Well what a day again + 19pts profit for the day !! 2 out of the 3 back bets Won and the other was 2nd – and all 4 lay bets lost – although you should of only Lyaed 2 of the 4 , as the other 2 shortened in price and became non-lays.
2:15 Sandown – Open Day – WON – by taking Best Odds Guarantee we got paid out at 5/1 – 2pts e/w gave us a great start of a +13 pt profit.
3:10 Fakenham – Born Again – 2nd – once again my days most fancied selection came 2nd – thought he was cruising to a win and then he flattened out – really thought we were on for another treble today !! – loss of -4pts
4:30 Sandown – Qaspal – WON – well Mccoy did it again for us a full 4pts winner at 2/1 – profits of +8 pts
And then ALL 4 Lay Selections went on to lose. However only Copper King and Shandelight drifted out prior to the start of the race, Etoile D’Or shortened from 3.8 down to 3.1 so became a non-lay and Shillingstone shortened from 5.3 down to 4.5 to become a non-lay. So a profit of +2 pts on the lay selections (or +4 if you ignored my advice !!!)
One other key factor on the Etoile D’Or selection becoming a non-lay was the reduction of the field to 10 runners – I do not like to lay horses in fields of less than 11 runners and 13 runners in flat races and all weather. Something to bear in mind for future for everyone, as often when I make the selections non-runners have not been declared and horses can be withdrawn right up to the race. I will try to do a video for you all over the weekend – teaching you what to look for when deciding wether to Lay a selection or not, as this seems to be what I am now receiving the most emails about.
