Tough Weekend

Two more losing days this weekend to confirm this month will be the worst I've had in the two years I've been writing this blog.


Saturday 28 November

The racing looked like being a complete disaster on Saturday, until Beat The Boys won the Rehearsal Chase at Newcastle. Couldn't get the 20/1 advised by Tipping Legends, but managed 16/1 which beat the SP by a couple of points.

Despite winning over £2000 on that race, I still lost over £1400 on the racing on Saturday - which was what Isiris lost on the day. KB said he was going to "force a change of luck" - which worked a treat ! Quite why he felt the need to go for it in that way god only knows but 28 points lost in a couple of hours was a joke really, and means 145 points gone in the last six weeks, nearly half the advised bank for this service. See what he tries next week !

As I mentioned it was another very profitable day for Tipping Legends thanks to Beat The Boys, also collected the each way part of the bet on Fistral Beach which finished second for the sixth time in seven races, but Pasco was beaten despite trading 1.09 in running.

No winners for The Form Guru, altough Pop (advised each way at 20/1) finished fourth and Frontier Dancer was second at 9/1, although he couldn't get anything out of the Hennessy despite having five tries at it !

Had nearly half of the Hennessy field running for me, but none of them were a match for Denman who was a brilliant winner and has set things for a wonderful race at Cheltenham next March.

One winner out of two from Punter Profits - but the price on Quantatative Easing was too short for me to get involved.

Only backed one of the two Pricewise Extra selections as the 7/1 on Parsons Pistol had a best priced 9/2 within a minute of the tips going up on the Racing Post site. Of course it won (at 7/2) and the other one got beat, as did the two Maths mentions which both finished second.

Aside from the racing on Saturday, the football pretty much showed how things have been going lately. With half an hour to go all four of Winabob's selections were in front.

However things rapidly went downhill. I was on Barnsley at 2/1 and they were 4-1 up against Plymouth after 58 minutes when the referee in his wisdom decided to abandon the game as he felt the pitch had become unplayable. Just what I needed, £400 gone just like that and things fell apart in the other games as well, including an injury time equaliser foe Scunthorpe, so I ended up with one even money winner and a loss on the day.

Football Elite once again showed a profit with two out of four winners, including Sporting Gijon at over 2/1.

Sunday 29 November


Couple of winners on Sunday with Open De L'Isle for The Form Guru and Alvarado for Punter Profits. Alvarado was odds-on but I'll back any of these that are 4/5 or bigger, and I got 1.95 on Betfair for half of it, and the rest at the SP of 5/6.

SLH put up Daring Origyn at Leicester, each way against the odds on favourite and only 15 minutes before race time. Got less than half the bet on at the advised minimum of 6/1, and with the horse shortening up to an SP of 3/1 that was as much as I got. No real harm done as the horse finished second to the favourite.

SLH also had a bet on his exchange line, and I didn't get this one either. A one point lay of Constantius at a maximum price of 3.25 - there was less than £100 in front of me when I put my lay in but I never got a match and it drifted out all afternoon - before finishing fourth in the race at an SP of 4/1.

Maths mention turned out to be the Pricewise Extra selection, but Dune Raider could only finish fourth.

Was hopeful of a payout on the golf today, Ryo Ishikawa was joint leader going in to the final round of the Casio World Open, but it wasn't to be and he finished second by three shots - having been advised win only at 8/1. Australia finished sixth in the World Cup of Golf. Football Elite had one bet today, but Parma could only draw 1-1 with Napoli.

Bloody awful from isiris but kb says we are backing the right horses and not to worry, the worrying thing is not one selection has run a race recently. How long this goes on remains to be seen but i wont be resubscribing again, jp whats your thoughts ?

Brian said...

Overall picture you are still having a great year.Less said the better about Isiris at present,but like I said I used to have the teashirt,wore it proudly at one time but have since burnt it!
Im sure you will make a good go of it.

Hi anon,

It's been a shocking performance from KB over the last month or so and Saturday was desperate. Chasing losses can only have one outcome really, and we got it.

Still 9 months to go, and plenty of time to turn it round, but rhe recent run has been as bad as I can remember and it is worrying.

A winner today (Monday) at least has stopped the rot, so see how things go for the next few weeks.

Hi Brian,

It's been a great year, and I was due a bad run at some point and it's come now.

Hopefully can show a nice profit in the last three weeks and end the year on a high.

As for Isiris, we shall see !
