Managed to claw back a magnificent 1.8 points today so ended the week well down. I thought Magnifique Etoile was going to give me a 22/1 winner for the last but had to settle for an 8/1 instead. I must also say that I have watched the re-run of the 4.35 a number of times and I still can’t believe Night Lily did not win – hey ho!

Summary of the trial after 3 weeks (it seems longer!)

Selections 837, winners 144 (17%), points up 43.75

Hope to do better next week on the flat because today the jumps gave me 30 points and the flat/AW cost me 28.2 pts.
