Got out of Jail

Saturday 18 April


A lady riders' handicap was the highlight of Saturday for me as Maths' selection Smarty Socks landed the spoils at 13/2, having been backed from a morning price of 10/1.

However, it was a disappointing day otherwise - evidenced by the fact that I lost today despite having a 10/1 winner.

Tipping Legends had another near miss and Tony McCoy was again my nemesis getting The Polomoche back up to deny Halla San near the line.

Nothing doing either from any of the other personal bets and trades I did today, dropping £257 overall - but still nicely in front on these this week.

Not expecting too much tomorrow from the horses but you never can tell - it's been a bit of a retreat from last weekends high point which has come as no surprise really, although good fortune has been in short supply in the last couple of days.

Got a runner in the golf this week, which is always interesting. Had £50 e/w on Markus Brier at 40/1 in the Volvo China Open, and he currently lies in third place going into the final round three shots off the pace. Plenty of players just in behind him so he will need to play well in order for me to collect anything off my bet.

So something to watch in the morning, he tees-off at 5.30am our time, and the coverage starts at 6am on Sky. Will probably set the alarm and then watch it in bed in between snoozes assuming he's in contention. If not then I'll just switch off and go back to sleep.
