    I had decided to put up a second bet in the 4.45 but the odds do not seem good enough on reflection so i will leave it alone.

    Out of pig iron what is it, I might stick it in a trixie.

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,635 ✭✭✭zimmermania

    Its Titan Rock in the 4.45,is well enough handicapped,I was hoping for 10s.

    Was 13 to 2 last night now 7s,I wilm back it ew 5 places if and when it goes to 8s.

    It's a 20 runner handicap so need 8s.

    Any chance ye would let me in on the trix!! I have an itch for a patent myself.. I nailed a patent a while ago and i was smiling for weeks!

    I only bet single Euros or less because I'm the ultimate 'responsible' punter. But even with 50cent on a a trix or a patent. I walk around with a spring in my step.

    @zimmermania thanks AS ALWAYS for the tips!

    Nice one Zimmer, are you going to take a chance on Darkness in the last?

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,635 ✭✭✭zimmermania

    No Darkness is off my radar,Omeara is running him so often now that there cannot be a plan,just hoping for the best.welk handicapped now but probably has his own ideas about the game.

    Had a nice winner yesterday but had too little on.

    PP not renowned for genorosity has given us a bit of a chance today by paying 4 places in the 10 runner handicap at 2.25.

    It is a trappy handicap but i tipped Forza Orta when it last ran in a big field York handicap finishing 7th but only beaten just over 3 lengths.

    At 7 to 1 the 4 places it looks an ew bet to me only one lb higher than when last winning.

    getting 5/2 on JP horse (no. 6 , 5.25) most impressive !

    as far back as I can remember, all I've ever wanted to be is a layabout 😊

    Ascot is ok so far,a 25 to1 and a 40 to1 placed from 2 selections in the Hunt cup would have been fantastic if SONNY LISTON had been 1st instead of 2nd but as long as i am making a few quid its not too bad.

    Today ELDAR ELDAROV has been laid out for the Gold Cup 4.20 and while he has never run this far Varian knows what he is doing.

    Wise Eagle also runs and i dont think he is good enough (had a small share in the horse a few years ago!!!) but wish his connections well,they bought him for around 7000 if i remember correctly😣.

    DRUMROLL and BOLD ACT (bold acts chances would be enhanced by a good run from Bertinelli in the 3.05) are my two in the 5.35 and in the very competitive 6.10 BIGGLES can shoot them down (its my age) VAFORTINA needs to improve only a little to be involved.

    In the Britania Stakes at 5.oc a small ew on french trained BLESS at a very big price might give a return, books goin 6 or 7 places
