Short blog - too much to drink.
Like yesterday, PJA NH had just the one bet, but unlike yesterday, this one never threatened to add some cash to the coffers.
ProBandit the only service to perform as one would wish, finding the winner of the one race played in (Collect Art - Bath - 15/8).
Winning Racing Tips have epitomised the month as a whole - a great start promising exciting times, and then a slump. They're finding it difficult to get one to place at the moment. Neither of today's two selections did.
Laying...mmm. Chasemaster gave Farmer Frank each way today (Towcester - 10/1) and that horse came second. Trouble is, we got a later message advising a lay of Home. About two out, it was between the two. Now I don't claim to be a great race-reader, but even to my untrained eye McCoy was sitting motionless on Home whilst the seven pound claimer on ours was all arms and legs - a frog in a blender if you like. The writing was on the wall. Not to worry - a far from disastrous loss for the service which has been superb recently, and these things will happen. It just kinda sums things up at the moment, though.
Fingers crossed for a decent weekend.

Right. I'm going to take some paracetamol and a huge glass of water. I'm gonna look that hangover right in the eye, and laugh. Oh yes. Pre-emptive strike they call it. Wish me luck.
