    The form was there BirdsNest, when the price looked big, it was worth checking her form and video of her last race, then pounce before the price went.

    The drift today was odd, given her draw, jockey, trainer and form.

    I have made a good profit for the week, already, thanks to Indie Angel, the rest of my bets are now running for free.

    Backed her in six small Stakes doubles, too.
    - four yet to run at Royal Ascot, plus Bob Olinger (Marsh) and The Mediterranean (St Leger), so I’ve got some decent horses to watch this week with a 25/1 winner running on to them.

    Just hope others liked the price and the horse and followed me in.

    I put it up in three places, as quickly as I could yesterday, on Fat Jockey….

    * on this thread,
    * on my diary and
    * on the Flat Racing thread

    as I thought she had form and potential beyond the 25/1 price, and I was trying to reach as many FJ forum members as possible.

    Seemed strange for her to drift back out today, as she was drawn on the stand side in a straight mile race on Firm ground!!!

    Anyone can ring up any Stable and they would likely to be obliged for a tour.

    No, they didn't do any that morning when I was there but I'll be sure to catch it next time

    Just thinking back to the discussion around handicap prize money, I was surprised to see the three handicaps at Ascot on Tuesday have a total pot of ?205k, which is on a par with the Cheltenham handicaps who generally carry total pots of around 75/80.
    Given the money in flat racing I assumed there would be a huge difference...

    Everyone should try and do the same. Those days are the best and emphasis just how well racehorses are treated, how much they are loved and the immensely hard work put in by everyone who works at the yards from top to bottom.
