15th December Results

Profits profit if you ask me and today is one of those days.....After watching donkeys all afternoon I was livid....donkeys being those in human form playing in claret & blue over in East London not the majestic animals the were charging around down in the Cotswold's this afternoon. How 11 overpaid professionals can win away from home, hold Chelsea for 80 mins the previous week but then contrive to lose to the ever so shit Everton twice in one really fucks me off.

Rant over -

Not a bad couple of days all in all at Cheltenham, our 1st race was an interesting one. I mentioned in this mornings musings that favourites have a bad record in this race. Paul Nicolls' Little New Brick went off favourite only to be pulled up half way round the 2nd circuit....if I had 2k in the balance I'd have layed him but I'm only a week into it and need to store some "roll"until the next biggy so I let the old foe off there.

Fasser was my each way offering in the 2.40.....bless him he battled to 4th, decent return and it's nice to see such good value for a place on the only horse in the race that had a tick next to every trend on the formbook....some people will never learn, but that's not my problem.

2.40 - Fasser e/w €20 @ 3.8 + 77

3.10 was the other race of interest today.....Katchit & Mac Joy were the selections, Katchit come 2nd after a very good race, just didn't have to at the end but he's shown that next year's Champion Hurdle could have his name on it.

It was a race that sadly took more than it gave with Mac's Joy breaking his leg and the vet decided his injury was too bad and he was quickly put down. As a horse owner and racing fan, this is the harsh reality of horse racing and one can only feel for all connected with the horse.

3.10 - Mac's Joy (bless him) e/w @ 1.9 - €20

Katchit win @ 5.9 - €20

Account Balance €991

Next time you'll here fro me is Boxing Day to Stephen's Day for the benefit of my Irish friends for the the Kempton King George and the Stephen's Festival on the Emerald Isle.
