Elizabeth Swann came 1st at Kempton and guess who came 2nd – Erlydors who I flagged up as a market mover

Let yourself go was odds on so no harm done regarding the lay

Matsunosoke a great 2nd at 8/1 for each way backers. Lazy Darren was a good winner.

The speculative each wayers were unplaced at uttoxeter.

I broke even as Punchestowns won – there were doubts about the horse but not enough doubts to make it a lay.

3 into 1’s – Nosferatu won – well he had to really at a silly price. Sprosser was in a wide open 3 mile Wincanton handicap chase, and the systems don’t legislate for race type or distance – lost

I’m going to turn into Stan Boardman and Basil Fawlty now and have a go at the bloody Germans – Bayern Munich – 7 goals against Cottbuss in previous encounters decided to play like Bayern Derby yesterday – mug punter acca blown out the water (NOTE perhaps leave out the away teams?)

Well done Derby though – much improved performance – Eddie Lewis stood out as did Kenny Miller. I traded out of the 3.5 goals early doors. I lost in the half time market, BUT I backed United at 2.5 , for a side 1.13 before the off using my enhanced odds strategy, and thankfully they obliged. (I tried this with Bayern as well ,backing a 1.3 team at 3.5 but they didn’t oblige)

Well pleased with Draw/Liverpool at 4.8 -nice, but I was hoping for Reading to hold on 1-0 so I could collect at 14’s at half time!

Reading scoring first scuppered the goal dutch.

Chelsea scored early so the under 2.5 goal trade was an initial loser. For those who left it, Sunderland were as stubborn as predicted. Correct score 1-0 was a nice winner with decent returns.

Luton consented to win – oh well!

Aberdeen scored both halves to get the half time/full time bet in at 1.86.

Laying the Arse at 1.32 was superb, made better with Middlesbrough scoring the first.

Correct score 1-1 came off too.



BETTING FORECAST: 1/5 Crocodiles Rock, 13/2 Valentia Island, 7/1 West Ridge, 25/1 Sir Harry Cool, 33/1 Fortification, Latalanta, 66/1 Flamehairtemptress, Knightswood

SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: CROCODILES ROCK faces a much easier task than last time and the shorter trip shouldn’t be a problem for this pacey sort. It will be disappointing if he can’t win easily, though West Ridge is a relatively interesting rival on his old bumper form

With Crocodiles Rock out, this should concern Valentia Island and West Ridge. At 3.1 and 3.95 we can back to level stakes. I will put my faith in the the betting forecaster here.

BETTING FORECAST: 6/4 Misbehaviour, 7/2 Carew Lad, 5/1 Admiral Peary, Honduras, 6/1 Tashkandi, 25/1 Assumptalina

SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: An uncompetitive affair and MISBEHAVIOUR is very much the one to beat on his recent handicapping exploits. Carew Lad would have a chance if the headgear happened to work.[AWJ]

With a limited field, perhaps Misbehaviour “very much the one to beat” is worth supporting at evens. Ground though is not ideal, being soft.

3 into 1

255 Fontwell – Cava Bien

Uninspiring racing and football today. Perhaps an under 2.5 goal trade on the Rangers Cup final today may pay off. I suspect Rangers will eventually win and the 8/15 will look good.
Perhaps if 0-0 half time or a draw half time, or RAngers 1-0 down at half time, a speculative punt on Rangers at enhanced odds could pay off.
