an SLH account bet placed for a small profit and a second on the all weather service beaten by a 100/1 shot.
Missed out on Wednesday with Blue Sky giving an each way winner at 6/1 and a loser and a winning main account bet on Isiris although at odds on. Was at Goodwood today, but went my own way and managed to find a couple of winners which paid for the day out.
Had a bet on Thursday when Optimum gave out an each way bet on Any Given Day at Salisbury in the evening, missed the price as I didn't get the message until teatime but I liked the bet and decided to back it and I was on at 7/2 (advised at 9/2) and the horse won well. Others advised on the day were a place and two losers from Blue Sky and a loser from SLH. Won another £95 by laying Rangers in their game at Aberdeen.
Friday, was travelling back and so missed all the daytime action which included a loser from Blue Sky and a loser from Isiris. Was back home in time to back the SLH each way advice on Surface to Air which won at 15/2 at Stratford.
So all in all, had a great few days away - managed a couple of winners and didn't lose out too much from not backing the others.
Profit Monday - Friday £1358
Saturday 24 May
Busy day today and a good winning one as well. Isiris had a main account bet winner. advised each way at 9/2 at Newmarket, for a very good return on the bet. Another winner came from Mathematician with a split stake bet on the Haydock 2.05 - advised Fyodor at 11/1 (won), and Invincible Force at 14/1 (3rd), top class analysis of the race and Fyodor just prevailed by a nose from Intrepid Jack.
Losers on the day came from Optimum with Pampas Cat, finishing second to Unnefer and Blue Sky's pick of the day Luck Money, started favourite but finished last with the jockey reporting he had lost his action.
Blue Sky's other bet was an each way on Could Do at Tralee, finished third at 6/1 for a small profit on the bet.
Finally the mark your card line wasn't in the best of form with no winners at all, best result of the day was a 25/1 second, beaten less than a length, with 4 other horses also finishing in the runners-up spot, including Take The Stand who was beaten in the last stride to illustrate the fine margins between success and failure.
Profit on the day £1045
Sunday 25 May
Had another day off today, the one bet which I missed was an each way from SLH on Deoraoicht at Uttoxeter, third at 8/1 (advised).
Monday 26 May
Winning day again, and Blue Sky were the stars of the show today with two wins from their three selections, all advised each way with Blue Spartan 4/1 and Farley Star 7/2 the winners, and Re Barolo unplaced at 12/1.
Elsewhere, no account bets from Mathematician but his e-mail spotlighted 4 horses on the day, but no returns from any of my bets on them.
No account selections from Isiris, Optimum or SLH left the mark your card line to make up the rest of the days action but with two winners from the 14 horses spotlighted, there was a minimal profit despite a 12/1 winner. Once again there were a few seconds today at 12/1, 6/1 and 5/1.
Profit on day £329
Tuesday 27 May
Another winner from Blue Sky today with a win bet on Please Sing in the first at Leicester, starting the day on the right note winning nicely.
That was as good as it got really, with Mathematician's best of the day Night Prospector unplaced at Chepstow.
SLH gave out a lay on Floodlight Fantasy at Hexham, and I collected when the horse was beaten into second place by Sir Quigley.
The mark your card line had a losing day, with only two winners at 11/4 and 9/2 from 15 horses given out as well as seconds at 8/1, 7/1 and 11/4.
Profit on day £192
Wednesday 28 May
First losing day for a while with no winners from any of the main services I use. SLH gave Folly Lodge on the all weather service, unplaced, and a small each way on his main service on Good Book in the Cartmel 4.0. Unfortunately the horse unseated early on so no run for my money there.
Optimum gave out an each way on Graylin Ruby in the first at Beverley, but the horse finished a well beaten fifth.
The mark your card line is proving frustrating, and expensive, to follow at the moment with just two winners at 7/1 and 11/4 but another five second places including at 20/1 (beaten a neck), and 8/1.
Loss on day £837
Will update later on tonight with all the results from another very busy day on Thursday.
