The king is back. While others doubted you, we always knew that you would come through Jimmy!
On a good night for the NEWCASTLE tipsters, one man soared, Shearer-like, above the opposition. After taking a (much needed) break on Tuesday, Jimmy Fenwick was on the premises again last night.
Now while it is true that the odds on Nice As Ice were only slightly longer odds than the sun rising tomorrow (4-7), he did flag up Black Olive at 10-3 when the page went live, only for the Pelaw bitch to be returned at 10-11. £74.02 profit.
It would be fair to say that Black Olive got all three tipsters out of jail. Though it did mean that Steve Anderson (who shamelessly and disloyally ignored Bramble Reggie) deserved no better than a £4.55 loss, while Jimmy Wright continued his winning streak by including Coolavanny Bani for a £69.55 profit on the night. (Which is £169.55 more than Rab McNair finished with on Sunday.)
At PERRY BARR, Paul Gebhard and Hannah Prince both tipped up 2-1 winner Moyar Prince among their selections. Paul finished the night on -£10 while Hannah was ‘in the blue’ at £50 profit. Shame Hannah DIDN’T HAVE MORE FAITH IN THE KENNEL’S 4-1 AND 5-2 WINNERS ON THE NIGHT! Just saying!
Robert Short would have been counting his money as Dolla Wisecrack came from last to take the lead at the third bend only to check up and finish last. What did your mother tell you about gambling Robert! (Even with imaginary money). Let that be a lesson to you.
Following his humiliation on Monday, Peter Harnden is spending a week of self loathing and inner reflection at a Buddhist spiritual retreat in Barnsley. Defending the heavyweight belt (he only drops to welterweight during race preparation) is Big Mark Pierrepont. His challengers are Alan ‘Double Digit’ Bellis – a man who sneers at anything less than 9-1 – and the former Terence Urquhart, now simply ‘Terry’ who had a £162.50 winning night on debut and was part of a Nottingham trio who couldn’t pick their noses next time out.
No Paul Binks today. No he hasn’t shied off. It’s not because he felt utterly and completely humiliated by Mark Wallis £500 profit last week. He was just “busy”. And no it wasn’t anything medical. Jason Gander keeps plugging away with a nice little earner each week (now you know why he works for Ben Keith). Nathan Hunt has come out of hiding following last week’s mauling with the absolute confidence that he can be the no. 1 Welsh tipster following Robert Short’s capitulation at Perry Barr last night. (It is a fairly small league though.)
Swabys Luciejane (R7 T3) Stumbled start last week and ran a blinder to finish third. This looks a slightly easier event and the main dangers are on her outside opposed to inside. Running really well at the moment and this looks a perfect opportunity £100 win.
Aero RackItUp (R4 T2) Better drawn in 2 tonight. Hopefully smash out and will take a good one to beat him. £30 win.
Just to pull me out of the gutter, Pink Osteria (R11 T1) has her box and looks a touch of class against these. £70 win
I am going with three of our own tonight including a couple whose win records aren’t as good as they might be, but they appear to have chances tonight.
Alien Sea (R6 T5) has a habit of losing races he should win, but he has been running in good company, and tonight represents a slight drop in class. £30 win
Jesses Sister (R11 T2) I keep waiting for her to get to the bend in front and if she can tonight, I don’t think they will catch her. With the favourite out, the danger is in one. The bet is, can she lead? £30 win
Passing Stranger (R12 T5) I thought he ran poorly at Hove to be honest but he is quite capable of winning this if he gets it right. £30 win + £10 treble
