Close but no cigar !!!

Monday's bet on Swift Bird was bit frustrating finishing very close second only beaten head behind the heavily gambled on favourite Insieme ,after trying to make all the running, just getting worn down near the finish.

Slightly surprised that horse drifted so much in betting going off 4-1 chance,though with best price guarantee that most bookmakers offer ,thats never going be a problem.

There was late jockey change Liam Jones replacing Jamie Spencer ,no real complaints was given good  ride by Liam Jones just unable to hold on near the finish.No damage done on the race with just £20.00 loss on the day.

On to Tuesdays racing just one All Weather card at Southwell ,though after going through the meeting there are no suitable betting opportunities, on what looks a very competitive eight race card.


  1. Hi Jerry,

    I want to appologise for initially stating on my blog that you may have been disappointed about your selection drifting to 4/1. I overlooked that you had best price guaranteed. Sorry for the error on my part. I quickly ammended it once realised.

    Best wishes,

  2. No worries Jason !!

    Thats why I like to place most my bets with bookmakers who offer best price guarantee,though the majority of my bets go off shorter,there are always the occasions when they do drift out like today.
