Saturday 16th March
Cheltenham may be over, but a profit is a profit wherever it is gained.
Just one tip from Northern Monkey, but it was certainly a case of quality over quantity (Ladies Are Forever - Lingfield - 10/1). Great stuff!
It is a symptom of the current form of On The Nose that when he now bangs in two from three, including one at 9s, it's seen as simply another day at the office (well it's not quite, but you know where I'm coming from). Amazing how quickly you can get used to winning (Hunter's Lodge - Uttoxeter - 11/4 and Big Occasion - Uttoxeter - 9/1).
A small profit for 4PA, as a winner is found from four bets (Farraaj - Lingfield - 15/8).
No joy with a small each way double from Winning Racing Tips.
As for the sports, it was a superb day for Football Elite, finding four lovely winners from six bets (and one of the losers was Swansea to beat Arsenal, so all is good there!). The winners were Everton to bt Man City at 3.78, Nuremburg to bt Schalke at 3.18, Southampton to bt Liverpool at 4.08, and Getafe to bt Atletico Bilbao at 2.44. Quality tipping.
Skeeve (doubles) had a decent day too, with the smaller long-priced double coming in comfortably (Mansfield to bt Forest Green and Hyde to bt Dartford at 5.98), as did the larger double that became a larger single as the second leg was postponed (Kidderminster to bt Tamworth at 1.5).
A profit for The Football Analyst 7/22 on what ended a frustrating day. The winner (Braintree (DNB) vs Stockport County at 1.909) made for comfortable watching for me and my lad at Edgeley Park as the result was really never in doubt, but the other match which returned stakes should have brought more profit. Crawley were 2-0 up going into the 91st minute against Walsall, yet somehow ended up drawing!
A small profit too for Sportyy which found one winner from two (Over 2.5 goals in the Real Sociedad/Valladolid match at 2.01).
A Saturday to forget though for Summer Of Football (0/5).
