Second Century

Friday 27 March


I know I've been going on about the number of seconds I've had this year, but I got the century up today - five bets advised producing a winner and four seconds.

Totals for the year now stand at 81 winners, 101 seconds, and 81 thirds.

Never had a full house before, but that was a possibility until the well backed Blockley won for me at Wolves tonight.

Also managed to nick a few quid by trading Mizen Raven, who was put up by both Tipping Legends and Optimum.

Start of the turf flat season tomorrow at my local track Doncaster, and the participation of the Lincoln favourite Expresso Star is very much in doubt due to the current quick ground. Dry day hereon Friday, and they are only forecasting light showers between now and race time.

Seconds are rotten aren't they JP had a couple myself today, both beaten a neck after looking good for wins. Fair enough to be beaten that over 6furlongs but I find it particularly sickening when they've been slogging it out for 3 + miles. Good luck for a decent weekend.

Hi JP,

I take it you're still not following my free selections? Only 2 bets this week, a winner at 9/1 and a 2nd at 8/1. I'm 55 points up on the year to average 2 point stakes, with over 50% of my selections being placed or better. What more does anyone want?

Cheers
Mick
