I love Fridays and the day starts with sending off this newsletter with the free tip enclosed. Though with last Friday still fresh in the memory I looked a bit harder before sending out my selections. I wasn’t attending the track however I had to go to a very good friends leaving party. So I purposely switched my phone off and watched my Sky + recording when I got back in. Thankfully I had consumed a fair quantity of alcohol as my three selections and the free tip were all turned over. Seems like Romford recently has become a tipsters graveyard! I can’t remember the last time I had such a poor run of form at my home track.
Saturday morning saw me still in shock from the previous nights results but I shook that off to supply subscribers with my ante post thoughts on the St Leger at Wimbledon which was being covered by RPGTV. Though looking at the competition made me realise how competitive it was. Plenty in with chances.
I was taking my mate Andy to Wimbledon to watch my pup trial at the Don and all the Leger action. I also put out one selection Droopys Posh on the pretence he would get first run on the flying Farloe Tango. Tango turned third got a clear run and took off winning most impressively from Droopys Posh on the run in. All three ante post selections safely qualified for next weeks 2nd Round. The 28.65 trial my pup did in preparation for next weeks Puppy Derby made the trip home more bearable. Arrived home and checked if B365 had priced up tomorrow’s Henlow card but they hadn’t.
Up early Sunday morning despite getting an extra hour in bed with the end to British Summer Time to get off to Winston Farm for my weekly kennel visit. All my dogs walked and are looking well, treats given. I headed home to look if Henlow card was priced up, it wasn’t until early afternoon, though Angus the dog called to impart his local track knowledge and we swapped some information. As a result I went with two selections, the first Mays Dolly was ko’d but thankfully the second Loyal Diva won the lucky last to secure a small profit on the night. We’re still comfortably in front for the month and I’m looking to finish the month strongly. The even better news is that we have got three ante post selections through to next weeks Henlow Derby Final. That should ensure that we start November with a bang.
Monday morning in Essex after surviving the ‘big storm’ which was nowhere near as terrible as the press and TV warned us it would be, I stayed safe and looked at all the weeks videos.
There were only opens at Nottingham as the open hurdle competition at Romford didn’t fill. The feature at Nottingham is the British Breeders Final, a competition which I have watched over the last two weeks in the betting shop. I’m keen on Adageo Bob who has looked the best dog in it and he was duly advised to subscribers as the bet tonight. The race panned out how I thought with the two market leaders. Hadrians Wall led and went four clear and was still well clear turning for home until Bob turned up the Turbo and flew home nailing the leader right on the jam stick by a short head. Lovely!
I was kept busy Tuesday with collecting some urgent supplies needed for home before shooting over Romford for my bitch Dear Holly’s trial – then more supplies to gather, not a good idea on school half term roads & shops extremely busy. Nothing took my eye at Sheffield today even with b365 pricing up. No bets advised. So the afternoon was spent looking at our upcoming ante post liabilities.
Wednesday nothing at all interesting me at either Peterborough or Romford who supply a much more enticing bags card Thursday afternoon. No selections again today. However I did post my review of our ante post liabilities, which included some more advice. I won’t tip for the sake of tipping my motto is quality not quantity.
Thursday saw me go to Romford to watch the bags championship match with Crayford & Sittingbourne. I thought the home team had a strong hand but I didn’t expect them to win all ten heats – remarkable.
End of play tonight sees the end of another profitable month with over 30 points up, that’s nine out of ten winning months in 2013 which puts me top of table for the year so far.
My subscribers landed a nice short price double at Hove that paid a bit over 2/1. We also got Jaytee Lightning through to next weeks Olympic Final advised at 10/1.
Free tip time over to my home track Romford again, where I am treading wearily after two poor weeks. It seems so very competitive there at present. There is a dog however who has taken my eye recently and hasn’t been given the credit for a very good run last week behind Airport Captain. Kevin Boon is a very astute trainer and his dog Laughing Sam made the captain dig deep on the run for home. The bookmakers have under estimated his chances and he’s worth a sporting bet at the prices quoted.
