Thursday 7 August
The racing this week has been pretty dull and uninspiring, and the results have followed suit.
Optimum gave out Allied Powers each way at Haydock at 8/1, and it looked like I was going to collect the lot about a furlong out as the horse came through to lead and go on and win the race. Certainly the in-running players on Betfair thought so as he was matched at a low of 1.08. However the horse flattened out in the last furlong and I thought I'd been run out of third place when the line came. However the result of the photo confirmed he was third and so collected the place money at least.
That was as good as it got, with an Isiris each way insider bet finishing fourth (again!), two losers from the Tipping Legends and two horses mentioned by Mathematician both finishing unplaced.
Hopefully tomorrow and the weekend will bring better things.
