Monday 17 November
Last Monday wasn't one of my best days, but I've surpassed myself today. Totally forgot about ringing SLH's line till just after 3.50 this afternoon. Hoped that he hadn't given anything out, as today's racing was what you might call moderate - but no such luck. His advice today was a 1 point each way double (£50 e/w to me) on Pop Ahead and Norman The Great. Both around 3/1 when advised, and wouldn't you just know they both won at SP's of 4/1 and 9/4. So after missing out on £1200 last Monday, I missed around another £1000 today.
Not really sure what happened - the Isiris message goes out at the same time as Steve's at this time of year, and the Tipping Legends text came through at about the same time, and by the time I'd got their bets on I forgot about Steve !!
Missed winners before, but this was a sore one - really kicking myself, but it's gone and what can you do. Of course, none of the other tips won and so what should have been a good winning day turned into a dead loss.
New Beginning 0.5 pts e/w at 33/1 - 4TH (SP 14/1)
Pop Ahead / Norman The Great - 1 pt e/w double (both around 3/1, SP for account purposes - WON 4/1, WON 9/4
SLH - A/W
Cap St Jean - win bet, minimum price 9/2 - LOST (SP 11/2)
