One selection - one winner @ 5/1
Just the one selection yesterday, MULDOONS PICNIC and he came home at the great odds of 5/1. I think he'd have won despite the fallers in the race and the fact that his odds lengthened from the 4/1 in the morning (even tho' there was a non-runner in the race and he had only 3 rivals) was a gift.
This is why an alert system - filled with horses that I have selected on merit - pays its way. I had faith that my selection could jump and stay the trip. The only doubt was the going but, with the trainer being Kim Bailey who has won the Cheltenham Gold Cup, Champion Hurdle and Grand National; there was nothing to worry about. If Kim Bailey thought the ground was good enough for his horse to race on, then his opinion was good enough for me.
Unfortunately, De Blacksmith was a non-runner in his race but I'm sure he'll be running soon.
So, we go forward with a bank of £2,121.60 after MULDOONS PICNIC added another £50 to the pot, meaning we have made a profit of £121.60 since 30th September from just £90 staked on 6 wagers.
Today, we have a meeting at Wetherby with the Bobby Renton chsde over 2m4f. This looks a tricky race to fathom, but we have an alert horse running, NO PLANNING from Mrs Sue Smiths stable. This horses best trip is 2m4f, so ignore his efforts over further last season. No doubt, he is better than OR126 and I'm expecting a good show from this horse today. I thought he'd be about 6/1 for this, so 10/1 (BetVictor) looks very good value. There are just 8 runners so I hope they all go to post, and an ew wager is recommended.
Wetherby 3:55, NO PLANNING, £5 ew @ 10/1 with BetVictor who go BOG and 5th odds a place 1, 2, 3.
