I’m seething nevertheless. Got about a hundred on early, but after a couple of winners mid-afternoon I was going to back it heavier later. 4.25 I’ve got Betfair and Paddy Power accounts open, tried to place bets and got nothing but that stupid circly thing you see when loading a page. Internet connection just went dead. In desperation I rebooted my router and restarted my PC but to no avail, and it was too late anyway by then.
Apoplectic is the term that probably best describes my reaction when I heard the result.
i gave this one on the cheltenham 2009 forum advised at 25/1, so thought i would post on here as well for anyone that wants a bit of value in the race. this horse is a machine and was given very good feedback when McCoy rode it last time. i really think this horse will be very close in the race. 20/1 available with paddy power not sure what he is on the exchanges.
i have a horse for thursday but it is more likely to run on saturday so will keep you updated as long as this doesnt get out of hand and passed on to tipping services that wipe the boards then i dont mind sharing the info. .
dropped to 2 mile last time back up in trip 2m4 today with 5lb claim harry haynes on board.
in the 2nd last (bumper race), i cant really see the fav getting beat but if your looking for e/w value then i think this horse will be in the 3 at big price. maybe worth doing the forecast fav to beat turbo island.
the big one runs on saturday..
sirkeel gambled heavily into 4/1.. needs further again i think running on strongly to
