Kerry Lee Chasers (12/1<)
1.45 South – Aces Over Eights
3.50 Strat – Sage Monkey
Nothing more today.
Saturday… as I write at 7.30 pm it is turning into one of those ‘nearly days’- plenty of placed horses, a few close seconds, at decent prices. There was one 7/1 winner mentioned when discussing a race at Newmarket. Polybius would have won at 12s with a clear run to lift the mood. The stats also found the 4th in that. The shortlist of 5 for the Bunbury Cup found the 20/1 winner- I talked myself out of him. Not sure why. Annoying. And that isn’t the first time I have done that but that is part of the approach. I know a couple of you have banged the ‘just back all the shortlisted runners’ drum. I still haven’t taken note! Those days are both reassuring and bloody frustrating. Close on a couple of occasions to a profitable day. Instead I am staring down a barrel. Always tomorrow and two darts left to fire as I write- fingers crossed.
Another well done to Chris. Both of our shortlists found similar horses in the 2.10 and the Bunbury Cup. He didn’t over think the latter! But he also chipped in with a 10/1 winner in an earlier race at York, as well as the John Smith’s winner. There may have been more, I lose count some days! He has the trends analysis down to perfection at the moment and long may it continue – don’t you go posting on any other blog now 🙂 A very good day indeed.
On we march.
