A middling day on Saturday with a few decent winners, BBOTD won and some profit made if only following the 1st race of the day with Knight of Dubai winning at Wetherby in the 11.45!
There is little racing on Monday and though Fontwell is still on I have serious reservations about it going ahead as temperatures drop to minus 3-5 overnight.
A day to avoid to be honest!

I think Becky the Thatcher winning at 33/1 (2nd rated in the 2.30) highlights the benefit of backing both whether Dutching or level staking them if odds allow! Several members did just that as my inbox can testify! Ok, not our greatest day results wise, but overall it was better than my warning suggested, so I was pleased we still managed to grab a few decent winners.

Typically, BBOTD loses, though was miles ahead on the ratings. It should not have capitulated so easily!! Still, a few decent winners across the cards and a few really nice 2nd rated at decent odds also winning/placing!

Saturday rolls around. Looks a really tough day. Ratings struggled at Haydock (heavy) yesterday but we didn't fair too badly at the others meetings. Larry would have been jumping for joy had Canny Style won the very first race (11/1) but was only beaten 1/2 length, however in the very next race, Muffri'Ha won over at Newmarket at 5/1, so no damage done! BBOTD ran disappointingly and sometimes I despair about Ryan Moore. Often …Read More
30th August - ratings posted late evening on 29th
Back from my holidays and not a too shabby performance over the day. Several 1-2s came in and though the BBOTD ran flat, we still managed to grab a fair share of winners/placed efforts - perhaps the highlight being Fitzwilly winning at 9/2 (1st rated). I was also pleased to see Rodaini beat the 2/5 shot, Hugin (predicted the forecast) Another Spencer disaster predicted and he didn't …Read More
