9th August

We had a plethora of winners today throughout the day and evening as well as lots of placed horses, not to mention 1-2s. Few NR or W/D horses too but overall most members should have made their £20-£50 a day target! Slightly trickier day likely on Thursday. So be a little more guarded. Figures arent as strong overall.

Thanks to wing man Richard for stepping in at last minute. I do apologise for not being able to undertake the ratings last week. I'll be posting the ratings until Friday when Richard will be stepping in again whilst I go away on holiday with my family. I shall return week commencing 20th August. I am still on holiday but back in the UK and thus will be able to post the ratings each evening.
