Very quick tonight. Currently in between darts matches that are carrying On The Oche money. Great way to spend a Friday night. Helen's well chuffed and can barely hide her excitement at being able to spend the evening in front of the darts. She's so excited she's had to take a large glass of wine and her book into the bedroom and has locked the door. It's the only way she can keep herself away. At least I think that's what she said. I thought perhaps she might have said "awake", but surely not...
By the way, On The Oche hit one from three last night for a minute loss and the balance on the day was +£889.75.
4PA was on Proponent (Goodwood - 16/1 and 18/1) each way, a very fast finishing second and had the winning post been ten yards further back, would have got up and provided a return not far short of that generated by Chasemaster yesterday. So many ifs, buts, and maybes, eh? They did also have a short priced winner (Harbour Watch - Goodwood - 8/11 and Evens) and a loser for what amounted to a second consecutive solid day.
Talking of Chasemaster, they went and rattled in another today from their two tips(High Bird Humphrey - Bangor - 13/2). Don't know what they're drinking at the moment (actually, Champagne probably, thinking about it) but I wouldn't mind a bit of it.
On The Nose had a pretty decent day too, finding a nice winner (Brave Dream - Newmarket - 5/1) and two to place (The Thrill Is Gone - Goodwood - 20/1 and Celendine - Galway - 11/1) from five.
No joy for Northern Monkey (from three bets), PJA NH (one), or The Market Examiner (two).
Northern Monkey: Staked 1pt, -1pt.
4PA: Staked 5pts, +3.883pts.
PJA NH: Staked 0.75pts, -0.75pts.
The Market Examiner: Staked 2pts, -2pts.
On The Nose: Staked 4pts, +3.375pts.
Chasemaster: Staked 0.5pts, +0.765pts.
Friday 29th July: Staked £392, +£237.39.
Now, back to the arrers. I have £250 staked over five matches, and so far we're 0/2. A winner or two would be nice to ensure a profitable day.
No post tomorrow - back Sunday.
