Strange day for me. Tennis has been really good this tournament with me making a steady profit even when Im in bed. In fact I think if I left half the matches I was in alone I would have made more money. I have a real niggle though and that is with Radwanska as I couldnt believe she was 100 on Betfair to win Indian Wells. I put a bet in and got some matched at 100 and can you believe she is now only 4 on Betfair and through to the semis. It annoys me cause I only got £2 out of £25 matched and I just know shes gonna win this bloody tournament to piss me off even more. I should have taken 66/1 with the bookies but hindsight is a wonderful thing...
In the mens tournament I have two bets running and both still in it which is nice(fast show pun.)
Fancied Ljubo after looking at his draw which looked a nice passage to the last 16 where he would face The Joker who he lost to in three sets in Dubai last month. So a bit of value there. He plays Monaco in the quarter finals with the winner probably playing Nadal in the semis. I shall see if I can lay some more off. Cant see either player winning and following my home country prediction I fancy Roddick and I might have a few quid on him.
So horse wise today was very positive. I had two bets from Equine to dutch a couple of horses in the 8.50 at Kempton. I backed one of the horses twice by mistake and it won ! I am sure you are getting the picture from my blog that I am a bit dumb but I am just getting old I think! Belows the proof....
Bet Cat gave two bets and and the normal each way double, but again no luck with them. They seem to be on a bit of a losing run at the moment.
I probably had the best day for my own bets for the last six months as I hit three winners and also had two places in Forpadytheplaster at 10/1 in the 3.20 and in the 4.15 Bear Witness.
The winners are below. I am not sure if people take much interest in the figures but Weapons Amnesty was paid out at 12/1 even though the SP was only 10/1. I thought Hills had made a mistake and I was actually going to get one over on the bookies but no ! they had a special Cheltenham offer which I didnt even realise when I placed the bet, so well done to them.
The second Basketball system bet lost last night so tonights bet is the last in the series. If it loses I write off the losses and start again, and it will be interesting to see if this is noted on the next email from Rich.
