All the racing on the box
Last Saturday we started to follow the races on terrestrial television and it proved quite popular. The popularity was no doubt due to tipping one winner and four 2nd places. Those that did each way bets had a modest return on the day.
So this week I’ll be doing the same as for domestic reasons I will confined to the house and so an afternoon’s telly racing will be my lot, before venturing down to Caerffili Castle for a quite excellent fireworks display.
Hopefully there will be enough returns from the afternoon to pay for a hotdog or two, after all it is the UK sausage week.
Remember each way bets on all the horses with odds above 7/1 and with the large cards there should be plenty of these.
