Well, pretty good day for the service with just under 5pts banked with 1 winner a 2nd and a nowhere from our 3 bets.
First up was GRUMETI 1.5PTS EW @ 11/2 B.O.G, who had been quite classy on the flat. He made his hurdling debut today and I said in the email sent to members that I thought he’d become a decent hurdling prospect. Travelling supremely well off a decent pace he took it up around 2 out before powering clear to win easily.
Next up was the very consistent ELIJAH PEPPER 1PT EW @ 5/1, He has been a really grand servant and never seems to run a bad race….. Unfortunately for us he did today!! After travelled OK but a bit wide he looked in a decent position to challenge, however he didn’t pick up for whatever reason and trailed in a disappointing last. Thankfully we were only on small and I can accept the odd shocking run from one of our bets.
We finished the day at Haydock where the ground was absolutely desperate! Sydney Paget 3pts win @ 9/4 BOG who had put in 2 very impressive performances in his last 2 races and looked sure to progress today. His main rival was a very live danger in the shape of 15/8 fav Knock A Hand but he was carrying a double penalty and I was keen to take him on. Unfortunately it looked to me that he maybe handled the conditions a little better than us and although the selection traded odds on in-running and looked like he would win approaching the last hurdle….. However he couldn’t muster enough of a kick to get past the winner who deserves plenty of credit for today’s win.
So a good day with 5pts profit and i’d take that every day of the week! Just one day left to take us up on the fantastic reduced offer on membership as the prices will on up on the 1st January.
