The sole winning nap on Saturday came, fittingly, from Gazp, and I'm delighted to see him winning the competition for the month, and for the first time. Gaz must be close to the most consistent tipster on here for winner picking. He rarely dabbles in long-priced ones and has admirably stuck to that strategy in the face of being bushwhacked again and again by you outsider-picking gurus. Congratulations, Gaz.
I haven't yet got the new site the way I want it, so we carry on as normal here for now.
Racing Post France correspondent Scott Burton tipped Feed The Flame a couple of moths ago at 33/1, and I tried to have a tenner with Skybet, who allowed me £7.81, so I am sitting pretty on that one having missed a decent EW payment by one place with 100/1 Carolus Magnus in the Cambridgeshire. But I must say The Arc is a race I cannot ever remember backing the winner of. I probably had a pound on Mill Reef as I loved that horse, but nothing since then. So it was with some trepidation that I had a decent bet (for me) on Continuous who hits a couple of crucial marks for me - in fine recent form, and an improver. Add to that his class, speed and stamina, O'Brien and Moore, and 6/1 seemed an excellent price. Good luck whatever you're supporting.
