Nice to turn a profit yesterday. I text an FTS member a selection list yesterday which would have brought up the place pot at 300/1 for a 6 line investment so just a stake of £12 would have paid £600. Neither of us was on, so I am not after timing, I usually do the placepots for small stakes at these big meetings but have had a lot on this week and was at an exciting meeting in London yesterday PM and it just slipped my mind. Hey ho! We still had a good day with the blog tips and I know some of you have a bit of profit to play today.
2.30, King, Log, King, Log, King, Log. It apparently is only between these two and everyone seems split. Common sense says leave the race alone but I have also had a mention for a big price. So I will take the best price of the two market leaders LOG OUT ISLAND which has been steadily supported all morning and have an Each way on AJAYA and hope the King loses his crown.
LOG OUT ISLAND £30 Win 2/1 – £30
AJAYA £15 EW 25/1 (1/4 Odds, 3 Places) – £30
3.05 Taking on the favourite Time Test which I have had nothing strong for with a couple at better prices. PEACOCK I have had strong word for to run a big race ( one of those can’t be out of the frame shouts – yep said that about Ray Ward!!) and also NAFAQA which is my sort of price and Paddys are paying first 4 in this race – beautiful!!
PEACOCK £25 EW 11/2 (1/4 Odds, 4 places Paddy Power Only) +£7.50
NAFAQA £20 EW 14/1 (Same bookie terms) -£40
3.40 We have a daily no bet race and this is it. Pleasach is fancied like a Harry Kane hat-trick in the North London Derby but not for me at 11/10 as I have also had a word for Curvy so I will give it a miss and watch it all unfold.
4.20 14 runners and words for about 8 of them so obviously one of the harder races. I adopt my price principle here so the biggest price I have had good things for is WINDSHEAR so that is worth interest. I have then heard doubts about the ground for the favourite (it is grass after all) and good words for the next two in the betting MIZZOU and KINGFISHER. So a 3 bet race and lets hope the favourite and grass don’t get on! (the racing aficionadi are now closing their browsers in disgust)
WINDSHEAR £25 EW 33/1 (1/4 Odds, 3 Places) – £50
MIZZOU £20 EW 5/1 – £40
KINGFISHER £20 EW 8/1 +£20
5.00 Another 30 runner charge – not proving my speciality as yet. 3 again in this race and two of them I will take advantage of Mr Powers generous 6 places. PORTAGE I had had strong info for so that goes sin but on 5 place terms as 10/1 the winner is favourable over Paddy’s rather stingy 8/1. UDODODONTU which took me about 10 minutes to work out what it said as the price shortened has also had a good mention and also RESONANT which has a nice mention and rates high.
PORTAGE £ 25 EW 10/1 (1/4 Odds, 5 places) – £50
UDODODONTU £20 EW 18/1 (1/4 Odds, 6 Places at Paddys) +£70
RESONANT £20 EW 20/1 (1/4 Odds,6 Places at Paddys) – £40
5.30 I am now either bathing in £50 notes or heading towards the mire. If it was bathing I would be conservative here and probably just watch the last whilst sipping champers, but as we are putting these on in advance I guess it is all in. (Remember those 2 words Chris Jones!). Have had 4 strong words all for horses the middle of the betting. I can’t back 4 horses that is just greedy and reeks more of searching for a winner rather than trying to make a profit so I have applied my scientific approach write the 4 horses down, screw them up and pick 3. Never fails. Joking aside PUTTING GREEN was always included as hear good word and shortening in places, ROCKY RIDER is included as it is the biggest price and I like big prices. The other choice is between DARTMOUTH and Space Age. I am opting for the former again as it is a slightly bigger price. If I am in the mire before this race and Space Age romps in expect to hear of another earthquake down in the South East.
PUTTING GREEN £20 EW 20/1 (1/4 Odds 4, Places) Ladbrokes and B365 have 20/1 price is going elsewhere -£40
DARTMOUTH £20 EW 14/1 -£40
ROCKY RIDER £15 EW 33/1 -£30
Total on Day – £292.50
