Oh Crick !!!

Thursday 2 April

Well I shouted something similar at the television at about 4.25 this afternoon when Oh Crick beat Lord Jay Jay by a length - I was on the second at 50/1. Half an hour later I backed Deep Purple, who finished second at 25/1 !!! Deep Purple made a shocking mistake down the back straight and the jockey did very well to stay on. So yes it was another one of those days. Shot for the moon again today, and landed short once again. I'll hit the jackpot eventually, if my heart isn't broken first !

However I played things slightly differently on the Tipping Legends selections today and backed all their selections to £50 a point in accordance with their staking plan, so I managed to pick up some place money. Did the same on SLH's tips as well - the a/w selection finished third, and the mainline selection was 4th and in the money until getting caught near the line to finish 5th (in Lord Jay Jay's race incidentally - it never rains but it pours !!).

Going to do this for the next couple of days and may continue beyond that, see how things go - as I've said previously I want something to run alongside the current plan and just trying a few things out at the moment. For the purposes of this blog, I will record this additional bets under my own personal bets and trades.

As at Cheltenham, I had the Paul Jones overnight e-mails, but I changed what I did at Cheltenham today, just bet those horses which I had not got from other sources, backed them at the bookies or on Betfair to variable stakes and it worked out well with 6 of the 7 winners today on the shortlists.

Profit on day £420


On any other day I would have been delighted to win £420, however two huge priced seconds within half an hour of each other was a bit hard to take really. Still, a win is a win and the battle goes on tomorrow.

Gutted myself JP!!!with Catskills luck. Was within touching distance of a six figure payout with EW doubles for the sake a few lengths.... 7 figures if 4 of the placed horses actually won......

Hard luck with those seconds JP, but yes not a bad day's profit.

Imagine - if you manage what you won today every day for a year you'd be up more than £150k!
