A winning bet yesterday with our nag beaten by Glasker Mill. He did look promising but just didn’t have the legs against a better opponent. Our horse in fact went off as favourite which is again an unusal selection for a laying system… but it’s a pleasant surprise.

So we add £8 to the betting bank which now stands at £142.

We have another bet today:

2.20 – Hereford – Fountain Hill (6.6)

This horse is a good jumper and has been tipped to win by both The Times and The Star. The trainer, Nicholls, overshadows the rest and with a couple of recent successes for the jockey this seems to be another gamble. Lets see how it fairs.
