Going Just Fine

Got back last night after a week staying with friends down south. Had a great time, re-charged the batteries and managed to win a few quid on the horses and the golf while I was at it.

Here's my week

Tuesday 29 July

Travelled down Tuesday afternoon which meant I got all the bets on before I left with the exception of the late call back for SLH. Didn't pick up any results until late in the evening and delighted with what I found.

Tipping Legends gave out selections in six of the seven races at Goodwood and came up with three winners - Paco Boy (e/w) won at 9/1 (one of two horses advised in the race), Sanbuch 7/1 and Gyr which won at 6/1.

Isiris had a main account bet on Dunelight which finished third to Paco Boy at 14/1, and a losing insider bet with Woodcote Place.

Optimum had an each way bet on Jargelle, third at 9/1 - this horse was also given a positive by Paul Jones on the Blue Sky forum (of which more to follow later) and another profitable bet. Optimum also gave a positive mention to Inheritor which won at Beverley. PJ also gave Arabian Gleam as his best of the day - finished unplaced.

Maths tried a combination bet to minimum stakes at Goodwood which didn't come off, while SLH gave out two bets in the evening - a losing each way double, and a win bet on Basalt which won the last at Worcester very easily.

Profit on day £1610

Wednesday 30 July

Now in full holiday mode, in other words woke up mid morning with a thick head, which was quickly cured by what might be called a hearty breakfast and I was set to go again. Out and about all day, managed to get all the bets on again though but just using Bet365 who give the best odds guarantee, because I didn't have the time to ring round half a dozen bookies trying to get the best prices on a dozen horses.

Another decent profit landed with the honours once more going to the Tipping Legends who found two winners in Love Galore (e/w) at 12/1 (14/1 advised) and Oslot (9/2, advised at 5/1) which won the Galway Plate. So missed the best price on the two winners, although I comfortably beat the SPs of 8/1 and 11/4.

Elsewhere Isiris were on Raven's Pass each way with a saver on Tariq, and also an insder bet on Dream Castle at Perth, an odd one I thought - a large win bet on a 14 year old in a claimer at 6/4. Horse was unplaced at an SP of 6/5.

Only other bet of the day was from SLH's all weather people - Alfresco e/w at 16/1 unplaced.

Profit on day £400

Thursday 31 July

Couple of the lads were going sea fishing today. Not interested myself but decided to join them, plenty of beer, food, newspapers, mags, radio and could have a relaxing day watching those two pillocks failing to catch anything.

One slight snag, when we arrived I realised that I had no mobile coverage, and therefore couldn't get any of the messages or get any bets on. However we had an enjoyable day and retired to the pub in the evening where I caught up with the days events.

Turned out I lost out on 200-300 quid as Tipping Legends found Indian Days, a 9/1 winner and an Isiris main account bet on Pegasus Lad came in at 3/1. However they were the only two winners on a busy day for the services so not too much harm done.

That's all for July and what a month it has been. By far my most successful period to date, winning £6749 in the month and taking the yearly profit to just over £10,000.

Back shortly with the first few days of August.....
