    Thought I’d give one of these a go, as much for myself as anything as a way to keep track of how much I’m losing and bring a little more discipline to my betting

    Stakes will almost always be £10 win or £5 e/w

    Hopefully can find a few winners

    Not a great days racing tomorrow but did pick one out to start things off

    4:15 Salisbury

    Make my day 7/4 £10 win

    exceptionally well bred (by Galileo out of an unraced sister to midday) and ran an encouraging debut finishing second

    The horse that beat it was considered good enough to run in the lingfield derby trial next time out

    The 4th won by 3 lengths at bath and the 5th won a maiden at newmarket

    Hopefully will find plenty of improvement and prove too good for these even having to concede 5lbs to the favourite inclyne

    Fingers crossed I can get going with a winner

    GL FinalFurlong!

    One thing i noticed when having a look over your horse. Gosden’s stats with 3yos at Salisbury in last 5 seasons:

    30 runners/9winners/6seconds/9thirds/4fourths….so 30 runners and 28 in first 4 with +34.47 to £1.

    Granted your pick isn’t wanting to come placed, it’s a decent strike rate!!

    Hindsight is 20/20 so make the most of it!

    I see it’s been heavily backed so far, somewhat predictably

    Hopefully havlin doesnt stuff it up

    I probably started at the wrong time though always do awful at royal ascot

    It’s weird I do better on the flat than jumps but do way way better at Cheltenham than royal ascot

    Managed to scrape out break even last year thanks to a decent double on stradivarius and crystal ocean at 5/2 and 7/4 respectively (put on a week before the race and crystal oceans price collapsed)

    No calyx was a bit of a blow, so I’m praying the ground dries out enough for sea of class or my ante post bets are in tatters. Wouldn’t be much damage to my pocket but would be lots of wasted £5 free bets from the sky bet weekly offer

    Obviously haven’t counted the free bets in my P/L due to not staking anything on them

    P/L -£65 (hopefully that isn’t the same at the end of royal ascot lol)

    Decent looking listed race at York tomorrow at 4:05

    Oh this is us 7/2 £10 win

    Sir dancealot was the one that first drew my eye but then noticed it was over a mile. Hes run over a mile twice and on both occasions his finishing effort is described as follows

    “Weakened final furlong”
    “Weakened final 120 yards”

    He also pulled quite hard in the lockinge, a big field group 1, so I’d imagine mosse will have a serious job on his hands to get him to settle here

    So I will be taking him on with oh this is us who ran a cracker last time getting within a length of zaaki. He isn’t the best horse in the world but always runs his race and will hopefully stay the mile much better than sir dancealot

    -£75
