Well bugger. I committed the ultimate sin on Saturday and missed a qualifier- that won. One Taquin Du Seuil clearly qualified on the Jonjo distance angle – and given I posted his other qualifier on the same angle in the same race I don’t know what went through my mind to miss him. Human error, as simple as that, and I can only apologise- especially if you take a systematic approach to all qualifiers, I have ‘cost you’ 8-10 points there, so sorry.
I don’t know what I would have done with him had I actually posted him up- I suspect I would have put him in the maybe pile and would have only had a go at 8s, once i saw Jonjo’s two horses run crackers in the race before. I have dodged more losers in the last two days than his win would have won me but I know many of you may have backed him if posted, or have considered it at least. Anyway, that is done. I will try my best not to do that again. A clunker. Permission to be annoyed.
Still, if backing all those posted systematically, 1 point on the nose, you would be around +9 points up on the day, depending on the odd best price etc. 3 winners at 12/1, 5/1 and 10/1 were not a bad return and claws back some of the losses. I will update results early next week as usual and hopefully we can end it on a high. Clearly It would be wrong of me to include TDS in my official results and he wont be.
Just the qualifiers on this ‘bonus day’… I don’t think I have missed anything…
