Having been drifting around in the wilderness that is over-speculative, lazy, pointless punting for a few weeks (salvaged only by a 20p exacta bet on Les Arcs to beat the field three Saturdays ago), I need self-inspiration…
Thus, for this week as an experiment, I will select a ‘simple’ bet each day which totals Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£6.00, and put my selection(s) on here, keeping track of how I do safe in the knowledge that -Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£30.00 at the end of the week is far from disastrous.
2:45 Bath<br>To start the week, a moderate seller which wouldn’t appear to harbour any superstars in the making.
Fly Time has started to disappoint badly, but ran much her best race here and a return to the minimum trip should suit.
Diminuto ran a bit of a quiet race last time, but will be staying on better than most of these and, along with Fly Time is one of only two runners who has ever posted a half-decent speed figure.
River Rosie has run two poor races on dirt after showing distinct promise on her turf debut and her ‘898’ form figures should mean a decent price follows, even if another furlong wouldn’t go amiss.
Cookies Quiff is a debutant from the JS Moore yard which also has one of the favourites in the contest. Given John Egan’s recent record for the yard (including a 33/1 fto maiden winner last week), there is every chance that this is the more fancied runner and his breeding offers some hope for a bit of speed.
With an acknowledgement that the Millman yard is 6/32 with 2yos here, albeit tempered by a much poorer record in 2yo sellers, there don’t appear to be any other horses with rock solid claims, so this quartet will do for me…
FLY TIME (estimated SP 10/3f)<br>DIMINUTO (11/2)<br>RIVER ROSIE (11/1)<br>COOKIES QUIFF (10/1)
12 x 50p Exacta Combination = Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£6.00

I’ve been waiting for Hammer of The Gods (9.05 Windsor) to run over 6f on turf. He looks on a really good mark based on his all-weather mark and has excuses for his 2 average runs on turf this year (drawn on wrong side at Nottingham and needing further at Brighton). He looks ideally berthed from a high draw at Windsor in the last tonight and should make a bold bid.July 10, 2006 at 15:28 #66267Grey DesireParticipant

Not bold enough Mr DJ…
Was at Windsor tonight & made him my nap so lumped on accordingly. Only saving grace was I missed the queues in the carpark!
p.s. My 6 yr old could have called the race better that Cattermole.July 10, 2006 at 21:31 #66271non vintageMember

Thanks GD. A nice start but yes, no tricasts and nowhere near enough in the trifecta pools to make it worth playing…
1st – River Rosie (8/1)<br>2nd – Fly Time (5/1)<br>3rd – Cookies Quiff (14/1)
Balance +Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£19.50 (or +3.25pts)
