A bumper day which really fires the month ahead. A really well done to Bet Catalyst who had a great day with their three bets.I only use half stakes on their bets so my winnings of £ 1303 are half of what they will post. The three bets were a win and two each way bets combined in a trixie. The first Simenon in the 3.10 at 14/1 came third.
This was followed up ten minutes later in the 3.20 by Meanus Dandy winning at 8/1.
The third leg of the bet was the 3.40 with Russian Spirit being the choice and this won at 25/1.
This meant that the trixie was landed.
I only had two picks myself . Both where in the 12.45 called Slew Charm and Gold Reef. A crazy race where I was so busy watching Slew Charm as it was challenging two out that I didnt notice Gold Reef come from absolutely no where to win on the line. The jockey Peter Hatton rode a race timed to perfection.The Market Examiner had three picks and for the first time this week he manged to get in on the act as Captain Americo in the 2.05 won very nicely. This service is now down 9.5 points since it re started.Terry had just the one pick and this came home second at 10/1 so another profit was pulled in.
On the Betfair front I lost about £ 120 but £200 of that was laying the above horses at low prices in running in case they got caught. Nevertheless a big day with approx £ 1800 profit.
Ian Erskine had three system three games that all came through and one FTS game that I didnt get involved in but that was a winner to.
Finally well done to the unbeaten Goldikova who won tonight in great style.
