What a glorious day! First barbecue of the summer. First lot of burnt, overcooked meat for dinner.

Any chance of this weather lasting?

Today's Action

Just the four services in action today, three of them failing to provide a return and the other finding a very nice winner indeed.

Chasemaster is the one taking the plaudits. One tip, one 6/1 winner (Victory Parade - Wincanton - 6/1) scooting up by 21 lengths. Nice tipping!

PJA NH had one unplaced, as did Northern Monkey. On The Nose gave two but neither provided a return.

Chasemaster: Staked 0.5pts, +1.875pts.
PJA NH: Staked 0.5pts, -0.5pts.
Northern Monkey: Staked 0.5pts, -0.5pts.
On The Nose: Staked 1.5pts, -1.5pts.
Total financial profit on the racing of £62.50.

As has been the theme this month, the sports side has been responsible for turning a loss. Football Elite's one selection today was a loser. Sportyy had a losing tennis double and a winning football bet. Unfortunately the stake on the loser was a touch bigger than that on the winner.

Football Elite: Staked 1pt, -1pt.
Sportyy: Staked £82, -£7.90.
Total financial loss on the sport of £107.90.

Sunday 10th April: Staked £262, -£45.40.
Week: Staked £2,994, -£335.26.
Month to date: Staked £5,617, -£1,116.44, roi -19.87%.

A poor week. The damage this month though has been done across the breadth of the football portfolio, and each service is not really very far down in terms of points. The month is far from irretrievable yet as far as profit making goes, but we could do with a good week this one coming.

Work tomorrow. Oh joy!


  1. Good to have you back mate and good to here Helen is doing better.

    Just been looking around some portfolio's mate and i think everyone is struggling this year aren't they?

    You weren't on the StikeZone bet yesterday were you? Palermo 2-0 up with just injury time to play, losing team down to 10 men, final score 2-2. Italian match fixing of some sort??

    Grand National day was a buzz as always and gutted oscar time didn't quite manage the win. Could have had big returns there!!

    Anyway nice to have you back and we'll see what subjects this week brings us.


  2. Thanks, Andy. Good to be back.

    It does seem to have been a struggle for most this year doesn't it. It's the football that's let me and a lot of others down, I think, and I guess when portfolio 'staples' like Football Elite struggle to the extent it has, it's going to have an impact.

    I wasn't on Palermo but had heard about what happened. I'd say unbelievable but then you remember it was in Italy and suddenly it becomes only too believable, if you you know what I mean.

    Shame about Oscar Time; I know someone else who had a pretty decent bet on it at 50s earlier in the year. He took it a lot better than I would have done!
