Hot tip for the 2.13 at Monee Valley today. Sorry, there may only be a couple of you who read this, but I am not shortening the odds by telling you which horse.
I have a bet on the Melbourne Cup if I am not working that day, but normally I would never go near a TAB, (betting shop).
But a rel told us about someone she knows who has a horse running at Monne Valley today. Always being the retentive, plan in advance person, I called into a TAB yesterday. There were details on the walls of races all around Australia, but only for that day. I asked at the counter and the nice man went to the back of the shop and brought out the sheets for the next day. I promised I would return them. I wonder if that was really allowed? After skimming through the sheets, I recognised the horse's name. I noted down the race and horse number, returned the sheets and grabbed a couple of betting cards. It didn't look like you can place a bet in advance, so I will have to go to the TAB today. The local is just a short stroll away.
I it wins, I will be happy. If it doesn't, I will have more amunition on the evils of gambling.
