Tin hat needed after The Tin Man lets us down
The last week was all about The Tin Man for Northern Monkey. Clearly, the Wizard of Oz is still playing funny buggers and hasn’t given The Tin Man a new heart. Judging by the way it ran at Ascot on Saturday, it sure does need one!
After last weekend’s huge success, Wayne was understandably bullish about his latest “project” horse and the week leading up to Saturday’s race saw a few attempts at getting stakes rolling up onto The Tin Man via doubles. Unfortunately the previous week’s heroics weren’t matched and Saturday proved to be a major disappointment for Northern Monkey’s followers. Still, you can’t win them all…
Getting right back on after falling off
Tuesday evening proved to be something of a horror show for the Football Service 1 system (I backed five teams, none of them won) and judging by the tipster’s comments in his member’s email on Thursday containing the weekend’s picks, it appears that the main system suffered too. Of course, after a blow out, human nature tends to dictate that the last thing you then want to do is shell out a load more money on a big number of tips from the same source. Far better to gradually recover the losses and regain confidence that way, no?
Well, no. It was a case of getting right up back in the saddle on Saturday with a bumper 13 bet weekend for the Service 1 system. Even the tipster himself was struggling to remember the last time a round of fixtures threw up so many selections. Those who retained faith in their tipster and betting bank, and stayed consistent in their staking enjoyed a decent enough day. In times past I can guarantee I’d have lowered my stakes or something equally as daft. Not now though. Sometimes experience really does count for a lot.
Clean sweep for AH Edge
It’s not been a good week overall. The horse racing tipsters have found the going heavy in more ways than one and judging by the emails, the guys at Chasemaster are feeling particularly frustrated at present. But of course this is why we add diversity to our portfolios, and it was good to see AH Edge produce five winning bets from five on Sunday. Such a performance certainly helped keep the week to a “Disappointing” rating and prevent it from slumping to “Catastrophic”!
