I'm well excited tonight! Placed the first football bet of the new season, courtesy of Football Elite. I'm like John Terry having talked his way into the players' wives Christmas do!
Nothing deep and meaningful from me tonight. Plenty of time for that next week. Another superb comment left last night though. Please do read. It's comments like the ones made over the last few days that make this blog worth writing.
The philosophical stuff seems to have struck a chord. It's now being discussed on other blogs and getting other people's perspective on those is well worth reading too.
A cracking tip today from On The Nose, who went in large on a very nice winner (Roicead - Tipperary - 7/1).
Northern Monkey also tipped a good 'un (Quasi Congaree - Newmarket - 8/1), as did PJA NH (Red Not Blue - Worcester - 6/1). PJA also found one to place (Grovemere - Worcester - 7/1), a race in which Chasemaster didn't have much luck, one horse falling at the first and another in strong contention for a place at 16/1 until approaching the last fence when it pulled up sharply as if there was something amiss.
Also luckless today was The Market Examiner.
PJA NH: Staked 2pts, +2.65pts.
Northern Monkey: Staked 1pt, +3.3pts.
On The Nose: Staked 2pts, +6.062pts.
The Market Examiner: Staked 3pts, -3pts.
Chasemaster: Staked 0.5pts, -0.5pts.
Friday 5th August: Staked £194, +£164.85.
August to date: Staked £767, +£251.77, roi 32.82%.
Running total (inc. fees): -£57.03, roi -0.71%.
No post tomorrow, which will be the norm for Saturday's I think.
Have a great weekend all.
