Disappointing start to 2012 with what can only be described as very poor week .Both bets ran shocking races after being well supported in market .With loss £350 / 3.50 pts on the week.
The first bet was on Tuesday in 6 furlong claiming stakes at Southwell on Punching £50 each-way at 7-2 after travelling well in early part of the race found very little once headed finishing well beaten fourth behind the 14-1 long shot Dickie Le Davoir .Loss - £100 / 1.00 pt
Second bet was on Friday at Woverhampton in 5 furlong claiming stakes this was split stakes bet on two horses Red Cape £75 each-way @ 7-2 & Hinton Admiral £50 each-way @ 6-1 .Really disappointed with this race both horses had been in good form this winter and looked to have strong chances in this claimer ,though both ran no kind race finishing fifth and sixth behind 12-1 outsider Desert Strike .Loss -£250 / 2.50 pts .
Moving quickly onto next weeks racing, its going to be very quiet start to the week, for some reason there are no flat claiming races in Uk till Thursday .Why we don't have any claimers in early part the week is anyone's guess .Hopefully it will be better week than last week :-)
Next blog update Thursday 13th January .
