Friday 9 May
Not for the first time since I started this blog, the fact that I also work has cost me money.
Worked for 4 hours today which earned me about 70 quid, and then cost me about 450. Got held up in traffic which meant I was late picking up my e-mail from Mathematician and also late in ringing the Mark Your Card line, of course they both looked at the 1.45 at Chester and gave the winner Celtic Sultan, which won at an SP of 7/1. Absolutely typical, just what I need the way things are going now.
Also meant that I missed the price on the Blue Sky winner Scuttle, given out at 5/2 - 11/4, I could only get on at 2/1, beat the SP but another £150 went begging.
The other Blue Sky horse, an wach way on Hadaaf at Chester was a loser, as was the Mathematician bet on Van Bossed at Hamilton, and another loser was the SLH selection Dhaular Dhar at Chester.
The mark your card line also gave winners at 9/2 and 15/8 as well as Lindelaan at 11/2 who was nailed right on the line and beaten a nose, along with an each way place at 12/1.
So yet another losing day, and today has really pissed me off.
It's bad enough the way things have been going lately, but this should have been a level day at worst. Things conspired against me today and I dropped another load of cash.
Days like this just make me wonder what's the point.
Loss on day £520
Right, got it off my chest now. Move on to tomorrow, really could do with some good results this weekend though.
