Pyro's €1k to €10k challenge

I'm going to do this for the lols just to see if I can do it over as long a time as it takes. No set limit and I'll try take it handy.

No reasoning for the moment as I just can't be bothered doing more typing but everything will be researched just like my daily donkey thread. None of my horses from there will be posted here.

For the time being, my max bet on thread is €50, the minimum is €5. Stats and all will be kept.

Shit or bust pretty much. More bets than I usually do too. On all sports as well, not just horses. I'll be using Betfair on certain things for this log but I'll often take best odd guaranteed for the horses.

Wish me luck!

1:30 Leicester - Red Law - €5 @ 33/1 (Bet365)

2:30 Leicester - Anquetta - €20 @ 9/2 (Bet365)

2:20 Southwell - Je Suis Unrockstar - €25 @ 7/2 (VC)

Total Staked : €50

Not really, but whatever makes you sleep at night.

Cheers.

Red Law ran a good race to come 3rd @ 33/1. Jumped well and traveled well for a long time but couldn't match the main two in the run in. Happy enough to get a good run for my few quid.

Anquetta wins @ 5/1 (15p R4) to give me my first winner of the new log. He jumped a few fences in bad fashion but still traveled well enough throughout and had to grind out a win in the end. Don't think he'll follow up though, such an awkward horse.

Je Suis Unrockstar finished a few lengths off the pace in 5th. Got caught wide and plugged on at one pace. Still worth keeping with him based on his previous run, which was probably a career best.

Bank - €1,055

Bets - 3
Wins - 1
SR - 33%
Staked - €50
Returned - €105
ROI - 110%

Cheers Moffo and everyone else too.

I think my other thread is cursed for the NH season. Can't buy a winner on it but I get a 5/1 winner and 33/1 place from my first 2 NH bets. Annoying!
