Well a very small profit of less than a point on the day thanks to 1 winner in the lucky last at Wolverhampton.
First up was BUONA SARAH (3pts win @ 5/2 BOG returned 3/1) who I expected to follow up her win last week off only a 2lb rise in the weights. Unfortunately the race was a farce with the form that comes out of it worthless. They went an absolute crawl and it became clear that if you weren’t in the first 2 or 3 then you were going to have no hope. We were held up and along with all the runners that weren’t in the front rank we struggled to make any impression when they sprinted.
A race to forget and move on from as it was a freak result and I am sure that if they ran that race tomorrow the result would be completely different.
Next up we were on the hat-trick seeking SPINNING BAILIWICK ( 3pts win @ 7/2 returned 3/1) who is in great form at the moment, she did absolutely nothing wrong and ran up to her form. Ivory Silk however exploited her dropping mark to score well and won easily, Spinning Bailiwick beat everything else in the race and had to settle for 2nd in the end. No complaints.
Finally we had a late bet at Wolverhampton in the shape of STRABOE (3pts win @ 3/1 BOG returned 11/4) who I felt was sure to follow up a good win LTO. Shawkantango was an account bet winner for us when winning at Southwell last time and I said in the mail that he wouldn;t suit the surface. He was joint fav at the time and I couldn’t believe that the selection wasn’t shorter than the 3/1 advised. There was a late non runner Steelcut and that meant a rule4 of 10p but I will settle at 11/4 as that is what everyone will have been paid out at.
He was ok away from the wider draw and although outpaced for much of the race I knew he would be finishing, it was just a case of JP Guillambert keeping him in touch and then picking them up late on, he gave it a peach and came through in the final furlong to win pretty easily at the line.
So a very small profit on a day that could of been better but then again could of been worse. We have an account bet for sure tomorrow that has already been sent to members and the possibility of further business tomorrow after I have checked a few things and made a call or 2!!!
Hope everyone had a good day? Soon be Cheltenham 🙂
