Anybody that bet the first two are well in front and winnings will cover next 15 bets. However, the aim continues to be searching for decent priced winners and show a nice profit. I am off to study now and shall post Friday`s soon, however, I shall not be posting anything just for the sake of it and there may be no bet for Friday. Stay tuned.

Report themightymac May 17, 2018 11:09 PM BST
Well I can`t guarantee that for sure, so it`s a bit of gamble he will. I`ve felt terrible the past few months, but I have shown great improvement the past week or so since the Sun has appeared and weather has improved. Perhaps it will have the same effect on him, lol.

He has dropped to 105 and mainly because of that I am prepared to take a calculable risk at the price 13/2, given that conditions will also suit him Friday. If he doesn`t win, I hope Alqamar wins for you!

Apologies to anybody that bet him. Was never travelling well. Perhaps Norton could have went a stronger gallop as he was on a dour stayer. Left behind when they quickened off a slow pace, but stayed on one pace and didn`t get totally left behind. I wouldn`t give up on him yet and won`t be surprised if he bolts in at a decent price, as his mark drops, given a stronger gallop.

Unlucky Mouse, Perhaps losing that shoe cost you victory.

Well done Lead On, spot on mate, HIMSELF it was indeed.

Gambled from 12/1 to 8/1. I am not making any excuses, but that was one of the worst rides I`ve seen in a long time by Marquand. Dropped out plumb last giving leaders 20 lengths start. Pulled to the outside 2f out and made rapid headway towards leaders but couldn`t get on terms. Finished 7th beaten approx 2-3 lengths by winner. One to watch for next time.

The Quiz part of this thread is becoming more entertaining than the tips, lol.

For any younger posters who didn`t get it. The mighty Arkle was universally known by his nickname which was HIMSELF.

The only way that you can win long term gambling is to know when to quit. £100 profit to a £10 stake is a nice profit over 11 days. It`s quite a bit more, if your stakes are a bit higher. Wink So it`s time to take the money and run. Good luck all!
