Quiet day at the races
The 443rd edition of the Wayward Lad blog.
I took a day-off on Saturday, I reckoned I'd earned it having posted a 10/1 winner with my only selection on Friday. REBLIS was my 1st advised selection since the 28th January. Some tipsters post selections every day, but I always follow my selections with my own money and I post what I consider to be realistic wagers.
Instead, I took the train up to London Bridge and went to Borough Market. After an enjoyable breakfast, I meandered thru' the market stalls with my girl-friend and bought cheese, chocolate, scallops and tuna, and a cracking 35-day T-Bone steak from the Ginger Pig butcher. Cooked on a hot griddle with some choice salad leaves, who needs a restaurant!
Back to racing , and on Saturday we had the running of the Adonis Juvenile Hurdle at Kempton, which was won by Baby Mix in decisive fashion. The Adonis Hurdle has provided 56 of the last 12 winners of the Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival so clearly Baby Mix should be respected. However, later on the card at Kempton GRUMETI won his "prep" race for the Triumph in similar fashion and he is rightfully at the head of the market at 5/1.
Just the one jumps meeting in the UK today, at my local track of Plumpton. We had a very bright and sunny weekend here on the South downs, but we also had some heavy showers; so I'm expecting the ground at Plumpton to have a few soft patches. The opening race sees syndicate horse Chilworth Lass at the track again. I must admit, I can't see her winning this at the morning fav for the race HAWKHILL looks very strong and I'm surprised he's as long as 11/4 (Bet365 and Blue Square). Alan King has done well at Plumpton this season and his Kings Bayonet looks the most likely to trouble the fav. I'm hoping for another good run from Chilworth Lass, but she may be run out of the places.
Friday provided another successful trade on Betfair (it was a back-to-lay on Reblis, who I also had a separate wager on at 10/1 with William Hill). The "trading" record since 1st January is now: 32 trades / 19 "wins" / 7 "losses" / 6 "trade-outs"; the ROI stands at +53.50%.
