Ah well, isn't it nice to see those people at William Hill making so much money, £275m they are going to have made in 2010, have had to ask analysts if they don't mind revising their estimates upwards, most of the growth appears to have come from the fixed odds betting terminals in the shops - a bookies dream of course because  they can't lose, I just feel sorry for the poor punters being so systematically mugged, oh, and of course their offshore business is booming, it's racing that's been mugged there.  All seems a million miles away from the plight of the sport upon which they built their empire.... I closed my account with them many years ago when they refused to pay out on a legitimately placed wager with their rails representative at Ayr.. ho ho.
Off to Newcastle now, really looking forward to this horse running, let's hope all goes smoothly, back here Daasij, Northern Flame and Commercial Express all worked well on the grass, was delighted with all three, others cantered on the grass and those that worked yesterday had a well-earned day off hacking around the countryside.
