Shava-dab-adoo

You will have to forgive me for being a little self indulgent today. Hey but perhaps that's what blogging is all about.

After a tardy start to the month of August and being acutely aware that most subscribers view the profit and loss position at the end of the day rather than on the basis of individual selections, it was somewhat disappointing to go in to Wednesday with only the one selection on the Kempton Park card and not for the first time this month. At the same time, I hold firm to my convictions that if good opportunities don't exist on a card I won't be drawn in to putting round pegs in to square holes. I know several services promise 'X' amount of selections per day but this can only dilute the effectiveness of their services.

It wasn't the advised overnight price of 14-1 of yesterday's sole selection as we have landed several similar touches before, it was more the manner of victory that was the catalyst to the euphoria of the night. I must admit to feeling that one of those de ja vu moments was about to occur after feeling very bullish on the chances of Hardy Blue on Monday and watching the advised 7-1 evaporating to an SP of 7-2 only strengthened those feelings. Hardy Blue appeared to clip heels coming out the stalls, ran no race and was declared lame by the on course veterinarian.

As SHAVANSKY dropped to the back of the field in yesterday's Kempton Park opener, it was soon a good 25 lengths to the poor and I was almost holding my head in my hands. As this was an Apprentice Handicap I started to question the ability of the jockey, in this case Pat Millman and his judgement of pace. Well, his judgement was far better than mine as he steadily came in to contention without so much as a shake of the reigns and gobbled up the opposition winning with consummate ease.


Mischief managed! Don't you just love this sport.
