Dom's status update

I, like Tim, have been overdosing on Football Manager. Last night Tim got the sack in our game because he's shit. To be honest, it's kinda killed my passion for that game a little. Anyway, unlike Tim, it hasn't stopped me gambling but I'm having a shocker just now and am taking a few days off. Yesterday I didn't pick anything but Monday I had three second places from three bets and on Sunday I also had three losers from three. Can't remember how many of those were seconds but it's at least one. Seconds suck balls.

So yeah, my bankroll's seen better days. It's currently at a measly 11.70 points and I've made a paltry 0.33 points for this month up to now. Here's the pretty graph thing, just above this sentence.

Still, let's not dwell on the negatives. Positive thinking and all that. It's 11.7 points more than I had when I started, right? And on Saturday, I started the day with two winners. Creachadoir (right) at a big price and I stuck a couple of points on Portsmouth for the Cup at evens. On the Friday my day also got off to a flyer with Luberon at 8.1 (but again I was let down by my other two bets).

So in Summary, since I last posted, I've had 19 "real" bets with just 4 winners, for a net loss of 4.2 points. Not sure when I'll come back off my break but I got paid yesterday so I'm not terribly short of cash, though I am going to have to shell out a bit for petrol/van hire when I move back to England (which is planned for June 2nd, we need to get pished before then, gents) and I did buy my season ticket yesterday.

As I haven't seen a good A-Z bet for a while, here's a totally ill informed, ridiculous, GAMBOOOL punt:

14:15 Goodwood
Goodwood Starlight @ 15.00 win, 4.10 place (Betdaq)
0.5 pts e/w
Gah, it came 4th by half a length. I'm really not having much luck of late :D

A-Z Total: -11.25 pts
Days passed: 29

“Real” total: 11.70 pts

In my defence, I cleaned up in the first season, as a result most of my decent players achieved all they felt they could at Rangers and wanted out. I brought in new faces, but by the time they gelled, Dom was out of sight. Same thing the next season...

Head to head, and trophy wise Dom and I would be even. I also got to the semi's of the UEFA cup. Alas, it was not to be !

Hey guys I have a big tip for Tomintoul Flyer in the 7.35 at Sandown tonight. Trained by the master Henry Cecil, the horse won 2of his 3 juvenile starts late last season. He runs off a mark of 85 here which looks lenient especially considering he has an entry in the group 2 Kind Edward the VII stakes at Royal Ascot. This entry wouldn't be so relevant had the owner been a John Magnier or Khalid Abdulla but the owner is infact A local Brewers- Angus Dundee distillers plc. The horse will probably want 1m4f but should have enough class to win over this trip. he was a best priced 2/1 this morning but is not down to as low as 11/8 in places. I managed to get some 15/8 from Scotbet and am very hopeful. Main danger looks to be Tajweed. However he is on a higher mark than last time for winning a poor 4 runner race and encounters different ground conditions to last time. Hope you guys get a chance to get on and the Flyer does us the business!

Will Walsh said...

Two postponements in one day due to the clerks over watering the course. P45 time methinks.Money is going on Little Lu in the 8.25 at 11/10 instead. Think it should be 1/2
