Yet another grim day. Faugheen (what an absolute wonder of a horse by the way) won me a very small bit relative to total staked, so rolled that into West Ham win... oops. :lol:

Swear in the glory days of this thread when it had >20 posts a week etc everyone was banging them in for fun. Desperate times now. Anyway, tomorrow's racing for me is a much more exciting prospect than today's, and I've gone for:

Leopardstown 12:35 - City Island 7/4 [2pt win]
Chepstow 12:30 - Harry Senior 11/8 [3pt win]
Chepstow 13:05 - Whatswrongwithyou 9/2 [2pt win]
Chepstow 13:35 - Allmankind 11/8 [3pt win]
Chepstow 14:10 - Clyne 6/1 [1pt win]
Chepstow 14:50 (Welsh National) - Captain Chaos EW 20/1 [0.5pt EW]
Kempton 13:20 - Fanion D'Estruval [3pt win]
Kempton 13:55 - Danse Idol 9/2 [1pt win]
Kempton 14:30 - Capeland 2/1 [2pt win]
Kempton 15:05 - Deauville Dancer EW 12/1 [1pt EW, 2 total]

Titans well overpriced at 7/4 to beat the Patriots in the Wild Card tonight.

Also Titans, Seahawks and Bills in doubles and a treble.

Well done fella. Did the Pats have injury trouble or something? Good record on the season and obviously excellent playoff record, at home to a team with a worse record and yet they lost to Miami and also you put them up?

Unlucky with the trixie, Buffalo threw it away really. Seahawks you'd think will win later for the double though.

The patriots are a betting dream that only comes round once in a while. A team being priced on it's past glory, rather than it's current ability.

I backed kansas to beat them at ridiculous prices and won, lost doing the same with the Bills (but it was a close game) but won again with the Titans.

They won the division because early season they beat up bad teams and still have the greatest coach in the NFL. Without him they were a 6 - 10 side I reckon.

Wish I'd backed my gut and really lumped on.

Next season back the Bills to win the division.

Missed this. Been horrendously out of form and don't want others following me and losing £££, I did have Defi even though I'm a huge UDS fan boy and would used to blind back him in the past. Defi is an absolute machine, some horses have that complete engine and will to win and it is v difficult to oppose them, similar to a younger Altior. The Champion Chase will be an absolute scorcher and I will be there for the first time :) :)

Did have the nice Apple's Jade/Penhill forecast yesterday though, so perhaps a change of fortunes is in order. Big day tomorrow with a top card at Cheltenham, Doncaster with some on ITV too. So I've picked out the following (don't judge me if they all lose!) Bet365 prices listed.

Cheltenham
12.40 - Rowland Ward 5/2
1.15 - Cloudy Glen 7/1
1.50 - Lalor 11/2
2.25 - Top Ville Ben 7/1 [also playing a forecast with Bristol de Mai to finish 2nd]
3.00 - Harry Senior 9/2
3.35 - William Henry EW 20/1 (only if there are 8 runners and he's at least 14/1 ... purely going for place money here)

Doncaster
12.55 - Lisp 7/2
2.05 - Boss Man Fred 9/4f
2.40 - Lady Buttons 13/8
3.15 - Fingerontheswitch 11/1

Also playing Fairyhouse 2.10 - Colreevy 5/1, and Uttoxeter 2.30 - Sunset Showdown 15/8f

Good luck all. Cheltenham countdown is on!
