Episode 25

July 24th, 2008

OK, Real Madrid are leading the Spanish La Liga and have a team full of “galacticos” including Ronaldo, Zidane, Figo, Raul, Carlos and of course David Beckham. But will they beat lowly placed Zaragoza in their Spanish Cup tie this evening? ÂŁ1 at 4/9 says they will.

I have also gone back on my initial decision not to back the gee-gees. Previously derided tipster Pete Wager (who has been doing very well lately and has almost doubled his initial pot of cash) tells me that “Best Mate” is a definite “cert” for the Cheltenham Gold Cup tomorrow. I took odds of 1/2 and staked ÂŁ1 so could win 50p. If I do, Pete will be back in business as official tipster to the project. I just hope my jockey doesn’t jump ship.
