A successful weeks punting has put my clients in a decent profit for the month proving the old adage, form is temporary class is permanent.
The Don was particularly pleased that Etaab won at 10/1 on Friday as my members had earned a tasty one to celebrate in what has been a tough month after I royally ballsed up Doncaster.
I’m unique and the no bullshit tipster for a reason I tell you when I’ve made a mistake. Many tipsters (not Betfan’s of course) are as fake as Simon Holden’s tan. Speaking of the orange one his hilarious jibe that my clothes come from the George range at Asda has hopefully run its course. But it did get myself and Penny thinking if all the tipsters were shops who would be who. The Don would be Harrods, exclusive classy and always delivering on quality. Simon Holden would be Aldi, cheap and largely cheerful and Andy Bell would be a charity shop where you would take an old tee shirt as opposed to binning it.
I saw Mr Bell on Friday at Newmarket from a distance which to be honest is the best place to see him from. It was fantastic to see the course in such great condition and the racing was top class over all three days. I would never back Captain Cat again at Newmarket as he absolutely hated it but bear him in mind on a conventional track next time. If you backed him your losses are only lent but young Mr Doyle seems obsessed by having him in last place which just makes winning harder.
We saw the equine speedball Tiggy Wiggy do her stuff yesterday and she is a marvel. I didn’t bet her yesterday because I was in the mind that she’s so tiny the other two year old in the race would be progressing past her. This proved wrong as she showed blistering pace. I spoke to one of the Hannon team after and they feel she is a pure two year old so expect to see her some more soon. Older readers will remember Lyric Fantasy trained by Richard senior I’m told the old man thinks Tiggy Wiggy is quicker! If that’s true they have to supplement her for the Abbaye on Arc day as it’s hers for the taking.
On to today and racing is staged at Musselburgh and Epsom where I will be in attendance. Epsom is wonderful on a quieter day like today and if you’re within the catchment area give it a go. The camber has to be seen to be believed TV will never get across what a frankly ludicrous place for a racecourse it is. This allows us to see jockeyship come to the fore and presents us with a really good Sunday Special.
At 4.30 they stage the Apprentice Derby over the same trip as the real one. Eton Rambler likes the place and won here last time and the Trainer has secured the services of Oisin Murphy who will be racing against far inferior jockeys. This kid is going to the very top and the 4/1 with William Hill could very well be the bet of the weekend. Back him to win because horse and jockey should have too much for the opposition.
Have a great day, get to Epsom if you can, I will be back next Sunday and I shouldn’t have to say this really but ALWAYS Trust in The Don.
Back next Sunday.
