One selection today

Just the one runner later

Prince of Slane, in the 4.00 at Warwick, at 8/1 with Paddy Power.

He hasn't won for more than three years, but today that run will hopefully end.

Well the aim is to get the value, so that was achieved with an SP of 11/2

Sadly Prince of Slane wasn't entirely aware of what was expected of him, and finished third.

Decent enough performance though.


  1. Hi there,
    I watched the race to see how your selection went. I thought early on it looked hard work but Prince Of Slane rallied and looked to have a fighting chance coming to the last. I don't follow the national hunt but it looked a pretty poor race. Pity yours didn't run to the line as I thought you were on a winner.

    Best wishes,

  2. Cheers Jason

    Haven't seen the race myself yet, but listened to commentary and he did sound to have every chance.

    Beaten only 3 1/4 lengths, and over 3m 5 that's obviously not very far.

    Would have been a nice pick up but hey ho, on to tomorrow.
