Thursday 20th September
A briefer than usual update from me today. It is a very special birthday today for my partner Chris, she puts up with a lot in terms of my workload and her moms health issues, so please forgive me, if on this day, I give her some near undivided attention.
There are Flat Fixtures at Ayr; Pontefract and Yarmouth, plus AW at Chelmsford and an Irish Fixture.
We had a couple of nice placed horses (advised at 10 + 20/1 on the Patent yesterday) and with a lot of rain about at Ayr and precious little to enthuse about elsewhere; will have another 50p each way unit Patent today, plus a couple of "Mentions"
All of the selections have form on soft, form at the back of the season, on decent handicap marks and should give us a very good run for our moderate investment.
We will be fully back to normal tomorrow and all of those who have asked for e-mail copies of Alan's articles - to confirm, I will send them out on Sunday as we have 2 very good days of Horse Racing (relative to recent times) tomorrow and Saturday, plus I am at Newton Abbot tomorrow afternoon, Eastbourne on Saturday and have Speedway GP Round 9 tips and analysis to get ready for Friday Evening release - hence all Alan mails will be sent on Sunday afternoon.
Back with a full service and tips and mentions tomorrow, once we have had chance to fully assess Ayr conditions today.
