Frustrating

Saturday 7 March


Managed one winner today, Ceremonial Jade at 4/1 but more places at big prices which are no good to me of course.

My Friend Sandy came second at 20/1, stayed on all the way up the Chepstow home straight but couldn't reel in the winner, beaten just over two lengths.

Similarly Prince Taime stayed on late in the day to finish third in the Imperial Cup, where The Form Analyst's selection Alsadaa finished fifth. Anyone backing e/w with the sponsors would have been paid out on their 66/1 bet.

Mahadee put up e/w by both TL and Maths finished in the worst possible place, 4th beaten a short head for 3rd - which is the main reason why I gave up backing each way last year. That happened so many times it was untrue.

Had a quick look through the results for the year so far last night, and after today, excluding e/w doubles, golf and my personal bets, I've backed 56 winners, 71 seconds, and 59 thirds.

So the winners are lagging behind somewhat and dragging the profit down, well take the golf out of the equation and it looks pretty dismal. Getting nowhere at the minute, and feeling a bit frustrated with it all.

Just waiting for things to turn, keep saying that don't I ? Whichever way it goes there will be movement on the account next week !!

Greetings JP,

You have already proved you have the discipline to follow your plan. I don't need to tell you that you need to look over your records and see all those near misses for the win spot will turn in your favor in the next 50 or so bets and the result...huge profit.

keep the faith.

You're right of course, but the current run seems never ending - another one today !
