Smart arse comments!

Really quick post tonight as it's Friday night! Just one thing though. I've been having some problems recently with the 'Comments' section. Sometimes Blogger doesn't seem to want to let me reply to comments and a couple of times now I have noticed a number of comments have been left, but after trying to reply to the first, the other comments have suddenly disappeared!

So, if you have left a comment and I haven't responded, it's not me being rude, I promise. I just haven't had the opportunity to read it. The whole function seemed to be working again at lunchtime though, so hopefully it's all sorted.

Today's Betting

Another small profit eked out today. Need big profits to get the good ship July back on an even keel, but naturally I'd rather small profits than small/medium/large/humungous losses.

PJA NH read the 5.15 at Southwell rather well, it must be said. Two each way selections in the race, one won (Crosby Jemma - 12/1) and the other finished a head second (Lady Ann Neville - 14/1). Crosby Jemma actually returned an SP of 14s but unfortunately I wasn't on BOG.

Elsewhere in the racing, no joy to be found. Northern Monkey (three selections), The Market Examiner (two selections) and On The Nose (three selections) all fired blanks.

PJA NH: Staked 1.75pts, +4.5pts.
Northern Monkey: Staked 2.25pts, -2.25pts.
The Market Examiner: Staked 2pts, -2pts.
On The Nose: Staked 2pts, -2pts.

In today's darts, On The Oche hit a nice winner by hitting the right side of the Total 180s line in the Lewis/Webster match with what I though was a particularly perceptive piece of analysis. Can't quite get their match bets right so far in this tournament though, with a half staked loser too. Went for what was the obvious value though, so no complaints at all.

On The Oche: Staked 1.5pts, +0.5pts.

Friday 22nd July: Staked £301, +£49.
Running total: -£706.24 (roi -15.39%)

No post tomorrow. I'm at a friend of the wife's 40th birthday party. Not my idea of fun, meeting a load of people I don't know. I think I will engage my usual intellectual approach to making conversation...

"Do you like football? Really, no interest".

"Do you like horse racing? Oh, that's a shame".

"Do you like a bet? You don't. Why am I not surprised?

Oh, ffs - move on! "NEXT!"

I can be right charming at times.
