Sunday 21st. Hey all you Fathers today is for once a day when you DON’T need a stunning 18 year old beauty knocking on your door who looks amazingly like you clutching a card and a present and a questioning wife behind you.
Anyway Friday was a great day at Ascot it wasn’t to hot and once again HM looked stunning in her Green outfit. We already had three stunning winning days at Ascot under our belt and I wasn’t about to start hiding and sitting on our profits today. We kick the day off with an ew bet on the French raider ELEGANT SUPERMODEL ew at 33/1 in the first, as I’m told she still has lots more to offer. Next it’s BALIOS ew 9/2 who looked a shade unlucky at Newmarket when he was to far back and couldn’t quite get up last time and finally our Guineas runner up LUCIDA who just got caught close home also ew at 4/1.
Personally I get Chatterbox and Geoff to put me an ew trixie on all three as once again I’m not intending on course betting, as they WILL ALL no doubt be shorter on opening shows and considerably so come SP time.
Well as we all now know another super winning day and when ELEGANT SUPERMODEL hit the front at the furlong post I thought she had come to win her race, she still got us our ew monies at 20/1. There was no messing about Sent by Andy Bell’s iPad
In summary another great winning day which could of and should of been so much better.
The party in the car park took preference over dear Kylie i’m afraid and we enjoyed it until far too late I’m afraid as I knew I wouldn’t be here tomorrow.
Saturday morning and I am badly hanging, but comforted by the fact we have now had four Ascot winning days on the trot and are well in excess of 130 points profit for this month, Belly Boys always the man for the big occasions. In context I know I made over 300 points profit last June but don’t forget that was on a 1-10 point basis not as it is now 1-5 so in fact this month is nearly as good as my best ever.
I was pleased to see my column kicked old Grumbling into action as he hit his first winner of the week yesterday, maybe he was getting a bit complacent in his old age because I did notice yesterday he is also getting rather more portly.
I am rather concerned about the very differing weather reports I’m receiving this morning raging from heavy rains from 1pm and downpours at 4ish. As you all know the ground will beat any horse and I don’t want to throw away any of our hard earned Ascot profits. Talking of Ascot profits I gave Gitty a wedge this morning to go and book us up for another trip on the Maltese rock as we will have bit of a quiet time after a big festival. Hope you are all doing likewise or something at the very least, even if it’s a new kitchen or a state of the art Dons running machine.
It’s Hawaiian day at Newmarket, but rest assured I shall not be participating but I will be keeping a close eye on the grass skirts.
On arrival the sky’s are blue and the sun is shining, but the look of the clouds in the distance we may have lots of damp grass later. I have decided to keep clear of Ascot today as it’s difficult enough to hit winners on good racing ground, so I have decided to have just the one bet in the 4-00 STORM CHECK ew at 8/1, rather dull I know, but winning is ultimately the name of the game.
A no bet day at Ascot yesterday and after the downpours at Newmarket I wish I could say the same as we had our first losing day of the week.
Although I can take solace from the fact that I ripped hell out of the Grumbling last week and maybe he went the extra yard and actually found his first winner of the week, hopefully and I truly mean it for you clients not him and not his last.
Anyway it’s a no bet day from me and I can’t get my head round this class 5 and 6 racing after the amazing week we have witnessed and for all you doubters I’m not even dining out on our winnings it’s a quiet day in the garden and a BBQ to finish off the week.
Monday 22nd. Hi and good morning I feel refreshed and raring to go although today doesn’t inspire much confidence. When there’s not much sometimes you need to try and find it, now not a lot of people’s cup of tea I know and as I always say I have nothing to gain, but ROULEAU is trading at 8/15 and his times and form suggests he should be a 1/3 or 1/4 shot, as I say in my days email back him for your maximum amount because barring accidents he will win. Also I disagree with other powers and advise backing NOBLEST, who in my opinion was out paced last time over 7f, but in the other camp the greats said he didn’t stay, we will see.
I have my jolly jaunt booked on the rock and maybe the sun on my head will enable us to finish the month as we started when the sun was on my head, winning. Once again I SINCERELY hope you have put June’s profits, so far, to good use, as never forget this is an unforgiving game and it must be enjoyed when ever possible.
As I have just said in my last breath this game is unforgiving ROULEAU bolts in as I suggested he should at 1/4 and guess what NOBLEST was a bag of shit, so a small losing day.
Tuesday 23rd. Another mediocre days racing and all I have is the Newmarket trained SUPER ICON. He is trading at 7/1 and should be backed ew as his homework suggests he is better than that in this company.
We have our next trip to Malta booked and I hope you have all taken my lead.
With not much happening today I watch the racing through one eye without much interest and when SUPER ICON completely misses the break I have even less enthusiasm if that was possible.
Although he did show some promise as he was running on for a place, but was impeded out of that. I can’t say one for the notebook as he didn’t show much, but he is quite well thought of at home.
Wednesday 24th. Today I am advising heavy/maximum bets on the Paul Nicholls trained TERCEL who won extremely well at Newton Abbot last time and has blossomed at home since. He is trading at 15/8 but as I mention in my email he is drifting so I advise to bet with best odds guaranteed in mind.
Nick Skelton thinks the world of his new recruit APPLESANDPIERRES and I think the 9/4 looks a very fair price so I suggest a nice win bet, also in the same race I hedge my bet slightly as the ex French flat bred PANIS ANGELICUS is well thought of by Tim Vaughan so I also suggest a small ew bet on him.
Another quiet day at home getting ready for my jaunt to Newmarket tomorrow and Friday.
Well done APPLESANDPIERRES as he won for us at a very well backed 7/4 and as all good ew bets seem to do PANIS ANGELICUS did in fact finish fourth.
Purposely I haven’t mention TERCEL because this may not have a before 8pm watershed.
Thursday 25th. I still can’t believe that TERCEL was beaten yesterday, my contacts and I were so very confident. After the race I was very angry at Sam’s ride as he let TERCEL pull his arms out for a circuit and for the life of me I can’t understand why he didn’t give him a little rein and kick on, maybe that’s why I’m here and he’s there, ultimately it was a 2 mile hurdle not a 3 mile chase where energy has to be preserved. Even so jumping two and three out I still thought he was the winner. Watching the race another three times this morning and I’m resigned to the fact that Fergus Knew his horses capabilities and that he had no turn of foot and produced a very good winning ride.
First day of the three day Newmarket meet, with Madness strutting their stuff Friday evening, which should be a good crack and if your thinking of going it’s already a sell out.
Three bets today and the best we could muster was a second on the Mark Tompkins trained MY GUARDIAN ANGEL who made us a small ew profit and as most good ew bets our FULLON CLARETS was fourth messing up our ew double.
Friday 26th. Newmarket today and then in the smartie pot and heading southwards to the rock tomorrow. It would be fantastic to leave on a high and from what I have been told this morning and by who it is very likely. We are having a two pronged attack on Newmarket this evening and hopefully leaving with loads of dosh after a couple of mediocre days.
We are having a MAXIMUM bet on TIZLOVE REGARDLESS at 3/1 in the very first. We backed him sixish runs ago when he last won and I am told that today is again the day, SO GET ON, FILL YOUR BOOTS GUYS.
Then lastly we are having a win only bet on SOLAR FLAIR at 9/2, if either win that’s this holiday and the next paid for, if both win it’s the next five and I shall be booking them up as I hope you will be.
I am aiming to hit well over the 100 points profit this month and hopefully surpass the 1000 points profit barrier at any time soon, which isn’t bad in just a shade over two years, that’s just about an average of 10 points profit EVERY WEEK for two years.
Gotta go now boys and girls be lucky get stuck in today especially on our max TIZLOVE REGARDLESS.
Until next week be good and never, never get caught!
Back next Saturday.
