It was a cracker of a weekend with Al Ferof winning at a nice big price, plus some others coming in a decent prices too.
My double came up too which was great. Those 'both teams to score' bets have been going great for me lately - I was put on to them by a friend, Tony, who is good at football betting. Focusing on the top six or so in the Premier League and then being selective with the bets is paying off so far. Might start looking a bit more serious at it as up until now, I've just been throwing a few ponies here and there in the bookies to pay for a night out or whatever. But it's going quite well and I'm going to look into it further.
No bets on the formstudy or the handicaps today although the favourites strategy has one qualifier. It's as short as 2/5 however, so no-one's going to be retiring on this just yet. Here's Timeform's comments.
1.20 Plumpton - Broadbackbob
Useful novice hurdler last term, winning first 2 starts, and improved
again to finish second in Grade 2 at Cheltenham in January. Type to take
high rank amongst this season's novice chasers.
Nothing much doing on the financial front either, we had a bounce on Friday in the end but whether or not that continues this week remains to be seen. I sometimes find Monday a tricky day to trade as everyone is cautious, waiting to see what piece of news is going to push the market. Think I'll leave it for today.
