Friday 16 April
A profitable day for the portfolio, but a losing Insider Bet for Isiris and a couple of bad trades on Betfair by me ensured that I'm booking another loss today.
A better day for The Form Guru today with Al Co winning and big priced places for Minella All Star and Avonteur. I didn't notice that I wasn't fully matched on the place bet on Avonteur, which cost me around £20, as well as having to take under the odds anyway for the place.
SLH advised a lay of Kennel Hill for the second time in a couple of weeks, but this time he managed to get the horse beat - unfortunately he was pulled up injured with what is reported may be a career ending injury.
I had a look at the staking on SimpleBet last night, and realised I'd been overdoing thinks somewhat - their maximum bet is 10 points so £20 a point was too much for a service I'm trialling. Decided to cut the stakes in half from today...you know what's coming already don't you ?! Two bets, two winners and a profit of £175 on the day, half of what it would have been yesterday - I'm just not doing anything right at the minute. It was right to make the change but my timing is terrible.
Couple of winners also from BLSC with Methaaly finishing third at 11/1 and a successful bet on the corners market in the Serie A game tonight.
Three bets from Tipping Legends today, but Chaninbar couldn't repeat his Aintree victory from last week and so 7 points lost today.
Fryboy had three losers, and Nagman also came up empty when Harmony Brig lost at Ayr.
Packed Pockets gave out Sohraab, which was well backed - especially when Hugh Taylor gave it out on the ATR website as well, but finished unplaced. Not sure why the pivot table shows Snowy Morning in the results today - think I messed something up on the sheet last weekend and that's will have resolved itself now.
Busy Saturday, no doubt loads of bets - hopefully I'll be on the right end of things.
