Just wondering how everyone’s Ascot is going . Is anyone winning ?
I had a so-so Tuesday, good Wednesday, and an awful last two days. I’m sitting here licking my wounds.June 22, 2007 at 18:44 #66095

Mahler got me level today. I dont back extensively at Ascot. One of those times of year with lots of distractions and also i find a lot of races interesting but too difficult to fathom. In some ways ascot sets the form up for the rest of the season for me
Asset is my fancy tomorrow. he has that touch of class and last run was impressive as well as working out well. Seems a big price because of the aussie factorJune 22, 2007 at 18:51 #66097LetsGetRacingMember

Henrythenavigator @ 9/4<br>Full House @ 20/1<br>Manduro @ 15/8<br>Barshiba @ 16/1<br>Winker Watson @ 2/1<br>Eddie Jock @ 50/1<br>Boscobel @ 7/1<br>Binanti @ 33/1
I’d say I’m just about in profit :cool:June 22, 2007 at 19:39 #66098
LGR – you haven’t a clue. Backing horses at less than 3/1 at a meeting as competitive as Ascot. Back to the drawing-board for you:biggrin:June 22, 2007 at 19:41 #66099FlashMember

Break even, no bets, no winners!
<br>Over the years I’ve normally struggled at the Royal Meeting so I observe rather than bet.

My each way bets are covering my losses on my win bets. Had Selinka (33/1), Art Advisor (14/1), Fajr (25/1), Eddie Jock (33/1) and Geordieland (12/1).June 22, 2007 at 20:51 #66103madman marzMember

Big priced place bets boosted my Betfair account,<br>Vortex,<br>Turtle Bowl,<br>Le Miracle,<br>Sapina Palada or something, the third behind Nanina.<br>Manduro for win.<br>And nice lays on Warsaw & Notnowcato.<br>But my wallet is suffering, not much cash in hand left.<br>Today & yesterday put paid to that.June 22, 2007 at 20:56 #66104tootingMember

Bad day Tuesday. Worse night.
House flooded out. Wasit high. Exciting in the moment of fear but rather muddy and smelly in the aftermath. Welcome to Shropshire. Goodbye earthly goods. Farewell Leicester Square.
Missed the next couple of days; shovelling s**t
, comforting wife, wondering how I got here. Just as well, backed a load of virtual heartbreakers. Selinka to win for example.
Now sat in a hotel room in Telford, which is a roundabout surrounded by car parks, wondering how Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£15 per day use of the internet is going to go down with the loss adjustors. Still, ****
em if they can’t take a joke.
Lucky I count my blessings every day.
<br>And have a treble sorted for tomorrow…June 22, 2007 at 20:58 #66105
Jeez that’s tough tooting. Hope you didn’t lose too much.June 22, 2007 at 20:59 #66106WallaceParticipant

Hi baggie – thanks for kind offer. A common occurrence in Bridgnorth I understand. In fact when Anne phoned 999 as I slipped under the waves the lady on the end of the line was quick to tell us it was much worse in Bridgnorth low town.
A clue in the name I’d have thought!
I was in Shifnal – so not even on the Severn. Not flooded in living memory, but within 6 weeks of me arriving – must have been a black cloud I dragged with me!
The house is uninhabitable for at least three months – so we’ve left the insurers and landlords to it. Thanks again anyway. In true English style it did prove a way of getting to know the neighbours.
