Newmarket; about 12 miles from Cambridge - Home of Racing. In the rain. I grew up about 1/2 a mile from this course and yet somehow I absorbed absolutely no knowledge of horses whatsoever. Nada. Niente. So we now go racing occasionally and I use pin-sharp inspiration to pick the winner. By that I mean I actually use a pin to pick it. As all horses look alike to me I can't tell you which horse this is (I think it might be With Interest) but it won for me adding to a profitable day - I made 70% return on my stash over the course of the day. I'll leave the romantics amongst you to assume I took £1000 and the cynics to think I took a tenner.... ;p
