Thursday 21 August
Had high hopes for this week with the Ebor meeting at York. That was all washed away of course, and the racing that survived has been uninspiring to say the least - although the Friday cards look good.
As for Thursday SLH had Queen Excalibur as a win bet at 9/2, finished second - went clear turning for home, but was getting caught by Fair Shake when blundered away any chance at the last.
The SLH a/w horse was Tony The Tap at Great Leighs, never sighted and finished last.
Tipping Legends gave out 5 horses, Tia Mia advised each way at 20/1 finished third at Great Leighs, Vanderlin each way at 8/1 finished fourth (aarrgggghhh!!! again), Watch Out each way at 6/1 finished third, Sonoma win at 6/1 unplaced, and Obe Royal each way at 25/1 unplaced.
The only success of the day was my lay of Phillips Idowu in the Triple Jump at the Olympics. Laid at 1.6 and got £224 after commission.
Loss on day £191
