Cheers Mossyman, makes a change from my other one anyways! It's funny how results are good when I don't bother my arse to give reasoning.

Wouldn't back Kauto due to the price either, wouldn't back The Nightingale at that price also. He's much too short in my opinion. Henderson's Riverside Theatre is the one I'm interested in at around 16's but I'm still trying to weight up the options. Trying to find a horse to place is the best way of getting a decent return out of this race imo. There's no value in Kauto and I wouldn't be 100% convinced that this'll be a stroll in the park for him either, just didn't impress me at Down Royal although he should improve tenfold for that. Nacarat was interesting until the ground got so soft, now he's massively opposable. Long Run could be a machine around Kempton but I really dislike the horse for no apparent reason! Although I hated Workforce for a while, then fell in "love" with the beast when he won me numerous wheelbarrows of money in the Arc. Maybe Long Run could do the same?! Who knows but I'd oppose him too.

Riverside Theatre is the one I always keep going back to. He may not want it so soft but he's a serious animal, unbeaten at Kempton in 4 starts, jumps well, travels well and should improve for the step up in trip unless I'm way off the mark. He has the better jockey of the two Henderson ones that's for sure. 16's just looks too big for a horse who has a lot more improvement to come. The ground is my only worry. He's also really good when fresh so the 2 and a half months off the track will do him no harm. That's my current angle into the race but that could change, I doubt it though.

Hopefully it'll be a good log in the long run (see what I did there?!) and it'd be class if I reached the target. I'll be gradually upping the maximum level of my stakes and with a bit of luck, I'll get there in time. Cheers for the message.

Cheers Digme. Some more winning days and I'll be a happy man!

Might be worth your while doing your big priced ones each way.
Youve had a 20 and 33 placed so far. Luckly for me I strayed from your method so had both ew.

lol I didn't even know Big Bay placed! I was too busy being delighted that Zebrano got up. Just watched it there, cracking effort from him. Just goes to show that dutching may prove some nice dividends if I can get it right.

Such a contrast on this thread to my other one. I'm not making gigantic profits or anything but €300 in 3 days ain't half bad.

Unless it's followed by a 100% streak for the Gunners, in which case reduce the stakes

All of the horses lost and I'll sort out the bank later. Dougal, I'll get back to you too.

Quick one..

West Ham vs Arsenal (-1) - €50 @ 13/10 (PaddyPower)

West Ham in disarray, Arsenal with a strong team out. Hoping for a comfortable win but who knows.

You too mate, hopefully it'll involve no heart attacks but Arsenal usually provide lots of 'em!

Don't mean to steal advice on your thread pyro but when I started looking at racing and form I used irishracing.com,and still do. Use the horrse tracker function too,it'll alert you when a horse is running that you put in
