Bring On The Flat!


Well now that Cheltenham is done and dusted we can all look forward to the upcoming flat season and the dream of untold riches! I had a few cracking days last year and I'm sure that if the conditions are similar (re: Betfair liquidity and action) then this year should be even better!


Accordingly I searched for a picture of 'flat jockeys' which resulted in this ...




Hey ho such is life (and fuck me surely he could have 'warmed-up a bit, if you catch my drift). Must have been fucking freezing when he had this pic taken ...



09/03

+£86.19. I negelected to update my blog for a few days so can't remember any specifics ...





10/03

+£79.19. Won @ Cheltenham and lost @ Wolves ... no fucking surprise there then ....





11/03

+£181.08. Back in the days of the exchange we used to call this an 'Eric' ...




... (as in Eric Bristow one huuundered and eeeeightyyy!!!) ...






12/03

+£102.50. I think that I can honestly say that I'm struggling at Chelmsford ...





13/03

-£13.38. It's particularly annoying when you fail to make the most of a Friday as this is usually one of the better days of the week in which to make some cash ...





14/03

-£17.15. So there I was chugging along on an unremarkable Saturday and edging slowly towards 3 figures and then I knocked-out £100+ in the penultimate race .... what a nob! ...






15/03

Mothers Day today so I popped over to see my Dad!



16/03

-£7.64. Taunton, Southwell and Chelmsford today .....enough said ...




The highlight of the day was buying a leg of lamb from Asda @ £3.97 per kilo ...



 

17/03

+£67.07. It took me until about 16:00 to realise why there was so much Irish racing on today
and why Wexford was packed to the rafters ...










18/03

+£79.95. Only two losses today but not in the much of winnings either ...





19/03

+£72.84. Another day of mediocreness (is that a word?)...





20/03

+£108.31. One of those days where a few small wins managed to get me into 3 figure territory ...











21/03

+£19.38. Pants Sunday ...





22/03

+£113.30. Thank fuck for the last race @ Downpatrick ...




 
23/03

+£31.84. Towcester, Taunton & Wolves = my worst nightmare!





24/03

+£13.87. And I thought that yesterday was bad ...





25/03

+£62.92. No losses today but once again my winnings were minimal ...





26/03

+£80.80. I must admit that I've had a couple of days recently where I've been bored shiteless ...





27/03

+£119.66. A good horse note got me a nice win for a relatively small stake in one of the early races @ Dundalk and that kind of made the day ...




28/03

+£61.76. The flat season started today and it was a bit of a poor effort for a Saturday, However, I didn't give a toss as I was out in the evening on the piss and watching my eldest son's gorgeous and talented girlfriend sing in a local boozer accompanied by her old man on the guitar. Plenty of alcohol was consumed and it was a great night!







29/03

+£87.53. Pants for most of the day and then nicked £50 in the last @ good old Limerick!






30/03

+£20.43. I was trundling towards three figure territory and then knocked-out £60 on that ponce of a horse that turned sharp left at the start ...






31/03

+£70.84. My first day of trading with my new teeth! I thought that they might give me extra powers but unfortunately not ...

I Don't Give a Toss About Cheltenham!


Yep call me idiot or whatever but the upcoming Cheltenham meeting just doesn't get my juices flowing. I don't follow the form as such and I don't even have a clue who is running. To be honest I'm not really a fan of horse racing itself but I am a fan of trading horse races. So for me the only thing that Cheltenham means is that the flat season is coming!



01/03

+£273.18. I wasn't going anywhere today .... until the last race! The ironic thing is that I should have taken a £500+ green but I was a bit dis-organised in entering my exit trades. So although I won a nice amount I was a bit pissed-off that didn't fully exploit the opportunity.






02/03

-£41.33. This loss got on my tits! It put a tiny dent in yesterday's profit but if I had cashed-in on the £500+ yesterday then it would have been a miniscule dent ...




 
03/03

+£49.45. A pants day but at least it covered yesterday's losses ...





 04/03

+£160.45. It wasn't a bad result today, especially as I was £130+ down after a few races ... so a nice recovery indeed ...



 
It's no surprise that my results on Sun - Tue are usually pretty crap because the racing is limited and usually pants. Additionally my results on the ATR tracks can also be shite because of the fucking delay in pic speed and the thieving track and fast pic boys.  



05/03

The racing took a back seat today as I ventured down to Leigh-on-Sea for a day out with my lovely wife. We had a few beers and a bite to eat and then shuffled along the promenade towards Southend. It was quite a tranquil evening and we had a really good day, which was about to get better, as I had 2 tickets for 'The Australian Pink Floyd' hidden in my pocket (unknown to the missus). They're a superb tribute band and it was a fucking brilliant night!

Spot the looney (that's me in the New Zealand shirt) in the front row ...


 


06/03

+£284.51. Today was one of those days where my general trading was pretty pants. However, I managed to get a couple of decent wins which pretty much made the day ...





07/03

-£63.13. I backed a horse that then fell in one of the early races and lost £90 and then didn't really get going for the rest of the day so the end result was a bit of a disapointment ...






08/03

+£59.44. I was a bit more involved today but as you can see the results just didn't come along so it was a case of getting back what I lost yesterday ...
