Christ that was a nervy chase if you were on the Windies. They were going fine at a run a ball before lunch, then come back out and the pitch starts turning square! I missed all the 1.0x lays and the 1.1s but got the 1.2 lay and greened at 1.6, cant trust either team you know. The three games left should be good too, although they'll be at a different ground. No schoolboy error of messing my awe-green book today (didnt bet!), learned that lesson the last game with these two.
The horses, level again. Struggling a bit with them. Its not through being in poor form, I'm not doing every race and finishing level, I'm looking at two or three races and just feeling incredibly bored. Just that couldnt care less feeling. I'm flicking between channels, making a cuppa, playing poker, anything but concentrate on the race. Whether its the quality of the racing or what, I dont know. I sit down and I'm fed up after two races, its not the money in the market sure it was a Saturday, its not the getting matched issue sure I have one click, I just couldnt give a monkeys what wins the seller at 3-40 or whatever it is. Thats the only way I can explain it. If I was a horse Matt Chapman would describe me on ATR as not wanting to win and fallen out of love with the game, at least I dont use fake tan though. Cant wait for the flat to start back for a bit of excitement!
Have my Gruss training course tomorrow, I think theres 14 or 15 other people going, I've been practicing my 'Hi, I'm shrewd' look in the mirror as to not feel out of place.. Right, theres this fellow on the Betfair forum, he made a load of t-shirts taking the mickey, its brilliant if you understand cricket you'll get the jokes, I never bought this one (seething now!) but could you picture me walking in to a trading course wearing it..
