After a disappointing October which ended in a loss, the general sense of frustration and gloominess that comes from re-entering lockdown here in the UK and concern that the powers that be are going to cancel Christmas (!), it was lovely to be able to savour a really good week’s betting.
Five of the eight tipsters delivered a winning week, and two of them excelled.
I have to start this week’s round up with a hearty congratulations to Northern Monkey, who enjoyed a spectacular Saturday, knocking in winners here, there and everywhere. From Yorkshire, to Ireland and on to the good old U. S. of A., Wayne went all international in his quest for winners. It was at Doncaster that the big winner came though, with On To Victory landing odds of 10/1 and with that one also being doubled up with another winner at Wincanton, it was happy days. Overall NMP notched up over 30 points of profit on the day. Welcome back!
The victory for On To Victory was especially sweet as it had also been tipped up by Bet Alchemist, alongside another 14/1 winner and suddenly things were going dizzily well. Sitting at home (once you’ve walked the mutt, where else can you go in lockdown?) watching it all unfold of the telly, I had to treat myself to an extra Hobnob with my cuppa. Yes folks, I was that excited!
With Precision finding a pretty regular stream of winners through the week, it was only really Racing Service 2 which has disappointed, but I’ve no doubt that situation will turn around sooner or later. Talking of RS2, Andrew from the service took the remarkable step of asking if some members wouldn’t mind leaving the service (with a refund, naturally) as he was so concerned at they way prices were being affected by what appeared to be people loading up on the selections. That this must have cost him a fair chunk of money, I think speaks volumes for his resolve to protect his longer-term members and their interests. A truly selfless act. It’s a cheap gag but if he doesn’t start picking some winners soon mind you, he might not have needed to ask! (Sorry, Andrew! 🙂 ).
Anyway, the good news didn’t finish there, with Golf Insider warming up nicely for this week’s US Masters (in November – could this year get any weirder!?!) by picking out a 30/1 winner on the European Tour.
So all told, a rather good week and suddenly the grind of October seems a dim and distant memory.
