Day 3 of the festival and it was a bit of a thriller ride! The end result was fair although not quite what I’d hoped for, had 2 markets gone a little different it would have been a massive result.
The 3.20 had Big Buck, a runner im fond of as in the past has brought me some massive profits, today wasn’t to be one of them… The market was solid as I anticipated although greed got the better of me and I ended up turning a solid profit of £170 into £37 in the final minutes when a flurry of money came, these things happen even though it feels a real shame….
The 16.00 wasn’t much better either –
Sraid Padraig price was violently pushed out early on and after a while I was thinking that must have either been a bizarre bet for a large stake with no care whatsoever for getting a ‘value’ price or somebody either way eventually I made a mess of it. After that I switched to Third Intention which proved a fair bit better, just a shame the earlier mistake had brought the overall result down considerably. However if your a follower of the facebook page you’ll know I suggested Champion Court as a back to lay at 14.0 for the day which allowed me to steal a few more quid in-play.
Finally in the last at Cheltenham i only bagged £18 when another huge matched swipped the price several ticks against my position on Cause Of Causes (im sure some of you too were caught), but as a friend said theirs nothing I can do about that as it’s not predictable that someone may drop a big stake in for several ticks… still it could have been worse, was certainly better than yesterday!
So the Gold Cup is nearly upon us! I just hope there aren’t any last-minute withdrawals like Quevega today!
