At the prices I'll oppose Aiken off a break with Havlin up, though Gosden is in fine form. On my tissue there's juice in dutching Biographer and I'm Your Man - with an expectation of good ground or softer.
Ho hum - it was a competitive race on paper and Aiken opposable. Biographer weak and ran a stinker. I'm Your Man not stay. OK.
Soft Falling Rain may not be spot on for this, and Caspar Netscher far from sure to improve for the run last time. I'd have Gregorian and Tawhid much closer to them in the market and so will dutch both.
This was better. Actually it was like the good old days when the market regularly used to come into line with my tissue prices. Happy.
Usual dart-throwing contest. Pearl Ice, Louis the Pious (again), El Viento and Rodrigo des Torres for starters.
Added Spinatrix to my portfolio which looked good until the favourite loomed up. 2nd and 3rd - that's life.
For the doubles, keep it simple - Murtagh at Newbury!
Backed Glen Moss (only 3pts) once the doubles were busted. And that helped the day out.

Football. Laid Liverpool at half-time only for Stoke to miss their penalty. Cross with that I then backed Wigan and Arsenal at half-time just in time for second half melt-downs. Ugly start to the season. Still, Fulham won...
