So recent weeks at work have been a bit of a nightmare and last Friday I worked a 14 hour shift, not done that in a while. Not a huge deal but my day was nicely summed up when I reached my car when leaving the office after 9pm to find the windscreen and roof were literally smothered in sh*t from some extremely over fed birds. My weekend did not improve and I spent the entirety of last week working my ass off with a view to reaching this weekend just so that I could put last weeks time off out of memory.
This weekend did not start too hot either, could not sleep until after 5am on Saturday morning. I got up late and with friends busy and the wife working I decided I would study form online before shooting over to Ascot for the last day of the Royal meeting. Only problem was, after 5 mins of being online my 6 month old PC monitor just fell/came away from its stand entirely for no good reason (new monitor required). I decided I would do it the old fashioned way and study form at the track. I figured I could place some bets, have some beer and consider my draft board some more. But this was not to be… By the time I reached the station I was late, it had started to rain, I realised that I had left my train tickets at home and the train was cancelled. WTF…!!!
A little bummed I took my racing post and popped into the bookies to test my luck, I simply could not stop winning. I had a high number of winners from around the country but more satisfying were those 4 out of 5 Royal winners starting with Mahsoob (7/4) in the 2nd, followed by Snow Sky (11/1) in the 3rd. I was nowhere in the 4th but took note of the winners name “undrafted” and while I don’t back horses purely based on name I simply could not resist backing “Interception” in the 5th which won nicely @ 10/1. I finished the Royal meeting with Oriental Fox winning the last at 4/1.
The attached image shows my 1200% profit. It should cover the cost of a new monitor and a few other things along the way ; )
In truth I could not really enjoy the winning, my sister who has basically been determined to have kids for years now finally got pregnant and delivered two lovely baby girls last week but due to yet another Dr f*ck up she is still in hospital fighting for her health. Winning anything right now just seems so pointless.
Just thought I would share my good fortune, I know from years gone by that we can go months with next to no luck on the GG’s and then out of the blue and when you least expect it your selections seem all too easy.
Ps if birds sh*t on you or your car, go test your luck!
