2 Bets for us on Friday and a winner and a 3rd.
First up was WALKON 2pts win @ 11/4 BOG, who was a grade 1 winner over hurdles in 2009. he showed he retained ability last season even though he only ran 3 times and there was no reason he won’t make a good chaser. He won with his head in chest at a very big looking 11/4 and 5.5pts profit on the bet.
We then went to Lingfield and backed FORMIDABLE GUEST 2pts win @ 7/2. Unfortunately for us she was given a poor ride by Rob Havlin and was too far back to challenge, when Havlin eventually got her out she had to circle the field and lost too much ground eventually finishing like a train to grab 3rd and was never nearer and I can’t help thinking that cost us another winner? We will never know though? and it’s not worth dwelling on as this will happen lots more throughout the course of a year.
A good profit again on the day and i’ll take it and move on. Looks like it could be quiet after Saturday until maybe Wednesday? but I will know more nearer the time as with all our bets, price is the key.
