50 Points profit so far this month for my members ensures our profit graph continues its upward curve and keeps upsetting the Bookmakers who would much prefer our money in their pockets, they can be quite selfish like that I’ve found in the last thirty years.
As those of you who read Mr Holdens of the fake tans column on Thursday will know the Don wasn’t full of the joys of Spring when I spoke to him on Wednesday after the running of a 10 point max bet Prize Exhibit at Salisbury. Prize Exhibit was disgracefully allowed to run after bolting to the start and depositing Ryan Moore on the ground. The BHA MUST ensure when a horse does this it cannot be allowed to take part in the race as the integrity of racing is at stake. My members had max bets and were royally shafted. Trainers and owners must not have a say there must be a rule or the game is a laughing stock, the horse was not in a state to race and if no one will bet on our great sport then it will die, rant over we have since won the money back and more and lastly had the horse raced and won I would still say it should not have run!
Yesterday we bet Repeater in the Pitmans Derby at 33/1 and he finished an honourable third, it’s digging out those big prices on horses under the radar that ensures we stay ahead of the game and there will be plenty more big priced handicap touches we will go for in the coming months. You can’t make big profits just backing faves would be great if you could.
Today there are two poor flat cards so we make a rare visit at this time of year to Uttoxeter for their big Summer Jumps handicap which owing to the big prize has attracted a strong field. The race at 3.50 is a real puzzle but I can pass on a huge word for Storm Survivor for Jonjo and AP who must be backed each way at 13/2 with Betvictor. He is a chaser of real potential and this has been the plan for a while. They think they have the beating of this field and believe he is well handicapped so he is our Sunday cracker.
Have a great weekend and if you want regular profits and big priced selections unique to one full time pro then please Trust in the Don.
Back next Sunday.
