Another Weekend Washout

Another very bad weekend and I simply cannot let this situation continue without taking action to try and halt the slide. I'll put up the details of what I intend to do here later today, as well as a response to Changing Days' comment the other day regarding how I feel about things at the moment. First though, here's the latest tale of woe.

Saturday 17 April

Bad day with a loss of over £1300 across the portfolio and my personal trades. Nine losers from The Form Guru, all unplaced, was the main reason - including four in the Scottish Grand National.

SLH's poor run on the main account continued with Glingerbank finishing third at Ayr, although both of the lays on the exchange line were successful - still another losing day for SLH.

Paul Jones picked out two in the Scottish National, but That's Rhythm was an early faller and Mobaasher never figured.

Tipping Legends had Gone To Lunch in the Scottish National - ran a great race but found one too good in the shape of Merigo. Also selected Mobaasher in the race and had two other losers on the day.

Dingle View won for Fryboy, which covered the stakes on the other three bets and so a small profit on the day for him, while SimpeBet and Packed Pockets both had one loser each.

Nagman had a winner with Captive Audience which won at 3/1, and their Scottish National pick Dom D'orgeval finished fifth - caught right on the line to lose fourth place by a nose. Some bookies paid out five places, including B365 which Nagman advised, but not the one I used !

Skeeve had three out of seven correct on his non-league picks, but a loss of over £200 for me, while the BLSC and FLC bets more or less broke even.

Sunday 18 April

Level day on Sunday, and got a break with a late goal finally going my way when Sampdoria scored an injury time winner to beat AC Milan. That was for Football Elite, but Matt's other bet was a loser as Parma lost at home to Genoa.

Very quiet day on the horses - SLH's account bet Midas Way just managed to sneak into third place near the line - it wasn't pretty, the horse looks a complete dog !

Three losing bets from BLSC, although had Arsenal not capitulated against Wigan, it would have been a profitable day.

Golf wise, Betting Zone tipped up YE Yang who won the China Open at 14/1 (was late getting these on and had to take 14 on Betfair). They also tipped Heath Slocum at 70/1 for the Verizon Heritage. He was in the lead halfway through his final round, until the wheels came off big style and he missed the places by one shot - so frustrating ! Nothing from any of the Birdie Golf tips at the weekend.
