I put that “mother and father” together yesterday afternoon (it’s 2933 words long), but then sat and thought for a minute.
Whatever I write it will never placate those that cannot take a losing run. One guy has already decided what will be in it. No point in him reading it then, is there?
I’ll keep in “on file”.
Doing something like I do means that one day I’m a hero, the next day I’m the worst thing since unsliced bread. I’m fine with that, really. I’ve been doing this long enough now to know what’s going to happen and when, and nothing written on the Forum will ever change my mentality….and I’ve tremendously broad shoulders.
Yesterday those who were unhappy must suddenly be happy again because the Ratings were pretty good. My top rated horses (11 of them), produced four top rated winners 8/1, 7/1, 5/1 and 4/1 and saw several placed at 13/2, 6/4 and 11/4. That’s the way it goes and I’m certainly not treating yesterday as anything other than a good day that followed a not so good day. I’ve said it before, if you cannot treat a losing day in exactly the same way as a winning day, you should give up gambling.
THREE TO DUTCH – FIGHTER JET, SCOTS GAELIC, ABRUZZI
20/80 – SCOTS GAELIC
EXOTICS – FIGHTER JET, SCOTS GAELIC, ABRUZZI
LAY – NONE
ADVICE – My top rated ideally wants quicker ground and with only three in this field having won previously over three miles it’s going to be interesting to see how many get home on the soft ground. I’ll play as indicated to lowish staking.
TWO TO DUTCH – GALLOX BRIDGE, DOUBLE ROSS
20/80 – GALLOX BRIDGE
EXOTIC – GALLOX BRIDGE, DOUBLE ROSS
LAY – GREYWELL BOY
ADVICE – For what looks a decent handicap I’m concerned to see nothing hitting a plus figure. I’ll just work to my October Rules level of staking.
*DUKE OF LUCCA….+8
THERE’S NO PANIC….-19
THREE TO DUTCH – DUKE OF LUCCA, ANNACOTTY, BRACKLOON HIGH
20/80 – DUKE OF LUCCA
EXOTICS – DUKE OF LUCCA, ANNACOTTY, BRACKLOON HIGH
LAY – NIGHT ALLIANCE
ADVICE – I’ll simply play as my figures suggest.
THREE TO DUTCH – POPULATION, HAMMERSLEY LAKE, JUMPS ROAD
20/80 – POPULATION
EXOTICS – POPULATION, HAMMERSLEY LAKE, JUMPS ROAD
LAY – NONE
ADVICE – Again I’ll simply trust my numbers to produce the goods.
FFOS LAS 2-50
*ONE IN A MILAN….-2
ADVICE – Just a top two dutch, a 20/80 my top one and an exotic.
SUPER VILLAN (Ffos Las 2-15) – straight win
BEAT THAT (Ascot 1-00) – straight win
Have a great day and best of luck if you are getting involved
