Monday 9 March
Well I've been bemoaning my bad luck on this blog for seems like forever, so what happened today has lifted my spirits somewhat !
Just about calmed down now, nearly an hour later.
SLH advised a 1pt e/w bet on L'eau du Nil at 33/1 - said he thought it was massively overpriced, had at least as good a chance as most of the field and would be disappointed not to get a run for our money. Well you can say that again Steve !! Didn't look that promising most of the way round, though he began to stay on turning for home, took it up jumping the last and won very well.
Managed to get half the stake on with Blue Square at 50/1, and the rest at the advised 33/1.
So all geared up for the Festival now, with confidence fully restored and high hopes of a memorable week - it's certainly started off in the right way, got the betting money for the first couple of days at least !!!
Don't forget, will be here during the day tomorrow, relaying the ups and downs as they happen and I hope you can join me.
Have a great week !
