Sunday 26 October
Back from another short holiday - had a few days in Scotland this week, weather not up to much but a good break despite that.
Managed to follow the tipsters while I was away, but all this weeks profit came from my own bets this weekend.
Backed Ravens Pass and Henrythenavigator in the Breeders Cup Classic last night and they duly came in first and second - sadly it never crossed my mind to back the forecast which paid more than 150/1 !!
Also backed Donativum, which helped to make Saturday a very special day as I won £820 on the football thanks to a 93rd minute goal from Stockport.
Sunday saw Tipping Legends find Lysander who held on to win at Aintree, his rider rightly suspended for 9 days for excessive use of the whip after the last as his mount managed to hold on.
Three other horses from Tipping Legends were losers on Sunday, and SLH also gave out a loser.
Lost a few quid during the week, despite a couple of winners from Optimum and Isiris.
Graeme Dand is struggling to find winners at the minute - with none at all during the week, although Generous Lad being beaten a nose at 9/1 hurt as this would have covered all the losers. He's taken a couple of days off this weekend, and hopefully he will return to form next week and get his confidence back after what's been a tough couple of weeks for him.
This weeks Golf bets look unlikely to throw up anything, Paul Casey missed out on the places by two shots. Davis Love is 5 shots out of the money, so unless he does something special tonight I will be booking a £50 loss tomorrow.
All being well, I should be able to update most nights this week, hope it's good news !!
Profit on week £1639
Profit for the year now stands at £9957.
