£10 Challenge - Dom's Day One

And they're off!

I had a little look at the racing last night, there's not a huge amount on but one took my eye at a good price. Spic 'n Span in the opening race of the day, the 11.50 at Southwell, looked huge at 6.3 so I broke out the ATR video archive. I wasn't hugely impressed with the front two in the market, Maid Of Ailsa and North South Divide and Spic 'n Span has some C&D place form, though is yet to win. As the place and e/w terms weren't available last night, I stuck 50p on to win and woke up to discover that a withdrawal had left my odds reduced to 5.86, but that's not so bad considering you can only get 3.9 as I type! I have decided not to back it to place, as it's hardly worth wasting one of my three bets, especially given the market move.

I also knew that Arsenal travelled to Burnley for the Carling Cup, as I changed the football display in the window at work yesterday :D I opted to put 4-0 to Burnley, which is 33/1 with William Hill, but I won't be backing that in the challenge. I will be half-rolling it on the Arsenal win though, as they had way too much for a Sheffield United side that was admittedly missing a couple of key players, but that was essentially full strength. I feel we're better than Burnley and it scans that the Arse shouldn't have a huge problem, even at Turf Moor.

For my third bet, I've gone for an early tilt at glory, with a £1 (min bet with Betdaq multiples) treble:

Satwa Street (14:00 Lingfield)
Titan Triumph (15:00 Lingfield)
Arsenal to win (19:45 vs Burnley)

The odds on that? 20.72!

Good luck, ladies.

Can't see those pictures, need to find a way to get them viewable or just copy-paste what it says.

Good luck sir.

I take it by your text of 'scoooop' that spic n span won?

Why can't you see them? Can noone else see them? I can bloody well see them and I've never had a problem posting pictures before...?

Spic 'n Span did indeed win, but Arsenal cost me more than anyone else. Sucks.
