The Tin Man wields his axe on bookmakers
15th October 2016
We had been knocking hard on the door with our big ante post Flat selections and landed a big coup on Champions Day at Ascot when The Tin Man (8/1) landed a MAX bet for us and several doubles (win and each-way) in the Champions Sprint.
We also had the 80/1 second, Growl, onside each-way, so it really was a superb result for us.
It was somewhat ironic that the two horses which have been touched off when on the verge of landing us large ante post returns this season - Growl and Brando - were the 2nd and 3rd in this race on the day when we finally landed a big chop.
The tricast (see image above) paid £4383.09 to a £1 stake (it paid £12,278.90 on the Tote, for comparison, if anyone had played it) and was a nice bonus if played on top of the singles and doubles advised to all members on the first and second.
September ended with a small profit of +3.75 pts and we're looking to protect what we've got in the next few weeks until the Flat season ends at Doncaster in November.
