Today's winner is...

I would go for Karello bay in Newbury but with not a lot of confidence. The past few saturdays have been dreadful...

Treasure Hunt

as said earlier, this morning was for the treasure hunt in the park. Everything went well and everybody seem to enjoy themselves a lot.
Here is the birthday girl...

training in altitude

The other day I tried to change my type of training and went up the hill 5 times, which certainly made it worth while at the end because the weather was great. At the last attempt I decided too stop and take some pictures...

The latest update is that the achilles is back to normal and I feel great to go running again, Unfortunately, I will not be spending as much time at the computer as I have been doing over the past few months. I also checked the latest onb Second life website and I am complketely puzzled by the website. My account is still running but I find difficult to access the site.So many innovations in a few months. They have really been busy over there.. Quite a busy saturday with a treasure Hunt and a Scottish dancing competition in the afternoon...
Later I'll come back and give you my tips for the week-end. I'm sure you can't wait for them...

No More...

O.K., we 'll try again with Doumen as he has a fancy runner in the Gold cup with L'ami at 14/1. Let's hope that this time he brings back something on the last day...

Not getting better

As usual things don't get better in Festival, but we still hope that we can get a lucky break and find one winner at least. Snowy morning ended up second was the nearest for the moment.
For tomorrow, I am going for the Doumen double Kashbah bliss and Millenium royal, which I tipped a few weeks ago at 33/1.
Good luck.

First day

It's obviously not easy to find as winner at the festival, especially at such odds like 40 / 1, and 16/1 in the Champion hurdle.But we keep trying and studying the form book
Tomorrow can only be better
I have Snowy morning and Berings express as a double
Although my favourite jockey, Magnier is booked on Judge Roy Bean in the last
Good luck

Festival Time

Really ouzzled by the entry from Chotard in the Champion Hurdle. Its price is 500/1 and I can't be too confident in its chances and still wondered why he was entered in the race after all. Each way chance ?

Tip for tomorrow : Hardy Eustace and Buena vista in the Arkle.
Good luck

Poor, very poor

Dreadful saturday.. What was the story behind Blackburn / Man.U. No tonight is the game I meant ( really ) and I fancy Man. city to cause a surprise...Dunne for the first goal 40/1...

After the emotions of last sunday, this week-end should be quieter on the racing front, as we all wait for Cheltenham, on Tuesday.
First bet would be each-way at Wolverhampton, 1.50 Whodunit who is tried blinkered and comes from Johnston Yard
Sandown, 3.10 Border Castle
Chepstow, 5.20, pass me a dime
Fairyhouse5.15, afterthegoldrush, Magnier is riding at 8/1....
First goalscorer should be Larsson but price is too short so I would go for the usual Ronaldo bet. Why not Blackburn/ Man.U. as a bet for two halves...
Good luck

Great bet

Decided to put a bet at half-time of the football on Sunday. Usual tactics : Great prices on number of goals. Saw Spurs at 12/1. Thought it was all over five minutes to go when West-Ham scored but Spurs came back to win it. Here is the proof of the bet :

Early-season training

I took part last Sunday in a friendly Sportive of 30 miles, early season cycle, with around 10 other cyclists. The whole event was organised by and was divided into three events : 70, 50 and 30 miles on offer. I certainly enjoyed the laid-back and friendly atmosphere in my group, but the last few miles from Tullybaccart to Muihead were a bit difficult.
Back running at tomorrow evening. Can't wait to see everybody again....

On a walk

The other day, I went with my daughter in Camperdown Park, such a great park, here are some pictures..

Sunshine is back*

Last Saturday was such a lovely early spring day, we decided to leave the rabbits in the garden. Instead of running away, they lied there for hours...

Not much on offer this week-end as Cheltenham is coming in less than two weeks. My only bet would be at Navan, 5.30 Your Sum Man. Mr. Magnier is on board and the price is still quite good.
Alos I fancy Rennes to win at Auxerre. Inside information are telling me that they are on fire at the moment, despite a poor game last week...
Robben for the first goalscorer tonight at Portsmouth.
Good luck

Back to running

The injury is over and I have been trying a few runs over the past week. I have been cycling longer as the days are getting longer and especially warmer. I will have to leave the swimming aside for a while, well at least keep it to a minimum of once a week...
