Friday was a routine morning – free tip sorted the night before and after a good Thursday night I went a bit gung-ho by tipping a Yankee on all the flying four early priced races to my subscribers.
They looked all to have excellent chances. The first leg Castlehill Aris also my free trip hacked up and is without doubt a marathon dog to follow. Leg two Frisby Barney fell out of the pinging trap and leg three Shaneboy Ozzy try as he might just couldn’t peg back isheforreal. Then to cap a miserable night Rio Torino fell out of trap 1 and never threatened.
As Craig Revel-Horwood would say ‘a disaster darling’. The night started well though when my friends dog Gilly Facky, who I sourced for them used the pinging box to his advantage and hosed up at a very rewarding 7/1. I took my nephew up onto the podium with the lads who were delighted with the win. My nephew Liam thoroughly enjoyed his night at the dogs.
Took a quick look at Saturday’s RPGTV cards and swerved them. No bets advised. Instead I took my son and nephew to watch Watford v Derby which was an entertaining match which Derby stole 3-2 despite Watford looking the better team. On our way home Angus the dog phoned with his take on the Henlow card tomorrow, he updated me with the early b365 prices and highlighted the ones that were too big! I set about compiling my ante post advice for the Henlow Derby which I sent out late evening.
Always up early on Sunday mornings to see the early prices and to get off to Winston Farm for my weekly kennel visit. I decided to wait until all the races were priced up as I had two strong selections on the supporting card. Dodged the heavy thunder showers to take all my dogs out and give them their treats. Back home and sent out my advice to clients. Lizzie from Cork hosed up but despite ours and the trainers significant cash Blackrose Gold ran poorly. Still a small profit is better than no profit at all. Even better all three ante post Derby runners made it safely through to next weeks semi final.
On Monday I looked at the opens at Nottingham and Romford but saw nothing I liked at Nottingham but liked three runners at Romford. No prices at Romford so I sent out a no bets advised. I then dropped off my visitors off at the airport and came home to find that out of the blue that Ladbrokes had priced Romford opens up. I decided it was too late to send out another email changing my mind, but instead went to my local bookies and watched all three of my fancies win. Typical! Though I did take a few quid from Ladbrokes to soften the blow.
Looked like being another blank Tuesday as Sheffield who normally host open racing are hosting their bags championship leg v Belle Vue and Nottingham – there all priced up but these inter tracks can be extremely tricky. However there was one dog I liked and a bet was advised. The dog is a really nice home bred pup of Dave Firmager’s called Romeo Central. Has clocked some good times round the Colwick Park circuit before scooting round Sheffield in a trial. He duly landed us the back advised @ 5/2 and was returned 5/4f.
On Wednesday I had a early morning power cut but thankfully it only lasted two hours and I had no fancy in the flying four priced up races. All graded races tonight at Romford & Peterborough. Though a couple of Ernie Gaskin’s runners were on my radar, I decided against any selections. Needless to say both of them won. No dramas. I posted out my ante post selection for the Coral Olympic. Otherwise a quiet Wednesday evening.
A bright sunny morning greeted me on my studying of the Hove card which was full of interest with four competitive heats of the Coral Olympic and a very competitive sprint. This resulted two selections were sent out nice and early to my clients. I then set about looking at Friday’s Romford card and Wimbledon St Leger card. My first selection Dinner Hunter was a tad unlucky as he looked to go round handy when the front two tangled causing mayhem behind. Worse was to follow despite my strong fancy Jaytee Lightning winning well, just before the dogs came out on parade, it was announced that the track vet had withdrawn the trap two runner as he was lame when he came out of the kennel. This is very rare and all sorts of conspiracy theories were flying around. So with the late non runner all bets were now to be settled at SP thus saving the bookies an absolute fortune as Lightning was the best backed dog of the day. Not a happy bunny!
Free tip time and over to my home track Romford again we’re going to go to a very competitive 10.11 race over the standard trip. Now the favourite Isheforreal is in flying form, he is on a five timer and he is the selection, though he’s not won in two attempts from the trap 3 box. Dower Matt so impressive last time out though trap 1 tapers enthusiasm slightly and Karma Cause who is 5/6 over c&d but is back after a two month lay off are both worthy competitors. But we will stick with Dave Pruhs runner to land his five timer.
Romford 10.11 Trap 3
