I had the worst day of the festival yesterday. I spent £30, but only returned £26.75.
With that said, I was £11.26 in profit after the first two days so I start today - before I place one single bet - with a profit of £8.01.
Here are the winners I picked yesterday:
1:30 - Black Hercules 5/1
5:30 - Cause of Causes 6/1
The horses that placed were:
1:30 - Bristol De Mai 5/1
2:50 - Valseur Lido 11/1
3:30 - Alpha Des Obeaux 8/1
I placed the above wagers with Betfair. The two wins mean that the company has given me 2 free £1 bets to play with today.
Here's what I have gone with today:
1:30 - ZUBAYR, SCEAU ROYAL, WHO DARES WINS (£1 e/w singles)
2:10 - ALL YOURS, GREAT FIELD (£1.50 e/w singles)
2:50 - BARTERS HILL, SHANTOU VILLAGE, ALLYSSON MONTERG (£1 e/w singles)
3:30 - DON COSSACK, DJAKADAM (£1 wins using the free bets from Betfair)
4:10 - ON THE FRINGE, PAINT THE CLOUDS, AUPCHARLIE (£1 e/w singles)
4:50 - SQUOUATEUR, QUALANDO (£1 e/w singles)
5:30 - CHRIS PEA GREEN, ROCK THE WORLD, NEXT SENSATION (£1 e/w singles)
I've spent £34.00 today, so am now minus £25.99 before the first race. Will 2016 end up being a profitable year? Stay tuned...
