Title says it all.
It could all have been so different though, as The Market Examiner's 2 point bet on The Snail was foiled by a neck after a battle between ours and the favourite in the 3.30 at Market Rasen. I'd missed the 20/1 this morning as I was watching my lad play football, but two points at 16s would have been a very nice return. Oh well.
The other two selections were never really in it, and nor was Northern Monkey's sole half point win bet at Ayr, Bowmaker, who didn't really seem to help himself by running first right, then left, and then right again as it gently meandered up the straight.
Brown Panther had landed a nice touch for 4PA at Royal Ascot, but disappointed today in the German Derby. The other 4PA selection in the race, Arrigo, finished out of the frame.
So another very disappointing day in what has been a very disappointing week (-£438.10). I've seen all this before though and I'm not losing any sleep. Just money.
Waiting for a spark to turn it all around again.
4PA: Staked 2pts, -2pts.
Northern Monkey: Staked 0.5pts, -0.5pts.
The Market Examiner: Staked 4pts, -4pts.
Sunday 3rd July: Staked £138, -£138.
Running total: -£464.84, roi -72.18%.
Now, I'm off into the garden to enjoy the 3Bs - barbecue, burger, beer.
