One account bet for us today.
One of our favourite stables sent out the quietly fancied Oscar Close, 3pt win @ 3/1
The selection was briefly available at 7/2 (for about a minute!) but the price disappeared as our message was being sent out.
We have a fantastic record with our George Baker bets when we are given the nod and expected this horse to be the subject of a big gamble and put in a big run.
He went off a well backed 9/4 chance and would have been much shorter but for the money for Beau Lake.
He was held up in 3rd place, tracking the front two and always looked to be travelling very smoothly. He traded slightly odds on coming to two out but didn't pick up well and could only manage 3rd to the also well backed Beau Lake.
Disappointing not to have backed the winner but the yard owe us nothing and have a couple lined up for the next week or two so we are very confident this will be 3 points just lent.
Elsewhere we released 2 ante post bets for Cheltenham and a bet for the Grand National to full members today.
With Cheltenham just over 2 weeks away and Aintree just over a month away things are getting very exciting now. If you are thinking of joining, don't delay as we are getting very busy with lots of interest in our service in the last few months in particular.
February is now at a close and we finished the month 22.4 points in profit although that does include the 10 points we have just placed on our ante post bets.
We have now shown a profit in the last 4 months and 9 of the last 10 months although a few of these months were very marginal!
The next few days look fairly quiet although we are hopeful of an account bet tomorrow all being well.
Thanks for reading
