Non Runners

I forgot to mention in yesterday's post that tonight is one of those manic evenings that involve getting a load of football bets on followed by a trip down the M6/M40 to London. Supposed to be leaving in five minutes!

I am therefore going to have to ask for your forgiveness as I keep this post very short. Racing has been better today, but if I was cynical I'd say my cause was helped by the fact that four of today's bets were on horses that didn't run.

Winners for ProBandit and The Sportsman Racing, and On The Nose managed to find Screaming Brave (Kempton - 20/1) each way which finished second and traded as low as 1.15 in running! Oh what might have been.

Football Investor have a bet tonight too, so the results below aren't quite complete.

PJA NH: Staked 0.75pts, -0.163pts.
Northern Monkey Punter: Staked 0.75pts, -0.75pts.
On The Nose: Staked 1pt, +2pts.
ProBandit: Staked 1.25pts, +0.888pts.
The Sportsman Racing: Staked 1pt, -0.046pts.
Chasemaster: Staked 0.25pts, -0.25pts.
Financial profit on the racing of £39.52.

So, not so much a resurgence as a stopping the rot day. Here's hoping for a good weekend. I will put up a quick post tomorrow but it is not likely to be much more than a breakdown of results. See you then...


  1. Good luck with the Sunday Supersub. Couldn't get my wife to stand in as she thinks in pounds instead of points and would freak at the amount wagered but funnily enough has no problem spending any points won.

  2. Thankyou.

    With regards the second comment about your wife, and I think she and my wife have a fair bit in common!

    I think I'm very fortunate actually - she doesn't turn a hair when things aren't going well. I've told her about today's losses (Saturday's post) and she laughed! The only thing that seems to phase her are when the kids don't behave in public! Tomorrow is a bit too soon, but I'll post how it goes from next Sunday...

    All the best,
