Further small losses yesterday but not a disaster. Just needed one of the bigger prices to get its nose in front instead of placing. Today will be the day!
2.30 Had nothing positive about the favourite and only one horse has been given clear mention. DESSERTOFLIFE is the pick and I was quite surprised to see the price.
DESSERTOFLIFE £20 EW 16/1 (1/4 Odds , 3 places) -£40
3.05 A fair few covered here and stroing word for the favourite Mahsoob but at 7/4 I have missed the price so exclude that. FIRST FLIGHT and EDUCATE are two mentioned for place money so I will have a small interest each way there and hope it is another underperforming hot pot as favourite.
FIRST FLIGHT £20 EW 9/1 (1/4 Odds 4 Places) -£40
EDUCATE £20 EW 18/1 -£40
3.40 Telescope is fancied strongly, I have also seen good word for Eagle Top and Snow Sky but will take a watching brief and let this race pass.
4.20 Big prices and this may be the one that cements the week. MOVIESTA and GORDON LORD BYRON have both had decent mentions and are right up my alley price wise shop for best place terms
MOVIESTA £25 EW 18/1 (1/4 Odds, 4 Places with B365) -£40
GORDON LORD BYRON £25 EW 25/1 (1/4 Odds, 4 Places with Hills) -£50
5.00 Ascot. Nothing strong in this race so just a couple of small plays for interest only.
LOUIS THE PIOUS £15 EW 25/1 (1/4 Odds, 5 Places) -£30
BASIL BERRY £15 EW 25/1 -£30
5.35 By now the fate is sealed and this is simpky the last roll of dice. Another hot favourite, another I wll try and get beat and hope I get the one that does.
TIMES UP £20 EW 12/1 (1/4 Odds 3 Places) -£40
MARZOCCO £30 EW 6/1 -£60
Its been a ride follow at your peril and good luck
Nothing good to say come the end. I cannot bleat bad luck it was simply down to choices and I made the wrong ones. The only positive is that these results highlight what we are trying to get away from with the new FTS set up and that is the process of having to repeatedly make the right decisions. It is almost impossible to profit this way over time. A bet is bet because it is value not a choice of A or B because I have a load of information. If I had chosen to back Curvy, Snow Sky and Space Age I have a nice profit on the week. I made the choice to omit them as bets to keep outlay down and it cost me dearly. This is replicated day in day out by punters. A bad week, thanks for reading sorry it did not pan out , I think it is the first blogged big meeting we have had a big loss so we are in front but just a shame I went the wrong way repeatedly. I will wipe my mouth and be back. Thanks to those who posted comments.
