Decision making….best taken away from me right now. I’d not be safe walking the dog (if I could walk!), let alone betting on horses. I missed a nice 7/1 winner from two races yesterday because I opted not to play. Serves me right. I was actually laying in bed listening to it on my iPad as I couldn’t get up to watch it and was pleased to hear Porters War winning easily for those top rated aficionados. Those exotic followers were just run out of a very nice exacta/CSF too.
Thank you for the messages wishing me well. Much appreciated. I have told Karen I do not want to be in a hospital bed on our anniversary (Thursday), so I’m hanging on! It’s Aintree this weekend, too….and the Tingle creek! I want to get the podcast done on Friday as well, so no time to be ill, really.
Today it’s just more low grade stuff with regards the handicaps. We have 46 horses across five races, chasing less than £14k in win prize money. Expect the unexpected.
