Places no good

Wednesday 23 September


Couple of winners today with Agent Archie for High Class Equine at 9/2, and Fiorentina winning for Football Elite. Had to take 11/10, best price when advised was 6/5 but had no chance to get that due to work commitments.

Otherwise there were plenty of near misses, which all added to a sizeable loss.

SLH advised two horses to lay on his exchange line. Kells Castle which won, and Benny The Piler which didn't. Unfortunately I couldn't get matched at the advised price on the latter as the horse drifted alarmingly before the race. I could have taken the lay in running and would have been matched as the horse travelled well during the race but I don't like doing that as a rule.

There was also a loser on SLH's all weather line.

Equine Investments advised an each way double with the first leg winning and the second horse finding one too good.

The Form Guru selections proved to be very frustrating. A three point bet on Ghost Dancer went astray as Jamie Spencer did what he does best, hold the horse up in last place come with a good run and not quite get there - beaten a neck. Johnstown Lad travelled like the winner for much of his race but his run flattened out when it mattered most in the final furlong and he finished third. French Art advised each way finished fourth, and the only bet to produce a return was Capable Guest - third at an advised price of 14/1.

The extra bets / mentions etc failed to add anything today - Arthurs Edge and Tamasou both finished second, beaten a head and a neck respectively, and a reverse forecast on Tamasou / Johnstown Lad looked good for a while, but We Have A Dream became a nightmare for me as my horses came in second and third.
