Last Saturday it was the 49th birthday of David Klein. So who is he anyway? Well young David is an owner who has horses in training with John Hills and he is also an avid student of the form book.
He picked up his usual copy of the Racing Post and studied the Saturday cards with a fine tooth comb but he could find nothing he fancied in the slightest. So in a very unprofessional manner he started to look for horses names, his daughter being Amelia and his partner Mandy.
Our intrepid owner David picked out David Livingstone 16/1, Mandys Boy 12/1 and Amelia Joy 2/1. All three horses winning and his £25 treble netted a cool £16,500.00
These are the type of bets that keep bookies in Bentleys but not this time. It also reminds me of the old adage better to be born lucky than wise.
Congratulations to the England cricketers for winning the Ashes series although one or two umpire decisions did go against the visitors. I expect a much closer contest when we go to Oz at the end of the year.
While we are on cricket I’m sure you have all read about the monty Panesar incident where he urinated over bouncers at a Brighton night club. Well the Urinator was fined for being drunk and disorderly and Sussex are holding an enquiry into his behaviour.
The saying mountains out of molehills springs to mind as compared to footballers having orgies in hotel rooms and boxers biting off ears Monty is just a choirboy.
On the tipping front some nice recent winners for Bankers Bonus in particular Posh Boy winning at 14/1 advised price and backed into an s/p of 6/1.
Bankers Bonus are also the current Champions on the Battle Of The Tipsters having won on the last two Saturdays. For those of you that don’t know, it’s a contest where two selected tipster fight out to see who makes the biggest profit on the day with the winner going on to compete again the following week.
I have to say it’s another super initiative from the guys at Betfan and for tipsters to showcase their abilities. So why not give it a whirl and join for this coming Saturday.
There is plenty of racing on offer today and Howies Hottie goes in the 3.00 Ffos Las in the shape of Andrew Baldings filly Cape Crossing. Now remember a few weeks ago I told you to look out for young apprentice Oisin Murphy well he has been banging in the winners and takes the ride on this well bred filly.
As yet she is still a maiden but has been running to a reasonable level. The Mongoose is top weight but in receipt of weight and with Murphys 7lb claim Cape Crossing should not be far away.
Gworn trainer E.Dunlop – After a slow start the horse could not make up the leeway but still seems in good form. When getting away on terms I expect him to be competitive.
Hinton Admiral trainer P.Eddery – Old timer that goes well on the polytrack and is weighted to win.
Posh Boy trainer C.Wall – Landed a massive gamble last week for the yard and is still improving.
Educate trainer I.Mohammed – I’m sure everyone saw how unlucky in running this fellow was at Haydock and with a clear run would have won.
Olympic Glory trainer R.Hannon – Finished like a train at Deauville on Sunday and is primed to win at the highest level when the ground is on the soft side.
Back next Wednesday have a good week and be lucky.
