3 Bets for us yesterday, with 1 winner and 2 2nds! Very frustrating after getting off to such a good start.
First up was Katys Secret 1pt ew @ 8/1 r4, at Lingfield, who has been running consistently well this term, unfortunately the fav was a non runner which left us with a rule 4 and she went off an excellent sp of 11/2.
She broke well from the inside, always travelled well and asserted at the furlong pole for a smooth success and a nice winner for us.
Next up was Kumbeshwar 2pts win @ 10/3, he was getting a handy weight for age allowance and looked a good hurdler who will make a chaser, Ascot was very very testing yesterday and I did fear the worst when I saw the well backed Zaynar out in front jumping well. I thought it would be hard to pick up in this ground and so it proved with Zaynar galloping on strongly to win well, Kumbeshwar ran well though and battled on strongly to grab 2nd.
We then went to Wolverhampton for our strongest bet of the day, Wreningham 3pts win @ 9/4. He was a winner without a penalty and got the value as he was smashed into 11/8 at the off. This one really hurt as he looked to have the race all sewn up at the furlong pole trading at 1.10 in-running with the eventual winner trading at 700 in-running. His inexperienced jockey maybe should of got a little breather into him down the back as he was off like a scalded cat and in the finish he wasn’t really giving him much assistance from the saddle. That said though I know this is going to happen in such races and cannot blame him at all, we know the risks when backing apprentices and therefore have to accept that they aren’t the finished article.
So could of been a very very good day but had to just settle for the 1 winner in the end which obviously I am happy about. I am going to settle the winner at 11/2 because most members got that through BOG, as the bet was sent out just as the non runner came out.
Just another reminder that prices go back up on Jan 1st, so if you haven’t subscribed? Save some money and do so now!!!!
