Friday 17 April
Well possibly, but it was just one of those days which will drive me crazy if I let it.
Just one winner on the day, and a good one from the Making It Pay lads with Haarth Sovereign at 6/1.
A tale of woe elsewhere though with Mighty Massini, Naturally Inspired, Mutually Mine and Leamington Lad all finishing second - the last named traded at 1.01 in running and got chinned in the last strides.
It wasn't a lot better with the personal bets and info - among those were Society Music 16/1, Sohraab 16/1 and Bleu Superbe 10/1 and they all finished second as well !
It looks like the bookies have cottoned on to SLH as well. I rang his first message yesterday. Mighty Massini advised at 8/1 - quick look on Oddschecker and 12/1 was available with Bet365, clicked on the link and when the betting slip came up, I was amazed to see they had cut it from 12/1 to 6/1 in one hit. I actually called the message a bit early yesterday and it was already there - the price was cut one minute before the official time of the message. Either they subscribe to it or they've got an insider, because they can't have laid it. I got my bet on at 10/1 with Ladbrokes.
It's getting harder by the day to get these bets on with the bookies - the bet on Patman Du Charmil had to be split into 5 ! I ask you £150 on a horse and I have to spread it across 5 bets to get that amount on.
I'm going to have to find a way round it because I can't work like this - just takes far too long and it's so bloody annoying.
Also, at various points during the day the Oddschecker, Totesport, Stan James and Boylesports websites all crashed when I was trying to use them - it's a wonder the laptop didn't go through the window yesterday !!
