Hurrah! its here at last! …
Yesterday was the first day of the festival, having just looked back on last years blog post on the first day it brought memories flooding back! … unfortunately this time around wasn’t a huge amount better although it wasn’t for not having increased my skillset.
I started off steady but by the second race that had gone out the window, probably a mixture of excitement, opportunity and nerves. All in all im not too worried as its just the first day and a bit of a warm up if you like, i was most definately over staking at times too which is something im going to try and keep a check on today.
The flasher was about yesterday although i didn’t really make any money off the back of him, something ill try and do today if the opportunity presents itself. I really cant work out what this chaps trying to do? the conclusion for me can only be… giving away alot of money!
Anyway im all up to date on sleep and feeling optamistic about today so im off for a swim down the local pool followed by a big dirty brunch and maybe a bit of meditation before i start! good luck all!
