I'm going to ruin my Monday by having a decent bet on this one.
Not the strongest of fields but he was quite impressive and is the first to go in my tracker this year. Much more to come.
Switching to football tomorrow with 3 much smaller (fun) bets
Spurs v Ajax
Eriksen to score from outside the box @ 8/1
Wanyama to score from outside the box @ 40/1
Llorente to score a header, Ajax to score a penalty @ 50/1
Great shout with Bowerman mate
Back to the horses..
4.10 Pont - MUTARAKEZ @ 7/2
Won this last year off 4lb higher. A slight positive is this looks a little easier, a slight negative is last yrs win was on soft. Has ran ok on G/Firm though as proven with decent 2nd after a break 11 days ago.
7.35 Bath - FRANCOPHILIA @ 5/1
Risky after big disappointment at Chelmsford 55 days ago, but back on turf at a track where she has finished 2nd before.
7.45 Punc - GYPSY ISLAND @ 8/5
Very impresive 11 lth winner three weeks ago. This looks tougher but she could be some mare in the making.
Singles with small trixie. Betfair.
Win or each way singles and a small e/w Heinz at Punchestown tomorrow.
3.40 DROP THE ANCHOR @ 7/1
4.15 DONT TOUCH IT @ 16/1
5.30 UNOWHATIMEANHARRY @ 12/1
6.05 KILFENORA @ 33/1
6.40 DUC DES GENIEVRES @ 2/1
7.15 EMILY MOON @ 9/1
Chancing a couple of English raiders tomorrow...
4.20 - LOUIS' VAC POUCH @ 8/1
4.55 - CARNSPINDLE @ 20/1
EW Singles and a small win double
3.00 Curr - I AM SUPERMAN @ 9/4
I put this one in my tracker just last week. Progressing nicely, over came a wide draw to win by 5 lths, with relative ease..
This is tougher and i'm a bit gutted that i missed the 4/1 earlier. Small bet.
SHALIR and PIANO SONG at 8's and 20's respectively.
Not sure what happened with I AM SUPERMAN, looked the winner a furlong out, getting to the front, then looked as though it lost all rhythm?
I've got both football and horse bets later..
Liv v Barca - request a bet
Over 1.5 goals, 5+ Liverpool corners, 3+ Barcelona corners and 10+ booking points each team @ 15/8 Skybet.
3.00 Ayr - BLAKERIGG @ 4/1 (win)
6.00 Wol - PERCEIVED @ 9/1 (win)
8.00 Wol - MARGARET J @ 50/1 (e.w)
+ small e.w trixie. Bet Victor
Football bet was landed on 54 minutes and MARGARET J was placed at 50/1.
BLAKERIGG was also placed @ 11/2 for small trixie purpose. Annoyingly, PERCEIVED was just pipped for a place.
On De Sousa's 4 at Chelmsford tomorrow night.
6.30 - VIVIONN @ 11/4
7.00 - FOX PREMIER @ 7/1
8.00 - FOX MAFIA @ 7/1
8.30 - ZAMJAR @ 9/4
Win singles, plus Yankee.
6.30 - VIVIONN @ 11/4 - WON (R4)
7.00 - FOX PREMIER @ 7/1 - WON
8.00 - FOX MAFIA - N/R
8.30 - ZAMJAR - UNPL
FOX PREMIER could be worth following again, won nicely.
That'll do for the nags this week. I'm away for 5 days now. I have chanced one football match over the weekend (Sunday).
AJAX v UTRECHT
UTRECHT +2 @ 6/4
UTRECHT or DRAW @ 4/1
UTRECHT to win 0-1 @ 66/1
UTRECHT to win 1-2 @ 40/1
My thinking. Ajax are still in a title race (level on points, two games to go), i'm sure they will want to bounce back from last night. They may well do.
But they looked well tired on 70 minutes, never mind 90. And they were at home.
It must take some coming back from, that defeat. I'm not sure how up for it they'll be. Half of them are likely to be sold on to bigger, this summer. One or two may have already secured deals. So how is their motivation still?
Utrecht have had a decent season, finishing in the play offs. It's still possible for them to finish 4th.
I'm not confident by any means, just small stakes, staked accordingly. Though i do think the 6/4 looks slightly big.
Excellent Punt, well done mate
Excellent Punt, well done mate
Things going well for you on all fronts by the look of things mate
Great result a Leeds, ODM!
UTRECHT got me a little excited with an early lead but let me down, losing 4-1
I've looked at a couple of races tomorrow, just for a small bet.
TOMMY TAYLOR @ 9/1
SAAHEQ @ 10/1
GARRUS @ 9/2
WELL DONE FOX @ 15/2
Win singles, e.w doubles.
Would of showed a small profit but for the R4, 35p in the £. Small loss.
Couple of punts today..
KAHALEESI @ 7/1
NICE TO SEA @ 9/1
Split, level stakes
KAREENA KAPOOR @ 13/8
I'm going to be betting less frequently on the horses over the summer months.
I do have 5 in my tracker that i'll be looking out for but i'm kind of edging with any spare betting money to be put on ante post football bets over this period.
The 5 i have in my tracker are
I AM SUPERMAN
There is one other horse i'll be looking out for as i've just bought my first ever share in a racehorse. Not much of a share as there are 3000 shares in it....
Obviously treating this as fun as it's impossible to make any sort of prize money out of it, but for a £49 one off payment and the fact it's named after my home town MALVERN, i couldn't resist.
Although there are a few benefits, i guess it's on par with adopting a Snow Leopard for £3 a month. All you really get is a cuddly toy and a monthly magazine etc. Only difference being, you cant slap a Snow Leopard on the neck and say "well done boy"
I'll keep you informed.
I've used a free skybet in the 8.00 at Ballinrobe. THE GATECHECKER @ 25/1 - 5 places.
Inform Joc, 5 places appealing.
Saturday, CL Final - FABINHO 1st goal scorer @ 30/1, each way (1/3 odds, 5 places).
Big player, big odds. Small bet.
5/2 fav. Tougher race this though. Small bet only
