Our successful month at Stableline Gold continues as we push the profits up higher much to the Bookmakers annoyance and much to the delight of our loyal band of members.
Since we started just over a year ago anyone placing a hundred pounds on each selection would now be and are actually in many cases £4,200 pounds richer for two minutes work four or five times a week. Real profits not hype genuine bookmaker cash in your pocket and as we head into the services second year I intend to crank it up further with a host of new informants across the length and breadth of this country.
It was while meeting a new snout at Fakenham on Tuesday (he’s signed up and ready to rumble) that I inadvertently attended a mini BetFan Summit as who should be seen lurking by the Paddock than the Gambling Don and who should be seen lurking in the Owners Bar than his nemesis Andy Bell he of the amusing diary ramblings.
The Don as cheery as ever greeted me with not you as well which is lovely after a long drive South and spent the rest of the afternoon grilling me as to the identity of my new snout. Much to my amusement the source was actually stood next to them in the bar as they had a furious row over who was the best Trainer in Newmarket. I had hoped peace would break out but it looks less likely than ever, thankfully there are no rivers in Fakenham so the Dons binoculars remained dry though I have noticed he grips them incredibly tightly when Mr Bell is in attendance.
AP turned up for one ride took an almighty fall at the last got up limped for ten seconds, grimaced then shot off. It wasn’t the time for autograph hunters to approach and he left the course quickly. Just another day and I spoke with one of the tracks great characters Kevan Minter AKA The Colonel in the press room and we marvelled how tough AP is.
I then had a chance to spend a few minutes with Thommo as he shamelessly flogged his book between commentating at times bizzarely. Over the years Thommo has had to face terrible criticism some of it of a highly personal and vitriolic nature, I should know I’ve written most of it. I have to say though he was in fine form as Bell and the Don looked on mockingly as we posed for photos. If you have a racing fan in your life then buy it them for Xmas it’s a funny and at times moving read. I must admit I had a tear in my eye myself as Thommo said “That will be twenty quid big fella.”
So we all went our separate ways AP in a huff, Thommo with Bob Champion in tow and a cardboard box half full of books telling me to give his best wishes to the DevilFish (arguably the second meanest man in the uk after Thommo himself). The Don and Andy Bell rowing and saying they were glad one was at Haydock and the other one was at Ascot on Saturday. And yours truly with a new snout signed up and my dads Xmas present sorted (after I’ve read it of course).
Do I love my job? What do you think! Join me at Stable Line Gold because the best just got even better as Thommo would say and did say continuously. (big fella. I lov it. Ho oh ho)
Back next Thursday.
