Friday's tale of woe

Had a tough time of it Thursday and Friday and the news doesn't get any better as I discovered this morning when updating my spreadsheets that I had won £150 less on Wednesday than I thought - oh bloody great !

Quieter day on Saturday which I will report on tomorrow as I'm out early tonight so need to get ready. Finished the day about level I think.

In the meantime, here's the Friday shopping list for you to pick the bones out of. In contrast to Thursday where nothing fell my way at all, there was little in the way of hard luck stories yesterday. Winners in very short supply with only Zaynar and Cappa Bleu doing the business for me. Tramantano briefly raised hopes in the last, and ultimately provided a little free bonus at the end, but it wasn't to be.

Will have a think about the weeks events over the next few days, no regrets from my side - just disappointment. Think some new strategies need to be brought in for next year though, won't deviate from my plan - just need something to complement it.

Yes, more bets - that's the answer !!!!

Yes, more bets - that's the answer !!!!

I cant believe you said that JP!
It would be Squeaky Bum time for me if I was doing all those bets to be honest, you must have some adrenaline when your watching the races that all I can say!

Anyhow hope things turn round for you now things have settled down a bit....

Jeez JP...I would seriously reconsider your strategy for Cheltenham in future. Not only did none of them recommend the best chaser of our generation to win but there are just too many multiple bets being thrown at each race...and this was the most competitive racing of the whole year which requires more specialization. Hope you scrape some of those back but doesn't look right and I would at least consider dutching the more popular bets and not just backing them all blindly next year.
