With October's 40pt profit so fresh in the memory we approached the November meeting full of enthusiasm. However, a Saturday morning downpour left the going extremely tough, and produced an unusually pronounced track bias.
Despite all this, and so many near misses, our racing tipster returned 36.5 points (from 38 staked).
12.40: Indian Castle 1pt ew at 7/1: unplaced SP 6/1
1.15: Oxwich Bay 1pt ew at 11/2 (SkyBet - 5 places): 2nd SP 9/2
1.50: Exitas 2pts win at 3/1: 3rd SP 3/1
2.25: Movewiththetimes 2pts win at 7/2: 2nd SP 4/1
3.00: Cantlow 2pts win at 7/2: unplaced SP 6/1
3.35: Calett Mad 2pts win at 9/2: unplaced SP 7/4
A day of near misses and despite being on one of the gambles of the day, 9/2 in to 7/4, we couldn't land that winner.
12.40: Apples Shakira 2pts win at 2/1: WON, SP 1/1
1.15: Ballyoptic 2pts win at 5/4: 2nd SP 10/11
1.50: Doing Fine 1pt ew at 5/1: Non-Runner
2.25: Foxtail Hill 1pt ew at 10/1: unplaced SP 9/1
3.00: Thomas Campbell 2pts win at 13/8: WON, SP 13/8
3.30: Coup De Pineau 1pt ew at 10/1: unplaced SP 8/1
4.00: Pineapple Rush 1pt ew at 16/1: 3rd SP 11/2
Once again we were on one of the most well gambled horses all day, in the last race. Thankfully, this time it made the place money, and we'd already notched a brace of winners earlier on the card returning a profit on the day.
1.15: Wylde Magic 1pt ew at 11/1: unplaced SP 7/2
1.50: River Wylde 2pts win at 5/6: 2nd SP 1/1
2.25: Fox Norton 2pts win at 10/11: WON, SP 4/5
3.00: The New One 1pt ew at 14/1: 4th, SP 7/1
3.30: Slate House 2pts win at 2/1: WON, SP 5/2
4.00: Ballygomartin 1pt ew at 8/1: unplaced SP 8/1
Once again we were on the best backed horse on the day. Wylde Magic was 11/1 when advised - before being sent off as short as 7/2. Two winners and getting on The New One before the market did meant another nice profit on the day.
