We live in strange times. The Lincoln should have been run today at Doncaster, the traditional if not official flat racing calendar opener being the first "big" race. After a week of glorious sunshine and very warm weather it is freezing cold out with a North wind to cut you in half. Think I would be staying in if I didn't have to anyway. In view of that I have headed of to sunnier warmer climes and picked a little punt at Gulfstream Florida. The ITV7 is even covering the first 7 races in it's TV comp. So a minimum stakes flutter using my magic pin and a blindfold to make selections.

Zabava* @5/2 3.30
Overdeliver* @6/1 4.00
Temple* @8/1 4.30
Decorated Invader* @3/1 5.00
Network Effect @15/8 5.30
Rare Form @11/2 6.00
Walk In Marrakesh @4/1 6.30

Top 4* £1.00 E/W Acca. 30p Doubles and Trebles. 50p E/W on the 7 and 7 x 20p 6 Timers. Can always do a little cover punt on the last 4 if it goes West. Good luck if you have a go.

Haha......didn't have clue what I was looking at. Just noticed that there are 14 races there today, on that card, and the last one is the "Florida Derby".

The very best of British, Togo & Denton. I had a bet at Tampa Bay, yesterday and managed to get 2/4 - @ 6/1 and 11/1. No win singles, just the usual 20p L15 and £1 e.w. acca. Unfortunately only one of the other 2 placed:-(. Obviously, knowing very little about the American racing scene, all I did was to look at the top trainers and top jocks (anyone with a 20%+ record at the track) and choose what i thought were their best chances. It worked, up to a point, so i'll be using that method again today. Although i have only glanced at today's menu (plenty of time before first race) I see that, in addition to the 14 at Gulfland, there is also a card of 8 at Tampa. Some large fields, too, so i'll be kept busy for a while. Back when I've decided where to chuck my money :-)
Weirdly allowed to put Bering Strait down as my choice in first of ITV7 races, then went to put it in L15 but it was a n/r. Hate it when that happens. Guess i'm on the jolly in the first. Chosen to stay at Gulfstream for these 2 bets but will probably have a look at Tampa later.

4.00; Overdeliver @ 6/1
5.00; Summer To Remember @ 13/2
6.30; Onyx @ 5/1
7.00; Jackson @ 7/2

Win singles, 20p L15, £1 e.w. acca. 4 placed = £17, 4 winners = £2,084.

ITV7; Fav, Overdeliver, *Largent, Summer To Remember, *Chewing Gum, *American Talent & Onyx. * = Trixie/treble for a possible £226. £1 e.w. acca on the ITV7.

Once again, guys, good luck.

You can edit the ITV7 Ken when you get a non runner. I have had to do it a number of times. Not sure whether you can once the first race has started though.
Too busy listening to your Dylan link, Togo. First race over with now :-//

Lol Ken. You can watch on 365 using the "in play" facility.

Covered the last 4 after 2 seconds. Same thing would happen if they raced on the Moon. I would get seconditis.
