Fuming !!!

Thursday 8 October

I can normally keep my head these days no matter how bad things might be going but I feel like spitting the dummy out tonight.

Don't usually work Thursday's but was in today, very busy day as well so tight for time getting all the bets on.

Get the worst news out of the way first.

Isiris had two bets today, the first being unplaced and a loss of eight points. The second bet was given out in a 5pm callback, which meant I was pretty much stuffed in terms of getting anything on with no internet access at work, apart from on my mobile.

Price advised on Classically was 11/2 with William Hill - cut to 4/1 by the time the page had loaded on my phone, and the price had also gone on Betfair by the time I was able to check.

The price never came back out and of course Classically won (at 3/1) to compound the misery of what has been an awful week. What I would have managed to get on if I'd been at home is questionable, but being stuck at work I had no chance to do anything. Anything up to £1200 gone begging there, which is the last thing I need at the moment.

The £50 I saved from failing to get a place bet on Liberally matched was no compensation.

SLH had losers on all three of his lines today, adding another £500 to add to this weeks losses.

The Form Guru is having another bad run again this week, with 30 points gone in the last three days again - seems to be happening regularly at the moment.

Isiris's first bet Rocky River was very well backed, advised at a minimum of 6/1 and returned at half those odds. From reading the report looks like the horse went tanking off after the leader, used up all his energy and was beaten miles from home.

Maths had an account bet featuring Implication and a saver on Swift Chap, the saver landing the spoils for a fair profit on the bet, and High Class Equine's first bet for a while was a winner - but a £50 winner at 9/4 barely registers on another lousy day.

Just to complete the tale of woe, didn't get time to read the detailed messages today, but Equine mentioned one horse - Arab League (won 7/2), Maths mentioned one - Sprosser (won 5/1), and The Form Analyst mentioned three - Roussea (won 7/1), Dark Energy (won 11/2) and Fourpointone (3rd at 9/2). Not on any of those either, but things will turn around. Should have done today, hopefully get back on the winning trail tomorrow - at least I'm at home !

I used to follow Isiris,great results,but,quite often missed the price or got cut back with size of bet,or books would not take each way.
Did not rejoin this year because of this,so frustrating,know how you feel!

Hi anon,

I'm sure I can make Isiris work for me this year. It's just in situations such as Thursday where I'm stuck in work I've got no way of getting the bets on.

Had I been at home I would have been able to do something with it.

It is the first time since they came back that a price has dropped like that and not come back. Whether the bookies are wise to Isiris again now or if he's signed up some more members or a combination of the two I don't know.

See how the next few go.
