This summer has so far been complete washout with more heavy downpours over past week .Hard to imagine nearly every big race meeting since May has been run on soft ground.
Looking back over the claiming bets this year ,there has so far been only four bets on the turf and its been over five weeks (June 9th ) since the last turf bet .
Obviously when betting in low class claiming races ,there are going to be quite few bets on the All Weather,though you don't expect to be having nearly all your bets on the All Weather in middle of summer .Hopefully the weather will improve soon, and we can have a few more bets on the turf.
Going back to last week there was just the one bet on Danny Warbucks in 1 mile three old claiming stakes on the the fibresand at Southwell .
Danny Warbucks made all the running and battled on well inside the final furlong to win by half lengh for £165.00 profit .Well supported in the market going off 7-4 favorite from an early 11-4 .That puts us back in profit in July .
Looking ahead to next week we are back on the All Weather on Monday with two claimers : (3.15 Southwell 7 furlong classified claimer) (8.00 Wolverhampton 12 furlong classified claimer) .With the strong possibilty of at least one bet on Monday .
THE RESULTS :
ON THE WEEK:
1 BET ) 1 WINNER ) PROFIT + £165.00 / 1.65 PTS
OVERALL AFTER WEEK 28 :
27 BETS ) 10 WINNERS ) 5 SECONDS ) 1 THIRD ) 11 UNPLACED )
STRIKE RATE 37.03% ) PROFIT + £1701 / 17.01 PTS
RETURN ON INVESTMENT 2012:
STAKED £3350 / 33.50 PTS ) RETURN £5050 / 50.50 PTS ) ROI +50.82%
Pleased to see you had a good week even with the crazy weather conditions. It is interesting how in the past the all weather courses were used as an alternative to frosty conditions. Never did we imagine that -for many trainers - it would be an ideal option to escape unending soft ground. It has certainly offered more consistency in these last few months.
