3 Bets for us on Saturday, just 1 winner but what a winner.
CARRUTHERS 1pt ew @ 16/1 generally was advised to members on Saturday morning as he had become dangerously well handicapped on his best form and his style of front running and aggressive jumping would stand him in good stead for the race. He was always bang there from the off and he jumped to the front a long way from home and just continued to travel and jump powerfully, I thought he had them all in trouble around 4 from home and it was just a case of his rider Mattie Bachelor keeping him going and making him attack the last few fences.
Our other bets didn’t fare very well unfortunately, at Newcastle we went with CROWNING JEWEL 3pts win @ 3/1, he was taking on the hotpot and odds on Malt Master ridden by A.P.McCOY and trained by the formidable N.Henderson, it was a strange race to watch with Mccoy having the fav well positioned throughout but James Reveley on our selection was content to sit way out the back for much of the race only to make a move about 3 out when the winner and the 3rd were probably 15 lengths clear. Now I don’t really like to blame jockeys etc…. but surely he should of been a bit closer to the main rival in the race? he finished hand over fist beaten only 1 1/2 lengths at the finish, can’t say he’d of won but it wasn’t very good.
We then had FISTRAL BEACH 1.5pts ew @15/2, he had won at Wetherby last month and I am sure there is more to come from him, he was eventually punted all the way down to 3/1 fav and ran a stinker. He looked to have a clear problem and eventually Pulled Up, he looks like he could be one of these that you could follow over a hill and never catch right? So I will be very careful of getting involved again. Saying that he was backed off the boards and might be worth another chance as a big run was very much expected.
So a great day again with 14pts profit added to the total which now stands at 54pts, If anyone wants a copy of the results spreadsheet? please contact me and I will send it over, I did email it to members this week so you should all have a copy up to date?
I’m hoping to have a few more bets throughout this week than the blank week we had last week? I know people want bets and action but if I can’t see any real value, I simply won’t bet for the sake of it.
Hope you all had a winning weekend
