This time next week the Juddmonte will have been run and we will be well into the greatest flat race festival of them all. The Ebor meeting on the Knavesmire at York. Every one who is anyone is coming and several people who are no one have promised to drop by.
Stable Line GOLD is flying (last weeks column tip romping in) and we are riding high in the BetFan tables and back in the all time top ten. I have plenty of juicy gambles lined up this week for my members but next week is going to be mega with three to four big priced gambles every day of the Ebor meet. I can find winners at York far easier than the Gambling Don can find his trusty binoculars which Andy Bell so cruelly threw into the Ouse. With luck and the tide they may be in Norway by now found by a local weirdo, you’d like to think so.
That ghastly Tartan clad Shrewd Tipster Jimmy Welsh will be in town as well and will be on Betfan TV in a special showdown pre ebor special with Andy Bell. He did ask if he could wear a kilt for the show but I’ve asked for the traditional Yorkshire suit and tie. If he wants to be BetFans answer to Kellie Maloney I suggest he does it away from Betfan Towers!
On a serious note no one can pick a handicap winner like Jimmy Welsh, and Belly Boy is no slouch so it should be unmissable viewing.
Today we race at Newmarket and I’ve got a big priced win bet for you in the 4.20, it’s Crowdmania and it’s 13/2 with Boylesports. Back it to win as he may be able to bully this small field and get an easy lead. He was a good second last time and confidence is high.
Lastly I don’t want you to see this column as a therapy opportunity for me and I know some have sought help after reading it but I need to share my dream/nightmare with you in hope it will ease my anxiety.
I settled down after checking that Wilson the BetFan caretaker had locked up BetFan Towers properly before leaving to head home to his caravan and I settled down for the evening. I awoke restlessly after hearing a door open to see a figure at the end of the bed. It was wearing knuckledusters and deathly white. There appeared to be a playing card in the pocket of the garish suit he was wearing. I closed my eyes praying it would go away and then the voice, the terrible voice said “That’s right kid, I’m back!”
I awoke that morning in a terrible sweat, like a games… u know the rest. But then laughed, after all no one could penetrate the security system at Betfan Towers could they? And the playing card at the end of the bed, just a coincidence, must have been there all along hadn’t it? Pre Ebor week excitement or a terrible premonition of the return of the most fearless and terrifying gambling legend this World has ever seen???
Watch this space but just to be safe… best change the locks!!!
Back next Thursday from the Knavesmire.
