Great day for us today, should of been so much better aswell as we were unlucky not to land a 60/1 treble!! Advised as 1pt ew it still showed a profit of just over 2.5 pts.
First up was Circus Clown (4pts win @ 3/1) who had won last saturday in the style of an improving horse. I said in the email that he was a good thing if feeling no ill effects and a good thing he proved to be. He was heavily backed and returned 13/8, travelling like a dream throughout the race and saving ground on the inside and when he jumped the last he was going clear and won easily.
Next up was Shawkantango (2pts win @ 3/1), he was going for his 3rd win at the track and has a habit of missing the break which he did again today. I thought that had done for him as he had to be ridden up on the outside of runners! He was running on all the time though and was a decisive winner at the line.
So the treble was all going onto Kingscroft (3pts win @ 9/4). Well backed around 20mins before the race they could not give him away on-course as he drifted to 10/3 before returning 11/4. We always advise B.O.G because of possible drifts, however it’s not very often one goes off a bigger price than we advise but it’s a nice safety net incase.
Unfortunately for us Kingscroft who needed to front run, blew the start and had to be rushed around the outside at the worst possible time in the race. He was so wide I knew his chance had gone, he flew down the straight and grabbed 3rd on the line. He was a most unlucky loser even though beaten a fair distance as everything that could of gone wrong did!!
17pts profit on the day though and we needed that. We have a possible maximum bet on saturday but I will have to wait and see what price we can get first. Also more than a possibility of bets tomorrow so it could be a busy weekend.
