Wednesday 20 August
No surprise to see York is washed out for the rest of the week, no chance at all given the weather in the last week or so. Some of the races have been scheduled for the weekend, and an 11 race card at Newmarket on Friday is one of the consequences.
As for today, Tipping Legends came up with Right Stuff, a 7/2 winner and a loser in Dillay Brook at Newton Abbott - finished third.
Optimum advised an each way bet on Ashwinder at Folkestone, finished unplaced and Mathematician tried for 3 horses in 3 win doubles. Unfortunately that was scuppered when Hamilton was called off at lunchtime and so was left with a double on Celt and Outside Edge - the short shot won no problem but Outside Edge could only manage fourth.
Isiris were planning a main account for York today which was obviously cancelled, then he had one at Newton Abbott which was a non-runner and then another at Hamilton which was again rained off. Despite that they managed to come up with a main account bet with Almonafis each way at Folkestone. Said it was a speculative pick and had nothing from the stable to back it up. To be honest, I didn't like the sound of it and, being a bit slow with the price, I decided to leave it alone. KB's not in the best of form just now, and so it proved with the horse fading tamely into 4th place - and so I saved myself £400.
