Friday 9 April
A much better day on Friday thanks entirely to Always Waining who won the Topham Trophy at an SP of 22/1.
The horse was put up by Tipping Legends and The Form Guru at 28/1. Packed Pockets gave it out early in the morning when it was available at 40/1, but that was long gone by the time I got the message. I averaged just under 25/1 after commission on Betfair, which was good enough as I had £62.50 each way on it.
As well as Always Waining, Tipping Legends gave Scotsirish in the race - who finished second at 20/1 (advised) - the exacta paid over 500/1 ! Didn't do it unfortunately. A pretty good day all round for JC, in the 4.55 he gave Bob'n'You and Carsonstwon Boy who finished second and third both at 16/1(adv).
Packed Pockets clearly had a great day, and it got even better later when Goliath's Boy won at Musselburgh. Unfortunately this was one that got away, it was less than 3/1 on Betfair having been advised at 4/1 earlier.
Another loser for SLH on his mainline with a three point bet on Escort'men going astray, two losers for Simplebet - although I never picked up the bet on Shawkantango as the battery on my phone had gone by then !
Nagman had Carsonstown Boy each way second at 18/1, I managed 4/1 for the place on Betfair, their other two selections lost.
As on Thursday Formbet sent out a list of bets with his e-mail, overall a one point loss on these, but I didn't back any of them - and I forgot about the BLSC bet on the football, which lost as well.
