I think the new years resolution will be never to leave my blog so badly unattended again!
Its been a busy Xmas period personally and the betting has been up and down like a yo yo. Thankfully the last few days ended on a high with a 3 point win for the Legends today at 9/1. Chaninbar winning at Taunton. Also a good winner for Probandit today with Pegasus Again (7/1). Pity it was on minimum stakes.
Also had a bit of luck yesterday when I backed the Legends bet Joncol £150 ew instead of £150 to win in error. It finished 3rd. However I would have been kicking the dog if it had not placed!
Will double check the figures later to make sure I haven't made any errors. Back to normal updates tomorrow!
Like most Legends followers pain was felt as the first of today's bets, a 3 pointer, NightJar (9/4) finished down in 3rd. However it didn't take long for the pain to go as the next race produced a winner . Mr Funshine (19.93 win & 4.75 place on Betfair) won the 1.25 Southwell to leave me in good shape going into the xmas break.
In the same race Probandits' bet ThoughtsofStardom (4/1) was unlucky not to place, finishing 4th.
Equines' bet Jackie Kiely (9/1 to 13/2) lost by a neck in the 2.25 but we got the place money.
Got to the stage in work where I am in xmas mode now. Cannot be arsed doing anything...I just want off!
Managed a profit today with a nicely priced winner from Equine. L'Hirondelle (9/1 to 7/1) beat off Friday nights Equine winner, Seek The Fair Land, by short head to take the spoils at the 4.05 Kempton.
Not so good for the Legends though. Kingsgate Castle (100/30) might have saved the day if the horse had started better.
Been a busy time what with xmas parties, hangovers, present buying and finishing work off for people who want things done last week. Ups and downs since Thursday but not as busy as expected due to the weather.
Really nice to report some solid profit on the week at last. Both the Legends and Probandit scored today. Two winners for the Legends including a 4 point bet. Pavillion Bleu (9/2 -4/1) and Topcroft (13/8 to 6/4) was the 4 pointer.
Single race covered by Probandit with Glen Lass winning at 9/4.
Thought I had a bit of profit to report today after the Legends picked an early winner,Zazamix (SP 7/2) at Bangor. Their second bet Gentle Ranger 8/1 came damn close to making it a great day in the 2.35 Newbury.
Unfortunately Equine's evening bets put a dampener on the day. Two reasonable short price bets including a 4/6 favourite at Kempton failed to produce even a close thing. The Equine all weather season has certainly not shot out of the starting blocks.
So a little bit depressing after a couple of really solid months...but I am hopeful the quality of the services I follow will shine through.
Updating for Saturday and Sunday below. Hasn't been the greatest last 8 or 9 days but nothing too serious. Decided not to continue with 4PA on Saturday morning. For the second time in a few weeks I didn't like the look of the bets (this time a 4/6 and a 2/7 double) so didn't bet on them (only one part of the double won anyhow). Opting out of bets tells me I'm not comfortable with the service...so therefore no point continuing.
The day started well with a winner for the Legends with Weird Al (SP 11/4) winning the first at Cheltenham. However just like yesterday the lowest odds bet was the only winner of the day. Nothing from the next 6 bets.
Probandit started the day poorly with the loss of 2 points in the 12.30 at Southwell. Thankfully Thoughtsofstardom (3/1) in the 1.40 Southwell saved the day from a whitewash.
With the Probandit tip winning the 1.40 it meant that the Equine tip Desert Dust (13/2) in the same race didn't score. Hugh Taylor again caused damage to the price by tipping it earlier at 10/1.
Another big day tomorrow expected and again I can only hope the rollercoaster starts climbing again.
Updating Friday - Sunday. Last minute trip away at the weekend with the wife. Unfortunately the bets didn't cover the cost of the spa treatments! On top of that didn't get all bets on..or any good prices.
4PA had a rare midweek gamble at Fairyhouse and finally got the service going for me. Pandorama (5/1 - 4/1) was the winning bet with Sweeps Hill (9/2) finishing 4th in the previous race despite having the legend AP on board.
The Legends great form on the all weather continued tonight. Daddy's Gift (15/2 - 7-1) finished like a train to win the 8.50 Kempton. Mirage Dore (9/2) finished down in 6th in the early race at Catterick.
