Readers of last week’s racing-focused Bet Diary post will know how I felt about the state of play; bad weather, bad racing, bad results. Well, the weekend just gone saw a good quality meeting at Leopardstown take place and with the better racing came better results as Racing Service 1 pushed itself to the fore.
A winner at 7/2 and a couple of losers on Saturday meant RS1 was just about in profit, but a lovely 25/1 winner on Sunday forced the grey racing clouds to part and the glow from the emerging sun warmed the cockles. With that one winner, the racing portfolio forced its way into profit for the first time this year.
To be fair it had looked like Bet Alchemist was going to be the trailblazer with a couple of good returns on the Saturday, only to take a step back on the Sunday. Some decent days through the week for Precision Value has done much to eradicate most of its losses and pull the overall profit and loss line up some, and Northern Monkey is closer to the break even line than it has been for a few weeks so it’s fair to say the last seven days have seen considerable improvement amongst the racing ranks.
Looking forward however, and again the racing is being affected by the weather (two turf meetings abandoned yesterday, two more today, and who knows through the rest of the week). Let’s hope this won’t stop some of the momentum that has been built.
