Another wild weekend of weather with only the sport as viable entertainment. Newcastle off but the football and Rugby definitely on. All the 2s in the date this morning so I shall probably have a load of seconds. ITV7 becomes the ITV6 and one or two races with small fields despite the good prize money on offer. The Festival looms, only 16 days to the off. It would be nice to nick a bit of stake money first. Done the usual bet and have done the little patent accas on the ITV6 races. If it goes pear shaped early I will definitely be covering the remaining runners in similar little flutters. Good luck if you have a go.

Fujimoto Flyer @13/8 1.50Kempton
West Cork @13/2 3.02 Kempton
Black Corton @5/1 3.35Kempton
Ibleo @2/1 4.10 Kempton

£2 win acca 30p win doubles and trebles.

For the ITV6. With the top 3 add Puds 2.05 Lingfield, Ch'tibello 2.25 Kempton, Dubai Warrior 3.15 Kempton. 6 and 5 times done e/w on the 6 runners.

Morning, Togo, and good luck. Was just about to post on the normal Sports section, then saw your post. Two meetings lost to the weather and, as you say, some small fields, doesn't leave much for the value punter to go on. I have, however, managed to throw 4 together for the usual Lucky 15;

12.40 Kem; Earth Moor @ 12/1
1.30 Ling; Toro Dorado @ 11/2
3.35 Kem; Just A Sting @ 7/1
4.10 Kem; Keep Wondering @ 7/2

Win singles, 20p Lucky 15, £1 e.w. acca. 4 placed = £42, 4 winners = £3,933.

£2.50 e.w. Acca; Fujimoto Flyer, Watchable, Song For Someone, Buzz*, Dubai Warrior* and Just A Sting.

* denotes a treble/Trixie with Commanche Red - could realise approx £81.

Ken if you are still having trouble accessing the sub categories have you tried the Edge Beta browser? You can install it and sync all your Edge settings and favourites. You could always give it a whirl and if you don't like it just uninstall it.
Regarding Festival funds; Mon night, 6 match acca, 10 mins to go and bet's up. Checked the cash out offer and chose to let the bet run, only for one of the away sides to equalise. Tue night, another 6 match acca. 15 mins to go and bet's up. Checked cash out offer, decided to let bet run then watched as home side (from 1-0 up) let in 2 in dying stages.
Thurs night, a 7 match acca from the tea time kick offs in Europa League. Approx 15 mins to go and bet's up, although 3 of my selections are winning by a solitary goal. Checked cash out offer of £655.38 and took it. Then watched as all results remained the same! Had I not cashed out, I would have had £908 return. So, while I've boosted the Festival fund :-), I feel like a wuss for giving in and taking the cash out:-(

Bird in the hand is worth two in the bush Ken. I would have taken that cash out offer all day long........then done a little in play cover in case they all came in as well. Easy after the event though.
I was going to reinvest the £55.38 on those games, Togo, but to be totally honest, the accumulative odds were (understandably) quite short. As you say, a bird in the hand and all that.
Can't do anything with the nags but I've just had a fiver on a 2-1 win for Chelsea @ 17/2. £47.50 back. Sod the nags:-)

Same here Ken....I was only joking when I said I would have all seconds and so it comes to pass that I had 3. Not even the magical Bryony could save my skin. She of course came second. You are filling your boots on the football Ken it just doesn't grab my attention. May have a go on the Rugby tomorrow.
Just watched The Clarets do Bournemouth by 3-0 (I did my usual 2-1 bet, but as i've said on numerous occasions, the 3 points is far more important to me). I'll be watching the Leicester v Man City match while my tea is cooking so I've just done the same fiver bet on a Sky Blues 2-1 win @ 8/1.
Couple of quite contentious VAR decisions in the Burnley v Bournemouth game. Both went against the visitors with a goal disallowed and a penalty given. Both correct in my totally unbiased opinion :-)). We are starting to reverse some of the VAR decisions that were going against us in the first half of the season.
