Results Catch-up

Just going to go straight into:

Horse Selections

Friday 24th Feb:
Southern State just pipped by a neck into 2nd place = -1pt
Mon Chevalier drifted to 6/1 SP, and never looked in contention = -1pt
Thunderstruck was well backed, but one paced when more was needed = -1pt

So -3pts for Friday:

Saturday 25th Feb:
Dark And Dangerous was also well backed in from 33/1 to 20/1 SP, and ran quite well, just tailing off in the last furlong to finish 3rd = -1pt
Not So Sure Dick also 3rd, but did not have enough in the tank = -1pt
Dinarius, advised @ 12/1, went off the 22/1 outsider and pulled up. Start ok, but never looked right after being hampered = -1pt
Arthurian Legend, again 3rd, and once more drifted from the advised price. No chance with the winner though = -1pt
Estonia was not too far away, but seem to take a while to get going, which may have proved costly = -1pt

Saturday was another blank day, even if we had three x 3rd place finishes = -5pts

Sunday 26th Feb:
Sir Du Bearn 2nd, but not enough to win = -1pt
Utopian WON, and quite impressively, by 11 lengths, showing a good change in gears throughout the race = +2.25pts
Regal Brook nowhere = -1pt

Sunday saw one winner, but only a +0.25pt profit registered.

So a bleak weekend on the horse racing front, and even with the three profitable days recently, things can improve.


Arsenal beat Spurs 5-2 in a classic encounter = +1.5pts
Betis drew 1-1, with the equaliser an OG = -1pt
Cagliari lost 1-2 = -1pt
Crawley play tonight
Dagenham drew 0-0 = -1pt
Hibernian won 1-3 comfortably beating Kilmarnock away, and as a 1.5pt bet = +4.125pts
Notts County scored 10mins from time to win 1-0 = +0.85pts
St Mirren drew 1-1, in what was a fair result by all accounts = -1pt
Jablonec drew 2-2 = -1pt
Lucko lost 0-1 = -1pt
PSV edged Feyenoord 3-2, despite throwing away a 2 goal lead in the first place = +0.41pts

So again, we just edge a profit, with the big winner with Hibs. We stand at 0.885pts for this weekend, with Crawley yet to play, so this can still swing. A mention must go to Arsenal who fought back to win from 2 goals down, although deserved as much. I have loved watching Spurs this year, but just did not happen for them from an attacking or defensive point of view, and how Gareth Bale seems to be avoiding any stick for diving is beyond belief.

Onwards and upwards :)
