Brilliant Stuff

What an amazing ride in the first race of the day at Mussleburgh today. I was amazed watching the race and the Racing Post sums it up much better than I ever can:

"Matt Crawley produced a miracle ride at Musselburgh to bring home Lastroseofsummer in front despite the conditional losing his irons at the eighth flight of the opening maiden hurdle over 2m4f.

Crawley's saddle slipped down the back, resulting in the loss of stirrups, but, incredibly, the 7lb claimer was not only able to stay on board but actually ride the four-year-old filly to an 11-2 victory.

Elation at victory was short-lived as he returned to earth with a bump when finally succumbing to gravity and falling off the winner after the line.

But Crawley returned to a warm reception from the public, who backed Lastroseofsummer down to 11-2 from 9-1, and received a "brilliant" response from his weighing-room colleagues. He explained: "My stirrup went down the back. I tried to get it back but the tack went to one side so I had to kick the other one out.

"She was going well so I carried on going."

When asked how he managed to defy gravity and ride without irons for the rest of the race, he said: "I don't know how I did it - instinct just kicked in."

He added: "She jumped better with me on her back than when I was up in the air - she got into the rhythm of it."

Lastroseofsummer was matched at 1,000 for £35 in Betfair's in-running market"

I have never seen a better example of horsemanship and he throughly deserved the applause when he arrived back in the winners enclosure. As for the layers at 999/1 , oh the pain....

So no updates for a few days as its been really slow for me and really slow for the two tipsters I follow. Terry has only had a couple of tips this week both losing and The Market Examiner is just not performing and is down another £ 225 since my last post. Add to that my own bets which are just not cutting the mustard at the moment and I have managed to give another £300 to the bookies.

I have managed to cover the losses with some trading on Betfair, but I really need to get some horses winning over the weekend to push me on as I have had a pretty static week.

Good luck if you are betting over the weekend and roll on Sunday when we get the tennis going again, just dont bet on this game tomorrow Anzhi Makhachkala v FC Saturn Moscow in the Russian Premier League, in fact I would steer clear of all the games. Some very moody odds especially with the Champions Zenit at 5/1 .
