None. Yesterday’s didn’t run too well did they? Well, they went well enough to a point. Both Fox Appeal and No Duffer were right up there , 1-2 most of the way as they turned for home. And then they appeared to remember their pre race market drifts and the legs went to jelly!! 🙂 Clearly both are not A1 at the moment and race conditions/tactics etc didn’t jolt them back to life. In part I was happy with how I read the race… i thought Band of Blood may do that but there was the odd reason to take him on at 3/1. Clearly Halo Moon was the bet… it was mixed emotions watching him.. I had a small tickle as he was on my shortlist of 3 really, and as per the write up I thought he looked interesting. I’d have been happy, financially, if he’d have won, but cursing not tipping him! Funny old world. I suppose if you fear a fav you should look for an EW alternative, but that would have gone on No Duffer so it would have been the same result! Back to 0, and on we go.

That’s the lot for today. Bar the odd tipping race the week days will generally be quiet as I try and work my way through a mountain of Festival research.
For those asking (I have received two emails!) there will be a special Cheltenham Offer as there was last year, for those not already members. It will be a one off fee, through ClickBank with any luck (so you can get a refund no questions asked if you didn’t enjoy the experience), covering the Festival and maybe a couple of weeks either side. I’m still pondering the details but as with last year there will not be any free content during Festival week…Monday-Sunday. Last year the ‘tips’ pulled in +63 points or so, inc the 20/1 winner of the Midlands National on the Saturday. I could do with another spike like that. It’s usually a fun week. Plenty of stats, trends, micro systems, shortlists, my own tipping thoughts, plenty of chat from you shrewdies in the comments etc.
