Raise Your Glasses To...

Well it all came together today, and for the second day running Equine Investments did the business. Three bets were sent out. In the Wolves 5.50 Dance The Star was the main bet with a small £10 saver on Full Toss. Jamie Spencer held the horse up at the back but coming round the final bend he eased into the lead for a comfortable win.
In the 7.20 Thunderstruck was the choice, and unlike yesterday i pounced when the text arrived and got the 6/1 on offer. It won as the 9/4 fav, bit of steam there !
Talking of steamers 4PA sent out one of their rare bets today for the 2.35 at Gowran Park. It was win only on Lochanlacha and an each way bet on Whinstone Boy. I didnt see any of the 14/1 but did manage to get 12/1 with Ladbrokes on the latter horse. Yet again the analysis in the text was pretty much spot on, as the lowest weighted horse, in a long distance race, with rain sodden heavy ground, came home easily for the big gamble to be landed. Whinstone Boy went of as 2nd favourite and won at 5/1, making the 12/1 i got earlier look fantastic.
PP didnt have any bets today, and the Bet Catalyst horse was, like yesterday only a £10 bet, and like yesterday came nowhere.
My own bets were a bit hit and miss. I had five each way all finishing out of the frame. Last year i had a period where i had a run without a winner of twenty six races. Mind you a lot of them got placed. Today was one of the first times that has not happened. All of them ran poorly and i thought my own selections were going to ruin a great day, but i managed to get a couple of winners late on. The first one below i got at 9/1 and it went of as 9/2 fav !
To top everything off i traded, and laid a couple of horses in -running on Betfair, and made a profit from some overnight tennis punting!
So today turned out to be the best of the year so far with a £1200 profit.
As a side note Wickmayer beat the no 12 seed last night so my bet is still on there and today i have had £20 at 70s on betfair on Cilic. I know he beat the young Australian in five sets and played badly but that price to me is to big and deserves a punt.
