Another Successful Month Completed.
Sunday 30th. I think yesterday’s special went well, although I didn’t make loads of points profit, I did manage to hit three winners 11/8, 7/1 and 2/1 and also two seconds on what looked the most difficult days punting of the three day festival. The Betfan special was also very successful making well over 30 points profit on the three days. Personally I think that Betfan should stick to proven performers on these specials as they often seem to be given to tipsters as a buck me up or a sweetener, which ultimately isn’t any good to man or beast and certainly not the paying public.
It was a shame about our THE DRUIDS NEPHEW as he loomed up on the outside looking very dangerous, but his jumping let him down and the Newbury fences are not at all forgiving and he faded just out of the places, our other ew bet FINGALS BAY poor performance was due to bleeding.
Newcastle was packed as it should be on their biggest jumps day of the year, with SIGN OF VICTORY out I have nothing to back up here and my full attention is firmly at Newbury. IRVINE wins the big one as he was entitled to, but in a slow time. It’s out of here before the last and back to the hotel, quick wash and spruce up and to the pub next door for a pint or three and some scran.
Sunday morning. Once again my train is late and can you believe I am chucked out, well asked to leave the waiting room/coffee room for not purchasing anything. What makes it worse is it’s a very camp lisping little man, who’s excuse is some crap about people paying vat on drinks, there was only three of us in there. On the way out I gave him a touch of Uncle Buck and flicked a 10p onto his counter and told him to get into town and have that wart gnawed off his face.
Sitting outside I spot four train spotters just on the opposite side and they are obviously waiting for something rare or important because they are becoming more and more animated and looking at their books and talking into their dicta phones, incidentally have you ever used a dicta phone, personally I use my fingers, unfortunately we have to move platforms so I miss this great event. I am resigned to the fact of missing my connection again, but luckily today they announce they have had the foresight or common sense to hold the train at Peterborough as we are running 8 minutes late, again, and were due to miss our connection by two minutes.
I have emailed out two Ruby rides on my ANDY BELL service today, I’m not trying to emulate last Sundays feat as it will be virtually impossible. KALKIR in the first at 11/10 and the talking horse, which is already favourite for the Supreme Novices ALLEZ COLOMBIERES at even money.
Sure enough they did hold our connection train so I can call my father for him to pick me up from Stowmarket station at 1-14pm.
Ruby is super confident on KALKIR and wins by eight lengths going away. First one up in our Sunday double.
ALLEZ COLOMBIERES runs in the next and is our even money shot and also the second leg of our double, unfortunately he was cruelly pulled up before the third with a possible pulled ligament, but to me it looks worse and more like a stress fracture. So no big win today, not even a small one to finish off another very profitable month.
I am going straight to my Fathers, from the station, as he has successfully clocked up another year and we are all descending on them to help him celebrate and hopefully help him empty his drinks cabinet, not that he needs much help.
Monday 1st. My fathers party went very well and can you believe I was designated driving duties as I had been away for three days, which I think is fair enough, although I did pout at the time.
Another month successfully navigated with my Andy Bell clients finishing November with over 75 points profit and the LATE SERVICE finishing with just under 50 points profit, which I am very happy with indeed.
Very unfortunately we will never know or find out how good ALLEZ COLOMBIERES was because even Ruby’s quick thinking when pulling him up yesterday was unable to save him as he had to be put down after breaking a bone in his pelvis.
I am not to excited about today’s racing, although I fancy getting Gary Moores Favourite beaten in the first, so I opt to back TINGOS IN THE TALE ew at 13/2 and also email out the same information.
I am very happy to see that our anti post bet GREEN FLAG has now officially been entered for the Becher Chase and is trading at a best price of 12/1 making our 16/1 look tasty, as we know it will shorten come race day as four at the top of the market out of five always do.
We do in fact get Gary Moores favourite beaten as we expected, but unfortunately TINGOS couldn’t get us a place, so a small losing day.
Tuesday 2nd. I can’t believe for somebody that has got over 4000 winners I just can’t get him right. That’s the great AP, whenever I back him like today he loses and whenever I back against him he is at his best and strongest and wins.
As you can gather we had a losing day as AP was coming to win the race he fell two out.
Wednesday 3rd. We haven’t had a winner yet this month, I know it’s only the third but if you let these things go undetected they can very quickly mount up and all of a sudden you need two winning days to make up for what has been frittered away.
We are all over the shop today VIVACCIO at Ludlow who should win again today even allowing for his 10lb rise in the weights, so at 13/8 I back and email him out. Next I have been given the nod for one on the dreaded aw DONT BE from the very shrewd Sir Mark stable at 9/4 and finally SCRAFTON 3/1 at Catterick.
Quiet day today and can you believe I think we have found a sleeper at Aintree on Saturday in the Grand Sefton which is the last race. I just need to check out a couple of things and if these stack up I will put this 16/1 shot out tomorrow or Friday.
VIVACCIO gets our day of to the perfect start as Aidan Coleman always has him bang up there and wins easily going away. Things seem to be going really well as SCRAFTON is leading and than for some reason puts in an extra step and unseats three out. With our day laying in the balance we are now waiting on Sir Marks DONT BE and well worth it as he could be called the winner two out and gives us our second winner of the day.
That’s better Bellie Boy two nice winners out of three and a cracking 19 points profit made.
Thursday 4th. I’m on the 8-15am to York for a final meeting and signing with my ghost writer Steve, how exciting is this and than we are live next week. Get ordering your copies now a great read and a perfect Christmas present. I hear the Grumbling Don is putting in orders everywhere in an attempt to buy the stocks to save his blushes. Lord Howie has ordered one to put in the attic to keep the mice away, the GMT ordered one for his Granddaughter to teeth on and Eddie the Stat in hope he can learn something and put a service in profit and good old Simon, who I give so much grief to who he kindly wrote the introduction page without a gun to his head, Oh and I mustn’t forget my pimps the BETFAN Tower Boys, the two Simons as without them and their team it wouldn’t of happened.
Business seems very brisk today and I have no hesitation in backing and emailing out PAIN AU CHOCOLAT 10/11 and ROYAL PALIADIUM 6/4 up in a win double to my ANDY BELLs clients who kicked off their month yesterday with a really nice winning day of 20ish points.
The LATE SERVICE hasn’t had a bet for two days and I get two flagged up to me just before racing starts. RINGA BAY who is trading at 6/4 and PEARLS LEGEND ew at 4/1. It seems a day for doubles so I very unusually email suggesting a single win on RINGA BAY and an ew double on the pair.
First time I’ve seen the book and it looks fantastic, Steve my ghost writer is very proud and so he should be and Simon has read his introduction Page 14 times, bless him.
I think we were all unlucky on my ANDY BELLs service as PAIN AU CHOCOLAT carved his way through the field hit the front after the last and looked all over the winner until just getting caught on the line and to rub salt in the wound the second part of our double ROYAL PALIADIUM never sees another horse and absolutely bolts in.
Thankfully our LATE SERVICE were more fortunate well actually fortunate is not the word, more like astonishing as RINGA BAY is not even on our TV screens jumping the last and trading at 999/1 in running and flies up the hill and wins bang on the line. I bet there were a few lap tops laying in the front gardens as the in running players got their fingers burnt trying to nick their measly £5ers
ROYAL PALIDIUM runs a gallant race without ever really looking like the winner and finishes second giving us a small profit on our ew double. A winning day on our LATE SERVICE and a small losing one on ANDY BELL.
Friday 5th. Not a good day at the office, that’s for sure as we had losers right across the board and I really need to get my arse into gear and start banging these winners in, so we can all have a joyous festive period.
I do put up one to my members at 16/1 for the Grand Sefton tomorrow and coupled with GREEN FLAG at 16/1 it would be nice to see them both bolt in.
Saturday 6th. I’m off to Sandown today and will hopefully bump into Smudger and his crew as they are all congregating down there as well. At the time of writing I haven’t got any big views at Sandown my colours and monies are firmly at Aintree in the Becher Chase and the Grand Sefton, but it’s early days at the moment anything can happen between now and racing.
Free tip 1-30 Aintree GREEN FLAG ew 12/1 generally (already advised to members 16/1)
Well that’s it for another week, today is another day as long as we NEVER, NEVER, never give up and if caught take it graciously.
Back next Saturday.
