The best thing that can be said about October is that its now over!
In complete contrast to last October (where we showed over 100 points profit) we ended this month 35 points behind.
A couple of results to catch up on since we last blogged.
We had two account bets on Friday.
Cloudy Too 1.5pt e/w @ 10/1
First time under rules over hurdles this one was fancied to put in a big run after working very nicely at home.
Unfortunately he went lame with around a mile to run and was pulled up.
We also backed Tweedy, 2pt win @ 11/2 in the evening over in Ireland.
An impressive performance from this filly last time out was fancied to be repeated as she had improved further for that run.
She was well backed into 7/2 at the off but couldn't get the eraly lead she required and finished mid division.
On Saturday we had one small win bet.
Elas Diamond, 3pt win @ 3/1
She was another one who was very impressive last time out and had improved further for the run. The 3/1 didn't last long after our message was sent so we recorded her at 11/4 for our results.
Another of our selections to be supported very well in the market, she went off the 7/4 favourite.
She looked set to win, travelling well and taking the lead inside the final furlong. Unfortunately she edged right under pressure and was caught in the final 100 yards and could only manage second.
One small account bet today.
Hatman Jack, 1pt e/w @ 14/1 was a horse who could surprise at a big price.
Fitted with a tongue tie and cheekpieces as well as a return to his favourite surface made connections hopeful taht he would regain some of his old zip.
Unfortunately this was another horse that finished lame, being virtually pulled up with a couple of furlongs to go.
A really poor month is now at a close.
We have at least 12 horses earmarked to run in November as well as one plot horse to pay the stable staff's Christmas bonus money. (Last years one won at 7/1)
We are both hopeful and confident November will bring about a big improvement in results.
