2 bets for us today with one well beaten and one done by a half length!
First up was Sonny G (3pts win @ 11/4 BOG returned 9/2) Well what can i say about this one? He drifted alarmingly before hand and I can only presume he has bounced? He was sat just off the leaders and travelling ok, but when the button was pressed there was absolutely nothing there. The problem is with betting in such low grade races is you can get this sort of run as the horses aren’t as consistent as better class animals. We do make money playing in these races though, so unfortunately it is part of the territory.
Next up was Captain Chris (1.5 pts ew @9/2 Bet365). I felt today was the day for him as he is crying out for a trip and is better going right handed. He travelled and jumped well today and made a move about 4 out, he was still going well with 2 to jump but unfortunately so was Medermit. The winner got away well from the last and Captain Chris was flying home on his outside, just failing to get up. If the race was another 50 yards he’d of won for sure!!
So a disappointing loss of just under 3pts on the day, not a disaster but could of been better!? We have some really nice bets lined up towards the end of this week.
Don’t miss them!!
