Near misses !

Wednesday 28 October


Nothing much went right for me on Wednesday, with only two winners on the day, and I managed to back six horses which traded at 1.55 or less and didn't win ! Quite how I managed to lose over £600 on the day, I really don't know.

Isiris were all set to give a maximum each way account bet on Big Bay at Nottingham, until KB decided to cancel it at the very last minute. A bad decision as it turned out as the horse won at 2/1 (5/1 was available at the time the message was given out). Doubt I would have got much on each way against the odds-on favourite, but I'm sure I could have made something decent out of it given the way it was backed. Will never know though, sadly.

What's worse is that he did give a main account bet out at Punchestown - Some Present at evens against Sweeps Hill arguing that the bookmakers had made the wrong horse favourite.

Some Present was ultimately backed into favouritism at 4/5, but the race was a complete farce as highlighted by this in running form comment..."led, slow jump 1st and almost stopped 2nd, soon headed until disputed lead at crawl, began to race from before 3 out, ridden and narrowly headed before straight, on terms briefly run-in, soon headed again and kept on without matching winner".

Not a good way to start the day, and it didn't get a lot better.

SLH played in the Haydock 1.50, advising Pilca at 10 and also Silver Steel at 2.06 to cover the stake. Pilca was never really in it, while Silver Steel tried to take the second last fence home with him - and could not recover from that jarring blunder and could only manage second to Incorporation, having traded as low as 1.05.

Maths had an account bet comprising singles on Arizona John and Ede's Dot Com and an each way double on the pair. Ede's Dot Com was an impressive winner at Kempton, but the first leg had already gone down in the afternoon. Arizona John travelled powerfully until he was asked for his effort and found absolutely nothing, fading tamely into fifth place - another one to trade very short, as low as 1.02 for the place. Would have been cursing if Ede's Dot Com's race had been the first leg.

The only other winner advised today was The Form Guru's Gordonsville at 11/2, but he also found three seconds Make My Dream at 6/1, Kiwi Bay at 9/2 and Garter Knight at 12/1.

Just one today from Tipping Legends, a three point win bet on Alanbrook at 4/1, another odds-on loser ! Finished third behind Gordonsville.

Also put those two in a £50 reverse forecast and it looked good a furlong out, until the favourite Dayia came through to split them. Did think about combining the three in tricasts but decided against it.

One point of note on the forecast, following my recent win Ladbrokes would only offer me a £1 reverse forecast, so did the bet with Paddy Power instead.

Pricewise Extra played in the Haydock 1.50 with Widely Accepted, which meant I had three out of five of the runners covered and still couldn't find the winner !

It really was just one of those days.
