  1. BTW. Adams Park runs in the 5.05 at Salisbury, this horse is another "Tara Dylan" it will win a race and probably at a huge price "he's 25-1today" bags of class but hard to catch right, it's a case of leave him alone altogether or back him every time he runs until everything clicks. I've already backed him on his own as I did Space Blues and I've got them doubled up as well so fingers crossed.
  2. Space Blues won his Group 1 today at Deauville in the Prix Maurice de Gheest very comfortably indeed. I've been without access to the forum for 48 hours so I couldn't put him up for today but those that follow my posts hopefully would have backed him today at 4-1.
  3. My niece who works for Coral "see pic" had the head gasket go on her car so I gave her a lift to work last night 6pm. While I was there I deposited £20 into my Coral on line account to play when I got home. After a bonus win on Dog House of £345 I then got 3 bonuses in 4 spins on Fishing Frenzy and another on Rise of Merlin. All games played with £1 stake. I picked her up from work 4 hours later and cashed out £680. I left £20 to play with after I dropped her off. 😁
  4. I dended up collecting £36 for 2 place singles and a place double yesterday so re invested today. I wanted to back Hey Jonesey in the Stewards Cup but the draw has put me off. He won for me at 40-1 at Ascot so he owes me nothing.
  5. Ornate let me down for just under £700 only beaten a neck into third and switched from the middle of the track to the rails, had he just come up the rail would definitely been second. I think he and the second broke the track record as the winner broke it by almost a second. £30 to come back so doubled the stake, not bad.
  6. Very nice, great to see someone else not afraid to oppose the shorter priced horses, good luck.
  7. I can't find anything to get excited about tomorrow, today was much the same. I've sorted out four long priced runners for an each way Lucky 15. Afaak 2.45 Goodwood. 18-1. Ornate 3.15 Goodwood. 100-1 Peachey Carnehan 5.35 Wolv. 9-1 Bird to Love 8.25 Lingfield. 20-1
  8. Kameko got boxed in after a very poor ride and I'm convinced he will get his revenge, as good as the winner is, I'm sure Kameko is better. Tara Dylan was oh so tenderly ridden, 6 lengths behind the whole field until they turned into the straight, moved up easily on the outside when it was far too late to finish 6th, the win is imminent. Machree won easily nothing to add to that. Two winners in two days. 😁😁

    Hi Darren, just wondering when your going to start streaming again on twitch for those of us who "don't do" YouTube??
  10. I don't want to get too in depth with the Sussex stakes or any race for that matter otherwise I could rattle on for ages. Just to, say I'll be opposing Siskin with Kameko, I'll just say that he's improving with every run and I think the track at Goodwood will favour his running style. My main bet tomorrow isn't at Goodwood but at Thirsk. Machree runs in the 5.00 and currently on offer at 9/2 he ran a great race first time out this season doing his best work toward the finish and he's won 2nd time out for the last two seasons so he's had his prep run and ready to win tomorrow. There's horse at a massive price that I'm interested in tomorrow and that's Tara Dylan in the 5.15 at Galway. Currently priced at 33/1 I think it's worth a decent each way bet. I've been watching this horse for some time now and I'm not worried if it does get beat tomorrow as I'm sure there's a race to be won at a big price with this horse this season. The trainers horses are in great form at the moment though so tomorrow "could" be the day.
  11. My kind of game 😁 well done buddy, keep sending the pics in please.
  12. Thanks, Space Blues was a very easy winner who showed a blistering turn of foot when asked the question. I backed him to win £450 which was a large bet for me but I've mentioned this horse here on the forum at least half a dozen times in the last year and he seldom disappoints so he didn't owe me anything and I fully expect him to step up to group 1 company next time which will probably be abroad as there are no 7 furlong group 1 races run in this country, which is a bit naughty if you ask me but anyway wherever he goes next you can back him knowing you'll get a good run for your money. Stradivarius also won very comfortably in the end, yes it looked like Frankie had given himself a bit to do but in hindsight he was giving over a stone to the O'Brien horse and he would have been crazy to try and grind out out a battle in the straight with that one and if you watch the replay you could argue Frankie did the right thing holding him up or that he got lucky when the gap finally appeared. I think he won so comfortably in the end that it doesn't really matter. Would you back the 2nd or 3rd to turn the tables if they meet again? definitely not. I had a non runner in my fun lucky 15 so I put Hi Ho Silver in its place, just because of the Jeff Beck song back in the 70s, anyway it turned out to be the only winner "I took 8/1 this morning" so a return of £25 giving a tenner profit and stake for another lucky 15 tomorrow. 😁😁😁
  13. We also have a community room with large screen TV, dart board, pool table, apple pc with free Internet, I've never seen anyone using it except for the odd meeting. Ironically, the only room where people seem to "congregate" is the laundry room.
  14. Goodwood meeting starts tomorrow, my main bet tomorrow will be Space Blues in the 2.45, current odds 9/4. Looking through all tomorrow's runners I'll also be having a fun lucky 15. Benny and the Jets. 3.45 Goodwood 22/1. See my Baby Jive. 2. 00 Ayr 7/2. The Jean Genie. 5.00 Yarmouth 22/1. Unforgettable. 5.45 Galway 10/1. I like doing the odd coincidence bet.
  15. It's not just my garden, I live in a small apartment block and we share it. I've been here 8 years and I've NEVER been out there. The only people I've ever seen out there apart from the foxes are the gardener and window cleaner.
  16. They're not real, only prints. All picked up at car boot sales. 😁😁
  17. No, the neighbours feeding them doesn't help. They're not so beautiful when they're shagging outside my window at 3 am. Especially when I'm not getting any either. 😁
  18. I counted 21 in my garden but could only get these 6 in shot. A covid virus will wipe us all out and foxes will rule the earth.
  19. As my old man used to say, "a motor ain't no good to you if you can't get a wheelbarrow in the back"
  20. This is not slot or gambling related but quite funny. I'm working in a property at the moment that's on a council estate. The house almost opposite has a black Bentley and a Range Rover on the drive. The owner is Callum Hudson Odoi who plays for Chelsea. His brother/agent lives there and Callum turned up yesterday in a Mercedes G Wagon. It's a bit tight for parking and I'm worried my Toyota Lucida might get a knock. 😁 If you guys came into a substantial amount of money would a new car be on top of your shopping list? If so which make / model?
  21. Nice one, not bad for someone who prefers nh racing. I had 2 winners a 3rd and a non runner in my lucky yesterday, I prefer had the NR ran but it still paid £84.
  22. Diamond wins all prizes on the card.
  23. He's coming on now with deposits of 2. 3 & 4k where has all this money suddenly appeared from?
  24. I'd say get used to it, I can see slot streaming being outlawed in the UK. They have limited FOBTs to £2, banned bonus buys and the £10 - £40 or £50 a spin merchants will kill it off for all streamers in the UK. Watching Chipmonkz the other day playing Danger on £40 a spin, he said, "don't do what I'm doing now, I do this so you don't have to" You have got to be kidding me? 😜😜😜 I can't afford to and I don't want to.
