Three winning months in a row. Happy days. In fact I'd forgotten what it was like. Including forgetting what happens when you win a few bob - and I do mean a few bob - off a bookmaker - £140 profit in this instance.
All of which is par for the course. They don't want to be bookmakers, they want to be casinos. But next time a rep from Victor Chandler is on the TV bigging it up about how they've stood a bet of £50000 on the favourite in the big race, remember they don't actually take bets from anyone who can hold the form book the right way up. And you should definitely remember that if you're the person who made the bet!
Notes every Saturday on that day's racing and how well or badly I've done the previous week.
