George Baker, George Baker, George Baker!
One selection, one winner – GEORGE BAKER was my selection posted on Betting League today and he won at an SP of 5/2 (advised at 7/2). Always in command, he won a shade cosily at the end and I reckon his jockey – George Baker – will have felt the sharp edge of trainer George Baker’s tongue!
What is good is that it brought an end to my short losing streak and has put me back on track. As regular visitors will know, since 1st July I have been posting all of my selections on the Betting League website and not on the blog. The results since the 1st July are as follows:-
