Ploughing On.

The Horse bets today, were on the whole positive. Equine gave me Criterion in the 3.50. As normal the horse was punted in and went of as the 7/4 fav. I managed to get on at 3/1, but the horse seemed to be under pressure a long way out, and even though it rallied coming round the bend it didnt win and finished 5th. Loss £50.
Bet Cat had the one, Obe Gold in the 2.40. I had £40 on at 7/4 with Hills. This also got punted in, and went of as 11/10 favourite. I dont know how this thing got home, especially as it touched 16/1 in running and seemed to be floundering, but it did get up to win. £70 profit.
Punters Profits had three today. Hunterview, Senor Shane and Lifestyle. It was great to see the first and third picks win. The last horse ran a dream and the result never looked in doubt, so another bumper winner for Nicky Henderson. I dont normally use Betfair for these bets as i like to get early prices but today i settled for this. The profit from the bets was actually over £300 but i lost £120 on one silly trade on a race in Ireland. I picked out seven horses today. Four didnt place, but i had, in the 1.25 Secret Stash 2nd at 9/1, 1.35 Davana 3rd at 16/1, and a winner in the 3.40.
The winner was a fortunate choice. Pipe/Scudamore already had two winners at this meeting and i fancied them getting a third, especially as the yard is in some pretty hot form at the moment. The horse drifted before the off and the Betfair SP was 14.5. I didnt think it would figure, but it ran a fantastic race and coming to the last this one and another were about 20 lengths clear of the field. So a nice win for my picks and i shall be watching Pipes horses at the weekend with interest. Profit £325.

As a side note i have been given a free months membership of Racing Trends. After looking through the email today i was very impressed with the analysis. At the moment i will just look and see if there are angles that could be useful to me, if so I will mention here.
