Taking time out

Very enjoyable two days at York ,a great racecourse and fantastic city to visit.

The betting part was not very successful, in fact I didn't have any winners from 6 bets in two days and suffered quite big losses over the two days, and decided its time to take  break from all betting till the start of September.

After having an excellent run in March ,April & June the profits have started dwindle away over the past seven weeks and  in particular  July being big losing month.

I am disappointed with the way things gone over last seven weeks the results haven't shown any improvement in August,just can't seem to get any momentum going the odd winning day seems to be followed by two or three losing days.

It seems good time to take little break from the racing and to try and come back a lot fresher in for last two months of flat season.

Tuesday York ebor day one best bets

 First day of York ebor meeting with three group races the Feature races being Juddmonte international group one and Great Voltigeur group two.

Overnight there is plenty rain forecast at York, and I would think the ground would be riding Good/Soft,if the forecast is correct,though will wait till the morning before posting Tuesdays bets, when we will have more of an idea about the ground.

*updated at 11.00 am*

Only 1.4 mm  rain fell over night and ground remains good though I would think it will be riding on slow side of good .Two bets on day one.

10F JUDDMONTE INTERNATIONAL GROUP 1 YORK 3.25
BYWORD:Improving French colt winning three times this season including at Royal Ascot,beating Twice Over in the group one Prince Wales stakes,only defeat this season when beaten 0.50 lenghs by Goldikova at Lonchamp in May.


MAIN DANGER:Appears to be RIP VAN WINKLE who ran good second last time at Goodood behind Canford Cliffs only beaten neck trying to concede 8LB,though ran his best race last season when finishing 1L second behind Sea the Stars in the Eclipse over today's distance of 10F


VERDICT :1) BYWORD 2)RIP VAN WINKLE 3)TWICE OVER


12F GREAT VOLTIGEUR GROUP 2 YORK 2.50
MIDAS TOUCH:Still improving, good second in Irish derby finishing 0.50 lengh behind Cape Blanco.(form looks solid) and will be suited by this easier ground at York,Failed to handle the Epsom track,should be suited far better by this track


MAIN DANGER:REWILDING Looks big danger after finishing third in Epsom two places in front of Midas Touch,though hasn't ran since (73 days ago) which is slight concern,though should be suited by the track and this easier ground


VERDICT:1)MIDAS TOUCH 2)REWILDING 3)HARRIS TWEED


TODAYS BETS


BYWORD 1PT E-WAY @ 3-1 STAN JAMES ,3.25 YORK 
MIDAS TOUCH 1PT E-WAY@ 3-1 STAN JAMES 2.50 YORK

Blank Monday

Typical quiet start to the week on Monday with four cards, couple fairly decent races on poly track at Kempton including 0-100 class 2 handicap  though that looks quite hot contest and with Mass Rally ,The Confessor & Avenuesnalleyways all holding strong claims.

We have the start of the York Ebor festival starting tomorrow so will concentrating on that meeting over the next four days.

Summary of the weeks bets

Very quiet week with 3 points loss in total,just four bets and the one winner at 9-4 ,not easy week with so much rain about and so many non runners,made it very difficult to find value bets.In the circumstances 3 points loss not so disappointing.Next week we have some top class racing at the four day York Ebor meeting  and hopefully there will be few more winning bets.

THE WEEKLY  RESULTS :


ON THE WEEK:
4 BETS) 1 WINNER)LOSS 3PTS)


OVERALL AFTER 28 WEEKS
247 BETS) 74 WINNERS) PROFIT 35.80)
