Sunday 27 July
Another hot day up here in Yorkshire but not such a hot day for my account.
Just one from the Tipping Legends, All The Good at Ascot, advised each way at 10/1 and missing the places by one in finishing fourth. This has happened countless times this summer, but you have to put up with these things. Drive you mad if you let it.
An insider bet from Isiris, the obvious one at Carlisle Beauchamp Wizard at 11/4 each way against the odds on Tartan Gigha in an 8 runner race. As luck would have it, one refused to go into the stalls and so the field reduced to seven and only two places. Fortunately still managed to bag the second place, well beaten by the short shot despite the winner hanging violently left handed.
Mathematician's best was Caffari at Pontefract, finished 4th.
Personal bets today were on the Scandi football where an 88th minute goal did me for £450. Marvellous.
Nothing doing on the Golf this weekend either, so I'll book those losses today as well.
Loss on day £727
Decided to put a counter on the blog this week, and heartened to see how many people actually stop here to have a read. Very much appreciated and any comments are always more than welcome.
Coming up this week is Glorious Goodwood. I'm away on holiday for a few days with the lads from Tuesday so there will be plenty of betting, cards and general wasting of money to be done. Bound to be a very busy week on the tipping front so I will try and make as many of the calls to the tipsters as I can. Will be a great week anyway, hope it's a profitable one as well.
