Could have got of to a flyer as my only bet of the day run brillantly but got caught on the line after trading at 1.03. It was called Nicanor and the race was the 2.00 at Fairyhouse. The horse was available at 11/1 with VC in the morning but as i dont have an account with them i had to go to Blue Square a take the 10/1 on offer.
Nothing from Equine or PP today, and the only bet of the day from Bet Catalyst sunk without trace.The NFL bet on New Orleans is still running after they blew away Arizona last night, but my other bet on the Cowboys looks like it is going down as they are behind 17-3 at the half.
The Aus Open starts tonight and unfortunately for me the Wickmayer bet will go down the tubes as well. Because of last years problems she had to go throught the qualifiers. The unfortunate part is Henin is a wild card ,and with Clijsters seeded at 15 she is in the most difficult quarter you could imagine. As far as i can see that quarter has all the potential winners in it apart from Serena. So Henin, Clijsters, Wickmayer, Pennetta, Kuznetsova and Dementieva are all in the little section together. This means there is value in the other quarters especially in the bottom where the highest seeds are Jankovic and Safina. Both of these two players having been playing poorly but trying to pick out someone to have a punt on in the quarter is to hard at the moment. I will see how Sharapova plays tonight were she is up against the most attractive girl on the tour, Kirilenko. So at least this match will be pleasing on the eye !
The mens tournament has all the usual suspects and i would add Cilic to that who i will have a little wager on.
Anyway i hope it is an entertaining two weeks for us all and lets hope that nobody wilts in that heat.
