Now now calm down the double D's im on about are Davydenko and Denman.
Anyway in the Hennessy Gold Cup Denman carrying 11st 12lb and conceding upwards of 13lbs ran a fantastic race and coming down the stretch looked beaten to me but pulled out that little bit more to win. A breathtaking and gusty victory puts it up there with the great horses like Arkle who also won the race twice, just a shame my money wasnt on it!
Then we had Davy who showed he is not a choker winning the final set against the Fed Express. With the Fed serving first in the deciding set it just looked like a matter of time before Davy cracked under the pressure ,especially at 4-5 and 0-30 down but he produced some fantastic and creative tennis in the final few games to pull through. As the commentators said both players were "in the zone" towards the end of the match, and who can begrudge him after having never beaten The Fed in twelve previous attempts. It was all the more amazing seeing that Davy was in a long match until 11pm the night before and i imagine the money was down on The Fed because of the 12-0 record and the fatigue factor. I for one hope he now goes on to win the Final.
Today started of with me losing £200 and thinking i hope thing s get better, and fortunately they did.
The 2.05 at Newbury was a big race and i had Pasco to win from Tipping Legends and The Bet Catalyst . In the big handicap fields i like to have two horses so if one places it covers the loss on the other most of the time. So i backed Mount Oscar e/w and layed Pasco in running in case it got caught. So nice result for me as Mount Oscar came home and my lay of Pasco got matched thus winning me a total of £575 less my back of Pasco which was £90. Tipping Legends then got the winner that was deserved called Beat The Boys which i got at 20/1 pulling in another £625. I also had a e/w double on Pasco and Nozic but even though Nozic got matched at 1.01 in the place market it never got placed so unlucky there. Punters Profits had a couple of bets finally getting one but that was 1/2 odds on shot so made a small loss there.
In the tennis i made a £100 but didnt bother with any football bets today. Overall about £600 won and thats it for me today unless an opportunity comes along later.
