Thank you Jac, 20 Pounds (I don’t have the sign on my keyboard) are at least better than nothing
At Goodwood I wait for the next one I can fully trust, but to be honest I can’t make out one yet
So tonight I stick to a little “after work racing” at Cologne.
Keep going you two, and Joni work on reducing your minusAugust 1, 2019 at 09:18 #1450155
My nap of the week runs today. I think Constantinople will be a Group 1 horse and will win easily today.
£200 win Constantinople – 9-4 – Goodwood 3.00
£100 win Mehdayih – 11-4 – Goodwood 3.35
£50 win double

I keep waiting for the 2nd’s to become 1st’s and to start winning some of these tight finishes. It’s not happening. Time for a little break :(

I hope all is well Joni. It certainly pays to have a break sometimes, this game can test the mental strength of even the toughest at times.
Hope to see you back soon.August 23, 2019 at 11:43 #1451789darren83Participant

A miracle has happened, the master has returned!
I hope you utilized your absence to gather some new power, Joni
And please think your strategy over to play each and every Frankel progeny big, because it wouldn’t be for his sake, or Sir Henry’s, and at last not to your own to piss away your profits from the last two years!
This was quite honest and undiplomatic from me, and I hope you don’t get me wrong
I wish you well to reduce your minus, as the break even is quite far away.September 7, 2019 at 23:26 #1453141TriptychParticipant

Welcome back Joni
Not the best of days but hey some great racing ahead and the match between Armory, Siskin and Pinatubo looms next week
Hope you can get to Newmarket before the end of the season Joni back on The Rowley Mile from 21st September..can’t wait and it’s Henry Cecil Open weekend with Enable on display cantering up Warren Hill on Sunday 22nd..last time we will see her in UK before The Arc.

Hi guys – yes not exactly back with a bang!! Sun Maiden should have been placed as should Spanish City but the other two finished last! Never mind.
HB – no offence taken at all. I do try and be selective with my Frankel bets and his progeny generally deliver a very good return but it hasn’t worked out this year.
Jac – I’ll do my best to get to one of the later meetings. I’ll keep you posted! And yes lots of good days ahead.
We’ve had 7 great years on this thread (with 1 exception) and I guess it was inevitable that we would eventually have a bad one. Business has been tough for me this year and perhaps that has clouded my judgement occasionally! But I still enjoy posting and, as I’ve said in the past, it helps me keep some sort of discipline as I never want to post stupid selections or bet on just anything (as I used to when younger!) Anyway – we’ll keep going for now and hopefully there’ll be a couple of good days before the end of the season.
Just one bet for today which HB will hate but Delaware was super impressive last time and I think he could run a nice race at ew odds.
£50ew Delaware – 5-1 – Longchamp 2.50September 8, 2019 at 12:53 #1453178
Don’t worry Joni, I appreciate it that you intend to stay selective
I know that you had quite a few near misses this season, and I can say the same about myself
I wish you a good and fortunate finale, and that you can turn the tideSeptember 12, 2019 at 10:32 #1453726
A couple for today:
£25ew Unforgetable – 7-1 – Doncaster 3.15

£100 win Davydenko – 2-1 – Doncaster 4.55
