No, not the gambling. My front tyre. Grrrr.
With one thing or another, today has been rather hectic and has left me with very little time for blogging. So I'm making my excuses like a right wuz, and saying that today's post is short indeed.
A second consecutive loss-making day, but nothing too heavy.
Just one each way bet today that after trying to make all, was unfortunately overhauled in the last furlong, finishing out of the places.

I had to smile. It was only Friday that I was talking of the talent of Jamie Spencer as he got one of TSR's up on the line to win by a short head. I mentioned then that Spencer could infuriate. He certainly did yesterday on one of ours, giving it the usual hold-up-behind-a-wall-of-horses-before-coming-with-a-hair-raising-late-run sort of ride, which this time failed. By a short head! The second of TSR's tips was also given far too much to do to my mind (not by Spencer this time), and was another to finish a close second. Frustrating.

Now there's a couple of things going on here at TPI Towers, including a new addition to the portfolio, and rather surprisingly, it involves the horses. More on that shortly.
Until then, may the Gods of Justice and Karma strike down the unmentionable Manchester United striker who dared to incur the wrath of TPI. I'm not bitter, honest.
