A couple of small account bets for us today. First up was Rubenstar (1pt ew @ 13/2) he is a horse in great form at the moment and although he has gone up in the weights he is more than capable of winning again in this company, he needs a fast pace to run at as he is held up for a late run. The pace was fair and he was switched off at the back of the pack, he made his move with around 3f to run and found himself having to go wider than ideal and came home really well and just missed 3rd place by a neck!! beaten under a length.
We then went to kempton where I had some information regarding a johnston newcomer (Stagecoach Danman 1pt win @ 15/8). Now I do not bet very often on maidens and especially first time up, we have a good johnston contact though and he is never far off so i decided to back it to very small stakes. He was very green during the race.When the 2nd fav and winner went clear he wasn’t given a hard time and took 2nd. It was a really promising run and one we will recoup on at some point in the future.
