I still think the government should tighten up advertising for betting.  Trying to put to one side for a minute my personal view that the guy is no better than actor than I am, it really gets my back up when during every advertisement break in every football game I have Ray Winstone prattling on about "have a bang on that" and such like.  Err yes Mr. Winstone, have many times have you been declared bankrupt ?. 

There's something very morally wrong about having him encouraging Joe Public to gamble, yet there seems to be absolutely no reaction to it, unlike when the equally talentless Kerry Katona was fronting payday loan adverts.

What I find really odd is that whilst your high street bookies now actively promote gambling as something that is socially acceptable/fun for all the family etc., you only have to set foot inside a bookies and you're generally greeted by what I can only describe as the dregs of humanity (like the guy on benefits playing the FOBTs)- which in turn serves as the perfect advertisement for discouraging people from betting.

And this comes from someone who bets most days, albeit all online.

As for Bath, far too early to tip for tomorrow's meeting given impact of likely non-runners etc.  I actually rarely bet at Bath as generally speaking I'm a layer of favourites in certain 6f & 7f races but Bath's supposed 6 furlongs in the shortest in the country (5f 161y) and having monitored results over the years my laying system never does well there.
