Another jumps season has come to an end and what a day at Sandown.
No luck in the big tipping race but they all gave us a good spin and at one stage or another looked like they may go close. Of course none were in contention jumping the last which was annoying. The Young Master ground out victory and that was no surprise – I very much went against him on price alone really – in 16+ runner handicaps I do have an aversion to backing horses at single figure prices sometimes, and in that race I felt I could make a decent enough case for two horses that were twice the price, plus the other one. That is how it goes and given the profits I have made this jumps season that general approach won’t be changing. But, you shouldn’t be wedded to such views all the time. Well done if you had him. The jumping bets have petered out a bit over March and April, one or two nice winners away from matching the form of December-Feb.
Hopefully you may have backed Menorah to cover the days bets.
At some point I will have a look back at the season, but with around +160 odd points (or £3200 to £20 bets) I think off the top of my head that has been my best ever. I will try my best to repeat that form on the Flat!
Thanks this time to Martin who, as well as his various contacts, highlighted the profile of You’re Fired – he always runs well on his second start of the season he said and he did again this year, winning at 16s>11s. Super.
I didn’t have time to use my guide to look through Saturday’s flat meetings and I have no idea if they helped point the way to any winners. If they did help you, do let me know in the comments! One of the main system bets from Ripon came an agonising shoulder second at 14s.
THERE ARE NO BETS ON SUNDAY.
No systems bets and No tips.
A day off for me.
